You & I: Pawsome Twosome!

Love and time is what our furry angels need. This is true for both our pets and our delightfully expressive stray guardians. Do think of the amount of time you actually spend with them- keeping your daily activities/routine in mind. The moments you spend with them- you can see the happiness in their eyes and heart. Sparkle ensures he gets his daily dose of pampering by all- if someone is busy he just goes and keeps his head under their hand- I want and want it now. Same goes for our furry stray angels. Sparkle has a long list of stray friends- who come and say ‘hello’ to him and because of Sparkle we get special privileges- a nudge, a jump, a cold nose on the hand- we sure do feel special when love comes un-announced in the shape of four-legged waggy tails and warm eyes- it sure makes the moment and the day super special!

Recently on a radio chat on pets, I heard Dr Ajay Sud (a veterinarian in Delhi) saying that pet parents are more aware and he notices fewer problems in pets – Kudos to all pet parents who are making this happen by taking complete care of their four-legged friends through responsible parenting. For this, we need to first make our home dog-friendly. In this issue, we are giving an insight into common household products and plants which can be dangerous for our canine members, if ingested. Even a simple thing like a collar/harness needs to be a pawfect match for our pooch – and that’s exactly what our special feature talks about. Pooches touch our lives in more ways than one…read about Muffin, who reminds us that in spite of the short span of life that our pets have- they just give us millions of happy memories and learning.

We have also revamped our website – www.dogsandpupsmagazine.com – do check the ‘Article Library’ – a treasure of doing the RIGHT thing for your pooch, we have shared in the last decade. Also, it will be great to have your inputs in our section- ‘Readers Write In’- pawticipate, express, gain knowledge and have fun!

Summer is approaching…let’s keep our pooches cool and comfortable. Save your pet from heatstrokes… always provide clean drinking water to your furry friends at all time. Do take care of your furry guardians in your respective areas – they too need your love and tender care.

Sparkle and the team wish you happy sunny days ahead!
