My Unique Pups

My Unique Pups 

since november 2011, my snowy has never been the same again....first she suffered from depression.....


the depressed patient...look at her sad sad eyes.... =(



thinking that we had abandoned her with the groomer, she would sulk herself at one corner of the cage the whole day (for many many days) and refused to come out to play......and will shiver when we carried her out of the cage.... went online to do some research and found out that most depressed dogs will walk out of their depression within 6 months and even if we bring her to the vet immediately, the vet will not be able to do anything (they will not prescribe any medication too) until 6 months later.... =S


then a few days after she returned from the groomer, i found a few small small scabs around her neck, behind her ears and on her body.... =(.... initially i thought they were wounds from the grooming and since they had dried up, i decided to overlook it....

then during bath time a week later, i found new wounds....so not the groomer's fault..... then i suspected that brownie must be bullying snowy and had caused all those wounds during their rough play... so i observed how the 2 pups play and concluded tat it was not brownie....


so i got very very worried.... and immediately rushed her to the vet....and oh boy.... a visit to the vet really burn a large hole in my pocket... bought antibiotic, medicated shampoo and conditioner, did a heartworm (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dirofilaria_immitis) test and bought heartworm prevention tablets.... total damage $241...


vet said that the wounds are due to allergies.... but need alot of trial and error to determine what snowy is allegic to.... could be flea bite that she gotten at the groomer's place...could be the dog snacks that we have been feeding her...or even the dog food.... and dogs with skin problem (allegy) will have them throughout their life time.... =S..... 


putting this allegy issue aside, her eating habit is killing me and bringing my tolerance level to a new high lo..... she has to be fed...sometimes by spoon....sometimes by hand....and sometimes laid out on the floor bit by bit....it all depends on her MOOD on how she wants to be fed.....  she will take her own sweet time to inspect her food.... 东看看, 西看看, 东闻闻, 西闻闻...walk abit here, walk abit there....can take up to 20 minutes to finish her 3 scoops of dog biscuits lo.....  and if i get annoyed and raise my voice a little (just a little), she will 'act' panic and jump back into her cage to hide in one corner......then i will feel guilty.....argh.....我真的是宰在这只小不点的手上..... 做主人做到这样也真是可怜阿.... =( 


on the other hand, brownie is super easy to look after...no skin allegy...... has super fluffy fur that makes her look super round and cute and cuddly....and would gobble up her food every single time.... and she is so 乖 that she wun snatch snowy's food although she is very 'gian'....she will wait patiently for snowy to drop a few biscuits out of the bowl every now and then and dash to gobble them up but will never eat them from snowy's bowl.... heee..... and when i "erm-hum"....she wun even dare to eat those that are dropped out of the bowl lo.... and she's the one who will pop by the sofa where i 趴趴 to ask for a pat or a hug so often when she's let out to play.... heeee....
