I was looking through Milo's digital album and they brought back wonderful memories from the past year. Still as vivid and distinct as ever.

From the first picture ever taken when he was brought home at 1-month-old, I remembered letting him out of the crate with just the both of us alone in the house. We were strangers then, not knowing what to expect from each other. Will he pounce on me? Does he bite? He WHINES ALOT, that's for sure.

His first exploration of the new residence, him being too timid to enter my room and sat by the door staring at this unkempt woman typing away on some rectangular box. It didn't take him too long to "gather enough courage" and settled by my chair, sleeping most of the morning away.

Like all first-time pet owners, I get a kick watching his every actions. From the way he sits, yawns, sleeps and tilting his head when he doesn't understand a word that I've said. Some told me their dogs snore. Milo doesn't, or not yet anyway (lol)

As Jack Russells get older, the more hyper they are. Bringing him out for his first walk opened my eyes to how 'perverted' Milo can be! He paid more attention to the women walking past us, and growled at the sight of the male species. Whenever we go on our strolls, I feel like he is the one walking me! The first couple of times, I almost became a banshee, screaming at him to slow down!

Milo can be ANNOYING at times! I used to miss the postmen as I could not hear them knocking on my front door from my room. While I'm thankful to him that I no longer miss any packages, but he barks and growls at anyone who walks past our door. ANYONE! He used to bark at the same old lady in the morning, and the poor lady was clearly shivering with shock. (I've not seen her since, hope she's alright) I've always thought he has more bark than bite, but judging from his recent ferocious attitude to a very forgiving courier guy, the darn pooch sure does pose a potential threat. m(_ _)m

We also can’t forget that dogs are NOSY. All dogs, especially puppies, have to check things out. Milo is NO EXCEPTION. He likes to sniff my clothes and place his scent on everything. Like marking his domain. I AM NOT YOUR TERRITORY, BUDDY! You better not pee on me!

Dear all, I am glad to have shared my moments with him, here at my blog ever since he arrived last October. Now my furry friend is about to turn ONE next month. There's still no plans yet, any suggestions?

PS: The last 4 pictures from the first collage were taken this morning~. (・∀・)

  • hahah so cute... Milo reminds me of my friend's dog. Pepper. passed away this year though. every time I go to her house Pepper will just run towards me. I'll just run away =.=''' I'm scare of dogs, scare that they will biteeee me. :( But Pepper will forget who I am every timme I go, so sometimes he'll bark at me. :(

    then Pepper got a son name Patches who will just wag his tail at any strangers and lick them =.=''' I guess Milo is better at protecting you hahaha.
    all the best in thinking of something for Milo, I've never had a dog before so i'm nt sure how people celebrate dogs' birthday.

    and I've joined the contest. :D
  • Hi Haley, I've read your email. Do spread the word and have friends know about it, yah? :)

    Sorry to heard about Pepper. I think Milo is tad too protective. He is still young afterall. Here's a tip: Bribe him with food and he will love you in no time lol
