WE'RE BACK & THIS TIME, WITH JACK!!!!!
While other bloggers update their blog regularly, it has to take me a super duper looooooong while to post one. Sigh.....and it's so long that I forgot my password!!!
After such a long break, there's so much to update and to begin with, I shall introduce a new member to the family. A 10-month old male jack russell terrier by the name of Jacker joined us about 1 month ago.
Jack in short, was almost abandoned , if not for my dad. Jack belonged to one of dad's kopi tiam friend. The story goes like this:
Once upon a time somewhere in Ang Mo Kio, dad's kopi tiam friend, let's call him X, couldn't keep jack anymore because he's moving to a new house and his family ain't willing to help look after Jack. X usually will bring Jack to the kopi tiam with Jack being leashed. However, the day when X decided to abandon Jack, he brought Jack to the kopi tiam without leash, hoping that Jack would just run away on his own. However, Jack is too smart for him and refused to cross the road. X had no choice but to carry him and bring him to the kopi tiam. X then told my dad about the intention to abandon Jack by letting him run loose at the park. Upon hearing that, dad volunteered to bring Jack home till he gets re-homed. Dad is such an angel!!!!!!! and I cannot understand how come he has such a friend. Maybe calling X an acquaintance of dad would be more appropriate.
Anyway, Jack got re-homed but only for a short while. My sister brought him home with the intention of keeping him. Alas, my brother-in-law is not used to having a pet at home and that's how we adopted Jack.
As much as I ain't keen to have a male dog, I now ended with having one. On the whole, Jack is pretty well behaved and manja. I think that he is happy with being part of our family. Luckily, Jack gets along fine with Mikki and Mikko except for the occassional disturbance he brings to them.
Because of work, we have not been bringing Mikki, Mikko and Jack to the park as often as we used to. They spend most time at home these days. However, we do try to bring them to Sentosa at least once a month or car ride when we go out for dinner.
Talking about Sentosa, their last visit was on 5th Aug to attend their friends' (Tommy & Joey) birthday party.
Mikki, Mikko and Jack were sent to the vet on the 12th last month. All 3 got vaccinated and on top of that, Jack got neutered. Jack went home with the "trumpet" and had it on for for the first 3 days. I bet he must have felt uncomfortable that he got his sisters to help him got rid of it because, on the 4th day, the "trumpet" was on the floor and the string was bitten to pieces.
Mikki is over weight, Mikko is at the max weight that she should be and Jack is a little under weight. In order for them to stay healthier, I've decided to reduce the frequency of feeding them dried food and give them a healthier diet.
I've been feeding kikoja (mikKI, mikKO & JAck in short) steamed pumpkin, boiled sweet potatoes, boiled potatoes, beef, fish, papaya and apple more often these days. I've plans to also feed them cauliflower, broccoli, corn and brown rice.
Meanwhile, I'll continue to serach from the net what else can I feed them before they get bored with the above.
