SINGAPORE EXPATS FORUM
Singapore Expat Forum and Message Board for Expats in Singapore & Expatriates Relocating to Singapore
Discuss about the latest news & interesting topics, real life experience or other out of topic discussions with locals & expatriates in Singapore.
Truth is employers including expats are getting reliant to maids. Dog walking seems to be part of maids job. And they are not even paid for that extra job (same as car washing).

Yes, the expat family was peacefully strolling and their maid was running back and forth with their spaniel.
I wonder, what is the point of having a dog in the family then?
Day in and day out, I only see the maid walking the dog twice a day (picking up the poo at the same time) when the entire family (angmoh expat also) goes out rollerblading, strolling and cycling on weekends without the dog and pretty much had nothing to do with the dog for the rest of the week...
True story. That family stays around my area.

Without wishing to appear a pedant [:wink:], dogs are one species, vis. Canis lupus familiaris.
I believe you meant to say breed, which is a point well made.
I think she meant species, as she was referring to folks who give dogs human food. Breed specific food ain't a bad idea either though.
