This week the lovely story of a dog who was rescued and is now living a safe and happy life with his new owner. As well as getting to know Saangchai a little better, we will also find out more about Soi Dogs and Blondieaka who now lives in Thailand.
Meet Sansa and her son Saangchai.
Saangchai is a Street Dog or Soi Dog as they are called here. Soi Dogs where we got him from is a wonderful organisation who do so much to help the dogs….and to stop the trade in Dog Meat which is quite active in Asia and so cruel.
Saangchai took a little while to settle as he had only lived on the streets and not in a house and had to rummage down bins for food. He is now very fussy but we spoil him. We were also contacted by the lady who has his mum..again Soi Dogs arranged to ship her to the Uk and she now has her forever home. We would not be without him and he is a gentle dog and very protective of us…he wouldn’t even let my friends in my house to start with..lol..it was almost as if he was saying I have my forever home and mum and you are not coming in…he now knows he is staying and everyone loves him…..
Learn more about Saangchai ( which means Happy Heart) and it would be great if Soi Dogs got some recognition… it all helps to spread the word of this wonderful caring organisation.

I live in Thailand, my home nestled among the Rubber trees and pineapple plantations is a haven of peace and quiet. A retired Civil Servant I am now following my dream of writing, blogging, trying new recipes which I glean from friends who are living here or passing through from all corners of the world, lovely authentic recipes and trying ones that in the past I haven’t had the time to do.
I am working on my first novel and a second Anthology of short stories penned by myself and other members of Phuket Writers which will be coming out in the next few months, all exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off ,so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then welcome! I hope you enjoy and it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried , you know you want to.
My thanks to Blondieaka for sharing Saangchai’s story and Soi Dogs and you will enjoy her blog. You will find some great posts that share the culture and food of Thailand such as this post on Asalha Buddha Day, traditionally one of the most important days of the year when young boys enter the monkhood. https://blondieaka.wordpress.com/2016/07/19/asalha-buddha-day/
