My Saturday Journal

Today is Saturday! But most of ARC member were working almost full-day for ARC. Started with dogwalking, which strangely very quiet today with only 5 dogwalkers (and 12 dogs including our own dogs). I had to walk back and forth because one of the dog decided to stop walking and wanted to go back to clinic 😥 Molly is old so maybe she was tired from heat on her troubled skin. I could have stayed at clinic after took her back but Henry was with me and he needed to walk. This is why I had to go extra miles… 

Molly

After the walk, we asked the clinic to take Rex (a dog yes.. not a dinosaur. Altho he acts like one..) out. He (we assumed it’s a male and we forgot to check when we met 😑) was rescued several days ago and my friend almost lost her hand trying to catch him. He was still very scared and tried to bite his lead to run away. We sat quietly with him as part of rehab and training for about 30 mins. It was supposed to be 10-15 minutes but the staff was busy so we had to wait for them. 

Rex

On this picture I could tell that he is better than the first time he came out. At that time he was still looking away. Sign of avoidance. His head was not hidden when I took this photo, which is a good progress.

Thai Pork Satay @Thai Street

I had only 30 mins to take shower and prepare stuffs for bazaar, then I went to D2 again for lunch (my driver would think why don’t I just live in D2?! 😅). We went to thai street (again) and ordered same dishes with exception for pork satay. Thai pork satay is different than the usual pork satay I’ve eaten. They used turmeric to marinate the meat. It was okay for me. My favorite dishes are still chicken green curry and fried flat noodle. 

Champ

As soon as we finished eating, we went to clinic to take out T-shirts to sell at the bazaar. We also checked on Champ’s condition. He had seizure this morning and it was pretty bad. The seizure lasted for more than 1 hour! We are really worry about him. My friend told me there might be a problem with his brain, seeing how he is blind, partially deaf, walking very weird and has a crooked tail. Something might be wrong with his neuro-system. The vet was not there so we couldn’t get any update. We went to Saigon Outcast immediately after loading some T-shirts to my car. 

There was boho market at Saigon Outcast today. ARC got a table to promote our organization and also fundraising at the same time. I brought the stuffs to our table with a help of one of the staff from Saigon Outcast (thank you very much!). My friends have finished setring ul the table when I arrived. All of our merchandises was displayed on table.

I stayed there until 5.30pm and went home straight. My friends were still there when I left. They were staying until it finished, around 8pm. There was not many visitors coming to the bazaar unfortunately. Felt weird though because most of the time their bazaar was always packed. Wonder what went wrong. 

Flower Ring from Kat Jewelry

I bought some jewelry from Kat Jewelry. They are one of my favorite shop on bazaar. They only sell silver accesories and mostly have unique design. This flower ring was 220k vnd. Not too bad. And the other one is dreamcatcher earrings. I bought the big one, it was 350k vnd if I’m not mistaken.

And there it goes our Saturday! We were all very tired but at least we enjoyed it. Thank you for reading my Saturday journal. I’m gonna sleep now to get ready for tomorrow. Another busy day for ARC!
Ciao!
