Nice to See You Again

This is something that happened when I took Lupikona to the beach one day before I went to Japan for the CNY holiday.

We saw Max again. He has a similar pattern and color as Lupita. Kona was chasing behind him. They already became friends.

Lupita looks feminine when she is with Max, doesn’t she?

This is Reni. She is as quiet and calm as a statue.

Lupikona said hi to Reni’s owner.

On this day, Reni’s owner told me that she decided to keep Max. Max doesn’t have a loving home.

I’m happy for you, Max!

Evening Nap

It was Lupikona’s after-dinner nap time. Here’s something I don’t see every day.

Kona normally doesn’t climb into Lupita’s bed. In spite of that, she was sleeping with Lupita in Lupita’s bed.

Were you guys sleeping together like this while staying in the boarding house for many nights?

You feel secure and warm when you can feel each other, don’t you?

We are Home, We are Late

I ran a fever on the evening before we supposed to fly back to Hong Kong. Although I really wanted to come home to see Lupikona and wished my mind could overcome my body, I had to stay in bed for two more days in Tokyo. Sob. Anyhow, Scott nursed me back to health and we got back to Hong Kong in one piece today. Lupita and Kona are well.

After we picked up Lupikona, we went straight for a walk.

Everyone was happy.

Kona smiled.

After getting home, the dogs felt relieved and dropped into a deep sleep.

Home, sweet home.

It's snowing in Tokyo tonight.

The Hong Kong weather report said it was 7℃ in Lupikona district today which is very cold for Hong Kong. Are Lupikona staying warm in the boarding house there?

Because Lupikona are not here with me, I will cover another topic from the dog park that I went to last week.

Lupita said hi to a retriever and...

sniffed her back.

Lupita’s pointed muzzle was half-buried in her fur. Does she smell that good?

Cool Down

Scott and I are in Tokyo for the Chinese New Year holiday. Lupikona are staying in Hong Kong.

Since I arrived Tokyo, it’s been raining and very cold.

Well, the day I took Lupikona to the dog park several days ago was a very warm day.

Running around under the sun made Lupikona feel hot. They cooled down under the shade.

Lupita is good at finding cool spots. She chilled in the bushes and...

on a cool rock.

I miss the sun.

I miss Lupikona.

The Night that We Went to the Dog Park

Last night, I heard a clanking noise coming from the dog crates.

What is that? When I took a look in a dog crate...

I saw Lupita sleeping and kicking the inner wall in it.

After she had a good run around in the dog park, she ran in her dream at night.

Kona ran and...


Lupita ran and...


Lupikona ran and...


They had bright smiles after their good exercise.

Counting Sheep

Hey Lupita, it’s time to lie in bed counting sheep.

One sheep jumped over the fence…… ZZZ.

On My Foot

"Hey Lupita!"

"You're standing on my foot."

China Coast Half Marathon

Scott took part in the China Coast Half Marathon. I went to support him with Lupikona.

Lupikona and I took up a position just before the finish line.

"Lupita, look straight ahead. Scott will be here any second."

Scott sprinted past us before Lupikona knew it and...

crossed the finish line at a good pace!

"Lupita! Kona! I did it!" Scott the Finisher came down to see us.


"Look, Kona. I got a medal."

Well done, Scott.

We were in Starbucks in town.

Kona had a desperate look on her face and her body was shaking.

I think it’s because she has experienced a traumatic event in town last month that made her afraid of going to town. I took her to town in order to make her understand she doesn’t have to be frightened anymore.

A dog next to our table was smiling.

I want Kona to be able to smile in town soon.

The Bracelet

Sniff, sniff.

Sniff, sniff.

Lupikona was sniffing a hand-made bracelet made by one of LUPIKONA’s readers, Ms. R in Japan.

It is a Hawaiian Lauhala weaving using the dried leaves of a screw pine.

When Ms. R visited Hong Kong last month, she went to the beach I introduced on my blog previously to pick screw pine leaves. She used the screw pine leaves to weave the bracelet and sent it to me.

It has Lupita’s name and...

Kona’s name weaved in it.

Does it look good on Lupita’s arm?

Or on Kona’s head?

No, no. This is my bracelet. Let me reshoot.

Does it look good on me?

Does it still look good on me?

Ms.R, thank you so much for the very special present!
