As promised pictures from our pre-natal class reunion.

Roger, Tracey and Malcolm went to the pre-natal class reunion yesterday at BC Women's Hospital. They were reunited with the groups from their classes last year. They said that it was nice to hear all the different stories and experiences all the other parents went through. Almost every baby arrived early except for one, they all seem to be doing quite well. Also coincidently, three babies were born weighing the same as Malcolm, 6 pounds 12 ounces, neat huh! Here are the pics as promised.

Down the line:

Here are William and Malcolm together:

Roger's going to BNO.

For those of you who don't know, BNO stands for Boys Night Out. Every last Saturday of every month Roger and his friends get together to chew the fat, eat, drink and partake in some male bonding. I wish I could go, but Malcolm and I have to stay home.

During the last few months BNO was temporarily suspended, but now that it's 2007 they've brought it back again. I think Roger said that they may go to the Giants game or maybe even go-karting. Although they try to plan the activities, they often just play it by ear.

On Saturday morning, Roger, Tracey and Malcolm are going to have a pre-natal class reunion at BC Women's Hospital. This will give them a chance to see all the other babies and parents that took part in the classes. I'm sure that there will be pictures of the event soon. In the meantime here are some more pics:

Yesterday was Tracey's Birthday.

Mmmmm, yesterday we went to Grandma and Grandpa's house to celebrate Tracey's birthday. Grandma gave me some pork scraps leftover from dinner, it was so delicious. I know I shouldn't be begging for food, but it's irresistable. Roger had to put me in a down - stay to keep from the dinner table. :(

Tracey said that she had a great birthday this year, she and Roger were able to enjoy a nice dinner on Saturday night at the Boathouse. She also said that she received some very nice gifts from her whole family. Incidently, Malcolm celebrated his 11 week birthday on Sunday too. Here are some more pictures:

Hey Malcolm is 10 weeks old today!

Whoo hoo, 10 weeks old. That boy is growing like a weed. I heard he was such a good little boy yesteday at Shabusen for Fabiana's birthday dinner, as they all played "Pass the baby on the left hand side". Now if he would only start sleeping.

Feeling much better.

A week ago I was at the vet and, I can tell you, being home is a lot better. Roger and Tracey are happy that the vomiting has stopped. I'm still taking some antibiotics, I think there are only two left. Roger is sneaky, he puts the pill in a little ball of meat, I know it's there, shhh don't tell him. This way I get a special treat twice a day.

Oh, the snow is back again accompanied by chilly temperatures, I think it was minus 6 degrees today. The snow has covered the streets and sidewalks of Vancouver. It sticks to me when I'm out walking and then do my legs ever weigh a ton! Roger had an idea and put a pair of Malcolm's socks on me before our walk, but they fell off in the snow. Malcolm and Tracey are feeling slightly better, but they both still seem to have stuffy noses. We've all been hoping that Malcolm would start sleeping through the night, but we haven't had much luck in that department. His sleep sessions seem to vary between 2-4 hours. Here are some new pics; Malcolm will be 10 weeks old tomorrow.

Had to see the vet and stay at the hospital.

I spent three days at Atlas Animal Hospital. Roger took me there because I kept throwing up at home. I really scared Roger and Tracey when I threw up some blood. At the hospital, they took x-rays and did blood tests and put an IV drip in my paw. It's a good thing I'm not a show dog because they had to shave the hair on my leg to insert the IV. It turns out that I have a stomach infection and after taking some antibiotics I should be as good as new. Was I ever glad to see Roger and Tracey when they picked me up yesterday. It's not very fun to stay at the hospital with strangers; I missed my toys, food and peeps! I've been spending a lot of time napping since I got home and am feeling much better now. Here' s a picture of me before my IV bandage came off.

The boys not feeling well.

I don't know what it was, but Malcolm and I didn't feel well last night. Malcolm was up almost all night, poor Roger and Tracey. It sounds like he caught Tracey's cold, his stuffy little nose was keeping him up. I on the other hand felt sick in my tummy. Tracey did her best to keep me from getting sick, but I ended up throwing up on the carpet, (sorry Roger and Tracey for the mess). Maybe some 'bug' is going around and we ended up catching it. It's not good when 3/4 members of the household are sick. I better keep my paws crossed for Roger, poor guy had to go to work with less than 4 hours sleep. Sometimes we're trouble.

Happy New Year everyone! (Sehe Bokmanee Bateuseyo)

Happy New Year to all of you out there. Can you believe that 2006 is over? It has been a pretty eventful year with the arrival of my little brother Malcolm, who is incidentally 8 weeks old now. His chubby little cheeks and chubby little legs are sure filling out. On behalf of our family here in Vancouver, we would like to wish everyone a very prosperous and joyful 2007. Here are some more pics:
