Meimei was my dearly loved 14 year-old Siberian Husky in the Philippines.

She passed-away peacefully the other day. I can't complain at that as she was well-loved and well looked after by my two youngest daughters. She enjoyed life. She was a real surviver and she lived to a ripe old age.

My only regret is that due to these ridiculous and largely useless travel bans, I was not able to be with her even once during the last 15 months of her life. 'Just one more of the billions of Covid-19 fall-out stories from around the world...

I rescued Meimei from a pet shop when she was about 18 months old. She'd already spent about six months, as far as I can work out, in a filthy little cage in the shop window. From the moment I picked her up, she loved her Big Daddy like, well, (words fail me...) Well like only Meimei could! I was there for her when she was younger and I spent as much time as I could with her in her older years. I only wish I could have seen her in her last year of life. My kids told me that Meimei was waiting for me to come home.

Covid bull...

Well... Maybe she understands now.


          I am going to miss you Meimei. And I will always love you...

           Your Big Daddy forever!!


Here's Meimei in her younger days, not too long after I got her - having a good look over the wall at some goats in a field there!!

Just for the record, here is a copy of my youngest daughter's epitaph for Meimei:



Losing such an important part of the family is never easy. Nawala ka man sa mundo pero hindi sa puso namin. mahal na mahal ka namin big girl! makakasama mo na ulit ang partner mong si xiongdi. For sure masaya kana at hindi kana din nahihirapan. rest in peace mei-mei


And here was my reply. It's basically a Message to Meimei, wherever she is now! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

I love you Meimei! I'm going to really miss you when I eventually get back there... Well, you were certainly a survivor! When the vet said it would be two years before you could walk again, it took you about two weeks to start getting back on your feet! And, another time, when a different vet gave you a 50-50 chance of survival; you were trying to bite her because you wanted to go home six hours after your "life-threatening" operation!! You loved life. You lived it well and you had no intention of dying before the ripe old age of 14. As Luis Reyes said: "Makulit"! Makulit ka talaga and that's why I love you. Have fun with Shoubi, Xiongdi and Maru, now, in Doggy Heaven!
