Some of you had asked me: Who took care of Chester while we were away on our recent HK-Macau trip? I’m going to answer you now. This is the intuition that I was talking about yesterday.
My initial plan was to let grandma and maid take care of him but decided not to since we’ll be gone nearly a week.
My second plan was to find a good house boarding for him but unfortunately I couldn’t find any or because circumstances prevented it.
My third plan was to place him in a pet shop boarding. We found one near our place and on that faithful day, guess what we found out? The shop is closed down. In other word – bankrupt!!!
So we ended up dropping Chester at my uncle’s place as we’re already running late.
Since he have 2 dogs, it is quite unpleasant to keep a 3rd dog in the house. So he brought Chester to a vet shop boarding. I never like vet shop boarding because the dog will be caged most of the time but what to do ya.
My heart almost fell to the ground when I saw Chester after so many days. He looked thin. The vet told me he got this smelly stench. The first thing Chester did when I grabbed hold of his leash is he lunges straight to the car… without greeting me at all. It must be a nightmare staying there.
When I got home, I search and harass his body to look for any sign of mistreatment… mygod I can feel his buttock’s bone jutting out. The smelly stench that the vet told me about actually is his poo’s stench. There were a large piece of hardened poo stuck on his behind. Idiot man! The environment inside the boarding house must be really bad. They didn’t clean his poo ka! I also found a big patch of wound at his buttock. 🙁
He’s of course ok now. The power of love. Kekeke
My advice to any dog owners out there, never ever leave your dog in a vet shop boarding. Pet shop boarding isn’t my ideal choice either. But if you have to leave them there, always request a tour of the boarding area. If they don’t allow you in there, it means they’re hiding something. As a customer @ dog owner we have the right to check the boarding place. Would you in your sane mind place your dog in some pet shop where you have no idea how the sleeping condition will be like? There’s no such thing as P&C and don’t take whatever bullshit excuse they give. Just walk out of there. Better be safe than sorry.
