Cookie hurts her gum

Last night when Buttercup was vacuuming, Cookie went to bite on the vacuum nozzle and hurt her gum. Blood was everywhere. Mummy quickly used ice to stop the bleeding. Cookie was a very good dog, she was calm and licked clean her blood. After five minutes her bleeding stopped. There was a dent on her top gum.

Mummy said that any more accidents with her doggies, she will faint. As she doesn't want to see any more blood coming out from us.

My friend Bobbie


Here's my friend Bobbie. He likes to jump up and down sofa and table. His Mummy has called my Mummy in three occasions for the vet's telephone number to go to the vet because Bobbie has sprained/dislocated his legs. One time he jumped into the bath tub and stayed there for the whole day as he couldn't get out.

My Wounded Left Leg

When I woke up from the anaesthesia at 3:00 pm, I saw Mummy and Buttercup. I was quiet and tired. I got a 2.0 cm deep cut into my muscle wound on my left leg. For the next seven days I can only do short walks. I can not jump onto the sofa, or stand on my hind legs. The vet did such a good job on cleaning up my wound. I am on antibiotics for the next seven days.

Billie Jean is bitten by JRT, Winston

Billie Jean was at the dog run this morning. There was a JRT, Winston, playing fetch ball. Then he dropped his ball next to B J’s drinking cup, and started to drink the water. B J went over to smelled his ball. Winston got so possessive of his ball and he started to fight B J. B J quickly submitted! Winston’s owner quickly pulled up Winston who was showing his aggression. I didn’t know B J was bitten at the left leg. So I quickly walked B J out of the dog run. Nicki’s Mummy pointed out to me that B J was limping. And I saw blood gushing out of her left leg. I quickly carried B J in my arm and Nicki’s Mummy came to rescue. We cleaned up the wound, poured water over it, and wiped it with tissue paper. B J was traumatized. As I was so traumatized myself, I did not take down Winston’s owner’s handphone number.

Now B J is at the vet. Her left leg was shaved so that the vet can check her wound thoroughly. B J is so scared that her gum appears whitish, not pinkish. My T-shirt is bloody from carrying B J. Painkiller is injected. She is sedated and the wound will be stitched up. I will be picking her up from the vet later this afternoon.

Oil Painting of Billie Jean and Cookie

Ninja's Mummy went to Saigon, Vietnam this week. She brought back for us an oil painting by local Vietnamese painter! Isn't it beautiful? I look kind of fierce in the painting.... but I am actually very friendly.

Mooncake Festival

Mummy, Buttercup and Ninja's Mummy from Australia are enjoying mooncakes and drinking Chinese tea. The mooncakes are from Sze-Chuan Court. The mini Snow-Skin mooncakes are Strawberry & Dark Chocolate, Rum & Raisin Chocolate Truffle, Champagne Truffle, and Baileys Chocolate.


This is Cookie eyeing the mooncakes.


This is me hoping to get a bite of the mooncakes. Sometimes I drool...

Cookie Posting

Cookie on a see-saw. She loves doing agility, and very good at it. I don't do agility as Mummy is afraid that I may hurt my backbones.

It's been awhile since I posted Cookie's photos on my blog. Thought her friends may miss her. Here are Cookie's latest photos while she celebrated her ninth year-old birthday. Do you think she has aged when compared to her younger photo? This evening when Mummy walked me to Bishan Park, I met Jack and Joey. They are really fit and active. Jack looks good for his age too.

Shinny Coat After Oatmeals


What do you all think? Does my coat get shinnier after eating oatmeals? These photos were taken this morning after eating oatmeals for dinner instead of rice. My Mummy is thinking if she should give me cod's liver oil to make my coat shinnier.

This is a wire-haired dachshund I met at the K9 Kampus today.

Cookie's growth at the bum

Miracle has happened with the growth at Cookie's bum. This morning Mummy tried to locate the growth and it was gone! It disappeared! Gone! It wasn't surgically removed. Just that Mummy has been spraying "Richard's Organics" incredible skin spray for dogs. Or may be eating oatmeals has helped Cookie recover. The growth has simply flattened by itself without any treatment from the vet. Mummy is so delighted!

Cookie's Birthday 31 August 2008

Cookie is nine years old yesterday on Sunday. Nothing special was going on... We didn't get to party or going for a long walkie walkie. Except we have human guests visited us at home. They ate mooncakes and drank Chinese tea. There was a little boy who came with his father. I was trying to smell him when he jumped onto the sofa and jumping up and down screaming. He thought I was going to eat him. Later he jumped onto his father's arm.

At night, Cookie was being naughty. She peed all over the pillows. I heard from Buttercup that tonight's dinner will be special for me and Cookie.
