Nat: baby has arrived!

hello all!

the stork had came by on the 8th Oct, and delivered me my baby Megan :)

Here's a picture of her to share..


she weighs 3.34kg at birth. the doggies have been really sweet and understanding since Megan's arrival. they are very curious about this new addition in our family, and would always wanted to sniff her out especially after Megan had poo-ed! they get very anxious when Megan cries..

one thing I am very glad of is that Megan isn't the least terrified of the dogs' barking at all. she didn't jerk one bit when the dogs bark at our visitors. I guess she must have gotten used to their barking sounds when she was still in my tummy :)

okays, off to feed the doggies now, take care guys!

Nat: what a surprise

Gotten a new comment on my previous post today..

YOur mummy so evil hearted and bad mouth doubt your sibling will inherit all the bad things from her. Cant imagine.
- Posted by Anonymous at 29 September 2009 11:09

Such good grammars this person have. Gotta thank him / her for reading this blog, though :) But why so chicken, didn't leave any names? I bad-mouthed alot of people, I really couldn't pinpoint exactly which one of them you are. At least I don't act noble or plead innocent. I am human afterall :)

On a more serious note, baby's progressing into week-38 now! The furballs are getting more and more sticky to me; I guess they knew that their baby sibling's arriving soon. Am already on maternity leave now, anxiously awaiting for baby's arrival.. Catch up again soon!

Zen: Mummy's so FAT


Our mummy had recently grew so fat that she had trouble getting in and out of bed every day! She even walk at very slow pace now! Seriously, I don't recall seeing her ever this fat all my life.. What happened to our mummy? Daddy had been spotted always rubbing and talking to mummy's fat tummy nowadays, I'm beginning to think he'd lost his mind. The hoomans have also recently added a squarish thing into our room which they called the 'Baby's Wardrobe' and filled it with lots of cutesy and nice smelling clothings meant for Patches' size.. And then we also heard that daddy's gonna set up the 'Baby Cot' soon. What's happening?!!

A few weeks ago, mummy brought home a lady whom we now fondly called Auntie E. According to mummy, Auntie E is our helper and she will be staying with us to help around with the household chores. I love Auntie E cos she had been bringing me for my daily potty breaks and also had been playing with me while mummy is away at work. Auntie E had also been very hardworking in keeping our home clean. Mummy & daddy is very pleased with her performance so far. We hope to have Auntie E around for good as not many people knows how to handle us and play with us..

Nat: Let's pray for GiGi

Oh dear.. I hadn't been reading up on some blog updates and decided that today I shall do some catching up to see what everyone's been up to. Got a shock when I realised that our dear friend GiGi will be put to sleep on this coming Friday.

Please pray for dear GiGi; she had been such a dear friend to her mummy and to my Patches. May dear GiGi be released from all her pain and sufferings; may she run free and happy over at the rainbow bridge.

Zen: We're all clear

Following up on our check-up report with the bioresonance machine, mummy had been monitoring us for a while. So Patches and I went for our blood test last week, and we were given the all clear from our vet! Thank you all of you for your kind words and support given to us and our mummy!

We're not very sure about how accurate the bioresonance machine is, but surely there had been some concern over why Patches had not been gaining weight for the past one year (she had been losing weight instead.. only 3kg now!). While I on the other side gained some 500g+ as i now weight at about 8.5kg. Mummy says I'm a big girl now, but I don't really mind.. I know that I'll always be mummy's little girl at heart :)

As for Patches, the poor girl is all skin and bones.. she doesn't seem to be growing any meat or fats on herself even though she eats alot. Mummy will take the vet's advise to increase Patches' food intake to about 2x the current portion.. which means she will be eating the same portion as I am! I do hope little P will gain at least some weight or grow some fatty meat so that mummy wouldn't be so worried. She is still as active and naughty though.

My grandmama (that's my mummy's mummy) is in town since last Thursday, and mummy is so happy about it. She hasn't been able to go back to her hometown since January this year, and had been missing my grandpapa and grandmama heaps. Grandmama accompany mummy for a shopping spree to prepare for the arrival of our new baby hooman sibling, which is coming very soon! Gosh, I am so excited and a tad nervous at the same time.. Mummy had been telling us that our new baby hooman sibling would be a baby girl, and that we would have to love her like how we love mummy at the same time. I'm not too sure if I could do that, but if our new baby hooman sibling could feed us yummies then I don't think I'd mind having her around!

