Taiwan Earthquake

Oh no, the Taiwan earthquake has knocked off the internet access. I am unable to read my doggie friends blogs for days. Today finally I am able to go online again. Wish everyone happy new year 2007! Let us have peace to the world!

Flooding

It has been raining continuously for the past 24 hours! The Bishan Park that I always go to play is now flooded. I have not been going out for my walkie walkie due to the rain. I heard in USA there are snow storms somewhere! How scary! I may be getting flu too, as I have been sneezing.

Rain Storm

Last night we have a rain storm. Mummy's plants were all blown to the ground! Huge noises. I was very scared! I ran around all over the house, frantically! Buttercup went out to pick up the mess and came back into the house all drenched!

Alone

Mummy is trying to train me to be alone in the house. You see, I am rarely left alone. I always have Cookie to play with since I was young. So I hate to be alone. Nowadays, Mummy first brings me to walkie walkie in the morning. Then Mummy will bring Cookie out to walkie walkie, leaving me alone at home. But I hate it. I bark and whine until Mummy and Cookie come home!

Moving furniture around

Mummy has been trying out new furniture layout in the house. This changing of furniture is giving me anxiety. So after Mummy changed the house furniture configuration, I started to bite the furniture and messed up the house again!

Singapore Taxis and dogs

Mummy has sold away the van. Now we have to take taxi when we go to the beach at sentosa. This weekend, we have to wait for a long long time, and several empty taxis drove passed us and refused to take us. Oh, it is now very inconvenient for us to go far far away places. Singapore taxi drivers are also not very friendly to dogs! Mummy always carry us in doggy bags when we ride taxi.

Quarantine in Perth

My friends Buttons and Ninja are now in Perth, Australia. They have to be in quarantine for a month. They told me that everyday they get to run in a large field for one hour. Their daddy comes visit them everyday during the weekday. During weekend there is no visitation. Buttons and Ninja, you please take care in Perth! Adios, my friends....

Hazey index at 150!

Oh my it was so hot outside over the weekend! I was so thirsty. Mummy walked me outside for just a little while. The sky was so hazey. The haze index has shot pass 150, very unhealthy to go outdoor!

Monday, October 02, 2006

Hazey weather...

This week the haze is pretty bad. The sky looks very hazy. The haze index is between 60 to 100 (unhealthy level). The Indonesia forest is burning again, and the wind blows the smoke to Singapore. Mummy decided not to bring us to the beach. It is not healthy to go outdoor too much at this kind of hazey weather.

Saigon...Vietnam

Mummy and Buttercup travelled to Saigon, Vietnam last weekend. Cookie and me went to stay over with our doggie friends Ninja and Buttons. Mummy kept telling me that the Vietnam war was horrible. I am glad we are safe in Singapore! God bless Singapore. Amen.

Sand gets into my eyes

After the beach, my left eyes were filled with sand. I kept it closed the whole time and tearing. Mummy tried to wash it with water. My eye was very red! Eyebright tea leaves were boiled and used to clean my eyes. (Eyebright is an attractive weed that grows in fields and meadow areas of most temperate climate regions of the world.) I was tearing whole night. But this morning when I woke up, the sand was gone. And I can open my eye again!

Raining and flooding...

We were at sentosa again on Sunday. It was raining so heavily. After my mummy parked the van at Dolphin Lagoon, we stayed in the van for a while to wait out on the rain. Mummy opened the van and noticed that the water was very high. The water almost covered the wheels. Buttercup screamed:" Let's get out of here! It's flooding!". Mummy straight away turn on the engine, broom broom, and we were out of there! Buttercup has saved us all from the flood! Mummy went to park at the Beach Carpark, which was dry. After a while the rain stopped and we have a great day at the beach!

How I got my name...

Copper wanted everyone to tell how they got their names.

My Mummy is a Couch Potato and wanted us to become celebrities one day!!!!
Billie Jean King is a feminist and great Tennis champion. Cookie is short for Cookie Monster (that's what she's known as in the dog run we used to go and have stopped going because of a dog fight incident) which comes from none other than the character from Sesame Street.

