Identity Crisis~ Who am i?!

18 Jul 2010

Liam and Wanzi noticed that i am pretty moody these days. I think it's because i am suffering from identity crisis. Maybe i should try to figure it out myself than to rely on my pawrents.

Fact check
My name is Mino. I'm a miniature beagle adopted by my current pawrents Liam & Wanzi.

Possibility A
I am related to the famous beagle called Snoopy?!

(Credits: Snoopy picture from Google.com.sg)

Possibility B
I am originated from Japan?! (See post)

Since day 1, they have speculated that i am originated from Japan due to my name (given by my previous pawrents) and miniature size.

Possibility C
I am originated from Egypt?!

Today, Wanzi commented that i may have actually originated from Egypt. Here's why...
My beagle-tiful picture of me resting on the top of the sofa.

Here's the picture of my "ancestor" from Egypt.

My verdict
With all my doggy might & sense, i conclude that my pawrents are WRONG! All the above are not possible!!!

Both my pawrents are Singaporeans citizens and since i'm born here... it is clear that i am, without any doubt, a Singaporean dog. Also not forgetting that my birthday is on 15 Aug, just days after our National Day.

And of course as a Singaporean dog, like most Singaporeans, i support PAP*!
*To Mino, it means Play And Play (See post & post)

*woof* Any treats for being so smart?!

I love LONG walks

27 Jun 2010

Liam & Wanzi brought me out for an hour long walk today! They secretly took a video of me during the walk... saying that i look funny walking when the leash is by my side.
Wanzi: She avoid drains by walking around them. When the leash is on her side, she will walk "sideways". Ain't she adorable?! =)

The culprit~

17 Dec 2009

Liam was sending Wanzi home when my nose brought me to the table and i could smell "FOOD"! Since i know he won't be back so soon, i will take my chances... need a plan! A good plan...

I jumped up onto Liam's bed, went over to the study table... stretched out my paw (or maybe hopped onto the table) and here's my prize! A white & red box... with two buns, lettuce & beef patties.. YUM YUM!

Shoot! He's back! But how did he know i ate it?!

Here's the culprit who ate the whole BIG MAC! Hiding in the corner while Liam is scolding her~ with that pitiful & sorry look

Look at the box, it's absolutely CLEAN! Greedy MINO!

Birthday Surprise for Obi

On 18 Jan 2009, we brought a birthday surprise gift for Obi whose birthday falls just a few days earlier.

All 3 of us went over before going for my walk. And Obi's sense of smell is so strong, he couldn't stop trying to grab the present from Wanzi & his owner's hands... Here's the goodies:


PS: Wanzi & Liam bought an exact same one for me recently on 05 Jun 09.

My walk to East Coast Park

As usual, Liam & Wanzi brought me out this weekend to East Coast Park. It's the first weekend of 2009, first trip to East Coast Park of the year! Same place yet again, but no complains from me! (^_^)v

Now that Liam has started working in Dec last year, i've been getting lesser walks. In the past, i get to walk almost daily except during raining days. Now, i get to be walked at least once a week. Only *period*. So i must treasure my walks and sniff as much as possible! <--- One of my new year resolutions! Hah! On our way to the park, a sign that was supposed to show "No Riding. Fine: $1000" for offenders who rode on the overhead bridge.
Here's a picture of me crossing the overhead bridge. Those cars zooming on the highway below looked like toy cars~

Tugging Liam to be faster as i picked up a scent right in front, to the left!

Taking a break at the fountain area. Couldn't take my eyes off that ice-cream that Wanzi is enjoying!
On our way home, but but but, i AM still very energetic!

Liam: 3 furry cats looked at Mino, from the moment we were in sight. Their eyes following us around, so cute!

Wanzi: 3 cute cats were looking @ Mino. So we decided to take a picture of Mino and the cats, but they have decided to ignore us. All looked away~ (T_T)

New Year's Eve & Happy New Year's Day~!

Hi furry pals~

Happy New Year to you!
How did you spent your NYE? Liam's friends came over to our place and... ...

