Sam @ School

I recently started Day School at Puppy Colours. To no one’s surprise, I earned the rank of a troublemaker after just one day. I guess they don’t call us Jack Rascals or Jack Russell Terrors for nothing. #iamsuchanangelwhytheysayinaughty Blending in like a boss. Can’t tell that it’s only my second day at school huh? #Iisanatural #highEQislikethatone Sam, the school troublemaker.  One look at my adorable naughty face and you will know why I am able to earn this honourable title so effortlessly. #whygotdogsocuteone #yayasam #fiftyfacesofsam I may be the oldest kid in school, but I definitely ain’t the best behaved. But oh well, they still adore me to bits. #andsoithinkla Photo credit: Puppy Colours Yap, in case you can’t tell, school days are a blast! Can’t wait to head back next week, #hengmyschoolnohomeworkorexamone #that’swhysofun

A Fuzzy Sleepover

It’s been a while since we did something fun in our lives. To spice our boring lives up a little, Mummy decided to throw us a sleepover party! Hence, she asked us to invite our friends to join us. But hor, we don’t really have many friends. #nothankstopecan #myfriendsareinNYC #weemocosoursleepoverlookspossiblyboring Oh well, so we decided to make do and invited our three FuzzYard troublemaker friends! Say hi to Electra the Unicorn, Aussie Shoo and Sushi the Fish. Since it’s a party, it was a must to wear hats. #theunicornnohatcosthehorntoohigh We spent our whole evening chilling and chatting about our lives. (Screams: BORING) And that was when we started to hear grumbling sounds coming from our little tummies. Well, I mean a sleepover isn’t really a sleepover without some yummy snacks! Thankfully Mummy was thoughtful enough to prepare some desserts for us. Since Shoo was our guest, we gave him the first sniff. #youbetterdontpooptherelor #elselateryounoheaddontblameme He took a tad longer than we liked, so Pecan ah ma decided to protest. #didntknowhermouthsobigone Mummy allowed us to pick …

Pet-friendly: Everything with Fries

If you’re a long time reader cum fan of *ahem* yours truly, you would’ve noticed that since Pecan ah ma joined our family we have ceased our pet-friendly cafe outings. #thickskinsam #scarlygotnolongtimereaderstheninoface #donttellme It is because Pecan has a bit of a barrier frustration.  Which means she has the tendency to react by barking and lunging when she is unable to interact with the object of interest (be it another dog or human). This happens especially when she is on leash. Hence, alfresco dining where dogs will be tied to the table (as opposed to a pet cafe where we will be off-leashed) ain’t exactly suitable for dogs like her. #sotroublesomecan  We’ve been working on her barrier frustration and are really pleased with her progress. #shegotbetterbutigotworse #shemusthavespreadittome Despite that, Mummy is still rather hesitant to bring us to pet-friendly cafes… That was until they walked passed… Everything with Fries at Holland Village. Daddy is a sucker for fries and the dessert menu caught sweet-toothed Mummy’s eyes.  Our parents just had to stop and give it a …

Quickie Art and Craft

Jack Russell Mania (JRM) is turning 13 this July. #cannotbelievegotthingsolderthantheancientpecan To get us ready for the exciting celebrations, Mummy ordered two JRM bandanas just for us. #ithinkiwearitbetterthanher #shhhhhdonttellherIsaidthat Okay okay, I think we both look pretty cool in it.  However, once we take it off, we won’t able to differentiate which belong to who.  #ifIwearwronghow #hersissmellyleh #cosshesuredroolonit  So, we attempted to mark our own bandanas with our own saliva. #spotourlittletongues #howhygienichor Thankfully the crafty (pun intended) Mummy had something up her sleeves. It was a real quick fix.  All she used were Martha Stewart stencils, satin paint, a sponge brush and a plastic container. And viola~ our very own customised bandanas. Not only does it look (and smell) good, it took Mummy less than five minutes.  #quickieartandcraft Doing an arty farty shot with them.  #showingoff #cannotissit Now people will know who we are when we attend the upcoming celebrations. We sure can’t wait! If you’re a JRT just like us, do join us for JRM’s 13th birthday! Click here for more information.

Paw Pet-radise is BACK!!

