Happy Birthday to Cocoa

Happy birthday, Cocoa...

You would have been 5 years old this year if not for the fact that you left us too early. We still miss you, especially your mum, dad, fat fat and Barley. By the way you now have a new little baby brother name Ayden. He is coming to 3 months old in a few days time.

Wherever you are now, we hope you are still happy, and having lots of friends to play with. Happy birthday..


Ayden saying hi...

Cocoa is hospitalized :-(

Hey there every pup, this is Barley posting today. My big brother Cocoa has been hospitalized since yesterday evening. It all started last Saturday afternoon when he puked out some rubbery or cloth-like material. Mum couldn’t quite make out what it was but she was thinking since he puked it out, he should be fine after that. But that night, Cocoa seemed to lost interest in his dinner as it took him longer than usual to finish it.

By Sunday, he was totally rejecting all food and water and began to have bloody soft stools. Mum forced fed him some honey water that night, thinking he should get better the next day as he didn’t puke out the water. Come the next day (Monday), Cocoa was still rejecting all food and water and looking very listless. Mum cooked some chicken breast meat thinking that this should definitely entice him to eat but she was wrong. Cocoa didn’t even want to drink the broth! Mum was really alarmed by then because something is obviously going very wrong.

So she brought Cocoa to the vet last evening and they did an x-ray and blood test. The x-ray was showing that there was some suspicious whitish shadow in his abdomen and it doesn’t appear to be any type of metal or hard object. It could possibly be food or ‘something else’ (but he hasn’t been eating since Saturday). The result from the blood test did not indicate that he is having any kind of infection or organ failure. All readings are within the normal acceptable range. Neither is he running a temperature or having any pain anywhere. The vet then suggested keeping Cocoa overnight at the clinic so that they could put him on a drip to keep him hydrated since he hasn’t been drinking water.

This morning the vet took another x-ray and the whitish shadow has moved down a bit, but not as much as the vet would like to see. The vet also mentioned that Cocoa had some disgusting bloody diarrhea again last night. He managed to eat a little bit of food this morning and didn’t throw up. They then did an ultrasound on him and commented that the whitish shadow look to be some sort of string/cloth/foam like material. If that is true, it could possibly get tangled inside causing obstruction. So if Cocoa doesn’t poop out that ‘thing’ tonight, the vet will have to operate on him tomorrow morning.

Sigh poor Cocoa. I am really missing him. Mum is really worried sick. Please pray for him to be strong and get well soon. Mum is going to visit him later and hopefully take some pics of him. We’ll keep you guys updated on his progress…

New Bed

Mum got someone to customise a big dog bed for stinky Barley sometime back and she was really pleased to finally have a bed that is big enough to fit us both!

In the bed with stinky Barley

Actually I don't like cuddling close to Barley. Look how I tried to push him away.

Safe distance

We decided to come out with a new award, called the 'OOPS I ATE IT' award! Mum made this humble little award featuring a tray full of yummy cookies and with one obvious missing cookie in the middle indicating that somebody 'stole' it! BOL!!!

Okay so here are the rules to this award:

"When accepting this award, you must blog about the food you have stolen when your humans were not watching.
If you have never stolen any food, you must have been a really good pup! You can accept this yummy tray of cookies as your reward! Next add the logo of this award to your blog (optional), then nominate at least 5 other furry blogs and let them know by leaving a message on their blogs."

WOO! So let me start off first! Well actually I have not stolen a lot of food, mainly because I'm often too short to reach the table tops. But there was once mum stepped off briefly during her dinner and I managed to jump onto her chair and slurped up almost half a big bowl of hearty clam chowder soup! Mum didn't think I would dare do it because the soup was still quite hot! But she was so wrong!!

Next up is stinky Barley. To record, he'd stolen and eaten:
- banana peels
- a sachet of sugar
- 2 Ferrero Rocher chocolate balls (yes together with the gold foil wrapper and all). But no he's not dead yet.
- some leftovers of a BBQ sambal stingray, mainly those soft bones of the stingray along with some sambal chili paste, and the whole piece of charred banana leaf below it.

Basically when no one is watching, Barley stands up on his hind legs to reach for unwashed dishes at the sink and savor whatever leftovers he finds! So unfair! If only I could do that too!!!!!!

So now lets geddit rolling! We are starting off by nominating more than 5 furry blogs:

Aki and Poopie
For those of you we didn't nominate, we have not forgotten you! You can pick up this award too! These yummy cookies are going around for all to share! YAY!

Opps I ate it!

I ate it too!

Howling at the Moon?

Hello every pup! This is Barley posting today! Recently my big brother Cocoa has a habit of howling at the full moon (we don't know if it's really full but looks full anyway).

It first happened last month when there was a full moon hanging in the sky. It was almost midnight when mum saw him sitting and staring up intently below the window. He was looking straight up and not moving at all. Mum thought he was staring at some insect but she couldn't find any. After a few seconds, Cocoa HOWLED and HOWLED! It was a long howl! Cocoa had never howled like that when he is at home. Even when there are strangers at the door, he would only give ONE low bark or short howl and that's it. Of course mum rushed forward and looked up at what he was staring, and she saw the bright full moon in the dark sky.

We forgot about it completely until the same thing happened again last night. Weird eh?? Mum jokingly says Cocoa is turning into a werewolf. I myself wasn't at all interested in the moon. Hmm, any of you pups howl at the moon too?

Me? A werewolf??
