Clinics, Funeral Parade, Celebrity kids and Aspara Dancers!

Wednesday, November 11, 2015
Just another typical day at the World Vets Clinic in Cambodia: Lots of people and pets, heat and humidity, a funeral parade and a visit from Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitts’ kids…what?!?!?
I will let the pictures tell most of the story!

Our clinic home for 3 days.

The grounds of complex where we are working

While Sandy and I were getting banners put up, this lovely lady met us with her cats to take to the clinic.  She came later in the day with three more.  She really loves her kitties.

These gentlemen live in the pagoda where we are working.  This is one of the few times we saw interaction with the pagoda dogs.

The coffee comes in a plastic bag, in a paper bag, in another plastic bag...

Have to stab the inner bag open with the straw... Joe was having a difficult time...


This dogs name... you guessed it:  Cujo!!

Michelle in prep/induction.  We saw lots of male dogs and cats!

World Vets hired Jorge to take photos.  He is originally from Puerto Rico, but has been living in Cambodia for a few years.

Nutmeg, keeper of the socks!

Folks are gathering for the funeral.  In Asia, funeral attire is white.

The funeral parade

Yes, the funeral is taking place right next to us!

Dr. Helen enjoying a local treat!

I decided to try one as well.

The piece of tape on the dog's head says "caution" or "biter".  This is Cujo from an earlier picture.  She loves her doggy!

Jorge works with a local etymologist and is very interested in local bugs.

Hey Vik!  Here is your Cambodian Rhino!!

Dr Trish.  She has a local veterinary clinic.

Dr Trish and Katie.  Katie is a veterinary nurse and has a small vet clinic where she does out patient care.

Aspara Dancers

After the show, guests are invited up to have their photos taken with the dancers.

I did not need to be asked twice!

After the show, we stopped in Pub Street and had an hour body massage ($11 !!!!!).  What a wonderful way to end and amazing day!
Until tomorrow!!
