Pet pictures

I have a two-and-a-half-year-old dog whose name is BB. I named him BB because he looked like a baby when he was a puppy. He was one of the puppies my friend's dog gave birth to. He loves to run and runs for about an hour a day so he is very fit. He likes to eat everything except dog biscuits.

CHIN-CHIN may look innocuous, but he is not. My three-year-old Lhasa apsos's behaviour appears decidedly disturbed. Not only does he love to bare his fangs when bathed, but he also bites when his nails are clipped or his coat is brushed; indeed whenever he feels like it.

Small is beautiful

DESPITE their tiny flat nostrils and eyes that pop out like a goldfish, lightweight pedigrees like the shih tzu and white pekinese are bouncing their way inside young women's jacket pockets and designer leather shoulder bags.
