Help Bonnie!

Abaikan paha sebesar guling. Perhatikan Bonnie aja. Ini per tanggal 14 September 2015.
Pulang dari vaksin pertama terus Om Ojek ngantuk, jadinya nongkrong dulu



"A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than she loves herself"
- Josh Billings


Puppy lucu ini namanya Bonnie. Per tanggal 29 September 2015 kira-kira usianya 3 bulanan. Bonnie adalah hasil penelantaran tetangga kost yang mengira bahwa memelihara bayi anjing Bali adalah cara yang tepat untuk mendapatkan penjaga rumah gratisan, tanpa mempertimbangkan perawatan, pengobatan, dan pemberian makan.

-----
This cute lil angel is Bonnie. As per September 29, 2015, she's about 3-month old. She was abandoned by people next door who thought that giving leftovers to a Bali dog puppy results in free security guard for the house, without a slightest consideration to correct nurturing, healthcare, and proper food, not to mention her well-being.


"Kamu udah bisa sayang aku belum?"

Pertama kali datang ke tempat saya, "body check" Bonnie menghasilkan 100 lebih kutu. Di beberapa bagian tubuhnya terdapat luka-luka scabies yang konstan digaruk. Perutnya besar sekali, tapi tubuhnya ringan saat diangkat. Seminggu kemudian saya ke BARC untuk memeriksakan Bonnie karena saya sudah habis akal dan habis duit (bukan karena Bonnie tapi derita freelancer UNDP, United Nations of Delayed Payment). Tiga hari setelahnya, setelah rutin memberi pil anti-cacing dan obat anti-kutu, suntikan scabies, vaksin pertama, nutri-plus gel dan minyak ikan, gendutnya perut Bonnie memberat, nafsu makannya kembali, dan garuk-garuknya berkurang banyak, apalagi jumlah kutunya.

-----
The first time we met, Bonnie's body check gained more than 100 fleas and ticks. There were scabies wounds in some part of her bodies due to her constant scratching. Her belly was swollen but she's lightweight. A week later, after a visit to BARC, Ubud, her health had improved greatly. We came home with a truckload of vitamins, fish oil, deworming pills, tick & flea drops, and Bonnie also got her first vaccine and scabies shot. Her appetite is competing with me, her belly is now just chubby and healthy, and her scratching is less frequent now, and the parasites living in her has been decreasing dramatically.      

Hampir 24 jam pasca steril. Kekenyangan abis brunch

Kemarin, tanggal 28 September 2015, Bonnie melengkapi vaksinnya plus vaksin rabies sekaligus disteril, biar di masa depan Bonnie nggak ikut andil jadi masalah over populasi anjing terlantar di Bali. Sore sebelum tulisan ini tayang Bonnie masih riang membuntuti motor saya sampai ujung jalan, diam sebentar memandangi saya, lalu kembali lagi ke rumah beberapa saat kemudian. Operasinya kemarin tidak menghalanginya untuk tetap aktif layaknya bocah.

-----
Bonnie completed her vaccines yesterday, along with rabies shot. She's also spayed so that in the future she won't contribute to one of the biggest problems in Bali: over-population of stray dogs. In the afternoon before this entry was published, Bonnie was still tailing my bike to the end of the road, sit still for a while, and got back home few minutes later. The procedure did nothing to hinder her feat of becoming a puppy.  

The thing is, saya sudah punya Tuhan. Usianya sekarang satu setengah tahun dan badannya besar. Setiap mereka berduaan, saya selalu harus jadi "wasit" karena Tuhan "sayang" sekali dengan adiknya (atau dibercandain sampai ke titik di-bully sampai Bonnie bete dan marah-marah). Tempat kost saya juga nggak kondusif untuk seekor puppy. Saya nggak punya halaman, kecuali teras seluas 1.5 x 2 meter dan tempat parkir motor yang sudah terlanjur sempit. Beberapa kali Bonnie dipukul tetangga dengan balok sebesar tubuhnya. Alasannya? Bonnie menggigit anaknya yang iseng menarik buntut Bonnie saat dia sedang makan. Iya. Dafuq. Saya menyayangkan orang seperti itu berhak memiliki keturunan.

