Back in the swim of things


Healthcare worker Nicole Choo, 26, playing with her golden retriever Max at the pool in Sunny Heights, a daycare centre for dogs in Bukit Timah, on Thursday afternoon. It was the first day of the centre's re-opening after it was shut for a month, as some of the centre's canine visitors had developed suspected leptospirosis - a bacterial infection primarily linked to rodents that can be deadly. The authorities are monitoring the situation and investigations are ongoing to identify possible sources of infection, as no rat activity was detected there.
