Am I in time for the last post of 2008?

Hi guys!

Just wanted to drop a short note to wish everyone of you a Happy New Year! I hope 2009 will bring lotsa happiness & joy to each of you. It has been a crazy few months at home. Trust me, you wouldn't want to be caught in the mess.

I also thought I should post some piktures of Susie to prove that she's doing well and not eaten up by me. She's growing and growing...and frankly, I have never been so tired before with Susie playing (aka attacking) me all day long.

Look at her now! She's 4+ months now. This was taken on her very first walk at the park.

Okay, so maybe she didn't walk too much. She couldn't keep up with me cos we were on the double leash which is a silly invention IMO cos Mom complains that we are trying to make her fall on her face in public and humiliate her.

She sure looks happy don't you think? :) Btw, this was taken with Dad's new wide angle lens. So it kinda gives Susie the big head dog effect if you know what I mean?

Alrighty, because I am lazy and Mom says she needs to get her butt moving to cook their wedding anniversary dinner now. Here's the link to Mom's Facebook so you can check out Susie's piktures. Don't worry about me cos I'm doing well and keep checking back for exclusive piktures of us (TOGETHER). Yes! We do co-exist in harmony at times. hee...

Kibbles and more Kibbles...

Hey guys,

Lately, Mom has been complaining about a lack of space on her kitchen's countertop cos it's filled with containers of kibbles meant for us. I have always been eating Timberwolf's (TW) kibbles from the time I came home. Mom always add some other food like meat/vegetables to my kibbles (and not forgetting my supplements too). I am not a picky eater and basically, I'm just glad to have food given to be at regular times unlike some other puppy I know. *cough cough*
I'm currently finishing up my TW's Ocean Blue formula which is supposed to be a fish based formula until they added in chicken fats (not that I cannot eat chicken). In any case, recently, Mom got hold of a sample of another brand called Taste of the Wild (TOTW). Despite the size of the kibbles looking way bigger (like M & Ms according to Mom), I am definately digging the new kibbles. :) Yummy~ so I'll be moving on to TOTW's Pacific Stream Canine Formula soon. It says "A fish protein, grain-free formula for all life stages with sweet potatoes provides highly digestible energy for your sensitive dog. Made with real smoked salmon, this formula offers a taste sensation like no other. Supplemented with fruits and vegetables, this fish and potato formula delivers natural antioxidants to protect your friend's body from the damage of everyday living, supporting a healthy immune system and overall good health. Your dog craves a taste of the wild.Go ahead and give him one." What a load of garbage, there's only one test for me - the TASTE test.

That's just me. Susie is another story altogether. She's a really picky eater!! She gets kibbles with minced meat and milk too. She takes like forever to finish up. I hate to say this...I never got milk when I was a puppy. *sighz* However, thanks to Susie, I get a little milk in the morning now. When I say little...I mean it's really little like maybe 2 to 3 spoonsful of milk. *woeful* Susie's taking a mix of kibbles from TW's Lamb & Apples Formula and Natural Balance's (NB) Potato & Duck Formula.

Okay, I counted - so we have 4 different kibbles at home. But I think it's reasonable considering we have two dogs. The 2 hoomans have one whole fridge of FOOD to themselves and Mom's complaining abt a lack of countertop space?

PS : Mom caught me in action helping myself to Susie's bowl. Crap..now I can't do that anymore cos she moved Susie's bowl away from our common fence. (Luckie's Mom : I usually place Susie's food bowl beside their common fence and since Susie's bowl is a bit smaller/higher compared to Luckie's bowl, her food is piled up higher. I caught Luckie squishing her nose through the gap in the fence trying to nudge Susie's kibbles out of her bowl. Luckie was even using her TONGUE to flip the kibbles out. Once the kibbles land outside the bowl, Luckie uses her paw to slowly scratch/paw the kibble to her side. My god..all that trouble for one kibble!! I wish I could get it on video. I have no idea if I should laugh or get upset with Luckie. LOL!!)

And this is how we play

Good Morning!

It has been a little over a week since Susie came home. Things are slowly settling into place. We get our regular rescheduled play time cos Mom says we need to be supervised during play. Seriously, she can be a total control freak at times.

Mom says I put on some weight cos I have been eating a lot lately. Susie still has to drink milk with her kibbles and so I get some milk for my breakfast too. :P Plus, Susie is a very slow eater unlike me. Mom caught me going into Susie's play area a couple of times to 'help' her finish up. I mean, I wouldn't want Mom to have to wait for Susie to finish up and then wash her bowl so I was simply being helpful. However, Mom didn't seem to agree. In any case, I just wanted to say that I feel that I'm not getting enough food because my portions seem so tiny compared to my sister.

I read that you guys wanted some piktures of us together. Well, Mom did try to snap some piktures of us playing cos we hardly sit down quietly together. Unfortunately, the piktures turned out kinda blurry. Mom can't figure out why we always want the same toy even though we have 2 of the exact toy in the house. I'm not going to tell her why..go figure it out yourself woman!

