Wow, what luck to have stumbled upon such an active hub for pet enthusiasts. My name is Lils, and I'm mother to two shihtzu pups, May and Yoda, and a hefty golden named Bruno. I just relocated from Boston to spend time with my family this year, and it's been great being in Kuala Lumpur again. I'm not going to go into the whole "my doggies are the cutest" thing since we know that's purely subjective but I shall offer you a snapshot of my babies. May is the princess, who loves to spread out, carpet-like, on pillows while nibbling at her treats. Yoda is a shihtzu who thinks he's a chicken, i reckon---in addition to dogs, my parents also keep serama chickens. He likes to hang out with them and occassionally latches onto them and gives them a thorough tongue-bath. Bruno is 3 going on 4 but acts like a baby. He seems to forget that he's no longer that little 4 kg pup but rather a 40 kg adult---sometimes when he jumps up to meet me he literally knocks me over. His favorite time is when i take him on car rides and he gets to stick his head out of the window and smell the breeze.
Some random thoughts:
a) What's with all the dognappings? I guess I'm lucky because I live in a fully gated bungalow, but I've heard so many horror stories about dogs being taken away at the blink of an eye. It's appalling! Are they ever found? I don't understand why anyone would steal dogs (Cruella Deville aside), seeing as they are probably bonded with their owners already.
b) I'm vegan and haven't found any good quality dog food that's vegan. Can you get this stuff here?
c) I'm thinking about volunteering at Paws or SPCA. Does anyone know if they are euthanasia-free?
Hope to talk to you soon!
