Happy Barkday to ME~~~~

It's my barkday today! I am officially 5!! My M had wanted to cook me a special barkday dinner tonight of steak, but then she suddenly remembered that she's having her company's year end pawty tonight so she won't be home early.

Luckily, we had an advance celebration for me during christmas eve. Too bad she left her camera at Scuba's house so there are no pictures but she did take videos of everyone singing my barkday song.

Here's them singing the english version of the song.

I was so excited about the cake that I kept running around the table. Tommy was the only one who sat still and my M said it looked more like his barkday than mine.

My baby sister insisted that we have to sing the chinese version of the barkday song and insisted that the candle must be lighted but Tommy's baby brother kept blowing out the candle.

We finally managed to quickly sing the chinese version before anything untoward happen to the candle and we have to do everything all over again.

Even so, my baby sister still wanted everyone to sing the song AGAIN! Luckily my M stopped her in time or I'll never get to eat my cake.

I still have not had the time to take peektures with my barkday cum xmas presents yet. Hopefully my M will find the time to do so soon.

Drool Boy

Sorry for the lack of updates recently. Nothing's much been going on other than the usual routine, but the good news about December is, X'mas is coming and it's gonna be my barkday soon! My M says she'll make me a cake to share with my friends on x'mas eve. I wonder what will she make this time...

Anyway, just a short video my M took over the weekend to share with you guys. Since xmas is coming, I thought I'd better fit into the occasion.

Have a merry holiday!

Sunday morning routine

Every sunday morning is my shower day, unless my M is travelling. And every Sunday morning I will be forced to walk into the bathroom to be showered.... like this...

But the way, 'pom pom' is like the local baby slang for bath/ shower. Look how reluctant I look? But I'm a good boy, at least I walk into the shower myself (albeit slowly...)

Teeth Scaling

My M finally decided to send me for teeth scaling and I had it done last friday.

Here's the before of my dirty teeth. Actually I was pretty happy with it, I think it looks fine but my M thinks otherwise.

I was still feeling groggy when they picked me up from the vet and I couldn't walk straight. Even my baby sister was able to hold me back when usually I'll be the one pulling her along.

On the way back, we walked past a group of uncles chatting and when they saw the way I walked, they commented to each other "this is a very old dog. See, no strength already." My M had to correct them and said I was still under the effect of anaesthetic.

I was so groggy that I just went to lie down when I got home. My M thought it was funny that my muscles were so relaxed that my eyes were droopy and she said it's the first time I was sooooo mellow.

I'd like to put on record that I am VERY sad and upset that Aunty V and Aunty G is considering putting me on long term medication to keep me mellow. What's all this talk about personal space?? I poke them incessantly precisely because I LOVE them.

Of course, after all that work, I had to show off my pearly whites.

I must admit, they do look better now. So my M has just bought new toothpaste and is now on a mission to keep them clean by attempting to clean my teeth every night, with the help of my baby sister. (groans)

Here she is, trying to clean my teeth AGAIN whem my M has already done so.

And to think that I don't even get a treat after all those teeth abuse! M: That will sorta defeat the purpose of cleaning your teeth last thing at night, right?

My sister, the dentist

My sister recently declared I have a broken tooth. I think it's because I have gaps in between my teeth.

Anyway, my M will be bringing me for teeth scaling next week. Maybe I should do a before and after of my teeth to show you guys.

New Job!

I've just found a new job! My MM has just employed me in his car workshop and I'm supposed to be in charge of Sales and Security.

Strangely, my M, Aunty V and Aunty G were sniggering and saying I'm not suited for the job when they heard I am in Sales and Security. Well, I'm gonna prove them wrong!

First thing once I start work is to check out the area for suspicious characters.

Coast is clear!

Then check out the equipment to make sure they are in working condition.

Sometimes I guard the stairs to make sure no unauthorised person goes into the office.

My M also made sure I'm not sleeping on the job by checking the security camera in the office.

Not slee....

I'm awake! I'm awake! I'm guarding the door!

That's the security aspect of my job and boy is it tiring! Luckily, the sales part of the job is a breeze. I just have to sit in front of the shop and look cute to attract customers.

So, if any of your cars need servicing, come look for me! I need to hit my monthly sales target. Tell my MM that I introduced you when you call for appointment otherwise I won't get my extra cookies (and so that I make sure I won't call in sick that day).

We're located at 10 Kaki Bukit Road 2. Check my MM's website for the opening promotion!

Yummy Homemade Treats

My M bought a new kitchenaid last month and what better use for it than to make doggy treats for ME!

Gonna have treats... gonna have treats....

First, the ingredients....

1 cup rolled oats

1/3 cup butter or margerine

Mix 'em with 1 cup of hot chicken stock (made with real chicken!) and let sit for 10 min

The other stuff...

The recipe called for shredded cheddar cheese but my M forgot to buy it, so she substituted it with our leftover parmesan cheese.

Mix everything in with the roll oats soak and 1 egg

The recipe called for 3 cups of whole wheat flour but we ran out of it so my M used plain flour instead, adding it in one cup at a time using the dough hook attachment until a dough is formed.


Knead it a little until smooth and no longer sticky and roll it out.

Star shaped cookies!

Ready for the oven

Bake in preheated oven of about 165 degrees C for 35-45 min until golden brown. Then wait for it to cool before eating.

I wonder if my fanning tail will hasten the cooling process?

Is it cool enough now?

Quick! Take the required photos! I wanna eat!

Nom Nom Nom

And now I have freshly made home-naked cookies for breakfast! I *heart* my M!

Bubble Fun!

Just a video to share me and my baby sister having fun with bubbles!

Just to clarify why my M asked my baby sister if she knows what my name is, is because she keeps pronouncing my name as 'See'lios rather as Helios.

