This stray dog and her puppy roamed around my neighbourhood.
For 2 years, i was not a fan of this dog, because she simply growl at people. I think at the time she just gave birth and might be protective of her pups. Have to admit though, some of her puppies are quite cute. They were taken away from her because she gave birth at one of my neighbours house. Do not know how they manage to take the pups cause she very aggressive type. The puppy in this picture is from 'recent' batch.
Only for the past few months, she seem to be ok with me and we (me and my wife) started to gave her things to eat. Cause she takes care of the neighbourhood. She will bark at strangers, so at night a very good watch dog.
She got a very good ear. She can be quite far away and yet when we open the house door, she will come right over to check whether we are giving food or not. Besides us, there is also another neighbour who gave her food.
Her puppy is a bit fearful of people, took her long time to get near us. Even now if we go closer to her, she will run away and bark at us. Initially i probably would not able to take the picture of the pup...cause she will hide away at the neighbours drain.
So what do we feed them? Initially just bread and water. Then one day my wife cooked some maggie mee (almost expiring)...doggie finished the mee fast..:) Bought some cheap biscuits to feed them too. When we eat outside...got any leftovers, will bring home for them too. She is more of a night dog....day time...sleeps. The photos i taken of them, evening time.
Usually feed them around 6pm. A few times we came home late and she will make a 'complaint' sound...as if telling us "why is our dinner so late?"...:) The sound is different from the normal dog sound..:)
At night, when i turned into my lorong, she seems to recognise my car and from far can see her wagging her tail and coming towards my car.
She understand simple command like 'wait' (she usually does this when waiting for her food)...and 'shake a leg'....i use my leg to shake her paw...haha. She will automatically use her left paw and after that her right paw. She seems to be a smart dog only bad thing is, she does not like to share food with her puppy. So we have to use to bowls.
My wife sometimes will give her massage..she loves it and will sit very still. Too bad her puppy still afraid of us..otherwise will 'manja' her too..:)
Oh ya...she has eaten cheesecake, strawberry toast, chocolate cookies, pancakes (almost expire), hot dogs with mee and because of this...sometimes she will eat slow...if we give her biscults to eat. Good food, she will finish under 2 minutes.
One thing about the puppy, her tail i think is quite long, she will sometimes chase its tail..running round and round and seems irritated about it.
Hehe...that is all for now.
Her 'waiting' position for food. See the puppy moving...still afraid of us.
