Merry Christmas

We hope all your dreams come true. And that all the stray doggies in the world find someone who will love and care for them. And that no doggy will ever live in fear or pain.

May you be blessed with the true spirit of Christmas.

Love Brownie Roo and Family.

Attention all doggies in Canada and America

Nov 30, 2007
Tainted pet food killed 200 dogs and cats: study WASHINGTON -

UNITED States health officials received thousands ofcomplaints earlier this year about pets killed by contaminated petfood, but veterinarians said they had been able to confirm just 224deaths.

A major recall was begun last March after ingredients imported fromChina were found to have contaminated some pet food.

Canadian manufacturer Menu Foods Income Fund was hardest hit, recalling 60million packages of pet food.

The US Food and Drug Administration said it received 17,000 complaintsof related pet deaths, although it had confirmed just 16. A survey posted on the Internet, and widely publicised by the AmericanVeterinary Medical Association, attracted just 500 responses and ofthose, only 348 cases of pet sickness met the criteria for kidneyfailure caused by the contamination, the team at Michigan StateUniversity found.

'It is easy to think that every death or every sickness is occurringbecause of the pet food problem,' Mr Wilson Rumbeiha, who worked on the study, said in a telephone interview on Thursday.

But when strict criteria were applied, it appears that far fewer deaths could be blamed on the pet food. The deaths from contaminated pet food may have been caused by mixing two compounds - melamine and cyanuric acid, Mr Rumbeiha said. 'Separately, those two compounds are pretty harmless,' Mr Rumbeihasaid. 'But when combined, they form crystals which can block the kidneys.And, unfortunately, these crystals don't dissolve easily. They go away slowly, if at all, so there is the potential for chronic toxicity.'

The Canadian-based Menu Foods makes pet foods sold under labels such as Iams, Eukanuba, President's Choice as well as store brands sold at Wal-Mart, major grocery chains and pet stores. Mr Rumbeiha and colleagues designed a questionnaire to determine how many animals had become ill or died from eating bad food.

They found 348 cases that met the criteria for what he called kidney disease caused by the compounds - 236 cats and 112 dogs. 'Two-thirds of the animals affected were cats, but proportionally,more dogs died from it than cats,' Mr Rumbeiha said in a statement.

Almost all the cases were in the United States, with the other 2 percent from Canada. -- REUTERS

Man in India Marries Dog to Atone for Stoning to Death Mating Canines

Sharon says she does not want to think about what this sick and disgusting groom would do to his "doggie bride" if he does not get cured.

Here is the full story:

Selva Kumar had been hounded for 15 years by the memory of a horrible act he'd committed as a teenager.

As an 18-year-old he had stoned and clubbed to death two dogs he found engaged in mating. He then hung their carcasses from a tree. That's when his personal suffering began.

"After that my legs and hands got paralyzed and I lost hearing in one ear," Kumar told the Hindustan Times newspaper. Kumar, now 33 and living in the southern Indian district of Sivaganga, could no longer take the physical pain of the "dog curse," so he sought the advice of an astrologer.

Her cure for his maladies? "Marry a dog." Which is just what Kumar did on Sunday.

In a ceremony befitting a beautiful Indian bride, the bitch, a former 10-year-old stray named "Selvi," was bathed and dressed in a ceremonial orange sari with a garland of flowers adorning her neck. She was then brought to the temple in Tamil Nadu to be presented to Kumar by members of his family.

Kumar, sitting beside his bride, recited his marriage vows, declaring, "I will take care of it until its death." Then, the "couple" was declared married.

Deeply superstitious people in rural India sometimes organize weddings to dogs and other animals, believing it can ward off certain curses.

The Hindustan Times reported Kumar's family hosted a feast — while Selvi dined on a bun.

I have been a busy doggie!

Looking after Sharon and Jules while they studied. I wish they would stop studying and just spend more time with me, quality time, not just any kind of time. Soon I hope...

I have also been a sad doggie. Been surfing the Internet and read some horrible stories about doggies.

One day I will post it up here, as well, we should all be aware. One day when I get over what I read, I will do it.

SMSes from Jules to Sharon

I spied these SMSes on Sharon's Phone.

"She squealed while scratching her ear again. Such a nice sound but hope she doesn't go deaf!" 4 Oct 2007 (This was because Karen cleaned out my ears pretty well. She may have hit a sore spot. I still love her lots.)

"Babee, I am amazed at the amount of shit and pee that small canine stomach can contain. It seems that there are no other ogans in there! Amazing!" 10 Oct 2007

"Babee, she shat three times, she has a mutant stomach." 12 Oct 2007

Help! I hate brushing my teeth!

Sometimes I am too tired to even stand

Thats how much work I have got to do...

Blast from the Past

Sharon found this photo of me...pregnant and with my left paw still in pain.


Thursday, September 20, 2007


Sorry all, I have been a very busy doggy...busy taking care of the house and Sharon and Jules. They have been very tired with work and school.

They even forgot to bathe me for 5 weeks! Hahahaha, Whoppeeeeeee!

