Asta & Lex

Also affectionaltely known as "The Boys". These 2 brothers are quite different in personality when it comes to being indoors and outdoors.

When Lex is indoors, he's the perfect good boy. Doesn't bark, waits patiently for his food, plays well with others and by himself too. If you give him attention, he's willing to receive. If not, it's ok.

But when Lex is outdoors, he cannot even hear his name. He's always on the lookout for birds, squirrels, river taxis, lorries, etc... basically anything that can be chased.

Asta, on the other hand, is as cheeky and stubborn as they come! He's a Scottish terrier with the grin that shows off his pearly whites. Indoors, he loves to play with toys - rubber balls are his favorite! He will toss them and run after them. If they get stuck under the sofa, he will bark till you go get it.
Hey you! Give me my ball!!!

Walks are a killer, for me! This boy just wants to do things his way. If he wants to go left (and me right), he will HALT in his tracks and refuse to move. ALOT of negotiations needed :S

The boys get lots of pixs as i have walked and boarded them... AND they are heading back down under (Australia) where they came from. SOBS! :( I'm going to miss you and all your antics. Many many many hugs. I'm sure Lex will be looking forward to chasing trains.


This is Mr Marino... and as big and macho as he looks, he's a total softie! He will self-entertain himself with soft toys, choosing to shake them around and toss them about. Makes me laugh all the time!

And when he plays with the other dogs, it's quite a sight to behold. Here's one chunky lad bouncing around and play bowing to the others... although he will get annoyed if they take to the sofa to play. Then he will roll on the ground and try to entice them to join him!

Shhh... he's dozing off :)

Checking In to MIBO

With effect from 1 November 2007:

  • All dogs above the age of 7 months must be spayed or neutered. Also note that they have to be AVA licensed.
  • All dogs will wear a quick-release collar - if you do not have one, we will provide it during their stay.
  • All food brought to MIBO must be stored in an airtight/rodent proof container with their names clearly visible on them. Plastic baggies or opened dog food bags are not acceptable - we will accept proper ziploc bags (no holes please!).
  • All dogs are welcome and recommened to attend a DayCare session with us prior to boarding. This will enable us to perform a fair evaluation to see if your dogs is suitable for boarding. Ongoing DayCare rates apply, but we will be glad to offset the amount if your dog passes the evaluation and confirms boarding with us.

If you have any questions and need to clarify any doubts, contact us :)

Exciting Changes Ahead @ MIBO

In the next few months, MIBO will be making the eventual move to a new location! We're so excited by this expansion as our new place will have 2 times more space for the dogs to rule... they're all wagging their tails in anticipation :D

We will be moving from our current location at Holland Grove Road to Race Course Road. This is expected to be completed by 1 November 2007 - just in time for the holidays! And because we have more space, there are a few more spaces available over the festive period. But hurry and book now!

We'll always be on the lookout for new things to keep your dogs entertained and engaged.

Also: Huge Sloppy Kisses to everyone who has helped contribute to this new journey! Thank you for trusting us with your lovely puppies :)


All hail Ceasar! (i'm sure he's heard this so many times, it's old already...)

But this Golden Retriever is anything but old! He's a young pup that's just waiting to discover the huge world out there. Check out those big eyes and equally big nose :P

Here he is being caught in the mud at West Coast Dog Run... Cheeky!

Taking a break under the shade. Ceasar goes to the beach too... will see if we can get pictures of those. Puppies like him don't stay still for long!

My favorite picture of him so far... i'm sure there will be many more to come :D

In a Princess Moment

Check out THIS face!

This is what happens when dogs stay over often enough to know what they (think!) they can get away with. Goldie here just got told off for thinking it's ok to swim in the water bowl.

Most pathetic look ever... but it's a good sign actually. She's opened up and is really comfortable to be mischevious! She used to be vey moody and lie in a corner thinking about what a miserable experience staying over was.

How times have changed.

My Best Friend in The Whole Wide World

You know when you went to preschool or kindergarden and you had that one special friend the was your "bestest friend in the whole wide world"? That's Xabi and Phoebe. It makes me smile when they are together.

Classic Xabi pose - happy smile all the time!

Cuz they play just as hard as one another, give and take turns. Sure, there are disagreements sometimes, but they make up and it's as if nothing happened! Xabi can't wait for Phoebe (lazy butt) to wake up every morning. Phoebe loves it when both of them jump on the sofa together and send it flying across the balcony! Quite scary to watch for the uninitiated - lots of growling, talking and barking - but its' all in good fun :D

3, 2, 1... watch out, he's about to spring!

And in a rare moment: yes, Xabi actually sleeps :P But if you just whisper his name from across the room, he's up and ready to go go go! Who needs caffeine?


Meet Dandie: shy, anti-social, i'll-hide-under-the-table-till-it-all-goes-away... you get the picture. I didn't give much hope of this 9 month old maltese coming out of her shell anytime during her 5 day stay.

Oh boy was i wrong. It took all of 2 days for her to be a bouncy, playful puppy and zooming all over the place. She was even interacting with other dogs! Wow - the miracles that happen under this roof is amazing sometimes.

Keep it up Dandie!

Beatrice & Gracie

Say a big hello to Gracie-Pie (left) and Beatrice-Bear (right) - yup, those are their actual names :) And with names like that, you just know they are real cuties!

Beatrice here is 6 months old and quite the monkey around the house (can't tell with that serious face huh?). She loves to play with the other dogs and will try to get them to chase her.

Here she is with the others looking totally bored. You can tell she's going to be up to mischief!

And this here is her cockerpoo sister, Gracie. At 2.5 years old, she's the more "ladylike" of the 2... except when it comes to food! Then she's the sneaky one - she knows to jump to great heights and pull down containers from the kitchen counter!

They love each other's company and Beatrice will cry if Gracie is taken out of the house (even for 10 minutes!). Awww...
