Happy 4th Gotcha/Adoption Day

The end of another year. To the start of a greater year.

This 28th Dec marks the 4th one we’ve had Mango with us. As per usual, we’re doing a 12 months in review!

Thing is, I haven’t been blogging much (or at all) this year. I’ve been using Instagram mostly because that’s the easiest and fastest way to do it on the go.

Past years’ entries:
3rd Year – 2015
2nd Year – 2014
1st Year – 2013

As per usual, picture heavy post! You’ve been warned. Continue reading

Green Corridor Walk with Shelties!

L-R: Summer, Zappy, Kooky, Waffles, Spirit, Lulu, Mango

Being no stranger to walks along The Green Corridor, this time (last month 🙄) we brought new friends there! One way to keep fit with your dog, is to walk regularly! Walking the same route everyday gets boring. Why not spice it up with a once awhile long walk with some friends in a new environment? Yes, please!

Past entries here and here, with some not blogged about.

So we gathered some Sheltie owners + friends for a little get-together!

Total distance: Approx 4km

*Warning: Picture heavy post. But Shelties ahead! 😉 Continue reading

Happy 2nd Gotcha/Adoption Day!

Another year has gone by in the blink of an eye. As of today, I’ve had Mango for 2 years!! Wow.

Okay, the year in pictures. Also, this serves as a summary for Mango’s entire year! #justnice

January

24/01/14

Mango started getting fluffier this year. Like “POOF”! Last year, he was just growing out that short coat from when I got him. This year, I think his fur has pretty much reached it’s peak. So…. 2 years to get back a Sheltie’s fur if you shave it down? I didn’t shave him, his previous family did. Technically it wasn’t a shave…? It was just really really short.

Fur progress

Last year, we started with the above photo. This year, the bottom photo. Quite an improvement when you compare them side by side, yes?

There’s a ton of photos for the whole year, so click on and load them all! You’ve been warned!

The Green Corridor

Ohai!

*Original post on 16/2/14, ported over from mama’s blog for convenience.
Been seeing so many pictures of people bring their dogs to this place called The Green Corridor and I’ve been very curious about it. Upon further research, it’s the old KTM railway track! Looked at the map and… mind blown! It’s sooooo long!!!! *faint* So after asking around, people recommended that I take this route from Holland Road to Bukit Timah Railway Station. Actually the map says from Bukit Timah Railway Station to Holland Road, but we did it in the opposite direction based on recommendations. Also, we needed a place to park so we had to start near a residential area.
According to the comments in the map link, there’s actually a pretty good map here: Google Maps. It shows you which area has good/okay access points, mud zone and all that. But if you’re looking for a photo spot, I’d suggest the one we took because it’s the one with the conserved train station and also there’s a bridge with tracks over Dunearn Road.

Actually wanted to go even earlier, but we overslept =( Next time! Next time we will go have breakfast, ok?

We reached the start point at about 840am, from the bottommost photo point around Holland Road. We walked up north and stopped at the bridge over Dunearn Road (topmost photo point). After which, we walked back to Holland Road. All in all, we took about 2hours? Only stopped  to take photos of Mango at the 2 conserved tracks at the station and the bridge.

For the most part from Holland Road to the station, it was a dirt track and lucky for us, was relatively dry. If it rains, it’s going to get extremely muddy. Mango came home with slightly muddy paws but it was his bath day today anyway, so no problems!

Have we walked enough??

I had him off-leash the whole time and he was really good and followed us throughout the whole journey with no problems! Met a few dogs who were also off leash! Safe because there are no roads on either side of the trail. But please make sure your dogs are friendly, obviously.

I would love to come back again. It was fun! Maybe we should have a picnic there!! Or have a photoshoot for the doggies!!
