My Funny Friend

Having a large dog like Odyssey has been life-changing. She will be one next month. Everything is all about her. So is this post.
At my office pantry. Yes, I work at a pet-friendly office. 

Odyssey in one of her hydro-therapy session. She's not a big fan of swimming. She whined and always wanting to come out from the pool.

Odyssey at Cubs & Cups.

Odyssey, the most submissive dog ever, submitting to the resident Husky at Cubs & Cups.

Odyssey at no-leash dog park when she holds a membership. She's trying to retrieve the floating coconut miserably. That's the furthest she went.

This funny face sleeping.

 Posing with her spanking new backpack BF got her when he was in Los Angeles last month. BF bought so many things for her, I only got one lousy mug.

There are days she just likes the curtain over her head when she sleeps.

Her first time having her face blown by the wind during the car ride to the dog park.

Being a cute dog is a tiring business.

True outdoor dog - the longing to be out there is big.

Aussie Health

Sydney was really awesome, we shopped like crazy - from vacuum cleaner to plant seeds.
One of the things we purchased when we were there was this: Kapaipuku blend. The boyfriend no longer needs coffee in the morning to boost his day whilst I'm more alert than usual. I don't get hungry quick too.
We bought 2kg of it but that just lasted us for about 2 weeks and it's not that cheap thus I did my own blend. I renamed it to Puku Puku (means Stomach Stomach in Maori)

 I got most of the ingredients from an organic store: I could not find rice bran and I bought the wrong amaranth.

Ratio is 1:1. For raisins, I used 3:4.

Looks almost the same!

Summer Seoul

The main reason why we visited Seoul - a wedding.

Odyssey's follow-up x-ray showed the worst scenario - her joint is dislocated and the socket has flattened. There is nothing much the ortho surgeon can do for now. Odyssey doesn't seem to be in pain and another surgery isn't needed. I feel shit about myself for letting this happened. I should have been stricter with her. We will be going for physiotherapy, most likely hydrotherapy to strengthen her muscles and joints and hopefully she won't be needing another surgery.
So yeah.

What We've Been Up

Erm... nothing much.

Ody posing with some of her toys.

Because the BF's shirt was lying on the sofa.

What I've been picking up lately. Learnt it at school 20 years ago. My muscle memory is superior. :D

Scarves. From top: my sister's, mine and the BF. Yes the BF has the flashy one, requested by himself.

Welcome Home Odyssey~!

Odyssey came home on Sunday after her surgery. Her stitches look great and neat, no signs of infection or whatsoever. Turned out she had DPO, instead of TPO. 

 One of the 2 incisions made for her surgery .

Visited her on her second day after surgery. She was in good shape.

The clinic's dog - super friendly but gets startled easily.

 She demanded more petting from me.

Meanwhile at home, we set up Odyssey's recovery area. She didn't really like the spot we chose so we have move to her usual spot.
