It’s Singapore’s birthday month in August, and this year is extra special because we’re celebrating 50 years of independence!
The jubilee weekend (7-10 August) is going to be filled with exciting activities and promotions for both humans and furkids alike.
Don’t believe me? Here are 5 ways dogs can join in the celebrations.
Now, you can’t go sniffing around without the right outfit, can you? This bandana (S$18) from Puppy Love Doggy Fashion is a must-have for the stylish pup. It comes in three designs, and you can also personalise it with your dog’s name at an additional $5 charge.
Indulge in local delights
It’s the durian season, so be sure to share this delicious Singaporean favourite with your furry one. If you are looking for something fancier, we recommend a durian cheesecake from Superdog Kitchen made just for dogs (we can share this with humans too, but that’s if we are feeling generous).
If your dog is a 100% meat lover, then you won’t go wrong with the good old Bark-kwa from The Barkery Singapore.
What makes Singaporeans tick? A good promotion, of course. Check with your favourite cafes, hotels and stores for SG50 promotions. Here are a couple that we’ve spotted (list will be updated if we come across new offers):

The Singapore Botanic Gardens has recently been inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site! Mama and papa made it a point to bring me there to soak up the celebratory atmosphere.
Other landmarks to visit include Marina Bay, Gardens by the Bay and Sentosa!
As part of the SG50 Concert Series in the Park, there will be awesome pawsome concerts and other activities lined up during the jubilee weekend at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Programme here.
Or bring your pup for Pedestrian Night at Orchard Road on 1 August 2015, for SG50 Red and White Party 2015. A section of Orchard Road will be closed for exciting activities, and you and your dog can soak up the street vibrancy.
