    ^ Just under 15 years ago we took on 3 puppies that grew up under this Morlam show stage... they had been named by the show's members... Dran, Den and Din.

    Den I believe means 'sword' or something similar. He lived with us until a couple of years ago when cancer took him, and now he rests under a mango tree by our pond.

    Din (Soil or Mud?) died nearly 14 and a half years ago, when an arsehole vet gave her too much anaesthetic when being speyed. That still annoys me to this day as she was lovely.

    Dran, which I believe means 'brown', has been with us for nearly 15 years... but her name has morphed to 'Dan' for ease. The Thais can't do an 'R'... it has been easier this way!

    The pack are so sweet! I love seeing happy dogs, and disagree with people wanting to put all the soi dogs down in Thailand.
    Mendip didn't stitch the dog he just removed the stiches, no big deal I have unstitched several. Just snip the string and it pulls out easily. I doubt anybody would try stitching their own dog.

    Dan can mean strong in Thai language, maybe it comes from that?

    ^ That would be very apt if so.

    For some reason I have the original name as 'Dran' in my mind because she was the only brown puppy in a litter of black and white pups.

    But, I've always thought that 'namtan' is brown in Thai, and same for Lao I think. So Dran doesn't make much sense.

    The crowd watch on during the solo synchronised swimming event...




    Hey, hang on... that's not Covid-secure. Another Olympic scandal.

    ^ I don't know what you're insinuating HW!

    But I'm very glad I don't have a Greggs next door to my gym... that would be a complete nightmare.

    And this is exactly why I spend so much time with the local soi dog population.

    I reckon that Yogi may be autistic... he's a bit strange and not the easiest of dogs, as Ootai will confirm.

    But he absolutely adores my daughter... a mutual relationship. She gains as much as he.

    Lovely to see.

    Guess who?



    Yes, this is 'Cooper' who went up to live with Gallowspole in Nong Khai on the banks of the mighty Mekong.

    Living proof that the only difference between the much denigrated, so called 'mangy soi dogs' and a healthy, loyal pet dog and loving member of the family is opportunity.

    Copper had a very tenuous start to life but had some luck...



    And speaking of opportunity... Cooper's mum (one of Anna's nieces) is still active and on our evening feeding rounds. She's too timid to catch and get speyed so will doubtless have another litter this winter... so there will be more gorgeous puppies looking for a home in the future. This mum makes good puppies.

    A special advance offer to TeakDoor members... book one now for free delivery!
