Randy is in love. As in crazily in love. He normally sleeps early and almost nothing can rouse him from his sleep. But the past weeks, isang tunog lang ng Ipad n’ya kahit madaling araw, bangon agad to check his Facebook. And for several days he couldn’t concentrate on his work. So talagang na-in love siya.
To a young bitch!
Aaand, sa sobrang pagkahumaling niya sa young bitch na ‘yun, ibinahay na niya. Yes, this young bitch is living under the same roof as we do. Now, I’d like you to see the bitch that Randy is so crazy about, at i-judge natin.
The bitch in the flesh
Guys, meet Randy’s bitch, Khaleesi:
What a bitch, right?!? And as if it wasn’t enough that this young bitch made Randy fall in love with her…
She made Raviv fall in love with her too!!!
So essentially, this bitch captured the hearts of the two important men in my life!
And take a look at how maharot this bitch is:
The search is over
In fairness, Khaleesi is indeed a “handsome” bitch, and I fully support her invasion of our home. See, for the longest time, Randy has been enamored with dobermanns. I get why he likes dobermanns (very smart and elegant-looking), but dobes have never caught my fancy. I prefer dogs with flat faces. And since clingy Randy wants me to share his passion, he thought that the bull mastiff is a good compromise: it has a flat face and also looks macho. We had a handsome, adorable bull mastiff before but lost it to a mosquito bite. 🙁 Randy bought another one—it too was handsome, but it was too lethargic for Randy’s taste. He had it replaced with two puppies, but when he realized it was not Philippine champion material, he sold it and stopped thinking of bull mastiffs temporarily.
When we went to Thailand and visited Som Nuek’s Ratchburi Kennel, his love for the gentle giants surged to new heights. He can’t stop talking about bull mastiffs! He contemplated buying a Ratchburi bull mastiff but they were all too expensive. So when we returned to the Philippines he searched for and contacted reputable Russian and American bull mastiff breeders. After a week or so of research and contemplation, he made his decision: he was going to import a young bitch from Galina Dittman, a Russian breeder who lives in the US.
Honestly, we both want a male bull mastiff precisely because what we love about bull mastiffs is their massiveness and the macho-ness. Females (bitches) are not as as massive as males. But since we were far from other dog enthusiasts when it comes to lakas ng loob sa paggastos sa pag-import ng aso, Randy opted to get a female so that he could have a pampalubag-loob in case she does not become a Philippine Champion: at least we can breed her and sell her puppies.
But we have high hopes for her, because she’s got good lineage. 🙂
Randy’s “Moon of My Life”
Before Khaleesi was shipped to us, Randy was asked by Galina what he would want to name the bitch. Randy asked me. I first thought of the name Yolanda—it was “uso” and was a strong name—perfect for a sturdy-looking bitch. But Randy thought it was too long, and “Yolly” won’t be a good nickname. And then I thought of Khaleesi. If you’re a fan of “Game of Thrones”, you need not read further. I’m sure you all know who Khaleesi is.

According to http://gameofthrones.wikia.com,
Khaleesi is a Dothraki title referring to the wife of the khal. A khaleesi‘s status varies greatly from khalasar khalasarto. She could be very influential, riding next to the khal, or she could be worth practically less than the khal‘s horse, since the khal‘s bloodriders would sometimes sleep with the khaleesi, but they would never share the khal‘s horse.
According to the TV series official pronunciation guide developed for the cast and crew, “Khaleesi” is pronounced “Khal-EE-see”.
Daenerys Targaryen, a.ka. Khaleesi of the Dothraki Tribe is my (and a lot of other women’s and especially men’s) favorite character in Game of Thrones. And it’s not difficult to see why: she has ephemeral beauty and oozes with sex appeal; she is also courageous yet kind, and is independent yet is a good leader.
She is so great that her powerful husband, Khal Drogo (who’s just as sexy!), calls her “Moon of My Life”.
If only I don’t fear that many other Game of Thrones fans have named/will name their daughters Khaleesi, I’d have definitely reserved it as the name of my future daughter who I pray will have her eponym’s good characteristics.
Anyway, let’s go back to Khaleesi the bitch. When I mentioned “Khaleesi” to Randy, it was like there was a loud “DING!!!” on the background…it was definitely a “Eureka!” moment. And so Khaleesi was it. 🙂
True to her name, Khaleesi is acting every inch like her eponym: prinsesang–prinsesa ang peg ng bruha!
See?!? At eto pa…
Randy: Sweetheart, ipa–aircon na kaya natin ang dining at living rooms natin?
Me: Good! Matagal ko na ngang sina-suggest ‘yun di ba? Para man lang ‘pag jampacked tayo ‘pag may party, malamig. Pawis na pawis kasi tayo lagi.
Randy: Sige pa-aircon na nga natin.
Me: Ba’t nagbago ang isip mo?
Randy, grinning sheepishly: Hulaan mo.
Me, after thinking hard: Si Khaleesi?!?
Randy: Oo. Kasi kawawa naman siya…sanay siya sa snow. Nakakahiya naman sa kanya ang init dito sa atin. Plano ko nga ‘yung isang bodega ie-empty ko tapos ipapa-aircon para doon ang kwarto niya. Pero na-guilty ako bigla kasi nga yung playroom/bedroom ni Raviv hindi natin ipina-aircon.
Ay dapat lang na ma-guilty ka nga!
But still, it’s all good. Sabi nga ng friend ni Randy from his dog show world, “Pasalamat ka dapat ganyang mga “bitch” ang kinalolokohan namin at hindi ‘yung mga mas malalang bitch.”
And totoo naman. At least, Khaleesi the bitch will help keep our family safe. E ‘yung kulasisi bitch, wawasak pa ng pamilya. 🙂
