Exciting days ahead

Today, when Mummy returned from the doctor's clinic, she told me that the baby in her tummy will be out tomorrow! This means there will be a new member in our family, I will have one more person to play with, Mummy will be able to bring me out for walks again and there will be lots of people coming to our house for a celebration....which means...more food for me!

I know Mummy is very scared and excited...Daddy is a bundle of nerves too! Tomorrow morning, they are going to bring me to Granddad's house first before proceeding to the hospital. I hope they don't forget to pack my favourite "fast food" - NuTripe canned food. They always feed me this good stuff whenever they are too busy to cook for me. I think I have have to stay at Granddad's house for a couple of days while Mummy stays at the hospital. I guess it's ok since I have the garden to myself. I can run around, drag all of Coco's toys outside to play with and dig up some mud when no one is watching! BOL!

Mummy knows she will not have the time to update my blog after we better share with you some recent pictures we took together, with the baby still in Mummy's tummy.

We'll be back with more exciting news and updates!

Charity Photoshoot for Charmaine

This is waaaaayyyyy loooooooooong OVERDUE! But still it's not too late to show you my pictures taken at the Charity Photoshoot. We did our bit to help chip in Charmaine's cancer fighting funds and we wish the little warrior a speedy recovery.

The photoshoot was done at The Doggy Salon and I was terrified when my parents carried me to a table and told me to sit there. I was so uncomfortable with the height and with so many people fussing over me. I cowered and tried to leap off the table but all the humans were telling me to stay, or sit or down. My parents tried to soothe and relax me by talking to me and smiling at me. Not that helped at all. I was so relieved when the flashing camera lights were off and Daddy carried me off the dreaded table. Phew! Did I look like I gonna pee in my pants, I mean fur? I did my best to put on a brave and handsome look. It aint easy being a model after all.

It's October already...

Time flies, it's October already! Mummy says by the end of the month, there will be a new addition to the family. And in just 2 months' time, it will be the beautiful season of Christmas again...there's so many things to look forward to!

Mummy has been really lazy and hasn't updated my blog much...but that doesn't mean she has stopped visiting my doggie friends' blogs and reading about what they are up to!

Here are the latest batch of my pictures, taken at Yunnan Garden. I just love to run freely and frolick in the grass!

Mummy and her 40" waist!

I don't know what Mummy has been eating but her waistline has been expanding so much I now look like a svelte supermodel next to her even though I now weigh a hefty 21.5kg!

Goodbye Dumbo

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!

The Escape Artist knows his way home

Okay...this is going to get repetitive and boring but I DID IT AGAIN! BOL! I ran away from home again, what else is new.

On Saturday, Mummy and Daddy left me at Granddad's house while they went for their weekly ante-natal class. I was so sad they couldn't bring me along. I'm sure I could pick up some baby-caring tips and do my duties well as a big brother to the baby! Anyway, I was hanging out in the garden when Granddad came home. In her haste to open the front gate for Granddad, Grandmum just leashed me quickly so that I wouldn't rush to the car porch and Granddad can park his car in the house safely. But because I wasn't leashed properly, I managed to wriggle out of the leash and I immediately ran out of the gate! The intention was to go look for my pawrents!

My poor Grandmum was freaking out and followed me out of the house. Granddad was worried too and even drove around the vicinity to look for me. The more I see Grandmum following me, the faster I ran. Frankly, I have no idea where I was going and decided to explore the neighbourhood for a bit. I soon came to an area whom I think my friend Romeo and his Mummy stays in, because I remembered I saw them here when my pawrents and I were in the car and we drove passed them. I was trying to locate Romeo's house so that I can pay him a surprise visit! I sniffed around, hoping to detect Romeo's scent but no luck at all. It was getting boring after a while and I couldn't see Grandmum or Granddad anymore (by then they have already given up looking for me and returned home). The afternoon heat was getting to me and there were no mud puddles for me to cool myself in. BORING! Where are the big dogs to play with when you need them?

