adopt a dog

Lost and found Golden retriever 

Last weekend I found this golden retriever in my garden whimpering cos there was a thunderstorm.  The next morning I found out she belongs to a neighbour. 

Since then she sneaks over everyday to keep me company and goes home to eat.  I think she has adopted me as her human and today I will send her home with a note.  

Happy thanksgiving 🐶🐶

About CONSTANCE  and the great things she does:

Constance started her journey being a social worker in New York working with the homeless population living with mental-illness and HIV/AIDS. She also received a full scholarship from the New York City government to pursue her MSW. After moving to Hong Kong in 2010, she joined City University of Hong Kong and was in charge of running its university-wide service-learning program, in partnership with over 20 community organizations. We are so lucky to have her here in our community.

If you have followed the blog for a while, you would have seen the original sketch of Chiko. I am Chiko’s “aunt”. My good friends adopted him from SPCA a few years ago. We think he is a soft coated Wheaten Terrier. For the month of Movember, my friends are growing a moustache and so is Chiko, he really is. Below is his new hair cut showing off his moustache ;p

Sketch of the day no 31: Chiko the Terrapoo

This sketch is of Chiko. My friends adopted him from SPCA in Ampang. He’s 3 years old and a part time model. I’m officially his aunt ;p

We call him a terrapoo because he is a wheaten terrier cross breed but he is a bit of a bully when we take him for walks, so little terror is an apt description. At home he is the loveliest sweeetest addition to the family.
