The picnic - by Rusty

When I overheard mummy saying that she might bring me to the picnic, I prayed for good weather before I went to bed at night. That must have worked because the weather was perfect all day.

Our journey began at 3.30pm. From the backseat of the car, I saw the world passing by under the clear blue skies.

So this must be the Singapore Flyer -the world's largest observation wheel. Maybe if I ask nicely, they will let me go in one of those glass capsules. I'll be the first dog on board the Flyer!

From the highway, I could see the Marina Bay Sands Resort. It was so awe inspiring!

I thought I saw a Tiger? But isn't a tiger supposed to be 4-legged like me? Maybe they have bottled it. I would prefer the meat, not the juice. Gimme a real Tiger!

Then I got bored. Are we there yet?

We took the exit after Vivocity.

At long last, we arrived at Labrador Park.

How I love the smell of clean, fresh air!

There was a cake to celebrate Patricia's belated birthday.

They had a vegetarian picnic. I can't believe nobody brought me anything to eat!

While waiting for the rest to arrive, Hakim kept himself busy.

Then Sandrine and Patricia started doing yoga. I think Sandrine* had a ball hiding under her shirt.

There were helicopters rehearsing for the National Day Parade. We could hear the fireworks in the distance.

I went on many walks. All I did was look really bored and miserable. Mummy always falls for my trick.

Everyone kept feeding me cakes, biscuits and beans when all I wanted was meat!

Driven by hunger, I went in search of something to eat.

I was thrown out of the mat, just like that!

Blur Ting said...

Fry - You don't have to worry about him. While I was walking him, he insisted on going to this couple sitting at the bench nearby.

The couple started cuddling him and I purposely mentioned that he must be attracted to the food they had with them. *wink*

They said, "Can we give him some chicken?", pointing to the chunk of roast chicken they had.

Before I could finish answering, the chicken was already between Rusty's jaws.

He charmed the couple into giving him dinner!
