Our Pets, Jingle Bell And Labby

In these 7 months, I have two dogs... but one, as I mentioned in my posts earlier this year, he has gone missing in early February. His name is Jingle Bell, cute name for a cute daschund ... till today I still think of him because he is a very smart dog eventhough he is only a year old when I took him home.

Then in April, I took Labby home. She was four months old then and now, she is 7-8 months old. But her size? I can say she looks very matured for a 8 month old puppy, as you can see from the picture here and in my earlier post.

Labby is a friendly doggie... she does not bark at people.... in fact she wags her tail vigorously when she sees people visiting us. How to "jaga" house like that? How to teach her to be more fierce? Other than scratching me, she loves to eat anything.... hahaha... she eats like she hasn't eaten for months! The way she gulps down the food without tasting reminds me of Scamper in Enid Blyton.

So.... anyone here can tell me how to teach Labby to bark at strangers?

Thanks Gab for taking these wonderful pics of Labby....


  1. she doesn't bark at strangers?
    taht's weird.

    she's lady.

  2. yeah..only barks when hungry..cos she is always hungering for food no matter how much she eats...

  3. alamak, dunno how :) ya that's weird .. how come she didnt bark at strangers??

  4. she is just too friendly..welcoming anyone who comes by to play with her.. labradors are friendly dogs, i heard..

  5. she still young la.. another alternative is you lock her up for a while at the back where she don't see human.. come out she will start to bark at "EVERYBODY"!

  6. hmm... not barking at strangers? that's strange... :-) hhehehe... but I guess it's too early, since your dog is less than a year old.

    but that's once cute dog!!!

    My Tech Blog...O_o
    Things I got from the Net!!!

  7. Your Labby reminds me of my dog named PB Girl. She went missing one day and nowhere to be found. PB barked to stranger but yet she been 'kidnapped'.

    This may be a silly idea...teach Labby to understand Hokkien language and those who don't speak Hokkien..hahahaha! will sure get a bite from Labby...hahahhahah! Just joking. My Hokkien also tunggang bite from Labby????...ekekekke (waittt...u speaks Hokkien alright, Claire?)

  8. hey I can't differentiate which one is Jingle Bell and Labby wo, both are look the same to me! hehehe

  9. Labs are the friendliest dogs on earth I think! Their eyes are sooo warm! I want a dog too!!!!

    (so envious) :)

  10. Some dogs bark at everyone including their owner.. some dogs don't bark at anyone at all. some dogs bark and strangers that seems dagnerous to them. It is mind of their own I guess haha :P. Unless we have trained them since young to bark at unknown people.

  11. not sure why she doesnt bark..maybe still young? 8months? but heard some puppies very clever to bark at strangers even at young age. Labby is indeed friendly... must take in another dog to teach her, i guess..haha..

    Amy, jingle bell is the small doggie.... labby is the bigger dog.. so much difference la.

    mauve ocean, i dont speak hokkien so but labby can understand a few dialects, english, malay and hakka.. hahhaaa... believe it or not.. but she doesnt understand the word "Bark"

  12. she's beautiful :D Labs are very friendly by nature so they seldom bark at strangers I think. Plus she's in a good home with lots of tender loving care so she must be thinking that everyone is just like her owners ;)

  13. what a nice thing to say , Barbara.. thank you. i think she lack tender loving care so much that she wants to make frens with anybody..anyone.. everyone... hahaa.. but L is really a friendly dog..

  14. Aww...Labby has such nice round warm eyes!

  15. haih.. bark for wat? I love mute dogs... like a soft toy but with a heart :)

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m
