She is Pecan Woods...


So, life was pretty good for me.
After all, I was the precious only child (and grandchild).

Then, on one stormy night (okay, I exaggerate. It was a bright afternoon la), she came along.
#thenemesisofmylife
Yap, she is Pecan Woods Loo Lim.
In her heart, Mummy had always wanted a second dog. However, she didn't think that the time was right and hence, was never actively looking.
Until she saw this pic of a senior dog up for adoption....
The owner had to relocate to overseas and was unable to bring her along.

Mummy's heart melted instantly as there was a striking resemblance.

And when she saw a second pic, she knew she wanted to adopt this dog instantly.
     
However, she had one huge obstacle to cross - Daddy.
She didn't think that there was any chance that Daddy would say yes. 
To her absolute surprise, Daddy actually okay-ed it. 
OMG~

The very first time we met, this old grumpy smelly stinky mean woman attacked me.
So I did what Sammy Loo does best - I rolled over and surrendered.

Well, guess that pretty much decided the dynamics between the two of us.

Our first car ride home!
#IwasstillhappycosIdidnotknowwhatwascoming
Pecan took to our household immediately. 
I mean, she was taking all my toys and laying on all my beds.

For the first couple of months, we were fighting, a lot. 
But overtime, the fights died off and we even started playing.

Apart from her crankiness with other dogs, Pecan was an awesome dog.
She was house-trained, great home along, loves people (and tolerate kids) and not a fussy eater at all.
Almost everything that I am not.

While she is considered rather genki for a senior dog, ah ma did have her fair share of medical issues.
Firstly, her breath was so bad that she had to undergo scaling (she lost four teeth!).
#ahmaisbogay 
Secondly, she had pyometra (uterine infection) and required to undergo sterlisation. (That came with a cancer scare!)
Thankfully, she made a quick recovery and was back to her cranky ways really soon.
Now, she has a clean bill of health and we even celebrated her 11th birthday in 2014.

Ah ma is still a work-in-progress and can be slightly reactive when leashed.
Thankfully, our parents worked with a trainer to address her issues and we're proud to say that Pecan ah ma is pretty good with other dogs now!
Even better than me lor.

K la K la, as much as I'm not too pleased to have to share my parent's attention with a smelly granny, I do enjoy her company. SOMEWHAT.
Well, at least there's someone to bother when mummy is ignoring me. 
Plus, she's quite comfy to cuddle with. 
So, yap, she is my sister and I am stuck with her.
But you know what, despite my endless ramblings, I can't quite imagine life without her.
So, I guess she is here to stay, and I ain't complaining no more.
