Dumbo Ng ~ 16 Feb 1999 - 20 Sep 2009
This is Dumbo, Mummy's ex-colleague's Golden Retriever. He was the dog that made Mummy fall in love with the Golden Retriever breed. After hearing funny stories about Dumbo and seeing his lovely face, Mummy has decided that the Golden Retriever is her favourite type of dog and she fantasizes about owning her own Golden Retriever one day. She was never a big fan of dogs before knowing Dumbo.
Dumbo had his many quirks. He loved listening to classical music and will only fall asleep when his owner tuned in to Symphony 92.4FM, our local classical music radio station. He slept next to the radio every night with the classical music playing on as his nightly companion.
He was a sweet-natured dog too. He was often bullied by his smaller fur brother, another breed which Mummy can't recall even though he is bigger in size. He always got his ears tugged by his brother and he didn't mind at all. He was named Dumbo cos he was like a silly dog with big floppy ears (when he was pup) that was so easygoing, and got bullied so easily.
Dumbo has just passed away. Mummy hasn't got the details but apparently, the poor dog was in the Intensive Care Unit before he passed away. We hope he wasn't in much pain. Run free at the Rainbow Bridge, Dumbo! You will always be loved and remembered!
