Prince of the Year!!!

Puppy Cottage's third quarter of the year started off with welcoming of a handsome prince to our cottage.

It was a surprise visit from this Prince of Thailand...yea, he is from Bangkok, Thailand and he has chosen us to be his stop over holiday destination for at least six months before proceeding back to Australia.

Prince, is a male golden retriever and do you believe we have not even seen the King or Queen of this Prince. We, Puppy Cottage would like to express our gratitute for trusting us tremendously in taking care of your son.

1st three months:

As his name has suggested, royal pampering was required from his royal highness. A daily walks of two times are required by him, once in the morning and once in the evening. On top of that, a meal fit for a prince would have to be served to him. Prince knows when is his meal time! When it is feeding time, he will start to sound for his guards to bring his food to him. However, we guess the meal are too delicious till our Prince gain a little weight. :)

Routine Routine Routine...Prince is so used to his regular routine; from morning walk till bed time, he knows when it all should happen. So smart as a prince.

This little Prince has his own tricks of begging for treats and he does it wonderfully well. Below is a picture of him doing his tricks, cute right for a big golden. :P

As a Prince, we guess he is very much used to being the only dog in the palace, thus he had a culture shock when he saw so many friends around him and it took him quite a while to get used to the crowds.

Nevertheless, he has now started to get used to his friends around him although he still has his preference for friends. Below are pictures of him playing with his friends. One of the photo shot is like the story of David versus Goliath in the bible:

Following are few more shots of Prince playing with Snowy, the Siberian Husky and by the way is one of his best friends in our Cottage. Lucky the Border Collie and Milo the American Cocker Spaniel are some of his best friends as well.

Please do stay tune for more on Prince stay with us...

Testimonial from Charlie Parent - Richard and Laura Miller

Hi Puppy Cottage,

For the two months you looked after Charlie while myself and Richard were back in England, as well as all the times beforehand when we were on holiday etc, we were always so happy to leave her in your capable hands and felt safe in the knowledge that she would be looked after with proper care, love and affection. Being away from Charlie for ten weeks was so hard for me - I watched her on your CCTV service once but this made me miss her even more!! But I knew that she would be fine with you guys and enjoying her stay with you.

For anyone that is looking for boarding or grooming services in KL I cannot recommend Puppy Cottage highly enough. All of the dogs that you look after are so happy to be in your care and treated just like family pets.

One thing I will always remember is when we dropped Charlie off to stay with you for almost three weeks while we returned to England for a holiday in 2008. At the time that we left her Charlie was receiving medication and treatment for her skin and coat - Pugs are prone to skin problems and her coat was suffering terribly. We felt so guilty leaving her but were at the same time happy that she was staying with you guys where we knew she would be watched over carefully. We were confident that you would make sure that she was given her medication and oitment as prescribed by the vet and would let us know if there were any problems. When we collected Charlie from Puppy Cottage we were delighted to see that she had totally recovered and her skin and coat were in the best condition ever! This really is a credit to all of the staff at Puppy Cottage that you really do care about the welfare of the animals and listen to the owners and their concerns.

I think that Charlie's time with Puppy Cottage has benefitted her in that she did not get to meet other dogs a lot - there were no other dogs in our apartment block etc - and therefore she got used to being in the company of other dogs. Ryan I am sure you will remember how scared Charlie was the first time we left her with you way back in 2008 and seeing the pictures of her playing with Suki and Nila were just wonderful - we have you guys to thank for enabling Charlie to mix with other dogs without being frightened.

Lastly we have to thank you for introducing us to Dr Karu who organised all of Charlie's immigration requirements. Without your help we would have never been able to get Charlie back to the UK so both myself and Richard would like to say a huge thank you to all of you at Puppy Cottage for all of your help and support over the last two years.

Myself, Richard and Charlie wish you guys all the best for the future and will always be grateful to Puppy Cottage for looking after Charlie so well for us during our time in KL.

Thank you again

Laura, Richard and Charlie
