Mum told me she found some posters on a missing White Chihuahua around the area recently. How sad! D: We'll definitely be looking out on our next walk! Hope the Chihuahua returns home safe and sound...

As a 1-year-old pup...
This reminds me. I almost got lost once too, when I was younger. Someone was stepping in through the door and I took the opportunity to dash out. I was curious and there were so many different scents... I just couldn't resist! I wanted to run off leash too! (My recall wasn't all that good last time so Mum didn't want to let me off leash until she could trust me to come back when called...)

I climbed up the stairs to the next few storeys above, but Mum caught me in the end. Mum didn't scold me, but she made extra sure that I wouldn't be able to run out ever since. Now that I am a dog of almost 4 years, I know better than to run out!

Wouldn't it be scary to be lost? :(

My Giant Toy Collection!

Thank you to all those who responded to my previous post! So here it is... A post entirely for my toys! Mum finally got around to uploading the photos onto the laptop. It's hard for a dog with no thumbs to do that!

As you know, I have a whole bunch of toys!

They are all stuffed into an old doggy bed I once had as a puppy, before I got my very own kennel.

I'm a proud homeowner!

I used to have some toys in the past but they mysteriously got lost after I chewed a hole and fluff came out... I suspect the humans have something to do with it.... But anyways, these are the ones which are still alive and well. (Ok, maybe not well, but you get the idea.)

(In no particular order)

Toy(s) no 1. First on the list are my meat toy, banana toy and a.. weirdly shaped toy. These 3 were bought at Daiso in Vivo City, for only $2 each. Don't worry, the quality is good. It was made for dogs :P

These toys are super soft! And judging by the fact that I haven't killed the squeaker or torn it apart, pretty good quality :D

Toy(s) no. 2. These are the first four toys I ever had! (There's a red ball behind the blue cat.) They are all rubber... this was before mum and family found out that I preferred to bite soft toys instead of rubber ones. They only started buying soft toys for me when they heard from a shih-tzu owning relative that her dog seems to prefer soft toys.

Fun fact: The toys are a little black because before I was house trained, mum put newspapers in my crate in case I peed on the floor. Don't worry, these toys are clean... I would never pee on my toys! Besides, I was house trained in a week! :D

Toy(s) no. 3. Toys mum's mum got me from overseas!

I bit off the butt of the turtle... Oops.

Toy no. 4. This was my Christmas present last year! Or was it the year before...

The three tri-coloured strings used to be in a plait but I solved THAT problem :D

Mum decided to plait them back. Hmph. I am proud to say I
untangled it pretty quickly! :)

Toy(s) no. 5. My colourful toys from PetStages!

I love all of them because they have different textures :D I used to own one with bells in it but I cracked them in the first minute of having them! Hehehe...

Toy(s) no. 6. Mum gave me this green Chomper because it was bone-shaped and looked cute. Humans. I don't really play with it now because it's too tough for my small teeth. These are for big dogs, Mum!

Toy(s) no. 7. Another Christmas present! I think it came with a Christmas tree but I bit that one until the stuffing came out... yikes.

I kept pulling out the scarf, so Mum tied it really really tightly around the bear. Poor strangled guy... :( I bit off part of his ear, as you can see. He looks like half-elf now BOL.

Toy(s) no. 8. A yellow and blue bunny! With freckles. Do bunnies have freckles? I haven't actually met one. Hmm.

Toy(s) no. 9. One of my favourites! It's a good substitute for slippers when I can't find any in the house XD The best thing is, this slipper is small enough to fit in my mouth!

And nope, it doesn't encourage me to bite human slippers at all! Why bother biting with human's when you have your own right?

Toy(s) no. 10. This is the fabric ball I was chewing on in my previous post! It's a ball AND it it's soft! Best of both worlds! :)

Toy(s) no. 11. It's exactly what it looks like. A bunh of old socks tied together to form a sock chain. Mum "donated" her old socks (after washing!) 

How nice of her.

Toy(s) no. 12. You already met my mini carrot! And this is my Carlsberg! Don't worry, I won't get drunk BOL. I wrote about it somewhere in my old blog... This is my second Carlsberg because the first one I had as a puppy was all torn and had to be thrown away.

R.I.P first Carlsberg!

Toy(s) no. 13. A squeaky drumstick! It's rubbery but it squeaks really loudly so I don't mind it that much!

Mum grumbles when I start to run around the house squeaking it loudly at midnight though... I wonder why.

Toy(s) no. 14. Have I mentioned how much I love balls?? The soccer ball on the right is my absolute favourite! It used to be able to squeak but I have destructed it a long time ago. Since it's really small and can roll under the sofa and cabinets and stuff, Mum only lets me play it under supervision...

