              Circa 1985. Waldo was Constant's second to last dog with whom he had an extraordinary relationship. According to Constant the dog was exceptionally cheeky and cute. Constant really admired this in him. Waldo's signature trick was that he could catch any ball you threw at him.

                Constant loved animals and had some loyal companions by his side over the years. His last dog was Tikus, who was with Constant from 1990 till his death. When his dog Waldo died in 1989, Constant was heartbroken. In 1990 he decided he was ready for a new companion, so he went to the pound. He was looking for a medium size dog, like Waldo had been. However, a little fluff ball called Tikus had just come in. (Tikus means mouse in Malaysian.) Constant considered him a bit too much the size of a lap dog. However, Tikus had recognised their bond. When Constant came out of the bathroom, Tikus was waiting there for him and Constant gave in. From that moment they were inseparable.

                When Constant passed away in 2005, Tikus died a few days later. They are buried together at Zorgvlied.
