It has been a while since I woof on dogster... Mama & papa said my mouth smells terrible - very fishy, so I'd better keep my mouth shut!
But now... the bad breath is gone! So I think I shall start woofing :-)
My mouth smelt very very bad for a while. But the vet did not want me to go through GA for dental scaling, as I was way overweight. I was once a healthy 13-lb pup, till my human brother was born. I, somehow, doubled (almost) my weight to 25 lbs over next two years. Horrible, right? Well, I ate my food, Maruko's food and my human brother's food too! The amount of food adds up. So mama has been trying to help me lose weight. After two years of struggle, I'm now down to 17.5 lbs :-) Oh Boy, it's tough to lose pounds... But I'm glad I have done so. I'm a lot more energetic and confident! So, I went visit my vet after Christmas for a dental appointment. Consider my age, my pawrents were very concerned about the GA, so they discuss with the vet a lot and had me run through some blood tests before the dental procedure.
Though the numbers seemed to be in good status, but they were still very worry, as I'm going through dental as well as removing some lumpy growth behind my left ear and on my right leg at the same time. One of lumps seemed to be filled with fluid and had some abnormal bleeding.
Well, after few hours of waiting, the vet was finally done with the dental scaling and lumps...
*Bad teeth bad breath - 7 bad teeth were extracted!
*Two lumpy growths were removed. I had some stitches, but they are gone now :-)
So that's about it... I started my year 2015 with 7 teeth short, but a fresh breath in my nouth! Woof~
Happy New Year to every pup.

Yup, it was an unexpected trip...
Mama went to St. Petersburg, Russia a week ago! SHe did not expected that, everything just happened so quickly... Two weeks ago she gor a call from her sister and was told that her dad suffered from an acute mycocardial infarction (AMI) whil touring in Russia and was hospitalized.
So she had to go get her visa to Russia and get ready to make the trip with her sister to see her dad.
It was not easy for us pup too, as daddy happened to be overseas on business trip. So me and Maru went stay with our trainer, Jack, for few days.
Mama came back two days agao and pick us up yesterday... She was so~so tired. She said the trip was rough! SHe spent almost 24 hours on the road to get to St Petersburg, spent the entire day moving around to arrange thing for her dad. It was not easy, as She can't speak Russian but people there don't really speak English. But with lots of help, she and her sister had sorted out everything. The good news is her dad has been recovering well, and under the doctors' good care. Though her dad is still in no condition to fly back home right away, but the International SOS has taken up the case, and will arrange the logistic for him to fly home as soon as the doctor is ok for him to fly. So mama left St. Petersburg after 2 nights... It is another 24 hours on the road for her to come to her mom's place, then flew back home!
Finally, things are fine and we are all home. Mama's dad should be ok to fly home by end of next week... Mama said it was hard, but she is so grateful to have lots of help along the way! Now, she needs some Zzzz... So we'd better keep quiet. Good night, pups.

Wow, I can't believe this! I'm the DDP on Saturday, June 23.
It has been long time! I can't even remember it since my last DDP. Mommy and Daddy were so happy, but they did not give me any special treats, as I'm still on the slow-progressing diet to lose weight, but they did award me with some home-cook pork :-)
I wanna thank everypup for making my speicial day even more special by sending me rosettes/gift or mails, leaving comments, and making beautiful cards.
Besides the DDP, I also had a good weekend. My pawrents brought us and the toddler boy (ouor non-fur brother) out for our long hill walk. We usually get to do it once a week. But we did it on Saturday and Sunday :-) I was so happy! Daddy usually will let me run off leash at a quite woods along the way, but not Maruko... As he thinks Maruko does not respond to his recall "immediately". That makes me a better boy! But Mom said that Maru has improve a lot, so she decided to let me, Maru and our 3-year-old non-fur brother all run "off leash"! It was so fun to race with Maru and our non-fur brother. Guess who was the fastest in the first round? It was Maru! Followed by our non-fur brother. As for me, I'm the oldest, so I just let the young ones win the race. BOL. I took my own time to jog and smell everything. I did my pee and poo along the way. Daddy said he had picked up almost 2 pounds of my poo (think I did it four times during the walk ). Mommy said, it's my weekend detox!
Well, it's a goodweekend for us and I hope everypup had enjoyed your weekend too!
