A Tribute to Singapore’s very own “Star Dog” – Waggie 1986 to 24th Oct 2001
“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion”

It was the evening of 24th October 2001, I received a call from my maid “I think Waggie cannot pull through this time”. I rush home & saw Waggie lying on the ground, I sit beside him, stroke his head & called his name. He could not respond any more…….. a moment later, urine flow out of his bladder……. he was telling me that he heard me & he waited for me to come home to bid farewell…..

Waggie passed away peacefully on 24th October 2001 at the age of almost 16. Sadly missed by owner, trainer & best friend – Patrick & doggie friends- “What-Oh”, “Waggie-Junior”, “Ted”.

May your “Star” continue to shine in heaven

Waggie, you are the only one in this world who have followed & stayed beside me faithfully for 15 years, in sickness or in health, in poor or in riches ! As I create this webpage for you, I then realised we have gone through so much in life together. No one could ever feel or understand the amount of hardship we have gone through toward successful doggie stardom. It is impossible to have another dog in Singapore to achieve all you have done !!! Your spirit will live in me forever & I will always remember you, buddy. Until we meet again in heaven, may God be with you & your “Star” continue to shine in heaven ! Your Best friend, Patrick


I often see you on TV in some repeated telecast TV dramas, I can remember every moment & every location we were together during the filming, it bring back lots of memories. For the past one year, I did not want to view the photo & video that was taken during your cremation service because that was the saddest day of my life! However, I have decided to upload some of the photo today. You are always on my mind buddy, until we meet again….. may the lord be with you & keep you shining ! Your best Friend, Patrick


It’s been 2 years now, I remember very clearly the evening you pass away. It is like a video playback right in front of me. I will never forget you buddy. Your best Friend, Patrick


It’s the 3rd year now, I always remember the hardship that we went through together. There is no other dog that can replace you in my life. Your best Friend, Patrick


24th October is a heartrending day for me coz it’s the day you left me. You are still my only star dog & I still miss you ! Your best Friend, Patrick


Waggie, I did not forget you. Will still love & remember you always ! Your best Friend, Patrick
