Hi guys! It’s me the smelly beagle again after another long break from my blogging career. Boy, it sure is difficult to type on human keyboards with my big fat paws!
There’s a new dog park in town and we were there a couple of weeks back for the soft opening! Entrance is free for now, but heard that they’re charging an entrance fee soon.

The dog park is part of the pet hotel and dog training facility by G-Pet.com. My humans brought me and my sister Spring there for a short run.
Help, mommy……there’s a pervert poodle sniffing my backside
You see my friend, Hiro in the corner….. he didn’t help me out when the pervert poodle was harassing me!
Help, mommy! Stop taking pictures, I think he likes me….
Finally some peace to sniff around after being constantly molested by 4 male poodles….
It sure looks big! But not as big as the Pets Pavillion dog park we used to go to….
Let me leave some pee-mail here!
Yea, keep up, sister!
Hey, newcomer alert! Let’s go say hello! And do a bit of sniffing…..
Can you spot me?
Oh yeah, I got someone to give me a back massage 🙂
Hurray to a new dog park in town! I hope my humans continue to bring me there to meet new friends. Although I didn’t quite like the bunch of boy poodles who shamelessly ganged up to kiss me!! Ugh, boys!!
The facility also houses cageless pet boarding rooms and a dog training ground. Didn’t manage to get a tour around the place though. Maybe next time!

Tonight i would like to share a true story that happened in Malaysia that broke the hearts of all dogs and dog lovers in this country. This story is about 8 sniffer and detection dogs from the Fire and Rescue Department in Malaysia who were euthanized because they were retired and could no longer be of service. It was a sad day for all dogs as these healthy retired K9 unit dogs were put down simply because the government did not want to incur any cost of maintaining these poor old fellas. The saddest thing was that the chairman of the Canine Advisory Team who is also a disabled person using therapy dogs actually advocates euthanasia on these dogs who had risked their lives and suffered injury from serving the country. Their service had simply gone unappreciated and once they can no longer be of service, they are put down.
In Malaysia, dogs are usually discriminated against and many local councils implement laws and regulations to discourage people from owning dogs (e.g. Licensing requirements, neighbor consent, etc). It is a whole bigger story on why this is happening so i will tell it another day. Dog abuse and inhumane methods employed by dog catching companies are also rampant in most states. Sometimes, even licensed dogs are dognapped from their homes and killed by dog catchers in order to claim the bounty offered by local councils. Local councils do not believe in TNRM methods, instead they pay private dog catchers to eradicate stray dogs. It is a sad state.
Please take some time to read this newspaper article about the K9 unit dogs that were euthanized.
This is how canine heroes are treated
“What happened reflects on how dogs are viewed here.”
Many people and even a local Dr. Dog organization would be more than happy to adopt these retired dogs, however government agencies just can’t wait to put them down once they are no longer able to serve.

What do you think? Is euthanasia the right solution for these retired service dogs?
