Dog day out
I stopped by at Amazing Pets at Fortune Land yesterday after work to scout for hamster treats (dried anchovies) for the boy. Contrary to the pictures, I don't like to shop at Amazing Pets because their prices tend to be on the high side, but they have a nice selection of pet stuff that's worth browsing through.
I would advise Kuching pet owners to shop at Pet Zone (behind the Celcom building at Jalan Satok) or for specific hamster supplies - Pet Care World (on top of Park Lane) because the owner supplies hamster stuff to other pet shops in Kuching. Unfortunately, their odd operating hours (9am to 4pm) makes it impossible for me to drop by after work.
Anyway, I saw the cutest Shih Tzu pup at Amazing Pets. Very photogenic too. Despite their cute outward appearance, Shih Tzus are generally not photogenic. Their flat faces become even flatter in pictures. Some of them have an overshot underbite, making them look rather bulldoggish. But this Shih Tzu was very cute. Maybe because it responded to my tapping on the glass and obligingly posed nicely for a few shots. Heh.
I took this picture of a pug for MK, my office's resident pugaholic. It looked very depressed. According to Miss Pugaholic, affection-starved pugs can lapse into serious depression. I think it's true. You can't tell from the pictures, but the poor pug had red, rheumy eyes with a borderline schizophrenic look in them.

And no, the stoned mutt did not respond one bit to my glass-tapping.