Beach again!

Me and my catty!
After a rolling in the sand!
C'mon, throw me the catty! Wow wow....
I love the beach, he he he...

Powerpuff Girl Buttercup's Version...

It's Sunday and Beach Day again for us. While we were playing at the beach, suddenly I heard this deafening sharp horrifying scream. It was Wonder Woman running in the speed of light to save Precious from this evil 4-legged reptile-like monster which was twice my size and heading towards Precious, my friend. Precious was really lucky this time. Had it not been Wonder Woman, she might have ended up as a nice Sunday brunch.
What an eventful Sunday.....

The attack of monitor lizard !!!

We were at sentosa palawan beach yesterday when the tornado "striked" (tornado was sighted)! There was a heavy rain. The sea water was very high. After the rain stopped, we went for a swim. Suddenly, Precious spotted a monitor lizard and ran for it. Wonder woman screamed her lungs out to get Precious to come back to her! I was busy with my fetching catty game, I didn't even notice there was a monitor lizard. (The lizard was about 1.2 meters long). Mummy carried me out of water when the lizard started to swim towards us. What an adventurous Sunday!

Rearranging furniture in my home...

The dining table is gone from the living room, it is replaced by a foldable table. The chairs are gone to the kitchen. Now we have a bigger space to run and play fetch ball in the living room! As I am now almost three and a half years old, I am more calm and destroy the furniture less. Mummy has removed the barrier to the room joining the living room. Now we have a big space to play! I am so happy!

Coconut at the beach...

Buttercup picked up a coconut at the beach. She threw it against the rocks. It broke up, coconut juice was splashing out. Buttercup gave me the coconut with some juice to drink. It tasted funny, like an old coconut, and rancid! Mummy was worried that the coconut might be spoiled, and full of bacteria. But my stomach was very strong. After drinking the rancid juice, my stomach was doing fine. I didn't have any diarrhea.

Treats hidden in tied hanky...

Mummy likes to hid treats in a tied hanky every morning before she goes to work. I am very good at untying the hanky to get to the treats!

My new toys !!

I love my new toy! It has knots which I like to untie them, and has a chewy middle part. I also like to play fetch with my new toy!
Cookie's new toy has four very tough balls. One of the ball makes squeeky sound. Cookie is such an aggressive chewer, she kills the squeeky ball!We love our new toys. Every month Mummy will get us new toys!
Cookie is so tired after chewing at the balls for half-an-hour!
These are all my toys! Mummy likes to rotate our toys so that we don't get bored.

Beach bump

I am a beach bump. I am shaking off the water after a swim. Cookie is looking far away into the sea...

Sunbathing at the beach


I love to roll and dig into the sand at the beach after a swim! That is Precious shaking off the water after her swim.

Sitting on beach chair


I love to play fetch ball with Cookie at Bishan Park. Cookie and I like to squeeze underneath the beach chair to take a rest. Look at Cookie jumping onto the beach chair to take a sit!

Oxtail...

Today mummy gives me an oxtail to chew. Mummy can not stand the raw and bloody oxtail, even though I should be eating it raw, she boils it instantaneously. I am such a good chewer that I finish the oxtail in ten minutes. Mummy can't believe it, she thinks I hide it under the blanket! As Cookie is allergy to beef, she gets to eat kangaroo backbone.

Weekend weather was good...

Last Saturday morning mummy and buttercup brought us to Bishan Park for walkie walkie. As the farm in Bishan Park was being renovated, buttercup managed to take a bundle of pandan plants home with us. The pandan plants are to deter cockroaches from coming into our home. On Sunday, the weather was sunny, and we all went to sentosa Tanjong Beach. Later we have lunch at the newly renovated hawker food at Pahlawan Beach.

Mummy is sick

Mummy has been sicked for a week now. She is always lying in bed. So Cookie and I also lie in bed together with her. With the heavy rain, it's so nice to cuddle up. Cookie sleeps so deeply that she leaks urine on the bed! Mummy is so grumpy when she has to carry Cookie to pee on the newspapers, and cleans the soiled bed sheet. Cookie has been leaking a lot of urine while sleeping.

