The monks at Gyuto Monastery love the strays there, and look after them really well, calling us when they are sick or injured, and even bringing them to our clinic for sterilization (and offering to pay!). They don’t just call us, they stay and watch how the dog is treated, get medicine for it, and look after it during recovery – they are the loveliest! They even let an old injured mule live out his life on their grounds.They called us about a pup whose paw was injured and had parvo symptoms. It was so cute how they all watched with the concern of parents as we cleaned up his wound and gave him some painkillers. The little doggie must have felt SO LOVED!
While we were treating him, His Holiness The 17th Karmapa, who resides at Gyuto Monastery, came past and blessed the dog. His Holiness Karmapa loves animals and this guy was lucky to receive his blessing.
