My Furry Bestie
BODI is now half blind. Bodi, born May 19, 2017, was given to Ianne Meneses Rebulo as a birthday gift by her friend Jenn. Bodi lost his left eye when an adopted dog of Ianne, a Siberian husky named Nickey, was startled upon seeing someone—Bodi—following him on his way to the kitchen. His first instinct was to attack that someone. Ianne said Nickey did not immediately realize it was Bodi. Bodi remains a playful, sweet dog despite the incident, Iaane said. Bodi sometimes sleeps with Ianne and her husband in their room with another dog named Samsam. Bodi also loves being carried and swayed like a baby when they go to their room to sleep. Ianne said Bodi is spoiled. They would put Bodi’s food in a spoon and feed the dog while lying down when the dog doesn’t like the food. But when you kiss him. Bodi will lick your face continuously as if he is saying “thank you” and to tell her he loves very much. Months after losing an eye, Bodi’s platelet count went down due to erlichia. But Bodi is a fighter and he survived the illness after a month of medication. Ianne said they continue to monitor his health and they have his good eye (right) checked always. KIMMIE filled the void in the lives of Zay Ignote Roldan and her husband, Ericson Roldan. Zay had a rocky relationship with her husband before 2014. They were both distraught after Zay underwent surgery for myoma. Because of the surgery, Zay can no longer have a child. They joined Couples for Christ which helped them a lot. But they were still unhappy, she said.
“Zian, then six months old, came into our life. We adopted Zian, “ Zay said. For the second time, Zay said she became a “mom” and she is very happy.
