Harlow Doggie.....

This is the latest addition to our home.....
His name is doggie....
*chuckles* So Original hor!!
Mummy found him loitering outside our home on
02nd August (Wed)
after getting home from Auntie Judy's place (babies'playdate)....
All our neighbours shut their door on him....
So mummy took him in, fed him....
house him waiting for the owner to put up a "missing dog" notice
But nobody did after so many days...
So mummy concluded that he was abandoned...
He has been a lovable boy....
Except that he pee and poo and mark everywhere in the house!!
Mummy is still trying hard to paper train him....
Hopefully he learns.....
Doggie has also started to take this place as his home as he barks at intruders....
(Finally, someone to put off those nasty door to door salesman)
He has also accepted mummy as his owner...
as he looked back to make sure mummy was still around
when we bring him for a walk...
We brought doggie to a vet today....
We have concluded that....
(1) He is not a pure breed....
We suspect that he is a Miniture Pinscher and Jack Russell mix...
(2) He is about 2-5 years of age....
(3) He has got K9 cough....
he might have this problem for the rest of his life...
as the vet say it is quite normal for older dogs....
He has got medication for that already....
(4) He has ONLY one testicle!!
The vet say the other one forgot to pop outta his skin....
and he will need surgery....
as the testicle under the skin may result to cancer....
Poor doggie... Can you imagine just having only ONE testicle?!?
I dunno about dogs, but if you were a human
you'll definitely be the laughing stock of the whole wide world!!
At this moment, the world doesn't matter to him aymore....
he just need our love, care, cuddle and a nice warm home....

**Special thanks to Auntie Judy, for being so BRAVE to handle doggie in the beginning....
giving mummy the confidence that doggie has got good temperament**

Dumbo (LOL!!) is so sweet. Esp when he kept turning back to make sure you still around when we bring him to the vet's. I am sure he will be paper-trained soon.

It's so heartening to read about how both of you care for this lost dog. It's his lucky day! Kind of you to bring him to a vet and I am sure he appreciates it and hence his turning back to look at you cos he's afraid that he would be dumped again.

See you on the next playdate :-)

Yos Irene, Let u know that most doggie with two testicle will be "pamper" cos they can be a show dog to win his owner proud. But those doggies that has ONLY 1 testicle, he can only be a pet dog. Cos when u go into a show, only with 2 LPs then u r qualify to be in a dog show.(This is wat i heard from my friend)But this dog is cute leh. But i think if u really wan to keep him, u might need to bring him to register or something like that.(Need to have a "micro-chip" or something like that in his body). Pls check it out properly ok? See wat u need to do if u would like to keep it.
Cheers,
Huixin

huixin: since he only got 1 LP, so better off being pet dog... he is a sweet dog, but now he refused to take his medication!! Big headache for me!!
