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

Wow, Scruffy...we've never been on a plane...was it scary??? The pet store must have been a bit overwhelming too. You're so lucky that your Mom came and swooped you up and took you home!!! I know what you mean bout these audio visual devices like computers and tv's making us feel neglected...perhaps we should give the cords a little nibble (after turning off the power, of course!!!)

Wiry hugs to you!!

Hi Scruffy's Mum,

Is it possible for you to share the petshop addresses? My mummy and daddy are now looking to add a Cairn brother to the family and there is none so far in my area. Appreciate if you can send me the contacts.

Sorry for leaving this comment as it is the only way I can contact you. BTW, both you and Toto are very handsome doggies...Yeay to us Cairn terrors...

Lotsa Woofs,

My Mummy says to tell you I came from Ericsson Pet Farm in Pasir Ris, Singapore. But us Cairns are not very common so you'll have to let them know and get them to contact you when there are some.

That's a nice story, Scruffy, and I like your picture, too. I bet you mom is happy that she changed her mind about fur kids.

Koobuss Kisses,
