So much of pain and suffering during the final hours of his life
Blackie's eyes were so badly infected that the inflamed cornea were potruding

Rest in peace Blackie
Yesterday evening an independent rescuer called Mano from Old Klang Road called us about a sick dog, which was dumped at Happy Garden. He said the dog was dumped near the market and stall owners had beaten the dog with pieces of wood to shoo it away. “The dog was too sick to even move away from the beating and just stood there and allowed the men to continue beating it,’’ narrated Mano. He managed to save the dog from the men and called us to help him out. One of our volunteers took the dog to Dr Edmund’s clinic in Puchong where he was diagnosed as suffering from acute pneumonia and severe eye infection. He had also tested positive for distemper but being an adult dog, would have overcome his health issues had he been accorded veterinary care earlier. What has happened to this dog, which we shall call Blackie, its reflective of utmost cruelty practiced by some dog owners here. We tried our best but unfortunately Blackie died at the clinic this morning. His pneumonia was so severe that there was blood oozing from his nose. We can only take comfort in knowing that he had not died alone, cold and frightened on the streets. Hopefully, Blackie forgives his cruel owners as well as those who had added on to his suffering during his final hours on earth. Dear Blackie, go in peace for you are now free of all pain and suffering.
