Judy Visits the Children

Judy and I always love to visit children. This time we were invited to Prem’s K3 class. They were studying Community Helpers and wanted to know about the work we do at Care for Dogs.

All the children were very excited when we arrived and could barely listen to the lesson when Judy rolled over to ask for belly scratches.

Civilisation as we know it

For people who speak English, the following comment on a forum that to many people represents a westerners view point on Thailand. Below are the words spoken by a person who has contributed to the forum for 3 years and has their posts accepted as non offensive as it still remains visible after 24 hours.
