    Default I'm Baaaaaaack!

    Vietnam and Cambodia! What an ADVENTURE!! I will write more over the next few days and include some pics.

    Angkor Wat in Cambodia is a MUST SEE. Those poor people, who only 30 years ago were decimated by Pol Pot and his ugly regime and they are now coming to the world stage and showing what beautiful people they are.

    Vietnam is CRAZY - FRENETIC - MADNESS - NOISY and exciting.

    I took hundreds of pics of dogs and plan on creating a coffee table book called the Dogs of Vietnam - and Cambodia. Amazing dogs and their way of life has to be seen to be believed. In Vietnam and Cambodia, dogs are dogs and they are allowed to be dogs like nature intended.

    The dogs hang with the pack...around the edges of the pack and scavenge and feed as they would have hundreds of years ago (if that makes sense).

    Unlike our dogs, they are not treated to luxurious beds, pretty collars, commercial foods and supplements, lounges to sleep on and all the rest of the things we do with our dogs. We have softened our dogs to the point where they dont use their natural instinct and abilities (my personal view after watching and recording the dogs in SE Asia).

    The other thing that I had to contemplate and mull over is that these dogs are fed primarily rice and whatever they scavenge and whatever is thrown to them by their owners and yet they survive really well. While we argue about what raw diet a dog needs to live!! What vitamins, what latest fad, what the latest nurtritional experts say and what wolves supposedly ate.

    I watched these dogs playing, play bowing, protecting territory, and eating the maost interesting things! I watched them chewing on coconut husks, palm leaves, banana skins and many other things. They live as dogs have for thousands of years. Domesticated, but wild at the same time. They live with and play with chooks, buffalo, ducks, children and the traffic! Most were not tethered, they just didn't go off wandering nor did they stray onto the road and when they did, they actually looked to ensure they could cross!

    Hi Anne. Great holiday by the sound of it.

    Can't wait for photos, but like Mal, I'm also dying to hear about how the dogs live in those countries.
