From my previous post, You dawgs are probably wondering what is this O Incident? I will now give out the full name of the incident, it is THE OIL DRINKING INCIDENT! Yes you read it right the first time, I the pooped eater, urine drinker, tissue eater, underwear stealer have now added another name tot he list, oil drinker. Why you would think make me want to drink oil and what kind of oil is it exactly? Lets just say that I got curious about the nature of that yellow shiny liquid and decide to investigate and as to what kind of oil, I drank lamp oil, the kind that the two-legged use for the prayer alter.
Z wasn't home when it happen and when Mom found me, I was covered in oil and have finished the entire bowl of oil, there was about half left. Mom went into a semi-hysteric and started phoning Z asking her what to do. Apparantly Z doesn't know what to do either so she rushed home to take me to the vet. At this point I was feeling quite happy with myself until I started feeling queasy and my stomach was rumbling. So I started drinking lots of water and puked up most of the oil, twice.
Mom became fully hysteric when I refuse to eat my dinner. I mean I was still feeling oily and disgusted and the two-leggeds want me to eat? They are weird that way. So they pack me off to the clinic for a check up to make sure that I'm alright and when we arrive and they told the receptionist what I did, the vet came and advice that I be kept for observation and to be put on a IV drip because they do not know what other chemicals are present in the oil and if I'm affected I may get pancretitis. The problem is that at he clinic they do not have nurse who stay overnight and if I'm to be kept there I will be all alone at night. Z and my mom couldn't bare the thought of me being all alone so they pack me off to the Animal Hospital instead which have 24 hour care. When I arrive, the technicians shaved off some of my fur and then proceed to stick sharp objects into me! If cause I protested, very loudly and violently and Z who is also afraid of sharp objects didn't dare to look. They stole my blood and then I was put on a drip. Sigh... It was not a pleasant experience and the worst part was I refused to pee and kept holding in my pee, because I will only pee on my pee tray if it is inside my cage. Yes I am weird that way. I actually hold on to my pee till 11pm which is like about 6 hours before I finally relent and peed. At least the two-legged there were really nice to me, they played with me and kept me company. The down side is that my family is not there with me, I have sharp object stuck into me and the dreaded lampshade is back on because I attempted to remove the sharp object by myself!
The vet told Z that she has seen worst cases, there was a Labrador who drank motor oil but thankfully he did not die from it! The next morning Z and my dad came to bring me home. The vet said that I was fine and just to bring me to the vet for a blood test in a few days to make sure there's nothign else wrong with me. Before I actaully went home, I was further subject to more torture in the form of ear cleaning and nail clipping. Jeeez.. This two-leggeds just don't know when to stop do they. To pay them back, I poo in the car on the way back, nice and oily poo. That kinda drove dad mad and Z frantic as she ended up having to clean up my oily poo and as a result both of us ended up with poo on our bodies. Haaa....
Well, so that's the story of the O Incident. I was put on a special diet from the vet for 4 days and was not allowed any treats due to my weak stomach. The moral of the story is never to attempt to drink oil in any form least you'll be subjected to torture by sharp objects and a serious lack of treats. Here are some photos of me after I was brought home from the hospital.
Argh!!! It itches! Get the bandage off me!!!
Yes are you happy now that you've put it on me?
Yes I know, I have a very provocative way of sleeping.
The Two-leggeds find this funny, I can't understand why.
Please stop pointing that thing at me.
Z is in the midst of making the Christmas Cards for this year's exchange! She'll post up some prodeuctuion photos soon. Being the smart dawg that I am I have delegated all the work to Z, Since she's the one with who can safely handle all the tools. All of you wonderful dawgs who have been keeping up with my life's journey (although its still a relatively short one) will be recieving a card from me! I would like to thank all of you dawgs and cats in advance for taking time off to have a peek at my life. I would have like to sent to more of you but not all of my friends participated in the exchange. Till next time dawgs!

I know I've been away for quite a while and frankly, I blame Z. She's been going around saying she's been too busy with work and making Christmas present for V and V's sister and making a birthday present for our dad (Which may I add are ALL in December!) that she hardly have time to help me update my bloggie. I mean what can be more interesting than helping me post my bloggie ? This two-legged really needs to set her priorities straight.
Well I managed to bug her enough to at least type this short post to let all you guys know that I'm still alive and kicking, although due to a certain O Incident I nearly wasn't. Z promise she'll help me post abut the O Incident later when she gets back from work and to post some after pictures of he O Incident. Stay Tune!
I promise to keep my two-legged in hand from now. Just because I slacked a bit they get complacent.

Whew, that took some time! I got hungry by the time i finish all the question and then I realised that there's actually only 6 questions. Hahaha.. The 7th Question must have gotten lost some where. Oh well, I now tag 7 of my dawggies pals to do this tag.

