Week 7 – One more week to home!

One more week to go!! I’m very enthusiastic and eager to go to my new home in another week time.

7 Weeks (29.03.13) cToday, Mummy and Daddy brought a jie jie here to visit me. She’s Isabel jie jie. 

7 Weeks (29.03.13) aShe’s the big sister in the house.

7 Weeks (29.03.13) bMummy wanted to take as many photos as possible so that she can keep track of my growing stages. She wanted to be involved in every bits and pieces of my life.

7 Weeks (29.03.13) dShe also wanted to know how far and how big have I grown up to. As you can see, I’m just a furball.

The SNAPPY ONE

I love to jump.
I love to nip legs.
I love to chase.
I love to bite.
I love to jump on bed.

But all these, Mummy just don’t like. WHY? This is ME!

Wow!  What is Mummy doing? Is she playing with me? I can see her hand swinging in front of me.

– SNAP! SNAP! SNAP! –

Again.

– SNAP! SNAP! SNAP! –

Why Mummy’s face is so black? Is she angry with me? Does I do anything wrong?

– SNAP! SNAP! SNAP! –

Hmmmm… There’s something on the floor. Yummy!!  It’s treats. A!! Mummy is throwing treats on the floor while saying OFF. OK. Once I heard OFF, I will go down the bed and got the treats.

The FIRST RAW

The most easiest to start off is CHICKEN. It is the most convenience meat to buy from supermarket. But Mummy didn’t buy the whole chicken. She just bought chicken breast and chicken wings.

YUMMY!  YUMMY! YUMMY!

I’m too skinny during that time so Mummy said she need to pump me up by giving me 5% of the ideal adult weight (etc. 5% of 10kg = 500g per day). That’s sound alot but it’s OK because I’m still growing. I love RAW.  She will split it to 2 meals; breakfast and dinner.

16 Weeks (17.03.13) 14

See!  I didn’t bluff you. Super Duper Skinny.

During that time, the freezer storage was super limited and Mummy could only buy 4 days supplies. Very tedious and hectic. So Daddy and Mummy decided to buy a stand alone fridge, just for my food. YIPEE!!

RAW vs KIBBLES

I used to eat grain free kibbles, first with Orijen Puppy then changed to Merrick. Mummy said I don’t need any grain and I do not have the digestive system to cope with grains and it might lead me to skin problem. Mummy don’t just pick any brands of kibbles from the shelf. She would definitely look at the ingredients in it and google whether there was any recalls understand the same organization. Since then, Mummy said I had a bad breath, smelly pee and poop, big poop and doggie smell.

Am I going to eat kibbles for the rest of my life? Will you eat biscuits only throughout your entire life? No WAY!

The next best thing is home made meal. But Mummy don’t really cook and don’t know which benefit me.

FINALLY she heard of RAW from one of her shelties’ owner, Aunty Lynn. So Mummy gonna check it out. Aunty Lynn referred her to Aunty Michelle who is an expert in this area. Among all diets, RAW IS THE BEST NUTRIENTS THEY HAVE EVER HAD. That’s how my RAW started.

Why RAW?

It is to feed the way mother nature intended.

It improves skin and coat, build stronger immune system, leaner body mass, improve stool volume, no more doggy odour, improve teeth, breath and oral health, better weight control, prevent health issues in future and many more.

Different animals different parts provide different nutrients so we don’t really need so many supplements.

How much?

It is based on 2% to 3% of the ideal adult weight because I’m still a puppy. If not, it should be based on current ideal weight. Every dog is different so this is just a starting point.

It consisted of 80% Meat, 10% Bone and 10% Organ (5% Liver and 5% other organ meat).

How do I start?

Just start eating RAW straight and do not need to do any transition of food. RAW and kibbles cannot mix together as it will harm to my digestive system.

It’s no secret – raw is best.

Week 3 – The CHOICE

Yipee!! Mummy got a mail from Uncle Hubert from Hubsville. This means our fate to be together will be closer.

By the way, I’m abit disappointed as Mummy actually wanted a sable white female pup. But our kind Uncle Hubert offered me to her that if she is not interested in dog showing, why not considered the Colour-Headed White (CHW). To their ignorance, they do not know what is CHWs and thought that I will be different from other sable white shelties in terms of health.

What do you mean by I’m a CHW? It is primarily white dog with a coloured head of any of the allowed colours and this can happen only when both parents have white factoring. There is also another similar colour which have more whites on them that is the Double Merle White which can only happen when two merles are bred together. But it should not be confused with the CHWs. Even though both of them have more whites, the genetics are different. CHWs are perfectly normal, unlike double merles which most likely will have vision and hearing problems.

After knowing more about me, they have reconsidered it and said why not.

And Daddy loves me being unique.

3 Weeks (07.03.13) b 3 Weeks (07.03.13)This is me.

Do you know why Mummy named me “Myers”?

Because other than her most favourite drink “Baileys”, Myers’s Rum is also her top 3 in her drinking list. Alcoholic? Don’t tell Mummy I said that. She’s just love those drinks. That’s it.
