SONG KRAN - THE THAI NEW-YEAR

And that's how it works:
you get armed with water pistols,
if possible filled with ice water
and get everyone else wet...and
of course it comes right back

Instead of water you can also use powder

The dogs surely are glad when it's all over

There is music everywhere
and people dance on the streets

The hole of Thailand is celebrating.
In some parts of the country
people celebrate a whole week long

 

MARCUS IN ACTION....

 

 

Unfortunately we can not avoid sand
from running into our water tanks
whenever there are heavy rainfalls.

The tanks get overfilled with dirt of the worst kind.

REPERATION WORK AT THE SHELTER AND IN CHAWENG

A thunderstorm had torn down
a big tree in the shelter;
it fell on our single boxes and damage was big.

 

 

It was a hell of a job to saw the tree into pieces
and to carry the big branches outside the shelter.

 

 

 

 

 

This time it wasn't the fault of the storm.
We cut a big tree next to the puppy house 
as far as possible.

Markus wants to build a roof between the puppy house and the main house.

We must place a big number
of dogs and puppies there;
having a roof when it is raining  would be perfect!

 

 

STORM DAMAGE IN CHAWENG

 

Also in Chaweng the storm cost some damage
and the 5 meter high Bougainvillea bushes
got crashed.

Now only the bare trunks are left and the shadowy places for the cats are gone

 

We had to refense the whole cat-fence above the wall. The Bougainvillea took everything down with it.

 

Thankfully we have some pretty skilled helpers who easily hang around on top of the wall.

These bare trunks were giant bushes...
once upon a time! Up to 5 metres high.
Of the palm-tree next door you only saw the tip!

After 4 months things look like that.
In 2--3 more months everything will be dense again.
It was quite good to tidy up the place,
as there had always "developed"
loppholes in  the wirefence,
when the branches had grown through

 

All ready for the cats again!

 

REPAIR WORKS AT OUR HOUSE IN CHAWENG

 

Whenever the rain gets under the tails, they have to be retiled.

Otherwise we have rats and mouse and snakes or scalapendros coming up from under the house.

There is painting and welding work
going on everywhere.

Bonzo seems to be too heavy for that bench... I wonder if he's going to break through any minute!

 

 

We constantly have to build new benches for the dogs.

 

 

REPAIR- and RENOVATION WORK AT THE PUPPY HOUSE

Since we had so many tiles left over from the constration of the small-dog area,
we used them to tile part
of the puppy house wall outside.

It will be easier to fight against ticks when the wall is tiled and smooth, the ticks won't be able to nest as easily and we can get them  a lot better

The tooth of time is “gnawing” everywhere

A lot of rooftiles crumble
when only a small branch is falling down on them.

 

 

BONZO WORKING HARD

Check it out, a new kind of dog food
has come out. Liver with jelly..

So well- and what about a delicious smell?! When finally will they invent smelly telly?

OOOOH, my mistress is showing up!
She might bring along a tin with liver in jelly....

 

 

ON THE WAY INTO A BETTER FUTURE

 

Markus is looking forward to the little transport.
A big THANK YOU for him from all the dogs

 

 

Every year we help with
more than 100 dog transports
to everywhere in the world...
