    Do they play "Gung-Gai" at funerals down Korat way ?

    Only allowed at funerals and Songkran, if I remember correctly.

    (I always lost )

    ^ They may well do Helge, but I have no idea what it is and I never join the wife in these 'social' events anyway.

    I'm used to funerals being an hour or two, and then back to work.

    Imagine asking for four days off work for a funeral in the West...

    Hang on, I won't go there... where's my blood pressure pills...?

    Couldn't

    Something tells me that I have forgotten the correct name.

    Could you ask one of the 3 persons in your household, with some knowledge about Thailand, for the name ?

    ^^ I've still had no intelligible answer, Helge...


    And bloody hell it's hot.

    We have highs of around 40 degrees all week, with 25% humidity and it's wiped me out.

    No sea breeze, no nothing. Just a wall of heat.

    This is Maya's favourite daytime position, clever dog.



    Lola is always quick to catch on, although the relief isn't that great with the pool water temperature at 33 degrees.



    The pond temperature is the same but I guess the evaporation after a dip is cooling.



    Poor old Anna, wearing a cone in this heat. The stitches are due out on Saturday and I'm thinking of letting the vet do it, rather than cutting them myself, partly because she still has a drainage gauze in one wound and I'm curious to see what the vet does with that.

    Unless of course I get any particular requests for the usual close-up, instructional, stitch-removal pictures and then I will do it at home.

    Even though it's in the shade, the swimming pool water around them isn't actually warmer, by any chance...


    Stumps will hyperventilate if he un-flounces and sees that.

    No need for guessing.

    Try to wrap your Lao Khao bottle in a soaked towel or newspaper and place it in the sun.

    Should give you a nice cold Snaps

    Or not

    ^ I'll wrap it in a soaked dishcloth, then the wife won't find it either!

    ^^ Other than safety lessons, I don't encourage the dogs to go in the pool. Maya and Lola are the only two who enter voluntarily and it seems a bit mean to deny them that pleasure in this awful heat.

    The air temperature is around 40 degrees late afternoon, sun or shade. The pool temperature is around 33 degrees, so it will offer some immediate relief but the evaporation afterwards is good... I would imagine.

    Imagine having all that fur in this heat.

    I couldn't/wouldn't bear it, but look at the locals in their Balaclavas and Wellies out in the fields.

    They are tuff, those little devils

    ^ Yes thanks BC, the dogs are doing fine. They sit under a fan in the workshop all day with occasional trips down to the pond for a dip. They have quite an idyllic life to be honest, if that's actually a possibility in Korat.

    During last night Yogi killed a cat in the garden. I was awoken by a God-awful noise but by the time I arrived on the seen it was too late to help. I wish Yogi wouldn't do this but we do have a completely enclosed garden and you have to question why a cat would come into a garden with seven dogs marauding about.

    This morning Yogi looked a bit the worse for wear with a scratched up face and ears. He was lucky he didn't lose an eye.



    And guess who we saw on the dog walk today!



    Moodeng is looking absolutely gorgeous and she was squirming with pleasure at seeing us.



    Tommy was particularly smitten.



    He pushed his nose right up to PJG's back gate and had a good sniff.

    And was rewarded with a little nose rub.



    Even Coco joined in as well.

    He's like the Dustin Poirier of the dog world.

    If there's one fighter you want next to you in the foxhole when the bullets start flying, it's DP.

    Yogi is saying, sure I'm scratched up, but that fooking cat is dead.

    ^ I gave it a good rattle today but it was firmly closed.

    Tommy, Coco and Moodeng were getting on so well that I hoped to see some play in PJG's back garden, but it wasn't to be.

    ^ She scrambles around like any other youthful, happy dog. I can see the awkwardness in her rear leg, but maybe because I'm looking for it? There is obviously an injury there, but I reckon not one that will hamper a dog's life... with a home.

    ^^ My money would be on Yogi if all things were equal, but they ain't.

    Probably Tem (Tommy's brother, Lola's dad). They're segregated right now, but that segregation is enforced by Thais and we all know that they will fuck up somewhere along the line.This is why I want to get Moodeng speyed... we've gone too far now not to.

    PJG has a complicated life and a few weeks ago she asked if I could take on Moodeng, but I said no. Much as I would love to, one more member to the pack introduces a multiple of new relationship dynamics but also, at some point I want to extricate meself from this shit... and taking on new puppies ain't the way to do it.

    Even me daughter told me, 'no dad!'

    She's probably wiser than me.

    That aspect must be quite fascinating. It was interesting to see the different personalities of two hamsters we had together. May they RIP.

    You could pen an academic research paper on pack dynamics if you weren't so busy with your 4 weeks per annum work schedule.


    Or get the kid to be youtoober with a 10 minute daily channel based solely on the lives of the 7 dogs and how they interact.

    ^ 5 weeks already this annum.

    Another 6 weeks soon to come.

    Plus, I've spent the last 2 weeks with the wife... that's double time.

    A busy year already!