Our little fragile hearts died a little the day we learnt that Paw Pet-radise was closing. Afterall, it was one of the first few pet cafes I went to.  In fact, it took Pecan’s virginity (of pet cafe visits la) too lor. #okaythatsoundsgross #tryingtobedramamama We probably cramped in like… three visits in it’s last month of operation. #machiamendoftheworldlor But but but…. You know what…. apparently, Mummy told us that Paw Pet-radise has reopened! WHEEEEEEEEEE! #wrigglydance  We couldn’t wait to get our little paws there! #sokiasuthatwewentduringthesoftopeningweek Although it is still located at it’s original location (at Balestier), it got a little facelift! The most noticeable difference, is the introduction of a solid partition at the entrance. Say bye-bye to the flimsy gate! No more greeting the new dog via a fence. #yespecanwearelookingatyou Not to mention that this is certainly more secured. Gone are the large sofas as well! With that outta way, there is more space for the dogs to wrestle and play. Our parents did comment that the new furniture isn’t as comfortable though. But …

Dog-friendly staycation at the Regent

So I admit.  I’ve been experiencing some sort of a writer’s block.  That clearly explains the lack of post in the recent weeks. #dontgiveuponme #thewriterinmeneedsabreakla To help me recharge and re-gather my creative juices, our parents decided to check us into a dog-friendly hotel for a short getaway. Wheeeeeee….. This time… they chose The Regent Singapore for our dog-friendly staycation! The Regent Singapore allows up to two dogs per room, with a combined weight of not exceeding 35kg 15kg. (APOLOGIES: We initially thought that it was 35kg as that was mentioned to us by the staff whom we spoke to over the phone. The kind people from Regent’s PR team dropped us an email to clarify that the weight limit is actually 15kg instead. Sorry about that!) #blurmummy #mybad Oh oh, best part of all, there isn’t any additional charges for having a pet (as cute as me) in the room. #daddy’spocketissmiling Check-in was easy breezy. The only difference was that we had to fill up a pet policy form. To make things even easier, …

If jacks can fly…

they will look like this. #ahmahassuperpowers #howcomeIdonthave #shejustneedacape Flying through the crowd… And of course, nothing is more important than flashing a million dollar smile as you zoom by. How I wish I can fly. Le Sigh.

Car Safety 101

Okay la, this isn’t exactly Car Safety 101.  Mummy recently made some changes to the way we travel in the car and guess what…  we’re absolutely loving it! This was how we used to ride – shotgun.  And we absolutely loved it, even though our combined weight always triggers the annoying seatbelt warning beep.  Hehehehe… #inotfat #Iisbigboned #itispecan’sfault Best part of car rides then, was when we got to peep out and enjoy a nice breeze. Sam: “The guy is eating an ice-cream!!!” Pecan: “Where? Where?” But things ain’t the same in the Loo Lim Household anymore. #boohoohoo It started with a convo between Mummy and Auntie Kristina (Pecan’s trainer). Auntie Kristina was sharing about how a car seat restraint for her dog possibly saved his life when she got into an accident with him in the car.  And that got Mummy thinking.  In addition, Mummy always judges people who let their kids (especially toddlers and infants) sit on their laps, instead of on child seats. #thatgrindshergears Of course, she would quietly remind herself that …

GDAB Dog Challenge (25 April 2015)

We had a blast at Woof-a-thon last weekend.  So when the Guide Dog Association of the Blind (GDAB) contacted us about an upcoming outdoor event, we just couldn’t say no! #yeahtomoredoggieoutings We all know how important our eyes are to us.  Without the gift of sight, there are many things that we will not be able to do.  Unfortunately, there are some among us that are not as blessed as we are. That’s where guide dogs come in. These noble animals dedicate their lives to being the shield, companion and eyes to their visually impaired handler. The International Guide Dogs Day is a day to recognise the importance of guide dogs within our society.  In line with the International Guide Dogs Day, GDAB is organising their very first GDAB Dog Challenge on 25 April 2015 at Bishan Park, Activity Lawn 1. They are hoping to raise $100, 000 which will be used for the training of the blind and visually impaired as well as their guide dog programmes.  The GDAB Dog Challenge will consist of …

Woof-A-Thon on 12 April 2015!

We’re very honoured to be invited to participate in Woof-a-thon, the first pet walkathon organised by Singapore Heart Foundation! When: Sunday, 12 April 2015 Time: 4pm to 7pm Where: Bishan Park, Grand Lawn 1 (Opposite Dog Run Area) We all know exercising is great for our health. So why not make it fun by doing it with our pets. This is exactly what this event is about! Woof-a-thon aims to advocate the cardiovascular benefits associated with walking, a low-impact physical activity which pet owners are more inclined to partake. #suddenlysoknowledgeable #seeiamsmartone #ionlypretendtobestupid #pecanisreallystupid #itakefrompressreleaseonela Although registration for the Buddy walk has closed for pet owners, participants without pets are still welcome to join in the walk for free! No worries if you’ve pets (and have missed the opportunity to register), there are many other exciting things happening on the spot as well. Needless to say, we are really looking forward to a nice day out with our parents.  Pecan ah ma can’t wait to show off her cool sneakers.  #hengshenotwearingjimmychoos As for me…. I’m stuck …
