This Strawberry Drip Cake is the Nicest-Smelling Cake I Ever Ordered for Donna

Ordering cakes for Donna has become a fun thing for me. I’m at the age where there hasn’t been a cake for my own birthday for a number of years. So I guess I am enjoying the cakes vicariously through Donna, without incurring extra calories for myself. Hahaha.

This is why I tend to order “trendy” cakes inspired by real human cakes. Typically what happens is, I browse human cakes. Something catches my eye that I like. I send it to the dog bakery to see if they think it is doable.

Gotcha Day at Dog Daycare – Lots of Fun Humping Kosmo

We adopted Donna 12 January 2013, so I usually try to give her a little celebration around that day. This year we decided to send her to dog daycare so she can have a day of fun with her friends.

This post records the second part of her Gotcha day at dog daycare in the afternoon. You can read about her a walk with her daycare friends at Pasir Ris Park in the morning here.

An Afternoon at Dog Daycare

Donna's Gotcha Day at Dog Daycare - Lots of Fun Humping Kosmo during afternoon playtime

Rolling around is one of Donna’s attention-seeking behaviour when she wants to play.

Donna wants to play but everyone is tired and wanting to rest in the indoor area.

Pasir Ris Park – Exploring Dog-friendly Singapore Parks

Pasir Ris Park is a park that we’ve been to only about a handful of times. It actually didn’t leave an impression on me, but Mr. P tells me we visited on weekends when it was very busy. AND I was NOT impressed by the crowd.

I have to say now…

Pasir Ris Park on a weekday is quite beautiful.

Dog-friendly Cafes in Tiong Bahru

There’s quite a few dog-friendly cafes in Tiong Bahru. I have been exploring the parks with Donna somewhat near the Tiong Bahru area recently. So we’ve discovered more dog-friendly eating places in that area thanks to friends on Instagram! (Find me @weliveinaflat!)

Guess which dog-friendly cafe in Tiong Bahru I am at!!

In this post, I’m featuring the two that I visited recently. But I will include more suggestions I’ve got from friends so you actually will have more options to consider than just two. ;)

Fresh Cooked Food on Subscription by The Grateful Dog | Dog Food Review

It’s time to shake up Donna dog’s diet with new cooked food recipes!

Fresh Cooked Food on Subscription by The Grateful Dog | Dog Food Review. Homemade dog food recipes online Singapore delivery

SPONSORED This review includes a giveaway for 1-week’s worth of cooked food from The Grateful Dog, so be sure to scroll down to the end to find it and enter!

Donna gets two meals a day. Dry food for breakfast and cooked food that is meat combined with a commercial pre-mix for dinner.

We feed dry food or kibble especially if we are rushing in the morning. But dry food is also highly processed, and like any other person who loves their dog, I still want Donna to be able to enjoy quality, nutritious food.

Halloween-themed Paw Fest 2017 at i12 Katong Mall

Since dogs are usually not allowed in air-conditioned malls, we grabbed the chance to visit i12 Katong Mall with Donna for the three days it was dog-friendly over the weekend of the Paw Fest 2017 event.

I actually almost didn’t go because it was not clear to me what program they have planned at what time on which day. And also because I already had a busy weekend.

However, I was tempted to go mainly after seeing photos posted by others. HAHA.

The following photos were the results.

We were there mainly for the opportunity to photograph Donna with the Halloween set-up at i12 Katong Mall’s Paw Fest.

Qanvast’s Pet Hacks for a Happier Dog starring Donna

I am a few months late sharing this Pet Hacks video. (OMG!)


Qanvast Hacks: Pet Hacks for a Happier Dog | More home reno & interior design inspiration at Qanvast.

Singapore Special mongrel dogs seem most often asked to act the role of the fierce, barking stray dog for commercials and TV shows, at least it seemed to me. So I was very happy that one media company has bucked the trend. And Donna was very lucky to be involved!

When Qanvast, an interior design and home renovation portal, asked if Donna can take part in a Pet Hacks video collaboration with them, my response was a no-brainer.

No, no, we didn’t mean Pet Hacks literally 😅😅😅

Of course!

What better way to show how adoptable and adaptable a Singapore Special dog in a flat can be than to show her in a video that talks about living in that environment?