Nat: Bioresonance for Pets

Anyone heard of this Bioresonance for pets treatment?

I was introduced to this treatment some time back when I attended the "Better Owner Better Dog" seminar organised by the Pets Magazine a few weeks ago. Since they offered me free check-up for both my girls, and the procedure is very simple, I thought, WHY NOT? And so I went for the complimentary check-up last Sat evening.. Wasn't expecting anything major in particular, I was just curious about how the machine works in the non-evasive way (the pet just have to sit still on top of a mat) to diagnose internal problems, if any.

Passion For Pets Center

After the check-up, I was then briefed on the report for both the girls.. Was a tad taken aback when I was told that the machine diagnosed both of them to be having serious kidney problems.

Many thoughts ran through my head.. thoughts like did I do something wrong? Fed them the wrong diet? Toilet training habits?

I was then told to bring my 2 girls for a thorough blood test at the vet clinic to confirm if the machine diagnostic was correct.

I googled and read up on kidney problems on dogs, realised that those dogs with kidney problems are put on BARF diet for easier absorption of nutrients.. Hmm, my girls had been on BARF for more than a year now, so I'm guessing that the part about the diet went wrong is out. Moving on to my next suspicion, which is toilet habits, both the girls have very different toilet habits! Patches is indoor-trained, therefore she gets to go pee/poo as and when she feels like it. While Zen is outdoor-trained, she only gets to go pee/poo when we bring her out for walks.

So what went wrong??? How accurate is this Bioresonance really? I will monitor the girls for a while more before deciding if I should send them for the complete blood test, as advised by a close friend. Please do pray for us..

the reports..

Zen: lack of updates

We're so sorry we've been lacking of updates recently. We'd just want to let you all know that we're all doing fine and having fun pouncing on each other. The weather is crazy nowadays.. It can get so hot that I am literally sweating from my paws. Well, remember to take in more fluids, pals, and don't get dehydrated! My mummy is so afraid of the hot blazing sun in the late evening that she refused to bring me down for my evening walkie until the sun sets! Can't blame her as she don't want to risk me getting heatstroke in this kind of weather.

We hope to be able to update this blog more often. Meanwhile, let me end this post by sharing a pic of mummy's fat tummy..

Zen: *wiggles wiggles*


I am back! Thanks to all friends that were concerned about my health, I am now well and alive! :) Mumy suspected I might just have caught the flu bug or something, but I regained my health the very next day and was back to my usual self again. Patches had been so sweet, she slept and snuggled close to me that whole night when I was sick :) Gotta say I do love her some times when she wasn't her usual bossy self..

Mummy's stomach had been growing like it's nobody's business. She even eat and sleep like a pig! I really felt cheated of my walkies now as mummy doesn't feel like walking me for longer distance.. Well.. can't blame her too much as she said she getting tired really easily. I'll just have to make do with whatever I was given, and mummy seems real pleased with me. She gives me more pats and belly rubs now when I behave myself better :)

Off to take my nap soon, catch up with you all again next time!

Nat: my Zen is sick..

Totally freaked me out last night when Zen wouldn't respond to me, even when I tempt her with food. She appeared to be lethargic, abit shaky and stoned.. I couldn't sleep well whole night, worrying about her as I don't know what went wrong. Baby girl refused to even put her head down to rest until very late at night.. Even then, I would still wake up every now and then to check on her and make sure that she isn't in pain or anything. I would have rushed her to the vet first thing this morning if her conditions didn't improve, but luckily it did. Zen appeared much more responsive than last night, and she showed interest in food when comes feeding time. Am going home straight after work to monitor her again.. Pray that she is well!

Zen: we're not missing, just busy

Hi all!

Sorry we had not been able to update our bloggie for quite some time.. Mummy had been busy these days with all those meet ups with friends and families, and also our maternal grandpawrents were in town visiting last week! I love my maternal grandpapa very much cos he knows how to massage me just at the correct places. I wished they could've stayed longer but they went back to their home sweet home after only a short 3 days stay :(

Mummy was also super excited that her pawrents came visiting as she hadn't had the chance to go home to visit them since January this year.. They even brought alot of goodies for mummy, knowing that mummy misses home very much. How sweet of them :)

We hope to have more time to update this blog soon, mummy has been feeling so lethargic lately that all she wants to do is laze in bed and rest. She told us that we'd be expecting a new sibling pretty soon, I wonder how my new sibling looks like..

