    The gf works at a local government office. There are always a few dogs in residence. Currently there are 4 adult dogs with a fifth older dog who comes and goes, plus a new litter of puppies hiding somewhere nearby. My responsibility is to buy sacks of rice and various bits of protein that are sold in the market cheaply and really don't look fit for human consumption. The gf does the rest. There is a handyman caretaker who lives on site and he has been instructed to feed them on weekends and over the next four days when the staff don't come to work.
    The dogs are mostly well-behaved. There are some members of the public who visit to whom the dogs seem to take an instant dislike, then those people complain and some time later the dogs will be poisoned. Everyone denies knowing who is responsible. This holiday weekend is a high risk time, let's hope they make it through to next year.

    Wife goes to Macro and buy scrap meats and chicken carcases that have a bit of bone on them.
    was always told that we should nit give chicken bones to dogs, and I have told so to the wife , who looks at me like I am crazy. Which of course I am,otherwise I would not live in Thailand.
    Anyway everyone seems to feed chicken and chickenbones to the dogs and they all seem to be doing fine.
    Too fine if you ask me.
    It is a problem . Of course you can't let the starve, but at the same time, well fed healthy dogs have more babies, which creates IMO a viciouse ,
    But what can you do when someone dumps a sweet , cute puppy in your Soi?
    We just got our fifth dog,all rescue dogs, and by coincidence they are all female. So you can imagine.
    The new one I call Kee Noi, wife thinks it's funny, but not appropriate, with all the kids that play in our soi.
    So they call it Nong Noi. Nog being the wife's sister.

    ^^Ever think about putting collars on them and have them either spayed or neutered?

    It all begins to get a bit awkward, what with these being public offices open to the great unwashed. There are people 'in charge' who aren't necessarily dog lovers. We try to rehouse a puppy or two when we can. To some extent I share the gf's Thai view, to help them live day to day and otherwise let nature take its course. I doubt that collars and vets would stop the poisoning cycle, sadly.
    As others have already said, what is really needed is some kind of organised program to address the dog issue. I'm not holding my breath.

    all our dogs except the puppy who is too young are neutered ,and one that is a barker wears a bark collar, 'cause I like mt afternoon nap.
    Other than that they are always in our yard. I open the sliding gate and they all run out like crazy , but they never leave our Soi, and always come back after a few minute.
    They are not stupid, they know which side your bread is buttered on LOL

    Congrats. We have our 4th coming in 4 weeks.

    On food I have never fed any dog here or in the US Chicken Bones. There are a bunch of Reads about it on the internet.

    We feed our dogs kibble. Early on we went the "Thai" diet which is rice and whatever. Problem I found is that their crap was a sloppy mess to pick up. I told wife. No more. I buy big bags of kibble off Lazada and they eat up and moreover their dumps are easy pick ups with shovel.

    They do get occasional Prime Rib bones or big pork bones that I buy at Makro and wife cooks and I cut in pieces with my Sawzall. My wife also has this place where she buys these big ass pig ears that we give them and they gnaw on them for hours.

    It's turning into a dog day.
    At home this afternoon and the two dogs spring into action. All hell breaks loose. My first thought is: snake. They do a madly barking fast lap of the house and keep going for a second round, so I set off in the opposite direction to meet a cat at full speed, round the last corner then up a tree. We have never had a cat in the garden before, the dogs thought it was fantastic, even though they are not much bigger than the cat. We had to call the neighbour to get her cat out of the tree.
    Isan drama at its highest. I'll be dining out on this for months to come.

    Is the cat still there?
    Our cat is a bit of a vagabont , but always comes back and loves to sleep with us,only lately she started waking up 3am meowing and wanting to play
    after a couple of time of doing that ,I somewhat tersely took her and put her out on the balcony with her pillow, and a bit of water and food.
    I think she got pissed off , and I have not seen her for over a week.
    She ignores us to the name Ameao. If you call her that ,and she ignores you , it might be her.

