Know and Learn

I joined an informal meeting with MS (miniature schnauzer) owners. A Singaporean MS expert did a training on the proper grooming of an MS. There are limited MS groomers here.

The props are alive, MS pets needing a great haircut, heheh.

It's fun to meet other pet lovers, on-line or even in person, what more if you get to be with dog lovers who also have dogs of the same breed you have. Terrific!

You get to learn from them and share what you know as well. The exchange of both experiences and knowledge is truly precious.

Know, learn and share!

They're Back

You know what's amazing about these dogs, especially Jasper? He can detect our car when it's approaching, even if it's still far at the corner of the street.

He is always excited to see us come home. But ooh, so noisy, if only he could tone down his barking a little, but what joy to see his tail wag-to-death, heheh.

Do you know that one of the greatest fear of a dog is the thought of his owner not coming back for him?

This is why they get so anxious when left alone for a long period of time. Possibly, this is the reason why Joaqui chews on his paws at times. Hmmp.

Get That Ball

Look at him dive for that blue ball.

This canine loses all senses when he encounters a ball, of any size.

I am careful that he doesn't swallow any of his toys, in part or in whole, that would really really be bad for Joaqui.

I don't give toys that are too small or those that can easily be broken into pieces. For his teddy bears, I take of the button eyes. Final advise, do watch them at play with these things just to make sure they do not do anything harmful to themselves because of the toy.

Vomiting is a sign that they might have swallowed something (like the cotton or the threads of the stuff toy or a big chunk of their chewable bones).
