Friends, followers and supporters of this monsoon feeding community may also like to follow a spin-off project that has started in recent days. This sideline project aims to organise an operation for one of the feeding programme dogs to mend his nose. Well, he doesn't really have a nose. The dog is Tipu, the German Shepherd, who's nose was bitten off by a leopard two years ago. He currently can't breathe or smell through what's left of his nose, so the aim is to restore whatever function is possible, and at the very least to put an end to the recurring infections he gets in the open wound. All his food is currently provided by this monsoon feeding project - so thank-you from him! He's put on lots of weight since originally photographed here which will make him strong for his operation.
