A bit of a strange entry this one as I'm sure you have gathered by the title.
When Dani headed back to the UK in July I returned to the Lassie animal shelter in Langkawi for another 9 weeks volunteering. I put the blog on hold as I didn't think it would be worth doing daily or weekly updates as they would have been along the lines of "I walked some dogs today....then I walked some more dogs.....then I fed some dogs...."
