Day trip to Wulai Waterfalls 烏來瀑布

It was a perfect day for a road trip on one of the days after my Dr. Dog service at the hospital.


Let me think of a place to go!


I looked to the left


and to the right....no one in sight! Maybe I should play some fetch first.


Lift off!!!


Got it!

Such a good weather, I think we should check out Wulai.

Wulai is a tourist town well known for its hot springs, sightseeing, and aboriginal culture. It is also a popular place to see cherry blossoms in spring.

Our first stop is the famous 80 meters high Wulai Waterfall (烏來瀑布).


Here it is!


Err....that's all?


That's quite a sad trickle of water. Seriously I expected more of it, I was thinking of seeing something like The Niagara Falls!


At least the magnificent view and fresh air made up for the sad looking waterfall.


This is the cable car that takes you to Yun-xian Theme Park (雲仙樂園) which is on top of the mountain hill. We were told that the building of a man-made lake at the park resulted in the significant decrease of water at the waterfall. Such a pity!


Time for lunch!


We are going to try some Aboriginal Tribe food.


Steamed sticky rice in bamboo tube


Chicken!


Freshwater fish cooked in two ways, steamed and


boiled in soup.


Bitter gourd with salted egg and fried noodles.

All paws up for the fresh and yummy food and then we said bye bye to the miserable waterfall.

喬巴:有人可以帶我回家嗎~?

年輕親人又聰明的德國狼犬徵求領養

名字:Joba 喬巴
品種:德國狼犬
年齡:約一歲
性別:公,未結紮
體重:24.5kg(營養不良,過瘦)
個性:親人、愛撒嬌、學習能力強、較敏感。
健康狀況:目前鉤蟲、疥癬治療中,預計一個月內可以康復。

喬巴的故事...

大約一週前,喬巴在北投國小附近的社區流浪,又病又瘦的倒在人家公寓門口,但體積實在太大,幾天後由豆花店老闆娘收留在店旁邊的巷子裡。喬巴這時已經虛弱到又吐又拉無法進食,也站不起來了,好心的老闆娘請醫生親自過來幫他吊了好幾袋點滴後,才慢慢的恢復體力。

剛好朋友到這有名的豆花店吃豆花,看到老闆娘牽著巨大的喬巴,被他溫馴又可憐的樣子打動,也得知老闆娘沒有辦法長期收留他,甚至已有很多人建議要把喬巴送到收容所去,於是開始四處打聽有沒有人可以收留他。

就這樣...我去看過喬巴,稍微觀察一下他的行為與狀況後,魯家的排名....到J了。
喬巴的名字來自於有名的漫畫海賊王,看起來很搞笑,不過自己覺得蠻有涵義的啦~下次再來波,不准笑他~

喬巴送來的第一天就到醫院報到,檢查結果:
1.鉤蟲-導致腸道出血,吃藥治療後排便已幾乎正常,預計本週內會痊癒。
2.疥癬-所以皮膚超級癢,多處掉毛,已經開始打針,一個月內應該會好。
3.四合一ok。
4.血檢:營養不良、貧血,白血球指數因腸道發炎而偏高,其他沒有問題。

目前正在為喬巴進行的訓練:
1.籠內訓練
2.腳側隨行
3.生活禮儀(不上沙發,不聞桌子,不追貓,不玩不該動的東西,坐機車..等),大小便都在外解決,在家會憋.
4.已學會的指令:坐下,趴下,off(他才來兩天!!)

喬巴個性超級親人,非常會ㄋㄞ,也很溫和,有被機車小魯欺負到。他學習事物的能力超強,但憨憨的不固執,相信他會是非常好(又帥氣)的伴侶寵物,要訓練成狗醫生也是沒有問題的。

備註:
1.領養人須年滿20歲
2.領養時須簽署領養切結書,包含植入晶片、結紮等事項
3.喬巴的咬合有缺陷(鯊魚嘴),不影響正常生活,請注意喔!
4.請領養人與我平攤喬巴的醫療費用(有收據為證).

請大家多多幫忙轉貼喬巴的送養文,讓他可以快點找到溫暖的家~

Let's go to Wufenpu Wholesale Fashion Market!

Aunty Rena and Uncle Vincent visited me last month and I was their tour guide for a few days. Besides bringing them to my usual haunts, I also brought them to the Wufenpu Shopping Area (五分埔).



There are more than a thousand shops there, there are stuff for kids, men and women, but unfortunately, I did not see any for dogs.


Clothes....


and more clothes! :( Hey! Dogs need retail therapy too!

Now, let me take you on a little tour of the fashion market:
