Happy “little” Thong-mang!

For those who are new to this blog, Thong-mang is a rescued (very) undersized puppy, found abandoned at a temple together with her brother. Their rescuer, Dr Veeranoot, thought they were both teacup puppies (imagine how small they were). Thong-mang’s brother passed on and Thong-mang was adopted by one of our readers. The kind reader thought Thong-mang was indeed a teacup and he wanted to give her a good life (knowing it would probably be a difficult one, as are the lives of many teacup animals).

But little Thong-mang turned out to be just a very undersized puppy, suspected to be from a very malnourished mother. She is not a teacup.

After a few weeks at her new home, Thong-mang came down with parvovirus. She was tested positive twice, at two different clinics. The surprising thing is despite her bad start in life (being born of a malnourished mother and being so tiny), Thong-mang was only down for one day. Yes, just one day, from the parvovirus. The next day, she was already up and about and eating. And joyful.

Here’s Thong-mang yesterday, when I visited her. She still has one more week to go from her post-parvo quarantine.

The reason the photos are all blurry is that Thong-mang couldn’t stay still AT ALL. She was so happy, playing and socialising with everyone present.

Dr Veeranoot, these photos are for you!

And it certainly looks like Thong-mang will grow up to be of the size of a local Malaysian dog. Not undersized as was expected initially.

And she is SO happy!

Many thanks to the kind reader who took her in to give her a good and happy life.

So, one may have a bad start in life, but with good nutrition, lots of love and possibly a little bit of luck, life can definitely turn around for the better.

For Thong-mang, I cannot help feeling that her wellbeing could also be due her very happy and carefree personality!
