Nat: Sweetie Luna is Adopted!

Last picture of her from yesterday's Adoption Drive.

Our sweet Luna had gone to her new home yesterday! Seen here in the picture above, she was wearing a tag that says:
The Cocker Spaniel
Adopt Me!

Tag was made by the very nice 'Satan_gal' whom I knew her from one of the dog forums ages ago. This was a brilliant idea indeed, as we parade her around ECP area while handling out flyers to onlookers caught looking at the sweetie with her tag. We definitely caught alot of people's attention.

Hope Luna will be well loved and doted by her new family. Her new parents were head over heels in love with her yesterday!

Many many thanks to all who had made this possible for me and for her - the sweet sweet Luna; to all friends who had gave me continuous support and lend me a helping hand. I can not be more proud than having friends like these. Thank you all for your efforts done, for your kind words and support through and through. May God bless you all :)

Nat: May I share share?

Luna: Hi Zen, may I share share your bed bed with you?
Zen: Okay, whatever..

Luna: Thank you, Zen. You're the nicest thing ever, well, next to your mummy, that is.
Zen: Why, thank you..

15 minutes later...

Zen: It's MY bed, so you better move your ass over to the other side now.
Luna: oh.. okay. So long that I could still rest my pretty head on it :)

Such a heartwarming sight :)

On anoter note: Luna is still looking for a good home. Please help spread the word, guide them to this blog, leave me a comment and we'll proceed from there on :) This sweetheart is a smartie, and a real darling.

Nat: Meet Luna

The previous post about the bald brownish gal, that's Luna the English Cocker Spaniel.

Luna has a sad sad story.. read more about her on Bear's blog. Such a sad face, many would say, but Luna's personality is nothing close to sadness. Previously was named GirlGirl, I figured I'd give her a new name to signify a new beginning for her new life. Thus she is now fondly called Luna, and she responds to it.

like a child

I do not know if Luna have had any beds before, but she sure does love to lie on one.

Nat: Fur-style / New bowl

new fur-style on Patches again..


My order from came last night.. Finally gotten to replace Zen's old water bowl to a Yogi water bowl. She had been using a Drink Better Bowl for close to 2 years. Initially had wanted to tried to Yogi water bowl but was told that the Drink Better Bowl is made of heavier plastic, thus chances of flipping it over is low. Zen used to be confined in a 3ft x 3ft pen whenever we are out of the house, and she likes to play with her water bowl and made a point to flip it upside down.. Now that she gets free access to the whole house, she doesn't play with the water bowls anymore.

Both bowls worked the same way; each have a 'floater' on the surface to prevent wetting of the dog's beard when drinking water from it. And I recently found out that the Drink Better Bowl starts to emit a funny smell from its plastic surface.. Also, the floater is not working very well so I guess it's time to change it and I'll get the Yogi that I've always wanted.

More Nature1 treats for the girls. They loved it, and I love feeding to them cos they're healthy and organic chew treats. This time round I've gotten the Chewy Chewies, Spare Ribs (2 packs) and am trying out this Tasty Tripe. Even Patches the lazy chewer had taken a liking to this Nature1 treats. Needless to say, Zen is always a foodie junkie.

Oh, and I love the bowl :) I'm a big fan of Powda products. I think they're great inventions. A little bit pricey, but they're good! And in case you didn't know, Doggyfriend offers a wide range of products and their prices are one of the lowest in town. How's that for an online pet store? Their delivery service is prompt and flexible too. You all should try their service. I always order my stuff from them. Two thumbs up for the excellent service, Isabelle :)

Nat: Proud of my babies

Longed for her fur to grow grow grow! Proud of my little baby :)


On another note, was so proud of my Zen this morning. While on our morning walks, we met this male dog with some Pom blood, most probably a mix with Maltese (I think). Zen was all alert, wanting to go over to greet him. So proud of my baby cos she didn't go crazy, jumping and whining like she does when she usually sees other dogs. She promptly sat down when I told her "Sit", and waited when I told her to wait before I gave her the permission to go over with an "Okay". Little girl didn't even tugged me to go over when I said OK, but casually walked over (with her tail wagged a million times per second, nonetheless) :)

This definitely made my day today. I'm in a superb good mood!

