Me and CS watched a television program the day before (Monday) called the “Most Outrageous Pets”. It’s an eye-opener to know there are so many amazing dogs and unbelievable dog services provided outside of our Singapore. I realised there were so many doggies being part of Guinness world records holder too. I did mentioned one of them Puggy the Pekingnese Pup in my earlier post. Check out the other interesting doggies that have blown me away on the show.

But the most outstanding and memorable dog I reckon is ……
ELWOOD. He is an all American MUTT – part Chinese Crested part Chihuahua who came in as 2007 winner of the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest. He is special and unique in his way and I salute to Elwood’s owner, Karen in her efforts by giving back to society. What she has done with Elwood by spreading awareness of Homeless Animals and those with Special Needs is incontestable. She even had a book written called “Everyone Loves Elwood“. Their story touches my heart especially having the kids to see the other side of beauty. I recalled on the TV show, one of the sweet little girls said, ”Elwood should be the world’s cutest dog.” It simply melts my heart hearing that.
We Love Elwood Too!!!

Ever since our precious lele joined our family, everything which I’ve plan to do on my free time, wants to have le le involved. My weekends are priotised for her. My leave days are cater for her. It actually came to a point of wondering whether I have became obsessive towards having her.
But how can one heart not melt with her pretty looks and innocent eyes. Especially since she picked up a habit of staring at me when she wants something. Example, every evening after dinner without fail, lele will find opportunity to tell me “It’s time to bring me for a walk”. It may sound absurd. But lele will actually do a face to face eye contact on me. CS always laugh when she do that to me. And I always felt indebt to her if I do not bring her for a walk.
Quote from one of my favourite movie – Moulin Rouge ~ ” The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return. ” And every of our furkids gave us their unconditional love even when we make mistakes, met failures or lazy to bring them for a walk.
I love Le Le a lot. Lele is no longer seen as a family pet but a family member. Everyone in the family adore her. As for me, I want the best for her to be happy and healthy always. She teaches me to live my life to the fullness. She teaches me how to praise and compliment when it’s well done. And more importantly she teaches me love can be unconditional.
