Dogs are not our whole life but they make our life whole… Saangchai and Soi Dogs…

Having just returned from my few days away I am still playing catchup…So I thought as Saangchai missed me I would repost one of his earlier posts which also has a link to Soi Dogs the wonderful organisation where we got Saangchai from…Without them, there would be so many more stray dogs on the streets…I will now hand you over to Saangchai…

Yeah…I get to chat with you…Woof…First time in a while but hopefully my mistress will let me on here much more… For now, this is an earlier one I wrote when I was just a puppy… Now I am grown up I don’t chew any more…and I let her friends in now although I do give them the once over a little warning scowl( growl)…

It just fell apart!

It seems like everything I just “lick” falls apart…….well maybe..just maybe I chew it a little bit……Hey, peeps welcome to my Monday blog… have you noticed that I don’t say ” woof ” so often?

It ‘s because my mistress…. she doesn’t like it and I think I am just going to have to do as I am told.

Her friends came round..again!……..So I barked… well I did growl too……but they came in any way and my mistress she got her…you will do as you are told voice on…and kept saying NO!

What’s a boy to do?  anyway I gave one last  ” woof ” and lay down beside her…but that lady seemed very nice, I slowly crept under the table towards her….she let me lick and smell her hand…she seems ok..maybe next time  I’ll be nice….she smelt of lots of other dogs so maybe she has forever dogs too..she must be ok…..my mistress is pretty cool so if she says it’s ok ….

Yehhhhh little master is here, we have so much fun…he plays and rolls about with me…today he is excited and keeps saying we are going to the beach..what’s the beach?

Anyway off we go in the truck… it wasn’t very far and I wasn’t sick..hehe…he is good fun!

Oh, this is nice and soft and I can dig holes! We run and run and went down to the water it was much bigger than that lake the other day…my mistress splashed me and it was fun…but then those things they call ” waves ” they chased me……I run off…  it scared me!

My little master and my mistress gave me lots of pats and told me it was ok…but..those waves still chased me…

SAM_7095 SAM_7096 SAM_7097 SAM_7098 SAM_7099 SAM_7100But It was fun we played ball and my little master can run really fast… just like me…my mistress wouldn’t let me off the lead…she said maybe next time…she is worried I might run off…but come on…would I?

My mistress has asked me if I can tell you my lovely readers about “Soi  Dogs”..she was watching something yesterday and she kept wiping her eyes ..these humans are silly sometimes ….she cuddled me and was really sad for a little while…

Ok..then I’ll do it……please read this and if you can give one of my furry friends a ” forever home”  like me or just……donate some money…what’s money?  I don’t use that!

BUT ANYWAY….here is the link…. please watch it as I don’t want my mistress to be sad…….and if you help…woof, woof…I won’t bark at you if you come to my home…..DEAL?

About Carol Taylor:

Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them.

I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.

Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and wellbeing.

The environment is also something I am passionate about and there will be more on this on my blog this year

Exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…….Then, I will be happy!

Thank you once again for reading this post I hope you all have a creative week ahead xx

Dogs are not our whole life but they make our life whole…….Week 2 in the life of Saang Chai.

SAM_7043But my forever mummy she told my master off for not watching me but he was busy in the garden so he sort of was…..  he now has another job woof( ooops).But my mummy said it’s an old house and it had to be done, so don’t worry …but she also told me not to do  it again and went and bought me a big bone to chew…was I in doggy heaven or was I in doggy heaven…woof woof……and she said I was a really good boy because I…

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

Another day in the life of Saangchai…I do hope you enjoy and maybe you will consider getting a soi dog who needs a forever home? enjoy your Sunday

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…

Properly trained, man can be a dog’s best friend!

Another post from my archives on the Soi Dogs of Thailand… I hope that some of you if you are thinking of getting a dog or puppy consider the numerous dogs who have been neglected , abandoned and all awaiting a good home, A forever home….xxx

Retired? No one told me!

Anyone who has been or lived in Thailand knows that they have a huge stray dog population. I also have many friends who have ” adopted ” stray’s/street dogs and generally it is in the plural.

Come on who can resist a sad face particularly when it’s a cute puppy or a dog who looks as if he just needs a cuddle, a clean bed and nice food instead of begging for scraps or going down the bins as many do.

Or if they have been badly treated, badly bitten in fights because dogs can be vicious when fighting another dog or humans they can be equally as vicious to our furry friends.

Prapas Pinyocheep, director of the Bureau of Disease Control and Veterinary Services, said on Monday the latest nationwide survey of the dog population, in 2014, concluded there were around 8.5 million dogs… 700,000 are considered to be  strays and…

There are lots of Soi dogs here they make terrible noises at night always barking and yowling and those 3 that live opposite me..what yappers they are ..it drives me mad..I just get comfortable lying in the sun and someone goes past and yap, yap yap..woof… but the cute little dog next door is very nice…woof , woof and we have fun when she comes out to play and we run and chase my little mistress while she rides her bike..she is nice though she laughs at me and cuddles me and gives me treats…woof but my mistress says I eat too many and she is not to give them to me unless she says so..woof

She does cook me nice food though and I get yummy marrow bones as a treat…I am not allowed to have that tinned stuff…woof that’s what she calls it…says it bad for me…My master says he is just a dog!

Life of a Street Dog( Soi Dog) called Saang Chai.

Woof and lots of tail wagging because I now have my forever home.

SAM_7052

I met my mistresses neighbours yesterday ..they asked..because I keep growling at her when she comes out to peg her washing on the line..woof..I don’t mean it I just don’t really trust anyone when I don’t know them because I have been kicked a few times…woof..and it hurts…….Now I have my forever home I know that they will not hurt me like that…woof

I did bark a little bit but my mistress was there and then the lady let me sniff her..she smelt ok…I don’t think she will hurt me so next time maybe I won’t bark so much.

They left me indoors last night on my own…. only for a little while…….it was quite dark and we had no lights  I heard them say it was a power cut again..so they went to get something to eat….it came on soon after they left but I couldn’t get a signal on my i-phone..woof..to let them know…woof

They left me my dinner and a bone so I chewed that for a while ..checked out the garden and came inside to wait……..When they came back I heard my little master telling my mistress I had chewed her furniture. she didn’t believe him …….they were laughing and trying to make her angry I think ..but I hadn’t… wasn’t I good?….I got lots of pats and good boys…woof……

Laters chat next week ..woof
