One Week Anniversary

It is exactly one week since Toto came home. I shall let him have my blog space today for him to tell you how he fared in the last week. (To Toto : Make sure you say only good things!)


Toto :
Hi I'm Toto. It has been a confusing but very good week for me. I have been learning a great deal from my parents as well as my big brother, Scruffy.

Talking about big brothers, I am in a Chinese family. According to Chinese customs I must call my brothers that are older than me Kor Kor (It means big brother). Since I now have 2 big brothers I have to call my hooman brother, First Kor Kor and Scruffy, Second Kor Kor. I know its a bit of a mouthful but my Second Kor Kor insists on it. He says it is disrespectful otherwise.

Let me tell you a bit about how I came to my current family. I was in a pet place before this. I used to be kept in an enclosure with my birth brother and another Westie. They were bigger than me in size and sometimes they bully me. One day, my Mum and Dad came to the pet place. They were looking for a brother or sister for Second Kor Kor.

Mum spied me in the enclosure and asked the pet place person to bring me and my birth brother out for her to look at. After much hmmming and hawing from Mum and Dad, Mum decided that I should be the one. I am so happy that she chose me.

After doing all the paperwork, my parents brought me home. I was a bit frightened on the way back as I had never been in a car before this. Mum held onto me tightly and spoke to me gently and I wasn't so scared after a while.

When we got home, I met Second Kor Kor for the first time. At first, he was a bit upset. After all until now he has been an Only dog in the family. We talked about it a bit and I promised to listen to him and respect him. Now we play with each other everyday and he teaches me loads of things. I love my Second Kor Kor. He is a good Kor Kor.

Scruffy :
I love you too Toto!
