Finding the safest car harness for dog

I ordered a car harness for my dog yesterday. So Donna’s sitting on the car floor days will soon be over. She’ll need to have her doggie seat belt fastened, just like the humans. :P

Fasten that seat belt! Finding the best safest car harness for dog

You may have seen Donna sitting on the car floor quite often. More out of necessity as we travel on cabs and Uber alot. And some drivers do worry about the dog dirtying the seats or dog hair turning off subsequent customers.

But personally, my own preference is for Donna to be on the car seat secured to a reliable car seat belt. So yah, please don’t let my past photos of Donna sitting untethered on the car floor make you assume that this is safe.

Run For Light 2017 Pre Event at Orchard Road

The Run For Light 2017 Pre-event came and went this Saturday, 5 Nov. I was told the guide dogs will be attending so I planned to bring Donna to the walk. Unfortunately, the guide dogs were unable to show up since they are working dogs who have to work. BUT have no fear, Donna the calefare is here! 🤓🤓🤓

Dog potty time! Let’s review 5 Pee Pad Brands

Halloween is coming! So I thought it’ll be a great time to write about a horrifying topic…

Dog potty time! Let's review 5 Pee Pad Brands in Singapore

… Pee In The House! 😱 😱 😱

At first I assumed it was normal to use newspaper for Donna’s peeing and pooing needs in the flat, because that was what paper-training means right? The dog is trained to do it on newspaper.

But I soon realised that newspaper was a really bad medium for absorbing pee. And Donna had and still has the unfortunate habit of kicking the newspapers (and peepads) around after doing the deed.

So you can imagine how good absorption is so important to me. Donna tracks the pee off the pet sheet when she is done. Sometimes, she kicks the pee pad around in the toilet, sometimes even out into the common hallway. I really don’t want all that pee to smear around on the floor.

In this post, let’s do some tests to see which pee pad will work better with Donna!

Whether you are currently toilet training or have toilet trained your dog, you will find the following test outcomes helpful to you!

Singapore Special goes to Dog-friendly Pasta J

You know an eating place has succeeded if you can remember at least one of the menu items and will return again to eat. I have a bad memory. Exceedingly bad. But I can tell you that I tried the Chicken Soup Pasta at Pasta J, and I wouldn’t mind returning again.

But I’m jumping ahead of myself. Let me start from the beggining…

8 things I like/dislike about The Secret Life of Pets

Most doglovers or families with children would have caught The Secret Life of Pets in the cinema near you by now. I watched it yesterday and really enjoyed it. It was well-paced, lots of laughs and encourages you to Adopt, don’t Abandon. I liked the music.

But there were also some things, I wasn’t really impressed with. So here’s a list of what I liked and didn’t like, with some scenes from Youtube in case you would like to relive some of them. So, spoilers warning, I guess :P

Springleaf Nature Park & Verdure Cafe

At first glance, Springleaf Nature Park does not seem to offer much entertainment for someone walking a dog.

It’s pretty small so there’s not much for you and dog to explore and spend time there. But this park does have two features that can be a draw for dog lovers. One, there is the Verdure Cafe with outdoor seating. Two, the park is landscaped with “fallen” logs that make perfect photo opportunities in a green space. Come, take a look!

ASD Movie Night with Dog

We went for our first outdoor movie night with Donna at The Grandstand yesterday night (Aug 21, 2016)!

The nostalgic movie night was organised by Action for Singapore Dogs (ASD) to raise funds for the ASD medical budget. We were originally supposed to watch My Dog Dou Dou, starring Flapper Choo, at People’s Park Carpark. But due to withdrawal from some sponsors, the event was eventually held at The Grandstand. The movie was replaced with Hotel for Dogs.

Pokemon Go: Monster Hunting with Dog

Pokemon GO

pokemon go singapore dog

Their dogs may not be aware of it, but for some dog owners, their pets appear very much part of the game experience. Original video with audio here: @pb_sgmongrel (Singapore Special/Mongrel)

I was rather amused by this augmented reality game on your phone that is taking the population out of their homes in droves. And bringing them together in public spaces as one united people this National Day, dogs included. 😝
