Some parts of Bishan Park are closed for redevelopment. There will be a natural river when Bishan Park reopens in 2011. We are so excited, as we can swim there in the near future.
We were packed into Mummy's van this morning and headed for Bishan Park. When Scandalous has enough of walking, she would lie on four feet and forcefully refused to walk.
After hours of outing, Scandalous had a shower. Mummy finds that Scandalous is not as fit and active as she was 4 months ago in June. At first she was reluctant to walk on leash... she would spread herself on the ground and refused to walk. After every 15 minutes of walking, she needed her rest. She was able to walk non-stop for more than 30 min in June, but now she walked slower and for shorter interval. May be it's because of her Eltroxin and steroids medication. Eltroxin is used to treat hypothyroidism.

Scandalous went out to play this morning.. The weather was nice, after many days of raining which resulted in flooding in Bukit Timah area. The sun was shining and Scandalous was loving the sun tanning.
Mummy has found out that the steroids make Scandalous increase in thirst and urination. Mummy was worried that Scandalous may have kidney problems.

After the initial peeing and pooing everywhere in the living room, Mummy put a pee tray lined with newspaper next to where Scandalous is sleeping. She is so smart, as she knows how to use the pee tray right away! Mummy is so happy! Sometimes Scandalous also can find her way to the kitchen where the newspapers are and pee and poo there. Scandalous is good girl! And she knows where the water bowl is too!
She doesn't like her spinach and snow peas, and eats only her dry food (fish base). But she loves to eat carrots, banana, apple and yogurt. Mummy is trying to cut down her dry food portion and gives her more vegetables.

Scandalous's Mummy is travelling.. so she will be with us for a while. Currently she is on four types of medication, Ambrotose Complex, Eltroxin, Dexamed (steroid) and Hepavite. She has been scratching her body a lot.. Her Mummy will slowly change her commercial dry food to home-cooked vegetarian diet. Now my Mummy has cut down her dry food to half and supplement with home-cooked vegetable for dinner and fresh fruit for breakfast.
While on medication, Scandalous is very thirsty. As she is blind, she has been peeing and pooping all over the house, even though Mummy brings her to newspaper every 2-4 hours.
Odie was naughty last night when Mummy left home at night to go pick up Scandalous. Before Mummy left, she brought Odie downstair to pee and poo, but Odie didn't pee or poo. And after Mummy left, Odie peed twice in the house, once on my sleeping soft pad, and another pool on the living room floor. Odie is not newspaper trained. He is outdoor trained. When Mummy came home last night, she quickly brought Odie downstair and this time Odie peed, but not poo. When Mummy gave Odie his dinner, Odie didn't want to eat unless Mummy pat and stroke him, and praise him good boy to encourage him to eat. Odie eats very slowly too.

This morning I met so many doggy friends at the Hougang Companion Dog Show. The place was very crowded and the speakers were blasting very loud.. Mummy bought Noah's Ark 2010 calender and T-shirt to show support to Noah's Ark good work in helping the stray dogs. This morning we have sunny weather...

I have been eating boiled chicken breast or thigh for dinner for the past six and a half years now. Not that I am complaining... but Mummy has decided that we will get stir-fry lamb or beef once a week from now on. Yippie... So today we get to eat lamb and chicken gizzard. We eat gizzard or liver once in a while.

This morning Odie and I have a nice walk and enjoying the morning sun... Mummy took a photo of me pooing.. of course Mummy always picks up my poo in a plastic bag and throws into the rubbish bin. We are law abiding human and dog.
We met Manis this time.. she is a big girl now, not as playful anymore. She is doing very well... But now she doesn't hang out at my block anymore. She hangs out a few blocks away from my void deck nowadays.