The ball on the left is a basketball! I can't shoot any hoops though, sad to say. Basketball is NOT one of my talents.

Toy(s) no. 15. I recently acquired some new socks! And a lot of them! About ten :O In different colours, too! These are tied with a knot in the middle... no chain this time. Mum knows I love chewing on knots... :D

Toy(s) no. 16. You all know my new green chicken, of course! (I suddenly notice I have many green toys. WHY?)

And that concludes my huge toy collection! How many are there in total? 25, not including the 10 socks! WOW!

How many toys do you have? :) What are your favourites? I would love to know! :D

Toys are Important!

Since Mum has started school recently, I'm not allowed on the computer as much anymore :( Sorry guys! I will still try my best to update and keep up with everyone's blogs, though! :)

Anyhow, I have been planning to make a post dedicated to my toys. Toys are an essential part of a dog's daily life... I cannot imagine not having any toys at all! D:

Mum helped me count (I'm not very good at counting... I only have 8 fingers after all!) and apparently I have more than 20 toys! Even with 8 fingers I know that's a lot!
I love playing with balls!
So what do you all think about writing a post about all my twenty-something toys?? :D

Being Dogly

So mum was watching this documentary on the National Geographic channel about how dogs are developed in the womb and how their born and how they evolved from wolves. Which is all very interesting but I got tired after a while BOL.

I'm a male dog! Not a bitch (question: why is that an insult to humans? There's nothing wrong with being a girl dog). I do manly -- or in this case, dogly -- stuff like... sleeping? Um. I guess that's not very dogly... But still.

"Sorry mum, I have some very important sleeping to do."

The Little White Dog

I went for a walk in the evening with Mum and her dad, and I must say, it was an interesting walk. It started off like any other walk, but as we were walking by a small mall nearby, these few kids approached mum and her dad.

They looked pretty young. About 9 or 10 years old; human years of course! They were super agitated and stuff. I barked once or twice... they got me excited. Of course I didn't bark at them. Why would you think that? Ahem. But I was pretty calm after a short while.

Anyway, the reason they were so hyper was because they had found a little white dog tied to the branch of a small bush nearby, right outside the entrance of the mall. They suspected it had been abandoned and wanted to find help.

Here, mum shall continue the story: Of course, I wanted to see the dog and see what to do. I suspect the children approached us because they saw we were walking a dog and would know what to do. I passed Muffin's leash to my dad, who continued Muffin's walk while I stayed and checked out the dog. The first thing I did was to check whether he (it was an unspayed male) had a collar. 

He did,, but it did not have any tags; just the leash attached to it. The leash was wrapped around the branch and not very tightly at that. Just tight enough so the dog wouldn't be able to escape by himself.

The dog was relatively healthy (not underweight or overweight, no fleas, etc) and was quite friendly, though I could see that it was nervous; his tail was tucked between his legs. The dog was well-cared for and I doubted anyone would just abandon him like that.

I made conversation with the children, mostly the girl (the rest were boys). Apparently, her parents were dining at an outdoor restaurant nearby. She told me she had been there for a 'long time', though I am not sure how long it was. She also told me she already had two dogs at home, so keeping the dog was not an option.

I told her the owner might have just decided to pop into the mall and left the dog outside, planning to return later. Though it was extremely irresponsible, it was quite possible. After 5 to 10mins, my suspicion was confirmed as a man approached.

He silently unwrapped the leash and picked up the dog, who was jumping around in excitement. I left after seeing the owner approach. However, I am appalled at how anyone would so irresponsible to just leave their dog alone like that. What if someone decided to keep the dog and take him away? Or what if the dog somehow managed to escape? There was a busy road not far away. The dog didn't even have an identification tag!

I know I would never just leave Muffin alone like that. I highly doubt many responsible dog owners would too. It is people like these who should learn how to be a responsible dog owner before actually owning one....

However, I am really touched by how those kids cared for the dog and actually bothered to seek help. I am amazed at their compassion, especially since they are still so young.

Muffin here! I can't believe someone would abandon that dog like that! Anyway, that's how my New Year walk went. Pretty eventful huh? :)

P.S. Sorry about the lack of pictures! :(

New Header

As you may have noticed, I now have a new header! This photo was taken when I was only 9 months old. This is just going to be a short post... but to make up for it, here is another picture of my green chicken!

P.S. I have actually chewed an eye off by now. (This photo was taken on Christmas Eve) Oops. But I'm sure I'm not the only one who does that! ... Right?
