DIY TIME: Pill Pockets

I came down with a small bout of infection on my front paws. (No thanks to my itchy mouth) #cannotstoplicking A quick visit to the worst place on Earth vet and here we are, a grumpy-emo dog who is pouting about the meds he has to eat and a gloating ah ma. #howcomeIneedsomuchmedsone #canPecaneatthemonmybehalf Medication time is a TORTURE. Both to me and Mummy. Mummy: “Come Sam, time for your meds.” Nope. Not happening. At all. #sheiscrazytothinkIwilleatthemedsjustlikethatlor #eventhegreedyahmaalsowon’tfallforit #sheseemenoup There are a few ways to get those disgusting pills down my throat. For the morning dose, Mummy will painstakingly cut the meds into small sizes and hide them in my food. #sometimesIfallforthis #sometimesIdon’t However, I get fed only once a day. Needless to say, the evening dose is wayyy trickier. She will either shove it down (I HATE MUMMY), or dissolve it into a liquid and feed me using a syringe. Either way, it ain’t pretty. #mymummyabuseme #mylifesucks When we were in the States, there was a really easy alternative – Greenies Pill pockets! However, …

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 …

Happy 12th Birthday Ah ma!

September 14 2015 was a special day. It was the day that the ancient one (aka Pecan ah ma) turned TWELVE. #omg #whatahugenumber #icanonlycounttoten As usual, birthdays in the Loo Lim Household are a big thing. Well, kinda, only if you’re the beloved furkids. The parents get zilch celebration. #spoiltbrats So, it was party mood all week! Woohoo~ The birthday girl in her bathing suit. #omgagain #oldwomanactyoung It started off with the customary grooming session. #thisonewebothnothappyabout #enoughairtomakeathirddog Photo credit: Wooga This was no usual grooming though.  We actually went for a handstripping session. I’ve been handstripped before and was supposed to be quite accustomed to it.  However, it was Pecan’s virgin handstripping. Hence Mummy was a tad concern that she wouldn’t do well. #sooldstillvirgin #HEHEHEHEHEHE In the end, Pecan did beautifully. Me, on the other hand, cried ‘father and mother’ (even grandmother) when I was being stripped. #asusualsamistherascalofthetwo Mummy was so embarrassed when Auntie Shiting and Auntie Ashley told her that. Oh, in case you’re wondering if it hurts, it really doesn’t. I was just …

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!

The Honest Kitchen Treats

So our fish craving is back and we just couldn’t resist checking our Fuzzyard pet fish, Sushi, out.  Not in a good way in case you’re wondering. #nowondermummynowanttogetusapethamster #nopetissafeinthishousehold Of course, Sushi was pretty much sweating it out. #hownottopanicwhenyouhavetwohungrydogsstaringatyou And as usual, our dearest Mummy came to his (and our tummies’) rescue by announcing that she has delectable fish treats for us. Wheeeeeeeeeee…. #mummyisdabest Okay la, we shall leave you alone Sushi….for now. HEHEHEHEEHHEEH What she didn’t mention, however, was that I had to put on the hideous fish head for the shoot. Like wt…. #grumpysam #mylifesucks #itsnotthatthetreatsnonice #itsjustthatmymothersucks #mummyisdaworst #allpissyfacepost Anyway, my shitty fate aside, Mummy actually got us yummy The Honest Kitchen fish treats!  Besides the fact that they are made using all-natural ingredients (in fact, they are single ingredient treats), they are free of artificial additives, flavour enhances and colouring. Most importantly, they are also low in calories. #sammytummytotallyapprove These treats are definitely a great choice for pets with sensitive stomach or food allergies and of course, pudgy little pooches. DISCLAIMER: MY …

Barking Good: Pee-Can-Bites

Anyway, some of you may know that our dearest Pecan ah ma went for a dental scaling recently.  We knew that Pecan ah ma’s scaling was due. But Mummy was rather hesitant as she really did not want to put Pecan under anaesthesia if possible. However, after consulting with as many as four different vets, Mummy got the consensus that the procedure was a necessity. Oh well~  So in ah ma went. (And out went $1.2k from Daddy’s pocket!) Pecan isn’t the most cooperative pooch at the vet (she’s a pain like me!).  #likebrotherlikesister #cannotletthevetbullyuslor So during the initial consultation, Mummy was told that at least three teeth needed to be extracted. There might be more, just that the vet couldn’t tell as of then. But what Mummy didn’t expect was that these many teeth had to go…. YAP, they all belonged to Pecan. #toothfairyisgonnabebroke In case you’re wondering how many came out…. Mummy wanted to keep them, so the vet obliged and packed it for us.  #weirdsouvenirs #cankeepiscankeepjustnotonpecan While Pecan’s bad breath is finally …

A Dear Deer Party!

We’re extremely lucky that Auntie Pauline from Howlistic Life has very generously offered to sponsor our little tummies with food and treats! #weneversaynotofood YEAH! After all, we have been long term fans of the many products that her company carries. *wriggly dance* When she sent some of the goodies over, we were over the moon and just had to whip out our party hats and CELEBRATE~~ woohoo~ YAP, WE’RE HAVING A DEAR DEER PARTY! #seeingsomanytreatsmakeusuberhigh We had always been fans of Dear Deer treats!  I mean…look at them!  How to say no?! This was seriously how happy we looked all day while Mummy was busy styling the treats. #happyuntilourmouthscannotclose Here are some reasons why we are such huge fans. #yapmummyiscrazyenoughtocreateaninfographicsforthis #shehastoomuchtimeonherhands Here’s what we got our paws on! (and this isn’t even the full range!) Some tips: If you have an aggressive chewer (or an annoying pooch that wouldn’t leave you alone), we strongly recommend the deer ribs, kneecaps and sinew! And yap, no kidding man. The Deer Kneecap is probably the only thing that …
