White Dog Crossing Rainbow Bridge; We Were Too Late.



Picked up Joseph at 4 pm today and we headed to the street to locate him. Since he was not there, we asked one of the neighbors and found out he might be roaming behind the residential area. We drove here and there but with no luck finding him. After a few rounds, from a distance we saw a dog sniffing on something, I couldn't see what it was as my vision was covered by cars around that area. We drove slowly towards the dog and with shock and sad at the same time, we saw the white dog lying there not moving at all. We knew instantly he has gone and the worst part is NOBODY cares! Nobody, I mean he collapsed at the side of the main entrance and I am pretty sure there must be lot of cars go in and out, but nobody even bothered. His body has turn cold and stiff.

We stayed there for a while and Joseph made a call to the council department asking them to come and collect the carcass. The two council workers in yellow t-shirts in the video are not from the animal department though, they are just ordinary worker that sweep the road daily. I deliberately let them carried the carcass so that you can see how our council workers deal with carcass. The man in brown shirt is the one of the council supervisors and his team who deal with animal carcass has gone home after 5 pm, that is why the yellow t-shirt workers had to help out since they were there sweeping the road.

I feel bad and so is Joseph and Khairul not because of the council workers but because of the people who live there do nothing at all to help this suffering animal. I took a lot of photos and videos to show to my vet asking him why this could happened suddenly within a day. He said it might have been hypothermia since he has been exposing to rains yesterday and also this morning. Another reason I took photos is because tomorrow morning, I will pick up Joseph and we will be heading to dog licensing department to trace this owner and file a cruelty report against him. He has to be punished for neglecting and abuse!

We had a long conversation about this my friend. You are in no way to blame for this.

This dog is now where he should be: loved and safe and free of suffering.

You did well.

Pete said...

Yes you did the best you could. He is in a better place now.

Xtreme said...

Kinda weird to say...you probably gave this dog its very last meal...and probably the only one who simply cared at all..

sad.

Pete said...

I was thinking that as well. You showed him a tiny bit of love, care, and some attention. He experienced it. Died knowing what thats like.

It is sad to see that he has passed, but agree that he's in a better place now where he's love and at peace. Not able to view the video though, guess it's too cruel to watch so Metacafe have to remove it. :-(
You have done good, and I really admire you for that, to Joseph & Khairul too.

Thomas,

Your work wont go un noticed, You weren't too late to show the dog some humanity and kindness, and for that you deserve a good round of applause.

Sadly this is another animal that is now on the other side of the bridge, but happily itis no longer suffering a terrible affliction, and is free to run and play with Simba and the Light Yellow Puppy.

Metacafe have seen fit to pull the video for some reason, so I can only guess at the content, but I know it would be upsetting. Hell, the pictures are bad enough on their own :(

R.I.P White Doggy

That's so sad.. That poor doggy looked terrible... And how they handled him like he was just some garbage off the street makes me sad :(
But he is in a better place now.. at least you showed him some love before he died..

"A righteous man regards the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel."

"I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, In as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

You are an angel that God placed on Earth to help the voiceless. I am so lucky and proud to know you Thomas. Please, keep doing what you are doing, you will be rewarder somehow. God bless you my friend!

This world is cruel, harsh and very unforgiving. I think that by the look of his eyes that dog had just given up and was already dying when you fed it. I've seen the same look in the eyes of abused children and the homeless elderly. It breaks my heart. I took care of my wife for six months after she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. The hardest thing to do was for me to tell her it was OK to stop fighting and let go and that I knew she would never really leave me. She died in my arms with a kiss on her lips. What you are doing is nothing less than angelic and there is a great reward for such as you.

@ everyone,

Thank You so much for understanding my situation. However I wish I could do more.

Updates : I did meet up with the lady that I talked to the other day while feeding the dog. It's the neighbor and they are very scare to come forward and be a witness if needed. I have explained to them that this is a serious cruelty case and we shouldn't just let it go unheard. The owner should be brought out to face justice and penalty. I will see how our local SPCA react on this matter and will update all of you again.

DB said...

Thank you for caring!

This realy made me cry, how can people be this cruel. Keep up the good work! We need more caring people like you on this globe.

I see you do much for the animals suffering in your area (very well done) but I have to ask one question...why didn't you take the dog to the Vet straight away? The animal was obviously very sick, hours from death, perhaps and its a big perhaps, placed on a drip and given antibiotics it might have made it.

Ngo Thye Aun said...

@ JON PM,

I got that question ALOT and believe me, I have to live with that for the rest of my life. I was too late that's all I can say and I thought he will survive for the next day. I am sorry.

Its so sad to see this little innocent dog dying because of an irresponsible owner.

The laws towards animals in Malaysia should be amended like the ones in US (the ones we watch on TV) where dog owners are penalized for cruelty towards animals. Some people just forget that dogs are living beings too.