Sorry for being away for so long. Z's excuse is she can't find time to help me blog even though she's ALWAYS in front of the computer. Anyway, I managed to put her through a guilt trip and here I am again to put up some more interesting stuff on my bloggie.
Z has been cooking up something real yummy! A Fish Pie! Unfortunately I don't have a share in it because Z thinks it'll be too unhealthy for me!! I bet she just wants it all for herself. Here are some photos of it.
This is what's inside of the pie before Z pours the cream over and add the mash potatoes. Cod, Steam Broccoli and Boiled Eggs cut into quarters.
This is the end product after Z has taken a piece out of it. Argh!!! I wish i had a slice too.. What a meanie Z is.
And while I was helping out Z to prepare the pie, I happen to peep into the fridge and guess what I saw? The Devil, in disguise as a Fruit!
Argh!! Check out how freaky it is!
Look at it! It has a face! Its as if someone cut off the heads of little devils and then mummified them into this!!!!
We don't really celebrate Halloween over in Singapore, but can you imagine going for trick or treating and find one of this in your treat bag? Creepy....
The weird Devil fruit frightened me so much I went to hide in Z's comforter. Maybe if I stay still the creepy Devil Fruit won't come and haunt me.
Then it Z came to me and explain that its not heads of little mummified devils but they are actually some sort of a water chestnut that can only be bought around the Chinese Lunar 8 month! How weird is that!
Oh Well.. Its just one of those great mysteries of life. I shouldn't ponder so much into it and just lie back and relax in Z's comforter. Heee....

Sorry for the lack of posting and its all Z's fault because she's too busy out working at a new part-time job, supposedly to earn money to go visit V in LA in December. And, that is if her Dad allows it. So anyway, I was complaining to her that since she works so much now, she has no time for the very important Me. I mean who am I to bully at home, and who is going to feed me treats and play with me. Our conversation went like this:
Hugo: You are working so much you hardly have time for me! What about me?
Z: Don't be silly Hugo, you still have 4 other people in the house for you to boss around.
Hugo: But its not the same they don't bring me for walks!!
Z: As if you want to go for walks, the last time we went for a walk what happen? You took 5 steps then flop down onto your belly and refuse to walk and I have to physically pick you up. Oh and how many times you did that? At least 10! In like a 10 metres stretch of road!
Hugo: Hmmmm... I was eh just doing push ups, yup push up.
That was the end of a rather disappointing act to get Z to spend more time with me. But the good thing is I've got my Mom (who is Z's Mom as well) wrap around my little paw (even Z agrees) and there's even pictures to proof how completely under my spell my Mom is. Jeez... This two-leggeds are so easy to win over sometimes.
This photos were taken on the same day which I did the "Push Up Stunt" and Mom wa so worried that there's sometihing wrong with me. Z decided to try and take me on a walk again, and at the very mention of the word "walk" this is what I did.
I went to lie down beside my mom and gave her my paw, pretending to be pathetic.
Mom: Why? Whta's wrong baby? Your paw pain pain izzit?
She fell for it! I lifted my head and gave Z a smug look. Hah!
Mom: You okie already baby? Want to go for a walk?
Ohhh.. Almost blew it by trying to be smug, better lie low and act pathetic.
Mom: Its okie baby, Mummy sayang you..
Sneaking a peek at Z to make sure that she's not trying anything funny.
Pretending to be pathetic has its advantages, I get a good massage from my Mom!
Mom: Mummy massage your head for you.
Don't you all just love my cute little smile? My mom loves it when I smile at her!
Mom: So cute, you smiling at Mummy?
Hee Hee Hee, My Mom has completely fallen for my superb acting. I should win an award for this!
All this acting is making me sleepy....
As I lie there, I contemplated getting into the show Business and have a career as a Professional Actor.
Then I realised that its just too much work, being an amateur gets me my treats and massages as well. All this acting is tiring, I should go for a nap now...

So here I was enjoying myself on Z's bed when suddenly, Z turn to be me and say "Hugo! Let's go for your grooming!"
Grooming? What grooming why wasn't I informed of this. I must say I hate grooming, really really dislike it. Because I have to be motionless and have strange people handling me. I hate it. I'm a really sensitive dawg you know.
So they pack me off in my bag and then Z decide to take a photo of me and my PA cause she aid I looked very funny in my too small bag!
We got into a cab, and arrived at the groomers (urgh..). As I've told you before I'm really sensitive so when they groomer was grooming me, I got worried and snapped at her. That resulted in both Z and the groomer telling me I'm a bad boy. I'm sorry that I'm afraid of pain (even if its one of those almost not painful kinda pain, especially if its inflicted by two-leggeds)
This was me before grooming. You can see how much fur I've accumulated!
While I was getting tortured, there's a maltese who was completelyun aware of my pique. Look at how deeply asleep this dawg is. Her tongue was sticking out!
This is me at home, after 3 hours of standing up and not moving. All that to make the two-leggeds happy. Jeez...
And because Z felt bad for having made me stand still for so long, so got these for me! Yipppie! More treats are always welcome.
Z also decide to change to a bigger collar for me. It seems I've grown too big for my little blue one, so Z upgraded me to a bigger Red Collar, which according to her, compliments my fur.
What do you Dawgs reckon?
Sorry for the bad photo, this was the only one that Z was able to take, because apparantly I move too much.
Here I am back on Z's bed getting my well-deserved rest.

