FREDDIE IS VERY SICK BUT WE GOT HIM IN TIME. Blood parasites one of the biggest killers of Thai dogs have attacked poor blind Freddie. The vet suspects that the ordeal Freddie had when he fell off his bowl and got trapped sent him into shock. We didn't find him until 11.00 p.m.

This lowered his immune system and the blood parasites took no time to attack. 2 types aswell. E-canis which is mild and Anaplasmosis which is far more vicious. Carried by ticks and fleas, I include fleas as I've never seen a tick on Freddie but he has had fleas in the past. These blood parasites may have been dormant in his body for years waiting for the chance to attack. They had that chance 3 nights ago.

His blood work is good with his kidney and liver readings normal. Freddie is already finding it difficult to walk and he could have become paralysed in a few days without treatment. The pain he's suffering indicates the blood parasites have attacked his muscles. He didn't eat for one day but happily he's eating special food now and he's drinking a lot of water. We haven't had to put him on a drip and we're keeping him warm with his smart jacket!

His girlfriend Chabba is staying close to him.
When I checked about 8.00 p.m. last night she was lying beside him.

Thank you to everyone who is concerned about Freddie. I will send regular updates.
Donations or sponsors for Freddie would be fantastic. Visit our sponsorship page on our website to see our rates. He's such a deserving dog. Thank you

This sweet funny dog has shown us so many sides of his character since he was cruelly hit by a car and left in screaming agony.
We know he likes his bed to be just how he likes it.

No smelly dirty pampers for Somkit. If we've overlooked something it gets thrown off his bed. He was very happy with his new pink rugs this evening but they weren't quite right for him. Hence the re-organisation. Somkit moves from strength to strength.

If you'd like to help Somkit reach his goal please look at his fundraiser It still has some way to go just like Somkit Thank you

We don't know how long he was wedged behind the bowl he loves to stand on and the fence. We heard him at 11.00p.m when Thep went out to check. He must have been terrified cos he's blind.

Today he hasn't eaten anything and is very disoriented. Thep took him to the vet who was closed cos his house was damaged by the floods. He drank a lot of water and the vet said give him Vitamin B12. Freddie's been in our house all day mostly lying down. Hopefully he'll feel better tomorrow.

2ND MASSIVE STORM IN LESS THAN 2 WEEKS. The force of the wind and rain was almost at typhoon strength. The poor dogs weren't happy but they kept together for warmth.

A big thank you for Mari and April for bringing some great raincoats amongst their fantastic donations all the way from Scotland! They definitely made a difference to the dogs who love to stand in the rain and get soaking wet.
The morning was kind letting us give the dogs their food and special diets. We also had time to make some of the pens more waterproof against the deluges which come every 2 or 3 hours. Then the electricity cut for about 14 hours just as I was posting this last night!!!!

Watch the last part of this video and you'll see what I'm talking about. Even that downpour wasn't as strong as previous ones. Not a dog in sight! At least we know 60 dogs are dry and warm undercover.

Thep had to get out of bed at 11.00 p.m. to check on a dog crying. It was blind Freddie who had fallen down behind an upturned bowl he loves to stand on. He must have slipped off and would have got drenched by the continuing storms throughout the night.

Thank you to those of you who contacted us wanting to know we're all safe.

 Prasert Hit by Speeding Car

Prasert was dragged from the road by his owner who witnessed a car hit him without breaking or stopping.  She immediately alerted us.  Thankfully Prasert lives at the end of our road so we rushed to his aid quickly.  We found him lying in a pool of blood unable to move and clearly in pain.  We cleaned and bandaged his deep wounds, gave him an antibiotic injection and pain killer and then phoned the vet for further advice.  Being Sunday he wasn’t open but he promised to be back before dark and at  7.00 p.m. he phoned to say he had arrived at his clinic.   It took the vet 2 hours to clean, stitch and insert drainage tube in the deep wound which thankfully hadn’t pierced his heart but he thought Prasert’s spine might be broken.  We nursed Prasert for 2 months, his wounds healed and he’s now walking and back home.
