Dogs in Brazil Blog is Restarting.

Hi Everyone! It's Joey. After a humiliating incident I am back. It all started when Mom noticed my chest seemed very large. Mom was worried there was something wrong with me but I felt fine. Life is good. The only complaints I had was that I wanted more chicken. I continued my daily begging routine crying as much as I could so that they gave me more chicken. Mom said that the lump in my chest was growing. I began to get worried although I felt normal. Finally mom asked Dad to take me to the vet clinic. I was really worried then. We got into the car and went to see Dr Andre. He examined me as I waited holding my breath for the diagnosis. He looked at Dad and said, "This dog is just fat". I couldn't believe he could be so rude. I felt so humiliated all I could think of was that I wanted some chicken. I have the body of an athlete. 

I know that Dr Andre could have been motivated by the day he doggy sat me in his clinic years ago. Mom and Dad dropped me off in the clinic. He put me in a large cage, so I screamed all day. I screamed so loud that he couldn't even hear his telephone calls. Mom and dad had to go down to Rio and in those days the cell phones didn't work outside of a certain area. Although I don't know why they didn't hear me. Eventually they came back and Dr Andre said "never again will I dog sit that dog". I didn't respond I just wanted out of there and to get home to my chicken. I am sure he remembered this incident and just said I was fat because I spoiled his day. Worst still when we got home there was talk of putting me on a diet. I wasn't sure what that was but Max the obese dog who had to undergo the same thing said it was Hell. Not good news. I was called fat and now they are planning to starve me. Anyway Mom said I should do something to occupy my mind instead of just thinking about chicken. I am doing the blog again so she doesn't reduce my chicken quota.  

I am also applying for a job and have made a CV for myself. I put pictures in to prove how effective I am. Here is my CV.

Name Joey Da Silva 

Age 8 years and nine months old.

Experience. Cleaning and helping with house work.

Carpentry, Writing blogs, Shopping assistant, gardening, and security work. 

 Here I am testing some kibbles for quality. Mom said I was stealing some kibbles!

Here I am cleaning the kitchen surfaces for mom. I got away with that one.

 Here I am dusting the grass.

This is me testing the pink dog houses that dad made. 

Here I am doing some security work guarding the chicken and the human shredding it.

I got paid with chicken as human money doesn't taste so good. I know because I ate a 10 reais note once and it tasted disgusting. 

Here I was as a baby. What a skinny little puppy I was. It was obvious that I would never be fat. 

I also help with shopping when I can by guiding the cart to the chicken counter. As you can see having a dog like me can be very helpful and I also write the blog for mom. If anyone wants to hire me I work for 100 grams of chicken per minute. 

I will be telling you about all the new things here soon. Mom and Dad keep getting peculiar looking dogs one has horns, two are enormous with weird tails, others meow and have engines, and some just say Moo. Loads of new dogs arrived too since my last blog. Little Fat Sol now lives in the house with us too. I never called her Fat she got that name from Mom when she was a lot younger and fat. She is 16 now. I will be back soon.

Hi Everyone! It's me Joey earning my keep. Mom makes me blog for my biscuits. She buys biscuits by boxes of 24 packets at a time. I don't eat them all myself but sure would like to. Mom's been busy but that's normal here. She took Trooper and Sol for eye surgeries. They both had cysts growing on their eyelids. Luckily mom said neither of the removed cysts were malignant. I didn't know what that meant, but if they were lucky then that's okay with me. I would miss Trooper and Sol if anything happened to them. We have been through a lot together. We all have moved houses four times with mom and dad. We have known each other many years and seen so many dogs come and go. Little Fat Sol is old now and Trooper too. They are both older than I am. I am now seven human years old. Mom still calls me 'her baby'. 
Since my last blog some more dogs came here first was a white dog with a small black puppy. She told us it was her puppy. She also told us she was thrown out because she had puppies. Someone took her other puppy in the street whilst she wasn't looking. The little black puppy managed to stay with her mom until my mom and dad found them. The white mother told the little black puppy to look at my mom and implore her to take them both off the streets before someone stole her other pup and left her out on the streets alone. The pup did well and Mom and Dad picked them up and put them in the car to bring them home. Here she is doing her big eyes "Please take me home with you face".  

The mom is now called Sprinkles. Here she is on the way home.

The black puppy is now called Wilma. 

Wilma grows like Bamboo. She is a sweet puppy and does everything her mom tells her to do. Susie and Jasper (two of the 18 puppies born here ) moved to a new kennel. They all had to be separated as the silly puppies were always fighting. I never had puppy siblings so I don't know why the were fighting. Mom said it's normal and even human puppies fight.

