Cookie swallowed 1 meter long string

Mummy came home from work and found Cookie munching on long black string coming out of the red dog house. Mummy quickly pulled out the string from Cookie's mouth. After about 1 meter of string came out from Cookie's throat, it got stuck in Cookie's mouth. Mummy managed to break free at the end of the string. And Cookie coughed out a few times.

The next day in the evening, after meal Cookie went to poo. A long string came out of her anus and was stuck half-way. Mummy helped her to pull out the string. In order for Cookie to relax so that the string can come out, Buttercup helped to soothe Cookie while Mummy slowly pulled the string out. About 1 meter of the string finally came out together with the poo! It was not a pretty sight.

Teeth Cleaning

As Mummy and Buttercup are very worried about keeping our teeth clean, we now have a series of teeth cleaning agents.
1. Cinnamon & Tea Tree Oil Toothpaste - A natural way to clean pet's teeth and gums and keep pet's mouth fresh and healthy.
2. Enzymatic Toothpaste - Active ingredients Glucose Oxidase and Lactoperoxidase
3. PlaqueOff - Contains only especially selected seaweed. Effective against bad breath, tartar and plaque.
4. Biotene - Enzymatic brushless oral solution. Drinking water additive. Helps to remove plaque and inhibit odor causing bacteria.

Our teeth are brushed daily, Thursday and Sunday we have bones to chew to further clean our teeth, Biotene is added to our drinking water once every four days. We have just finished the PlaqueOff treatment and Mummy is still thinking whether to continue with it or not.

Brown Rice For Dinner

Instead of eating oatmeal for dinner, Mummy has decided to give us Thai organic brown rice. The brown rice is so fragrant and taste so good! I love it very much. Better than the oatmeal.

Brown rice is simply white rice that has not had the brown-colored bran covering removed. So brown rice is considered a whole grain. Brown rice contains fiber, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, zinc, carbohydrate and protein.

Cookie lost a bottom front tooth

Yesterday evening Buttercup noticed that Cookie has lost her bottom tooth. She must have lost it while jumping and barking at the workers outside. She has another two shaky bottom teeth and a shaky top front tooth. Mummy has this idea that once Cookie loses all her front teeth, she would not be able to nip at children and strangers anymore.

Lost Maltese Returned to Home

This morning we walked to Serangoon Garden. On the way we met a lost old male maltese. He has no collar on him. He made friend with us and followed us around. Mummy and Buttercup got worried that he was lost. So Buttercup went around home to home asking if he was belonging to them. We saw a house with two domestic workers washing a car and an old lady with hair curlers, Buttercup asked if the dog belonged to them. Yes! The domestic workers opened up the gate and the old lady thanked us. The poor dog was lost and nobody in the house noticed it.

We continued our journey to Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and have a wonderful breakfast in the morning. What a nice day!

Singapore Botanic Gardens

Today is a public holiday, Hari Raya Puasa. Early in the morning at 7:30 am, we set our journey to Singapore Botanic Gardens.

I took a photo in front of this lake with swans swimming in it. Buttercup thought she saw a big water creature moving in the muddy water.

We were patiently waiting for Buttercup to return from getting us some breakfast.

We were having papaya prepared by Wonder Woman and Dragon Lady.
