Thank You Note

Thank you to John and Veronica from Melbourne who donated RM500 cash to help the dogs in the shelter infected with distemper virus. Their kindness and love towards the dogs are highly appreciated. Thank you for her lovely and encouraging words for our animal charity works.

Distemper Virus Attack in one of the shelter

In one of the shelter, a few dogs were infected with distemper virus. We are worried that the whole cannal will be infected one by one. 

The following are a list of things needed to help the shelter and its infected dogs:
1) Clorox and Lysol to disinfect the cannal
2) AD meal
3) Iberet iron tablet (from pharmacy)
4) 100 plus
5) Multi-vitamins
6) Chicken/Fish Essence
7) DMG (from vet)

April has experience that distemper virus can be cured provided correct antibiotics are given at the early stage. Dr Joshua is willing to treat as he has done research on distemper virus. 

Dogs infected with this virus need to take lots f nutrition food, vitamins and strong iron tablet daily. 

These are the tips (crunch all the tablets and mix with food, add some honey or sugar or glucose to cover the bitter taste in daily feeding)

1) Feed lots of meat while dogs are still eating. Don't let the dog lose its appetite. If not eating well, force feed with AD meal.
2) Pork and chicken liver are good to produce red blood cell to fight against virus.
3) Provide half boil egg with cheese and I bottle of chicken or fish essence. (if serious, 2 bottles a day)
4) Iberet iron tablet
5) Multivitamins & B complex
6) 100 plus
7) DMG - increase immune system.

Uncle Lee - the oldest person in Muda Lane, Penang Traditional Joss Stick Maker.

One fine afternoon, Uncle Lee approached me to take a photo together for his memories. I could see he was very proud and happy that I have appreciated his gift very much, The gifts were two very beautiful and meaningful Chinese stick couplets attached to both sides of the door on the main facade and a Chinese couplet signboard above the main door. 

Uncle Lee is a great man. He is the oldest man in Muda Lane. He spent all his life making handmade joss stick from sandalwood imported from India and Australia.  A documentary was produced by Astro Channel 551 on August 29th. 2009, featuring Mr Lee and his vanishing craftmanship on making joss sticks. Not many are keen to pick up this traditional craftmanship as their livelihood because the returns are not attractive. For Mr Lee "his work doesn't bring him fame or financial promise. To him, it is a way of living. Mr Lee is highly regarded,  "a heritage and a legacy" explained the director. He does not rely on this trade to earn a living anymore but more to exhibit skills to visitors and to keep the tradition alive. His desire (together with his wife) for the meantime is to continue making joss stocks as long as time permit.

Let Us Help and Watch Over One Another
Recently there has been some disquiet among us over the treatment of dogs and other animals. And about the negative consequences some unattended dogs have had on our neighbours.
Dogs are regarded as our companions. Yet many dog owners do not understand the needs of dogs. And many wonder why certain people are very much attached to dogs or to other animals, like cats, birds and other pets.
This Sunday we will have some people tell us more about dogs and how much dogs have become part of their lives.
All of us are very much connected in one way or other.
Thank you. And do join us.
