in the rousing and cheering crowd, Master Wu Guay (the old wise tortoise)was awaiting for the chosen one, and out of a sudden, there was an absolute silence. Master Wu Guay speaks while pointing to panda “He is the chosen ONE.. lets all applause to the chosen ONE!” Does this liner and description sounds familiar to you, if it is not, its actually from the movie –> Kungfu Panda. And its here that we got our “son” his name and abbreviation – Wu Guay (WG). or shall say its only partly from the movie. i shall tell you in more detail as we go further..
WG was an abandoned dog and was found by my FIL as it was nearly knocked down by a car.. my nephew then went over to carry it back to my MIL’s place. Later that evening, hubby told me about this dog and after having a quick dinner, we rushed over to take a look at this poor little one.. MIL told us that they were not able to keep the dog as their own family dog (Mickey) was getting territorial and it would be difficult to have WG around.. Hubby and i willingly took WG in.. for the 1st night, it was ‘sleepless in seattle”! seeing WG being so lost in my home, we allowed him into the room to sleep, as i was very sensitive to noises, i could hear his nails ticking the floor all night and it was having diarrhoea and pooed in my room, i had to get up and clean it up. not only that, WG loves to sleep on bed and would jump on our bed when it knows we are asleep, that shaken me up again.. Hubby even had to sleep with WG in the living room the next 2 nights. We were wondering if we are up to it or will it be forever that hubby needs to sleep with WG in the living room? on our wedding anniversary day we decided to call SPCA to report a lost of dog, SPCA came and took the dog. the minute i was on the way up, i started wailing out loud.. i felt so guilty (extreme) and i have not had such feeling in my life before!! we went out for our anniversary dinner to Marmalade Pantry, having the thought of WG at the back of our minds, wondering how WG is doing? will WG understand why we do so? is WG scared as its really dark at SPCA at night? will WG find good owners to let him live happily? will WG hate/blame us? all these thoughts made both of us cried terribly over dinner and drinks.. it was also the 1st time that i have seen Hubby cried so badly..
5 days past, hubby looked at me with wide eyes and told me he saw SPCA’s ad in the newspaper. i sat down and ask hubby honestly if he did thought of bringing WG back, and his answer was YES, so was my answer to myself. Immediately the next day (April 2), hubby called SPCA to claim WG and he had to collect WG by 3pm. Hubby took immediate urgent 1/2 day leave and left during lunch hour to get back WG. I also accompanied hubby to get WG back. The moment we saw WG and it saw us, WG kept whining and it recognises us!!! From den on WG was with us till today… 🙂
Here are some photos of WG’s first days with us..
