agony aunt

Greetings Fellow Pekies,

Can you believe that it is Monday again… already!It seems as though the weeks are just flying by in the wink of an eye and one of these days it will be Christmas again…

Are you one of those dog-owners who insist that “My dog understands exactly what I am saying to him” and damn anyone who disagrees with you?

Well, you may actually be right about that, if the results of a new research study are anything to go by…

agony aunt

Greetings Fellow Pekies,

We thought that we would once again do a bit of a light post to get you all in a good mood on a Monday which will hopefully stretch through the rest of the week.

Our paralympians have garnered 3 Gold; 1 Silver and 1 Bronze Medals so far and we wish them everything of the best for the rest of the Games.

GO Amakrokokroko, South Africa is behind you all the way!‪#‎TeamSARise‬ !!

In the spirit of the above, we thought it fit to keep things light today and are therefore going to share some more wonderful, weird and just plain FUN facts about dogs with you.

While this is a fun post, it is also all true – these are some of the records as per the Guinness Book of World Records 2017.

We hope that you have fun reading about these Guinness World Record-holding dawgs.

50 More Fun Facts about Dogs

Greetings Fellow Pekies,

Well, the voting is over; the Olympics are done with; and Caster won the Diamond Trophy ( a very illustrious international award).

The state of politics, the government, parastatals, crime  and the economy are still all very stressful for most Saffas, so we thought that we would once again do a FUN post to get you all in a good mood at the beginning of the week – nobody likes Mondays anyway, so enjoy the read and smile-a-while.

The Paralympics start on Wednesday, and we would like to wish all of our Paralympic Athletes Good Luck! Our paralympians generally do us very proud at the Olympics, and we fully expect them to do so again in Rio 2016.

GO Amakrokokroko, South Africa is behind you all the way!‪#‎TeamSARise‬ !!

Does Your Pekingese Suffer from Small Dog Syndrome?

agony aunt

Greetings Fellow Pekies,

The Pekingese is a very brave little dog; sensitive, independent and extremely affectionate with their masters, they make wonderful companions. They also make great watchdogs, but one must be careful that your peke does not develop Small Dog Syndrome.

Small Dog Syndrome is when a little dog, through human induced behaviours, believes that it is pack leader to its humans. This can result in varying degrees of negative behaviour such as to being obstinate, self-willed or jealous; separation anxiety, guarding, growling, snapping, biting, and obsessive barking.

Many individuals prefer larger dogs because they find small dogs to be yappy and snappy, jealous, protective, wary of strangers and not the greatest of child companions. Unfortunately this myth has persisted for so long that many accept it as fact, and it is actually not true – this type of behaviour is learned from the way little dogs are generally treated by humans.

Greetings Fellow Pekies,

South Africans are starting off the week in a great mood thanks to our wonderful Olympic Athletes who have done us SO proud.

We would firstly like to say – Well Done and Thank You, ‪#‎TeamSARise‬ !!  Our athletes are bringing home TEN medals from Rio 2016, which equals the all-time high achieved only twice before; in 1920 & 1952.

We are all extremely proud of each and every one of you and are #ProudlySouthAfrican.

In the spirit of the whole country being in such a great mood (which we need after the political stress of the past few months), we thought it fit to keep things light today and are therefore going to share some wonderful, weird and just plain FUN facts about dogs with you.
