Homer’s Little Helper

It’s that time of the year again. Christmas is around the corner and the time has come for Yours Truly’s yearly ritual of assembling the family Christmas Tree.

Of course, I am an old-hand at putting the tree up, as you can see from my exploits in Italy here and in Singapore here, here and here

…but the darn thing doesn’t get any easier as the years go by!

Where the heck do I start?

After more than an hour or so, I’d only managed to complete the first tier. As you can see, I was looking pretty forlorn.

By the time I had got to the damned lights, I was downright despondent!

Suddenly I had a brainwave! Why don’t I get some help from my little sister?

I took Savannah’s answer to mean “Yes Homer, I’d be delighted to help you.”

So, while Savannah got on with sorting out the lights, I ‘retrieved’ the Christmas Tree baubles.

Look at my, ahem, ‘shiny red balls’.

I took my time to sniff and lick my ‘shiny red balls’ before deciding to hang them up on the Christmas Tree. [The Missus: “WHAT?!?”]

As you can see, Savannah did a great job of helping me decorate the Christmas Tree. 

We also had a great time hanging out together.

Look at how she tried to roll over to give me a big hug.

I tried to teach her how to do it. (But we ended up going in different directions!)


We were both so proud of our first joint effort in putting up the Christmas Tree.

I look forward to many more years of having my darling little sister help me out!

Christmas Card 2014

As you may remember, I’ve always had my very own limited edition Christmas cards made every year. You can read more about all of my previous personalised Christmas cards at the following links:

- Christmas Card 2007

- Christmas Card 2008

- Christmas Card 2009

- Christmas Card 2010

- Christmas Card 2011

- Christmas Card 2012

- Christmas Card 2013

Although we have been very busy, this year will be no exception. The drill is the same – put on a Santa’s hat, smile, pose like a supermodel and simply put up with the very demanding photographer (the Missus).

And here’s the final outcome of my Christmas card. Cool eh?

‘Strike a pose’

And here’s the final outcome of my Christmas card. Cool eh?

If you would like to do a Christmas card exchange with Yours Truly, please e-mail your address details so that I can send one directly to you.

So, what are you waiting for? ;)

My Health Report

I’m so sorry that I haven’t kept everyone up-to-date on my health condition, as I promised I would do. (For those of you who were not aware, I have had a couple of scares with cancer issues and with a heart condition).

I am very happy to tell you all that, based upon the reviews from my cardiologist and my oncologist, my health report is excellent. However, I still have to go back for regular check-ups, just to make sure that everything is OK.

So, my friends, thank you very much for your good wishes and for your pawsitive vibes. It’s at times like these, that you appreciate the power of internet. To receive such support from, effectively, complete strangers, has been such an uplifting experience.

With much love,

A Sad Loss

Hi folks,

Some sad news from Homer’s household.

Having battled cancer for almost 2 years, the Missus’ mother (my grandmother in Singapore) has, unfortunately, succumbed to the disease.

She passed away, peacefully, on 25 September 2014.

I am doing all I can to console the Missus.

Heart Concerns

Last night, my humans had to rush me to the hospital. Apparently I wasn’t feeling too well. I couldn’t stand up properly and I was feeling lethargic. At the hospital, the vets ran the necessary tests and found that my heart rate was very low.

I will be hospitalised for two nights. This coming Friday, the Missus and I will head to Bangkok to seek consultation with a cardiologist. I really hope they will be able to find out the actual cause of my erratic heartbeat so that we can proceed with proper treatment.

Wish me luck and I’ll keep you posted.

Woof everyone! I have something to tell you all.

I would like to announce the arrival of my beautiful little baby sister, Savannah Rosemary Beadling.

Anna (for short) was born on 18 August 2014.

We are all doing very well. Here's a picture of my little darling sister.

"Hi! My name is Savannah!"

I am now officially a big brother! Woo hoo!

Something is 'Brewing'

As you know, a couple of significant events have taken place in my life over the past few months. First of all, there was my move from Singapore to Thailand and some of the adventures in my new home. Secondly, I have had some major health issues to deal with.

But there has been one other development which I haven’t mentioned yet. Something strange has been going on.

First of all, some new furniture has been arriving.

Like this…

…and this.

Then, I have noticed some new clothes hanging around…

Surely they don’t expect this to fit me???

Finally, there have been a lot of interesting toys showing up, but they don’t appear to be for me!

Who are these for, if not for me?

Well, if I can’t have those toys, nobody is going to have mine. Hmmph!

My ‘Precious’…

But the thing I’ve noticed most, is that the Missus seems to be ‘changing’.

Don’t tell her, but the Missus appears to be putting on a bit of weight.

What could this all mean…?
