Angel's home :D

Alright guys ! Look who's home !

Of course ! It's our little Angel :)

The day after the surgery, all was well until the vet suddenly called. Uh-oh. We knew it wasn't good news. But luckily, it wasn't tooo bad. It was just that the vet told us that Angel was refusing all the different kinds of food when they tried to tempt her & so the vet told us to bring Angel her fav food.

We brought banana, treats & her dinner. Well, she would only have a few sticks of her treat. She was so happy to see us. By then, she was already wide awake. The vet said that Angel was a different dog. All the dogs there would eat their food but only Angel wouldn't. The vet also said that Angel would not give them kisses when they opened her cage. She was worried about Angel being nt active and told us she would like Angel to stay in the hospital till Sunday instead. However, she changed her mind when she saw Angel with us. Hahha . She was wriggling like a worm :D

Remember I once told you guys about the way Angel loves sticking out her tongue ?
yep, the vet asked us if Angel always stick out her tongue like that. They even tried to push her tongue back in but it would just roll out again. ^^

She is home last night with her E collar and she doesn't seem to mind it being put on. When I bring her E collar towards her to put it on for her, she would come towards me and let me put it on. O.o weird.

There she is with her E collar :)

The rabbits taking turns to sniff her out. More like, interested in her E collar. =X                                           

And this, fluffed up little whitey is having her dreaded bath :D

Thanks all for helping :) Angel managed to pull thru the surgery ^^  Her whole uterus was removed and that also means that she is sterilized :D

However, the vet is afraid that some pus might already have diffused thru the uterus and into the abdomen.
So they will need to put her on stronger antibiotic to push the pus out via her vulva.

Her liver case will need to be cured too. An untrasound or another blood test might be needed. We went to visit her yesterday. She was still a little unconscious after her surgery but she still tried to stood up on the table and walked slowly to us. She was in such agony but still wagged her tail when she saw us. Dogs are really men's best friends :)

Last night, it was critical. It all depends on how strong her will is. If anything happens, the vet said she would call us. Fortunately, we received no calls from the vet ^^ This morning we called over to check on Angel, the vet said Angel was awake but still not active and not eating. They still have to monitor her but her condition is currently stable :D

Thanks alot for all your encouragement and prayers :) May God Bless You All :D

Oh, and Miko is currently enjoying her carefree life without Angel xD hehe. Well, she is one dog who gets jealous easily. Always growl at Angel when Angel comes running to us.

Here she is, trying to get some sleep :D

We'll be visiting Angel tonight again after my tuition. I'll bring back some pictures of her too :D If all is well, she should be able to be discharged by Saturday. Can't wait to have her running to me again ^^                  

Bad news..

Hey guys, Angel's mommy here.

Angel is currently very very sick... She'll be operated at 6.30pm and tht is only around 20 minutes away..

On Sunday, she refused to eat her breakfast or dinner. She even rejected her favourite treats and banana.
Then I remembered that it was time for her to have her deworming medicine. After she ate it, we were hoping that she would eat her meals the next day. However, she did not. We tried to urge her to eat, but she was reluctant. We thought that she would be alright the next day so we watched her closely.

Unfortunately, the same thing happened. Not only this, she became very very lethargic, not like her usual self. She felt hot all over. We then knew that something is not right. We brought her to the vet the next day as we were busy on that Tuesday. "Edmund Tan (ET) animal clinic" was the usual vet we go to but it happened to be closed on Wednesday. Hence, we went to "Mount Pleasant Animal Clinic" since it was just beside ET vet.

Dr. Fong, the vet who administered to Angel, said that she was feverish and that she feels a lump in Angel's womb. She determined that it was womb infection. She said that other than surgery, we can try medicine which might help to push out the pus in her uterus.

We went home after she had two jabs and fed her medicated food & medicines(at night) prescribed by the vet. She got very sick in the night and today, Thursday, she had a high fever. We decided we had no choice as the medicine was not working. We brought her to "James Tan Animal Hospital" and it was a must-to-do surgery. Otherwise, she might die.

The vet took an X-Ray and it was confirmed womb infection. Her uterus were filled with pus. It was totally infected. The surgery would remove her uterus and would also mean she is spayed. We decided to put her thru the op.

At 5+, the vet called. It was bad news. After taking a blood test for Angel, the vet said she had low count of red blood cells and high count of white blood cells. Not only that, her liver had some problem they couldn't determine yet and that poses an amount of risk to her op + her fever. She said... there might be a 20-30% chance that Angel might not pull thru the surgery..

I'm really sad right now .. Whenever i think of her leaving me, I would just burst into tears..I need Angel.. I'm praying really hard for her.. Please all help too.. Help to pray that she will be able to come out of the operating theater alive.....

Hey guys! Good news ! Angel & Miko are getting along fine now :D
Miko no longer growls at Angel & Angel is nt fearful of Miko anymore ! ^o^
Now they play almost the whole day, turning the house upside down !
They both love playing wrestle (ok, maybe only Angel. Miko still tries to hump her but Angel doesn't mind ! P.S she humps Miko too sometimes but I guess her legs are too short xD) & of cos, chasing one another allllllll over the house like nobody's business ! It's a joy to see them play together :)

Last Sunday, we brought them over to East Coast Beach :D
Hmm.. it seems like Miko doesn't exactly love the sand as much as Angel do..
Still ! Miko enjoys her walk !
Saw many dogs there too, but didn't manage to take any photos becos we nvr got up close. There was this couple leashing a red & white siberian husky and carrying a baby husky which look sooooooooo cute ! We saw another black & white husky too. & two brown labs, a maltese, a schnauzer and a silky terrier who came to greet Angel & Miko .
Silly Angel pooped twice before we even reached the beach ! Lucky Miko didn't poop, otherwise we might nt have enough newspapers xP

Below are pictures of Angel & Miko at the beach ! Enjoy ! ^o^

In the car, on d way to d beach .

