Dhost-e is a very small puppy that lives at the guesthouse. He was dropped over the fence into A4T's yard and Abdul Raman rescued him.
Update from Sandra: I took little Dhost-e today to the vet for his first puppy shots. When I picked him up and explained to Najib (asked his permission) what I was going to do, he said, "What about the other dog?" I told him I'd do Dhost-e first and check out the place and see what it cost, then decide about Babur. Well, the "vet" was completely on the other side of town, on the way to Istalif!!! and it took awhile and an expensive taxi to get there. All the way, Dhost-e didn't move. He just cuddled up and looked around and didn't make a peep . At the vet, they put him on a table (now don't get any ideas like this is a vet's place in the Bay Area) over a dirt floor and quickly administered a shot for some dread disease that is rampant in Afghanistan, and also gave him a dose of Frontline!!! (for fleas) They didn't have the kind that does BOTH fleas and ticks. He sat patiently on the table while the "Dr." filled out a little card for him, and I paid. I'm to take him in again April 30, but I won't be back from India until May 7. I guess I'll take Babur too at that time. Anyway, it was a great outing, and it took nearly the whole afternoon to get back to Damazang, let him off, and get back over here.
Update: Dhost-e has been adopted by Sandra and resides with her in Piedmont, California.
