Salad Bar

Togo at his fave spot in the garden - the Togo Fresh Salad Bar.
Can you spot him in this pic?

Sock & Scrunchie - Out!

This morning Togo's poop had a revolting sock and a shredded scrunchie in it. We've been looking out for these since Togo the washing machine ate them. It's been 4 anxious days, but now at least they're out.

Disgusting, you say?. Hey, at least you didn't have to clean it up. (Neither did I, haha. Togo Daddy did. Thanks, dear.)

Rubber Toy

Togo the washing machine pampered dog gets a new toy.

Rubber Toy, RM 8.90 from Pet Lovers Centre, Ikano.

"Yippie! Something new to chew and destroy!"

"Yumm. The rope is tastier than the toy."

"Yummy yummy rope."

And one hour later Togo has chewed the rope off the toy. Haha.


Togo looking very macho with his chain.

We're getting him used to having it around his neck, so that he doesn't kick up a fuss when we start chaining him up soon. I would rather not chain him up, but it's a necessary evil, especially when we intend to take him along for overnight stays in other people's homes.

Togo the Washing Machine

This is Togo the dog.
This is Togo, sitting beside the laundry basket, pretending to be a washing machine.

This is a sock.
This is a sock, its partner fell off the clothes line and disappeared into Togo the washing machine.

This is a soap.
This is the soap which Togo the washing machine munched later.

Arrghh. *pull hair*
You think I'm a bad dog-mommy? Ha, and I've not told you about Togo and the third scrunchie yet..

Mr. Postman

The postman stopped by our house to deliver a registered mail today.

Togo came bounding out with me as I went to sign for the letter. He stuck his nose out of the gate, looking at this curious thing on wheels with bags of yummy looking letters.

"Macam serigala ya. Cantik. Ini anjing ke, dah campur serigala?" asked Mr.Postman.
[Looks like a wolf. Nice. Is he a dog, or a wolf cross-breed?"]

After the customary 'sign here, here and here' is done, Mr. Postman handed me the letter and remarked "Tak nyalak pun. Bukan macam anjing lain". [Didn't bark at all. Very unlike other dogs."]

Hahaha. For a man used to being barked, growled and yapped at, Togo must seem odd.

Togo (big) Baby

I love this shot of me cradling Togo, he looks so adorable.
(and because it's a rare shot where he's not trying to munch me!)

I've hidden my thunder thighs behind the white clouds, haha.

Sleeping on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Formula One

Togo says:

Even the lousiest dog has a better personality (and ethics) than him.

Togo the Wolf

Togo pretending to be a wolf. Haha.

I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house down!

We get a lot of 'Wah, look like wolf' and 'Macam serigala ya' when we take Togo out walking.

Togo visited the vet today.

He got his vaccinations jab (ouch) and anti-flea jab (ouch, ouch).

There were the usual adventures in getting to and back from the clinic, Togo being not used to car-rides yet. The most notable must be Togo letting out a giant smelly fart while we were stuck in the jam. Gag. Eeeuuuww.

Breakfast. Gone.

Togo the naughty dog stole breakfast from the table this morning.

He tried and tried to grab the peanut buttered bread from the kitchen counter while I was preparing it, despite constantly being pushed away and smacked.

I placed the dish further in, out of his reach (I thought), turned my back for one second and whoosh... Togo made a mighty lunge and bit a chunk off the peanut buttered bread.

Hoho. There goes Mr.Gila's breakfast.

Since nobody is going to eat the bread Togo's bitten, we gave it to him. Togo happily chomped it down. I put the rest of the breakfast on the dining table for me to eat later.

Togo the greedy dog then tried and tried and tried to grab the peanut buttered bread from the dining table. I moved it further out of his reach (I thought), but after ten minutes of determined trying he got his teeth into a pair of the peanut buttered bread.

Hish. There goes my breakfast.

Not wanting to risk me taking away his 'prize', Togo gobbled the two slices of bread whole. What a pig.

I threw him out after that. He's been whining ever since. But that's what you get for eating my breakfast, bad dog.

Oh, did I mention all this happened right after Togo has gulped down his own heavy breakfast?

4 months young

Togo at 4 months.
He's getting so huge! I can barely carry him now.

Note his cheek fur is growing more handsomely puffed up.
Togo is starting to resemble his (dog) daddy.

Tissue Togo

Yesterday we came back to find quite a scene.

Naughty Togo managed to get hold of a roll of tissue, and had a wonderful time with it. This might just be half of the lot, I suspect there's a whole wad of tissue in his tummy now.

And does Togo have to say about the absolute mess?

"Teehee! That was fun!"

Rope Toy

Togo the extremely spoiled puppy got a new toy.

Rope Toy (Large), RM 8.65, from Pet Lovers Centre, Ikano.

Just a bunch of twisted rags, you say? True. But considering so many of our rugs are torn and half eaten, I'd rather Togo have something he's allowed to chew and destroy.

Mmmm.. Togo like new toy.

Good for tug games. I like it because it keeps him from biting ME. Haha.

Pull, Togo, pull! So fun!

Office Puppy

Togo is a very attached pup, he tails me around everywhere I go.
Even when I'm at work, he insists on keeping close. When he's not dozing, he's usually chewing the table legs.

Tales of the furry, scrunchie-eating, lovable tyrant.
