Singapore, Pets, Sales

It is hard to place happiness between Singapore, Pets and Sales. When it comes to Singapore and Pets, most people looking from outside(other countries) can easily see that we are far apart from bonding with our pets compared to our neighbours. For starters, we are not allowed to bring pets into public transports. Not the bus, not the train, not even some of the cabs. If one is to be caught having a pet on the bus, or the train, you get a fine. I have once tried asking the mrt staff at tanah merah MRT station. I asked whether it is ok to bring pets on the train, she answered no. So i replied "not even inside an unseen carrier"? to my surprise, she replied "you can bring, but you see the man inside the counter behind the MRT glass? He is very good at catching people who tries to smuggle  pets even in a very hidden bag. Theres once, he caught a school girl who put a small dog in her bag, get pulled into a corner and was reported to the police, she cried hard." This is a very saddening case, when did trying to bring a lovely pet to board the transport system become such a sin? I believe most people put their pets hidden not because of the fine, but because they know that some people in Singapore do not like pets and will make a big fuss if they happen to spot one, even a hamster.

For cabs, some drivers just ignore customers with dogs, even in carriers! They drive pass acting as if they didn't see you, some do allow but will keep staring at your dog as if it will bite. Some ask whether the dog will piss or poo on the seats.

I bring Amber to walk frequently, some people would whisper she is very cute. Most do not dare to get close to her. It shows that how many people have not even touched or been close to a dog before. Someone asked me "hey your puppy is cute, will she grow bigger?". Does puppy not grow bigger? These are signs that we need to work to show that our pets are not a burden, it is a blessing.

Do you know the consequences for not picking a dog poo? its a fine, again we need to be reminded not to do certain things with a fine. In taiwan, there are no laws on such things and people bring their pets around the country and have no problems of picking of poos like us. It shows that people here are like robots, we need rules and laws to follow.

Pets only come in when you have Singapore and Sales, because only then money is possible to be squeezed out. I see tons of pet shops and most of them have pets for sale, and then you have online pet shops, mostly sells pet products online but there are a few who list pets for sales online! It means you can look up the pet's picture and decide whether to purchase them or go down to take a look. The law has tried to limit people from abusing pets to make money but using law cannot change people from having a good heart, law cannot stop people from trying to make money by breeding more and more pets and then throw them away when they can't be sold. It is up to people's conscience on having a good heart, laws can only stop one to a certain point. Prices range for dogs are really big, you can find a poodle at S$800 from a home breeder to a $4000 poodle with pedigree cert. Personally i do not care about if a dog is very cheap or with a so called pedigree cert, most importantly the seller must show that they care about their dogs, not just breed and breed. They must show that they know alot about their dogs and the breed.

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
