Kabang, the dog that once became the media sensation has passed away at the age of 13 in her sleep. A day after Kabang’s death, her veterinarian, Dr. Anton Lim announced memorabilia in honor of an honorable canine.

Dr. Anton Lim has been taking care of her ever since the death of her owner which is the father of the children she saved.

A Facebook post by Dr. Anton Lim showed a metal statue of one of the most celebrated animals in the Philippines. Alongside it is an impression of Kabang’s paw prints that were taken before the dog’s burial.

Born in February 2008, Kabang was announced as a hero after she saved two children from being hit by a tricycle in 2012. The unfortunate accident results in the loss of her upper snout.

The eleven-year-old and three-year-old girls were crossing the road when Kabang jumped out to shield them from a speeding tricycle. The aspin breed dog’s snout was mutilated in the motorbike’s wheel, inquiring about urgent medical help.

Kabang’s brave effort caught the international attention and moved Lim to send the dog for surgery in the United States. She was treated at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and the snout reconstruction procedure took five hours. While at it, they also treated all other complications.

Kabang is the official symbol of responsible and brave pet ownership and advocacy against animal cruelty after she was proclaimed as the ambassador of dog will.

“You’re 13 years old or 91 in human years and I knew one day this would come. No matter how I prepared myself mentally, the suddenness of how you died, left a deep void in my heart,” Lim said in one of his Facebook post. “You have always been a hero, selfless to a fault.”

“Thank you for the 8 wonderful lesson-filled years in loving life and loving unconditionally. I and my family already missed you, Kabang, even though you are gone for just a few hours,” Lim added.

“May we see each other again.”

Mothers-Teachers Collaboration Makes PdPR A Success

Published

on

KINABATANGAN, June 25  — The implementation of home-based teaching and learning (PdPR) requires full commitment from teachers and students, but the role of parents is also important in ensuring its effectiveness.

Teachers at a school in the interior of Sabah are aware of mothers’ influence in the success of PdPR, especially in areas where it is difficult to conduct online learning.

A teacher, Najme Nasir, said mothers of pupils of Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Sungai Lokan, had given a strong commitment to making PdPR a success since last year.

“The one who gives a lot of cooperation is the mother at home, the one who helps the students a lot is the mother, the one who keeps nagging kids about their homework is the mother.

“For that, we really appreciate the role of mothers in helping their children and also helping us teachers implement PdPR,” he told Bernama when contacted.

Najme said the commitment of the mothers made it easier for teachers to monitor the progress of students at home as some areas in Kampung Sungai Lokan did not have good internet access due to the hilly terrain.

The school’s teachers and headmaster, Masnah Apong, always looking for ideas to encourage students to be interested in learning, he said.

Among them is using their own money to buy school supplies, wrapped them before delivering them to 62 school children at their homes.

“There is no denying that the performance of students in the interior is different from that in the city, let alone when PdPR was launched following the pandemic.

“For us, we want the students here not to be left behind in their studies,” he said.
