If I have to post one single image of Dor Dor, this will be my choice.
I like the smile on his face and the soft colors of the sea.
His eyes tell us that he is happy!
Please enjoy :-)
Here are some stunning photos of an eagle catching a fish from the sea.
The three pictures were taken by my classmate Mr. Chung Kwok Fan.
A magnificent eagle swooped down, zeroed in on its prey.
While having undivided attention on its prey, it dived down, slowed somewhat and momentously suspended itself in the air.
Its action was so quick, by the time you saw it doing that, it already has its prey caught in between the legs.
Throughout this act, the spectators were thrilled. It was exactly the moment a photographer has been longing for.
Again, congratulations to Mr. Chung for taking the photos.
These are photos which should be submitted to the National Geographic – something which Mr. Chung has repeatedly declined.
How many years can a mountain exist
before it is washed to the sea?
These are the familiar lyrics from Peter, Paul and Mary’s Blowing in the Wind.
Here are some 3 photos taken by CP, they show buildings in Hong Kong built near to the sea – buildings subject to the natural environment – wind, waves and accelerated corrosion due to the proximity of sea water.
Maybe, tomorrow will come a 1 in 200 years typhoon and waves will shoot up the air, maybe, just maybe . . . . . . .
But right now the people in these coastal houses are enjoying their sea view, enduring the inconvenience of transportation etc.
So, how many years can these buildings exist?
The answer is blowing in the wind, my friend, the answer is blowing in the wind . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
A shower a day, keeps the heat away!
Here is a photo taken by my friend CP.
Dor Dor’s owner, a woman, was giving him a shower.
She belongs to the Tanka people – people who catch fishes in Hong Kong for a living. With fish resource now dwindled, some of them resort to rearing fishes in the sea.
Her traditional straw hat keeps out the sun, she was wearing a colorful shirt and has Crocs on for her shoes.
In the picture, you can also see how those mariculture rafts are assembled – basically inexpensively from plastic water tanks on the peripheral and with fish nets in the interior.
Hope this picture helps you to understand the condition under which Dor Dor lives!

Dor Dor likes apples.
Understand apples are a nice treat for dogs with many good ingredients including fiber.
This picture caught Dor Dor looking anxiously at the apple.
The apple was a bit out of his reach.
Like a child, he was not able to reach for the thing he wants, could only look at it from a distance!
Background is a hill, a boat and the sea.
His owner, of course, gives him an apple, at least one a day. The second pictures shows Dor Dor start nibbling at the apple.
It appears that many readers have asked many questions about Dor Dor.
Please be patient many of the answers are in the upcoming posts!
My friend CP spent many hours on the raft, doing nothing, just fishing.
He has many fishes, but more importantly, there was a beautiful sunset before his very eyes.
The dog, Dor Dor, was however, not totally impressed.
He just lied down on the raft resting.
He has seen so many sunsets before!
I am thrilled to start on a new series.
It is about a dog that lives on the floating rafts where fishes are maricultured and where visitors can visit and stop by for fishing.
My friend CP Chan would go out fishing on these rafts, stay there for a few hours until the sun sets. While waiting for fishes to take his bait, he would take pictures of the dog and the surrounding.
The attached photo is the first one I posted to give you a general idea of how life is like for Dor Dor and the environs. Basically, Dor Dor is surrounded by water.
Dor Dor is so cute and likeable.
I am glad that I found him!