I decided to just head back home so that I can chill in the house and wait for my pawrents to return. It wasn't too difficult to find my way back cos I just needed to sniff around and follow my pee-mails which will lead me to my destination. Boy, you should see my Granddad's face when he saw me standing outside the gate! He couldn't believe that I have returned! BOL! He went straight into the house to grab my favourite sliced barberqued pork and used that to lure me into the house. Of course I can never resist this special treat and I went straight for the yummy meat the moment the gate was opened for me. BOL!

I wish I can show you just how far I ran away but I couldn't post a picture of the map. Anyway, Romeo, if you are reading this, you would be able to tell. From my grandpawrents' place in Namly Garden to Jalan Lim Tai See / Lim Tai See walk area and back! Geez, is that far? I didn't feel it's that far but my grandpawrents reckoned it was!

A close shave...with death!

Towards the end of last week, I caused my pawrents quite a bit of a heart attack! I don't really wanna blog about this but my Mummy insists I let the whole world know what I did so that other doggies will not learn from me and that their pawrents can also try to prevent such things from happening to their furkids, should it happen one day *touch wood!*.

On Friday evening, my pawrents were getting ready to go to Grandpa's house for dinner and as usual, they had to coax me to get into the car boot. The car boot is not exactly my favourite place in the world and as usual, I tried to wriggle my way out of it. I backed away while Daddy pulled the leash (and me) towards him. Just then, the leash which was tied round my neck ride up my head and with a couple of pulling and wriggling actions, the leash came loose and I was free!

I ran around the estate in full speed, missing cars that came in and out of the car park by seconds. Daddy told Mummy to stay put while he chased after me. Mummy was freaking out already but she tried her best to remain calm and stayed at the car, waiting for our return.

I ran and ran, and seeing Daddy hot on my heels, I ran even faster and soon, I reached the edge of a busy road. Cars and big trucks were zooming by, it was really exciting! I had to stop for a while as I suddenly had to urge to poop. I was happily doing my business at the side of the road when Daddy came up to me and quickly put the leash around me. I struggled again and managed to break free. Poor Daddy was not as agile as me and he fell and suffered some scratches on his fingers and palms. Luckily he missed my pile of freshly-pooped poo!

I dashed across the busy road and even turned back to look at Daddy. The vehicles must be really excited to see me too cos they were making lots of noise with their horns. Somehow, I managed to cross two busy roads and reached the other side of the neighbourhood. Some vehicles were close enough to sniff my butt but they all braked in time to avoid me. I wonder why.

Anyway, I arrived at one of my favourite part of the neighbourhood because there are many doggies living in the big houses here and I have plenty of peemail to check out. While replying to one of the peemail, Daddy suddenly sneaked up on me and grabbed my tail. Well, Daddy was pretty mad at me for making him run all the way here at this point, and for ignoring his commands to COME. He grabbed me real tightly and before I know it, I was leashed again. Oh well, end of my adventure for now.

My pawrents were really mad at me for running away (again) and ignored me the whole time we were at Grandpa's place. I gave them a pathetic and innocent look, but they just glared at me. So I kept my distance, especially from Daddy who were staring daggers at me when I peeped at him.

Erm, there's a second part to my "horror" story. After dinner at Grandpa's house, we were getting ready to go home when again I refused to get up into the car. Daddy bent over to carry me but I backed away and this time, my tail missed the rolling tyres of an oncoming car by millimetres! Actually, come to think of it, some strands of fur from my fluffy tail were CRUSHED by the tyres! But it's ok cos I have lots of fur to spare!

