Paws and Purrs

Saturday was a very strange day. When we woke up the human got me ready for a walk~ Yay! But it was raining 😦

image

I had to wear this rain coat over the top of my tshirt. ㅎㅎ
When we came back from our walk the human started making a new pen downstairs. I was really confused because my bedroom is upstairs and she used weird things like a cardboard box and something called a “litter box”

image

image

But she closed it off and I wasn’t inside so I didnt think it was important until….

image

Can you see them? Hmmm, how about a close up?

image

Thats right~ there are 2 foster kittens! The human is making them profiles tonight and hopefully they will be adopted soon ♥ they are very strange though, they are so tiny. I feel so big next to them, I like to herd them onto my bed~ I’m hoping for snuggles but they are too excited about exploring to sleep with me 😥

image

image

^forever alone 😥

Maybe they will relax with me tonight? I’ll have some videos of them uploaded tonight so expect another post, until then~ Anyeong! (bye)

Panda Presents: Goose in Korea

Hey everyone, so as a special treat I got a famous korean animal rescue blogger to write a blog post for you. I hope you check out her blog too its full of useful information on rescuing, fostering and adopting a human and its aimed at both cats and dogs~ and the best part is you get to some beautiful pictures of Lucy, I wish I was as big as her, although then maybe my human wouldnt appreciate me standing on her shoulders quite as much XS

Hi Panda Fans,   My name is Lucy! Here’s my picture…
image

Oh my eyes are closed. Wait, hmm…
image

Oh dear another bad one. Let’s see…
image

There we are! That’s me! How to introduce myself… My mom says I’m silly. That’s why she calls me Goose – Lucy Goose/Silly Goose… I am happy when she’s smiling! But lots of people say “여쁘다!” when they see me. It means pretty. I’m glad they say that because I am not a typical Korean dog. You see, I am very big for Korea. Most dogs are small – Maltese, Shih Tzu, Yorkie… But I don’t mind! I get along with everyone!
image

Here’s my friend and foster brother. He and I got along great! He was a very old miniature poodle. We didn’t play much because Major was very old, but we got along just swell! He and I just loved to sleep and relax. He had a great family after he left our house, but sadly he passed away. My mom said it was good that he did not die alone in the shelter like many dogs his age do. You see, it’s common in Korea to bring dogs to shelters when they are “too old.” Mom said that will never happen to me!

I’m so lucky ^^   I’m lucky in many ways because Mom knows a lot about dogs and about dogs in Korea. We have a blog about us – GooseinKorea.com – and Mom shares all our stories. These days my best friend is a dog who is chained up outside every single day. She’s very bored. She also gets cold, or very hot, or wet in the rain… all because she’s always outside. She likes to play with me, even though it’s just once a week, because most of the time she doesn’t get any attention at all! I feel very sorry for her situation. Mom says she’s not alone. I know Mom’s right because even though I forget a lot about my past, I know things weren’t so good before my mom found me at the shelter. I was at the shelter for a long time. I remember being scared and cold and just wanting people to take me on a walk when they would visit the shelter. They say I was about to be sold to a meat market before the shelter saved me. I don’t know much, but I know that meat market wasn’t full of meat for me to eat!

There are many sad and scared dogs in Korea and I am thankful my mom works with rescuing so much – she knows there’s many to help and we do what we can to make a difference… Donating, fostering, spreading the word, pet sitting, researching, helping others who have adopted, volunteering… Mom worked for a long time with the shelter I was adopted from – she’d ask people questions about adopting to make sure they were ready. She loves helping to find animals homes. She says every animal deserves one, just like me. I look forward to when we foster again, because it’s been awhile. Mom says she wants to foster kittens again… That’s right! I like cats too!

Mom says it will be really great to foster again once we can because the rescue community here is so supportive. Mom always is emailing someone or talking on the phone or posting online – just trying to help one animal to find a home or live a better life. She says I taught her lots and she always smiles and says how much she loves me while I keep her company as she types our blog. I’m glad Mom has her friends and they all love helping animals here in Korea. It’s really great to know I help her to make an impact – at least she tells me I do ^^

Well Mom says it’s time for a walk, so I must be going. I hope you enjoyed our post and check out our blog! Bye Panda and fans!   ~ (Lucy) Goose

Progress and Presents at Puppy Bean

Today was an exciting but tiring day. When the human returned we went to Puppy Bean~ the dog cafe. Everyone immediately started proclaiming how cute I was~ duh! But they wanted to touch me 😦

During the course of the evening I sniffed a lot of hands which seemed to placate them a little and this is way more than I usually allow. I even deigned to play with a white haired poodle although I didnt really like it when the other dogs tried to play too. My human played for a while too so I sang and everyone thought it was funny ㅎㅎ

My friend Leeloo came with her human and gave me a huge bag of her old clothes! So excited! I’ll model those for you next time.

We walked almost the whole way home and rode a taxi the last of it. My human let me sit on her lap rather than putting me in my carry case~ it was exciting to see the world move so fast!

Anyway we are now curled up together and I thought I would show you my favourite sleeping position. On my human~ hahaha

Until next time ♥♥

Presents Part 2

So my human went to e~mart without me today and brought me back some more presents! Man I love being a dog.

image

My shiny new raincoat so I wont get shivery cold after a wet walk

And all my favourite treats V⊙♥⊙V
Although the human made this big deal about how I didnt deserve them because I chewed on my new name tag…. Well if I had had the treats sooner maybe I wouldnt have had to eat the collar~ huh?

Presents!!

Today my uuman returned with presents!! A teacher at her school thought I was pretty so she asked a friend who makes home~made dog treats to make some for me!

image

Don’t they look delicious? I will have to ask my human to procure more of these yummy treats. I may even let this teacher touch my head for a second or two next time we meet….or not, it depends on how yummy these treats are I guess 😉

Pampering Day

Today the human forced me to have a shower~ she said it was my pampering day. I kept trying to escape so in the end the human carried me into the water~ that I didnt mind so much, I could hide my face and she got wet too mwhahaha.

After my shower she wrapped my in a giant towel so I couldnt run away to shake myself dry and changed out of her wet clothes. Then she brought me to a howling monster that blew hot air at me
image

image

Here I am trying to hide in my bed. I suppose it dried me faster than I usually manage from hiding in a towel

image

After I was dry the human put the nasty itchy smelly stuff on the back of my neck. So I tried to roll it off by rubbing my neck in the ground

image

She says I neee this every month to keep me safe but its so itchy! And the human wont play with me for 3 hours afterwards ㅠㅠ

Becausr I wouldnt stop running around trying to get the itchy stuff off the human confined my in the new pen

image

And when I fell asleep she covered me with one of her tops because my blanket is being washed and I’m still a little damp around my ears and tail

image

She says we’re going on a loooong walk later so I’m napping to conserve my energy. I have filmed some videos for you which the human will upload later~ showing me playing on our roof garden and waiting nicely for treats, hope you liked my pictures~ next time I’ll document how to make your human walk you and how to get treats while exploring