Wanzi brought me out for an hour's walk whilst Liam had to be at home as his friends were coming over!
So many guests came and I AM the star of attention... Plus, endless playing and "FOOD IS EVERYWHERE". The only obstacle is getting it from them~ *heehee*

Wanzi: Little Mino got soooooo excited as she was getting attention from everyone~ kept barking and barking... ran around the house, jumping sofa to sofa, bit us when she played a little too rough. And even got herself punished by Liam for being so disobedient. Poor Mino... I'm sure the 5 mins punishment felt sooooo long. She just showed everyone her pity look... Awwwww


Mino: After counting down to New Year's Day, Liam opened up a NEW TOY for me! YEAH!!!!!
Here's my cute picture while waiting for Liam to open the toy~


At that very moment when Liam got the toy opened, my attention was on his friends who were eating~ he called for me and with no reaction after several calls, he placed it on the floor... FINALLY after a few secs later, i grabbed the toy and turned on the "Do not disturb" mode~

Liam: She was really distracted that day, usually she would try to snatch the toy from me while i was getting it out and the moment i got it opened. This time round, i HAD to get her attention~ *LoL*

Mino: Here's a snapshot of me chewing the toy~

Wanzi: As usual, Mino's routine is to grab the toy, go to a corner or a spot and start playing the toy by herself. "Do not disturb" mode turned on as no matter how we try to get her attention, she would ignore us... ... unless there's FOOD! After she played enough, she will bring her new toy to you.... asking us to play with her! *CUTE*

Here's a blur picture of Liam and Mino playing tug with the new toy. Try spotting them and the toy! (^_^)v

It's a BEAGLE day~

Hi everybody~
It's Mino posting today. Liam and Wanzi brought me out as usual, long walks on the weekends.



First stop was at my fellow beagle friend (whom they called him my boyfriend) Obi's place for a gathering~
Mino calling Obi out to play~


Greetings and sniffing each other out! Obi smells so nice as he had cologne on



Liam with Obi striking a handsome post for Wanzi to snap good pictures...





Obi checking out his neighbour's dogs. Look at his high jump~!





After bidding goodbye to Obi, we headed out for our walk! Mino "on her hunting mode"




After Obi posted a handsome post for Wanzi, here comes Mino with the cute post! (^_^)b


Met a 4 year old female beagle during the walk. Very well-behave~


Taking a snapshot of the two beagles~


A satisfying hour long walk for me~! Usually, i won't let them go home until i have walked and sniffed enough...

Wanzi: Just when you thought she may be tired~ WRONG! She got excited and soooo happy and she jumped from sofa to sofa~ ran around the coffee table~ (*Sorry no pics cos it's all blurred ones*) Heehee... I'm too fast for my humans! Woohoo!

Annual Vaccination

fell asleep waiting for her turn...surprised the injection was like less than 1 sec..anyway was told by the doc she may get feverish and lethargic after the vaccination...and after a few hours, i think the jab caused her hind leg to be sore or sth as she became "moodified" and cranky the whole afternoon....

Mino's PAP (play and play)

(woo i m a dancer.....)

(tracking time!)

(my fav colour)

(this is game is called 'dong dong cheng' or chinese lion dance....i try not to play this with her cos the blanket is for her to sleep on and she gets a bit uncontrollable after this game...)


(Liam: the answer to combat hardcore chewers!!!deflatable balls....so far so good just that squeaking sound sometimes dampens because of dog drool....)

Still energetic after an hour's long walk

Mino: Today, i had an hour plus long walk. Liam & Wanzi brought me to a pet store, bought me treats + new toy + jeans jumper!!

But the naughty & excited me couldn't wait to get home and eat my new treats!!! I just tugged my way home! Woof woof!


Wanzi: Little Mino was still super energetic after the walk... she went into one of the rooms and started on her "hunting & sniffing" mode. Busy going through each and every corner of the room, even the bag of rubbish was also not spared...


Wanzi: Liam was working on to frame his precious Manchester United picture of many many many years ago. While he turned to get something, Mino who was sniffing around nearby, (most probably waiting patiently for the chance)... turned around and reached out for it!
Liam: NOooOooOO! CannoOooOooT!!!!
p.s.: We try not to tell her "No!", rather we try to use the word "Cannot". In case she thinks we are calling her when we say "No!"


Liam: After the failed attempt, she continued her sniffing adventure... attempting to appreciate the wines~
Mino: So boring! Nothing to bite~! Nothing to chew~! Nothing to eat~!
Liam & Wanzi: The truth is... she got tired from all the hunting and sniffing, she took a quick rest... before continuing round 2.