Nail splitting

Recently one of my nail is splitting. It was not painful to me, but Mummy finds it disgusting to see. I have been pulling on my harness when walking down the block as I want to chase after the cats all the time. I think that's how I got my nail splitted. I like to gallop away, scratching my nails on the rough ground.

Evening walks

For the longest time, Mummy has stopped walking us during evening after she came back from work. It must be all the good TV shows that she wanted to watch at night. But recently we get our evening walks randomly in the week! Wow Wee! It must be that Buttercup was home from work earlier than usual to bring us down walkie walkie together with Mummy! I wish Buttercup doesn't work so hard and come home early every day...

Pet assisted therapy

Long time ago, my Mummy used to bring me to do pet therapy at Dover Park Hospice and Ren Ci Hospital. I must say that I didn't quite enjoy the visits, but I tolerated them. I tensed up whenever Mummy put me on the bed, and I looked the other way when the old folks stroke me. I was so stressed up that my hair begun to thin out on my thighs. So Mummy stopped bringing me to pet therapy.

Deer tendon...exotic treat

Mummy is being adventurous. She gives us deer tendon for chewing. It is not as tough as Kangaroo back bone, and we can chew it faster. Cookie has a chipped molar tooth that contains tartar. Mummy brought her to the vet for teeth cleaning last year, but now the tartar has come back. Mummy is always looking for things for us to chew so that we can clean our teeth. (Cookie was traumatized by the trip to the vet for teeth cleaning, may be she thought Mummy was abandoning her. She cried and cried when Mummy went to fetch her back. Mummy has to stop her van on the road side to calm her down, as she was hysterical!)

My sexy bald chest...

My bald chest started to appear after I was spayed at seven-month old. Mummy has been doing a lot of research to try to make my bald chest hair grow, but in vain. Is it hormone? Food allergy? Thyroid? Cushing's syndrome? Genetic? Vaccination? Heartworm medication? Too much surface contact? Allergy to wet grass? Mummy always applies rosemary infusion to help hair grow. Oh well...

Afternoon delight

Nowadays Mummy always surprises us by coming home in the afternoon for her lunch. I am so delightful! When Mummy is ready to go back to work, we get salmon treats wrapped in little towels. I am very good at untying the knots to get to the salmon.

Wednesday, May 24, 2006

Search...Game...

Every morning before Mummy goes for work, we will play a search game. Cookie and I will be locked in a dark room for several minutes. When the door opens and Mummy says "search", we will rush to look for the salmon treats. After years of training, I am very good at this search game. I will head for the bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, living room, inside my dog house, under the cushion, on top of sofa, every little corner, behind the door... I think I can do search and rescue, but Mummy says my legs are too short to climb the hills and cross the bushes.

The dog patrol at sentosa

I was at sentosa Tanjong beach on Saturday. While I was playing happily on the beach, the dog patrol team came by to request that all dogs to be leashed. Mummy asked if it's ok to be unleashed if the dogs were in the water, and they said yes. So mummy and I raced to the water and played fetch the catty game (I have a favorite catty toy that I like to fetch). Cookie was always on a three meter long leash so the dog patrol didn't bother her. Mummy is training me to walk by her side without a leash. I suppose if I walk closely with Mummy the dog patrol will let me go without a leash.

Construction site at home

When I was younger, I had so much energy that I renovated my home myself and with some help from Cookie. I came up with the idea of re-doing the bathroom, kitchen, living room flooring and bedroom. One day, while I was busy with the renovation work, Mummy came home and strangely her eyes popped out and mouth dropped to the floor. I have dug out and eaten Mummy's sweet potato plant and dragged the pot together with the soil from the bathroom to kitchen, across living room and deposited the soil on Mummy's bed!