So what happen was that yesterday, Z and my Dad finally took me for my much awaited walk, not at the usual reservoir but just a small park near our home. We went pass the house of the aforesaid old lady, and her family (and her) were out at the front landing chit chatting. Seeing that I'm an extremely adorable puppy, everyone flock to me and calling me cute, and they were all wishing that they have doggies who were as cute as me. So that scary lady got jealous and started snapping at me which resulted in her being put away by her owner. I was even kind enough to go visit her but she wasn't too happy and bit my face! It was a good thing I had so much hair so I was fine. Then, there I was basking in the praises of the two-leggeds and the next thing I know Chocolate has somehow escape from her house and started attacking me! It was a good thing her owner managed to tug her away fast enough or she could have seriously injure me. Thankfully I suffer no injury other then a bruised ego. Chocolate's owner was sooooo scary, she hit Chocolate so hard that even Z flinch and then drag her back to the house by her collar! What a firece owner!
Z didn't have a camera with her so she had to surf the web to find a photo that looks like Chocolate. This is what she looks like! (This is not her, just another doggy named Sophie who looks like Chocolate)
The good thing that came out of this is that Chocolate's owner felt sorry for me and brought out salmon treats for me! Ahhh Heaven! Although Z was being a spoiled sport and saying that I'm fine and needed to be discipline by another dog anyway (what cow dung!). Then I go on to win the hearts of the two-leggeds by performing tricks for the treats! Hahahahahaha.. Two-leggeds are such sucker for tricks! A couple of "Give Paws", "Rollovers" and "Say Pleases" and I have them in the palm of my paw!
This is a photo of the adorable me resting at home after my ordeal!
From the comments of my previous post, Huskee ask if Z's phone bill have exploded yet (for those who are new to my bloggie, if you've read my earlier posting you'll understand why) and the answer is a BIG NO! Why you may ask and the answer is that Z and V ended up using this online service known as Skype which enables them to call each other and have video conference for free! Wonderful idea if I may say. (At this precise moment, Z is actually waiting for V to wake up so that she can Skype him, so I only have a small window of opportunity to blog)
That's all for today Dawggies! I'll post again as soon as possible!

On another note, Z has been promising to take me for a long walk but have yet to execute that promise so I decide to do some stuff to get her attention. I decide to eliminate by installment. Yes you heard me the first time, since I'm a house trained dawggie, I have my personal pee tray in the house so I dun have to hold it in when I want to do my business, and since its IN the house, the two-leggeds have to wash it everytime i poop. So to get their attention, I poop in installment, when they least expect it, in small small bits and eat my poop! Yes I love to eat my poop, i reckon its some type of delicacy! For some reason it drives the two-legged wild! *Hee Hee Hee* So far I have made them wash my pee tray at least 10 times and have managed to eat my poop only about 2! What an accomplishment.....

THIS is the object of my Desire!
Introducing my beloved MILKBONE or more affectionately known as my "Bone Bone"!
One of my favourite chewing spot is on Z's bed, see how the green sheets bring out my gorgeous colour. So first I get myself comfy with Bone Bone.
Then I sniff it to make sure it IS my Bone Bone (you never know, it might be some weird toy/object masquerading as my Bone Bone)
Its Bone Bone time!
Stop it! I'm shy, why you keep taking my photo?
Alright that's it will you stop it already and let me chew in peace.

A Dog's Purpose (from a 6-year old).
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolf hound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle. I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home. As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience. The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what wa s going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, 'I know why.' Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. He said, 'People are born so that they can learn how to live a good Life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?' The Six-year-old continued, 'Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long.'
Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy..
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Never pretend to be something you're not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.
ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY!
First and foremost I must say a huge thank you to all the wonderful comments that you dawgs have left for us and sorry for not posting in such a long time. Z finally came back form her trip. (V has flown away, a few hours ago to LA California) And Z's back with some peace offering to appease my wounded little heart and for leaving me for such along time (Z - he was so upset he cried for a long time)
A bag of treats!
and... a Cuz toy!
I must say I really love the toy! It bouncy, its orange and it squeaks! I have been carrying it around the house the whole time. I guess I'll forgive her now that she's so nice to me (Z -yeah right you were so happy to see me your tail wont stop wagging), I am a very forgiving little dawg!

