Daily routine: What TuDou, YüMi & DouDou gets up to every day!

The Panda Chow Chows Tudou, YüMi and DouDou usually wake up around 7:30 am. After they wake up they are taken for a 30 minute walk by the seaside in Sentosa Cove (residential area on Sentosa Island). After their walk, the trio are fed breakfast, usually around 8:45am.

Breafast is served: Boiled egg, gouda cheese, steamed sweet corn, kibble.

After breakfast Tudou, YüMi and DouDou are always very happy and excited and they are ready for play-time. Tudou, YüMi and DouDou will play together, and their owners will also join in on the fun. They have a range of different toys that they love playing with. This includes a few soft toys, namely Moo (the stuffed cow), Toby (the zebra), JiaJia (the panda puppet) to name a few. Play-time normally lasts for about half and hour. When puppies and/or dogs are constantly introduced to different toys with different colours, texture and sounds, it is very good for their brain development as well as their socialisation.

After play time TuDou and DouDou will get sleepy and go to their favourite sleeping spots and get comfortable for their naps. TuDou’s favourite spot is between the coffee table and the sofa and DouDou’s favourite is by the pillar dividing the dinning room and the reception area. YüMi is the queen of napping, but before she settles down for her sleep, she likes to go out onto the balcony by the dinning room and look out at the berth. She will observe the water and the boats for about 10-15 minutes, perhaps day dreaming about being out at sea :) After this, she will walk inside and lie down next to TuDou for her nap.

All three Panda Chow Chows love sleeping and will sleep for several hours until the afternoon. After nap time they often walk around the house with each other and will keep each other entertained playing with their toys together. 

Around 4pm they usually get very energetic and will want to have another play session with their owners. In the afternoons, rather than playing with toys like teddies and chew toys, they like to chase soft balls, baseball caps or each other. This is great exercise for them and they also learn to respect and love each other as a family.

In the evenings around 7pm, as the sun is setting, they are taken for another walk. Their evening walks are usually a little longer for about 40-50min, as the temperature is cooler at this time of the day and they can exercise for longer. They love the sunset walks along the beach road in Sentosa. Chow Chows are by nature quite lazy, so TuDou, YüMi and DouDou often have to be be motivated to exercise, which is very important in maintaining their health. After their evening walk they are fed dinner, which is around 8pm. After dinner they like to sit on the sofa and watch TV with their owners and just hang out as a family.

In Singapore the weather is quite hot and humid so the air conditioning is always on inside the house, 24 hours a day to keep them cool. They have their own bedroom with air-conditioning but they prefer to sleep in the living room, on the sofa or by the staircase leading up to the master bedroom.

Tudou’s favourite pastime is staring at the elevator and waiting for visitors to come by, and he loves chewing on smelly shoes. YüMi loves Chasing cleaning mops, and jumping on and off the living room sofa. Doudou is the most playful one and always likes to wake TuDou and YüMi up from naps to play chase and run around in circles in the living room and dinning room.

All our love,