Separation anxiety

Wonder woman and Dragon Lady are coming back today. Precious shall be so happy. She had another sleepless night, chewing the table's leg, dragging out the roll of toilet papers, pooping and peeing outside newspapers. This morning when Precious was back at her home, I heard her scratching the door and barking non-stop. Poor Precious!

Wednesday, May 17, 2006

Precious walking around whole night

Last night while I was sleeping, Precious couldn't sleep. She jumped onto the coffee table and messed it up, peed and pooped in the toilet floor and not on the newspaper, and walked around the house whole night. In the morning, Precious jumped onto the bed and woke up mummy. This morning mummy was quite pleased that Precious ate all her breakfast. As according to Wonder Woman, Precious may be home sick and refuse to eat.

Precious staying over at my place

Precious is staying over at my place for a few nights. She is a vegan! Wow, I didn't know a dog can be vegan! She eats brown rice, carrots, corn, tofu, sweet potatoes, chick peas, and mango. Her dog poo has intact chick peas and corn in it. I think she can't digest them. I know I can't digest chick peas too. At night, Precious likes to walk around while we are all sleeping. She misses Wonder Woman and Dragon Lady. Poor Precious.

Training at dinner's time



My dinner is home-cooked. I eat boneless chicken, pumpkin, spinach, kelp, and flax seeds. Look at me all poised and ready to gobble up my dinner in front of me. But wait, mummy first gives us the "down" command, and when she says "OK", then I shall eat.

My new dog house...

My favorite neighbour Wonder Woman gave me a new dog house! I always like to burrow and rest in covered places, so a dog house is perfect!

Cookie also enjoys the new dog house very much. We take turn to rest in it. Sometimes we both squeeze inside the dog house! There is a window inside the dog house that we can peep outside.

My birthday party 2006!

I have my birthday party on 13 April! I am three years old. Precious and Cookie came to my party.
Dragon Lady bought me a doggie birthday cake and lots of freshly baked doggie cookies.
Mummy tasted the doggie cake and screamed out that it was sweet! The cake was supposed to be no sugar added. Mummy said it may be added with artifiicial sweetener. I didn't know why mummy was so upset about the sweet cake, I loved it! Yum Yum!

No more vaccination, hurray!

Nowadays I don't go for annual vaccination no more. Mummy said all these drugs are doing more harm to my immune system than good. Also, for some reasons I don't get to eat broccoli, avocado, potato, orange and grapes anymore. Mummy doesn't feed us onion, mushroom, chocolate and chicken bones. Mummy has been busy making natural treats for us in the kitchen. This morning I searched all over the house and found hidden freshly baked dried liver. So yummy!

Three kittens rescued during heavy rain!

Yesterday evening Precious's mummies, Dragon Lady and Wonder Woman, rescued three drowning kittens during the heavy rain! The kittens were being flushed down the drain. Dragon L and Wonder W carried the kittens to dry ground. They called my Powerpuff girl Buttercup to help. Buttercup brought down old clothes, hot milk and hot bottle to try to feed, dry and warm the kittens. Buttercup went to look at the drain and found the kitten's mummy. She opened up the drain, everyone backed away, and the cat jumped out. Watching from a distance, Buttercup saw the cat carried the kittens one by one using her mouth to a safety nest.

Mango Feast!

I love mango feast! Precious, the shihztu in the middle, is my neighbour. We play with each other almost everyday. Her mummy loves to feed us all types of fruits.

Aggressive Chewer!

Cookie is such an aggressive chewer. She usually gets a bigger piece of the kangaroo backbone than mine. She often finishes hers way ahead of mine. One time she even chipped her left upper molar tooth. Mummy brought her to the vet and she got a teeth scaling procedure.

Cookie is also a fear-aggressive biter, and dominating. She also dislikes children. Mummy has been training her through dog obedience for many years. Cookie is always leashed as Mummy often gets panic attack whenever Cookie heads towards a target, be it roller blader, sweeper, karang guni, a child, etc.

Weak bladder

As Cookie is getting old, seven years old, she sometimes leaks urine while lying down, chewing her toy or sleeping.
