Now I know

I read that pets help reduce stress of their owners. This made me reflect abit.
Yup. I think that statement is not made for nothing. Cai cai's admittance into my family has definitely brought alot more joy in the house.

Though still a young pup, he knows when I'm down. When I cry, he will give a worried look then frantically run to me and lick me down. Really really adorable whenever he does that. I start to look forward to coming home everyday cos he will be the most excited and happiest member to greet me and lick me generously.

No matter how much stress I accumulate during the day, the sight of him made me forget things clouding my mind.

My mom who has phobia of dogs (Still has), started to love that little furball alot. She coos about what he does in the afternoon when I'm away at work. In the beginning, she tolerated him enclosed in a play pen (she's afraid of dogs rubbing against her legs). Then it promoted to a fenced up area within the house. Later on, she voluntarily let him out as early as 2pm in the afternoon when he wakes up from morning naps. By and large, cai's fast becoming the apple of our eyes.

Doggie Horoscope

Interesting. Got referred to a horoscope site for our little furballs.
Well, no harm giving it a try right. Also wanna see how accurate it can be. HAhaha.. Probably then I can understand cai cai more.
Here's today's reading for cai:
You have strong and definitive emotions. You make a staunch and loyal friend, but a bitter enemy. You should learn to guard against jealousy.
(Ah true true. That little fella gets jealous and pounce on me when I pretend to call his toy cai cai and stroke it)
Take care that your desire for revenge does not spoil your happiness.
(Eeks! Revenge??)
You love your home and family life. You are fascinated by the new and unusual and are always sniffing out new adventures.
(Yah, if you consider tearing up every single strange and bitable objects as new adventures lor)
You dislike constraint of any kind.
(Cannot agree more! Almost able to jump over the fence everytime I put him into his fenced area)
You are fortunate to possess independence and you are quick to action.
(Eh.. He is super dependent on me!!! Must always stick to me like super glue)
If you are looking for a rewarding relationship your soul mate may have been born in September or May. Your days will be filled with excitement and rewards.
(Hahahahahaha!!! He's awaiting to be neutured in Aug... Too late boy. Anyway, I haven have the least intention of introducing a new member as yet)
Compatibility with owner

ME = ARIES & CAI = AQUARIUS

A very compatible relationship. Aries may find Aquarius a little inattentive (not true), but with understanding and love, these two will click and share many new and exciting activities together. An adventure awaits you both!

Wish I was a doc

Wish I was a doc

Yup, I sounded angry in the previous post. It arises due to my frustrations of not being able to do anything much except seeing my grand-dad "fading" away.

I suddenly wish I was a doc. They say his body is weak but spirit's still strong. His will to live is very very high. We shud go along with that isn't it? But the docs were implying otherwise.

I wonder how a decision shud be cos if we allow the machines to be plugged off, aren't we = MURDERERS???? We are depriving him of living when we cud.

But seeing him suffer also render alot of tots of relieving him from this world.
Well, I shud be thankful that I'm not the one to make the decision.... Still... (Sigh..)

Dunno what to write liao.

Death

Really dun feel like writing anything right now.

Numb

So I simply cut my bro's post and pasted it here.
Anyway, his tots are exactly mine... except that I last saw him in ICU at NUH.
Yeah... Death is something that I have never come face to face with yet.
And Dad's definitely not OK!

My bro's post:

Death

Thursday, June 16, 2005
An unfamiliar topic to me.
Due to me not having experienced it before.
Until recently.

Grandad's in ICU for the third time.
More tubes this time, and practically living on machines.
I'm sure his sons have already come to the painful decision of removing the life support.
When will it be?

When was the last time i saw him?
At my cousin's wedding, dated not long ago.
He was still standing and smiling, though he couldnt hear what i had to say.

I hope my Dad's ok.
I know he's not, but he will be.

I think we'll all go see him one last time this weekend.

Story of a Pet shop puppy

Story of a Pet shop puppy

Read this and weep...

I don't remember much from the place I was born. It was cramped and dark, and we were never played with by the humans. I remember Mom and her soft fur, but she was often sick, and very thin. She had hardly any milk for me and my brothers and sisters. I remember many of them dying, and I missed them so.


I do remember the day I was taken from Mom. I was so sad and scared, my milk teeth had only just come in, and I really should have been with Mom still, but she was so sick, and the Humans kept saying that they wanted money and were sick of the "mess" that me and my sister made. So we were crated up and taken to a strange place. Just the two of us. We huddled together and were scared, still no human hands came to pet or love us. So many sights and sounds, and smells! We are in a store where there are many different animals! Some that squawk! some that meow! Some that Peep!


My sister and I are jammed into a small cage, I hear other puppies here. I see humans look at me, I like the 'little humans', the kids. They look so sweet, and fun, like they would play with me! All day we stay in the small cage, sometimes mean people will hit the glass and frighten us, every once in a while we are taken out to be held or shown to humans. Some are gentle, some hurt us, we always hear "Aw they are So cute! I want one!" but we never get to go with any.


My sister died last night, when the store was dark. I lay my head on her soft fur and felt the life leave her small thin body. I had heard them say she was sick, and that I should be sold at a "discount price" so that I would quickly leave the store. I think my soft whine was the only one that mourned for her as her body was taken out of the cage in the morning and dumped.


Today, a family came and bought me! Oh happy day! They are a nice family, they really, really wanted me! They had bought a dish and food and the little girl held me so tenderly in her arms. I love her so much! The mom and dad say what a sweet and good puppy I am! I am named Angel. I love to lick my new humans! The family takes such good care of me, they are loving and tender and sweet. They gently teach me right and wrong, give me good food, and lots of love! I want only to please these wonderful people! I love the little girl and I enjoy running and playing with her.


