cleaned and dried for Chinese New Year
My son's 'pet' - a Teddy bear. hahaha......
We had a live pet once, an extremely adorable and intelligent Shih Tzu puppy named JJ. For a year, he was brutally abused by my foreign students. Whenever I was not looking, one Filipino boy and one Chinese boy would coil his leash round his neck and drag him up two flights of stairs to the upper floor to abuse him.
It was only after I noticed that he was limping that two female students told me the truth. When the vet told me the extent of his injuries, I was furious. My poor puppy had three cracked ribs and a broken hind leg.
Fearing for his safety, I offered him to a neighbour who treated him like her own child. She moved away from our neighbourhood shortly. My son was heartbroken and did not ask for any pet again. My family missed JJ a lot.
