Hey everyone! My name is Lexie (@the.golden.lexie) and I’m a one-year-old golden retriever and dachshund mix living in Singapore. This is a pretty fabulous place to live for any dog or human, but I must admit, this year has definitely been a strange one, with the pandemic putting our lives on pause and leaving us stuck in our homes. My human and I thought it was only fitting to share more about our country Singapore through a day in the life blog – hopefully, this inspires you to visit one day (and maybe with your pups as well!)
Singapore is a small country that is known as a garden city due to her mix of greenery and concrete landscape. This makes for comfortable walks and plenty of sniffing opportunities. We experience summer here 24/7, so I have opted for my comfy max-bone Rose bowtie. I love this bowtie because it also functions as a soft collar – perfect for walks in the city when you want to be functional yet stylish! For the leash, I have chosen my favorite max-bone jewel jet leash – because who doesn’t want to look classy and expensive walking in the streets?
You’ll be pleased to know, that Singapore is brimming with wonderful pet-friendly cafes that allow dogs their rightful place right by your side. My favorite is the outdoor seating at The Coastal Settlement, in Changi. The food here is truly amazing so make sure to bring your appetite. Another great choice is the Sun Ray Café, which actually has a room for us pets to play in while you choose from gourmet treats for both humans and dogs.
After grabbing some brunch with the humans, we head to the Apple Store along Orchard Road. I love going there because the entire store is dog friendly! You can shop freely for your favorite Apple devices with your pup right by your side. I made friends with many humans and got a belly rub.
After leaving the Apple store, we decide to do some window shopping along Orchard Road – the main shopping street in Singapore for high fashion. This place gets really crowded during the weekends, especially at night with all its lights!
Other times, when I’m in the mood for a good run around rather than a walk, my human and I take advantage of the many fenced in dog run areas around the city. The Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, for instance, spans over 3km, or you can try the West Coast or the Katong Parks, which are also both excellent choices.
Since the weather here is warm, my humans always remember to give me short breaks. We suggest bringing along a water bowl like this max-bone travel bowl. It’s collapsible and convenient to bring around.
Of course, a break is not a break without a treat! My humans only believe in getting nutritious treats for me, and we love this range of snacks from maxbone. They love the wholesome ingredients that are not only good for me but also taste delicious! It’s very important for both humans and dogs to stay hydrated and keep a healthy snack nearby when exploring Singapore on foot.
After more window shopping and getting pats from strangers, it’s time to head home. My humans are particular about keeping their car clean and they also want to make sure that I have a comfortable ride in the car. This max-bone car seat is perfect for all our car rides in the city.
And that’s it! A day in the life of a city pup living in beautiful Singapore. There’s so much more to this amazing place and we wish we could show you all of it. In the meantime, remember to stay safe, and once your start planning a trip when all this is all over, consider all of the local rules for dogs entering Singapore to ensure smooth and safe travels.