Patches: coconut tree re-growth

Do you think it's growing?

you see that noose's shadow on the top left corner? maybe I should just hang myself..


Or maybe..

I should just sleep it off. It's definitely easier than trying to reach that noose.

Patches: stock-up day

Last friday was stock-up day for our freezer. Our food supply was depleting, mummy went to the wet market to get fresh meats and veggies for us to last for at least a whole month. She even brought us along! But we only get to stay in the car with daddy while mummy went to get our yummies..

So then I waited patiently in the car. I looked to the left..


and looked to the right..


but there were no signs of mummy returning anytime soon. And all these while I was busy looking around sniffing for mummy, Zen was sleeping away!

*snore* *snore* *snore*

Couldn't she at least show a little concern?! Gosh! Luckily mummy returned like 15 minutes later. I was so happy I jumped around in the car's backseat, trying to reach out to my mummy and kissed her. Zen only tried to whack me with her ever furious tail wagging motion.. *ouch*

Afterwards, mummy and daddy brought us along for their breakfast session in our neighbourhood. The coffeeshop workers they all liked us very much, so we have no problems tagging along.

It's been too long eversince mummy had been able to snap decent pictures of that black dog, so while waiting for her breakfast to arrive, she snapped this pic of Zen.. A little over-exposed, but at least you all can now finally see her features!


Back at home, we were tired out after the whole morning of constant waiting and begging for food that we had rest.. Now would you all please excuse us while take our beauty sleep.. *yawnzzz*

Nat: sisterly love

PhotobucketAlign Center

caught both of them snuggling together on Zen's bed :) Patches doesn't sleeps on the bed mostly, maybe because she is furry.. she prefers the cold cold floor and would always sleep under our human bed. Anyway, she looked like a sealion here.. can't find her legs!

Zen: bling bling!~

Look what Twinkle's mummy gotten for us!


Bling blings of our initials! Z is for Zen, and P is for Patches :) Thank you very much, Auntie Z!


I almost forgot to list out the next round of our dlogger friends playing Pay-It-Forward:
Ody & Zaedy

Please support them! :) We had lots of fun playing this game.

Patches: Day out in a carrier

Early Friday morning, mummy chunked me into my long-forgotten carrier and out we go. First stop: we went to meet this goldie with long armpit fur..


I have a feeling that this goldie is in love with me.. Why, you asked?


He was all over me while I was present! Kept sniffing me and my butt butt.. and following me around like good ol' bodyguard :) If you haven't noticed.. he is in the background of this picture too!

Next stop: VIVOCITY!

We met up with lots of overly excited hoomans.. Mummy identified them as Auntie Z (Twinkle's mum), Auntie S (Boo Casanova's mum), Auntie K (Rossi's mum), Auntie L (Goofy's mum) and also Auntie Eil (that's Bae Bae's Eil). I got spooked by Auntie L and then I couldn't resist but to barked at her.. Can't blame me, I'm just a small timid little girl! But later on I found out that they were all really nice! Sorry, Auntie L!

Here's a bootiful pic of me taken by Auntie Z:


The hoomans then shopped around Vivocity for hours end while I sat comfortably in mah carrier, being carried around like a toy by Auntie Jenn. Many bypassers went "ooooh" and "aaaaah" over how cute I looked when I sat still in my carrier :)

Later that day they went for their Korean BBQ dinner.. And I wasn't allowed to join them so mummy left me in the car with all 4 windows winded down 1/4. Weather was cooling so I slept through the period mostly as I was pretty exhausted. Mummy did came and checked on me during dinner, and she let me out for my potty break and some stretching excercise before putting me back into the car again. I had been a very good girl on that day!

Hope to meet up with all the aunties again soon!

Zen: Great news!