Reaching d beach :D

Hmm.. Angel looks kinda puney don't you think ?

OH MY... DOG !


Mommy came bck frm her grandparents house tht day & TA-DA ! SHE BROUGHT SOMETHING BCK WITH HER!! I'm nt really sure wht's going on but i'll let mommy do the explaining .

Mommy: I'll take over frm here :D

It all happened when my mom gt a photo frm her friend . It was a picture of a Japanese Spitz . My mom really like tht dog alot . She says it's cute, well-behaved & beautiful .

Thn, mom's friend told her tht Miko, the Japanese Spitz, had to find someone to adopt her as her owner could nt afford to give her the attention she needs because of some family problems tht caused them to neglect the dog. Still, Miko was their princess & they were looking for a family who really loves her and will be willing to take her in .

Because of the inconvenience as the family could nt take care of Miko anymore, thus Miko was brought over to her owner's sister's house . Much to our surprise, Miko was being fostered at where our grandparents live ! & it was even in the same block , same level !

2 days ago which was a Sunday, we visited our grandparents as well as Miko. Miko had a schnauzer friend named Button in tht house where she was being fostered .

Below are pictures of Miko & Button :

This is Button. He's so active I can't get a proper picture of him, only pic of him eating.

This is Miko :)

So, we decided to bring Miko home after all . Whn Angel saw Miko, she was totally shocked ! She started sniffing her out and chasing her around but Miko didn't really like it . She was new & frightened . She kept baring her teeth at Angel & even growled at her .

Angel was so happy , or rather puzzled, tht she couldn't finish her dinner. Greedy little Miko thn rushed into the kitchen & ate her dinner up !

Angel & Miko 1st meeting [They were chasing each other so the pictures are rather blur] :

Miko got her tail down at first , but later walked confidenly with her tail curled over her back.

Running all over the house

Miko stealing Angel's dinner ..

..while Angel stared at her

Both went to sleep after that . Angel slept with me on the bed while Miko slept with my sis on her bed .
Angel wasn't comfortable with a new creature in our house and couldn't get to slp. She kept pacing up and down on my bed and would nw & then stare at Miko while Miko sleeps. Oh, and before tht , Zacky & Jelly (the rabbits) were freaked out . They got frantic and ran everywhere.
I guessed Angel didn't close her eyes the whole night .

The next day, my maid, sis , and I , brought Angel & Miko to the park early in the morning while we sent my sis to school as well , hoping they would get along better. However, Angel went crazy and kept barking and chasing Miko . Upon reaching the park, Angel calmed down and both of them walked side by side together.

Pictures of Miko & Angel in the park:

Miko has a strong personality. I would say tht she is a little dominant. Must be the pampering from her previous owner .
When Angel was on the bench 1st, she would nt do anything. However, if Miko was placed on the bench 1st , she would growl at Angel if Angel goes near or if she's on the bench. She would show dominance over her food as well. If anyone tried to touch her or her food bowl, she would growl.

At home, it was totally chaos. We gave both of them their baths, with Angel going first. Just like Angel, Miko went insane after her bath and became very active. She leaped around & her fur flew everywhere. Next, she showed her dominance towards Angel , like she was the pack leader between her and Angel . She would go to Angel and growl at her . Angel would then back off. The worst part was whn she chased, growl and wanted to snap at Angel yesterday.

Angel fell asleep while I blew dry her hair with a hair dryer xD

My poor little Angel, didn't dare to follow me in the house anymore :( she would just hide in a corner, in fear of Miko . Miko was very people-friendly though. She greeted anyone and never bites humans .

Today, it was much better. Miko didn't really growl at Angel anymore. We showed Miko the cane whenever she tried to growl at Angel. We did nt use the cane to hit her though . When she sees the cane, she would bck off and hide under my mom's table . Angel started following me around too :) Just tht if Miko is there, she would stop .

Just like yesterday, we brought both of them to the park in the morning.

Pictures from earlier morning in the park :

This is a picture of my brother and Miko . They're quite close :) Miko loves getting hugs from him .

Angel was quite happy to be outside with Miko . She would try to play with Miko but Miko would just ignore her because Miko wasn't the playful type.

After an hour or so, we went bck home & the pooches had their paws washed .
Just like always, Angel would get her whole head wet becos she likes putting her head under the tap.

The funniest thing happened just now when Miko tried to hump Angel ! Angel was on the sofa with me , and Miko kept sniffing her and making soft whinings. I thought Miko wanted to befriend Angel so I placed Angel on the floor. Never did I expected Miko to start humping Angel ! Angel didn't knw wht was going on and just let Miko humped her for 5 secs or so . Thn , Angel wanted to get away but Miko didn't want to let her go so Angel got angry and they almost broke out into a fight .

Angel is still quite fearful of Miko .. She tries to avoid Miko but Miko wants to be her friend as she wags her tail and walks towards Angel .Is there any ways to make their relationship closer ? :(

Also, Miko is the same age as Angel , 2 yrs old (according to her owner) . I haven't gotten her certs yet but i'll be getting them soon and i'll then knw when's Miko's birthday .

&& , because Miko is now part of our family , Miko would officially share this blog with Angel ! ^^
