Year of the Wood Horse

The lunar new year begins tomorrow, and so the long holidays have begun for many people. My sister Spring and I are currently vacationing at the pet sitter while my human goes back to her family across the sea. I would love very much to go with her but unfortunately the only way there is by air and there is also the rabies vaccination requirement and 6 month quarantine period! I will just have to miss her for a week!

What do you mean this bag is too small? I can totally fit in here!

We got to stay in the 600 sq ft suite at the pet sitter’s which has a dog house and private garden all to ourselves! And lots of cuddles from our lovely pet sitter too.

Checking out the garden….

Gimme food now!!!

This place has many interesting scents indeed!

Having my butt sniffed by a handsome boy also called Cookie. Cookie the miniature schnauzer. He totally likes me.

Mmmm….. I can smell what you had for dinner last night! Chicken and a hint of bacon treats. Yum…..

We love this place and would totally recommend it to our fur pals in KL/Selangor if your humans ever need to ditch you for a vacation out of town 🙂

The big garden and dog house.

This Chinese New Year will be the year of the wood horse. Chinese believe that the 2nd day of the lunar new year is the birthday of all dogs, so on this day humans must take care to be extra kind to pets and feed the strays too (although this should be done on a daily basis and not just once a year!). Dogs are considered auspicious beings who bring good fortune, and some believe that if a stray dog comes into your home, giving it a home will bring u good luck and fortune. So, don’t turn away a stray who comes to your doorstep or you will be turning away good fortune! Now give your lucky dog a big kiss for being such a blessing!

Unfortunately for humans especially those like mine, CNY can be quite an unpleasant time especially when facing nosy relatives. How I wish I could be there to protect them from all the nosy people! I would nip off their nosy toes in a flash! But since I cannot be there, here’s a good survival guide to all you humans who could be in the same soup! How to defend yourself and Why so kaypoh. Just for laughs 😀

I miss my human heaps even though I’m having loads of fun here. There will be heaps of fireworks playing tonight as tonight is the eve and peak of the celebrations. I hate fireworks and firecrackers, they give me quite a fright! Cross my paws and hope my lucky stars will make the sky rain tonight! I’d pee on the fireworks if I had the chance but unfortunately I can’t 😦


Happy Wood Horse Year!
