Mommy. I call her Mommy.

First time i saw her... Victor was giving her a bath.
She was all stinky but smiling.
Such a sweet Mommy she is.

Heavily pregnant and lifted off the street by our one man rescue.

Our rescue consist of only one man and a red van.
He's a retired man with some time on his hands.
A wonderful person who devotes most of his time saving and feeding strays in my hometown.
He is not even a Malaysian.
He doesn't want to be recognised for his work.
He works quietly in the background.
Only the animals know of his work.
Only the animals know of his kindness.

A few days later, we were greeted with this one morning.

Mommy: I got some gifts for you all

Mommy is not a big dog. She's just a regular size dog. But look at how many she hid in her small body.

Mommy: I think i am hungry. Do you have some food for me.

And there were six. All six beautiful fat lil babies survived. Three boys and three girls. We named them the Oodles of Fun Family.

They sure were a fun lil pack. They grew very fast. In a short two months, they were ready to find homes.

The busybodies. Their bodies are always wriggling and dancing and forever moving. 
Their bodies are always so busy.

Mommy and Jake

Word went out thru the grapevine. An adoption drive and soon.. one by one... they left. Each puppy were spayed before they were released to their forever families.

What about the mommy? Everybody loves a cute lil puppy but what about a grown up stray?

She has lived all her life on the streets. Running and looking for scraps of food. Sometimes some people can be mean to strays. The splash hot water to shoo them away. They stuff themselves silly with so much food on their table while a hungry stray dog stand meters away. A morsel of food for me please sir?

She remained a very trusting dog even thru the years of living on the streets. She burrowed deeper into my heart each time i see her. I kept telling myself if nobody adopted her, i'll take her home.

Mommy is to be released and managed as a TNRM dog if she is not adopted out within a timeframe. We needed to use her living space for another rescued mommy with another 6 puppies. Its a never ending cycle if people still do not believe in spaying/neutering their pets.

Mommy was adopted out yesterday. She is now living with a boxer furry buddy. If they can tolerate each other, the family will keep her. She is on a trial basis with this family. I know she's gonna do great. She is gonna burrow into their hearts like she did with mine and with some other volunteers that fed and loved her these few months.

Happy Trails Mommy. You are indeed one fine lucky girl. Thank you for your lessons on love, trust and innocence.

Noah's Ark do not have a dog shelter. They manage the cattery for ISPCA Ipoh. They do a lot of TNRM (Trap-Neuter-Return-Manage) for the strays in Ipoh.

Think... before you buy another puppy in the window. Adoption Saves Lives. Each Adoption Saves Two.

What a lovely post. You did this so very well. I'd have taken the momma dog because she needed a home the most.

We always take the rescue dogs. They need us far more than the others.

Have a terrific day. ☺

I thought for sure you were going to say that you adopted one of the puppies.

That's wonderful that they were all able to be adopted out. I hope the same will be true for the new mama and puppies.

We're so happy she found a home. Hope the boxer likes her.

Even in Oz, many people do not neuter their dogs...though it's widely advertised. So many cute puppies that end up in shelters and euthanised because people just don't care.

XXXOOO Daisy, bella & Roxy

What a wonderful man.
