Sembawang Animal Quarantine Station Day 02 - Confirmed released 8/8

- A Video to be uploaded soon -
Last night at Changi Quarantine was considered to be 1st night, so today will be his 2nd day Quarantine but first night at Sembawang. We heard he was drove in this morning. When we arrived, he was ON TOP of his crate, and there was a patch of water/urine in the cubicle. There was 'poop' at the outdoor area too, and flies was hovering over it. It was a pathetic sight! TOto daren't even jump down to greet us, because the urine patch was right underneath him! We quickly get the uncle to help us clean the room up, I felt so sorry for TOto because TOto is a CLEAN FREAK!

Right after, we put down our bags, we quickly brought TOto out to the small dog run first ...

my ABCD is back!

It is really a very difficult 4 months!
Everything, every situation, every scenario just reminds me of him.
Plus because we are not there with him, the process of applying to send him back becomes doubly difficult We have to rely TOTALLY on his guardian. 
We are really grateful, he agrees to helps us unconditionally!

But we are OVER it and TOto is back here in ONE GOOD piece!
When it is really ALL OVER, I will definitely blog about my 'FULL' experience with TOto to help out others who are with the same predicament!

When we picked him up, he is dirty, smelly and very hungry!
but ...
I love you TOto ...
Will update soon!
Especially his 9 days in Quarantine ...

Reunion SOON!

I hasn't seen TOto since April when we left USA, and for some 'fxxkup' reason we couldn't go back!

And we have been arranging for TOto to come back to us ever since; and it is such a long, torturing process. First of all SINGAPORE AVA regulations are written in such a way, a normal HUMAN beings won't be able to understand. And 2ndly their requirement are so strict, you think their requirements will KILL your dog! But for the sake of our precious baby we had to endure through all these torments so that we can be together as a family unit again ...

And after 2 months plus of torment, we finally see some lights ...
For some unknown reason the officer of AVA informed us that there are "non-aircon" room available for late July. From the beginning we were informed that the earliest date that will be available will be in September. SO you can imagine the 'ECSTASY' we are in when we hear that there is a available slot in July!

We visited Singapore AVA Sembawang Quarantine Station the next day, to take a look at the; hygiene, noise level, cleanliness and size of the non-aircon room. We want to make sure that TOto will be comfortable in the room to 'tolerate' Singapore weather for at least 10days!


The staffs were very friendly and is open to us visiting the Quarantine rooms. We went in and was pleasantly surprise that there isn't much noticeable odors, and the noise level were surprisingly quite low too. We visited some 'fan' kennels in the USA before, and the smell and noise level were terrible. And we realized these 'non-aircon' basic kennel has a door that can open to go outdoor (caged). So these let out the 'smell' and the 'noise', plus each 'room' has its own fan. The overall whole experience was pleasant.


Plus when we see this CUTE Husky Baby, we are convinced!
If a Husky can survive in a non-aircon room, TOto can survive ...
I KNOW HE CAN!


The 'walking' area looks clean and well maintained too.
Looking at AVA website's, we thought that we can only visit TOto for 15minutes each time.
We misunderstood the terms on their website again.

The 15 minutes mean if you walk/play with the dog OUTSIDE the room, then you are limited to only 15 minutes. But if you stayed in the room with your dog you can stay as long as the Visiting Hour is allowed. And usually it is 2 hours from 4-6pm on the weekday and 4 hours 2-6pm on a Saturday. No visiting on Sundays, Eve Public Holiday and on Public Holidays. But Collection can be done everyday!

You can bring anything to be place with you furkids, there is no restriction and 30minutes is allowed in the Grooming room! Daddeee was saying he wants to bring a PORTABLE COOLER for TOto, hahahaha ~


We contacted our Agent in the USA asap and tried to book a flight for him. And our agent mistakenly tried to book us on SQ but from our knowledge any type of TERRIER isn't allowed on SQ, not even silky terriers!

So after back and forth of calling to the USA agent & after filling up, scanning and emailing of paperwork back and forth. The whole process lasted about 4-5 hours including the waiting etc ...

TOto is booked on the Lufthansa flight and will touch down SG on the 29 July 2013 (2 months earlier than we had anticipated.) But because Lufthansa doesn't fly on a regular weekend, TOto has to fly one day earlier and be 'boarded' in frankfurt Animal Louge for 30 hours before adjoining his journey back home again ...

TOto is strong, I know he can survive all these, and come back to me.
I really REALLY REALLY miss him alot ...
Can't wait to have you in my arms again ...

A few more photos from TOto's Uncle K!
So WILD living with UNCLE K!
UNCLE K pamper him NO END ...
Hahaha he is CONFIRM ours!
Just looking at his photos makes me want to SMILE ...
