tick bomb

 That's just a fraction of the ticks we found on Zeus this morning. Mummy spent the whole morning shaving Zeus to get rid of the dense fur around his tick-susceptible areas - ears, legs, paw pads. And sure enough many ticks came crawling out. There were so many and mummy couldn't kill them all with Dermisil. They kept crawling out of the paper towel. Finally she decided to dab the paper towel with Carrington's solution, and the buried ticks began to die.

New friends and old ones

Pebbles and Zeus
Zeus had a fantastic weekend (we hope). Well at least it was almost entirely centered on him. On Saturday we brought him to K9 Kulture, a dog cafe somewhere along Bukit Timah. It was no surprise he loves that place. He goes crazy over all the dogs, running around, smelling them, etc. It was there where he met Pebbles, who strolled in a little after 4pm. Pebbles is about 11 months old, and the two of them seem to get along very well, smelling and play biting, play mounting each other. After a good 2 hours at least, when it was time to leave, Pebbles owners exchanged contacts with us, and invited us to his 1st birthday. Yayy! Now Zeus has a new friend!

Visiting Thor and trying to rid Zeus of ticks

We paid a visit to Thor over the weekend and he seemed especially happy to see us. His owner wasn't around (she keeps forgetting her appointments) so we were getting worried. But she finally got someone to let us in. He has put on weight and seems okay. We miss Thor and hope he's getting enough attention because his new owner seems busy lately.

Thor and Zeus at Coastes, Sentosa. They both love it.
Apologies for the delay in blogging. Just a few quick updates. Boss is recovering nicely and seems his usual self. We have left his pen permanently open, so he's free to run about as he wishes. Apparently Boss is very happy with that and he dashes about doing Binkies (happy dances) at night.
