(East Timor Problems) An asu on our veranda

This morning Daniel called me to the front window of our home to point out our new friend the asu (dog) sitting on our veranda. I immediately took her some Meaty Bites and water. The veranda was swarming with ants, which had (somehow) infested her little body despite her best efforts to keep them at bay. Unfortunately, she also stank to high heaven, making it hard to imagine me getting close enough to her any time soon to give her a bath! Still, I was touched that she found her way to our house for her breakfast as normally she sits outside “our” family’s home. Her owners still have not returned from Ainaro so we continue to be her foster carers.
