I grew up in a small town in Ampang. Like many other families, we had 2-3 dogs which were stray dogs and my family kept them. To me, pure breed or mixed not a matter to me. They are equally same, they are adorable and loyal, they are my friends. Whenever I cycled out in the town, they escorted me liked their princess.
My family decided move out from the big family house. I was separated with the doggies. One day my brother's friend gave him a mixed puppy! Finally, we had a dog after few years since we moved. Formally, my first pet. I named him "Bibi", he was my youngest brother in the family. Bibi was really playful, energetic and sometimes very naughty. One day, my mum opened the door and we didn't notice Bibi ran out. We couldn't find him, we even walk and drove around the neighborhood shouting out his name. We didn't found him. We were told the dog catchers came that day. it was a worst day.
My current relationship indeed started from dog shelter - PAWS. We are working in same company and he was the organizer of the company voluntary program. We have been PAWS twice and we continued volunteer in Second Chance. We have just moved into a new house, once settle down we will volunteer ourselves in shelter again.
