Since her parents are still in Australia they already communicate with me through e-mail about the arrangement of Bindi’s stay with us.
Bindi and Syrel the ultimate fave in the house

At the very beginning of course it’s very difficult to her parents specially for her
Mum who cried the 1st and 3rd time they drop and leave Bindi with us.
I think it’s very difficult to be away for someone who is part of the family and treated like a daughter with her parents.
Bindi is very nice character not only because she is high breed dog but really the very first Boxer we ever house sit. Shes very gentle and yet very playful and active dog.
She is very friendly and social with other dogs.

It’s always takes time to warm up to each of us as well as her to us.
She keeps coming back to the gate looking forward that her parents comes and pick her up.
It’s really how you parents established such connection and trust that you’re beloved pets trust you and they do not think that they just get dump somewhere and the feeling of being abandon should be avoided as this cause stress and depression to the pets.
I like how Bindi’s parents slowly teach her that it’s all temporary that she stays with us until their house are ready.
The idea actually of visiting her 1or 2x a week in the house works great to both party to Bindi so she does not feel depress and help her being acclimatize to the weather.
Also it works well to Bindi; s parents specially her Mum who cries occasionally when they left Bindi with us. I think her mum is more and sad than Bindi is away. I can understand it’s her baby.Guest what??? The son said Mum is really something when I went overseas for study. She did not even shed any tears for me. But for Bindi she cried a lot!! Lol!
Its always my duty to reassured dog owner / parents that were their pets are board with me. I guarantee that I will look after their pets like my own family.
After few weeks, Its Bindi’s time to visit to the vet for her shot for heart worms.
The morning after Bindi have all these swollen points pop up from her skin like small rounded thing, it’s a kind of swollen. We all wake up and Bindi have this skin popping. It’s like tiny bubbles float to her skin.
The small lump pop in her skin is what the vet called hives
Bindi with her allergy reaction
My gosh I was super worried to death what happened what did we do wrong?? Where did she get this allergy?
Same morning before I bring her to the vet I gather all my staff and ask them what did something different that you do , food , or maybe cleaning liquids , are the bed sheets or blanket was changed and cleaned well? Were ? it comes from?
What I always learn is if something happened to each pet specially my own pet. Is dropping everything you do that time and rush up to the vet. That’s what Iv ed learn from all my pets and the vets’ advice. I never wait and take chances.
I run Bindi with me at the vet before they open the clinic.
Since I am very worried I called his father and told me to meet me at the vet office. I know it was allergy but which kind, from where is she allergy from.
The vets give her steroid and other antibiotics the vet said it will out within few hours. The young vet said she will keep Bindi at her clinic for observation I was hesitant since its best that she is at home with that problem. In the house she has space wise and I can see her in every minute. I explained to her father don’t agree that they keep her there.
So he politely explain to the vet that Bindi occasionally have this allergy.
Few tips to those families who are relocating pets with them specially dogs.
Sometime with the weather and the new environment there’s always a reaction to their skin. The new shot as well creates new reaction to their system.
Since I am travelling that time I ask her father is possible that they can keep Bindi if she still has that allergy reaction from the shot.
As I am not confident that I have a sick pet in my house and I was not there. I feel comfortable that way.
Days passed by and Bindi allergy finally gone. I was reading a lot of allergy issues and we concluded that that was actually from the shot she gets from the vet.
The vet called the allergy hives, which you cant identify which one.
Their so many different types of hives. What Bindi was the reactions from the shot vaccine. After the skin allergy is gone I was so relief.
So far after that Bindi is doing well time flies and it’s nearly 2 months she is adjusted pretty well in the house. She plays a lot with us and always happy to tag around when I am doing my gardening. As always Syrel is the favorite. She always run so fast when she hears Syrel’s motto horning at the gate. They are best friend.

After 4-5 weeks it’s also the time that her mum are more comfortable living her Bindi with is and more happier when she leaves her at the gate with the reassurance that they family will come back as always to get her.
Today is Bindi’s last day with this stay. I am 100 % sure she will be in and out the house for the next few months years. Indeed were happy and proud to have part of Bindi’s life with us. She is indeed a beautiful dog with her beautiful loving parents who truly love her into pieces.
As I am writing this blog Bindi"s mum is coming to fetch her , while I'm busy cooking our lunch , and her mum slowly walk in so happy and pretty looking.
I sure having Bindi with them finally in the new house is something to celebrate to start a new week.
Bindi enjoy your stay in Cambodia the land and Kingdom of wonder !
