Look here for photos of the cute ones we came across.
There were three puppies born on the beach near the Similana - a brown one, a black one and a "mix" of black,white & brown. The little brown one had something wrong with his eyes. A German couple went to the vets and bought some ointment and left it with a note asking people to put ointment in his eyes three times a day as they had to go home. The next day, the "mix" was missing (hopefully someone had adopted him) and the brown one was very poorly indeed. Then there were two! We gave them water and food, bathed "brown's" eyes and put the ointment in. Reluctantly we left him until the next day but we really feared the worse when we returned the next day but there he was playing happily with his black brother. We fed and watered them, put the ointment in and left. We returned for our last week nearly every day and there the two of them were (with mamma and pappa watching over them) playing or sleeping - until the day before we left. They were not at the Similana, they had moved up White Sand Beach to near the Sarojin (going upmarket!) but "brown" was missing! For one heart stopping moment as we approached we saw a brown shape off the beach in the long grass but, thankfully, it was only a brown stone. We didn't see any of the family again. I hope little brown was taken by someone who would look after him.
