Beautiful Saturday

The sky is blue, the sun is bright and hot, and the air is fresh and clean!

We decided to do a little bit of sunbathing.

Fingers and paws crossed that the haze does not return and we’ll get to keep this nice clean weather! So far it’s been 4 good days of clean air.

Goodbye to the Haze

This week started off pretty bad. The haze reached a hazardous level that you could actually see the smoke in front of you and it would make your eyes burn. My humans went out with face masks and even had to use the N95 grade particulate respirator!

20130628-223452.jpg
What is that? Can I eat it?

My human found something better than a standard respirator. A beagle ear mask!!

20130628-223938.jpg
It’s soft, filters dust, and most importantly it has the addictive smelly beagle stink 🙂

It started raining late Tuesday evening though, and the rain chased the haze away! We could see clear blue skies on Wednesday, and by Thursday, the air was back to a healthy level. I started to go out and poo more regularly too.

20130628-224129.jpg
Hey we can go out now and play fetch, right?

20130628-224216.jpg
Mom, aren’t we going out?? What are you doing still sitting there like that!

My humans decided to feed me green beans because I’ve been constantly hungry and constantly begging for food. They think that green beans are healthy, low calorie and can fill me up. My take? They are yummy but still Not Enough!! I need more!

20130628-224429.jpg
My current diet. Chicken, yogurt, carrots and some green beans.

I still feel hungry after my meals. Them humans call me the bottomless appetite. Sometimes, Pig. Oh well. A beagle’s gotta be a beagle, and a beagle’s job is to eat eat eat!

I got a bath today and I’m not happy about it. So I got bribed with a nice rawhide bone after sitting quietly through my bath.

After a long day, I like to watch TV…..

But TV sometimes makes me sleepy…..

Pet World Malaysia 2013

My humans went to this pet expo today but they didn’t bring me along 😦 It was held in a shopping mall and not very pet-friendly (despite being a pet expo). They had rules like no pets allowed inside the mall out of the exhibition center, dog entrance only via loading bay (which is quite inconvenient to go through), no dogs allowed on the carpet area, etc etc. It was so much easier to bring a small dog around in a bag but too bad I’m much too huge for a cute little bag, plus I am far too hyperactive to be carried around (not to mention heavy too, hee hee hee!!)

Well, at least they brought back heaps of goodies!!

20130623-163005.jpg
Most importantly, TREATS!!!

I got a new kong ball too…..since I chewed a hole in my brand new squeaky ball last week, my humans decided that I can have no other toys except the black kongs.

20130623-163202.jpg
Trying to tear my new ball apart…..

My humans also wanted to share this adorable photo of a handsome Saint Bernard they met at the expo. His tongue is so long!!!! We actually met him at another expo at the park last year and he is still the same ol huge and drooling giant.

20130623-163411.jpg
Isn’t he handsome?

The haze is getting so bad, pharmacies are sold out of masks.

20130623-163625.jpg
What is that? Can I eat it??

As for me, I don’t need a mask……and I’m always happily sniffing the air outside. Although I do start making choking sounds afterwards…….

20130623-163755.jpg
I may not have a long tongue like a Saint Bernard, but I do have a very cute tongue too!! 🙂

This is the next dog event that I hope to attend:

20130623-164226.jpg
At least this event is 100% dog friendly, held outdoors and full of fun activities (and treats) for all sorts of doggies. It is organized every year by the veterinary faculty of a local university here.

Chicken soup for a hungry beagle’s soul

The haze has gotten worse and visibility is much lower today. You can even smell the smoke indoors even though all the windows and doors are closed. People are starting to wear masks when they go outside.

Since we’re all cooped up at home and can’t go out….. I spend most of the time sleeping, looking for treats, and harassing my sister Spring.

My human mom cooked ginger chicken soup for lunch yesterday and I got to have some of it! Although I usually don’t have lunch (I only get 2 meals a day).

20130623-092906.jpg
I only got to have the soup with veggies in it……meat excluded 😦

I lapped it all up and licked the bowl super clean! Mom only gave me some chicken after my dinner. Spring on the other hand didn’t like the soup. She wouldn’t touch it but when I wanted to help her finish it, she growled at me and won’t let me near her bowl!! Selfish thing…… She later finished it just because she didn’t want me to have it……

I didn’t have enough so I went to the kitchen and kept barking! But them naughty humans just ignored me….. poor hungry me 😦

20130623-093504.jpg
Fat? What do you mean fat? I don’t see no belly…….

20130623-093553.jpg
I am le professional beggar! Give me ze foodz nowwww……

I love to make my humans scratch me……

20130623-093757.jpg
Ooh yes that’s the spot! Ahhh scratch it!!

I wonder what we’re having for dinner tonight………..

Season of the haze

The weather has been bad lately – thick, smokey haze everywhere. My humans are sick from the haze and I don’t get my daily walks lately to avoid breathing in all the smoke and getting lung cancer.

Picture from themalaysianinsider

This horrible haze is caused by peat fires in Indonesia and worsened by the southwest monsoon season. Plantations in Indonesia clear land by doing open burning, and during the southwest monsoon season the wind direction directs all the smoke up north to neighbouring countries like us.

It’s much worse for our neighbour, Singapore. See this comparison! In a few weeks time we’d probably be in the same soup. Or smoke.

I would stay at home and play fetch indoors…….but I chewed a large hole in my squeaky ball and it was confiscated 😦

So I’ll act cute and adorable instead……

20130621-224830.jpg
This is how I like to lie on my human’s lap and ask for attention…… Actually, I’m trying to watch TV upside down…..

20130621-224932.jpg
Playing with the sofa covers……this is so fun. I can hide in here and no one will see me.

20130621-225035.jpg
Shamelessly asking for belly rubs…. What? You didn’t know? Beagles have no shame…..now give me more!!! More!!!!

20130621-225205.jpg
Getting ready for bed……come on, I need my belly rubs now!

20130621-225314.jpg
I’m telling my naughty human to turn off the lights but she just loves to snap my grumpy, ugly face when I’m so sleepy…..

20130621-225435.jpg
Turn it off and go to bed please…….do you know what time it is?!

Humans………just can’t let me sleep in peace……..! Someone please pass them a sleeping pill…… anybody!

The haze is so bad I don’t even want to go out to poo! Someone please tell Indonesia to stop burning or we are all gonna choke in this smoke…….
