Mid-Autumn Festival

My sincere apologies for not blogging about this earlier but frankly I have been really busy. Busy eating that is.

Not sure if my furfriends are aware of this but they make mooncakes for furkids! See what the hoomans have we also have. My Mummy bought them from the doggie bakery for us.

The one on the left is mine and the right is Mummy's

Mummy's mooncake is made from lotus seed paste with 2 (she's a bit greedy) salted egg yolks inside. Mine is made from red bean paste and no salted egg yolks. Mummy says its not good for me to eat salted eggs. It will ruin my beautiful coat of hair.

Mine is still on the left and Mummy's (with her double egg yolk) is on the right

Mummy tells me that there is actually a story behind these mooncakes. Many many moons (pun fully intended) ago there was actually no such thing like mooncakes. But less many moons ago there was a group of people who were plotting a revolution in far off China. This revolution was to take place on mid-autumn night.

Now this was all well and good but if you can't talk to all the other revolutionaries to plan this, its not going to happen. So someone came up with this bright idea.

Eureka! Let's make these mooncakes. They are sticky inside so let's cut them open and stick our secret messages in them. We can then pass mooncakes/messages and the Emperor and his bad soldiers won't know how we tell each other when to revolt and how.

I thought this was rather clever. Its better than carrier pigeons because after getting message you can actually eat the mooncakes! What a bonus.

Hope all of you enjoyed the Mid-Autumn festival. I sure did. Yum! Yum! Mid-autumn should come around more than once a year.

I'm So Excited

Guess what! I have been selected to be the Cool Dogsite Of The Day on 20 September! I always knew I was cool. Snigger! Snigger!

Anyway back to more serious things. From my last posting, I asked all my friends to tell me what their obsessions are. I have to admit, furkids are really quite creative in their obsessions. And of course Toto's obsession is not confined to him alone. Quite a lot of my friends have the same obsession. It would appear that it is the most popular obsession.

Not missing out are tissues, towels and blankets. Most creative I have to admit is this obsession with bras! And somedog did like the underarm of used stinky T-shirts though. Hmmmm! Maybe I should try it someday.

I am sure you must all be wondering what my obession is. Its of course shoes! Remember my Jie Jie's new shoes. That's me!

Toto's Obsession

I have to tell you this. Toto has a really disgusting obsession! He is obsessed with stinky, smelly pooey socks. The stinkier the better. He only grabs all the used socks. He leaves the clean ones alone. Look at him! Isn't he disgusting!!!

Toto with Kor Kor's stinky socks

Tell me all about your obsessions.

My First Couple Of Days

I have been tagged by Precious to tell all about my first day/night. So here goes.

I need to give you a bit of background first. I came to sunny Singapore from Down Under. I had to sit in an aeroplane for hours before I got here and was sent to a pet shop. I had only been at the pet shop for a day when this lady spied me in my cage. Unbeknownst to me, she is to be my Mummy.

To be honest with you, my Mummy didn't want me or rather a furkid to begin with. First Jie Jie had gone to Heaven not too long ago and she wasn't sure that she wanted to be a Mummy again. Daddy was the one who insisted that she at least looked at furkids.

Anyway to cut a long story short, she spied me at the pet shop. She didn't even want to hold me at first but the kind Uncle at the pet shop picked me up and put me in her arms. Once in her arms I looked up at her, gave her one of my killer appealing looks and I'm glad to say I had her! Hee! Hee!

But I still couldn't go home yet. I had to stay another night at the pet shop while they dolled me up for the trip home. So bright and early the next day, Mummy came and brought me home.

When we got home, I was a bit bewildered and overcome. First there were my Kor Kor and Jie Jie to get to know. Then there was my new home to find my way around. Naturally as I didn't know any better then, I pooped and peed all over the house and it drove Mummy crazy. Luckily she was still in a mothering mood as I had only just come home and didn't scold me too much. Of course, I have learnt since.

That night I was getting a bit worried. I never had to sleep by myself until I was at the pet shop and I didn't like it. I admit it, I'm a bit cowardly in this area. I prayed and prayed hard that I didn't have to do that. Thank doGness Mummy swooped me up in her arms and brought me upstairs to her room to sleep. And I have been there ever since.

That about sums up my first couple of days with my family. Uneventful but I'm glad Mummy changed her mind about furkids.

Looking handsome even at the tender age of 4 months

The Life Of A Neglected Pup

With that stupid TV in the house I am really getting neglected. Now they are watching DVDs too. I had to sit through all the Harry Potter movies with my Jie Jie!!! Yawn!

BTW I tried some of your advice and I am afraid that snatching the remote only got Daddy livid! I had never seen him so upset with me, I was terrified. He chased after me and I ran and ran for the safety of my kennel.

Daddy I won't do it again, I promise!
To stave off boredom, I decided that it would be a good time to turn one of my toys into a has been. See the results of my handiwork.



Psst! My Mummy had to use Photoshop to put back the part I chewed off. Ha! Ha! Wish we could reverse time that easily. I would erase that stupid TV out of our lifes!
