Yesterday I discussed about pet's and while writing that blog, I suddenly remembered my first dog, whom I called Tsamba. [Tsamba means Luck ].
So today I wanna share with you the story of my braved Dog. He was also becomes my family hero too during the Typhoon Haiyan. If you could remember the Typhoon Haiyan is one of the strongest Typhoon in the history, and unfortunately it hits my province back 2014, if I am not mistaken. The typhoon damage a billion of properties and killed thousands of lives, however God is really good that he never leaves my Family as they survived.
Anyway let me start my story first of how Tsamba becomes Tsamba😅.
I called him Tsamba because of all the litters of his mom, he was the only one left and he is also too small and skinny when he was still a puppy. All of his siblings died due to an uncertain illness and we don't know how to help them. They are still puppy and we can't afford to bring them in to the vet and so we only tried to cure them in a natural way that we think can help them to survive but they still died. My mom is already hopeless about Tsamba and she even told me that soon our last puppy will died too as it looks so lifeless. He looks very lonely and he usually stay in one side. He don't like to eat, nor to drink water. He just wants to sleep and sleep and he even lose some weight because he looks so helpless.
I told my mom that I'll be calling him Tsamba, as maybe with his small chances of survival he can still survive with that name. If he survived then he's Tsamba [Luck], but if he died then his Tsuge [dead]. Lol. The name was just actually a joke, because I don't usually gives a name to a puppy, but I'm really hoping that time that he can still survive.
Since I got worried and I want to save him, I bring him to my work place. I work as nanny in our neighbor back then and I only go home every Saturday night and go back to my boss house on Sunday evening, so I must bring him with me so I can take good care of him.
My boss has dogs too, bringing him is not a big deal to my boss, but of course I still ask her permission so she won't think that my puppy is an stray puppy and throw him out 😅.
On his first day in my boss house, he firstly felt scared. But as the days goes by and with the warm welcome from my boss dogs he become lively. He started to wiggle his tail's until he became playful. He still don't eat too much but I never get tired of him. I always force him to eat and drink water, and sometimes I let him eat together with my boss dog's. As I was thinking that maybe he wants company. It was really effective because he really enjoyed eating with the other dogs.
Watching how he slowly becomes active and how he gain more strength and weight each day, makes me realize that he only felt alone and devastated those time's he looks hopeless. That was maybe because he lose his siblings. Bringing him to my work place is the best decision I ever made to help him survive as he really survived and grows strong and healthy.
Dog's are indeed like humans, they also have emotions and feelings as well, and they also felt devastated when they lose their family members. I hope humans don't invalidate their feelings too.
That's how Tsamba becomes Tsamba. I think he don't like the name Tsuge and so he chooses to live so he can be called the real Tsamba!😉
The photo above is how Tsamba looks like when grows up. I actually have photos with him in my old Facebook account, but unfortunately someone hacked my account and so I failes to save some photos of him, which is sad.
Fun facts and beliefs:
In our province, there's this old belief saying that a dog that has a socks like fur in his/her feet, hates water . I mean if the fur in the dog's feet is white it means they don't like dirty water, they don't like if their feet gets wet and they also hate it when they step on a wet surfaces. Which I think is true, because that's actually the attitude of Tsamba.
Tsamba is an Aspin (Filipino Stray Dog) as they belong to the indigenous-mixed breed.
However his very sweet and loyal dog to me. Every time I go home for my rest day he always go with me. He was my best friend and loyal companion indeed. He always follow me everywhere and that makes me worry about him specially if I go outside as there are some stray dogs that attacks him. Of course as the owner it's really painful to me and so to protect him, I sometimes don't allow him to go with me.
He grows up brave actually, and every time I go home to our house every Saturday night I don't feel scared because I have him. He never leaves in my side and he always showed me that he will protect me anytime that I'm in trouble.
My boss likes Tsamba so much because of its braveness. Her dogs don't bark but Tsamba has a big bark and that makes my boss proud of him. All the outsiders always back off their feet, when they saw Tsamba as he always shows that his ready to attacks trespassers. He was actually a very territorial like I do😅.
When I resigned in my work, my boss asked me to leave Tsamba under her care. I was actually sad when I heard her favour, but I can't refuse because of her kindness and she was also the one who's feeding him and so I just agree. I silently cried that night ,because I will be separated on him. I love my dog so much and I know he do, but it was the time for us to get separated.
I think he can sense me, as when I was about to leave my boss house I saw Tsamba, and it seems like he knew that I was leaving the house because he never leaves me out of his sight and no matter how much I tried to trick him, he always go back and forth to the gate just to make sure he can still saw me going. He was patiently waiting to me there, but I really can't bring him with me.
Dog's are indeed smart. It seems like they can feel the emotions of their owners too and so they become very much attentive.
While I am trying to trick him I suddenly heard him cry. He made a small howl and my heart's was broken hearted as I know he knew that I am leaving him. I don't know why but he really makes me feel guilty. I hug him so tight and I said sorry. I talked to him and I told him that he already have a new owner and so he must not go with me and stay. I saw on his eyes how sad he was, and it was like he had a teary eye that time, but he still do stay. He still listen and obeyed me after all.
I felt so broken hearted that time and I can still hear him crying while watching me leaving.
So funny, remembering him while typing this blog makes me cry. Lol. I really do missed him. He was my first dog and so his memory remains in my heart and even it's been almost a decade since I lose him, his memory still makes me sad.
Anyway I go home that night without him. I walk in the dark street by myself but I just think that I am with him and so I didn't feel scared.
Unfortunately the next morning my boss texted me and telling me the bad news about Tsamba.
