Loyal Friend III

On the fifth day after Scott went to the US. We were on the roof.

“I wonder where Scott has gone…”

After sunset, Kona and I went downstairs. But Lupita didn’t come with us and stayed on the roof by herself. She has never been alone on the roof like this before.

…After two hours, she still didn’t come down. I went up to the roof to see what she was doing.

In the dark, I found Lupita curled up on the chair.

On this chair, you get the best overall view of the front of our house. On this chair, you can see Scott coming home faster than anybody.

“Lupita, Scott won’t come back tonight. Come downstairs with me, please, Lupita…”

Through a Gap in the Door

“It’s about time for a walk. I’ll stretch and wait here.”

.....dead quiet...

“Hey, aren’t you taking me out for a walk?”

Dazzling Late Afternoon

We went for a walk in late afternoon.

The setting sun was dazzling.

Kona showered by rays of sunlight and…

Lupita with her long shadow.

I don’t see Lupikona nestling close like this very often. Lupikona, please stay together like this a little longer.

Moon Orchid

The orchid we bought last year bloomed.

It still has many buds. I will be happy if all of them open.

This is Lupikona’s new toy, Kong.

“Lupita, we are going to put this cookie inside the Kong.”

“R...Really?” Lupita was amazed.

Lap, lap, lap!

“Can I get the cookie out?”

Although we gave them one Kong each,

Kona always wants to play with what Lupita is playing with.

Have a Good Day! 5

“Have a good day!” Kona followed Scott to the edge of the deck.

“Alas, he is gone…”

Kona turned around and said, “Hey, Lupita…

I’m lonely now!”

“Will you sit with me?”

They were shooting wedding photos. Lupikona could not play in the river.

The couple was very…

Hide and Seek

“Ready or not, here I come!” said Lupita.

“Not yet!” said Kona.

“Ok, I’m ready!” Kona hid.

“Ready or not, here I come!” said Lupita.

“Where is Kona?”

“Is she hiding here?”

“Hey, Kona! I found you!” Lupita said.

“Haha, you found me!” Kona popped her head out of the bush.

Playing hide and seek is fun!

Family Jog

We woke up early and went jogging.

Are you ready to run?

Scott running with Lupita.

I ran with Kona.

Scott’s knee hurts. I was out of breath. We walked on the way back.

We got our day off to a good start. Let’s do it again!

Rainy Sunday II

It was raining when I woke up this morning.

“Gee, it’s raining!”

Lupita walking in her raincoat.

In the afternoon, it suddenly started raining heavily.

“That’s no fun…”

Lupikona play-fighting inside.

“Did it stop raining?”

Lupikona smelling the greenery after the rain.
