At Mama Ru’s we have a couple local dogs that like to hang out. Their names are Connie (Corgi) and Mama Ras (mix) they are very sweet dogs who appreciate any pats, pets and leftovers! They are also wonderful watchdogs and will let you know if anyone is visiting. Wendy the manager also has a dog that will visit his name is cyclone, a stray of Rarotonga she adopted. Don’t feed him…you will see why when you meet him:)
When it is low tide you will see them on top of the coral head ‘hunting’ for fish…I have never seen the catch anything but their dedication is inspiring.
We love the local dogs and know you will too. Esther Honey is a non-profit organization that is responsible for any animal care that is needed; they survive on donations only. So, if you are a dog lover make sure to check them out while you are on the island, they are amazing. You can also take a look at their site: http://estherhoney.com/index.htm