Sharon always tells me she is working hard so that she can give me a better life. But I like my life the way it is now...a much loved brown doggy doesn't need much money. I am happiest when I am sleeping on the bed with them.

She also tells me that she can probably never give me my very own garden, but what the heck, I have the whole world out there to pee and poop in, who needs her own garden?

I just want them to spend more time with me. Don't they know that already?

On Sharon's Arm

The best place to be :)


Whats Happening!?? Heeeeelp


Monday, July 30, 2007

Now you know why Cats scare me!


I love my Beanbag

Sharon says it makes me look fat!


Our Pledge goes to ASD

Ages ago, Fei started a pledge which we joined.

Finally Sharon found her cheque book, kept in such a safe place she didn't think of looking there. So we are going to donate to the Action for Singapore Dogs.

We are going to give a little something to Vina. She reminds me of me when I was a stray. Thank God I now have a home. I hope Vina and her pups find one too.
PS: Ricky from ASD helped me when I was a stray too. I don't think he remembers me. But I will always remember him in my doggie heart.


Rocking Girl Blogger!

Wow! Thanks Jeannie and Jewel for giving me the award! You guys rock too!


I AM BAaaaaaaaak!

Heellooo everyone, sorry I have disappeared.
I was on tour. See?

Heheh, just kidding.

Sharons been down with a horrible throat infection. It was really bad and she couldn't eat or talk. And her head hurt very badly. I have never seen her not eat before, poor Sharon, I can't imagine not eating. She had to take 2 courses of antibiotics and she wants me to tell everyone that if they have a throat infection that won't go away and their ears get all clogged up, they have to take enzymes in addition to cold medication whether or not they have a cold. It worked for her! She got 6 days off work but slept all day. I missed her voice.

And I went to the scary VET. I was terrified! They cut my nails and gave me a clean bill of health BUT said I need to lose 5 kg!!!!Oh me oh my. Jules said no more snacks for me. I am so sad. But I got a coool red bandage and when Sharon took it off, there was no blood at all. Aren't I brave?

So that's why I was such a busy doggie!

Velveteen Rabbit

"When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."

Sharon and Jules have a game they play. They know I am real, but sometimes they (yes, overgrown teenagers) like to talk about how it would be if I were like a real human.

They always picture me as a dog but able to do human things, like go to school, drive (they said my paws have to be tied to the steering wheel as I don't have opposable digits) and go for buffets (there's no way they could replenish the food fast enough). I don't have to wear clothes though (Yay).

They always say I would be a very loving person. And pretty smart too (beams). And I wouldn't have to queue or ballot for a place in a popular primary school as Jules is from Nanyang Primary which would get me a place there automatically. So I would be off to a good start!

They insist I would't have very good table manners or social etiquette as I would still like to smell your butt or crotch and eat off the floor. But they say my big brown eyes would make up for it all (smiles).

They also said I probably will have little confidence but my friendliness will more than make up for that shortfall. I also may not have many friends because of the baggage (turned around and looked at my back and couldn't see any baggage) I carry but whatever friends I have, I will love love love!

I will probably have a weight problem (like Mommy) and a "must shave everyday" situation (like Daddy).

What they don't know is that I picture them as big huge doggies too! All the time. Then they would be home with me. Why would I want to be human?

Are your humans that strange too?


I have been Tagged!

Akira and Shiro tagged me! Now I have to tell you 7 things I never mention in my blog. And find 7 other doggies too!

Its really hard, I am such a "tell it all" doggie, what else can I tell you?

1. I am terrified of thunder
2. When I get scared, I hide under the chair or bed not realising the rest of my butt is sticking out in its full glory
3. I eat lots of bones and crap when I go for a walk, I just can't help it
4. I have bad breath (according to Sharon)
5. I hate peas and Tow Gay (Beansprouts) and I will pick them out with my teeth
6. I can spit cherry pits out really far
and this is a BIG secret,
7. Ahem, I am missing a nipple (ARRrrrhhhHH, can't believe I just told you guys that)

I tag
Fei, Jeannie and Jewel, Pearly, Buster, Jay, Ginger and Brutus

Any dirty little skeletons?

Happy Birthday Brownie Roo

We hope you know how deeply we love you
If only you knew the valuable lessons you taught and continue teaching us

You must have known we would be together forever from the first time you saw us
I remember you sitting outside my home, begging to be let in.

I remember being terrified of you - a very pregnant stray
You were such a brave doggie, getting beaten by the Evil living upstairs

And yet coming back to my home, because you knew...
You knew we were going to be soulmates
I often berate myself for not letting you into my heart earlier

I remember you stealing my shoe and running away with it
I still chuckle to myself when I think of that

You walked me across the carpark every day and watched till I safely crossed the street
You knew I would turn around to say goodbye
How did you know?

Our only regret is that we never had you as a puppy
We are sorry we were not there to protect you from getting the scars on your face
We wish we were there to help you mend your leg when you hurt it
Every time we see your bent leg and your scars, we feel such auguish

We shudder to think of you almost giving birth alone and we are eternally grateful to all who helped

If only we could turn back time, we would have loved you from the day you were born.

Happy Fifth Birthday Brownie Roobarka!
