You may recall the other day when we were informed that a dog at the Tiger Cave Temple was wandering around with a massive head wound on his body. We do not know how this happened but it could have been a fight or it could have been contact with a car, which is very common in this area. Normally the dogs at the Tiger Cave Temple don't wander off premises very often because it is a massive complex and there is plenty of food and shelter for them there. For whatever reason though, Jing Jok wandered off and came back hurt.
The road to recovery took a while but we are delighted that all went well and now he is aback in his home area.
Like many of the other dogs at the Tiger Cave Temple complex, Jing Jok doesn't mind being handled and is accustomed to interaction with humans. Although I do have to admit that he probably likes me a bit more than most people because whenever he sees me I tend to have a snack for him.
you can see on his head there where the massive cut was and it healed up wonderfully. He has been away for a few weeks so we slowly reintroduced him to the pack that were presumably his buddies before he went away on medical leave.
It only took a few moments for everyone to become reunited and things went well. There was plenty of tail wagging and happiness all around. Now we just hope that Jing Jok can manage to stay out of trouble because this was a rather frightening injury and one that almost certainly would have resulted in his death had the monks not informed us of the injury.
