Torii station. Okinawa's but hot-tub. They had a threadwall for awhile, but no one maintained it, so it died.

Didn't know about United and the dog thing. Nice to see social media workd for good sometimes.

Or a Buddhist problem. I have Sherpa and Tibetan friends who spend a lot of money buying animals destined for slaughter and then liberating them.

Coz can't seem to be able to tell the difference between a man and a woman.

Guangzhou is a man.

Guangzhou = man.

Pay attention.

In the photos up thread, you see Gringo male with an Indonesian wife and cute dogs. He talks about coming back to the states to teach school and being married to an Indonesian woman.

He's also been on Supertopo for a long time.

Sheesh.

Ok great Wang-chung has been here a long time.

I've never seen the dude here, but that doesn't mean anything.

I think what Coz is saying and which I agree whole heartedly with, is that this 'trend' of asking for money here on ST is bullsh#t, put simply! And for Dogs? Sh#t trade em' in and rescue a new one when you get here if its that big of a hassle, but soliciting funds on ST for getting them here? BULL SH#T!!!

Shite tie a dog cage to a raft and set them loose, they'll end up in Hawaii in like 6 months or so.

Asking for money from people you don't know is BS.

Wang chung doesn't have any friends that could help him with the 300$ it takes or whatever? SCAM, SCAM, SCAM

Did I miss it... how much will it cost to bring 2 dogs to the US? The poor Costa Ricans who rented our basement apartment brought their little yapper "chispa"... so it couldn't have been that much.

The biggest difference between this thread and the other one is Guangzhu and family aren't blaming a shitty situation on everyone involved EXCEPT themselves... and THEN asking strangers for money. Oh, and the fact that I love dogs.

Best of luck. Let us know how much it is expected to cost, I'm curious.

If you can't take care of your own dog (Expenses and all), maybe you shouldn't have one...





Might seem shi!tty for me to write that...

But I also believe it...

FWIW, when I was in Greece my dog ate a bag of trail mix with raisins in it. The dog sitters heard raisins were toxic for dogs, so they rushed him to the emergency vet. They did liver enzyme tests twice a day and racked up a $500+ bill. I was a little upset because it was entirely unnecessary, but I paid it because I could and I love my dogs and my friends. It is water under the bridge... but I'm happy to take donations!

Why is giving Bridwell money ok and not this?

Aren't people free to donate to whatever they like?

If you don't like it, don't click it.

So if you want to help me with dogs here's what I need.

I really need a house with a large yard in the bay area so they
can have a place to roam. It can't be a rental either so I need to
buy a house to get a dog or two. But to do that I need down payment $,
way more than I have currently saved. Figure 20% down and 500k house
cost. Maybe the taco can help me raise half of the 100k I need.

Please help local american dogs!

It sounds to me like the OP (who I don't know but recognize from his posts on rc.com going back for years) is getting somewhat unexpectedly screwed by the Indonesian government--not sure how that's so different from unexpected health problems. (Yeah no one chooses health problems, but you can get a job and pay for health and disability insurance, right?)
I don't think anyone starts a climbing gym because they see it as a path to riches--they do it because they like climbing and want to contribute to a local climbing community, or perhaps try to establish one in this case.

We all have to carefully consider our charitable donations in these challenging economic times, but this one seems pretty legit to me. I probably won't contribute as I see shipping dogs across the globe as a bit of an unnecessary luxury. But there's no reason to hate on or mock this guy, just add his to the 99.99% of charitable causes to which you won't contribute.

I wonder what would have happened if he had just decided to keep his mouth shut and because of whatever reasons could not afford to bring the dogs and he found a home for them, but then found out after he was here in the states that the people he gave them to lost there job and put the dogs in a shelter and they were killed.

Then he writes a note in the dog thread saying good-bye as he had to leave his dogs because he just couldn't afford to bring them to the states.

I wonder how many would say.. Hey.. why didn't you say something. I would have pitched in.

I wonder how many of these nay sayers might have even pitched in a 20.

Just wondering folks. Thats all.

Good luck getting the dogs to the US.

The donation link you provided does not update the amounts you have already collected. How much will it cost and how much have you received so far?
