Lovely Easter Long Weekend

I really love spending the long weekend with my little girl but it's so much better when DH is home to be with us during the same weekend!! I normally try to maximise the time that we can spend together as a whole family especially when he's home as the time is so precious. I must admit that having a DH that works away is very hard but you just got to learn to manage and deal with it. It's not easy but it always makes you treasure every single moment even more.

We had a really lovely day yesterday even though our outings were all very impromptu. We started the day with a little bit of shopping. I personally think she had more fun than us!!! She insisted on carrying one of the shopping bags, although I must say, she should carried it since it was her pair of shoes!! LOL

She really enjoyed walking around the shopping centre. She was even stopping and pausing at the shops, literally doing window shopping!! Starting them young eh?? :P

We also stopped at Myer's children department for a short while and I love it that they have a little table and chairs, with papers and crayons!! Sabina was really enjoying herself and seems like she loves to draw too!! Looks like it's about time I should get a small table and chair for her!! Does anyone have any recommendations?

Finally, we ended our fun filled day with a ride on the swings :)

The weather at the moment is absolutely beautiful. I'm looking to many more beautiful days like this :)

Sabina has a thing for doors. Everywhere she goes in the house, if she comes across a door, she must close it, without fail.

It is sort of our little morning routine now, where she will play peekaboo with me. I'll be getting ready in the bathroom and she will close the door. If after awhile, I still don't open the door, she will shout for me, as if saying "Hey Mum, open the door!!"

And when I do open the doors, this is the cheeky face that will greet me :)

After smiling at me, she will quickly close the door again. And this goes on and on and on until I get out of the bathroom.

Isn't she cute!!! I just can't get enough of her and I just want to kiss her all the time!!! There are times I wonder if I'm being a little bit too crazy in love her!! I'm a crazy Mummy!!

Coco is Recovering Well

It has been a few days since Coco had her surgery to remove the bladder stones. I'm so glad that she is recovering very well and is back to her usual self. Didn't even lose her appetite at all!! Well, she never really ever say no to food actually, apart from raw veggie.

As mentioned previously, they managed to take out all the stones in her bladder and the vet sent some off to the laboratory to do some testing, in order to determine what type of stones they are. That way, we can then plan what's the best preventive measures we can take so that the stones will not reoccur again. Well, good news is we got the results today and the stones are struvite stones.

Now that we managed to identify the type of stones, next step is to put her on a special diet. For the rest of her life, she will need to be on a special diet because of her condition and for the time being, the most suitable for her is the w/d Canine Low Fat-Glucose Management-Gastrointestinal Hills Prescription Diet. Haha yes....low fat diet, because she's a little overweight too!!! 9.6 kg!!! Almost one sack of rice!!!

Anyway, it's so good to have her home as she's always by my side, my little faithful companion. She follows me everywhere I go, just like a little shadow :)

Poor Little Coco

Bad things always seem to happen all at the same time. I really do hope that I can see the rainbow soon. 

Coco's been unwell when we noticed she started having pee accidents inside the house. Initially we thought it was just old age and that she couldn't hold her bladder. However, I later found out her pee was bloody and she was having a difficulty in peeing too!! That's when I took her to the vet straight away. First diagnostic was definitely a bladder infection but there's also a possibility of bladder stones reoccurring again. She had them before back in 2011 and they were surgically removed.

We had to do an x-ray on her to determine whether she had bladder stones or not and OMG!!! I was shocked at what I saw. Her bladder was full of stones!!! She must have been unwell for quite a while!!! My poor baby :(

I drop her off for surgery today to remove stones in her bladder and was told by the Vet that the surgery went very well. They found 5-6 big stones (largest was 1.5 cm in diameter) and lots of tiny stones. I hope she will have a speedy recovery and will be able to come home tomorrow.

The house feels a little empty without her. She's always by my side every where I go.