Patches: They said I'm a sweet sweet girl..

Hello all.. I just realised someone posted a question to ask my mummy whether I was being given up, as my pics appeared on Bond's and Boo Boo's blogs for the past few days. Just to clarify, my mummy did not, and I repeat, DID NOT, give me up for adoption.

Mummy went to Bali for work for a few days.. And daddy couldn't handle my long coat or tie my topknots for me, so mummy decided to ask Auntie J (that's Bond and Boo Boo's GG) for help to look after me. Afterall, a girl's hands are always much more gentle than of a guy's. right? :) Auntie J, being the first time caretaker for a long coated doggie like me, did very well in combing me and tying up my topknots. I enjoyed myself through out my stay with Auntie J for 5 days. More about my 'holidays' please visit Boo Boo and Bond's blogs, yeah? :) Oh, Uncle T (Auntie J's friend) who fetched us that day, commented to my mummy that I'm a sweet sweet girl.. hehehe..

The video below is taken by my mummy on last week. It shows of me enjoying a piece of the raw chicken wing. You could hear the cracking sounds of me chewing through the bones on the later part of the video :) Enjoy!

Zen: My barkday at home

Last night mummy came home with 2 bags of yummies.. It's my barkday so mummy said I get to eat a small cake just like the one Patches had on her barkday. Check out a video mummy took for me:

Please ignore the whiney ghost sound at the background. That's Patches complaining that she don't get to eat MY cake. You don't see me complain when she had HER cake the previous time. That idiot spoilt brat.

More pics to share:

*sniff* *sniff* *sniff*

When can I eat my banana cake?

Mummy also made us pose with the Nature's 1 chew treats she bought; 3 packs in all - Spare Ribs, Chewy Chewies (beef tendon), and Lamb Munchies (lamb ears). It says on the pack that these are all organic chew treats. We have had the Spare Ribs before, it's yummy and good to chew!

smile~ maybe we'll get the treats if we smile more :P

Are we done yet?

And this is mummy posing with me :)

Imma happy girl!~ Never mind if mummy did caned me yesterday morning.. She did apologise to me by giving me all the love she's got. And let's not forget the cake :) Now I wonder if I oculd just nudge that fridge door open to get to that piece cheese cake.. Hmm....

Nat: Happy 3rd Barkday, Zen.. You got caned today.


What a 'great' way to kick-start my day.. I caned Zen in the morning cos she pooped on my couch. This was after she refused to poo when I brought her downstairs at 6 in the morning.

And now my heart felt heavy.. cos she asked for my forgiveness shortly before I left for work. She came to me when I called her name; promptly sat beside me and nudged my hand a few times to stroke her head, then give me that sad puppy look..

Maybe tonight I'll drop by Angie The Choice to grab a small piece of cake for her.. Hmmm... And maybe some chew treats from Nature1

Zen: Horror!

This was taken by mummy using her mobile phone.. She was taking bus no. 100 the other day, and to her horror, the bus driver lifted his leg and conveniently rested his foot on the side. All this while he's still driving! How uncivilised! SBS Transit will be getting an email from mummy soon!

Zen: Raincoat for moi

hehehe.. Spikey's mummy gave me a red raincoat. She said its too big for Spikey. Who's Spikey, you asked? Well Spikey did signed my guestbook, so you could take a look at his peekcher at the guestbook (and sign it if you haven't :P).

looking dazed..


Me loves the raincoat alot, but let me tell you a secret.. I sulk so that mummy would not make me wear clothings and made me a clown. She could let me wear it when it rains, but not when the weather is so warm! Shhhhhhhh... keep this between you and me ok?

Nat: Zen turns 3 / Patches' 1st anniversary with us

Wow.. time really flies. Zen would be turning 3 years old this month, on the 13th to be exact. In doggie years, she would be 21! Does this means that she is finally an adult? Hmmm.. But I do noticed that my once hyperactive Zen (hence the blog title - hyperzen) had mellowed down a lot recently. She became more quiet and more laidback when at home, though she does go crazy most of the times when she sees other doggies outside.