Today I went to the veterinarian. it was a strange place and I was frightened. I got some shots, but my best friend the little girl held me softly and said it would be OK. So I relaxed. The Vet must have said sad words to my beloved family, because they looked awfully sad. I heard Severe hip dysplasia, and something about my heart... I heard the vet say something about, back yard breeders and my parents not being tested. I know not what any of that means, just that it hurts me to see my family so sad. But they still love me, and I still love them very much!


I am 6 months old now. Where most other puppies are robust and rowdy, it hurts me terribly just to move. The pain never lets up. It hurts to run and play with my beloved little girl, and I find it hard to breathe. I keep trying my best to be the strong pup I know I am supposed to be, but it is so hard. It breaks my heart to see the little girl so sad, and to hear the Mom and Dad talk about "it might now be the time". Several times I have went to that veterinarians place, and the news is never good. Always talk about Congenital Problems.


I just want to feel the warm sunshine and run, and play and nuzzle with my family. Last night was the worst, Pain has been my constant companion now, it hurts even to get up and get a drink. I try to get up but can only whine in pain. I am taken in the car one last time. Everyone is so sad, and I don't know why. Have I been bad? I try to be good and loving, what have I done wrong? Oh if only this pain would be gone! If only I could soothe the tears of the little girl. I reach out my muzzle to lick her hand, but can only whine in pain.


The veterinarians table is so cold. I am so frightened. The humans all hug and love me, they cry into my soft fur. I can feel their love and sadness. I manage to lick softly their hands. Even the vet doesn't seem so scary today. He is gentle and I sense some kind of relief for my pain. The little girl holds me softly and I thank her, for giving me all her love. I feel a soft pinch in my foreleg. The pain is beginning to lift, I am beginning to feel a peace descend upon me. I can now softly lick her hand.


My vision is becoming dreamlike now, and I see my Mother and my brothers and sisters, in a far off green place. They tell me there is no pain there, only peace and happiness. I tell the family, good-bye in the only way I know how, a soft wag of my tail and a nuzzle of my nose. I had hoped to spend many, many moons with them, but it was not meant to be. "You see," said the veterinarian, "Pet shop puppies do not come from ethical breeders."


The pain ends now, and I know it will be many years until I see my beloved family again. If only things could have been different.

To all my sad friends out there

To all my sad friends out there
I know some of you are down right now at the moment. I'm dedicating this song to you all including the sometimes sad me too. Hopefully, you will find some solace in it. =)
Song Title: 你连笑起来都不快乐
Singer: 游鸿明
当别的女子对情人说 留下来别走给我承诺
你拍拍我身上的尘土说想念的时候回来看看我
当别的女子总的泪流 埋怨著情人爱得不够
你从不在爱情与梦想间要我只能够选其中一种
於是我去去留留 於是我漂漂泊泊
於是我停停走走 直到今天才发觉
你连笑起来都不快乐 你连做著梦都泪流
你把所有希望交给我 我却通通遗落在风中
你连笑起来都不快乐 你连做著梦都泪流
今後女人渴望的幸福 我要用心让你都拥有
Nice and sad right!! =)

Busy busy busy

Busy busy busy

I wanna scream!!! "I am so BUSY!!!! HELP"
I'm so bored down with work man. 24hrs seem so short a day now.
So busy that I do not have ample time to spend with my cai cai.
Sundays are now my official working hours too.
I neglected my blog too.....

Anyway, I squeezed sometime during the weekends to bring ah cai down to Junction8 where the Wacky Waggy Fashion Fun was held.
Ah cai was having loads of fun there mingling with other dogs.
But he was so silly. Other dogs were wagging their tails and sniffing him all over, while he mistook their action for challenges. In the end, he was trying to hop and pounce on them instead. Stupid boy leh.

Watched the doggie obedience competition. Used to think that Ah cai was smart for his age. Hahaha.. Now it seems I have to train him harder to achieve that standard of obedience. Not that I wanna take part in those contest, but having a discipline dog is cool!! That notti boy still haven gotten rid of his habit of biting and tearing newspapers. "Piak" Slap ur butt ah~~!

Btw, I subscribed for a year of Clubpets magazine. Not that I super love that mag, but the next issue will have me and ah cai posing for some picts. hehehehe... The mag's camera guy took a shot of him kissing me. Really hope to get my hands on the next issue.

一夜长大

一夜长大

末班车回家,雨一直下。
整夜忍的泪,它不听话。
我不想去擦,就这样吧!
爱让这女孩,一夜长大,一夜长大。
想要说的话,竟然忘了啊!
我总是很少说,不懂得表达。
分手我不怕,你知道吗?
你知道的啊!只是....

那几乎成真, 我们的家, 你真的不想吗?
那这些年的专心无猜, 你只当我是朋友吗?
我以为雨声会遮住你的回答, 它却那麽清楚啊!
让这个你曾深爱的女孩, 一夜长大.
原因一定很多, 就随你吧!
究竟为什麽, 我不管它.
分手我不怕, 你知道吗?
你知道了吧! 只是....

那几乎成真, 我们的家, 你再也不想吗.
那这些年的专心无猜, 当朋友都不好吗?
我多想雨中听不清你的回答, 它却那麽清楚啊!
让这个你曾深爱的女孩, 一夜长大.

那几乎成真, 我们的家, 你从此不想吗?
那这些年的专心无猜, 你只当我是朋友吗?
我以为雨中听不见你的回答, 它却那麽清楚啊!
让这个你曾深爱的女孩, 一夜长大, 一夜长大, 一夜长大.
