Our Last Goodbye to Milo Border Collie at Tengoku Pet Cremation

Sometimes, death comes unexpectedly. And amidst the grief, the family still has to find out what to do or prepare for a pet cremation. I hope we all have friends to help and guide us along the way if and when that happens. #touchwood

But I’m recording this as a reference for those who need.

On Monday, a dog named Milo passed away. Milo belonged to a friend of ours. So we went and saw him off at the Pet Cremation Service – Tengoku.

Dog Adoption Series: Tiger Looi the “Angry” Mongrel

The Dog Adoption Series is a series of interviews with Singapore mongrel dog owners, to highlight the joys and the issues that they face when they adopt a mongrel dog. 


Tiger Looi the “Angry” Mongrel

I first discovered Tiger Looi on Facebook when I saw her “Angry” videos. I was an instant fan. And I am not the only one.

Tiger’s facebook page has more than 10,000 likes! (As of 26 Feb 2017) So I’m pretty sure I wasn’t the only one who found it entertaining watching her interactions with her mom, Siewyuen.

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

Singapore dog hdb-approved mongrel aka Singapore special

Singapore Dog Donna is officially HDB-Approved :D

We adopted Donna from Gentle Paws and Friends way before we heard of the Adore program that gets mongrel dogs HDB-approved. We weren’t looking specifically for a mongrel at the time but we didn’t see an HDB (Housing Development Board)-approved small breed dog that we wanted to adopt at the SPCA.

An early picture of Donna when we first adopted her. She was fatter with the same friendly smile. :P

We eventually met Donna and adopted her. It took some time and difficulty, but we finally have got her HDB-approved and a legal companion pet in the flat!

Happy 7th Birthday, Donna!

I typically don’t interact with many people or dogs at bigger dog parties. With too many dogs, it can get chaotic so I keep Donna on the lead in such cases.

And in the case of parties I’m organising, I can get too preoccupied with details and forget about talking to people. I’m sure that may be the case for some of you too, since I myself have attended parties where I didn’t converse much with the host besides, “Hi”, “This is the present for XYZ” and “Bye!”. :P

This year, it seemed a better idea to keep Donna’s birthday celebrations small and informal.

What is in the DNA of your mongrel dog???

the mutt bookMongrel dogs are interesting because you never know what could be in their DNA. You could try to guess by how they look.

For fun, I borrowed The Mutt Book. It provides a simplistic way of decoding your dog’s heritage by helping you identify the type of ears, head shapes, body shapes, types of coat,  tail, paws and legs, etc. And where they could have come from. For greater accuracy, I also considered trying out a DNA test on Donna. But I haven’t yet. Should I?
