Now & Then



This photo was taken when Tiger was 3 months old. He looked plump & short. Also not to forget his innocent expression. :) I just like his puppy look. Very adorable indeed.


Now moving into 5 months old, I observed some changes in him. He grows taller and slightly bigger now. According to the study, Chihuahua's height will stop growing when it reaches 8 months. I wish he'll stop growing big too, so that he'll remain his current look.

After the previous allergy incident that caused Tiger abnormal shedding, now his hair grows healthily. You can see his hair grow denser and also as smooth as cotton. We just bought him daily supplement that contains B-complex vitamins. It promotes healthy skin and coat.

His coat now changed into more golden tone. His "Geisha eyebrows" no longer appear on his face. :( He looks more mature, and he is definitely more active. The only thing is that he still very timid. The other day when I carried him for a walk, his whole body shaking all along the way until I brought him home. The girls from the mini market laughed at him when they saw his legs shaking in fear. Hai...Why ler? Chihuahua is supposed to be courageous and fiery. Why Tiger is so "kia si"?

A good practice that Tiger pick up recently is he barks at stranger (to him) who enters our house. Clever pup! Now he assists to look after our house. He acts an alarm, hahaha...


This is another photo that I want to share. See his hair on both ears? It grows longer now. Really looks like the chicken feather that my mom used to tied my ponny tail when I was a little kid.

Well, there are always pros & cons. Keeping a pet will cheer you up, accompany you so that you are not alone. But it needs your attention, love and time too. So, for me keeping a pet is like take care of a child. Furhtermore, need to spend some money each month to buy him food, snacks, shampoo, supplements and wee wee pet (for small breed dog).
It worth it, at least I'm more happy now. Everyday can't wait to go home to hug him. :)

Kristie, my Tiger seldom bark. He is quiet and timid. It is totally different from what I've seen and what I saw from the net. Haha...may be it is still small?
