Many of our guests in the past year, have heard a lot of barking going on. This is Fei and Milt Wong’s new puppy Rudy, a happy and sometimes naughty Portugese water dog.
The Wongs have never had a dog before and everyone is very shocked to hear they got one. Fei wanted a dog after all their girls moved out of the house but Milt has never been keen on them and said he’d wanted another child over a dog. Another child for Fei was not an option so a new dog never came.
Over the years, Taku has been home to many dogs, Bear (black lab), Sheeba (German Shepherd) and Shady (golden/black lab). Milt never enjoyed having these dogs around and always shooed them away despite his wife and kids always playing with them. But we knew he turned a corner when he secretly left a bowl of milk
outside for Shady. This bowl of milk also shows how little he knew about dogs. Then Shelagh and Brad brought Jericho (German Shepherd/Chow) into their lives and turned it all around. Fei and Milt became regular babysitters for Jericho who loved spending holidays at Taku. They even started borrowing Jericho on the weekends and Fei based a new car purchase on the fact that Jericho needed more trunk space. Clearly they needed their own dog. Enter Rowdy Rudy…
