In 2007, my parents adopted Bizcuit (formerly PiPi ) from SPCA. Bizcuit clung to my mother and even dug his claws into her shoulders and simply refused to let her go home without him. His pleading cries and eager big brown eyes were irresistible and Bizcuit was soon homeward bound!
My father passed away very shortly after Bizcuit came home with us, so my husband, Robin and I took over as parents to Bizcuit. We simply fell in love with him. With the passing of my father, the departure of my best friend and only sister to Australia, and the turmoil of family politics, I sunk into severe depression and developed PTSD. After having to seek professional help and medication, this did not quite help at all. I found that dedicating my time as a new found mother to Bizcuit did the trick!
Loving and caring for Bizcuit all these years has reaped amazing results for both my husband and myself, in our marriage as well as individuals. Bizcuit has reciprocated with so much love, laughter, joy and peace in our home. We cannot imagine life without Bizcuit anymore.
Today, we celebrated Bizcuit's 7th Gotcha Year with members of the Singapore Bichon Club. I have never felt so elated and truly blessed with Bizcuit who helped make us so many good friends. Bizcuit is not pedigree. He's a Cross Bichon-Poodle, but the good people of this Club simply adore him all the same, and are very supportive of adoption. They have gifted Bizcuit with so many thoughtful presents.
Robin and I are so grateful for the love, support and friendship. Bizcuit would like to keep all the toys, clothes and snacks given and share them with his little brother Tiny (a rust coloured Poodle, who's also adopted). We would love to share all his gift certificates and ang pows with his fellow friends at the SPCA, generously gifted by Clement and Jessy Lee, Pearly Tan, Vanessa and Leslie.
Here is a big thank you to all at the Singapore Bichon Club.
We pray that Bizcuit's blessings received from these wonderful people will spread the same love, joy and peace to all the rescued doggies at SPCA. We hope that they will soon find forever homes as Bizcuit has done for us in these seven years.