    As I have said on here I believe this to be an urban myth. I have fed all our dogs chopped up and cooked chicken carcasses for the past 6+ years and never had an issue.
    I cut the carcasses/bones into small pieces never bigger than 2cm.
    I am not saying that there may be an occasional problem but I don't believe it is specifically attributed to chicken bones.

    IMHO the chicken bone that may cause the biggest risk is the long thin needle like bone that they have in their leg.
    Dogs that guts their food and don't chew could also be a higher risk.

    But I expect Stumpy to come back with his disclaimer thoughts just like he does re how to cook a steak.
    A saying I particularly like is:

    "A person's perspective IS their reality".

    Dont know if it is or isn't , but same here. Wife has being buying chicken carcases (chicken there most of the meat has being removed, but some remains) boiling it and mixed with rice, she often feeds to the dogs in addition to dry dogfood.
    We never had a problem and it looks like the little bustards will outlive me.

    Bloody hell Shutree, you could have got yourself on the national morning news with that drama if you'd had your wits about you... if you want some degree of fame of course.

    The wife's news on Amarin 34 today seemed to be dominated by a woman who had moved into a new apartment with water marks on the ceilings and blocked sinks. Riveting stuff it was...

    As for chicken bones, I have always been of the understanding that dogs should never be given cooked chicken bones as they go so brittle, but that raw chicken bones (carcasses) should be no problem. A vet I once had in the UK told me that the majority of his dog work was due to bones piecing the stomach wall.

    Our dogs get the very occasional big bone... maybe a cow leg bone from which they try and get the marrow out of. I think they cost 5 or 10 Baht each at the market. To be honest this is too much trouble though as bones cause fights so I find it easier to give them each one of MalmoMike's chewy bone treats once a day.

    ^ Bless you mate. Happy New Year.

    The good thing from our household is we do not eat enough chicken to worry about it. Wife tosses the thigh bones in trash and done. As for Steaks. Like in any restaurant, the customer chooses their cooking preference. Some prefer it cooked like baseball glove tough that requires it being cut with a serrated knife and then chewed on it for a few minutes. Others prefer it to be incredibly tender and can be easily cut with basically a butter knife.

    I will stay away from rice and chicken bones for our mutts. Stick with Kibble and the on and off pork or beef bone to keep them busy.

    I will say the big pork ears really do the trick for teeth cleaning and keeping them busy.

    Nakhon Si Thammarat man imprisoned for slaughter, consumption of puppies
    6 January 2023

    A Nakhon Si Thammarat man has been prosecuted under Thailandís animal welfare law for the slaughter of puppies for consumption. The man was sentenced to three months in prison following a joint investigation by animal welfare organisation Soi Dog Foundation and Chaloem Phrakiat Police.

    The killing of dogs and cats and the consumption of their meat is illegal in Thailand under the Cruelty Prevention and Welfare of Animal Act, B.E. 2557 (2014) Ė an Act which Soi Dog worked closely with the government to introduce. This successful sentencing under the Act marks a positive step forward for animal welfare in Thailand and demonstrates the foundationís unwavering commitment to fighting animal cruelty in all its forms.

    Concern was first raised in this case by Soi Dog mobile clinic staff stationed in the province who encountered a puppy with a deep laceration to its neck. Local residents led staff to the man, stating that they believed him to be routinely butchering and eating puppies but had been fearful of taking action as he was known to be violent and often under the influence of drugs.

    The wounded puppy and its five littermates were transported to the Soi Dog shelter in Phuket for safety and treatment.


    One of the survivors

    One of my neighbour's dogs vanished a couple of weeks ago. Then he found out two other dogs along the lane went missing about the same time. No trace of any of them. He assumes they were taken for the pot.

    How about sorting out the street dog problem first?

    I don't know why PCs put letters I don't want to use, on the same keyboard and screw me up. We should all start a petition and send it the PC manufacturers administration compelling them to address this issue. Grrrr
