The Pirate And Cupcakes. Lonely As A Cemetery Dog.
It was both heartbreaking and heartening to see this eye patched dog that turned around to smile at me when I called out in 2016. I am guessing she was probably abandoned here as a puppy.
The dog must have grew up very lonely in the normally deserted and vast graveyard where she ruled. Heartening because, once a year, there is an abundance of food for her to scavenge. Visitors leave behind prayer food such as Chinese cupcakes.

Behrang train station is strangely deserted. There is not a single person around. No passengers, no workers, not even a guard in sight.
Only soul that greeted me was one very lonely cat. A very skinny and young cat at that. Poor stray (probably dumped here) must be wondering why there are no humans to give it food. Or why it is so hard to find leftovers.
I usually carry a bag of dog food and another bag of cat food in my car. Many strays will not eat kibbles though. Luckily, I also have Whiskas wet food packs.
Need to relocate the animal after feeding or talk to the the Indonesian wrecking crew nearby. Hope I can persuade one of the guys to give it regular food.
More on the station next.
