Made with Love: DIY Dog Toothpaste

Mummy is very particular about our day-to-day hygiene and health. One thing that she takes pride in, is how she manages to brush our pearly whites. Not just that.  She does it EVERYDAY. Religiously. #sheprobablywishesthatwecanbrushitourselves #sorrywedonothaveopposablethumbs PS: Ah ma got stinky breath, so I sit far far away. I started brushing my teeth when I was just a two month old puppy. Since the habit started really young, I am actually very fond of it. #thatexplainswhymyteethlooksogood I am 6 this year, and judging from the condition of my teeth, I’m very confident to say that there is no need for any scaling anytime soon. #thevetswhoIseearealwaysveryimpressed #importanceofbrushingteeth  (Okay la, Mummy thinks raw bones play a larger part, but that’s for another day/another post) Pecan, on the other hand, is almost bo-gay (toothless) after two scaling sessions to rid her of her bad (BAD, BAD) breath.  Now, her breath is way better. And to ensure that she doesn’t have to go under anesthesia in future, Mummy is doing her best to keep those remaining teeth clean and …

Sam’s Pick – Ewegurt

Mummy loves me to the moon and back and would never push me away no matter what I do. Well, almost.  There is just one tiny little thing that will send her running away (and also pretty much empty the room in seconds) – my fart bombs. #yapIamsamthefartingmachine #myfartsarepotent #sorrynotsorry So when Uncle ZK from Platinum Pets dropped us a message to find out if we were keen to give Ewegurt a shot, Mummy jumped at it without any hesitation. #anythingthatcanresolvethewaytoofrequentfartbombsplease Mummy has been giving us yoghurt as an occasional treat for a while now.  While Pecan ah ma does great on it, the store bought yoghurt results in runny poops and (to mummy’s horror) added potency to my ‘almost-fatal’ bombs.  #Isecretlylikethatactually So, Mummy was keeping her fingers crossed that Ewegurt would do the opposite – help settle my sensitive tummy while providing probotics to help with my digestion. #butIlikemyfartbombsleh We were quite surprised when the packaging arrived. As it is branded as Sheep’s Milk Yoghurt Based Treats for Dogs, Mummy was expecting it to …

Sam’s Pick – Chew Time

It’s no secret that Jack Russells require a crazy amount tons of stimulation to keep these terrors out of trouble.  That’s pretty accurate for the case of me and Pecan ah ma. #memorethanherofcourse #seeourinnocentface  To keep us out of trouble (well, me mostly), Mummy invested in a huge variety of chews.  From rawhide (yucks, we no like), bully sticks (smelly and yummy), antlers (which was a total fail – it was so hard that I didn’t give a hoot about it), you name it, we probably would have done a taste test on it. #wewonderhowourbelliescantahanalltherubbishmummyfeedsus #nocomplaintsthough #nowonderdaddypocketisquiteempty Honestly, we had way more options when we were still in New York.  Once we moved back, Mummy noticed that it was rather challenging for her to find decent chews for us.  Well, of course until we chanced upon… Chew Time! One first experience was Christmas two years ago when… we won a Chew Time giveaway.  #seehowcheapomummyis Our first taste of Chew Time’s bully sticks. #goneinsixtyseconds #nolarwheregotsofast  Needless to say, we became instant fans of Chew Time! And …

Our ‘Reunion’ Dinner!

Lunar New Year is just around the corner. Unfortunately for us, we won’t be able to tag along for our parents’ reunion dinner. Don’t feel too sorry for us, because Mummy already made up for it! #mummyreallyisdabest To satisfy our little tummies, Mummy went ahead and ordered a Superdog Kitchen’s Chinese New Year special for us! Hehe, of cos we must dress up for the meal – featuring our Monkey Bandanas from Loyal.D! Sniffing and checking out the goodies in store for us. Ta-dah~ it was the Ong-Lai-Loh! Because Mummy’s lousy photography skills cannot do Ong-Lai Loh justice, here’s how gorgeous it really is! In case you’re wondering, it smelt and tasted every bit as good as it looked. In fact, Mummy couldn’t resist and took a slice herself.  Ah ma and myself were seriously concerned that she was gonna finish everything herself. #yalasheisthatgreedy #hengsheleftsomeforus #elsewesureblackfacewholeCNY Photo credit: Superdog Kitchen Waiting to dig in. #thisisclealyatorturousmoment #hurrylehwewannaeatonehor Our hungry and impatient tummies were extremely excited. #diediemustgivemummyaperfectshotelseshewillnotletuseat #ourlivessuck Okay, this isn’t the best shot of me but Mummy …

I turned SIX – my second celebration!

And my celebration continues. This time, with the second most important *cough* lady *cough* in my life. #ohmancannotbelieveIhadtosaythat For starters, we turned up for my party dressed to the nines in our new Crew La La collars. Mummy is damn ridiculous la.  When she was shopping for the collars, she was worried that the bows would get lost in our shaggy coats. Hence she decided to opt for the bigger design. Well done lor.  #nowwelookstupid #thebowisasbigasmyface Oh well, at least you can’t miss it for now. Thankfully, the bows are detachable. #phew For once, Mummy really planned ahead for my birthday this year.  #sheusuallyisverylastminuteone She actually ordered personalised bunting just for us since October last year. #wahsotouchedleh This is from ms.emmeline.pets. So cool right? It’s a pity that the clipart cannot be customised.  But we still adore it! Best of all, it is so re-usable. #bepreparedtoseeitoverandoverandoveragain The cake had to be the highlight of the party and possibly my birthday. Thank you so much Pawoof for accommodating our order! If you thought the cake looked …

I turned SIX – My first celebration!