Okay, so the first pikture is really blurry. But yes, we are playing!

Here's another pikture of us...Gee, I just realised that our coats contrast so brillantly in the sunlight! In any case, I sure hope your week is going great! :)

Meet Susie Girl

Hello friends,

Remember my last post? Some of you guessed it right - I did not get a bigger play area although it'd be cool to get more space. I'd like to introduce my new sister to everydog & Girl Girl. Say Hi to Susie Girl! :) She's coming to 8 weeks old now and was born on Singapore's birthday - 9th Aug 2008. She's a long hair shaded red mini dachshund like me. Her parents are from Japan and so we expect her to be much smaller boned compared to me (Australia bred). But that's okay, Dad says he likes my size cos I'm nice and sturdy! heh heh... always nice to feel appreciated. Susie looks kinda grouchy in the piktures cos it's the first time she had to endure a photoshoot. The piktures were taken when she was 6 weeks old.

The first night was horrible cos Susie kept whining and whining. That meant I had to keep barking together with her afterall it is very exciting to have company at home. Mom had to drag me to their room to "try to" get some sleep. I was obviously very worried about Susie cos the moment the room door was opened, I'd dash to the kitchen to keep her company. (Luckie's Mom - Luckie's really attached to Susie now. She doesn't want to follow us around the house anymore and is contented just staring at Susie through their play pen. She was really rough with Susie initially- kept nudging Susie non stop and doing those scary-sounding play growls. But I think Luckie got a hang of playing with Susie now and it's really heartwarming watching them bond. It makes double the poop and double the pee all worth while IMO.)

Thank dog - she stopped her non-stop whining after the first day. It's mostly peace & quiet. I think I'll get some rest since she's quiet now. *yawn* I guess having a sister isn't that bad afterall.

A regular & maybe not so regular weekend...

Hallo Everydog & Girl Girl,

It was Singapore's First F1 race last night and boy was it noisy. My hoomans realised there was nothing else to watch on TV except that and ended up watching the race anyway. I was feeling kinda tired and having pre-monday blues so I decided to laze around on my own.

It was another regular weekend for me - I had my not so regular walk around the neighbourhood and my regular bath session with Mom. However, there was some not so regular construction going on in my home! Dad was busy putting up new play pen fences beside my current home, Mom was busy washing my old toys....I did my inspection of the works in progress while the hoomans went about doing their chores. I wonder if the hoomans are extending my current play area - ya know, like reconstruction of homes. I could do with a bigger play area....*ponders*

I'm not too sure I like what is going on....


A Very Worried Luckie

Happy Barkday Mom!!


How's your weekend coming along? Today is Mom's Barkday and they decided to spend the day at home with me. Okay, so maybe I'll forgive them for leaving me at home yesterday while they went out to this secret "place" carrying lotsa stuffs. I am pretty sure both of them cheated on me while they were out at this secret "place" cos they came back smelling of many, many dogs. I assure you I gave them a thorough sniff all over and nothing escapes my nose.

Mom bought me a pink Puppia Harness a couple of months back but I never got down to modelling it here.

What do you think? Is Pink my color?? :)

I miss going outdoors!! I think my tan's fading...*sighz*

The Puppia Harness has some metal parts that actually rusted over the last few months. :( I have no idea how that happened. Luckily, Dad says he can replace those metal parts.

In any case, I just wanted to wish Mom a Happy Barkday - you're one year older now! ha ha...I'm going to spend some time with the hoomans before another long work week starts tomorow.

It's been freaking 5 months?!!

Hello frenz,

I can't believe it ~ it's been 5 freaking long months since I last blogged! If you did stop by to see if I'm ok, well....I'm doing fine. My pawrents have been really busy with their work and yadda yadda yadda. I seriously doubt you guys want to know how boring my life has been.
I have been occasionally checking out your blogs when I have time and I am glad you guys are having more fun than me. :)

Last weekend, my pawrents were helping me with my manicure and god knows why they didn't bring me down to the groomers. *cough* cheapskate *cough* Mom was holding on to me while I was having fun licking the peanut butter off her sticky but yummy fingers. Dad had the fun task - clipping my lovely LONG nails. Okay, so I admit I was squirming in Mom's arms but that's her fault cos she didn't hold me tight enuff. And so he goes ahead clipping my nails one and one and then.....he said.."oh S**t!!" I was like what S**t? I don't see any poop around? Anyway, to cut the story short, Mom's shirt was stained with blood from my nail and the entire area (of the living room) had blood droplets splattered all over the clean floor. LOL! Don't worry guys, the bleeding stopped and I'm fine. Mom says thank dog it wasn't her favourite shirt.

In case you are wondering, that clipper even had a safety blocker thingy to ensure that accidents like this don't happen. Do you think we can get a money back guarantee?
Will try to write soon !!
