We would like to introduce you to the newest member of the Mook Lanta Eco Resort Team...... Barry.
|Our New Pup, Barry!|
Barry is about 6 months old and 1.5 months ago he was found by a concerned lady under the Siri Bridge to Lanta. She quickly realised that the dog did not belong on the streets and asked for help finding him a temporary home.
Mellisa, without Nick's knowledge, said she could take him on temporarily and he arrived that night, a scared bundle of fluff.
The next morning it was clear he was used to being in a house and with humans and he quickly adapted to living at the resort.
After a few 'conversations' it was agreed that Barry could stay, but only if he learns how to behave on the resort. So if you come to Mook Lanta, please remember:
- He loves affection, but must not jump up, but must sit to receive it.
- He is a puppy, so understand he is still learning.
- Never feed him at a table, but if you want to reward him, make sure he sits and gives you his paw.
And why is he called Barry? Well the staff wanted to call him 'Siri' because it is the name of the bridge, but Mellisa felt it was a bit girly. A friend, suggested the dog was named after him, Barry, and it just suited him and it stuck!
