I got all zombie in Ace Hardware one morning after my night shift work. I know, I know. Ace Hardware when I should be at some highly specialized pet store? Anyway, I bought Lancaster his first puppy shampoo, a poop bag, the works. I also bought him this mint-flavored edible bone for teething which he would run away from for 2-3 days. Then I saw him tearing into it after a while.

I know he likes to bite around, even biting on my feet and legs, but sometimes I need to remind myself that I am no walking dog bone. And it's about time I distract him from peeing on my bed. He's done so 4 friggin' times already! Someone help me!

SCENE 1:

Lancaster starts off looking really cute. You let him inside your room, onto your bed, and then he stares at you for less than a minute.

SCENE 2:

Next thing you know, he goes for your hand, your face, you neck. He attacks you (in his eyes he's playing with you). It was a good thing that he's still got puny fangs.

SCENES ONWARDS:

He then goes for your pair of socks which you laid out for work later. He munches, bites, pulls with all his might.

END MOVIE

LAZY AFTERNOON FOR A LAZY PUP
One lazy Saturday afternoon, I woke up to the sight of Lancaster on my small-sized white carpet. He was uncharacteristically not playful, so I figured to get him worked up. I grabbed a local show business magazine from the sala and oriented him with local celebrities featured on its pages.

I let him check out the girls. When he saw singer-actress Sarah Geronimo, he became restless, scratching himself silly. Seeing young actress Kim Chiu's picture, Lancaster became uninterested. When he saw actress Marian Rivera, however, he showed signs of interest by sniffing her, er, the image I mean.

According to dog enthusiasts, Japanese spitz dogs are natural comedians, but when Lancaster saw an image of comedian Vhong Navarro, he froze. I hope not in fear of. LOL!

LANCASTER: 'WHO LET ME OUT?
Pets of any kind were not allowed in our home until Lancaster came. I remember my dad getting all upset whenever the idea of owning a pet was brought up when we were kids.

I vividly remember my cousin Cherry bringing to us a puppy for us to own when I was in grade school. It was so playful.. Unfortunately, my dad wanted the poor puppy out within the day.  And so, it had to go.

There was also an instance when a storm was brewing outside and I saw a rain-soaked baby kitten outside of our house. I took it in and wrapped it in a soft blanket. I gave it milk and let it sleep by the laundry area away from the eyes of my dad. Soon, though, he noticed it and stared at it for so long while I was attending to the kitten. After an epic silence, he said, "Okay, let it stay over for the night. By morning, it needs to go."

I had to wait two decades more before I could introduce a pet at home. By this time, the family has become open to any possibilities in life, even open to owning a pet such as Lancaster. I named him after a hotel that I was supposed to stay in for a week when my cousin Cherry's Aussie step mom Donna visited our home to stay for seven days. The original owner called him Sam, but I wanted Lancaster because it's more elegant-sounding and longer than the usual pet names.

This post is long-overdue. Lancaster arrived in our home last week Monday. He's been a week with us now. He was born last July which makes him two months old so far. He's been dewormed already and is due for a regular check up with the vet next week.

That's the most of the action that he gave on his first day. I woke up with the original owner turning him over to my mom. I quickly grabbed the blue container I set aside for him to temporarily rest in and placed him inside. He was, as expected, melancholic. He just stayed inside the container for most of the day.

Later, I grabbed Lancaster and showed him my room. He immediately jumped on the bed and curled up. He was quiet for most of the day.
