Thai Dog Lover Ties The Knot ::

Reported by Trackitdown TID on March 28, 2006

Thai TV channel Nation reported this week that a local man married his female dog this week, after reportedly feeling guilty about the ‘special’ relationship he’d previously been conducting with the animal.


39 year old Poo-pay said ‘I do’ to two year old cross breed poodle Olay, at a formal wedding ceremony in Chang Mai, though was ridiculed by local psychiatrists who claimed he was suffering from mental health issues.


The story emerged just over two years after Bangkok dog lover Toryip Rawang was arrested on bestiality charges after cops caught him attempting to have sex with an unnamed stray brown mongrel he met in the Thai capital.


The 33 year old Thai subsequently confessed to raping three other dogs on previous occasions, though explained his last assault on being drunk and to broke to hire a hooker, as well as being attracted by the dog ‘wagging its tale and acting sexy” (Thai Rath/ Reuters).  In the event, Mr Rawang was unceremoniously rejected by the bitch, who savaged his face, arms and chest before he escaped.


Lavender Pill Mob producer Gary Asquith also came a cropper with a Thai dog, when his animal magnetism attracted a feral beast as he drove home a motorcycle down a dirt track road in Phuket 3 years ago.


“This dog suddenly attacked me as I drove past fairly slowly, I managed to shake him off with my left leg and initially expected that to be the end of it, then suddenly he’s come back at me making me think ‘rabies’,” Gary told Skrufff at the time.


“He got onto my trouser leg and was hanging there, I was shaking him off when I just ran out of road and fell off the bike into a ditch.”


The one time Renegade Soundwave star broke his collarbone in three places in the fall, though mercifully was left alone by the dog as he lay on the ground in agony.


“It was a mongrel, it wasn’t a massive dog but it had a set of teeth,” he recalled, “There are stray dogs everywhere in Thailand and they come out on the streets in the evening from the Buddhist temples.” (‘Dog catchers from Buenos Aires to Bangalore employ gas, poison and other means to winnow the legions of strays that inhabit most big cities in the developing world. But not in Bangkok. Buddhism calls for compassion and forbids killing any animal unnecessarily. Buddhists also believe in reincarnation -- and many Thais see dogs as people who may have misbehaved in a past life . . .’)
