Miss You More Than Ever Tintin

My dog Tintin passed away last Wednesday, a few minutes before I left for work, my sister told me she waited for me to let her go. And I believe she fought for her life for as long as she could, because I said so…up to now we really can’t tell the cause of her death. I guess it wouldn’t matter anymore since she is in a better place now.

It all happened so fast, last Sunday she just stopped eating, she would just drink water. My friend told me to give her dextrose and so I did…we gave her vitamins, antibiotics and Quantumine but I guess it was really her time. 2 days at least before her death I’ve been crying and begging for her to fight and stay, but whenever I look into her eyes I know that she is experiencing a terrible pain.

Mum said she might have internal hemorrhage – it’s hard for me to explain and I really don’t want to know why she died. I felt bad that I wasn’t able to bring her to the doctor…I told her that I will bring her to the Vet as soon as I have my salary – which was Friday of that week, but she can no longer wait.

See that’s the thing with death, you know that it can happen anytime but no matter what…you are still left unprepared for it.

Her real name is Satine, after watching Moulin Rouge we thought of giving her that name…but eventually we all call her Tintin. Our neighbor gave her to us, Tintin’s mom is a poodle making her a half poodle half pinoy dog 🙂 I thought she was a Japanese spitz, but she’s not. Her eyes are so round that makes her so cute!

We have her for 10  years and  she was like a real baby for me. She’s the quiet type of dog, she doesn’t play a lot, whenever Brownout and Goldee would tease her she would just walk away and sleep, but when she barks, oh boy! She can really get the hell out of you, but it’s easy to ask her to stop (sometimes)

Unlike the other 2 dogs that we have, nasa tricycle palang ako nasa labas na ng bahay yung dalawa, si Tintin hindi, nakasilip lang sa pintuan. She wont run to me like Goldee does na kulang nalang e magpakarga sa’ken, while Brownout would normally stand and scratch my arms and tummy, what I do is I will ask the 2 dogs to go inside and then just spend a few moments with Tintin outside, she would have her head on my legs like asking me to massage her – she and Brownout loves it kapag minamasahe yung ulo nila.

Kapag kumakain kami behave lang si Tintin, she would usually stay on my side while we’re eating, pag feeding time siya ang huling binibigyan ng food kasi pag nauna siya, aagawan siya nung dalawa and since siya yung pinakamabait at hindi lumalaban, siya nalang yung last – she would jump kapag papunta na si Mama sa kainan niya.

Gustong gusto niya matulog sa sofa, kaya lang lagi siyang pinapababa ni Mama kasi nga yung balahibo niya maiiwan dun, but when Mum’s not around, pinapahiga ko dun si Tintin, magkatabi kami while I’m watching TV.

Super inalagaan siya ni Mama, actually silang lahat naman. I’ve been crying everyday ever since she died, I miss her so bad. One time I saw a stray dog, sabi ko sana yun nalang yung namatay , wala naman kasi nag-aalaga dun.

Pagkauwi ko from work, minsan hinahanap ko pa din siya –  a lot of things reminds me of her. Pag napaguusapan ang aso, nalulungkot ako agad. I know I still have Brownout and Goldee,but my life is not the same anymore.This is the worst feeling I ever had, honestly I never felt this sad in my entire life. When my father left us for the second time, I didn’t cry. It was easy for me to accept that,because I know that everything happens for a reason….but Tintin’s death is different, I was really heartbroken.

Mr.Big said he’ll buy me a poodle, but I said no, I guess not this time. I want to spend more time with Brownout and Goldee.

I terribly miss you Tintin…thank you that you were once my baby dog. You will always be in my heart.

Part 3

Here comes the 3rd part of bonding-with-my-cousins entry. I am so in the mood of updating my blog,despite the fact that I’m a little hungry, he he. Oh well, I may not have enough time tomorrow because I might be busy, me and Mama will go to the bank and I might see a doctor…my DOB is back! I mean, difficulty of breathing, when it’s extremely hot I’m having a hard time breathing – I hope it’s not that serious, I’m a bit scared…what if I have heart or lung problems? Aaaah! Would that mean I have to say goodbye to happy foods? I hope not!

