Eight puppies born in ‘royal’ bloodline of late Thai king’s dog

Photos of eight healthy “grandchildren” of Thong Daeng – the mixed-breed dog famously adopted by His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej and destined to become his favourite – were unveiled at a press conference on Tuesday (October 8).

Chongrak Wachrinrat, acting president of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at Kasetsart University, which looked after His Majesty’s pet dogs in his absence, said the puppies came indirectly from Thong Daeng’s own male offspring, Thong Ek and Thong Yhip.

His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn had asked the faculty to breed dogs of the same bloodline as Thong Daeng to remind people of his late father, who wrote often about his beloved copper-coloured pooch, drawing allegories about the nobility to be found in the humblest places.
