We have four new "members" of the family -- two young cats and two puppies. All from our farm caretakers in Bugallon, Pangasinan. The two kittens were given by Nong Endring while the two puppies were from our previous dog Jenny, who was taken cared of by Danny. The kittens have been with us for about six weeks now, the puppies for nearly one month now.
Bien sometimes enjoys the antics and plays of the two cats.
But most of the time, she's scared that the cats might accidentally scratch her, so she seldom holds the two felines.
The cats are somehow trained already not to scratch people, or even playful biting.
The two puppies, both black females. Elle Marie is very proud of the two dogs, here taken two days ago outside her school. I brought the two dogs so Elle can show them once again to her classmates.
We give the dogs a bath once a week. Elle cuddles the dogs after a bath, covering them with a towel as the dogs still shiver in cold.
She likes holding the one with partly white feet. She calls her "Shiver", the other, all black, is "Cold," Witty names given by the girls.
The puppies playing with Elle, pulling her hair. See Elle's tickled happy face. I love it.
She asks me if she can retain the two dogs until they grow big. We've had several pairs of puppies before, about two batches already, but when the puppies grow bigger, they become more noisy and bark louder. So I brought them to the farm and help guard my treehouse there.
So this time, Elle wants assurance that the two puppies will not go to the farm when they grow big. Still a question mark for me. :-)
