Ah boy has been calling the street his home for so many years, now in his golden years, he finally has a real home. It is indeed a happy ending, but for someone who is used to wandering the street, it could get boring for him. So to make sure he enjoys the best of both world, we pledge to send him to visit his friends whenever possible. The thought of getting him his own driver ‘the trishaw’ does pop up in our minds every once in a while as he loves trishaw ride. Oh well, which dog doesn’t enjoy slowly strolling down the street, looking like a taukeh…
On 25 Feb , we took Ah boy home, boy oh boy…I knew he was popular, but I never know he is that popular… he is like a movie star. As soon as he gets off the car, he walk as fast as he could to his two legged friends who are all so excited to see him. The aunties & uncles nonstop asking me where he went, they were worried, thought he went missing. Some were commenting why is he getting thinner & heartache to see him slim down.. However, Ah boy did a good job in reassuring them he is doing fine, with non stop wags and licks, we are sure they get the idea he is in good hands.
There is 1 aunty who adores Ah Boy very much, she hug him so tight and kept talking to him, calling him Chou Pee. It was such a touching moment , my tears cant stop rolling down my face. A community dog that brings so much joy to the people he come across in his life. If only more strays are as lucky as Ah Boy. Every dog deserve to be treated with kindness, unfortunately in our society, strays are still seen as pest.
Today we found out, Ah Boy has 2 gangs of two legged friends, 1 is the day gang & 1 night gang. His night gang uncle friend even sleep together with him…keeping each other warm…keeping each other safe.
We spend quite a while there, with Ah Boy busy going around visiting his friends, everywhere he go, u can hear people calling out to him.. we even left him there for a few hours before coming back to him.
When it’s time to leave, can see the sadness in both his friends and his eyes. We promise him will bring him back again, back to visit the people who loves him.
Ah Boy/ Chou Pee indeed lead a very meaningful life. Life on the street is hard for any dogs, but he is fortunate to make true friends who care for him along the way. His life would have been perfect if only Shanti, the love of his life is still around.
Shanti the dog who started SOS….For those who doesn’t know their story, please read. It is a touching love story of a doggy couple.
Please support spay/ neuter! Not every stray is as lucky as Ah Boy. And we wish no stray has to suffer the same fate as Shanti.
* If you’d like to send Ah Boy on an hour trishaw ride, please donate $35 and quote ‘Trishaw for Ah Boy’. Oh ya, forgot to mention, he stops to pick up his girlfriend and enjoy the ride together. We hope this old man gets to enjoy some luxury in his old age, especially now that he can hardly walk.
