Our statement has been recorded by the Selangor Department of Veterinary Services and we have informed them that MDDB wants to go all the way in ensuring that justice has been done. We also found out from a source that Handsome had a severe case of hookworms at his time of death. There was also carbon deposition in his lungs and we are wondering how it got there. How did he inhale so much of carbon - is it carbon monoxide from a vehicle? Could there be the remotest possibility of Handsome being exposed to carbon monoxide with the intention of killing him when he was really ill? His intestines were also slightly pale with light black patches and we'll be speaking with our vets on what possibly this could be. His liver was also congested and we wonder if this could be due to the carbon inhalation or poisoning or an infiltration of hookworms. Handsome's cause of death was respiratory failure and septicaemia (blood poisoning). So, it looks that Handsome was a badly neglected dog and there may also have been attempts to kill him off when he was lying there dying? Or was he dumped outside after being exposed to carbon monoxide - given then he would be dying soon?
"Animals are now more than ever a test of our character, of mankind's capacity for empathy and for decent, honorable conduct and faithful stewardship. We are called to treat them with kindness, not because they have rights or power or some claim to equality, but in a sense because they don't; because they all stand unequal and powerless before us."- Matthew Scully in Dominion
I am a nice doggie who lives in Klang with my mummy Lily and sister Shalini Kiki-Mae as well as my human companions. I am also the official representative for the Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better project which is a canine welfare initiative spearheaded by non-profit outfit Community Developement and Integration Initiative (CDII). I enjoy my job but wish I could participate in protests and rescue missions as well. However, my human tells me that I best stay back and manage this blog. Sigh!
Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals, especially for animals who are suffering; for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that must be put to death. We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity, and for all those who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words. Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals and so to share the blessings of the merciful. -Albert Schweitzer
