July 28,2009. Jerilee Gayle Yap or "Gay" as how everyone calls her, and I have a co-owned dog, a red miniature pincher or mini pincher named Maia. Maia lives with Gay. One morning, Gay texted me that Maia had delivered a puppy. We never knew that Maia is pregnant but Gay had a hunch though. Its a boy! a black mini pincher puppy. Why black? the great grandmother is a black mini pincher named "elektra", who also lives with Gay; the diva; and the queen of all the dogs in the house. Anyways, we were so happy that finally Maia now have her own puppies, but wished she had more. After almost a day of waiting, 7 pm., gayle texted me to come over her place, Maia is about to deliver another puppy and asked me to come over and bring some "carton" or cardboard. So i hurried, looked for "carton" where Maia and the puppies could lay. But i was too late, Maia had delivered 2 more puppies and both were already dead. But the consolation is, at least we had 1.

this is
maia and her black pup

Gay feeding the puppy since maia doesn't know yet how to breastfeed .

2 days after the delivery,
Gay texted me that we need to go see a veterinarean to have the puppy checked. The puppy had reddish colored stools. But i read the message late, they have already gone to the veterinarean. The puppy is hypothermic, he had to be wrapped in a warm towel for a minute every 15 minutes. She was well taken cared then.

August 03, 2009, 7:06 AM, the puppy was pronounced dead. To you, whom we plan to call Lucas, and to the 2 puppies who didn't make it, you are now angel puppies who somehow brought excitement to our lives. And to his father, Lance , who had been lost for several weeks now, we hope and pray that you are well taken cared of.

I had the most, if not the most but one of the most embarrassing and depressing moments of my life last Saturday (july 25, 2009). I won't go into details about that because that's not the story. Anyways, my sister ,ditse Lilian Nalupa-Divinagracia or mahdicci as I would love to call her, is always there to cheer me up. Well, "watamahgunnahdowidawtmahdicci" ! She knows just how to ease me up, make me laugh and simply divert my thoughts and feelings from whats bothering me. Paola, Tessa, and Iki (son and daughters of tito Ringkoy Dumadag and tita Margie Corales- Dumadag) who came home here in Bohol from Frederick , Maryland for a vacation, came by for a visit and handed me a package. A package from mahdicci . Yay! Ayang,the youngest daughter of the Dumadags, was supposedly there to hand me the package together with the other siblings , but she fell asleep on the laps of her papa Ringkoy in the car. Time-check, this is now Sunday (July 26) approximately 8pm. Anyways, to continue, the kids handed me the gifts one by one as instructed by mahdicci. And as instructed , they had to see me open each gift.

Yeah, i know its not for me. its for a friend of mahdicci. The kids had to hear me count the money.

Each shoe, not pair of shoes but each shoe was wrapped separately so it would look like she sent me lots of gifts. It was a lot though but she wants it to look like its more than i think it was.

i got 3 pairs of shoes and i adore them a lot. i just have to wear my sunglasses with this one.

At last, i get to have these lip tintmarkers. I've been wanting and longing for these for 3 years. My sister ,the eldest sister Ma. Aimee Nalupa-Bagnol, or should i say, mahAte introduced me to this product. It doesn't spill or smudge anything in your bag; you can use it as a lipstick or a cheek tint; the tint leaves on longer than you think and aaaay just luuuuuuuv it. I've had several people asked to find me this product for 3 years, since the day it ran out of ink... Finally!

I used to drink Crystal Light Lemonade which my mother Flaviana Lawson sent me, but i haven't tried their Iced Tea yet.

Wheat bread with peanut butter and mayo, paired with Crystal Light Iced tea . I don't like it, mahdicci because, i luuuuv it.

After opening each gift,
mahdicci and i chatted and then slept with my 3 new pairs of shoes, my liptintmarkers and the Iced tea beside me.
