WELCOME HOME, Amber!!!!!

On 4th March, Sunday. Amber was officially welcomed to her HOME!!! Yay!!!!!*Claps, claps,claps* She was not sad or feeling anything when she left her breeder, when she went in to her new home (a totally new place), she wasn't scared or sad instead she was sooooo excited! All she wanted to do was to play, play and play. We were total stranger to her but she wasn't afraid of us and kept wanting to play with us, over-active i think. She was kept in a 3 feet by 2 feet playpen, with a cushion (her bed), a Kong smart toy, a Nylabone chew toy and a Pee tray. When she was let out of her play pen, all she did was run around the living room and chew everything she saw! (Puppies like to chew as a sign of playing, puppies always chew each other when they're playing together). So, she kept trying to chew on our fingers, toes, even the metal on her playpen. Bad Habit!! We disciplined straight away. I guess this is her first time getting "scolded", so she didn't react very well. It takes some time to teach a dog what's right and wrong, especially a 3 months old puppy. We corrected her chewing for 30 mins, since it was her first time we brought her new items like the "leash and collar". She resisted at first, kept stretching her neck, biting the leash, however after some time she got used to them and started to go with the flow. Oh, I also want to praise Amber, she's just so smart! She did all her pooping and peeing on her Pee tray on her first day! Wow, I was so surprised! My friend's puppy has been doing potty-train for more than a week, till now his puppy still peeing all around the house. I am really glad Amber did this right, one thing lesser to teach her haha! We also tried to train her how to "SIT" on that day, yes I know, it was her first day yet so little affection, so much training... Well, it's always good to train a puppy ASAP in order to let her become a good, happy and healthy dog. Dogs are really smart, you just need to be patient and consistency. Just like treating a baby, everything to them is so new.

Amber on her Pee Tray, she loves it btw LOL!


P.S: we made a video to monitor Amber's actions while we are away for the first time. It is very important for dogs/puppies to learn to be alone while their owners are away. It is best not to say goodbye/look at them or give affections to the dog before you go off, doing so will only make the departure worst. Amber has learn how to deal with us being away now. The video of her first home alone is at the Video section of this blog, please enjoy! :)

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, seek

How to take care of your dog before and after Spay/Neuter

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.

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 becaus