Uno has most probably found a suitable forever home! Our mummy heard that Uno is now doing great at one of the potential adopter's place.. And we're so glad that we had helped in spreading the words on forums and our blog :)

Moo Moo is still searching for his forever home though.. Please please, kind souls out there, would you give Moo Moo a chance to live with you forever?

On another note: HURRAY!~ words has it that some of our bloggers friends (umm.. most likely their mummies, actually) across the causeway are coming to visit tomorrow! Can I expect some huggies and maybe some petties please?

Wednesday, 25 March 2009

Nat: and so the game has moved on

Yep, I'm talking about the Pay-It-Forward game. All pressies have been prepared.. in fact, I have already sent out one package! The remaining 2 others are waiting for their 'owners' to come claim them at end of this week when we meet :)

Those that did not get a chance to play this game with us, please do support those that we had forwarded to! :) The list shall be revealed next week.

Nat: Uno and Moo Moo

You guys remember the cute french bulldog Moo Moo? Well.. apparently something happened and he is now still looking for a good home. Nobody's at fault here as Moo Moo's owners weren't firm with their decisions at that point of time.

Please do help spread the words, Moo Moo is still looking for a good home! And so is Moo Moo's brother, Uno. Some pics of them:

Uno, the salt & pepper coloured Miniature Schnauzer

beautiful Uno


brotherly love


Moo Moo and Uno

Moo Moo

A little bit more info about them:

Uno is coming 5 this July. He is sterilised and microchipped. He is overall healthy, but he has slight seperation anxiety so he tends to whine when left alone in the house. He will do well in a household that has another dog to accompany him; this is proven as he didn't have separation anxiety after they gotten Moo Moo. Uno is also paper-trained. And he gets along fairly well with all dogs.

Moo Moo will be turning 2 this August. He is also sterilised and microchipped. Moo Moo is healthy and playful. He doesn't get along well with other dogs except Uno, so we would want him to go to a home that does not have an existing dog at home (meaning, he has to be the only dog in the household). However, we do believe that his behaviour can be corrected as he is still so young and he is eager to learn. Moo Moo has problem with excitement pee. He will pee when he is too excited (i.e.: during playtime and when praised). He is toilet-trained and is overall healthy.

I will also be posting info of their adoption on several dog forums based in Singapore.. If you are interested in adopting any one of them, please do leave me a comment with your contacts and I shall be contacting you shortly.

Nat: Who would have thought..

the cute little black black button nose..

complete with peacfully shut eyes..

and a serene sleeping face..

could become this scary..

and all along he was sleeping on my chest!

Zen: Pay It Forward

Hi all!

Few weeks ago, Tibby invited me to play the game called Pay It Forward! and finally mummy passed me this fat package last night. It has got my name on it! In pretty Pink nonetheless!

*sniff* *sniff* *sniff*

I smell Tibby on the envelope! Hmm.. I wonder what's inside..

A boootiful keychain with mummy and my face on it!

A squeaker toy!

And also a bag of treats! Pardon me for the lousy pics, mummy doesn't really have the skill to take good pics (Mummy: and you couldn't wait to play with the new toy!)

A decent picture of me and my gift from Tibby




This beautiful keychain has got my name at the back :)

Thank you, Tibby, for the wonderful gifts! We love them all so much!

Now it's my turn to Pay It Forward!

The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and 'pay it forward' in their own way.

This is how it works...I am going to send something to the first 3 blog owners who wants to take part. [please leave your email address if I don't all ready have it]. In turn you will then post about this on your blog, link to me, then send something to the first three people who sign up to play along through your blog.

There are no cost restraints, BUT don't go crazy! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found.No biggie, just a gift that will make the person smile.Maybe something unique from where you live?

And, remember that kindness does not have to involve money; there are untold ways to help others every single day, everywhere you go - just look around.

Please leave me a comment if you want to play! Hurray!

Nat: Nadia / Luna updates

Nadia had gone to her new home for close to 2 months.. Last night I sms-ed her new owner to get some updated pictures of her and today I receive them in my inbox. I also quote from her new owner:

"Nadia is getting naughtier - she wakes up at 5 am in the morning and demands that she be taken for a walk! She is also getting used to apartment living though I can tell that she loves the outdoors. She turns deaf when she sees birds. Once she spots birds, no matter how loud you call her, she doesn't respond.

But she's happy, healthy and very sweet."
