A few weeks ago I took him to your recomended Vets in Sattahip but they were fully booked so I found this other place round the corner called the Thai Navy vetenary clinic next to a motor cycle shop and they did the job and agree it could be better[*] :lol:

I haven't posted here for a while. There have been some dramas worst of which was that Eddy was bitten by a Malayan Pit Viper and was pretty sick and bleeding for 4 days. He's now fully recovered. He of course dispatched the snake just after it managed to get him. He has had his manhood diminished - I feel very guilty - and Patsy has been sterilised, but she was up and running about again after 8 hours.
Other than that they're still the same great dogs. They love anything with wheels and a car is not allowed to leave here without them. They always insist on riding shotgun:

Fred you experienced one of my worst fears "snake,s playing with the dogs"" my lot were as you know keeping PET MICE !! so who knows what will happen when they meet a snake but i get the feeling it will not go well on the mutt more of a worry is how they will manage with fleas and ticks :lol: :lol: they,ve not came across them yet :mrgreen: And the wife insists they are buddhist dogs so will not kill anything ???? I hope the make an exception with the snakes or condo here i come
My lot enjoy hanging out the car window recycling fresh air :( it ai,nt so fresh when i get it the little buggers take it in one end and it exits the other not so fresh then is it ?? :lol: :lol: :lol:

That was mine too, but surprisingly it turned out okay. I had no idea that these snakes were here and they're dangerous but not deadly. The worst part was that his wounds kept bleeding for days and the blood wouldn't clot thanks to the toxin. He didn't need an anti-venim, but was on a drip for some hours, got antibiotics, anti-allergy, anti-pain, anti-anti ......

We take them to the vet mostly every month for an update on the repellent and sometimes it works. The ticks are seen to be taking a stroll on them and at times I've found some on me. The dogs get washed in a special shampoo which also helps for a while. While Eddy was sick I pulled a tick off which was feeding and it left a hole which bled for 2 hours. That was frightening.

Toads, frogs, geckos, lizards, snakes, caterpillars, grasshoppers, field-mice, squirrels, birds ..... are all fair game. If caught, they're played with and if they don't cooperate they're killed and then played with. They are still hunting the squirrels and haven't caught any nor have they got any live birds. They did find a dead one and it became their afternoon snack. :cry:

They love visitors once they know them. People who don't treat them with affection - some people are scared of them - will be barked at relentlessly until they leave. If they get a pat on the head they're friends for life. People who arrive by car get preferential treatment because they appreciate a nice car. The couple of police who patrol here every day have to park their motorbike and spend a few minutes with them because otherwise they'll be circling the motorbike for a long time and not let them go. Other dogs here or within a 500 metre radius are not tolerated. Yours will be the first to arrive by car and so it should be okay. When we are walking in Sattahip with them on a leash they usually respect the other dogs and there's no barking or fighting. When they're riding shotgun they don't bark unless barked at.



A joke:

On the first day, God created the dog and said:

'Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years.'

The dog said: 'That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?'

So God agreed.

On the second day, God created the monkey and said:

'Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span.'

The monkey said: 'Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the Dog did?'

And God agreed.

On the third day, God created the cow and said:

'You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.'

The cow said: 'That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years.. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?'

And God agreed again.

On the fourth day, God created humans and said:

'Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years.'

But the human said: 'Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?'

'Okay,' said God, 'You asked for it.'

So that is why for our first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you.

Okay but what about after this life.. heaven or hell cos I know of this guy who had a near death experience and arrived at the entrance to hell where it was explained to him that he had a choice of 3 rooms. The first which got shown to him was filled with a whole bunch of people standing on their hands which looked pretty uncomfortable. The 2nd was filled with people all standing right on their heads. Oww. And in the 3rd'.. well, the floor was a lot dirtier than in the first two in fact covered with sewerage, very smelly, but otherwise dotted around the room were some tables and chairs and everyone in there was just sitting around drinking tea! Okay I'll have this one he says and got shoved in door locked behind him and this voice shouts "Okay, tea breaks over, back on your heads!" So now you've had life and the worst room in hell explained to you.!

They went in sniffing something, methinks rabbit or lizard, but once inside there was nothing there. I think they did a runner as soon as they saw Eddy and Patsy approaching.

Eddy thought that he read in the dictionary "iPad - noun - a thick piece of soft material":

Almost .... but not quite, he has his earbuds in and is listening to Edith Piaf singing "Padam" on the iPhone's music player. :D

No game, they're allies and colleagues keeping an eye on the land, the neighbourhood and the coast looking out for any possible danger.
