The beginning of her rebellious stage

Amber is in her 4th month and 2nd week now, she has been pretty obedient between her 3rd and 4th month. However she started to rebel a few days ago. Well...just a week ago she was still very attentive and so much less chewing. Now all her bad habit seems to like coming back, and even start to try her boundaries.

Last Sunday, 08.04.2012, she pulled the pee pad out of her pee tray and she would rip the pee pad and newspaper all over her playpen, once in the morning (when we woke up) and once at night (after we came home from movie). This behavior has been consisting for 3 days as we were pretty busy and unable to monitor her. Since we are free from today onward, we are going to "correct" this behavior from now on. All we did is to stop her when she's trying to bite or paw the pee tray, so far so good, nothing happened today. Just need to maintain the consistency and I'm sure this behavior will be corrected in no time :)

Just remember, ALL THESE behaviors and actions are NORMAL, Amber has reached her rebellious stage which is around puppy's 4th month - 6th month. All we need is to give her a little space and a lot of patience.

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.

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
