Since my dad, Kevin, is Malaysian Chinese we all celebrate the Chinese New Year in our house. My dad prepares the traditional Hotpot meal which consists of a lot of different kinds of food, including meat and fish balls, mushrooms, cod, sliced beef, tofu, and all kinds of vegetables. Each person at the table chooses from all the ingredients and cooks his own, in the big pot which contains the broth. Unfortunately, I wasn’t allowed to do that. But I did help in preparing the meal. My job was to make sure none of the food fell to the floor!
Here is a picture of the table at our celebration. I know you can’t see me, but I’m there. I’m under the table, in case something falls off the table. Don’t worry though. I enjoyed my own dog friendly meal after the hotpot.

I’m sorry for being a little late posting these pictures, but the Chinese New Year celebration lasts for 2 weeks and we are still celebrating. So Happy Chinese New Year of the Rabbit to all of my friends!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. My dads got up this morning to help prepare for the Thanksgiving feast, but I decided to stay in bed for a while. After all, I’m not much help cooking, but I am more than happy to help with the eating. I’m having my own turkey dog food for my Turkey Day dinner.
I hope all of my human friends have a wonderful Thanksgiving and the furry members of their families have a special treat to celebrate this day of sharing, and giving thanks for all we have.
Ever since we were little puppies we loved to be picked up by our humans, especially Cato. When Cato was younger he just loved to be held and carried by everybody. Now that we are both over 40 lbs. it is a little difficult for our humans to pick us up and carry us around, but Kevin does once and awhile. Lucky is a little nervous, but Cato doesn’t want to get down. When our humans are sitting on the couch we have to sit on top of them all of the time. Do you think we’re spoiled?
Every time one of my humans sit at the kitchen table Lucky and I watch them in case they are eating something. As soon as we hear the noise of bags or boxes opening or the we see any kind of food or snacks we immediately run to the table. Neither one of us want to have our humans eat alone!
