Broken Bits of Life..

In my household, if something breaks.. be it by a two legged or a four legged.. we go “hmm.. okay..” and move on..

We just clean up the broken bits.. and then wonder if we even needed the stuff in the first place..

Having pets have taught me this.. Let go.. Reduce clutter! Go zen! And quit hogging Earth’s limited resources..

Between Man and Dog..

“If you pick up a starving dog

And make him prosperous,

He will not bite you;

That is the principle difference

Between man and dog.”

– Mark Twain

Thank Your Neighbour Today

Please be grateful and kind to your neighbours who own dogs cos their dogs are very likely and indirectly protecting your house as well..

Potential robbers and burglars are deterred from a house with noisy neighbours, y’know..

Currently, my left neighbour have two dogs whereas my right neighbour care for several more dogs. In addition, the house in front of mine own two really nosy mongrels. So you could say my house is surrounded by dogs and I thank god for every time they bark at a stranger passing by.

So, if you have a neighbour with dogs.. thank them today..

Animal rescuer Yeap dies

PETALING JAYA: One of the country’s pioneer and renowned animal rescuers Sabrina Yeap has passed away at the Sungai Buloh Hospital due to leukaemia.

Yeap, who is the founder of animal sanctuary Furry Friends Farm (FFF), was 49.

According to her friend Wendy Goh, Yeap had been unwell for about a week but did not go to the hospital due to her heavy schedule.

“She went to FFF as usual on Monday and one of the volunteers noticed that she looked very ill and took her to hospital,” said Goh.

Yeap slipped into coma the same night and died without regaining consciousness.

Yeap, who was an animal inspector with the Selangor Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) before setting up FFF, played a pivotal role in rescuing dogs dumped on a mangrove island by Pulau Ketam residents a few years ago.

She had also initiated the Dr Dog animal-assisted therapy programme in Malaysia, which was formulated by internationally-renowned animal activist and founder of Animals Asia Foundation Jill Robinson.

Thanks to Yeap, the dogs trained by FFF under the Dr Dog programme are now actively used as therapy dogs to bring cheer to special children and the elderly.

Orphaned after both her parents died in a car accident when she was only a month old, Yeap grew up in a temple.

Although she had no blood relatives, Yeap is survived by many loyal friends.

Her funeral is being sponsored by NV Multi Asia Sdn Bhd, which owns the Nirvana Memorial Park.

A NV Multi Asia spokesman said the company decided to sponsor Yeap’s funeral due to her contribution towards animal welfare.

“She is a special lady and we want to do our part in giving her a good send-off,” said the spokesman.

Friends can pay their last respects to Yeap at Parlour No. 13 at the Nirvana Memorial Centre in Jalan Sg Besi from 2pm today until Friday morning.

The cremation is scheduled at 10am on Friday at the Nirvana Memorial Park in Shah Alam and her ashes will be interned at the Semenyih Nirvana Memorial Park.

For details, call Goh at 012-238 1970 or Myza Nordin at 016-371 7692.

Malaysians’ Favourite Form of Animal Abuse

For a country that is known for our supposed “gentleness”.. Malaysians sure think nothing of abusing animals..

The animal welfare situation is Malaysia is very very sad..

This is a very common form of how animals are cruelly treated in Malaysia..

Too often, we find the abandoned babies with their eyes yet to open and umbilical cords intact (as in the last picture).. and they are left in various locations.. by some bush or tree, at the mamak stalls, at the pasar (markets) and even at dumpsites..

Oddly, the ones committing such cruel and incomprehensible acts usually feel that it’s wrong to neuter their pets.. BUT it is okay to continually separate the babies from their mum and leave them to starve and die.. a very slow and miserable death..

I just don’t get it..

How is it that some people can be soo cruel and inhumane..?

In An Ideal World

In an ideal world, no animals will suffer in the hands of humans..

In an ideal world, animals and humans will co-exist peacefully..

In an ideal world, animals and humans will live with much respect for the other..

In an ideal world, animals will live without fear of humans..

In an ideal world, humans will cease to wrongfully seize for personal gains..

In an ideal world, the world will be a better place..

Unfortunately, we’re far from being in an ideal world..

And we’re actually getting further and further away..
