It's a dog's world!


We came across dogs everywhere we went in Chiangmai which is situated in Northern Thailand. Here are some of the ones I captured...

I found this furry pooch drying himself up at the starting point of our white water rafting adventure.


After we got off our dingy (at the water rafting park), a litter of puppies came trotting towards us. My aunt held on to two little ones that reminded her of Skinny and Brownie back home.


They were merely weeks old. Oh, the cutest thing in the world!


Another dog near the water rafting park.

I saw these 3 pups in slumberland at the flea market in Chiang Mai town.


And this adorable beauty outside a shop.



The first thing that caught my eye was the brown dog. He looks just like my Cookie and even behaves like him! It's Cookie's long lost relative!

Of course this is Proud Phufah's mascot Nam Yen. He's such a friendly guy, everyone loves him!


This Miniature Pinscher was guarding a tyre shop up in the hills near our resort.



This dog started checking CH out at the Hmong hill tribe village.

Another pup came running towards me at the same village.


Oops, this is not a dog. Well, it seems that he cannot keep his hands off all kinds of animals!


That's Nam Yen again, drinking from the pool. Don't be alarmed. The water is not chlorinated. It uses an Aqua Pure Salt system which is designed to naturally refresh clear water.

Happy New Year, Blur!!

Oh, I just loooove this post! (surprise, surprise) I'm so happy to see that all the doggies look like they had owners, and were cared for. I don't know if I could have restrained myself from pupnapping the first one in your post. Toooo cute! Though, the little black and white one who ran up to you looked a little bit like he could use a friend...

Yes Holly. I so wanna dognap them too! The Thais are very gentle people and kind to animals. But I heard some of the hilltribe natives eat dogs (especially black dogs) for vitality!

Dogs are so cute and rewarding as pets. Nick, you really must get one. Your kids will love it!

Love your doggie pictures. My wife and I have three little huggers.

I wanted to comment on the last picture, with Nam Yen drinking from the pool. You say it's alright because the pool doesn't use chlorine. It has a salt system. Well, the way salt systems work is to split sodium chloride (salt) into sodium and chloride. In the presence of the proper pH, the chloride becomes active as hypochlorous acid, which is chlorine. It's just like the chlorine you buy at the pool store. It's just like the Clorox we use in our laundry. With a salt system, you're just making it in your back yard. Part 2 is that, while drinking 3500 part per million salt water won't hurt anybody (except people with high blood pressure), it's still salt water. In fact it's over 10 times higher than the EPA established level of taste for salt in fresh drinking water.

Yes, I know. All boring stuff. But I work with those systems and I hear people say "I don't have a chlorine pool. It's a salt pool" all day.

Sorry if I have bored you.

TҺen, a gradual addition of starch can be added in small quantities.
B-12 injеctions - Vitamin B12 is ҡnown as the "energy vitamin" because it giveѕ a real
energy boost. Keep your HCG drops out of the sun and away from
ѕources of heat, and they'll keep for a lot longer.
