Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our life whole.

15 Sep

Folks Please read this excellent post and help the abandoned dogs in Thailand get adopted into Furever Homes. Thank you.

Retired? No one told me!

Day 6 of the life of a Soi Dog called Saang chai who is now our forever friend and companion.

Well the first few days were ok we were just doing a lot of sniffing around and getting to know every nook and cranny. It was strange as I had never lived in a house.I spent my first 4 months on the streets and the man who I belonged to said he would do something nasty to me if somone didn’t take me and my sister away……. so a nice lady took us to Soi Dogs who were very kind to us and we lived with other street puppies in a big run …….but they fed us, gave us injections and an operation..woof not sure about that…lots of people came to see us and my sister went with 1 of them which made me sad but…..then one day a boy and some grownups…
