    Suzanne, I worked with a Thai nurse who has lived here in the US for many years. She related how, during one of her visits back to Thailand, the folks there were incredulous that she bought dog food for her pet at home in the US, or that there was even a product such as it, made for dogs! Apparently the dogs were on their own, in her family's neck of the woods, to scramble for their own food. What is your experience? How does the "all-Thai" (as opposed to "all-American") family relate to their pet? What do you feed your (precious!) baby? And is your mutual Americanized attachment considered an oddity? Just curious. Darling picture, BTW! Not spoiled, is she???!! -- Diana

    My little "peanut" as well as my 18 month old Yorkie (Austin, 5#) eat about anything that I eat. But they love grilled chicken and the chicken left over when I make chicken soup. They also get tuna fish, grilled fish,etc. There are people that spoil the little ones even more than I do and that would be hard to match. In the supermarkets there are quite a few different food products for dogs and cats. Sabrina and Austin also love "real" Swiss cheese from Switzerland, crustless quiche made with any ingredients, grilled cheese sandwiches. That is why their coats are so beautiful and they are so healthy.

    The strays or street dogs are actually well taken care. The vendors feed them there leftovers, usually rice and chicken or fish pieces. Thai dogs are raised on eating chicken with the bones, etc., and it doesn't seem to bother them, of course, not for my kids. If people can't take care of their pets they are usually taken to one of the temples where the monks care for them.
    Pets over here are actually revered, meaning that if you are good to a pet while you are alive, you will be well taken care in your next life. Quite different from the US. There are no garbage disposals here so there are always leftovers of food all over for street dogs. Nothing gets wasted over here. When I make a huge pot of chicken soup, my housekeeper actually takes all of the left over bones and scrap and gives it to the dogs that live in her neighborhood.

    What a sweetie. Happy birthday!

    My dog eats raw chicken, bones and all occasionally, never cooked where they spinter. Dogs can't get food poisoning (they eat garbage and poop don't ya know.) so it's not a big deal for dogs to eat it. It's good for them.

    Dogs can get food poisoning, be careful! We had dogs and other animals die here from eating raw chicken that had bird flu, even a tiger at the zoo. And get your dog big beef bones, definitely keep away from the chicken bones. Cooked or raw, they both can splinter. Look at how easily you can break the raw ones...............I would hate to see anything happen to your dog.....
