Likes: Butter and her owner Phil
Ot Ot is our first in the Dive Shop Dogs blogs and she very much deserves this honour. She was found outside the resort dazed and confused, as well as being badly injured, and the staff thought she must have been hit by a car, She was nervous and it took Phil, the owner of the resort, some time, leaving treats and water for her, to gain her trust. Luckily, just as this happened there was a vet diving at the resort, who generously flew out to get medical supplies, set up an operating theatre in one of the resort rooms, and saved Ot Ot's life. She lost an eye, but this does not seem to phase her at all. Now, what she loves best is some love, and butter, from Phil as he greets and chats to his guests in the evening.
Phil now sponsors vets to come to the island for 8 weeks each year, so that they can help all the animals on Taveuni.
