Bangsiri is one of more than 200 dogs who used to live in Daejeon, Korea, with a loving rescuer named Jung Nan-young. Throughout 2007 and 2008 Ms. Jung was under pressure from the city authorities and from her landlord to move out of the converted greenhouse where they all lived. Many volunteers and supporters helped get Ms. Jung’s furbabies into good homes; Bangsiri is one of many “foster failures” from the Daejeon shelter crisis. She changed my life, and I’m completely in love with her.
On October 3, 2016, after eight and a half wonderful years together, our time together was cut short. This site is now a memorial to my beautiful princess Bangsiri.
Many thanks to Zayda Barros, who took the cover image at a charity fundraiser. Thanks also to the kind vets who helped me manage Bangsiri’s health problems.
Most of all, thanks to Bangsiri’s rescuer, Ms. Jung. Bangsiri lived with Ms. Jung for three years before we found each other in February 2008. Ms. Jung now operates a shelter called Daejeon Paws (aka Angel’s House), and she still needs donations and volunteer support.
