Visiting the beach dogs at Wat Amparahm in Baan Amphur we discovered a mother dog with four pups obviously dumped there recently. All five dogs seemed in good health and were quite friendly. Since dogs are dumped at the beach regularly we were prepared to include them in our vaccination and sterilization program. A few days later when we were looking after the beach dogs again we surprisingly met a woman there who told us that the dogs were hers and being "kidnapped" by a neighbor who dumped them at the beach. The woman's account seemed to be reliable and so we were happy watching the dogs leaving with their owner.
