A Little Friend

Sometimes we get extra special guests :) Meet our Little Friend - her name is not here cuz I can't spell it! But we still love to have her over.

Here she is on her wheel - and she can run fast! If she spies you looking at her (like with a huge camera phone!) she'll stop and look at you: "what'cha looking at!"

And if you still "invade" her privacy - she'll come up to check out the intruder. Amazingly, she's good with the dogs that come and press their noses up the glass tank that she calls home. "Silly pup-arazzi..." she must be saying. I think if she had big celebrity sunglasses, she would put them on!

She does love her food - glad to see that she's not too concerned about what others think about her figure. "I'm a growing gal." Life of a little hamster is quite funny indeed!

Xiong Xiong

How Mr Hero has blossomed... he always looks like he's soooo sad. Then he'll break into a big grin, like he has something planned in that brain of his.

And his voice - oh yeah - he still has it! He'll be really good and we'll step out of the room for a while (like to go upstairs) then you'll hear it: "OOOOooooooo *pause for dramatic effect* OOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooo!"

Other than THAT, he's a funny fella to have around. Glad you're back Mr Hero!

Mei Mei

We haven't seen Mei Mei in (about) 2 years and we welcome her with open arms again! This was her back then.

Happy to report that Mei Mei is just the same now as she was back then - highly spirited and playful. Generally it's really nice to see the senior dogs in great shape and enjoying themselves. We love the oldies! :D

Scupi really liked Mei Mei and followed her around quite a bit. Mei Mei was accommodating as much as she could be! But Mei Mei liked Roxy and they played a "cat-and-mouse-game". Kind of just able to touch each other then bouncing/prancing/skipping away and asking to be chased. Too funny to watch cuz it's big/tall (Roxy) and small/short (Mei Mei). Haha!

Awww - hope that it won't be a long time till we catch up again!

We've always known that Scupi is special. But it wasn't until someone else mentioned "hey, isn't that dog on your blog?" :D Indeed she is!

And we know her so well, that even when she's not feeling 100%, we know that it's not Scupi-like behaviour. It helps that she's good us and with the dogs here too!

Roxy got me worried for a long time - she was quite a nervous dog and would not allow us to be too friendly with her. Just when you think you can give her a pat on the head, she pulls away! But we did not give up :)

Some days we just sit near her and let her come to us. And talk to her. And sing songs to her... thank goodness no one else hears us! Day after day, you just see her come out of her shell and it's incredibly rewarding for us :D

Then just one day she came up to us and dropped into a play bow and basically said "play with me!" We were so surprised, we just looked at each other and went "did you see that?!" And after that, all was good.

She's wonderful with other dogs, so that was always a fall back option; we would give her human space but kept her with other dogs so she was always socialising. I have a good feeling that when we see Roxy again next time, it will just get better and better .
