Back from the Clinic...

Hi everybody!

I'm finally back home from the clinic after being warded for 3 days since my sterilization. I'm found to have poor blood clotting system and that's why I have very bad swelling and bruises around my wound.

Tired but extremely happy to be back home with my own blankies, cage, toys, treats and my family!

The vet had put a pressure bandage around my wound area to help in reducing the swelling.

And this is where the bruises are.... It might take days to weeks for the bruises to be gone completely.

Yesterday night, my family rushed me to the vet after discovering that both my eyes and muzzle were swollen upon returning from my walkies. My family totally freaked out and not knowing what had happened, they called the emergency hotline of the clinic as it was after consultation hours and Dr Jeremy Lee of The Animal Clinic was on standby to treat me.

The conclusion was that I was stung by unknown insects (probably bee?) whilst walking on the grass downstairs. It's either the insect flew and stung me or I stepped on a dead bee and got stung... Anyway, I was given 2 injections to reduce the swelling and it actually works!

My face had gone back to normal and not the 'pig-head' as compared to yesterday. The doctor said my family did the right thing to rush me to the vet as later in the night, the swelling might get worse and if my throat swell, I might suffocate.

So to all doggies out there, please remember not to play with insects! They are DANGEROUS alliens

Btw, I'm being booked for neutering on 27 Dec (this coming monday). Hope that I'll be a really good boy then!

Giant Papillon??

Today, Small jiejie bought a new doggie magazine and according to a table inside the magazine, papillons are supposed to be 'extra small' in size!! Did you hear that correctly?? EXTRAAAA SMALLLL!!! Even my Miniature Schnauzer girlfriend - April who is similar in size as me is classified only as 'Small' as well as Mimi - the Jack Russell Terrier who is also 'Small'....

So does it means that I'm an overgrown papillon??

Fussy Eater

My family says I'm a super duper fussy eater. Firstly, I refuse my Addiction Lamb kibbles so my family changed my diet to a home-cooked meal consisting of pork, rice, veggies & pumpkin. But soon, I got tired of it even when they changed my meat to mutton. So the next thing they do is to buy doggie canned food for me. I've tried unagi & seaweed, duck with potatoes, king salmon, chicken with pasta etc..etc... but still I got tired after only eating once.

So yesterday, my family decided that they had enough of my fussy eating. They consulted the pet shop and they recommended Pronature. According to them, even the fussiest dog will want to eat it. Guarantee!!

My family warned me that this will be the last time they're going to change my diet and I better like it. So they bought for me the Roasted Duck with Orange Flavour. Roasted Duck with Orange in it??? Yes! You've heard right! Strange new flavour....

So how do I fare? Yap, I pretty much like it except that I've got a really poor eating habit of walking around after just a few mouthfuls and then returning to it when I feel like it.

"Daddy, is this my new food? Smell nice from the outside! Hmm...but I think I prefer the doggie on the packaging!"

Here's the packaging - Duck with Orange! Hope it's yummy because it cost a bomb at over S$40.00 per pack!!

At Loggerheads

I've always been a friendly little guy but Buddy just can't get along with me. Whenever he visits our house, he will want to bark at me and bully me.... Why so??

We can't even be best friends when we went downstairs for walks. Whenever he sees me running towards him, he will bark at me intending to frighten me away. But being the nicey cool guy, I'll just turn and walk away ignoring him. He's fine with humans but not doggies.

Hmmm.... must think of a way to break the ice and get him to be friendlier.

Here's me at loggerheads with him whilst having walkies downstairs.

Btw, a little updates on the puppy girl next door...
She had already moved to the factory where she was born as she was making far too much noise and garnering lots of complaints from our corner neighbours. Poor girl... she'll have to contend with living with other stray dogs (aka big bullies) at the factory of her family. I'm going to miss more friend friend...


Buddy's family went to Bangkok last week and got some pressies for me! There's a pack of Liver Treats, a yellow collar and a cowboy hat!!

Here's me posing with my new cowboy hat. Buddy has one too! Big jiejie say she's going to make matching bandannas for both of us when she's free so we can wear for Chinese New Year! We can be the Cowboys Gang!! Poor Charcoal will be missing out from the action...

Aren't I handsome?? See my big smile!
