Beautiful?

The one on the left is the original design. The right one.. er.. after she dropped it onto the floor, ahh I picked it up with my mouth… and I put it inside my mouth and tried to chew it.

The lilac silky rose came out. *sheepish*

What you are eating?

Posted in Animals, Food on 25 March 2007 by iamrainbow

The news broke out about a particular pet food was being recalled but there was no mention of the company in the newspaper that my Big Sista read.

Online, ah, the wonders of internet, she found out that it was Menu Food. She immediately double checked my food brand – it wasn’t Menu Food. 🙂

Sigh… in relief.

Neh, you can read more about it here Pet food recall: Menu Foods updates recall web site (includes FAQ)

Protect the dogs!! They sniff pirated CDs as their career. I salute them!

A Dog’s Plea

Posted in Animals on 21 March 2007 by iamrainbow

This poem was forwarded to Big Sista via ArcaMax’s newsletter when a girl’s dog died. Sigh.. So touching. 😦

Treat me kindly, my beloved friend, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me.

Do not break my spirit with a stick, for though I might lick your hand between blows, your patience and understanding will more quickly teach me the things you would have me learn.

Speak to me often, for your voice is the world’s sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail when the sound of your footstep falls upon my waiting ear.

Please take me inside when it is cold and wet, for I am a domesticated animal, no longer accustomed to bitter elements. I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth.

Keep my pan filled with fresh water, for I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst.

Feed me clean food that I might stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side and stand ready, willing and able to protect you with my life, should your life be in danger.

And, my friend, when I am very old, and I no longer enjoy good health, hearing and sight, do not make heroic efforts to keep me going. I am not having any fun.

Please see that my trusting life is taken gently. I shall leave this Earth knowing with the last breath I draw that my fate was always safest in your hands.

Greenies

Posted in Animals, Food on 18 March 2007 by iamrainbow

Big Sista saw these pack of Greenies at PetsMore to clean my teeth and bought a pack after much consideration: to buy the big pack or small pack. In the end, she bought a 4 Regular Greenies (small pack) for testing first, just in case I didn’t eat these.

I had neva eaten such taste before! It looked dark green but unlike the grass at the back where Big Sista always take me for walks.


Greenies

See the Greenies logo is 1 cute dog. But not as cute as me 😉

It’s hard to bite! Luv it! Of course, I always lick it first, then bite it.

After I had finished the small pack, Big Sista bought the large pack. 😀

Oh yeah, shit is also in green colour.

Pebbles

Posted in Animals, Behaviour, Family, Health, Hygiene on 15 March 2007 by iamrainbow

2 of my neighbours – young girls in kindergarten or primary school – had shrieked and shouted angrily, “LESSIE!”

What had I done to them? Nothing.

So my Big Sista came out and hands akimbo, she asked them, “Mengapa?”

They ran back inside their home.

Then suddenly, a very small pebble flew over to my home.

Of course I bit it and put it in my mouth. It felt cool and hard. Good 🙂

Then Big Sista came out. She must have sharper ears than I thought. She heard the pebble dropped to our home!

She grabbed my muzzle and said firmly, “OPEN.”

I tried to keep my jaw closed but she pried it open.

Then she pulled the pebble out and threw it into the waste bin inside her home, where I was forbidden to enter. Sigh.. so much for my new toy.

She smacked my muzzle lightly and said, “NO.”

Then she went back inside.

After sometime, another pebble flew over and I put it into my mouth again. Could eat?

Again, Big Sista came and pried it out of my mouth. She threw the pebble back to neighbour and it hit the bigger girl’s butt. Hahah.

Then, she called the younger girl’s name but they went back inside home, hiding and giggling.

Later, she saw them sitting at the front porch and asked them, “Tadi awak buang batu?”

The bigger girl covered her face with a small handkerchief and tipped her head back. The younger girl smiled mischieviously, guilty but she kept quiet. The adult was reading, sitting in front of them.

We had gotten papers, plastics and food thrown over. This made my Big Sista angry at their cruelty and selfishness. Yes, I was am very noisy at night and day – I am only protecting my home and family from strangers who put papers inside, dogs passing by and dangerous men. Why, when there were robbers inside their home, I had barked so loud and then they woke up and the robbers left. I didn’t even get any thanks. Hmph!

“Jangan buang batu sini lagi. Nanti anjing saya,” she struggled to find the word, which she doubted the kids would understand, “tercekik. Kalau awak buang lagi…” My Big Sista warned them.

Then the adult realized my Big Sista was talking to the kids and she asked, “What?”

Big Sista explained, “Just now they were throwing small pebbles over to my dog.”

“WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?! CRAZY AR?!” The adult scolded the kids.

We didn’t get any pebbles anymore. This wasn’t the first time things were thrown over.

Are You More Cat or Dog?

Posted in Animals, Behaviour on 15 March 2007 by iamrainbow

You Are: 60% Dog, 40% Cat


You are a nice blend of cat and dog.
You’re playful but not too needy. And you’re friendly but careful.And while you have your moody moments, you’re too happy to stay upset for long.

Are You More Cat or Dog?

LOL. I’m glad my behaviour is more doggie than cat :p After all, cats are lazy.. and not friendly. Why, I wag my (very short) tail at them, they either run or stay aloof. Hmph..

If possible, every minute should be about playing.