Funny smelling me

I think I smell kinda funny today. Every sunday is bathing day but today, instead of using my usual shampoo, my M started taking out sachets of shampoo samples that she got from the last ASD Tea Pawty goodie bag.

But apparently these sachets were made more for small dogs, as 1 packet is not enough to shampoo my whole body. So I ended up with different flavors on my back, sides and head.

What's that smell on me?

I think sample makers should give us bigger sachets, at least enough for one wash for a big dog like me. Now all I can do is hope that the smell will fade away.

Maybe if I roll enough in grass, I'll smell less funny?

Kitty Cats

It seems that the stray cats near my area are not afraid of me anymore....

They still laze around although I try to 'stare' them out.

Non-swimming beach trip

Just to share with you some peektures my M took of me and my baby sister on our recent trip to the beach. Unfortunately, I wasn't allowed to go swim coz my M says the water doesn't look that clean and also she did not bring any of my shower stuff.

But I still like sitting down and enjoying the sea breeze.

We found a sand shell thingy that someone made and left it there. My M said it's giant Helios poop.

Poop and me?

Now I look like a camel with that poopy... I mean shelly thing behind me.

Although I didn't get to swim, both of us enjoyed the day very much.

Dozing off in car

Remember my MM used to drive a 7-seater and they converted the whole backspace for me?

Well, my MM changed back to a sedan car so I lost my backspace. Now I have to squeeze in front at my M's feet. I can't even catch a proper sleep sitting up now.

Oh well, at least I get to sit very, very close to my favourite person in the world. :)

Me, cake?

How time flies! My baby sister just had her 3rd birthday pawty. And her Godma, who also happens to be Aunty G (Jack and Joey's owner), very generously sponsored her birthday cake and I am proud to say that I am the main feature of the cake.

Look, that dog is a fondant model of me! Doesn't it look like me? I think i look more stately but the humans all said the the baker captured my silliness very well.

Stately me

That's my baby sister admiring me... I mean her cake.

My M says she will save the fondant me since the baker said it can be kept for months in a cool, airtight place. So if it survives til December, she'll recycle it on my barkday cake.

I don't know if that's a good idea or not....

K9 Cafe

Just two weeks ago, my MM took all of us to the K9 cafe for brunch. Or rather, they had brunch and I had the scraps. Something is wrong here. If it's a canine (K9) cafe, why are THEY getting food and I'm getting scraps? Isn't the cafe meant for me?

Anyway, I almost fell asleep waiting for the food to arrive. At least the humans had ice cream float while they waited.


I tried to check out the progress in the kitchen but the door was closed.


Finally the food arrived but I had to wait for my baby sister to start eating first.

Hurry up!

And of course she had to tempt me...

This is pepperoni...

As if I didn't know that's pepperoni, and anyway, I don't care what that is!

Just feed me already!

Well, in the end, I did manage to get a few pieces of pizza, and fries.

Contented tummies

I also made some new friends...

BC: What's this thing on you?

BC: Erm, you do know there's something on your back?
Me: Yeah... that's my baby sister.

Maybe I can try to get more food the next time we go back.

ASD Tea Pawty

On saturday, my M attended the Action for Singapore Dogs (ASD) Tea Party held at Klapsons hotel. It's a boutique hotel in Singapore and it was a rare chance for me to actually step into a hotel. Or maybe not, coz we weren't allowed into the main lobby area, but took a lift direct to the open bar area on the top floor. But at least I managed to take a photo with the hotel signage.

The event is to raise fund for Treasures, a 3 legged dog involved in a hit and run accident.

I was supposed to hitch a ride with Jack & Joey but Aunty G was caught in a bad traffic jam so we came on our own. But I kept looking out at the stairs to see when they will arrive.

I was looking at the stairs, not the chef....

I was really looking at the stairs, and I;m NOT salivating!!

I finally got to meet Homer as well. But I didn't really like him at first coz he's got bigger balls.... I mean, paws than me. And I don't really like big strange intact male dogs. But he was too busy checking out 2 bootiful labs sitting next to us.

Homer sniffing lab butt

I said bootiful coz I was attracted to them too.

Me sniffing lab butt

The bootiful labs... they were actually meant to serve as guide dogs but they failed their tests and so were adopted by this family.

Save us from the butt sniffers please!

Well, in the end I got used to homer and we even managed to take a few photos together, but I don't have the pictures to show you coz it was Homer's mum who took the photos.

There were a few contests, Homer won the largest dog contest and I won the best coat for long coat contest.

And here's me with my cookie 'medal'.

Posing proudly with my best coat

Strangely, a lot of humans took photos of me wearing my medal and even more strangely, a lot of dogs were looking at me hungrily when I was wearing my cookie medal.

I wonder why....

It was an fun day and I got loads of goodies in the goodie bag. I hope we get to go to another one soon!

Raw Paw

My paw is itching very badly right now. My M noticed last night that I kept licking my paw and on closer inspection, was shocked to see that I've licked my paw so vigorously that the fur is gone and now it's just a raw patch.

My MM said I must have caught the licking paws bug from Scuba, coz Scuba LOVES chewing/ licking his paws.

Me with my raw paw

I think some naughty insect bit me during one of my walkies coz my M noticed a small bump on my paw.

Raw Paw

The bad thing is, once she noticed it, she stopped me from licking my itchy paw. I tried to disobey her but got my head knuckled instead. So she put some medication on me and made me wear one of my baby sister's old bootie so that I won't be able to lick it during the night.

And of all the bootie she took, she had to choose a white one... with lace!

What an insult. As you can see, I wasn't too happy about that but to save my head from being further knuckled, I had to swallow that insult.

disgruntled me

My M said she might have to start digging for my big brother herbie's lampshade from the storeroom. I don't know what's worse, lacy bootie or lampshade.
