Editor-In-Chief Makes Room for Younger Dog

Dear Friends, Fellow Animal Lovers and Readers of this blog,

I would like to thank you for the wonderful years of support you have given me, by simply reading our blog, and supporting the work we do.

As Editor-In-Chief for this blog, I have had the privilege to be a very great part of Noah’s Ark CARES. Over the years, I have been to many road shows, school talks, doggie tea parties, etc – all with the purpose of educating and raising funds for my fellow animals. I also mentored young dogs and taught them to behave themselves, so that they would not be given up or abandoned. I never hesitated to take time out from my hectic schedule to tend to these events, as I believed that we need to educate the young generation.

I love this kid!

I lived on the streets as a puppy, scavenging garbage bins for scraps. Someone used a stick to hit me and broke my tail bone when I was just a few months old. I ran as fast as my tiny legs could carry me but little did I know I was running on the highway. My mommy was driving on the AYE and saw me running on the road shoulder. She stopped, quickly caught me and put me in her car.

The Doctor said I would no longer be able to wag my tail but my mommy decided to keep me anyway. She could not take me home just yet, so I lived with some friends in a factory for a few years.

Finally one day mommy decided to take me home and I was elated! Five years living in a factory and eating curry and chicken rice was more than I could take!

Being a Big Brother to younger dogs

The things I did for animal welfare!

I have lived with mommy for the past five years and I am now 10. I have worked very hard for my fellow animals and our cause. Mommy says it is now time for me to step down and make room for other young dogs.

I would like to introduce everyone to Benny, your new Editor-In-Chief. Like me, Benny lived in an industrial estate for many years and his favourite past time was chasing motorcycles and bicycles. He loved it so much that he could almost outrun them! Soon people travelling on the road started kicking him and complaining about Benny because they didn’t like his idea of fun. The authorities threatened to take Benny away for good and the security Uncle approached a kind lady who fed Benny regularly, to ask if she could help him.

This kind lady offered to take Benny to Noah’s Ark Sanctuary and his boarding is generously paid by her. Benny enjoys his days lazing under the sun and waiting for weekends, when visitors or his care-giver comes to visit.

I hope that everyone will continue supporting Benny, our blog and the work we do and I thank you for believing in our work.

A Home Visit to Diesel’s Place

Dear readers,

Do you remember Diesel? Our maggot wound dog that was resuced from the industrial estate?


See and

Diesel’s case upset many of my friends greatly when I showed them the photo of his treated but still raw wound, as they wondered how come a bite wound can manifest into something so serious, and they are equally amazed at how Diesel did not die from it. According to the security guard at the construction site, Diesel was the third or fourth victim to be bitten by the same dog, and he was the only that survived. Imagine you could smell his maggot wound when driving past the road he was walking along?!?

Diesel's old battle scars

At the door of Diesel’s home when I pressed the door bell, a roly-poly dog greeted me! I took a second look, and realized, oh my, he was like double his size when I first saw him! He was happily galloping around like a horse, up and down the steps and kept snuggling up for attention.

Lucky Diesel gets a walk thrice or even four times daily. Upon reaching home, he knows that Mr Yuen will go to the study room and switch on the air-conditioning, thus now he dashes into the study room faster than Mr Yuen can walk! At night, he will sleep right outside their bedroom, enjoying the air-conditioning that sips out from the gap under the bedroom door.

Diesel is getting picky with food and refuses to eat unless butter is applied onto it! This explains for his wide and expanding waistline! He also likes to look out of the window by standing on twos, and gaze at the world outside, giving the contented look as if saying “oh, the world is wide and I’ve almost seen it all, but boy am I lucky to have somewhere to rest my tired feet..”

Many might be thinking about the recovery progress of the injury Diesel had. Yes there is quite a visible scar there, and the fur will never grow back to cover the scar, but Diesel has come a long way and the scar is evidence of that. Mr and Mrs Yuen told me that they did have an intention of getting a puppy initially, but their daughter who is overseas now, upon learning about Diesel’s sad story plus seeing his photos, insisted that they adopt him instead. Thank you Miss Yuen, for so kindly giving Diesel a new lease of life. He will no longer have to fight for survival out in the open, for food, for territory.

Last but not least, check out Diesel's story on RazorTV by clicking on this link: Diesel's Story For 1 more RazorTV clip, please take a look at our right column under videos.

We at Noah's Ark are extremely happy for Diesel, as he has finally found his forever home.
