The world famous Ferry Dog has been recognized as the official ambassador of good will and peace for the Full Moon Party island Koh Phangan.
Normally known for the monthly all night techno, drink, drug & dance party, Paradise Island Koh Phangan is now officially known as the Home of the Ferry Dog.
This pesky pooch is normally found in front of the republican coffee house, also known as A’s Coffee Shop or the Buakao Inn in Thongsala. But Ferry Dog is no lazy doggie. She travels to Donsak on the mainland by Raja Ferry every few days. She doesn’t bother with all that local or farang pricing stuff. Ferry Dog uses her status as the Ambassador of Canine Peace and Love to travel free of charge.
She has friends in Donsak, who she meets with to discuss local issues effecting both Koh Phangan as well as our mainland cousins. Ferry Dog also has plenty of friends here on Koh Pha-Ngan Island. Known to yoga freaks, Danish developers and distinguished Thai customers of A’s Coffee Shop, she enjoys an afternoon nap at the outdoor tables of A’s when in Koh Phangan.
At Donsak’s Raja Ferry port she usually greets arriving guests before they depart to Koh Pha-Ngan. Many of Raja’s attentive staff confide their troubles to Ferry Dog while giving her a pat on the head.
She is rarely seen eating but maintains a very healthy figure and a lovely clean fur. Never eating from the vile corporate kitchens of Seven Eleven or Tesco Lotus, FDACPL prefers the local fresh markets and the camaraderie of the local vendors.
The mystery of Ferry Dog Ambassador of Canine Peace and Love (FDACPL) is why does she travel to Donsak on a regular base?
Does she make the journey to eat some of the special mainland fried chicken or perhaps some exotic seafood only found on the mainland?
Or is it simply that she wishes to escort some of her human friends across the Gulf of Siam to make sure they sail safely?
Some residents of Phangan say that she is the reincarnation of a local ship’s captain whose ship met an unfortunate ending. Now he is roaming the harbors looking for his long lost lover whom he left on the island while his main wife was working on the ship.
If readers can help to unravel the mystery of FDACPL many of Phangan’s residents will be delighted.
Please, anyone who has information on what she is doing in Donsak or why she travels between Koh Phangan Island and the mainland with Raja Ferry please write a few words to explain – thanks!