Well, if you think my birthday is just over like that, you are so so so wrong. #dontforgetmummyisobsessedwithmelor #mybirthdayisahugethinghor Lucky for me, the actual day fell on a school day! (I go to dog school at Puppy Colours every tuesday.) School started off as per normal. And that means hanging out with my classmates and getting into trouble . #happyfacesallaround After all the fun and learning, it was the best part of the day –  My birthday Celebration. Mummy ordered a rainbow cake from The Barkery.  #mummyisdabest #nowallmyclassmatesknowhowoldIam #iamyoungatheart While I am usually a red meat eater, Mummy decided to go for a lighter flavour and chose fish instead. Besides a cake, Mummy also ordered one of my all-time favourite treats (Salmon & Brocoli Paws) from Barking Good as birthday favours for my classmates to bring home. #luckydogs #goodthingsmustsharema Eyeing my cake and planning how to section my stomach to finish the whole thing. #hehehehe Turned out the whole cake wasn’t just for me. #boohoohoo Of course the birthday boy gets the first bite! #whydobirthdaysonlytakeplaceonceayear Enjoying my …

Our X’mas countdown

December is possibly one of our favourite months of the year. (We love Jan, August, Sep too!) Because… Christmas is around the corner! Woohoo~ #wewelcomeallsortsofchristmaspresent #pleasesendthemourway Awesome mummy decided to kickstart celebrations a tad early by getting us Advent Calendars from Barking Good! #dontaskmewhatanadventcalendaris #thisismyfirsttimehearingaboutit #butgotfoodwhocares Thank you Auntie Dionne for delivering them to our doorsteps. #wepaidherwithtailwags Most of our stuff are in storage, hence, the pathetic setup.  #lifesuckslivingoutofsuitcases Anyway, we did what most people would do and googled the term “advent calendar”. Turns out that it’s a special calendar to count the days in anticipation to X’mas! And an awesome one is one that houses little gifts to be opened up each day! #theyshouldhaveafestivalattheendofeverymonthlor #whatanawesomecreation Gosh, why did we not learn about this awesome sh*t earlier??? We opened up the package and did a sniff test.  As well as a thorough count to make that Auntie Dionne didn’t shortchange us. Slight problem.. what comes after ten? #wecannotcountforourlives So I decided to hold Santa hostage and get Mummy to do the counting for us. #countorIwilleatsanta …

Dog-friendly Smoothie

We’re dying from the heat. #whysohot #twodeaddogslyingonthefloor After seeing how lethargic we are, she decided to whip up some smoothie! #mummyisdabest #weapprove #tonguesofapproval Our dog-friendly Mango-Strawberry Smoothie! Here’s what we need: One whole mango (cut into cubes and toss the pit away) A box of strawberry (Freeze it overnight to make the smoothie ice-cold when served) A cup of plain yoghurt One teaspoon of honey (optional, especially if your mango isn’t ripe enough) Did you know? Mangoes are actually good for dogs (source)! But be careful to keep the pit away from us and feed in moderation. #yummyfoodthatisdogfriendlyisdabest What to do: Simply toss everything into a blender and blend blend BLEND. #easybreezy Giving the sniff test. #pecandoesnotcare #shejustwantstodrink #samthefaketastetester Off we went! Yumz! #mustlickeverysingledrop #pecanapprove We absolutely love it.  And unfortunately, so does Mummy #ourmotherstealourfoodagain #ourlifesucks Oh well, at least it did wonders to cool us down in the nasty heat. Hope it does the same for you too!

Made with Love: Blueberry Ice Cream

It’s been a while since Mummy made us something. So, she decided to whip a yummy dessert to combat the heat! It’s none other than… Blueberry Ice Cream for dogs! #mummycannotplateforherlife #ittastedbetterthanitlooked #mummypretendingtobeadessertchef #failla It was a real simple fix and required only a handful of ingredients. What you need: 2 cups of plain/greek yoghurt 1 box of fresh blueberries 1 teaspoon of honey 1 piece of dehydrated pork/beef/chicken jerky Checking out the ingredients and giving it our sniff of approval. As neither me and Pecan ah ma are fans of fruits, Mummy decided to incorporate some blueberries to trick us into eating them.  Besides having antioxidants, they can also help with cognitive functions for older dogs. #senileahmaneedstoeattonsofblueberries #sucksthatwegotoutsmartbymummy What to do: 1. Puree the blueberries using a blender (Do set aside some as garnish) 2. Using a mixer, mix the yoghurt and honey together.  3. Add the pureed blueberries and mix thoroughly. 4. If you have an ice cream maker like us (we have a Cuisinart), pour the mixture into the maker and churn for …

Happy 5th Barkday to Sammy Loo!

Yap, it’s the time of the year once again. Little Sammy has grown one year wiser. To celebrate my bark day this year, Mummy decided to gift me not one, not two, but FIVE pressies (one for each year of my life!)!!! Wheeeeeeee~ #omgomgomgomgomgOMG #ofcoursethebudgetcamefromdaddy #nopehedidntgivewillingly To kickstart the celebrations, Mummy got us customised hats from The Lil’ Rascals! Now, we are in the right party mood~ Woohoo~ Bring the presents on!!!!!! A customised Birthday Cake from Pawlicious Bakery! There’s no birthday without a birthday cake! Hehe, since we had their signature fondant figurines for our Barkday last year (fyi: the figurines are still intact and sitting around in the house!), we decided to change things up a little. So, Mummy got Auntie Jaster to illustrate us doing our favourite activity in the world –  rescuing drowning toys! We sent Auntie Jaster a reference pic like this: And she came up with this awesome cake!!! #ohmygawd #ahmaiswearingabikini #samisrockingboardshorts We’re totally loving it. Okay la. I think Mummy loved it more than we did.  We just wanted …
