Damnnnnn son. Sharp as a mother. Come on Mr. Demartino, you know how that snow and shivering can be confused with pollen and some sort of allergy break out.

Wow, Sherlock, you are just so brilliant, aren't you? Why would I lie? It WAS snowing the night I found her. I found her in early March. In the morning, it was still snowing, there was snow piled up on everything and all the streets had a layer of ice on them! It was my first time ever seeing snow, being from Florida, and I was super stoked about it. I even slipped on it and ate shit and had a huge bruise on my bum for the better part of a month.

Overnight lows of +2 C to 0 C are not inconsistent with the story.

Just went back through my Facebook to find the exact date I found her. Go do your detective work and look up the weather for Boeun-gun, March 6th. Using the site you provided, it says it was -3 Celsius. I don't know much about snow, but I know it when I see it, slip on it, and grab a puppy out of it.

I've seen a lot of people (2) outside walking their terrified-and-obviously-not-enjoying-themselves housecats on leashes recently.




I'm irked.
They can't afford dogs but don't want to be left out. Gotta keep up with the Kims.

I was in Busan at Gwangalli beach eating a daytime taco at a Fuzzy Navel.  I seen an ajeoshi there dining at one of the outside tables.  He dined with two big ass dogs on a leash, a cat in a harness that was acting like a wild animal, and a woman with Gangnam face.  I couldn't figure out if he was balling, weird, if I wanted to be like him, if I didn't want to be like him, or what.  I was confused.  I am still confused.

Her story is true. I live kinda in the same area, and we had a late snow. I know when she found the pup. It had been snowing.

Well, her story checks out.  She wasn't lying to us about rescuing a puppy. She might, in fact, be a really good person.

Gangnam face.  Priceless.

People need to get a grip when it comes to children. The whole thing is out of control, especially the emotional neediness. For goodness sakes, makes me want to join the Children Liberation Front or something.

Children piss everywhere on the streets. Children in restaurants. Children in cramped little apartments. Children yapping all the time. Children on buses. Children on planes. People treating children like some sort of right. People who can't spend a year in another country without having a child because they have emotional loneliness issues. People stopping every half a block to pet a child like its something magical. People who think children are people. People who think their children have the same emotional fragility as them.

Enough!

Well, snap. I actually don't really care and didn't read everything that is going on. I started to in the beginning, but stopped. Although, it did seems as though DeMartino was getting his Inspector Gadget on, but maybe came up a bit short. Glad you saved a pup.

Gangnam face...I will find a situation to use than in...Would that just be a face that looks as though it has had too much plastic surgery?

That's my guess. Think...http://imgur.com/eQnp2X5

If I had to define it:
gangnam face: 1) creepily beautiful. 2) a face that is less than the sum total of its parts.

It was my first time ever seeing snow, being from Florida, and I was super stoked about it. I even slipped on it and ate shit and had a huge bruise on my bum for the better part of a month.

If it was snowing, it was a pathetic layer. Also, in the morning it was partly sunny and above freezing. Weather says light rain and How could the snow be piled up when the previous week there had been no snow and temperatures in the mid teens?

Look, I don't doubt you found the dog (It's listed on the animalrescuesite), but I think you might be embellishing your story a bit. Those howling winds? 7kph. Now I can get the "IT WAS BLIZZARD CONDITIONS" if you're from Florida, but the wind? That's a gentle breeze in Florida.

The thing is that we tend to get people on here with "cool story bro" stories. You'd be amazed how hearty animals are. Did you think an arctic chill was about to set in? Anyways, congrats on rescuing the dog on the one day in March it happened to possibly slightly snow, but portraying it as on the verge of deaths door in Korean Siberia is a bit much.

Anyways, I apologize for focusing on the embellished details and not looking at the big picture of you adopting the dog. The thing was that the whole "2 months ago" and snow thing set off the BS meter because it was a rather mild winter and I didn't recall any snow outside of maybe Gangwondo over the last two months. Like I said, we get a lot of BS stories here by people with no post history so some stories get taken with a grain of salt.

My first week here, it was snowing and crazy windy. I found a tiny puppy, maybe a month or 2 old, IN THE SNOW. SHIVERING. It was skinny, and cold...
Good job. Mine was a rescue as well. Found her in a trash pile covered in sores and too starved to run away. Considering how sought after dachshunds are here in Korea, I was really surprised to see somebody tossing one out like that!

3 years later and she's fine (except for some serious trash eating issues. Damn dog.).

What a cutie! Glad you found her. I just don't understand the way animals are treated here. And the dog I found has serious food insecurity- she tries to eat anything and everything, including trash, bugs, bones, bird shit... anything she can find on the ground. I have to keep an eagle eye on her when she's outside pooping because she finds all kind of nasty stuff. She's ravenous, even if she's full... she doesn't even chew her food, so I have to feed her in small increments or else she'll eat it all in a couple seconds and throw it up. When I first found her I literally had to drop 1 or 2 one pieces of kibble at a time into her crate to slow her down. She's getting better about it, and I can keep my hand on her food bowl without her getting aggressive... but she growls and moves away if I put my hands near her bone or other chew treat. We're working on it :/

Well, let me tell ya... when the dog was previously living on the street, food was hard to come by. So yeah, it's gonna have trust issues.  Word of advice, next time you see a stray dog, don't take it home... and there will be a next time...and another... and another... and another. There are a shit load of stray dogs here, they also are sometimes cooked into 영양탕. Welcome to Korea. You aren't in America anymore.  Good on you for being compassionate though, can't fault you for that.  :wink:

This is the first I've heard 영양탕. Just another word for  보신탕? I looked both of them up on Naver and interestingly 영양탕 translates to 'nutritional' soup and 보신탕 to 'rejuvenating' or 'strengthening' soup. ;D :huh: :sad:

Yeah I've had Koreans explain to me that dog is very nutritious and full of protein, etc. I mean, fine. But surely this is not wizard meat.

Dog meat is full of protein because it's meat, lmao.

It's not anymore nutritious than any other kind of meat, and is actually not the best kind of meat for human consumption. It's just a Korean misconception due to common practice started back in the day when protein was hard to come by. When you have limited food options, it becomes "very nutritious" -- better than little to no protein at all. The rest is a carryover from other countries for pretty much similar reasons.

Definitely not anymore nutritious than other options available, and other options would actually be more nutritious.

I don't personally have a problem with the consumption of dog meat, though, only with their treatment of the animals prior and their method of slaughter.

Semantic issue...many have been calling these animals "strays", but most aren't strays in the least (they didn't stray from their home).

Most were disgarded/abandoned.
