Anna Singh was not a born dog lover. Her first acquaintance to dogs was six years back, when incidentally she met Einstein, a Lhasa Apso puppy at a movie shooting and she fell in love with him at first sight. That day changed her and Einstein’s life forever…

How Einstein entered her life…

I happened to go to the sets of a movie, starring Jackie Shroff and Govinda. There, Einstein landed as an actor. He was the most adorable being I had ever seen in my life. Incidentally, Einstein put his face into my lap. I wanted to touch and hold him, but I didn’t know how to do it. Anyway, I left the shoot and came back. In the evening, Mr. Khan called me and asked me to look for a home for Einstein. Impulsively, I offered to keep him. Since I never had dogs, I called my dad. To my surprise, my dad did not object. So, Einstein came to me in a red basket. It was the best gift that I ever got.

The bonding grew…

When Einstein came, it took me a while to lift him and hold him. The next morning was panicky as Einstein threw up. I was very upset and my friends were surprised to see me so worried. I called up my vet and best friend Dr. Karkare at six in the morning and started crying, saying that Einstein is going to die. He said that I am over-reacting and assured me that it is absolutely normal. For the first month, my dad did not like him but now, Einstein eats from his plate only. Today, Einstein is my dad’s buddy and my first love.

About her pets…

I share my life with Einstein and Boy (Einstein’s son). They are very possessive about me and vie for my attention. They wake up with me and together we do our stretching exercises. They have their food with me at the dining table. It is a treat to see them gulp their food. My work involves use of lots of fabrics and my dogs simply love to roll over them. Whenever a new fabric comes, they are the first to inspect it. Also, when I happen to wear a saree, Einstein rolls over it, leaving behind strands of soft hair. Whenever he is with me, nobody can dare touch him. He has participated in lots of dog shows and has also won thrice. Though Einstein is a spoilt brat, Boy is an adorable darling. Anybody can carry and love Boy. He even sleeps with my dad. I miss them when I go out. While travelling, I ensure that I speak to them through a speakerphone.

On food…

We give them rice with chicken mince. They also have Marie biscuits in the morning. They also love vanilla ice cream. Whenever we order food from outside, we order two courses of no-salt, no-spices chicken kebabs for them, which are devoured even before they are opened.

On their exercise…

Both the dogs go for a walk thrice a day. Einstein also goes for a drive. Boy is basically an indoor guy and we have to literally push him out for his walks.

On their birthdays…

We love to celebrate their birthdays. We pick up loads of goodies not only for them but also make small packets of food to feed all the strays in the area. We remember that once we drove for hours together to find dogs for feeding.

She dreams…

I dream to have atleast 7 dogs.

Why they are perfect…

Human beings are connected to each other on a give and take basis. It is very important that we have these superior beings around us to get in touch with our own humanity. They teach you selfless love.
