Burpy – a gift from Santa
We have a three years old genuine ‘All Indian’ Mongrel whom I chanced upon three years back in our society. We named him Burpy because as a pup he burped a lot! But we eventually came to know that he could make all sorts of noise, such as snoring, etc. Since we found him coincidently on Christmas Day, we consider him as a ‘gift’ from Santa. Me and my wife Namita try and ensure that Burpy gets the best—be it medicines, medical follow-ups, dog foods, his own space, vaccinations, etc. I genuinely believe that more and more people need to adopt Mongrels off the streets or from our local animal shelters. The amount of unadulterated love and affection we have received from him is beyond words.
