On Sunday afternoon 2:30pm while walking around the housing estate, an unleashed standard poodle followed us.. as Cookie was walking very slowly behind Mummy, she got bitten by the poodle. The poodle attacked without being provoked. Cookie already submitted and belly up, the poodle continued to attack. I was lucky as Mummy dragged us away from the poodle as fast as we could..

I hope to maintain shinny and healthy coat... After bath with medicated shampoo.. I really likes the feel of the shampoo.. All my dead skin scrub off...
In March this year I have an episode of urinary tract infection.. with this experience, Mummy learned how to tell when I have uti again.. I will drink lots of water and my pee will be very diluted.. that's the sign of me getting uti ..

Mummy's friend visiting from Australia and brought us a lot of kangaroo meat dog treats.. Yummy Yummy
Due to chronic ear infections my ear canals have narrowed and walls thickened.. This means I need long term management of my ears..

For many years my ears have some yeast growth.. and for years Mummy uses diluted apple cider vinegar to clean my ears and the yeast growth is manageable.. but now for the first time my ears are bacteria infected! When Mummy began to smell the bacteria stinky growth (like those bacteria cultures Mummy used to grow in the lab).. and milky liquid in my ears oozing.. Mummy straight away rushed me to the vet! Thank God we went to the vet! The bacteria are very resistant to normal antibiotic... even apple cider vinegar has no effect, it only makes my ears irritated and soar with redness. The antibiotic application was for two weeks.. but after one week we have used up a bottle. So Mummy went to get another bottle..
After more than a week of treatment, I am back to my normal self... eating my breakfast, active, and barking again.. I no longer yelp at the touch of my ears.. and I no longer go hiding under the bed... Mummy is so happy I no longer hiding away from her.. My relationship with Mummy is back to normal again.. as loving as before...

I am sleepy after general anaesthesia for teeth scaling.... the bandage is to stop the bleeding.
Lucky this time only one left last molar extraction.. mild periodontal disease. Vet's bill is $176.55 (Mummy thinks it is quite reasonable). This time no need for antibiotics..

Cookie has increased in weight now at 5.6kg. Where is her waist? No more supper of hot oatmeal for her from now on.. Today at the vet full blood test, biochemistry and urine tests, Cookie's health result has come out even better than mine.. Cookie is 13 years old.
Huge vet's bill almost $400 at The Animal Doctors. Mummy always insists on Dr Cathy Chan even if making appointment with her requires longer waiting time. My urine contains white and red blood cells. I have urinary tract infection. I am now on antibiotics for two weeks. We have to submit my urine sample again in two weeks' time. I will be going for teeth scaling again.
At the vet.....
Cookie's general health is good... her teeth are also good, no tar tar and no gum disease.. better than mine. Mummy has done a good job brushing her teeth everyday. Cookie has better genes than me.. Am I from puppymills?
My teeth have discoloration which won't go away even with scaling by the vet. Overall my blood and biochemistry tests showed normal results, meaning my organs are functioning well. I am 9 years old. My heart is good too.. and Dr Cathy Chan said I have shinny and healthy coat. I have a few yeast cells in my ears.. which Mummy will continue to use apple cider vinegar to clean my ears. Yeast infection in my ears are long term condition.. It is under control.