-----
The thing is, I already have Tuhan--"God" in English. Her Bitchiness is one and a half year now and She's growing relatively big. Everytime Bonnie and Tuhan together, the later always overpower Bonnie to the point of irritating and resulting in Bonnie gets all cranky and hostile. My place is also insufficient to raise a puppy. I live in 3 x 3 m room with a mere 1.5 x 2 m porch crowded with cloths hanger and stuff, and bike parking at the front that's already too cramped even for people to pass. Once my neighbour hit Bonnie with a club as big as her body because she bit a child. Why? Because the kid was pulling her tail while she's eating. I feel sorry for the world because such human is permitted to reproduce.  

Jadi, saya memanggil semua pecinta anjing, terutama di Bali. Saya perlu seseorang untuk mencintai Bonnie, menyediakan perlindungan, makanan, perawatan, dan kasih sayang yang diperlukan sebentuk mahluk hidup yang mampu mencintai manusia lebih dari dirinya sendiri. Berkat orang-orang baik di BARC Bonnie sedang dalam proses penyembuhan scabies. Bulu-bulunya sudah tumbuh kembali dan mulai terlihat mengilat, meskipun sedikit ujung-ujung telinganya masih terlihat seperti berkerak dan bagian belakang kakinya ada bekas-bekas luka yang sedang berangsur pulih.


-----
This is a call for help, for all dog lovers reside in Bali. I need someone to love Bonnie, someone who will provide protection, food, care, and shelter needed by a creature that is able to love human more than it loves itself. My biggest gratitude for BARC, because of them Bonnie is recuperating from scabies. Her coat has regrown and starts to show its shines though the tips of her ears still have a little scales and her feet have recovering wound marks.

Jika kamu di Bali dan tertarik mencintai Bonnie dan bersedia menjaga persahabatan menyenangkan dengan Si Mata Baik, silakan kontak saya, 24 jam, melalui email, SMS, telpon, Telegram, dan WhatsApp.

If you happen to live in Bali (Denpasar, Ubud, Kuta, Klungkung, Gianyar, and in-between) and willing to have a friendship with the owner of these sweet, kind eyes, feel free to contact me anytime, 24/7.


Harap diingat, memelihara anjing perlu waktu, kesabaran, dan ketegasan. Seperti anak manusia, anjing belajar dari repetisi dan disiplin. Satu setengah tahun bersama Tuhan membuat saya belajar semua hal itu. Oh, dan beberapa season Dog Whisperer-nya Cesar Millan, tentu saja.

-----
Please remember, having a dog as your companion takes time, patience, and discipline. Like a human child, a puppy learns its boundary and limitation by repetition. That's what I learned from my one and a half year with Tuhan. Oh, and few seasons of Cesar Millan's Dog Whisperer, of course.


Kami--saya dan Bonnie--sangat menunggu kabar baik. Kami berharap pada orang-orang baik yang bersedia berbagi bahagia.

-----
We--Bonnie and I--are waiting for the good news. We reach out to touch the hearts of those good people out there who are eager to share loads of love and happiness.

Because, you know, Charles Schulz said: Happiness is a warm puppy.

UPDATED:

Bonnie sekarang sudah menemukan rumah dan keluarga baru. Tadinya cuma mau fostering selama saya ke luar kota 5 hari. Tapi begitu melihat "benda" lucu di atas, suami teman saya, yang Labs-nya berkali-kali menang kompetisi Agility, Jumping, dan Obedience, langsung suka sama kebayiannya.

-----
Bonnie has found her family. My friend, a mother of two, was about to fostering while I'm away for work for five days. But soon as her husband--whose Labs had won numerous dog shows for Agility, Jumping, and Obedience--saw Bonnie, it was love at first sight. She was such a, adorable cutie today.  
It's a happy resolution, all in all.

Thanks everybody! 

Will show off Bonnie with her new family anytime soon.
