OS: you can really see the meat and it smells really tasty!

Into our bowl..(Left: Amber's, Right: Snowy's, Bottom: Dawn's)

Btw, our gor gor and jie jies changed our bowl for the following reason too..

For Amber, into the DogIt Eat better bowl to slower down her eating speed, to reduce the gas she take in as she "gobbles" her food (from the past till now, Amber is used to "gobbles" her food instead if chewing the food properly before swallowing) which can prevent gas or bloated tummy..

For dawn and Snowy, into the non-slippery bowl... but considering to change both their bowl to DogIt Eat Better bowl too...

OS from Amber, Dawn, Snowy: Ok, now.. gotta pen off here.. off to enjoy our food..

Dogs survivie Japan Quake-Hit

Even animals in Japan have touching stories to share. Watch this inspiring tale of two dogs in quake-hit Japan.

In the video, a dog refuses to leave the area, keeping vigil at a friend's side. The other dog is injured, but still alive, much to the relief of STOMPer InuPower.

According to CNN and the UK Telegraph, both dogs have been rescued, and are receiving veterinary care in the same town of Mito, Japan.

Said the STOMPer:

"This is yet another display of animal loyalty that is so touching -- and especially during this difficult time.

"Similar to these dogs, I'm sure the people are also trying their best to cope and to keep vigil at their friends' sides.

"This is a story that would not have been told, if the reporter did not notice it.

"Like the many stories of people helping others in Japan, here's one that comes from an animal friend.

"Stay strong, Japan!"

All updates on Animals relating to March 2011 Japan Disaster

Earthquake and tsunami relief for Japan's people and pets
Many people and animals are in need in the wake of Japan's tsunami

The 8.9 magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami that struck Japan today caused widespread death, injury and destruction. Relief organizations and governments around the world are responding to help people, and now several groups are stepping in to assist the animals impacted by the disaster as well.

There are a number of ways for people here and abroad to help the people and pets that were hurt or displaced. Sacramento pet expert and author Gina Spadafori reported today on recommendations made by her colleague, veterinarian Dr. Marty Becker.

For those interested in doing so, Becker suggests contacting the following organizations:

World Vets is an international veterinary aid organization that provides “free veterinary aid, resources and support during times of disaster all over the world”. Their non-profit efforts spans 25 countries and 6 continents, and handles both veterinary issues and human health issues caused by animal-related infectious diseases.

World Vets is already working to help victims of the earthquake and tsunami, and desperately needs donations. To learn more, click here for their website.

The National Disaster Search Dog Foundation is a non-profit, FEMA-certified agency that searches for survivors in the wreckage of catastrophic events such as the one is Japan.

NDSDF has already deployed six Canine Disaster Search Teams to respond to the current crisis; each task force is made up of approximately 72 members (including both humans and Urban Search and Rescue dogs) and some 75 tons of rescue equipment.



Here’s another article with a more complete list of animal rescue groups that will be doing work in Japan. Please help them out if you can.

Help animals in Japan tsunami disaster

March 11 was a tragic day for Japan after a disastrous 8.9-magnitute earthquake shattered the eastern coast and resulted in a series of tsunamis that washed away homes, cars, and caused damage of catastrophic proportions. Relief organizations all over the world are responding to help the people and the animals of Japan.

The Search Dog Foundation is deploying six canine disaster search teams to assist with the rescues. The task force will be composed of approximately 72 personnel, including urban search and rescue dogs, and some 75 tons of rescue equipment.

Sadly, many animals have been injured in the earthquake and countless were left homeless. Here is some information about the rescue efforts by the local animal shelters. Below is a message from Elizabeth Oliver of Animal Refuge Kansai:

From our experience of the Great Hanshin earthquake on January 17th 1995, we know that the number of homeless pets may be immense. Here at ARK, we are preparing for what might be a huge influx of animals. We already have some facilities in place and a team of experienced staff able to deal with traumatized animals. We may have to build emergency shelters as well. The logistics of getting animal from the Tohoku/Sendai area is immense, since roads and other transport links have been cut and may take time to restore. Our only means to get animals down to Osaka may be by helicopter, which was one method we used after the Kobe earthquake. We will use our resources and know-how to help as many animals as we can, following this terrible disaster.