Clark and Eve are going on a long trips shortly to the USA. When dogs go there we only ever see them in pictures after they leave. Mom assured me that my girl Gemma won't be going. It would surely break my heart if Gemma went away and never came back. They both had their hair done ready for their trips.


I am lucky my fur is maintenance free. This is very fortunate for me because I hate baths. I struggle all the way through the bath to make them stop. Then after that mom heard about two dogs that were dumped a few days before. They attacked a chicken and one was beaten to death. That frightened me as I love chicken a lot and if I didn't have a home with mom and dad I would want to eat chicken and there are humans that kill dogs for that. The second dog that was with the dog that got killed got stabbed in the stomach. That same day someone turned up at the gate here with her. Part of her stomach was coming out of the wound. She already had something mom said was necrosis and had to go to the vet clinic in a hurry. 

In this picture she is happy to have been cleaned and stitched up. It was taken a few days after the surgery. Her name is Sophie now.

Then after saving Sophie something terrible happened. Mom and Dad feed some street dogs and one was called 'Thor'. He had been living in the street for many years and then the woman that used to feed him left and didn't take him with her, so mom and dad started to feed him. He knew exactly what time his food would arrive and always waited for it. Then he wasn't there for a few days and next time we saw him he was dying in the street. Mom and dad rushed him to the clinic where he died the next day of some type of poison. We all cried and thanked our canine God that we are safe inside here. Mom tries her best but there are too many street dogs out there and 129 of us in here. She cannot support more as she doesn't have the money that we all cost. The house has twenty dogs living in it. The garden has kennels all over. We always thought someone rich would turn up to help mom with the costs. Every week I watch mom fretting about paying bills.

RIP Thor

Hi I have been a bit lazy lately and haven't been blogging. I took over a year off. I am getting old now. I am a Black Mouth Cur mix, but my black mouth is turning white now. My name is Joey and I am the blogger for Dogs in Brazil. I took over from Emmy when she went to the rainbow bridge. Emmy was much more productive than me. I have other priorities in life like Chicken and naps in the closet. I had much more energy when I was a young handsome guy. Don't get me wrong I am still handsome. Well! Mom and Dad are still rescuing dogs. It has been going on for 17 years now. I have seen so many dogs come and go. Many leave the country and I see pictures of them living in luxury some even have heated beds. Others have died of old age, or died due to the terrible state they were in when mom and dad found them sick on the streets. Mom and Dad do everything they can to save each one they find in trouble. There are 128 dogs here now. That makes Mom and Dad very busy people. They struggle to keep up financially and physically and Mom has been ill lately.
So what is new?  There many new dogs. Mom picked up an old guy that was limping badly with real bad teeth. Wonder if they make dentures for dogs because he certainly needs them. Many dogs have traveled abroad and are having fun. First this is Bailey the old dog that needs dentures. Street dogs eat a lot of the human trash to survive and clearly it's not good for our teeth. We chew on bones thrown out without any meat on them and grind our fangs down prematurely. It's a means of survival. I have been here since a puppy and have good teeth. Mom says dental work for dogs is highly expensive. there are many dogs here from the streets needing dental work. Mom would need thousands of dollars to sort out all the dogs with dental problems here. She doesn't even go to the dentist herself.

This is Gaia. She also has mouth problems. She was laying in the road for three days unable to eat because a car hit her and broke her jaw. She also hurt her leg. Mom and Dad picked her up and took her straight to the vet clinic for surgery. She has a mouth full of wire and a retainer of resin to hold it all together. She doesn't say much as she can't bark. She wags her tail a lot and I like her. Not as much as I like Gemma though. She gets special food as she can't chew. Here she is before they wired her up and after. We can't wait for her to be able to talk and tell us her story. Everyone here has a story to tell. We all came from the streets before we met Mom and Dad. .

Gaia may not be able to talk, but she is a happy girl always wiggling her butt and smiling especially when she sees me. She has good taste like Gemma  (My girl). Gemma loves me. We have been together many years now. That's Gemma below.

Mom and dad also picked up a mom and her puppy. They were abandoned in cold, rainy weather. They were hungry. The little puppy's ribs had begun to show. We have all known hunger here. Except for the pups born here when Mom and Dad rescued the three pregnant dogs. Hunger is a horrible feeling. I remember when I was very young wanting my mom's milk or just something to eat. I was lucky someone dumped me outside of Mom and Dad's house and they heard me crying.

