Doggy Snacks

I get to eat a wide variety of foods, because I’m cute and I know how to work the “begging face” but there are some things that humans need to remember when feeding us pups human foods…. we aren’t human. My human researches before she shares any new food with me, and recently we were shown this handy picture- so of course we had to share it.

Now there are things not listed that are dangerous. Such as Coffee and Chocolate. Also did you know that dogs are mostly lactose intolerant? Which is a shame because we LOVE cheese. I get a very small piece of cheese on special occasions (or if the human is cooking jacket potato- then I get 3-5 strands of grated cheese, not a lot but totally yummy and worth a lot of tricks)

Remember to use all opportunities for cuteness and your reward will come after the human has taken a photo and told you how pretty you are. See this ^ “kiss” shot with my new foster brother Kyo? Yeah I got a bone afterwards for playing so nicely.

Do you have any tricks for getting your human to feed you? What about some special tricks you do for food? I was in a corner shop the other day (the shop owner loves me and welcomes my presence) when the human noticed some watermelon. She picked it up to look at the price and I began to dance in excited circles. When she saw how cute I was, she had no choice but to buy the tasty snack. Cuteness: 1000000 Human: 0

Feeling Hot

It’s really hot here in Korea. Like fry-an-egg-on-the-pavement (sidewalk for the Americans) hot. Our walks are limited to super early in the morning before the pavement heats up, or late at night when it has had a chance to cool off. The rest of the day I stay inside, but we can’t run our aircon 24:7 and no it’s not because of fan death (according to Koreans, you can die from using your fan too much)

So we have to find alternative ways to keep cool. Here is my list of things you can make your human do for you to keep you cool during the last, overwhelmingly hot month of Korean summer.

1. Eat Watermelon~ Yep, you heard me. Make your human buy some delicious watermelon for the two of you to share. But don’t eat too much or you’ll regret it on your bathroom breaks.

2. Make your Human freeze you some ice to lick. It will keep your drinking water cool all day. The human can even use stock cubes to add delicious flavours to your ice. If your human does it in an ice-cube tray, they can be added to your drinking water. But what my human usually does it reuse pint-sized cardboard milk cartons. Once it has frozen she can peel off the carton and I have a block of ice to lick. Unfortunately she has no photos of this because she is stupid and doesn’t plan ahead so here is a photo from the internet of stock flavoured cubes.

3. This may sound counter-productive, but try closing the window and pulling down the blinds. If you run the aircon for an hour before your human leave then the apartment stays cooler because your blind is keeping the heat from the sun out. (We have to close the blind too or the foster Kyo goes behind the blind and then forgets how to get back off of the window sill)

4. When your human is not at work, have them set up a paddling pool. We use an old bottom of a cat litter tray (thoroughly cleaned first, thank you) Now, I haven’t actually used this one. But I like the effort my human goes through in filling it up for me.

5. If, like me, you mostly eat dry food- consider adding more wet food during the summer as it will help you to stay hydrated. You can also mix half wet and half dry together in your bowl and leave it in the fridge for a while for a nice cooling meal.

So those are my summer tips, yes I realise summer is almost over-but you wouldn’t know it from the Korean weather. 32 degrees today- that’s just my room temperature. Do you have any tips or tricks on staying cool in the summer? Let us know in the comments 🙂

Doggy Dye Jobs

There has been talk amongst the animal rescue community recently about the morality of dying your dog.
doggy dye

Now as you all know, I have my tail dyed pink. It has not adversely affected my health, I didn’t have it dyed instead of having any medical treatments paid for- so really I don’t see the harm in it. I love my pink tail and I regularly have a good snuffle in it. It has also made people less reactive to the rare occasions when I bark out of fear.

Now when we decided to get me professionally groomed for the summer, we decided to try out the dye. I would never go so far as to dye myself all over to look like another animal- too me that is ridiculous albeit hilarious. But at the end of the day- it’s the dog and it’s human’s choice. What right do you have to judge them for it? But that’s just my personal opinion. I want to hear what you think, vote in the poll below- feel free to add your own opinion as an option.

Snazzy Pup

I went on an adventure today, we took the subway all the way to Jungnang Station (중랑역) to my friend Leeloo’s vet (Royal Vet).

I was a bit nervous when the human left me but I was handled carefully by a nice english speaking human (Grace) after 2 hours my human came and took me home, I was very popular on the subway.

image

Now I’m home and look at all the treats my human bought me while she waited~ yay!

So what do you think of my snazzy new hairdo?

Belly Rub Time!

Being cute is the answer to everything

Being cute is the answer to everything~ want to go for a walk? Stand by the door and look cute. Want some food? Lift one paw and tilt your head to the side-works every time.

^^ how is this for cute? The human was boiling eggs for shelter doggies~ which is great and all but did they really need all 120? So I gave the kittens a bath until she couldnt handle all the cuteness I was bringing and now the shelter dogs have 119 eggs….

image

In other news I pooped in her shoes~ my bad

Guess the human still needs training on my optimal walk schedule

’til next time
