Kindness and Compassion to Dogs is the New SMEXY

I was hoping to post about our vet today, but decided to talk about other amazing people around Asia as well. 


Two days ago, we went to our vet to have Buchi's semi-monthly Ivermectin shot. Just in case anybody was wondering, Ivermectin is a broad spectrum anti-parisitic drug. In Buchi's case, it keeps the itchies at bay because of his immuno-compromised body.

Off to the vet we go! Again!
So while I was talking to Dr. M about Buchi's regimen, she mentions how lucky Buchi is. If he had ended up with other owners, they would have probably left him to deal with the itchies and infection without medical attention. She didn't say much, but she made me feel like a special owner. This was far from what I had felt with Dr. C who made me feel stupid and ignorant. 

We've been going to this same clinic since 2009.
And it's not often you find a vet who understands that some of us are simply doing our best to provide the necessary medical attention with the limited budget we have. She's been generous and patient with us in many ways.

Bottom line? We think our vet, Dr. MSB, is definitely SMEXY!

Nitin Rana

We just found out about Nitin Rana in Facebook today. He has a thing for helping stray dogs and dogs in need in India.

Sure, I personally think he's cute, but the dogs think he's SMEXY.

Nowzad Shelter in Kabul

Nowzad does an amazing task of reuniting dogs and cats in Afghanistan to soldiers who have been destined there. According to NBC News, facilitating the reunion can cost as much as $4,000. They have organized more than 400 dog and cat transports to the United States and the United Kingdom.

In fact, their goodwill hasn't come unnoticed. They have been awarded BVNA Charity of the Year 2014, JustGiving charity of the Year 2013, and Animal Transportation Association Charity of the Year 2013

We would like to thank Melissa for giving us the go signal to use their logo in this post.
The shelter also takes in stray dogs, hoping to establish a healthy and controlled population through vaccination and spaying and neutering. One of their many intentions is to have of these cats and dogs adopted by Afghan families. Let's give them a paws up! 

The dogs and I think that Nowzad is SMEXY!

Interested in helping them earn more funding, check out the 'tail of Nowzad Dogs available in Amazon.

  5. So glad you have found a good vet who appreciates what you do for your dogs and will talk to you about them .