This puppy still cries if she doesn't have her mom. They will be safe and fed now. There have been so many new dogs and so much has happened I can't tell you all as I would need to write a book and I am quite a lazy dog so I won't be doing that. I will be blogging again though and will tell the news as it happens. I will post pictures of the new dogs now. If anyone wants to know more about them then please send me a message and also mention how handsome I am. I last blogged in April 2017 and since then there have been many, many new dogs. I think somewhere around fifty something. There may be more but my math isn't too good.  I will post a picture of each one and some showing how they looked when they arrived. Mom says I must blog once a week in future or else no biscuits for me. I love biscuits!
Okay here are all the new dogs and some aren't here as they got adopted. Will tell you more about those as well. This blog will be a long blog but I need the biscuits.

The dog above is Clarke found abandoned with Marlene.

This is Marlene the day Mom and Dad picked them up. Marlene is now a house dog and Clark has been adopted and will travel soon. Below is Marley. He was completely knotted up with dread locks that is how he got his name.

Natalie (below) was abandoned with a chain around her neck. She was very frightened. She soon came around though.

Lottie (below) was abandoned near the shelter. 

Heather was a tiny puppy that grew into a naughty dog. Abandoned near the shelter. She sits on the human's chairs and falls asleep with her head on the table. She chews the human's things. This morning it was a tube of toothpaste. 

 Iggy (below) was abandoned with a leg wound. 

Lauren (below) had a huge tumor that was left untreated and her humans thought it best if she stayed here with us. Her tumor was removed. 

Mack (below) was a tiny puppy and a very frightened puppy. 

Max (below) he lived on the streets outside of the bakery. We were all so shocked that he was so fat. The humans had been throwing snacks to him all day. Problem was they were unhealthy snacks. He could hardly walk when he arrived. If all street dogs were as clever as Max they would all hangout at bakeries. His name should really have been Einstein. 

This guy is Pete (below) abandoned near the shelter. 

This guy is Ralph (below) he had a head wound.

Ringo (below) came in very thin. 

Oliver another puppy came in us from near the local bakery (below)

Sybil  (below) was found lying in the ditch. She was hit by a car or a human and couldn't walk. 

Tina (below) She was run over.

Truffles (below) doesn't get on well with anybody and was adopted twice and dumped again as other dogs always attack her. Nobody knows why she always gets attacked. 

Zucchini (below) is Pumpkin and Kiwi's sister. He was adopted before Mom took in Pumpkin and Kiwi and then dumped a year later back on the streets.  

Leo (below) got shot several times and Mom and Dad got him a new piece of bone for his shattered leg. Mom says he still has pellets in him. He has been adopted and will travel just as soon as he can. 

Arthur (below) only has three legs. He got bitten by a spider and his human dumped him at the vet clinic and didn't come back. His leg was so bad it had to be amputated. 

Austin (below) was run over and had a badly broken leg and hip. 

Beanz and Rice (below) were unwanted puppies and have been adopted and will be traveling soon. 

Darcy their sister (below) is staying here in the house with us. 

Alana (below) was abandoned hungry and had mange

Basil (below) was left to die in a pool of blood after being run over. 

Then Mom and Dad picked up three pregnant females in two months. Phoebe a Beagle had seven puppies. Sunday called Sunday as she was found on a Sunday and gave birth the following Tuesday. She had six puppies and Jasmine had five puppies. Mom and Dad worked very hard when all the puppies were young. They pooped a lot. Ate a lot and made a lot of noise. Here are the moms with their litters. Jasmine has since been adopted and I heard that she lived in luxury in Nevada 

 Below are her puppies which are all still here. We are all hoping they get adopted quickly as they make too much noise. 

 Jasmine's Puppies.





Sunday's Puppies.






Phoebe had the most puppies she had seven. 








Jasmine got adopted and was happy to leave the puppies behind her. She was the best Mom as she was far more patient than Sunday and Phoebe. Phoebe must have been exhausted with her seven she is only a small dog and her puppies were larger than her all trying to play bite on her at the same time. She was enormous when she arrived.  Mom let me watch her give birth. I always wondered where we dogs come from. Now I know.  

Here is Phoebe happy to escape the seven little terrors. 

The puppies just filled up every space Mom could find and dad had to rush to build kennels quickly before the grew too much. 

I am supposed to cover all the news since my last blog.  I didn't do it because I am too tired now. I will be doing all the dogs that left since my last blog and then will stick to smaller blogs. Mom must surely give me some chicken for this huge blog. If you would like to help Mom and Dad look after us all please check out the Face Book page or Web site.