Anyway here are the happy pictures!

yay! my jumpshot!

me and Oliver – yet another jumpshot 😀

 eating the famous “dirty icecream” or some would call it “tililing icecream”. Not the usual icecream you buy in groceries.

Me: WTH? Can’t believe he’s taller than me…he’s only 16 yrs old & I’m 25?!?!

Oliver : Ha ha ha

Oh well!

I used to carry him when he was still a baby, now it’s the other way around 🙂

My sister Lalayne and her partner JP (our photographer),hot afternoon eh.

This is Lola Remy and my Lola (Felicidad) and my smiling Mama behind them. I think it was Mama who told me that my grandparents met each other on Lola Remy’s wedding day 😀 – err,my Mum is all smiley but the Grannies are not.

Now they’re happy! 😀 My grandmother has been smoking ever since she was 12 years old – but her children are NON-SMOKERS! So good thing!

Mama and her cousin (oh, I forgot her name, she is Lola Remy’s daughter) , she told me that she used to take care of me when I was a baby while my Mama is pregnant with my sister. She told me that I was such a cute baby – until now

oh yeah! I know I have a baby picture somewhere…I’ll look for it and I will have it here in my blog.

Last picture before we left.

The Love Birds – on our way home.

Another waiting shade…echos lang…

This is the end of our 3rd day in Pangasinan., will blog about the 4th day soon!

Ciao everyone…I feel good after looking at these pictures again, makes me wanna go back to Pangasinan, far from this busy life in Manila – and just relax…

until I get tired of relaxing 😀


Tangled (movie)

I just saw this movie today and the kid in me was really happy. I was literally laughing all the time, not to mention I was watching it with my younger cousins…so they were laughing as well without really fully understanding the story. Why did I say so? Because Andrei kept asking me about how the story is going…thank you Zeus for the “pause” , whenever he would ask questions I would just press that button, explained to him the story then play the movie again, it took almost 2 hours off of their time ha ha they should be studying but Ate Joyce is such a B.I. 😀

I saw the trailer I think late last year or early this year but never had the chance to see it on the big screen – I guess I was too busy, but most of the time I’d rather watch movie alone (or with my family) at home, so I can pause the movie anytime , specially when I need go to the loo. I wont have to be bothered by the other people around me and I can turn up and down the volume whenever I want to.

The movie is about Rapunzel (obviously) , who got a magical hair…so Gothel, the villain kidnapped her and kept her in the tower, basically using her so she wont grow old.Apparently though, the guy who rescued her is not a prince but a thief…but he didn’t actually have any plans of rescuing her, he was just hiding.

They made a deal that if Flynn(or Eugene, which is his real name) will take her to the “floating lights” she will give him back the crown he took from the castle.

Rapunzel has an iguana and I never thought that iguanas can be as cute as that…

It’s musical too, well Mandy Moore is Rapunzel, so a lot of singing!

I’ve laughed so much because of Maximus, the horse.

and I totally love this part – The Floating Lights

Looks so magical right? Oh well, its supposed to be that way.

Eventually Rapunzel and Flynn realized how bad Gothel is. When Flynn was about to be punished, well he was able to escape with the help of the people from Snuggly Duckling Inn and Maximus he run off to the tower again this time with the intent of rescuing Rapunzel – Gothel stabbed him – Rapunzel begged so she can heal Flynn with her hair – Flynn cut her magical hair though – Gothel,shocked and transformed to her real age,but fell off from the tower.

Since Rapunzel realized that she is the lost princess they went back to the castle – lived happily ever after.

Although I’m not really a fan of cartoon movies,because too much color can irritate my eyes ( I have super bad eyesight,both are at 5.00 ) I still like this movie, it made me laugh.

Would I want something magical like Rapunzel’s hair or maybe magical tears? Why not, I mean if that can heal sickness…but I wont definitely use it to keep myself young and pretty. I don’t want to not grow old.

I’ve seen Pirates of the Carribean 4 as well, last week…that movie was so effin long though…but will still try to say something about it soon.

It’s the freakin weekend baby I’m about to have me some fun”  (from R.Kelly’s Ignition) and having fun means catching up with my sleep – hibernate – will sleep for 10 to 12 hours, ha ha…ciao everyone!
