Man’s Best Friends

Me and CS watched a television program the day before (Monday) called the “Most Outrageous Pets”. It’s an eye-opener to know there are so many amazing dogs and unbelievable dog services provided outside of our Singapore. I realised there were so many doggies being part of Guinness world records holder too. I did mentioned one of them Puggy the Pekingnese Pup in my earlier post. Check out the other interesting doggies that have blown me away on the show.

 “The World’s Tallest Dog” (2004 Guinness Book of World Records)

Gibson is a Harlequin Great Dane at 42.6 inches (1.08 meters) tall, measured from the ground to the top of his shoulders; measured at 7 feet 1 inch (2.15 meters) all stretched out and standing on his hind legs.

But the most outstanding and memorable dog I reckon is ……

ELWOOD. He is an all American MUTT – part Chinese Crested part Chihuahua who came in as 2007 winner of the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest. He is special and unique in his way and I salute to Elwood’s owner, Karen in her efforts by giving back to society. What she has done with Elwood by spreading awareness of Homeless Animals and those with Special Needs is incontestable. She even had a book written called “Everyone Loves Elwood“. Their story touches my heart especially having the kids to see the other side of beauty. I recalled on the TV show, one of the sweet little girls said, “Elwood should be the world’s cutest dog.” It simply melts my heart hearing that.

We Love Elwood Too!!!

Tongue Twister

Do you realise Le Le has a distintive feature among the photos?

Yes, it’s her long tongue. Her tongue seems to grow when she get exhausted. It looks exceptionally long for her build and once bitten herself while playing in the field.

But lele’s distintive tongue is no match for Puggy the Pekingese Pup. Puggy has the Guinness World Record for the longest dog tongue measuring 4.5 inches (11.43cm) long. WOW…. More importantly, Puggy has a family who loves and adore him regardless of his imperfection. Beauty lies in the eye of beholder. I give my utmost respect to Puggy family and wishes them all the best and Puggy happily always.
