Gone to Boracay

We apologize for not visiting your blog and leaving comments because our hoomans went on a holiday vacation to Boracay. This tourist destination is known all over the world for its white sandy beaches. Mom had to borrow a picture from the internet to show you. Oh, she did bring her Nikon DSLR with her, but the only picture she took was that of this cat outside their hotel room. Lame.


P. S.

Boracay is about 5 hours drive from the city of Iloilo, which is the Secretary's hometown.The Animal Doc mentioned that Mom kept fretting during their trip because dogs loitered in the highway and seemed to be oblivious of speeding busses, trucks and cars behind them. Fortunately the hoomans did not see any fresh road kill.

Mom said the dogs in the rural areas were taller and more muscular than city stray dogs. Food is probably sufficient because people in the farm keep livestocks and grow their own rice and vegetables. The fields are also vast enough for dogs to run and exercise. Mom saw a dog running down a hill. She also saw dog trying to engage a carabao to play. The poor dog was play bowing repeatedly, but the big black beast just ignored him. It was a funny sight, Mom goshed.

I wish city dogs like us could one day go to the farm, smell fresh clean air, and run like crazy in the rice fields. But I would like to see the beach, before anything else.

  1. Hi, Scarlet!
    Sure they had a well deserved holiday time!
    I wish I could go to a farm area too!
    We live in the middle of a city with no place to run free and have fun!
    Do you have any news about your wheelies??

  2. Hello Scarlet!
    Happy New year to you and your family. Worry not, you will soon be able to get around. We are excited for that and for sure, your pawrents will take you to places especially the beach! We also hope to see the sea and sand one day soon although mommy is saying that we can enjoy the sun and the garden hose for showers for now. Waaaaah Well, alright, with zoom zoomies, those are our little joys in life now.
    Hope your pawrents had a great vacation. =)

  3. That was a beautiful place to visit! I imagine those rural living dogs and cats have a good time running free. Maybe you will get to see those sights one day, Scarlet.
