Our report card for 2015: Myers and I have a great improvement from the 1st to the fifth speedstake trial in 2015. Given a chance to her, she will nip me when I run beside her. This really happened during our first run back in Jul 2015. Now she knows that her job is to complete the course before getting any rewards. We have been progressed smoothly from day 1 till now. She is in the midst of learning weave and 2O2O. Hopefully, we can enrol for the jumping trial next year. We wont hurry to enrol any trials with weave and contact unless she has a solid foundation which is very important.
Today is a special and important day to our beloved country. Because of this, our pawrents got a day off. They just need 1 minute of their time to decide 0.01% of the future. So what about the remaining of 1439 mins, what are they going to do?
PICNIC PICNIC PICNIC
YES WE ARE GOING TO HAVE OUR VERY FIRST PICNIC.
We will have our first picnic with Mommy’s colleagues at Marina Barrage. This is not the first time been there but is our first time to have picnic at this crowded place.
“She is our Mommy’s colleague from Taiwan. Is she pretty? YES. I think so. Why do I say that? See my sticking out tongue. I get to eat some of her pan fried eggs from her home made taiwan sandwiches. IT IS YUMMY.” – BAILEYS
Mommy and Daddy had a hard time that day. I still remembered it was on a Monday, 3 August 2015. They had never carried that rotten feeling when travelling from home to vet. Even though it is indeed a small operation, so called sterilization, they felt very uncomfortable. For me, I didn’t know anything. I just followed them. Maybe my Mom was too comical. She almost cried out when she handed me over to Dr Lee. I guessed Dr Lee noticed that and that’s why she had given her 5 minutes extra to reconsider.
[Benefits of Steralization:
- Reduce the risk of certain types of cancer that can be terminal.
- Eliminate undesirable behaviours like spraying, marking and fighting (of course, this need to be trained too even after neutering).
- Not developing the uterine infection called, “Pyometra”, which occurs commonly among older, unspayed dogs and cats. Pyometra is a life threatening disease.
- Prevent unwanted breeding. ]
Final conclusion, Mommy had decided at 12pm .
According to the vet tech, I had awaken at 4pm and started to make some barking sound for awareness.
At 7 pm, I can be discharged. Before leaving the place, I had left a goodbye souvenir for the vet by marking at the entrance door.
Mommy brought me out on the day 7 walking from Robertson Quay to Clarke Quay with my buddy H.
And I took some individual shot.
And we ended our walk with healthy breakfast at one of the cafe (forget the name) at Robertson Quay which is a dog friendly place.
Today marks a special day for Myers and me. This is our first trial for speedstake and she has won 1st under the 16″ category plus she got a Q.The very first person to say MANY THANK YOU is the lady in this photo, our mentor Michelle Chan from Pup Pup ‘N’ Away. She is Myers’ teacher since she was 9 weeks old. We have never changed to other trainer before beause she is the best that I have ever met. And she is also our inspiration to join agility. (If you got the chance to see her shelties and her.) Despite my bad handling and slower ability in understanding my BM, she has never failed to help us and reply my whatsapp during the wee hours. You will never find such a person who is totally unrelated and willing to help you out of goodwill. If you got her help, you will understand me. SHE IS THE BEST.
The second person to say MANY THANK YOU is her Auntie E who is not in this photo but she has stayed throughout the whole trial with us. What can I say about her? She is like our left and right hand. In other words, she is a very important person. Without her, I won’t know much about their diets and exercise. She will tell you the consequence if something might happen. She is our nutrition cum gym consultant. Without her supplements and routine exercise, we wouldn’t make our journey here.
So they are my important person in my doggy life.
