Painting Kuching in Watercolour

Blast from the Past No.3

Posted on: 12/05/2011

This was my dog Bartoo wearing his brand new red collar I got for him from Petsworld in KL. We rescued him as a month old puppy from a deep monsoon drain near our house. He had been coshed on the head and thrown into the drain to die. He grew up to be the smartest dog we ever owned! He knew how to unlatch the garden gate, slide open the door grille and many times he tried to twist open the door knob like he had seen us do. He had many toys and he even devised a game for himself by picking up pottery shards piece by piece from the corner of the garden and stacking them up in the middle of the yard. Using his nose, he would try to pile them up together as high as possible. Then he would push the whole stack over and do a victory lap round the garden, barking.

He died aged 8 when canine distemper roiled through the neighbourhood. RIP Bartoo, we miss your funny antics.

Dog owners, never forget the distemper vaccine booster shots for your dog!
