MoMo 八哥狗係我哋 4 月時喺 「保護動物慈善協會 (LAP)」領養番嚟嘅，唔好見佢個樣傻更更 🐢，其實佢係好堅強咁面對緊人生比佢嘅困難。佢由小到大比一戶人家照顧，好錫佢㗎除咗基本生活所需外又同佢洗牙腳有事又同佢做手術，所以而家成十歲人都滿口牙齒 (好少有的)
We adopted MoMo from 「Lifelong Animal Protection Charity (LAP)」 in April this year. She looks innocent 🐢 but she is in fact unbelievably strong given her life circumstances.
但有一日，喺佢約 7 歲時主人決定咗離開香港 ✈，唔係帶埋佢走，唔係放棄照顧比人收養，而係放佢去寵物店然後唔接番佢！一住就兩年。食得唔好，又成日困籠，佢成身皮膚病甩哂毛變得好瘦 (我明係好難想像佢好瘦)，最後寵物店嘅人喺兩年後佢 9 歲多了養唔掂先交比 LAP。在他們及 foster 悉心照顧下最後就嚟到我們家。佢一開始好唔鍾意上繩，會咬 😡。Foster 懷疑喺寵物店佢係每日比人綁住好唔舒服；又唔鍾意大主動抱佢 (佢埋嚟搵你係可以的)，會掙扎，可能之前一比人捉住會有壞事發生；要長期滴眼水、食敏感糧、食敏感藥，等等。
She was once loved in a caring home where her owners took good care of her for 7 years, and her life was turned upside down when the owners decided to leave HK without her ✈ . They put her at the groomer and never looked back. She stayed there for two full years until the groomer could no longer take care of her. She was having skin issues due to neglect or the wrong food, losing fur, super skinny (yes this is hard to imagine) and was mostly caged😭. The selfless volunteers and fosters from LAP took very good care of her before I met her.At first, she got a handful of weird habits like being snippy when on leash, the foster believed that she was tied up all day so she didn’t like it 😡; refusing us to hug her and always struggle. Maybe something bad did happen when people hug her; She also needs long term eye care, food/skin allergies care.
呢幾個月每日同佢相處，散步上繩滴眼水沖涼訓練指令佢基本生活都好乖好適應，係仍然唔成日接受人抱。所以我哋喺屋企拉筋時會用佢做「瑜伽磚」，乘機抱吓佢。雖然都係同之前養開好鍾意人抱嘅小狗唔同，但佢慢慢都少咗啲掙扎。所以我哋都好珍惜用同佢一齊拉筋嘅方法同佢相處 🐽❤。你哋嘅狗狗可能有唔同嘅故事，但喺瑜伽蓆上，除咗人同自己身體呼吸連結外🧘♀️，同小狗都可互相了解陪養感情，係好 sweet 嘅一件事嚟㗎 ❤😊
After being with her and walking her daily these few months, she got a lot better in a lot of behaviours. She now enjoys being on leash and no kidding she loves getting eye drops! Just she still does not enjoy the hug so much. So we use her as a “yoga block” when we do stretching at home and increase our chances to hug her without her struggle. Not always successful but we are both getting better ❤🐽 You probably have a different story with your dog 🐶 but miracles do happen on yoga mats.🧘♀️ Not only for you to connect with yourself your inner body, but also cultivating an intimate practice/quality time with your dog.
