DWB certainly is a very busy world, and all my pals are surely very busy too. Don't forget the hoomans. Hammies are busy hide and seeking, some doggies playing with clicker boxes, happily reunting with their families, having fun in bathrooms!, having vaccinations, visiting pet stores, painting for charity, having no internet connection!, making new friends, enjoying spa treatments!, performing easy to tough tricks, colourfying their blogs with True Colours! and Wordless Wednesday pics!
Us? We're keeping our paws crossed for Bogart's daddy, and wishing hard our hooman wasn't so busy all the time. But she obviously wasn't busy enough to NOT sneak in some tablets in my kibbles, I saw!
Today also happens to be Whiskey's birthday, but we don't really celebrate. She just got an extra yummy dinner and a promise of some sausages tomorrow! I can't wait for my turn!
And! We officiated a new ball today. I kinda ripped up our brown football ball.
Recently, a local TV channel aired this. It is on the cruelty towards stray cats and dogs at a pound in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur. Please, take a moment to go through the video.
And here is the article,
By WANI MUTHIAH
THEY had gone to the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) animal pound in Setapak to protest against the alleged brutal killing of dogs and cats there but animal activists were not prepared for what they stumbled upon in the vicinity of the premises.
Thrown into uncovered pits, about six feet in both width and depth, were the rotting carcasses of dogs that had been killed at the pound.
“We cannot tolerate such cruelty and are totally against it,’’ said Rosnah Hassan, who burst into tears after seeing the graves.
Elaine Kong added that a better method should be used to terminate the lives of strays as well as dispose of their remains.
The crowd had gathered at the pound in reaction to the visuals shown over the TV3 programme 360° last Wednesday night.
The visuals, which were captured by a hidden camera, showed a pound worker dragging a dying dog with a loop around its neck whilst another terrified dog watched the ‘execution’ as it waited for its turn.
DBKL health department director Dr Zainol Ariffin Pawanchee who was at the pound to meet the protesters was bombarded with questions by the angry crowd.
The 360° programme anchor Mazidul Akmal Sidek, who was also there, told Dr Zainol Ariffin that the visuals showed the dog still breathing when being yanked around by the neck.
Dr Zainol Ariffin, who neither denied nor admitted to the mishap, apologised to the crowd for the trauma they had undergone after watching the visuals.
He said the dogs were caught and brought to the pound by two private companies which were paid RM30 per dog captured.
He added euthanising the dogs and disposing of the carcasses were carried out by DBKL employees. Meanwhile, Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Ahmad Fuad Ismail said he had asked Dr Zainol Ariffin to explain the matter to him.
“Apparently, the landfills have refused to take the carcasses and we don’t have an incinerator as it is very expensive,’’ Ahmad Fuad said.
He added that he would look into the matter as he wanted dogs to be caught, euthanised and buried according to the guidelines provided.
Besides holding placards which condemned the alleged brutal killings, the 50-odd activists also lit candles outside the pound in remembrance of all the animals killed there.
They also adopted four dogs and seven puppies from the pound after paying a nominal compound.
The gathering was initiated by non-profit organisation Community Development and Integration Initiative’s (CDII) canine welfare project Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better.

We really don't know what to say anymore. The said TV channel had another show about the same matter today, and really, sometimes you just wonder, how is it possible to be that cruel?
Please tell your friends about this, we want to increase awareness on cruelty towards animals.
I have thought it over and after being stuck in the kennel for a long time on my own, (well, fine, with Whiskey, but still..)
I have decided to spill the kibbles and announce my victory.
Oops, I mean, my wrongdoing.
The picture above is a traditional sticky cake for prayers during Chinese New Year. It is made up of sticky glutinous flour and sugar. This cake is an offering for the gods, because it will sweeten the tongue of the god, who goes back to heaven to report on the family. Heheh. But it sure is yummy too!
Why do I say so? Because...
I ate it.
I A T E I T.
It was put for prayers outdoors, although on a raised altar. But who could resist right? And tonight I'm stuck in the kennel again. Sigh.
Yes, we have been on a long long hiatus, but you can blame it on the hooman's lack of help in blogging. We've been not-very-occupied, but if you could call napping an activity, then yeah, we're pretty busy dawgs.
We tried out this new treat called P'nutz, and they're pretty yummy!
AS usual, I have to do the routine before I get it...urghh. PeeEss/ Sorry for the wrongsided pictures! Blogger is kicking up a fuss!
Actually, it looks like a piece of poop, check this out..
But it tastes pretty good! It's shaped exactly like a peanut, and the one we got is the Petite size, perfect for Whiskey.. Or maybe not?!?!
Anyways, it is the Chinese New Year once more! This calls for some yummy cookies. We're praying hard our hooman will give us some! Happy Chinese New Year everyone!
Hello doggies, my life is sort of boring nowadays, that is why I didn't update. Anyway, we have only been chewing and chewing and chewing. Ohh and with the rare Kongs in between! We would like to know, what do you like best in your KONGS?? Do tell us! In the meantime, just so you won't forget how I look, here!
Hey everyone! I'm Brandy and I am 6 years old this year. I LOVE LOVE LOVE food, and bullying my sisters, Whiskey, Chivas, Rum, JD, and Chard'ny! I also enjoy walks and outings, especially to parks. The ONE trick I enjoy doing is shaking paws. It is seriously fun, I tell you. All you have to do is give a pawshake and you get a YUMMY treat! Other than that, I think that the grass is really good to scratch your back, I do it whenever I have the itch! My humans call me FAT, but personally, I DO NOT THINK SO! Quote Garfield,"I'm not overweight, I'm just undertall. " So, you can't blame me, its genetics!
