The apple of my eye

I have been waiting to post about this for so long. Now that I have my new camera phone, it was easy to snap a memorable picture when ever I like.

This is Jojo, the apple of my eye. It has been so long since I last posted about her. We had just celebrated her 2nd birthday about a month ago. She’s 2 years old now. I could still remember how small she is when we had her at age 3 months old. That is just how time flies. She’s a bit bigger in size now but still consider as very small. I think it’s already her maximum growth. She won’t be growing any bigger now. The only major difference that we would be seeing is her fur coat colour changing. I heard a friend of mine who has the same dog breed mention to me that this breed will change colour over time. Indeed, it is true! Jojo’s fur was really dark all over when she was a puppy and it gradually turns lighter when she grows. I am fascinated by the many different colours she has now.

Although she an Australian Silky Terrier, she has a naturally curly fur. Probably puppies and the young have some sort of curly fur and it will be straighten up when they grow older later. Well, I’m not sure… I check out pictures of the same breed over the internet and saw that all of them have straight silky smooth fur. Don’t tell me they do re-bonding too!? Hahaha…. Anyway, Jojo does have a silky looking coat especially at her back and I love her just the way she is.




(Left pic) Jojo as a puppy - 3 months old. Look at how dark her fur is...
(Right pic) Jojo at 6 months old. Fur was longer and she looks chubby because of it.

This is now - at 2 years old. This picture taken right after I groom her after her bath. After patiently trains her for so long, she now enjoys having me comb her fur nicely (with all the sweet talk and praising how pretty she is of course!)

This is how she bahaves everytime I comes home. She want's lots of pampering, hugs and kisses. Like people to scratch-scratch her belly.

When she sees me wake up in the morning, she wants more pampering, hugs and kisses. Also cannot miss out the belly scratching comfort which is a need each time she lies down cutely on her back. Notice her smile here? That's how happy and "cunning" she looks when she wants something and she gets it.
