Pet Boarding Bali and Everywhere in The World

  • Post comments:0 Comments

What is it that your furry family needs when they are being put at pet boarding when you are away? It must be very similar to us human when we are going to new places; new people, new scenery, everything new. For some, this could be an exciting adventure, while for others, it could create some anxiety of uncertainty. And of course, for all, there would be questions lingering in the mind, will you come back for me? Unfortunately, we can't simply explain to our pets that it's only temporary, that they are not abandoned or left for long, that we will come back for them. To make their experience away from you easier, some ways that help when you put them in pet boarding, is…

I want to be the person my dog thinks I am.. Locky is my first dog that I can call my own. We used to have many family dogs in the past; Miki, Tiny, Bonnie, Lucu, Cori, Jessy, Bonnie (again), Kiki, Jimmy, Upik, Mopy.They were all adopted except Cori, a German Shepherd we acquired to help us guarding the house. For the rest, we got them through different ways. My cousin picked up Miki wandering alone from the street and brought her home, Tiny, Bonnie and Lucu was the offsprings of Miki with neighbor's dog (back then we didn't know anything about sterilization, I'm not even sure there were vets in our town), we adopted Bonnie and Kiki as puppies, Mopy and Jessy were adopted from family…

The Beach Dogs

Loved by no one, loved by everyone My regular beach visit started in 2013, the year I moved to Bali. On the first weekend after settling down, I went through the paper map (it was still a thing!) and picked a spot to explore nearby, Sindhu beach in Sanur. The great thing about staying in Bali, good beaches are just around you. A little bit of travel and we could find one. So there I was, taking cab (no Grab, Gojek or own transportation yet) in the mid hot Bali sun, walking around the beach, smiling like nuts and being mistaken as foreigner. I remember seeing two dogs playing in the water and was so excited to be part of their pack. I approached them…
