New Family Member

Like Jay and Jaffe, I have a new family member.
No, it is not a little puppy and neither is it a guinea pig. It does not have 4 legs

Here it is, let me introduce my (forever wet) brother, DIVING (Everyone at home think my brother should be call DIVING because I am SCUBA)


fighthing fish 006


Mom said we both have loads in common
1) we are fighters (hehe DIVING is a fighting fish and I am supposedly born to fight)
2) we live in our own little world
3) we are slow in our movement (to me that is conserving our energy).


Well !! Well !! I thought that was it. DIVING is to stay in his little tank. BUT NO – he has decided to teach me a thing or two about the water (aka the sea).

On his 3rd day with us, he decided to teach me how to jump and fly in the water.


Flying fish



I did not do very well with the jumping and the flying and always come up looking disgruntled
Swimming


This weekend, it was walking on water

Surf & balance

Not bad – I think I can do that quite well.

Boy let me tell you, was I tired at the end of each exercise.

Don’t fool with DIVING.

Oh now I see, that's why your ears stand up - so you can fly!

Hey, congratulations on having a new family member! Diving looks cute. I'm sure the two of you will have fun!

Hey Scuba, are you going to learn the underwater diving skills from Diving?

Fu Fu said...

Scuba, your brother DIVING looks cool. Did you know that if you let DIVING look into a mirror, he'll flare and open his fins. ;)

Hehehehe.... Scuba, do you like Sashimi by any chance??

I can't believe you can actually swim!!! You know my bull terrier friend Liam that I was telling you about, he SINKS everytime we carry him into the water. Seriously!

Love nibbles,

Hi Buster - Yes yes like bats. Thank goodness for those ears.

Thanks Jay. Well we haven't clash (I must admit, he look better than me even has nicer color).

Dear Bond - can you believe it, my mom is a scuba diving instructor so I guess I don't have a choice.

Fufu - I didn't know that. I will try showing him his 'twin'

Missy Sunshade, I love sashimi. I was going to add something in the post like "be careful DIVING, if you don't treat me well, I will have Ginger and Pepper go after you coz they love sashimi" and guess what, mom was beside me and I can't post. Glad you brought it up.

On the subject of swimming, my mom use to say bullies can't swim (they sink). hehe the theory is right than. But honestly, I can swim..... but I paddle and kick like crazy. Maybe you can tell Liam

Lots of love, Scuba

Hiya Scuba,
You are just so adorable, our Mama just wants to hug you, tee hee! We like DIVING. He is a beauty. Our Mama has lots of African Cichlid fish and fancy goldfish indoors & big huge koi outdoors. We're glad we found your blog, very nice indeed. We'll be adding a link on our page so we can visit you everyday.
Wirey Hugs!

Hiya back to the 2 WRTs and hugs back to your mama too.

Thanks for visiting my blog and you both are linked to mine.

I see you guard your mama's fishes. Think I better learn the art of guarding from you guys (just in case my siblings the 2 cats develop a taste for sashimi)

Love, Scuba

Scuba the Muscle Boy said...

Fufu. You are so right.

Diving met his 'twin' throught a mirror and boy did he puff up.

Must admit, Diving looked so gorgeous when he is ready for a fight.

Hey Scuba!
Wow I'm real glad I found another bully out there.. us tough faces gotta stick together!
Also, I'm amazed that you can swim.. and jealous too.. I tried to swim once but I just sank and someone had to pull me out of the water! You'll have to teach me sometime :)

Cheerio!
Dudley

Hi Scuba, Congrats on your new "brother" He looks awesome. Blue is MaMa's fav color & she might just "fishnap" him one day.

MaMa told me a story about a couple of beautiful fighting fish in our house one time, but she doesn't allow me to post about their fate. (just incase your kitty siblings get ideas from mine)

Cyrus The Great said...

Wow! that would be nice to have summer all year around! But, since I have all the wrinkles and short face (bracycephallic) I cant do real real hot weather just like cold- ugh- no wonder Im pamperded!!!
awesome to see another bully!!

Toby said...

Hey Scuba!~ Congrats on your new "little" brother. Maybe one of these days, you guys can swim together!~

Onion said...

Look at you, like a big fish yourself! Between us you and I will convert the world to bull terrierdom!

Scuba the Muscle Boy said...

Dudley - yes we must stick together through thick and thin. I have one of those flotation device but hardly wear it. You might want to get one too.

Jaffe - Thank you. The only problem is, I can't run around with Diving. All he talk about is water sports and nothing else. Fishnap my Diving - sure but remember to bring your own water. I want the mini fish tank. I will ask your mama about the fate of her fishes (away from my siblings' ears)

Cyrus - so we have to scrap our exchange program. SAD. Well I know Frankie (an English Bulldog) owned by a Japanese family and he is doing good in this hot weather.

Toby - under 1 week, Diving has taught me so much. I think it is not a good idea to swim with him. He will probably take off without me and I don't want to leave home

Onion - My mom said maybe not bull terrierdom but Bullish Terrordom. She said Onion will do ok since she is a celebrity but me, I am just another terror.

Hi Scuba,
I think Sashimi sounds much better than Diving.. I'm hungry just thinking about it.
By the way, my ma bought you some treats at the dog show last weekend but the careless woman left it at my place instead of taking it with her. I will try my best to save them for you.. promise..

Scuba the Muscle Boy said...

Hi Huskee Keebo
I thought sashimi was a good name too but when I told mom, she turn to me (with annoyance) and scolded me and said what if I name you Hotdog or Porky Bacon. Would you like that......ohhhhhhhhh no. We already had hot spices - Ginger and Pepper so to complete my name, I picked Diving.

Your mom (aka my Singapore Godma) is ever so thoughtful. Thank you for saving them for me.

Love, Scuba

Hey Scuba!

My Mum just got excited because she saw that you're from Singapore and she has some aunties and uncles over there (which means I have great-aunties and great-uncles over there too!!). I guess you keep cool by going swimming so often eh?? Mum tells me it's super hot.. now, I like lying in the sun on a warm summer day as much as the next dog.. but I think I'll leave the tropical weather to you, Scuba!

Cheerio,
Dudley

Aaaalllo Scuba!

I love your blog and you're simply hilarious!! Me and my mummy were sitting in front of the monitor just laughing away at your funny antics!

I love swimming too but i know nuts about diving....maybe Diving can give me a tip or two...*smacks lips*....oops sorry, couldn't resist doing that. Did i mention my favourite food is fish?!

Seeya around. Gonna link your blog from mine! :)

Scuba the Muscle Boy said...

Dear Dudley. If your mom need me to pass any messages to your great aunties and great uncles, please let me know. Ohhhh do they understand doggies' language (no worries mum will translate). Your mum is super right. It is super hot in Singapore (365 days a year)

Hi Chester
Thanks for visiting my blog. You are now link to my blog under Chester the Herder. Well many people says bull terriers are clowns, so hilarious is a good adjective. Please don't ask Diving to give you a tip. He will drive you crazy teaching you how to swim. I love to eat fish too but Diving is OUT OF BOUND. Mum has been educating me on brotherly love

Love, Scuba
