The Happiest and Saddest Month

It's been so long since the last post and I know the post was about Tinker and Tiffany becoming good pals. Unfortunately, things have not been what it seems.

Last month was the happiest moment for me and my family. I gave birth to the most gorgeous baby boy.

Here he is at 1 month old.

Things have been hectic since his arrival and the days just pass real fast. But seeing his beautiful face daily is just amazing how God has blessed me with this joy to look after.

The 2nd week after baby's arrival, hubby and I were at home on a Sunday. Hubby happened to be downstairs working on his laptop. All of a sudden, I heard something terrible. Tinkerbell was attacking Tiffany. And thank goodness Hubby had separated them but got bitten again by Tinkerbell when he tried to discipline her. I came downstairs to see and Hubby turned around to see Tiffany's eye had popped out! I saw her eye from afar and became frantic! Called my parents immediately. My poor Tiffany's eye!! She was already half blind with her cataract problem.

Hubby and maid rushed her to the vet and my parents met them there and the vet immediately operated on her to put her eye back. The next day my mum brought her back home and we saw how terrible she looked. My mum had trouble giving her the medicine as she would spit it back out and as the days went by she showed no signs of appetite. 3 days later she was back at the hospital to be put on drip as she refused to eat.

We took her back again and AGAIN had trouble feeding her and the medicine. So she was back at the hospital again. This time the Vet kept her to get her back into shape and because her eye was getting swollen, he had to operate on her again to take the eye out. So 3 weeks after the attack, she is back home.

We have not moved any furniture and she is finding her way around the house by banging her head everywhere. We have to call out to her so that she will know where we are. But all is well and she is back to her normal self. Barking out for food as usual. Tinker has not been of help. Growled at Tiffany when she accidentally bumped into her. The vet did suggest grinding Tinker's teeth so that this would not happen again.

This is the 3rd time Tinker has attacked Tiffany. The 2nd time, it landed Tiffany in the hospital as her cheek was wounded. This 3rd time has been the worst attack. Tinker has been a jealous dog all along. This time it might have been Tiffany didn't know Tinker was in the dog bed and went into the same bed when Tinker was in it. Tinker was guilty when it all happened but it seems that she has forgotten what she has done when Tiffany came back home.

After this terrible attack, I did not know whether to show love to Tinkerbell at all. Tiffany almost did not survive the attack and we thought we were gonna lose her.

This picture was the last of the photos I took while I was upstairs looking after my babe. She looked so happy roaming outside despite not being able to see well.

Looking cute.

Photos of her ordeal. Beware... it may not be pleasant.

Photo of her eye sewn back into her eye socket.

Photo of her eye taken out. We went to visit her before she was discharge few days later. I saw this and felt terrible for her. She was her usual active self and wanted to eat her favourite food. We brought chicken and bak kwa and she ate it all up! My mum under estimated the amount of food to bring.

Now she is back home with us and slowly recovering. Please pray for her speedy recovery.

Just simple things we do around the house

Lately, these 2 have become good friends. Not sure why but Tiffany has also ventured outside and not stayed in the house so often. Her cataract seems to have improved and she can see better with one eye.

We walk together and hang out at night.

Nothing like just having each other's company.

Tinker has this funny habit. She walks under the table cloth around the table everyday.

She seems to like getting tickled by the table cloth.

She walks 1 round around the table each time!

Tiffany taking over Tinkerbell's bed. Does that mean I have to get another bed for Tinker? Tiffany seems to like the king size bed!

Swan attack!

Sorry for being MIA. Just didn't get around to posting these photos!
Here's a trip to Botanic Gardens during one of the afternoons with my cousin in April.

Tinker enjoying the walk. We walked for about 2 hours. Amazingly I survived but we were tired by the end of it.

She got to see some tortoises. They came so near thinking we have food.

Later, this swan came near us and we were surprised thinking that Tinker would get to see a nice swan up close. But guess what happened? It swam all the way to us just to give us a scare! It made a sound so scary that we took a step back! Tinker really got a shock and it attracted some attention from other visitors to the park. Felt so embarrassed.

Tinker still staring at the swan.

We walked elsewhere but came back to the lake. We're not sure if it was the same swan but it swam near us again. It again started making those sounds to scare us.

This time Tinker kept barking at it. And we attracted more attention. People were laughing and staring at the whole incident.

Up close with the swan.

11 MARCH 2009

Rubie gone to doggie heaven.

This is the day we will remember Rubie forever and all the beautiful memories she gave us. It's such a late post I know. I just couldn't write about her for awhile. We all miss her.

The last few pictures of her.

Tiffany still bonding with Rubie.

Still got the cute face at an old age.

Saying their goodbyes. Tinker and Tiffany didn't know they were saying goodbye. But I made them go to Rubie.

All in the car saying more goodbyes..

Tinker excited to be in the car but of cos the dogs didn't tag along to the vet.

Even then she still wanted to hold her own leash. She liked holding onto leashes esp Tiffany's. During our younger days, I would hold Rubie's leash and Rubie would hold onto Tiffany's leash while we went for walks. It was cute.

Rubie looking all happy still.

She had to be put to sleep. We had kept her as long as we could but she was getting sicker and had so much problems with her skin. She was suffering so badly at home that we couldn't see her this way anymore. She's off to a better place. We miss her.

Tiffany misses her a lot. She used to sleep with Rubie every night. But she realised that Rubie's not around anymore and sometimes she just goes to the spot where Rubie used to be. She misses her best friend.

Rubie always 1st in line when the food is out.

Tiffany a little overwhelmed by the guests.

Tinkerbell wearing her way too small t-shirt.

Meet Wendy! The cutest Chihuahua I've seen. It made my day. I wasn't so happy about visiting until I saw Wendy:D Awwwwww...

The Chihuahuas

Bobbi, he wasn't so happy that day and chased those people whom he knew were scared of dogs.

Rubie enjoying a nap on the pillow I was about to throw out. After that all the dogs took turns to use it.

Tiffany sun tanning

Not very happy. I think she was being scolded for barking.

Hi there

A folded paw?

Meeting rabbits for the 1st time. Can you see how excited she was or does she look like she want to eat them?

Enjoy the Christmas season doggies! Sorry no pics of Tiffany or Rubie. Tiffany wasn't in the mood for photos and showed a grouchy face. Rubie was too busy scratching herself when I wanted a photo of her. So there you go, only Tinker managed a good photo.

By the way, Tinker was naughty, she bit Rubie on the ear! She's definitely grounded.

Tinkerbell had a Bath

Hi Doggie pals and friends! It's been such a long time since the last post. Things at home didn't turn out too well in the last 2 months. We had a major car accident. A motorbike sped more than 250kmh hit right into our car and we spun 180 degrees. No dogs involved, just the hoomans. But we are all supernaturally unhurt with God's protection. Anyway, time for more dog photos!

Tinker not very happy to bathe.

"Do I really need to clean up?"

"Gimme the towel!" This happens after every bath.

"Yay, I got it!"

"See... I know how to wipe myself."

Okay shake shake

More shakes

I'm done! All clean and dry:D
