The Dogs’ Names

Odie: Of course, his name is gotten from Odie Dog, from the Garfield comics, because Odie slurps a lot. In fact, I named him Odie before we knew he slurps! 😮

Pinkie: Her name’s gotten from Pinkie Pie from MLP:FIM. I already wanted to name a dog Pinkie, so… 😉

Ruby: Ruby’s name was gotten from two previous dogs who my mother used to have at different times. (So my mom named three dogs Ruby in her lifetime. Wow. 😛 )

Ruby Image!

Only one, but it’s a good picture of Ruby (who was born on March 1st, actually), and it also shows part of her cage.


Those are some of the toys of Ruby. The pink lid is rarely used now since it was bitten hard by the pups, and the yellow rope is for Ruby to bite (Ruby bites hard; kind of an understatement 😉 ). She now also has a green ball and one of the two white balls (the other white ball is for Odie and Pinkie).

Ruby loves to play with the mug, and so Pinkie and Odie love it too. They chase the mug and Ruby around the house. Ruby also hasn’t mastered the art of jumping on the bed yet, but she tries really hard… 😉 Sometimes, Ruby gets angry at Odie and Pinkie for jumping on the bed. 😛

More pictures coming later. 😉

Game Recommendation #1

LDW (Last Day of Work)’s games are great! They’re all simulations and one of them is even a free full game on their official site! It’s called Fish Tycoon and you can download it here. 🙂

It’s a game about breeding fish and taking care of them. You basically have to find all the seven magic fishes to win the game, and afterwards, for fun, you can try to find all 441 fish! 😀

There’s a free Flash version available at many sites which is basically a demo for the full game (which used to cost money, of course). There’s also a new (released this year) sequel to Fish Tycoon, but it’s only for mobiles at the moment, so… 😉 (But you may want to give it a try if you’re reading this on a phone or tablet, which you most likely are 😉 ).

There’s more at the link above. Go download Fish Tycoon now (and check out their other games while you’re at it! Plant Tycoon’s also recommended)! 😀

In other news…

Pinkie and Odie are now 9 months old. 😀

Ruby, the 2 month old German (actually Indian) Spitz pup, is a vacuum cleaner. She likes to collect dust from around the house and try to chew on it. We have never failed so far at catching Ruby dust-mouthed. 😉 😛 She also loves to bite a lot, but that’s just because she’s teething, so it’s normal. We have been dissuading her from biting our hands (and other not allowed objects) though. Also, toilet training has been difficult; she keeps peeing in the cage (which is the same cage as Odie and Pinkie’s cage, but since Pinkie and Odie, the twins, are almost always outside now, and we don’t want to spend too much money…). Sometimes she pees in the right place though, so she’s making progress! 🙂 Also, Ruby plays tug-of-war sometimes with Odie and Pinkie.

I prefer WordPress over Wix. While Wix is still great (mostly for its customizing features), one problem is that you can’t open new tabs while using Wix sites. Instead, you have to click on a menu button and the page goes to a new page. You can’t middle-click, or right-click and click on Open New Tab, on these buttons. Also, the editor is a bit too laggy to use often, and I had overlaying issues with the logo since I had to make a separate background for the logo and sometimes the text wouldn’t show in front of the separate orange background.

See ya for now! 🙂

Pseudo-video of the Lhasas

Here it is.

It’s not a video of our pups, but it’s a video of a dog who looks like our Lhasas. His name is Cotton, and his channel is quite new. It’s updated roughly monthly, not weekly (unlike what the channel banner says). I was searching for videos of Lhasa Apsos today, and I found this video and showed my family it.

Cotton looks almost exactly like our pups, but he has no markings. Our dogs have markings. Specifically, Pinkie has a big black marking covering her left (our right) half of her face (including ear), while Odie has black ears, two circles around his two eyes (the two circles don’t touch), a black spot on the forehead, an almost heart-shaped stripe around his back, and his butt is fully black (and half his back legs too, and half his tail also).

There are no direct pictures of our puppies because my brother is not transferring the pictures from his computer to mine, because he is lazy. ;P
