involuntary hygiene

July 18, 2010

A washed and furious fellow,

Having eaten a compensatory pigs snout

Watches and waits that he might exit

And roll in shit and romp in mud,

Cursing paws that cannot open doors.


Nepali dogs

May 26, 2010

I have been meaning to post these for ages. Street dogs in Nepal. Overwhelmingly huge and really sad problem.  Animal Nepal and KAT are doing really good work – if ever you go to Nepal and if you love doggies you should volunteer with them. An eye opener- that is for sure!

Most of these photos I took during a strike when the maoists shut down all of Kathmandu city so there were no cars or bikes on the streets.

Totally chilled out by day, they rule the streets at night- you hear some amazing territory wars going on (and you gotta watch them when you come home drunk at 3am)!

But my favourite story is of Marky Seti- rescued by Animal Nepal volunteers in Kathmandu and taken to their animal sanctuary for treatment for scabies, worms, open sores and a broken leg…

Aicha (another volunteer) fell in love with him:

And took him home to Holland because the Nepalese based vets don’t have the equipment to fix Markty’s leg. Aicha is my hero!

No Nepali dog post would be complete without some pics of my beloved Foxy dog- now all better and looking for a new Nepali home!
