Night walk encounter

During our night walk with Amber yesterday, we met a toy poodle who regularly goes down for walk with its owner, this dog was always running around off leash and almost got bitten by one of our guest that had aggression. After telling the owner off she tried to keep her dog on leash whenever she sees us.

However this time round the one walking the dog was a male, whom we supposed was the boyfriend/husband, the dog as usual was off leash, and the guy who was supposed to watch the dog was staring at his mobile screen the whole time! We could see everything going on as we were sitting at the playground, which was a distance away. Both of us were talking about the chance of the dog getting lost or someone kidnapping being high, and after a few minutes the dog actually disappeared, we saw the owner looking for his dog, and yet went back to staring his phone and strolling slowly, this time the dog had ran up a small hill (we could see better from far), owner started to look around and call out but he still couldn't find it. Shockingly, he walked away from the park and into the void deck, we don't even know what he was doing, the dog continued to walk around, mark everywhere and doing whatever it liked, we almost wanted to help take the dog but he returned after awhile, and luckily the dog was still at the park.

It's very common that dogs get lost due to owners being irresponsible, many that lost their dogs will remember saying "my dog will always return", and yet unfortunate things still happen. Is it very hard to put the leash on your hands and watch your untrained dog for just a 15minute walk? When dogs get lost these people start blaming on others that pick them up, if I were to throw a bag containing $1000 on the ground and walk away, do I get to blame people for picking the money up? If your dog runs away it is your fault for losing it, not the one that had picked it up, to many people dogs are not your children, to them your dog is a possession and is worth something, so as an owner no matter what you wish to define your dog as, children or possession, it is your responsibly to keep them safe and secure.

First time to Pasir Ris Farmway (Pet Farm)

04 Feb, my husband's colleague decided to get another puppy so he drove us to Pasir Ris Farmway to look for puppy since we wanted one as well. He already has a 1 year Male Yorkshire Terrier so he was looking for another breed to accompany his Yorkshire. The farm was really hard to get to if you do not drive a car, unless you don't mind calling a cab. It's in the deepest part of the road and there ain't any buses around. When we first went to the first shop at farmway 02, we met a very stuck-up pet owner. Very "hao lian(proud)" with his puppies and even said all his prices are very CNY, all ended with $xx88 which means good luck for the Chinese people. We saw a pretty red toy poodle but it was sold, so the shop owner told us to buy his other puppies instead since all his puppies are so-called "high quality". I think that shop was kinda overpriced for every puppy that he quoted.

One of the pups that he was selling, poodle was just besides it, seeking f…

Vet Review - Light of Life Vet

This was a very tedious search for us, finding a good vet for Amber. I researched online for many weeks before coming to a conclusion. I called most of the "recommended vets" and asked questions regarding consultation, spay and deworming. I also wanted to see whether the staffs knew what i inquired about. I would ask them stuffs like what does the spay consist, when can i take Amber home, how old should Amber be spayed and why. Some of the staffs do not even understand what i was talking about and told me to book an appointment to ask the vet what i needed to ask, so i blacklisted those clinics. I also cancelled out vets that are overly expensive and too far for transport, i do not want to make the trip back after surgery hard for Amber. Although i usually trust the internet for reviews of good vets in Singapore, i do see some ridiculous recommendations on vets based on things like "good to chat", "funny" and i even saw a thread to recommend the vet becau…

Many owners, especially first timers have no idea how to take care of their dogs after spay/neuter operation, owners that do not know what to expect could easily be traumatize by the experience along with their dog. This is why we have decided to come up with a tutorial on how to take proper care of your dog during the healing process. Before deciding on spaying/neutering your dog, it is good to first read up the pros and cons of doing it, don't spay/neuter your dog just because other people do it, check it up, study about it and take some time to decide.
