In Memory Of Small Seng, And Next – We Have To Help Mandy!

 


We always wish that every rescue story will have a happy ending just like in fairy tales – “to live happily every after”. We really wish but sadly, this is far from the truth. Amidst the cases we have recently, Small Seng (as he was named by the factory) was one which we could only helplessly see him fade away, despite medical aid being rendered. Perhaps it was too late.

We first saw Small Seng a year plus ago when prowling the streets of an industrial estate in the west. We took a double look – yes it was indeed a springer spaniel that happily came up to greet us. Was he a lost dog? He seemed familiar with the area though. Upon some enquiring, we realized that Small Seng has been living at the factory with a few other dogs for quite some time. He was also being licensed to the factory.

After some difficulty (and a lot of running around), we managed to spay both female dogs at their factory – a tri-colored mother and her tri-colored daughter. The mother dog was extremely wary having been on the streets for years, while the young daughter was well-loved by the workers and could easily be manhandled by them.

A year plus down the road, we were contacted by the factory again recently. Small Seng had not been eating for days and was most of the time just lying at one spot panting. One of our volunteers immediately went down that night to check on his condition, and he also did not respond much to whatever was being fed to him.


Our pet transport went down the very next day to ferry him to the clinic. After blood tests and various checks, the vet informed us that Small Seng has tick fever but more importantly, his liver was close to failing. Our heart sank but still, we decided to give it a shot at treating him.


Small Seng was warded at the clinic for a week while being put on drip, but he was not responding much and was also not eating. He had to be force-fed every meal but still, his condition did not improve. After a week, Small Seng’s liver failed and he left us.

 

Though Small Seng eventually did not make it, we were glad we at least helped ease his agony towards the end of his journey where he was being cared for and loved. On the same note, we also hope you can kindly help us with his medical bills to ease our load. Stray or not, pedigree or otherwise, we love them all the same. Only with your help can we also help other dogs like him.

A couple of days ago, we were alerted to this compassionate case of a shih tzu being kept in a rental flat which the owner Mdm C has decided to give up under dire circumstances. We saw the appeal on the Facebook page of “A Packet of Rice” (https://www.facebook.com/APacketOfRice/posts/806887699397391:0) and arranged with them to go down for a home visit alongside with a few other potential adopters arranged by “A Packet of Rice”.

We were waiting at the lift landing when we saw Mandy galloping towards us, happily greeting us. Her long but matted fur covered most of her eyes and swept the floor, but she was still very enthusiastic and extremely sweet. Her fur was patchy, likely due to improper diet. She badly needed grooming but did not look way too bad for her age (eight years old).

Mandy was adopted by Mdm C and family five years ago when everything in the family was stable and before her husband fell ill. Thereafter, they had to move into this rental flat. We did not take Mandy away on the spot as the two older children needed some time to part with the dog – Mdm C herself was luckily sensible enough to acknowledge the fact that she no longer has the capacity to care for Mandy now especially with a recent newborn to the family plus her husband being hospitalized.

Mandy needs grooming and a thorough medical check-up, plus probably a bit of fattening up before she will be put up for adoption. We have thankfully found a fosterer for her meanwhile. We do not have much photos of Mandy as yet but we will update as soon as we officially take over her later this week. While we are keeping our fingers crossed that Mdm C does not change her mind in the meantime for any reason, we will like to appeal for your help to cover Mandy’s medical check-up/treatment too. Mandy has a small lump on her belly which we will get it checked on as well.


To help both Small Seng and Mandy, please email us at
