    You are definitely entitled to your perspective, it just isn't mine. I do not go around feeding stray dogs. In fact, I shy away from all soi dogs since I do not know what disease they may have or transmit.

    I also hate to see hungry or suffering animals. Maybe I am too sentimental, but I do realize the problem in Thailand can not be fixed in my lifetime.

    Too sentimental, especially if you are eating animals at the same time as feeling 'sorry' for their suffering. Thailand's stray dog problem could be fixed in months if anyone really cared.

    Well Rick, would you believe it? A local barber not so long ago bought an Alsatian near me in the UK. Grew into a lovely animal (mottled coat instead of the usual black and tan). I hadn't seen it for a while and last night he told me somebody had poisoned it and killed it (as has happened elsewhere in London). Seems to be a new 'craze', jealous people possibly?

    Xanax, I have not eaten dog lately, to my knowledge. I may have eaten it in Mexico at some point without me knowing it, but I am pretty sure I have never ordered any.

    The correlation of eating other animals and having feelings about those that suffer is a very weak argument.

    Does this mean to say that you would be prepared to commit suicide if the soi dogs were to benefit from your demise ? Good on you, mate, that's what I call compassion for animals !

    Silly post. Of course I would commit suicide if it meant ending the suffering of all animals.

    No, just a new type of invasive species, get used to it you sentimental dog lovers, some religions that now live in your London, do not see a Dog in the same light as you do.

    Pretty obvious that you are an American and speak a different language.

    Yes, we should never have allowed you to become independent. It's all our fault.

    I thought you were Welsh. My understanding is that we gained independence from the English. Same same?

    Different. It was a Welsh guy who wrote your constitution.

    We have a lot to answer for.

    Rick...This just smells like a prelude to a worse situation...So sorry to hear about this. As others have stated, it may be a good idea to invest in even the least expensive alarm system. It could be the ounce of prevention that you need. I would also look at the people in your village to see how they react to you...It could be a clue to a future conviction...Maybe a long shot, but you never know. Conversation with the village head is in order for sure...Be well...

    Flyfisher, thanks for your concern. We have since moved into our new home where the two Golden Retrievers are. As I mentioned at the beginning of this thread, the neighbor across the street also had a dog poisoned on the same night. This makes me believe it may have been kids. Where we were staying at the time, there were numerous dogs and several would try and nip and chase passers by on their motorbikes. This may have been done by one of those individuals. The sad thing is that our dogs were always locked inside our gate and never chased or nipped at people on motorbikes.

    We now keep our Golden Retrievers chained up out back of the new house at night well away from the road. They will bark if someone comes on our land and they can see them. I have thought about getting a CCTV system for security reasons since this seems to be the best evidence to take to the police if something happens.

    Poisoning dogs will continue in Thailand and there is nothing I can do to stop it. If I were ever to see someone attempting to hurt one of our dogs, I hate to say what might happen.