That's not the end of my story. On Saturday, we went to Granddad's house (FYI, Grandpa is Mummy's father and Granddad is Daddy's father) and before the car boot was opened, I saw a golden retriever taking a walk at the side of the road. I was really excited to see him and leaped off the car the moment the door was opened, forgetting to listen to my pawrents' command (they have to say OK before I can get off the car). In my eagerness to go and say hi to the golden retriever, I lept off the car too quickly and somehow sprained my front paw when I landed on the road. It hurts very much and I whined real loudly and for a long time too. The lady walking the golden was taken aback by my loud cries and quickly walk away. My painful paw didn't allow me to rush over to the golden. In fact, I sat down immediately and cry out in pain. My pawrents groaned again and gave me a huge lecture. Thank god, the pain went away soon enough and I stopped limping by the end of the night.

I'm Pawesome!

Honey, has tagged me to list seven reasons why I am PAWESOME! Ohhh....there are more than seven reasons that I can think of, but I shall be humble and abide by the rule of the game. BOL!

Reason 1: I am pawesome because I sit on command (especially when there are treats and walks involved).

Reason 2: I let my pawrents towel me dry without much fuss even though I absolutely hate it.

Reason 3: I only pee and poo outside the house cos I know how much my Mummy hates to clean up after me at home.

Reason 4: I greet and bow to my pawrents whenever they come home!

Reason 5: I wait patiently for my food.

Reason 6: I am the house's official door bell. I can smell the salesman and the postman the moment they stepped out of the lift and heading for my house! I bark to announce their arrival before they can even knock on the door.

Reason 7: Last but not least, I am pawesome because I am just so lovable!

Now I'm going to tag seven of my pawesome friends to give us seven reasons why they are pawesome!

1. Huskee
2. Hershey
3. Romeo
4. Dino
5. Paco
6. Milo
7. Brownie

True Colour Thursday - Pale Pink

Another week has zoomed by and it's True Colour Thursday again! Colour for the week is Pale Pink and check out Mummy's towel cap on my head. Mummy's doing it again - having a good laugh at my expense. I'm only doing this cos there was my favourite treat hanging on the tip of Mummy's fingers.

True Colour Thursday - Chowcolate Brown

It's True Colour Thursday again and the colour for the week is Chowcolate Brown! What do you all think about the rich shade of Chowcolate in the background? It reminds me so much of the Cadbury milk chocolate that Mummy is munching on!

Meeting Nikki

One of Mummy's old friend from secondary school invited us to her new house in Queenstown. This is the hostess, Aunt Rachel. She loved it when I offered her my paws.

Aunt Rachel offered me a treat ball because I was such a charmer.

That's Nikki. Aunt Rachel's 8-year-old Yorkshire Chihuahua. She wasn't too pleased to see me playing with her treat ball...oops!

Nikki wasn't too friendly and she kept a close watch on me. I was constantly on my toes too, I mean I can't exactly relax and be myself when I'm under scrutiny.

I tried to be friendly...

And gave my widest smile to Nikki...

What say you we stop watching and following each other, Nikki? Let's be friends instead!

Nikki wasn't too keen on the idea. See, even when we took a picture together, she wanna sit far away from me.

Oh Mummy I give up! Maybe I should pose with the humans instead.

So this is me and Aunt Rachel.

And of course a group picture with the ladies!

Nikki was starting to get tired from watching me all afternoon. Frankly, so was I.

So Aunt Rachel gave us some felt so good! And if Aunt Rachel starts to pet me, she better does the same to Nikki cos that jealous dog barked at me and bit me when Aunt Rachel showered her attention on me initially.

That's Uncle AT, Aunt Rachel's hubby. He thinks I look like an adorable lion! BOL! After meeting me, he is convinced that owning a big dog is much more fun! BOL!

Before leaving the house, I tried to be friendly to Nikki once more but that silly girl ran away and hid in a corner.

Hmmm...I can't reach and sniff at Nikki and say my goodbye. But I think she rather have it this way. Adios, Nikki. And bye Aunt Rachel and Uncle AT. Thanks for having us over...your courtyard is great and sorry about mistakening your new carpet as the grass and peeing on it.

Please sign my guestbook!