And this month also marks the full 1 year that Patches had been with me. She came to me on early November last year; and I celebrated her 2nd barkday in May this year. How time really flies.. Patches has now became a huge part of my life, sharing the other huge part alongside Zen (and the remainder goes to the hubby, of course).

I can't help but wonder how messed up I would be in years to come when the time for any one of them is up.. How did they even managed to melt my heart in the first place? Would I be able to cope with losing them? Maybe I had been over-reacting, since they're both still so young. Either way, I wish for them to lead a more fulfilling life..

Happy birthday, my dear darling Zen. Words can't describe how much I love you. Thank you for pawing me every morning when I refused to wake up after the alarm goes off. Thank you for your unconditional love. I love you. And to my baby Patches, you are always a handful for me to handle. But I love you just as much. The past year had been a great one. Thank you for letting me love you and for trusting me. I know it's been hard for you, but we shall work on it together, yeah?

Patches: B.R.A. Charity Sale / "But she's so cute!"

Hi everydoggie,

Today is a special day.. our mummy will be helping Bond's mummy and Dango's mummy at this B.R.A. Charity Sale to be held at U Petgamart (at Pasir Ris Farmway 1). More details here and to join the Facebook support group here.

Well mummy is going to bring ME along. Neh ni neh ni boo boo, Zen cannot go cos she went out with mummy to the beach yesterday w/o me! But I know today is just going to be as fun as yesterday (Nat: her idea of fun is barking her head off at innocent strangers trying to touch her. More about that later in this post..). Oh, oh, and Auntie E of Barkers Grub and Auntie A of Woofy's Choice is going to be there too! *drools* Both of them bakes the most delicious food in town! And safe for everydoggie's consumption, of course.

Please do go down there to support us. We'll be there from 12 p.m. onwards.


The other day mummy was talking to Auntie B (Paw's mama), recalling a past experience of how people go ga-ga over me and my cuteness.. *thick skinned* The situation goes something like this:

Mummy and Auntie B were walking us (me, Zen and Paw.. Yoyo was not with us yet at that point of time) towards ECP McDonalds to grab their dinner. Knowing that McDonalds now do not allow us to dine in their premises anymore, the hoomans decided that mummy should go in to pack dinner while Auntie B would stand outside while watching over us 3.

Then this lady with 2 young children walked past us; and this was what she told her children:

Mother of 2: *points to Paw* This one too big, will bite, don't touch.
Auntie B: *frowned*
Mother of 2: *points to Zen* This one black black, looks fierce, don't touch.
Auntie B: *huh? frowns more*
Mother of 2: *points to me* This one small small, so cute, can touch. Go. Go. *ushers her 2 small kid towards me*
Auntie B: *shocked* STOP. Do. Not. Touch. The. Small. One.
Mother of 2: Huh? Why?
Auntie B: She is not very friendly towards strangers. I'm not sure if she would bite.
Mother of 2: But she's so cute!! *still pushes her 2 kids towards me*
Auntie B: *Blood boils* If you want to touch, please touch the other 2. They are the friendly ones.
Paw & Zen: *wag tails furiously*

At this point of time, our mummy came back with food in her hands. Auntie B just pulled us away from the lady w/o much more talking. When Auntie B relate the whole conversation to mummy, she laughed so hard. Knowing me, I'd probably charge towards anybody (and everybody) that tries to approach me with sudden movements w/o even giving me a chance to sniff them first. I'm not unfriendly; I'm just wary and I don't like strangers. *flashes poor thing watery angel eyes (think Puss in Boots)*

So people out there, if you see me please do let me sniff you first before you touch me. I'm just a schmall schmall cutesy cutesy girl, but that doesn't mean I can be toyed around. I'd warm up to you very soon after if you promise to be gentle and let me sniff you first. (Nat: It's proven to be true. When we brought her go dogruns, she'd take the initiative to go around sniffing other humans but if the other party did as I told them to, meaning let Patches sniff out their hands first and no sudden movement, Patches would let them pat her and after that she'd come running back to me.)
