when bronco first came, fresh from the petfarm (smelling of the petfarm) he resided primarily in the prefect’s bathroom (because she had a sliding glass door at the shower area).
but he has since moved into my room (into my bed) since a week or so after he came. he’s a funny puppy he is, affectionate–as long as he’s the one giving affection. he doesn’t quite so like to receive the snuggles and the head-rubs or the pats on the back, but he’d lick your face and sleep in the nook of your arm. he used to sit in the heart of my two palms put together, but he has grown to the size of my forearm.
his coat is no longer fluffy puppy fur, in fact the prefect and i cut off his puppy down (becaue he got it all tangled) to reveal his nice new silver coat of teenage-hood. yorkshire terriers are funny that way, they come out black and brown. then the color mutes down to silver and gold. then it darkens again to a blue-steel and dark gold.
bronco is a strange fellow, he doesn’t enjoy meal times and often is seen begrudgingly chewing on puppy grub. he loves mango and climbs all over her like a jungle gym. he eats durians like a fiend, and is still not toilet broken. he has a curious affinity with stuffed girraffes and would do anything for a sweet. (yes, the hard candy type)
when he was younger (and alot of dogs do this) he used to sniff and occasionally taste his own poop out of curiousity. its called Coprophagia adn if you google “dogs eat poop” on google you’d realise, damn many dogs eat poop! anyway, it was a short puppy fascination that he has grown out of. unfortunately for him. mum saw him do it one day and has since taken to calling him “jia sai gao” (translated: eat poop dog) and the rest of the family (sans me and the prefect) unfortunately caught on to the name. he doesn’t do it anymore, but behold the power of a nickname. hopefully it doesn’t give power of a suggestion.
anyway, bronco’s hair is taking forever to grow out. (my fault, i gave him a very close cut), but i can’t wait till it does.
the pea is late coming over– he’s sending dad to the airport tomorrow because i have an early morning presentation. so till then (and even after then) its bronco and me, off to beddy byes.
