BbpHir3 > haa, 1 of my dog also encounter half way just lay on the road not wanting to move. But we are in the middle of the traffice, so have to grab her and run ... haa..
but becos their body weight is heavy and their small legs cannot tahan the weight, so in the end, her 4 legs swell .. jialat ..
my 4 four dogs seldom play together, so they won't get tired. unless i bring them to west coast park. than sure tired off as they can run freely.
Rocky was lyk that too.. but i "patiently + frustratedly" trained him.. lol... somehow or rather, he only listens when there's not much distraction.. but once there's something that he's interested in, he dont "react" as well~~
i cant bring Rocky to events/ dog runs/ beach, cuz he's not a dog-dog.. he's a human-dog.. i'll end up with a super crazy/ barking/ almost biting doggy if i bring him... i can only bring Cookie.. he more quiet type, but ultimate friendly also.. hahaha.. he can walk under 2 huskies n keep sniffing them, while the 2 huskies play lyk crazy.. that time i scared he kena step... cuz he's lyk soooo small....
thanks bphir, must really train the dog before she gets too set in her ways...
my 2 too pampered liaoz... so wun listen~~
both best at acting cute n innocent to "siam" punishment~~
hahahah nice to read all the dog stories.My friend thinking of getting a dog but dont know where all the dog shops are.Anyone know which area has many dogs shops like a stretch or smth?Heard that holland very have a lot of dog shops.True?
you might wanna get your friend to adopt?
Rocky was picked up on the streets (posters and stuff was put up.. but no one came forward to claim..)
Cookie was adopted from a pet shop.. cuz he was abandon over there..
some pet forums have dogs for adoption also...
pls tell your friend that a dog is a son/daughter for life.. not to get on impulse..
o.. and dogs for adoptions could be pure breeds too..
if need resources, can always PM me~~
Oh ok thks sure.I think she wanna visit pet shops to see which breed she like then go adopt she was thinking of adopting from SPCA.Any breed of dogs that dont grow to big at full size cos live in HDB cannot have big dogs.
agree with domique and bbbhir!
i bought my first puppy from a horrible shop and it died within a week!!! Had a very long tussle with pet shop, but didn't manage to recoup the med fees spent on puppy! Heart was broken and wallet was emptied!
do check up the list of approved doggies from the ava website. the website will also give you tips on how to see if puppy is healthy etc.
adoption is better! or if your friend wants a pedigree, ask him/ her to check up reputable breeders instead. When pet shops say that they have pedigrees, they are lying cos no reputable and responsible breeder will ever sell to a pet shop!!!
but must got vet certified say is the illness started from/ before arriving at the pet shop..
that's why always always bring pup/ dog to vet 1st thing (even before you reach home).. left the "collect doggie place", next stop straight to a REPUTABLE (not mt pleasant~~ i anti them~~) clinic to check the dog inside out..
Oh my bad bad shop.So sad.
Ok thks all for the advice will tell these to my friend.Hope she loves her dog and will never abandon it.
I like dogs but prefer kids So in the end did not get any dogs at home.Besides, my mum doesn't allow and doesn't like dogs to pee and poo everywhere and go everywhere on the sofa and stuff cos you know their fur drop.Yeah sadly,gave up my idea of getting a dog.
dogs can be toilet/ paper/ outside trained.. toilet trained meaning Poo and pee in toilet.. Paper trained means poo and pee on paper.. and outside trained means poo and pee when out for walks.. and the fur dropping part.. there are some breeds that have less shedding probs.. my dogs are allowed on sofas, beds etc.. but i dont c their fur sticking there~~~~ furthermore you can teach them whr's out of bound also.. my dogs never go into my grandparents room.. unless being called in..
sorry to be rude.. but i cant stand ppl hu misunderstand dogs before even trying to understand them... (my mother in law is this kinda ppl..)
my pet shops was one of those shops that make you sign a contract!!!
actually, should avoid such shops because puppy diseases can incubate for up to week, and the symptoms won't show when they are in a pet shop, so it's not fair to us.
and that shop sold us the puppy at a pedigree price but till now, more than one year later, still no cert...
if die die want to buy from pet shops, go to ava website and look for those grade 'a'. mine was 'b' so i thought okay, but turned out that this shop got a lot of bad press in the papers and online.
anyway, that stupid shop main income is from regulars liaoz... we all go boycott that shop!! yay!!
There are many pet shop owners out there just to earn $$. There is one petshop i boycott near my place too - they just sell puppies to those people they know sure give up the puppies or not ready yet people - such as small children pestering parents to buy them a pup. BF buy for GF.... etc....
We need more pple like you BbHir3!
Anyway folks, just updated my Porky's album into Our Photo Book... .. ..
Drop by and see when free.....
PS-pm me the store name too!
whenever my baby cries, be it daytime or nightime, my 3.5yrs old female chihuahua will rush into my room & sit in front of the sarong where baby is sleeping. my hubby said she's like baby's mum, more anxious than me while im still snoring away !
whever im feeding baby at sofa, my dog will sit next to me. sometimes i tink she's lonely cos before baby arrived, all my attention goes to her & a chihuahua is very sticky to its owner.