Japan Cat Network has also posted an update on its web site:

We are all greatly saddened and have been continually horrified by news of the devastation, following the recent earthquake here in Japan. We, the kitties at the JCN Kansai shelter, and the shelter itself, are all fine. However, we remain very concerned about the animals in the severely affected areas who may be overlooked in the midst of so much immediate need to address human concerns. We are working with two other no-kill organizations to coordinate plans for getting animals from these areas out to safety, and have already begun helping people with pets in crisis.

Please donate any amount you can to help the shelters with the rescue efforts. No amount is small and any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated!

WANDER the dog which was abused with a metal chain leaving its face disfigured, has been put down on Saturday.

The female mongrel's condition had deteriorated drastically due to a 'cancer growth which is derived from the inflammation of her injuries' according to Lyn Loh, a volunteer at Mdm Wong's Shelter.

'Wander hasn't been eating and was down to her skin and bones. The growth on her face was so aggressive that her both eyes had been swollen shut.

'There is no quality of life left for her and we've had to make the painful decision to end her suffering,' she added on Mdm Wong's Shelter's Facebook page (

Wander had been housed at the shelter since early January after being brought there.

The dog was allegedly abused by a China foreign worker according to a report on citizen journalism portal Stomp.

SG SPCA Founder died at 89

Marjorie Doggett, RIP

After arriving from England in 1947 with her husband, Victor, Mrs Doggett co-founded a voluntary service which rescued stray cats from Singapore's streets. That initiative later morphed into the SPCA. — ST FILE PHOTO

SHE was born thousands of kilometres away, in Britain.

But once she arrived here, Mrs Marjorie Doggett took up a cause that was closest to her heart – preventing human acts of cruelty against animals – and left a legacy for Singaporeans in the form of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).

On Sunday night, Mrs Doggett died at her Toh Heights home of 33 years, after years of ill health.

She was 89.

Her key achievements after arriving here from England in 1947 include co-founding a voluntary service which rescued stray cats from Singapore's streets, which later morphed into the SPCA.

Thanks in large part to her efforts, the organisation has grown significantly, a far cry from its early days, when funding was scarce and supporters fluctuated due to a predominantly expatriate membership.

Mrs Doggett was so keen on protecting animals that in those days, she did much of the work herself. For example, qualified veterinarians were a rarity here, so she often resorted to rescuing cats from the streets and whisking them by car to the government's sole Animal Infirmary in Kampong Java.

'She started the ball rolling – and was still at it 60 years later,' said Ms Deidre Moss, SPCA's current executive officer, paying tribute to Mrs Doggett's passion, knowledge on animal issues and willingness to mentor younger volunteers.

'She was a walking encyclopedia, keeping so much literature on animal welfare,' added Ms Moss.

Policymakers also had the benefit of tapping into her knowledge on issues ranging from the wildlife trade to the use of animals in science laboratories, noted Mr Madhavan Kannan, former head of the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority's Centre for Animal Welfare and Control, who first worked with Mrs Doggett in the 1970s.

'She was one of the early pioneers among people who championed the cause of animals,' he said.

She also raised awareness of the issue by writing frequently to The Straits Times' Forum pages about the cruelty dealt to some animals here.

Mrs Doggett's relationship with animals started early. She grew up surrounded by them at her home in Sussex, England. By the time she was in secondary school, she was taking up the cause that would define her life, fighting for the rights of animals.

Mrs Doggett moved to Singapore with her husband, Victor, who was posted here by the Royal Air Force. They subsequently decided to settle here permanently, becoming Singapore citizens in 1960.

Mr Doggett died five years ago after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease.

Besides animals, Mrs Doggett also had a passion for photography, and particularly liked capturing historical buildings, many of which have since been demolished. In 1957, a book entitled Characters Of Light was published, showing some of her collection.

But animals were far and away her first love. The couple's only son, Nicholas, 52, told The Straits Times that even as the end drew near, his mother maintained her fondness for critters, often surrounding herself with the family's seven pet cats.

He said that she had remained fiercely protective of them, even when her capacity to walk was hampered.

'We had a cat who would bully the other cats. She took me aside one night and said, 'you'd better stop that cat from terrorising the others. Otherwise, I will do it, even if I have to crawl out of my bed on all fours'.'

He added: 'She was strong willed in the things she believed in.
