The Singapore Night Festival 2013 @ Singapore Art Museum

24th August 2013
TOto was just at the beach this morning, so initially we didn't have the intention to bring him out but decide to go ahead so that TOto will be with us rather than coop at home! We will be going to The Singapore Night Festival organised by Bras Basah/Bugis PrecinctThe Singapore Night Festival 2013 seems like it is a "Pet-friendly" event because alot of the 'performances' and artworks are outdoor. There are greens everywhere for the furrykids to do their business and lawns to just sit about and relaxed with our furrykids but so sad that it was not advertised as a 'Pet friendly event'! 

And I only see ONE other furrykid in the whole event!
Anyway, alot more should be done to help promote places and events that furrykids can go along ...
Write up and photographs inside ...

TOto goes swimming @ Sembawang Beach!

And he loves it!
He just jumped in and out of the water and run about the small beach all by himself having fun! People at the beach are so amused by TOto's antics of jumping in and out of the water ...

He was so happy, it looks like he hasn't been this happy for such a long time!

We run him abit too ...
And he happily ran and ran like there is no tomorrow!

Bro and gf is with us too!

We have a really tired pooch that day ...

Our Westie TOto - Almost 2 weeks into Feeding Raw ...

Doing all the readings online, I found out that there are 2 school of thoughts here; BARF and PREY model. These 2 School of Thoughts are like "CULT" and it's rather creepy and scary, it's like; BELIEVE US DO IT or LEAVE! But I believe in the merging of 2 school of thoughts, but then it's either MY WAY or NO WAY. So whatever, TOto is mine and I feed him based on what I think is the best and afford to do for him. Ultimately its to keep him healthy, safe and BY MY SIDE always!

But so far TOto almost always has good hard poop after being on Raw, so his 'anal gland' issue hopefully is eliminated. And Daddeee observed that TOto shed lesser fur especially after a comb through, his breath is good and his 'stained' beard is clearing up. His fur is still dry and brittle, I guess somethings take times. But TOto seems to be getting more lethargic after a meal as compared to dry kibbles. I wondered is it because of the water intake making him feel so much fuller, and since he is still new to RAW maybe his digestion are working harder to produce more acid thus making TOto extremely tired?

Another very OBVIOUS observation, he is getting very 'FIT' and stouty! He have gained backed all the lost mass, he lost when in Sembawang AVA. Even grandma is calling him 'Fat'! But he is not fat, just more sturdy, manly and muscular!

Tried Chicken Drumstick, and lazy him tried to break the drumstick into 2 and swallow everything! I was like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO and bare hand pulled open his STRONG JAW and PULLED out the drumstick! I had to hold it down for him to chew it the PROPER WAY!
LAZY PIG, and he loves the CHICKEN SKIN!
Tried the same thing with the wing, ONE CRUNCH and he wants to swallow everything!

Some days he get almost "BARF" ...
I cut up the chicken meat; add in Oats, apple and yoghurt.
Every morning he get extra supplement; Fish oil and Garlic oil.
On the10th day, I let him try some chicken organs; heart, lungs and liver.
I think I added half an whole egg and also another supplement; Solidgold Seameal.
And some days he gets GIZZARDS and lotsa of them; because Gizzards are cheap and gizzards are considered muscle meat.
I allowed TOto to try chewing on a Pork Knuckle but it was frowned upon because the Prey Model do not encourage chewing and gnawing in on huge heavy bones or any bones unless its meaty raw bones. But TOto enjoys gnawing on Pork Knuckle very much! And he can spend HOURS on it ...
But the next day he had 'Constipation' from having too much bones, the look on his face when he try to 'KEK SAI' Priceless, hahaha.

Ok jokes aside, no more PORK KNUCKLES!
Plus as per advised, I shouldn't have given TOto mixed meat in the early stages of introducing TOto to raw meat; and I think she is right.
Chicken Feet next for it's Glucosamine and Chondroitin ...
And he LOVES it, TOto is a lazy PIG; chicken feet is easy that's why!

We are going into duck next ...

Our Westie TOto @ West Coast Park

Where oh where are we going today?
West side of Singapore!
Yeah its a long drive, because WCP is very far away and with the traffic Jam, it's terrible!
Singapore is a small island with ALOT of cars ...
When TOto see this big patch of green grass, he automatically give us the "Mammeee, fetch?", look!

He was sooooooooooooooooo HAPPY!

Look at that satisfied face!

TOto thinking,"Mammeee can come here EVERYDAY!?"
Mammeee wishes too, but it's too far from our place ...

Let's enjoy while we can ...
It's a bit disappointing when Macdonald don't accept pets; even outdoor.
Drove to Pasir Panjang to collect a bottle of Solidgold seameal and wanted to go visit the Dog Park at WCP but TOto was too zoomed out. He is so tired, he just wants to go home.
A tired out poochie!

Clean, Green and NEW Sembawang Beach!

I cannot remember the last time I come to Sembawang beach but Sembawang beach used to be my Childhood most visited beach. And it used to be very dirty, one of the dirtiest beach in Singapore!
We park at the 2nd carpark and it was some distance walk away ...

TOto loved the ground, and kept wanting to ROLL on the ground!

Look at him, he soooooooooooooooo HAPPY!

I want to come and BBQ there!

Look so clean and peaceful!

Not much people here on a weekday?

Cats GUARDING the end of the Jetty ...

We felt in Love with the beach, and I suspect we be visiting here very often especially with the FREE PARKING and there is a large green area where we can run TOto ...
Another successful day out!
