My chocolate dog...

It's been a rather stressful couple of weeks here in Vanuatu what with work going haywire and all. The major problem is too much work and not enough hands... Stressful and frustrating.

Benson has also been away for the last week and a half, on Epi Island for a family wedding which I could not attend due to work. To make matters worse, the first night that Benson was gone someone tried to break into my house where I was sleeping all on my lonesome. I didn't realise anything until the next morning when I went outside through the back door and turned to come back in and noticed a whole heap of scratches on the door near the handle where it looks like someone has tried to use a chisel to break in. The idiots didn't even try to do it properly though! Who tries to break in using a chisel on the door itself? You jemmie the door frame! Fools!

Anywho, I reported it to the owner of the house who tried to tell me that it was "wok blong puskat" (A cat did it), and I laughed in his face and asked him "what kind of cat? a tiger?" Honestly, I'm sure the man thought I was stupid or something. I told him it must have been one of the big two legged "puskats" that I've seen roaming around in the dark.
I made him put sliding bolts on the inside of both the doors and since then have had one of Ben's "sisters" sleeping in the house at night too. She's a whole other story though. It's all I can do to stop myself ripping her arms off and beating her about the head with them. Then again I suppose it comes down to the lesser of two evils... have the sister in law stay over? or potentially get raped and cut up into little pieces? Part of me wants to take my chances with the two legged puskats.

One of the only lights in my nasty fortnight has been this little green eyed guy.

This is Choco (short for chocolate dog), my puppy that Benson got me from his brothers house before he went away. He's cute and full of puppy unco-ordinatedness (and naughtyness too) and has made me smile, even on the worst days this week.

Don't you love him?

Cute puppy. When it grows up into a big dog, maybe you won't need the sister-in-law. Then there's always Mr. 9mm...

Glad to hear you are coping (just). It's a long time for your partner to be away... I hope your puppy grows up to be a good guard dog as it sounds as if you need one!

Mike, is the 9mm to deal with the intruders or the sister in law?

Awwwww...the puppy is adorable. Before you know it, he'll be big enough to eat any wayward Rude Kitties coming in your door uninvited...

Here via Michele's tonight :)

Your puppy is cute Yaeli.

I'm glad the landlord at least installed some locks for you. Are you feeling any safer now?

Michele says hi.

Hey Y!! AWw... Sounds like a very rough week. Glad you got those bolts on the door, though. Sounds kinda scary.

I actually laughed about the "ripping limbs off and beating her with them" -- Sounds like fun. Does this make me a bad person? LOL!

Hope your week next week is a WAY better one! Hugs...

What a cute puppy!
I had to hide the computer screen from my kids because they start pestering me to get a puppy when they see one anywhere.
Your life there sounds fascinating (I was reading a bunch of posts before commenting) though a bit hot!
Too bad about the sister in law though!
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Yes, a cute puppy! Your story reminds me of Steve McQueen on that train in "The Getaway" where he catches up to the thief and says, "The next time you pick a lock, don't leave any scratches" (and then proceeds to pummel the guy). Glad you are safe!

He is an adorable puppy, Yaeli. Almost as cute as you! I hope Benson gets back soon so you'll be safe again.

Hi!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can make real money on investments.
There is no initial capital needed.
You may begin earning with a sum that usually goes
for daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one company's work for several years,
and I'll be glad to let you know my secrets at my blog.

Please visit my pages and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I make 1000-2000 per daily now.
