    Red face Can some kind soul translate this into Thai for me, please?

    I've got about 10 dogs in a pen in the local temple. I go every day to feed, clean, change water, whatever's needed. Some of the locals have been feeding the dogs the sort of food they give to the temple dogs; rice, chillis, lemongrass, fish/chicken bones etc. I know they mean well, but the food is making my dogs ill (diarrhoea & odd patch of vomiting) & I'm terrified they'll do themselves an injury internally with fish or chicken bones that they're not used to. Plus, all the food being dropped onto the pen floor is a pain in the backside to clean up.

    I'd like to put a notice up to politely ask people not to feed them. I don't want to get anyone's back up - after all, they think they're helping the dogs.

    I thought something like this:

    Thank you for caring about these dogs enough to give them food. However, they are fed every day and don't need any extra. Also, they are not used to Thai food and it is making them have upset stomachs. Please, don't waste your food on these dogs (they have plenty to eat). Instead please give the food to the temple dogs who need it far more.

    Could someone translate that paragraph (or something similar) into Thai for me, please, so I could print it out?

    Thanks so much.

    Roughly translated, this mens:
    These dogs are not for sale, but if you leave a case of pediree chum, you can help yourself to a free dog. They make excellent Thai curry.

    (NR: Are you some kind of mother Theresa for the stray dog community?)
    Good luck with the sign.

    I had a feeling someone would do that! That's why I was going to show the notice to a couple of Thai neighbours and see if they nodded approvingly, gasped in shock, or burst out laughing!

    Apologies, Mr Pot. I mistakenly believed that you had written something about the edible qualities of the dogs (mainly due to my own belief that someone would try that!)

    Thank you very much. I'll get it printed up. and test it out on the neighbours.

    Bad chassamui!!

    Can someone translate this?

    If you can't keep your dogs from roaming the streets, attacking motorbikes and strewing trash all over the road I will be setting rat poison out every night until you learn to be responsible people.
    Thanks.

    Marmite, you can not get the good rat poison anymore, only the kind that kills rats that ingest it and it causes an internal rupture and it is an anti coagulant so that they bleed to death inside.
    At least I can't get the good shit here.

    The neighbour's dogs.

    Tonight was OK though, because I threw rocks at them and they scuttled back into the front garden.

    I wouldn't do it anyway, despite the Midget believing me when I said I was mixing up some mince and poison for the dogs earlier (I was slicing bananas up to go with some ice cream ).

    I was thinking about putting sleeping pills in some ground beef though.

    ขอ ขอบคุณที่ห่วงใยเกี่ยวกับเหล่านี้สุนัขพอที่จะให้พวก เขาอาหาร. แต่พวกเขาจะถูกให้อาหารทุกวันและไม่จำเป็นต้องใดๆเพิ ่มเติม. นอกจากนี้พวกเขาจะไม่ใช้ในการอาหารไทยและจะทำให้พวกเ ขามีหัวเสีย ท้อง. กรุณาอย่าเสียของอาหารสุนัขเหล่านี้ (พวกเขาได้มากมายกิน). แทนที่จะโปรดให้อาหารเพื่อวัดสุนัขที่ต้องการมันเยอะ .

    This is much more like it:

    Thank you for caring about these dogs enough to give them food. But they will be feeding all day and do not need any breaking new Novotel added. In addition, they are not used to Thai food and will. เ legs have made them irritable stomach. Please do not waste food of these dogs. (Many of them eat.) Please give food instead of dog you want to measure it much.

    If you give one of the larger dogs to stroller he will get a proper translation done for you
