It was a false alarm after all for radio host and former Miss Hong Kong Sheila Chin Suk-lan. Ms Chin's 15-year-old Samoyed Fok Tau - his name means Lucky Head - faced euthanasia last week after his health apparently deteriorated. 'He was incontinent and kept stumbling last week. He would fall after walking one or two steps and yelp out in pain. I was sad because he seemed to be suffering and there was nothing I could do,' Ms Chin told CitySeen yesterday. Chin eventually decided to put Fok Tau to sleep, but the dog miraculously recovered last weekend after Ms Chin took him out to play. 'I went outside with him because I wanted him to enjoy his last week,' Ms Chin said. 'He jumped around even though he hasn't really been able to walk well for a while because he has rheumatism. And his legs seemed to get better with more exercise.' But Ms Chin had already made an appointment with a vet on Sunday. 'I got the vet to do a blood test on him instead, and it turns out he's in good health for a dog his age.' Samoyeds usually only live for 10 years, and it's most likely just Fok Tau's age catching up with him.
