A blog about Thailand and all things Thai; culture, foods, scenic beauty, people, places and the strange little quirks that make Thailand the most fascinating country on earth.
Yes, they're all cute and cuddly until they smell me (my fear) approaching ;)A friend of mine gave me a 'group of dogs' as a landmark, as directions to her house. Luckily I was travelling in another friend's car, because as we turned the corner there were no less than 20 (related looking) dogs lying in pack. I don't think one would stand a chance on foot.
Yes, it's strange how they can do that, isn't it? Although as time has passed, I've come to realise that these "relaxed" dogs are probably just dehydrated and malnourished and unlikely to want to do anything that requires effort.
Hi Snap, I think I mentioned in another comment to you, carry a squeezy plastic bottle of lemon juice. A shot in the eyes will have the bravest of dogs turn tail and run. Alternatively buy one of those Nunchaku sticks from the CM night bazaar. Show yourself as the aggressor and the average soi/temple dog is likely to back off.Peter
Yes, nunchakus or shurikens...or perhaps one of those water pistols left over from Songkraan, loaded with lemon juice, vinegar or chilli sauce ;) I'll be prepared next time we come back to Thailand.
Hope you get back soon. I think you left days before I returned last October 24! Your suggestion of chili sauce may well be better than lemon juice!
Thank you for sharing.
You are welcome, thanks for dropping by, and apologies for the late reply!
The poor animals. They appear to have run away from home. Lol.
Who knows what their story is....hopefully they do not have too bad a life there in Lumpini Park. They have shade from the heat, green grass to lie on (though why those fellas above are lying on concrete is beyond me ;-), and hopefully they have food to eat. If I was homeless in Bangkok I would probably make Lumpini Park my home ;-)
They look very relaxed indeed :) Thanks for sharing and dropping by my blog.
Hi Deli, it was a real pleasure to read your post about Pagadian City, a city which has left an imprint on my heart. So, likewise, thanks for that and I am equally pleased you visited here.Peter
