I don’t need to tell you that Japan is a favourite travel destination for many. The country is beautiful and safe, even for single female travellers.
And if you have a dog or cat, it’s actually pretty fun to shop or even just window shop through the stores selling pet-related goods. I recently returned from a short trip to Kyoto, Nara and Osaka.
In this post, I’m sharing with you some of the Kyoto and Osaka pet shops and cat and dog products I saw in Japan.
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
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.
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! 🤓🤓🤓
Halloween is coming! So I thought it’ll be a great time to write about a horrifying topic…
… 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!
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…
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
