The owner of a dog missing for two days after it ran off was overjoyed at getting her furry friend back after being rescued by a bus on a busy Bangkok expressway.
Cookie was spotted wandering exhausted along the Si Rat Expressway in the scorching midday sun on Tuesday with many drivers having to slow down to avoid hitting the lost dog.
To the rescue was bus No. 166 who had received a call warning of a dog on the road ahead.
The kind driver stopped his bus and called the dog who wearily climbed aboard before laying under a seat to cool off and rest after two days wandering.
The dog’s owner saw the video on Facebook after it went viral and contacted the bus company to go and pick up her missing pooch.
The woman told reporters she had rescued the dog about a year ago but on Sunday Cookie escaped from the garden and vanished into thin air until she watched the video online and spotted him straight away.
Food Park At Big C Ratchadamri Is Dead Without Chinese Tourists
Photos of the Food Park located at Big C on Ratchadamri Road in Bangkok looking like a ghost town have been widely circulated on social media over the past 24 hours.
Of course, food courts are currently closed in Bangkok due to the government order, however, this has been the scene since last April.
Normally the Big C Superstore would be packed from open until close with thousands of Chinese tourists passing through its doors every hour.
The Ratchadamri branch was the companies flagship store making more money than any other in Thailand.
The overflow reached every part of the complex including the Food Park which just like the supermarket, was packed from morning until night.
Now, with restrictions on entering Thailand still in place, both are deserted and like a ghost town.
Lower Sukhumvit Is A Ghost Town
This was the scene showing many closed bars, hotels, shops and restaurants on Sukhumvit Road this week.
Like many people living in Bangkok, I was hoping the powers that be weren’t going to pull the plug on restaurants. Sadly, they did.
They’ll be staying closed until further notice when someone decides it’s safe for people to eat with friends and family again.
There’s a lot of people whose livelihoods are been lost. It really is a sad sight.
Quakers: Pet Duck Rides Owner’s Motorcycle
This motorcycle rider is often seen around Chinatown at night carrying his pet duck on the back of his bike.
Here he is in a video at a retro night market near Bangkok’s Ong Ang canal. Shoppers gathered round to take pictures of the unusual pillion passenger and ask the old man questions about the cute pet.
He said his duck has a name tag around his neck which also has a flashing light and his phone number, in case he ever gets lost. He has a remote control which he says controls the duck.
