Picture the gang hosting a small B&B in the middle of rice fields. But before they make the decision about this investment and decide to give up their carefree lives on the streets in Chiang Mai they really want to know if there will be customers because you know, once they’ve started they can’t go back ????❤❤❤❤ ………………………………. It will be in northern Thailand, between a traditional town of Chiang Kum and a small border town to Laos. It is approximately 70 km from Chiang Rai, a big city with an international airport. ……………………………… The place is unknown to most international tourists and not as “touristy” as other towns closer to Chiang Mai. The area has several peaceful biking routes. There are also many waterfalls and trekking routes only accessible if accompanied by local rangers. ……………………………….. They will accept early booking, DM me if you are interested, I will send you more details. #adoptdontshop #travelthailand
❤ this pic from when Ploy was still here with us happily waiting for her turn to eat (4th of my 2016’s best 9). —————————————– *IMPORTANT message to Lee Jae Myung @2_jaemyung* we are counting on you to do something to really end the dog meat trade at Moran market and hopefully anywhere in South Korea. Please, don’t let us down. S.Korea is a great country and the world is watching. —————————————— Please join me and send @2_jaemyung (#leejaemyung #이재명 ) a message letting him know that many of us are counting on him to make the right decision. Even though we can’t vote but we can make him look good, internationally! ????❤ If you don’t know what’s going on in S.Korea’s dog meat trade situation, please take a minute and read a few posts at @joeyandbailey ❤❤❤❤❤ #welovekorea #bandogmeat #moranmarket #notodogmeat
Joy is already starting to puff up for winter ???????????????? #feedthestrays #streetdogs #adoptdontshop A few people asked me about how Thai stray dogs are being cared for and what do I mean when I call a dog a semi-stray. I have to say I’m so glad that you want to understand and know more about how stray dogs are being treated in Thailand. To answer this I’m going to try to categorize different common stray dogs caring situations that I’ve seen. Level 1: the dogs have to look for food by themselves, no regular feeder. Mostly only because they don’t trust humans. Level 2: has a regular feeder Level 3: has a regular feeder who would arrange for help when he/she is unavailable, also arrange for the dogs to get spayed/neutered and vaccinated. Level 4: level 3 + collars (mostly in Bangkok so the city’s dog catchers won’t take them) + providing blanket, jacket for winter. Level 5: level 3 or level 4 + roaming the street where the feeder lives but for some reason, the feeder just cannot let them live inside the house. To answer your question, I usually call dogs living in level 3, 4 and 5 situations semi-strays. Although, I only have a few years experience of street dogs caring and I only care for just a few groups of street dogs, so any feeders out here are welcome to add and correct me on this ????????????❤
Lets name this girl! ????❤ This is a #maekamountaindog that I have been feeding everytime I drive pass this road. I tried to persuade her to stay at the tourist rest area but she seems to prefer the fire patrol camp 2 km down the road. The problem is there’s no one at the camp during the rainy season and she would be all alone. Good news is, in the past few months, she seems to trust me more and she has a new very shy friend who you can probably see his/her head in the pic. The people at the tourist rest stop called her Kao which I really don’t like because I know at least 5 white dogs named Kao. Since she doesn’t live there anymore.. I want a new name for her.. something cool.. suggestion? #feedthestrays #adoptdontshop #DoiluangNPdog #lovelyhungryJasmine #lovelyhungrydodge
