I Feel Ignored!!!

I am bored. I am being ignored by everyone in the family. Why won't someone play with me?

Its not fair. My parents recently bought this monster of a TV and now everyone is crowding around the TV. Its just a TV. A piece of plastic and wires. I am alive and of flesh and blood. Play with me! Play with me! I am better than that piece of inanimate object.

Public Enemy No 1
I really don't see what the big deal is. Daddy ignores me. Kor Kor ignores me. Jie Jie ignores me. Even my Mummy ignores me. SULK! SULK!

I know I know, there's Toto. But he's just a silly puppy! Not a grown up like me!

Will someone please play with me?

My Big Adventure


This is Toto here today. My Second Kor Kor, Scruffy, says I should share with you my big adventure.

Like Kor Kor says it started Sunday morning. We saw the gate open and Kor Kor said let's go for an adventure so I followed him out. I knew this was wrong because the parents always scolded us for going out but my Kor Kor said it was OK. If not, they would have closed the gate. So I went.

We did come to a fork in the road and I told Kor Kor I didn't want to go anymore. I wanted to go home. Actually it was because I saw the big road in front and frankly I got a bit scared. He didn't want to go home so I told him I would turn back.

Unfortunately this where I went wrong. I went into the wrong fork in the road and wound up in a small lane. I walked a bit trying to find my scent so that I could follow it home. But I couldn't find it.

Then something very scary happened. I came to the gate of another house and there were 2 big German Shephard dogs there. They were really fierce. They scolded me and yelled at me. I was so scared I couldn't move. I almost peed!

They made such a racket that their hooman came out to see what was going on. The kind man took one look at my scared pathetic face and knew I was lost. I was really terrified by then you know. Lucky for me he checked my name tag which I also wear all the time and he called my Daddy. He was also kind enough to take me home as he only lived 5 minutes away.

I tell you I will never listen to that Kor Kor again. He got me into so much trouble. I knew I should never have gone outside by ourselves. He made everyone so upset and we got such a scolding after that. I swear I will never go outside again without permission.

Its really not my fault. It was all Kor Kor.

Scruff :

Toto is lying. He wanted to go out as much as me. He didn't have to follow me. Next time I will never take him anywhere.

The Great Escape

We really did it this time. Escaped again. This time Toto escaped too.

It all started mid-morning on Sunday. Toto and I just had our weekly (urgh!) bath and was running out to the garden to rub ourselves on the grass as usual. Lo and behold! Guess what! The gate is open!!! I think Kor Kor's tutor left it open when she left the house after tuition. Anway, I don't really care. Opportunity presents itself.

I was out of there. I ran and ran. Sniffing and poking my nose at all the interesting smells that Daddy won't let me sniff at when we went for our walkies. We came to a fork in the road and Toto decided that he wanted to turn left while I continued on. I can see the big main road in front where all the wheeled thingys are whizzing by. Excitement! Excitement! I charged on.

When I got to the big road, I decided I didn't really want to try and cross with all the wheeled thingys whizzing by so I walked along it. I came to the food centre. Oh my dog! All those smells and exciting things to explore. I feel like the great Indiana Jones off to adventures. Exploring and finding lost artifacts. Of course, I am more dashing than Harrison Ford.

By the by, I came to this place where all the wheeled thingys were parked. I was getting rather tired by then. I wanted to go home. But .... which way? I was in big trouble. I didn't know. Daddy never brought me here before. Where oh where should I go? I am beginning to feel the first signs of panic. I want my Mummy!

Oh! There's a lady there. I shall go ask her where I should go. Maybe she'll know.

Obviously my pathetic look must have worked. The lady patted me and kindly asked if I was lost. I must have looked lost. Please! Please! Tell me where my house is. The lady looked at my name tag which I always wear round my neck. Oh! I think this is your parent's phone number, she says. She makes a call. After that she started patting me and playing with me. By then I really was in no mood to play. I want my Mummy! Where is my Mummy?!

I looked across the park thing and I spy Jie Jie. Jie Jie come get me. I'm here. I struggled out of the kindly lady's arms and ran and ran to Jie Jie. Boy! Am I glad to see you! Take me home please.

Jie Jie wasn't amused. She scolded me and smacked me. (But gently. Not her usual big smack like when I attacked her shoes.) She went on and on about losing the way. Bad men taking me. Getting knocked down by the wheeled thingys. Come on Jie Jie. I'm a big dog now. I had the sense not to cross the road and not to follow bad men. Okay! Okay! So I wasn't sure how to get home but you came to get me didn't you.

To cut a long story short, I am now home. I have been chastised long and loud by everyone in the family. Including my usually soft Mummy. I spent the rest of the day sulking because of all the scoldings I got. Nothing happened to me right. I got home alright. So I don't see what all the big fuss is about. But just to make peace with everyone.

Please please please forgive me.

PS : Now what happened to Toto you ask. I will leave Toto to tell you about his adventures tomorrow. Mum says she had better do some work now. BTW he is home too.

The Mighty Scruff Returns

I am back! I am back! Finally!

My torture is over. I no longer have to put up with Jie Jie and Kor Kor. I no longer have to pretend to enjoy their antics. I don't have to entertain them anymore. And I no longer have to beg Jie Jie for her write my blog. She only did it a measly two times. Mummy and Daddy are HOME!

It was so exciting. I kissed and kissed Mummy and Daddy. I missed them sooooo much. Also of course, Mummy bought us loads of treats. So that was also good.

She got us some gravy that we can have with our kibble. Yum! Yum! I had some and my kibble never tasted so good. She also got us some fruit smoothies. Nice and cold. Especially after a nice long walkie with Daddy. (We finally went out after so long. Jie Jie and Kor Kor were too lazy to take us.)

I had heard about Petco from some of my friends and I asked Mummy to go see what it was like and she did. She told me it was this huge store just for pets and it had loads and loads of fun and good stuff. Daddy took a picture to show us what it was like.

And it even had a dog bar filled with yummy biscuits that you could buy by the pound. Shucks! Mummy didn't get us any. She said she had no more space in her suitcase.

And the reason she had no more space was ...... See below.

As usual she went beserk when it comes to clothes. Women! Yes! Yes! You guessed it. She got us more instruments of shame and torture - clothes. I guess I will have to humour her and wear the new clothes she got us. What do you think? Do I look smart?

Toto had a matching one with me too but his is blue. He didn't seem to mind wearing clothes.

I have to thank all my furfriends who have dropped by in hope that my Jie Jie was not too lazy to update my blog. I will be visiting all your blogs over the next few days and try to get caught up with all that has been happening. I feel so deprived because my lazy Jie Jie won't help me read your blogs either. But now my torture is over. Mummy is back and I can get back to blogging.

See ya'll soon.

Toto's Great Leap Forward!


Toto is my brother after all! Today, for the first time, he took his first jump onto higher ground!

You see, up till now, we'd all thought that Toto was not quite the athletic prowess that I am (obviously - no one is), and come to accept it. I mean, come on, I had that couch conquered within the first week of coming home.

Toto, he took months! Nevertheless, I'm so proud of him! He's on his way to becoming just like me, his big brother. And his obvious teacher. I must be such an inspiration. Maybe he'll conquer the parent's bed soon (though I think that's gonna take another couple of months to accomplish).
