By now most of you should be rather familiar with the stray dog incident at Pulau Ketam that happened a little over a month ago. The residents at Pulau Ketam basically rounded up some 300 hundred stray dogs on the island and sent them to fend for themselves in a small mangrove island called Pulau Selat Kering. This was their way to solve the ‘stray dog problem’.

The news spread from twitter to blog to facebook and mainstream media, and it all started off from one particular person – TV Smith.

Through his website at (which is a wonderful resource of everything Malaysia), pictures and videos of the abandoned dogs struck many of us in a very personal and direct way that a side column in newspaper can’t. From there hundreds of blogs and news sites picked up where he started and ultimately the rescue mission went underway, and is still on going.

TV’s contribution in bringing this awareness to the public and tireless effort in the rescue mission is something I truly admire and applaud.

So when I came across Honda Challenging Spirit website, TV’s name came up immediately as someone who fits right in to the word Dedication. My nomination goes to TV Smith.

Do help towards the cause.
