Apart from keeping you company, it seems that owning a dog can improve your social life. Yolanda Choy has just got herself a Samoyed puppy and she just cannot get enough of him. 'I have always wanted a dog and I decided this was the perfect time,' says Yolanda. 'It is nice to come home after a hard day's work to an adoring puppy.' A man's best friend, it seems, can be a woman's too. Yolanda named him Jordan because 'just like me, he seems to like basketball'. But right now Jordan is going through his teething stage, biting everything he can get hold of. Yolanda says she keeps all her expensive shoes and handbags beyond his reach but Jordan has turned his attention elsewhere. 'You should see my walls. They are all chewed!' Jordan seems to be in great demand with all of Yolanda's friends. 'He seems to be the only guy around whenever we have a girls' night out, and my good friend Bernadette Chen has agreed to be his godmother.'
