Some good points being raised and thanks to everyone for the input. In response to Homer, if I was here permanently I don't think the problems would have arisen but on a 3 month here and 3 month away rotation I feel that the dog offers some security as it lives outside the house and has only shown a...

If it comes to pass it will most likely just be another demonstration of mismanagement rife with corruption providing an opportunity to 'fine' those who can afford it with little application outside of the urban areas and will result in more animals suffering. Forgive my pessimism.
With the collar on it will be much easier to get a firm hold of her. Once she realises there is no easy escape she usually calms down. In the past it was while trying to get a grip that the problems occurred. The muzzle will be ready however should it be required.
Thanks for the advice so far. The wife managed to get a collar on the dog as part of a cautious grooming session (the dog is shedding its winter coat) and I am enlisting one of my nephews who looks after the fifteen dogs my wife supports out in the village. The dog likes him and he has just vaccinat...
Any practical suggestions please. One of our dogs is due for her rabies jab. Taken in when young and semi feral she is now seven and is very difficult to catch without getting bitten (last time it cost me more for my treatment than her jab and tick infestation treatment). She had a collar but while ...

Zoomed in a bit and it started in February and scheduled to take 36 months. It will be interesting to see how close it will be to the Hua Hin golf clubhouse.

Is that not the market behind the police station? Nothing implied or intended by this comment.
I have always tagged it as a sewage smell. It has become a habit when using the back entrance (most of the time) to close the car windows between booths and the air con on recirc. Have not noticed it recently but with the wifes ultra sensitive nose I am not going to open the window and suffer her co...

My learning to read Thai coincided with my kids also learning and I found them both patient and entertained as I read their books about a farmer and his farm to them. This was backed up by what I still feel is one of the best teach yourself (but practice with family and friends) book, The Fundamenta...

As usual not a case of enforcement but time to fill the coffers.
I have always found 102 a good safe route away from traffic for cyclists wanting to get the other side of the hill without having the initial challenge or either 88, Pala U or the other road past Da Vinci school. Also a chance to get the 4x4 dirty although it gets a bit narrow before you reach the n...
There is also, in the 407's case, a rather nasty chemical that is a fuel borne catalyst designed to aid regeneration of particulate filters fitted to diesel vehicles It was possible to remove the particulate filter and just put a through pipe but apart from modifying the exhaust this would involve m...
I had a Peugeot 407 Coupe with the twin turbo diesel engine, same as in some Range Rovers, Jags etc fitted with a particulate filter and to be honest it was an expensive waste although better for the environment. It needed regular runs at a consistent high speed for about 15 minutes to regenerate or...