This is the first award that I have ever received in my entire life! I want to give a huge Thank You to The Desert Pups for giving this award to me. At this point in my life, given that my Z is so down, it is really a huge encouragement and a pleasant surprise. It really lifted Z's spirit and she even gave me extra belly rubs!
I will like to nominate the following dawggies and also a Big Thank You for all the encouragement, it really helps!

Link the person you received your award from.
Nominate seven other blogs.
Put links of those blogs on yours.
Leave a message on the blogs that you've nominated.
And Z would like to leave a word with all you wonderful dawggies out there.
Z - Firstly I would like to say thank you to all of you who have left me encouragement and word of advice, it is a very hard and trying time for me and I have to admit that I have neglected Hugo, but he has been good to me, playing with me still, wagging his tail and giving me kisses. I especially want to say a thank you to Huskee's Mom for her encouragement.
That's is all for this week, I won't be posting till next week at least as Z will be out of town with V for the weekend. See you when I see you!
Licks and Leaps,
Z (and I) want to thank all of you for the encouragement that was given and that it really helped. She's calm down more now although she still hugged me and leak salty water, but i lick them away and she hugged me more and kissed me, so I guess I'm doing something right. She told me that V will be leaving soon (next week) and if i can just let her spent whatever remaining time she has with V, She'll be all mine after next week. I think its a pretty good trade off, although I would miss V too, he such a fun two-legged!
I won't be able to blog over the weekend as Z will be out of town with V. But rest assured that I will try to lift Z's spirit so that she'll bounce back and help me do my bloggie soon. Meanwhile I'll leave you with a video of a baby me "geraming" when I was younger. If you're wondering, geram means being frustrated over something (in this case my toys), Z was playing with me and V was the cameraman!
If you are wondering what's the shouting about at the end, its Z yelling at me cause I peed on the floor and V was so entralled by me that he forgot to continue aiming the camera at me.

Sorry that I've not posted for a while Z had not been able to pull herself together to help me blog. There had been some terribly sad news for Z (and me as well) as V, her two-legged Beloved (I'm her OTHER beloved) will be going away to US for a year to work and to prepare for when Z goes over. So Z have been leaking lots and lots of salty water and in her words "falling apart" and "becoming a total wreak" whatever that means. I've tried to cheer her up by licking up her salty water and staying by her side, but she just hug me and cry some more. I wished that there's something I could do for her to make her feel better.
She's been with V for 4 years! (That's longer then I have been alive!) As much as they love each other, V says that he has to do this for their future. I'll miss him too, he's always a nice sport and I love nibbling and licking his ears cause he's so ticklish and have really soft soft ears (he's very ticklish so its very funny). I tried to play with him when he came to visit yesterday but he was very sad too and didn't want to play. I hope things can get better for them and that they'll be able to adjust to life without each other for a while (Z - Its not a while its an entire years, its so long..)
Meanwhile life has been dull for me since Z is busying leaking and haven't had the energy to play with me and I've been missing out on her love and treats (though I did get pineapples from Dad after dinner). All my dear dawggie friends, do help me to cheer them on (for my sake so that Z will go back to being herself)
I'll end here with a shot of us at a happier time.

This is me, taken at the shop I was bought.
Me : Hmmm.. what's going on? Who re this two-leggeds?
This is me on my very first day home!
Me : Is that toy for me?
My first time in my cage, can you see my purple ball and chew bone?
Me: Are you going to play with me?
Playing with the purple ball, which is actually a fruit stuffie, passion fruit stuffie to be exact.
What a long day, its time to curl up for bed now.
Me asking to go out. Look how small I used to be, of cos I'm still small now.
Me: I'm awake now, you can let me out now.
As you can see from the photos, I was a very skinny puppy. I was coughing very badly when I first arrived and when Z brought me to the VET, I was diagnosed with scabies and had fluid in my lungs. I had to put on so much medication and test that Z was really worried. I used to have very bad coughs, especially at night, which resulted in me waking up every few minutes to cough my lungs out. Z could never bare to listen to me cough and to see me shivering in the dark alone. Z would come and lie beside me stroking me, comforting me and tell me its alright and slowly lulling me back to sleep. Once during a very bad bout of coughing she even squeeze herself into my cage to hold me till I felt better. So.... for the first time in my bloggie, instead of insulting Z I'm going to say it. I LOVE YOU Z! Thank you so much for being there for me!
Paw Script: I'll go back to insulting the two-legged in my next post.
