I remember it was last year around dec, my husband's grandma birthday, she showed my husband a video of her cousin's Maltese doing tricks like sit, shake hand, change hand and etc. My husband fell in love with the dog instantly. Since that day, he has been looking at dog videos on Youtube. I was not THAT interested then. However, when he showed me some dog videos on Youtube, it completely changed my point of view. Dogs are not just cute and loyal, you need lots of patient, trust, care and alertness to have a healthy and obedient dog. You have to give them your fullest in order to get back theirs. It's just like having a child, which my husband and I decided to have one maybe 2 years later. So, by getting ourselves a dog not only help to train our patient and etc... we also have a new cute family member! I became really fond of dogs and I knew that it's something I gotta experience once in my life time. Yeah, that's how we decided to get a dog. One thing i really dislike about dog is they drop their furs/hair all around the house and I have those sensitive nose issue, I used to sneeze almost every morning when i woke up during my school days. So after searching and finding information about it, we found it! There are dogs that won't give any problem to people like me - Maltese, Yorkshire, Toy Poodle....and many more. Just google it and a list of dogs that are hypoallergy will show up. At first, I wanted to get a Maltese due to their long hairy WHITE coat! But my husband prefer Toy poodle coz of their curly hair, while I thought toy poodle looks like auntie (like auntie hair sometimes, you know like those very short curly auntie hairstyle? Haha!) We spent quite some time looking for more information about these 2 dogs and deciding which dog to get, Maltese or Toy poodle. We were really confused, well this is a very long term relationship so we have to choose carefully in order not to have any regret later.
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, seek
