Dog dead after being sent for grooming

Sadly this happened in Singapore.
The Maltese - Brownie is dead after suffering for 6 hours in a car boot.
Shop name: World of pets (used to have a website but they took it down after this incident)


Our personal view:

This is basically a pet groomer's carelessness led to a dog's death. What's more unforgiving is the many lies they have told instead of telling the truth of their carelessness. Why was the dog inside a car boot in the first place? The owner, who happened to be the pet groomer/deliveryman proclaimed that an "unconscious" mistake led to him putting a customer's dog into the boot of his BMW car.

Question: Why did he use a BMW car to use as a transportation for pets?

Most of the grooming salons in Singapore provides delivery services. They use Vans instead of normal cars so that it will be easier to put the pet carriers on board while this World of pets used a BMW luxury car to deliver pets to and fro?

Whatever the true motive is, our point to share this news is not only to tell people to be careful of groomers like this, but also to warn you that there are still many others out there that has no love for our pets, and they still choose to do business in this area simply because it is good money. Maybe they were once an animal lover, maybe they used to be dog show winners, whatever it is these people have since been shadowed by money and they will resort to abuse and lies if it can help them maintain or increase their reputation. We truly understand that nobody of the right mind would want to hurt or even kill a dog, but being irresponsible and lying is not the right way to go, it will only make things worst.

This is also part of the reason we still continue to update our blog with truthful reviews and feedbacks on pet shops and grooming salon even when we sometimes receive threats from people that do not want others to know about the truth.

We truly understand that there was nothing Brownie's owner could do to prevent this from happening although some people blamed the owner from not bringing their dog to the groomer personally. These people obvious do not understand the commitment of working adults, not everyone has the luxury to personally bring their dog down to the groomer every single time for 12-15 years. Rather it is the groomer's responsibility to take utmost care for other people's dog, we do not pay the transportation cost for nothing, we pay it for our dog's safety to reach your place and they are to return safely with no excuses. We can understand health issues that surfaced unexpectedly can be caused by the dog themselves, but things like bad handling and irresponsibility will not be tolerated.

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

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
