Let there be Love Light Joy…. Always

Time for new beginnings,miracles, magic and more, it is also our responsibility to see that pets and Indies are taken care of. If you notice abuse in any manner- raise a voice and bring about awareness. On a recent trip, we noticed a very unfortunate labrador who was constantly tied, on enquiring my sister tried to raise awareness on the plight of the unfortunate dog. In-spite of being tied at the gate, the Labrador with his heart of gold always had a wag for passers-by.

As he was an old dog, watching him made me realise this abuse must have gone on for long but he still believed in goodness of people! It is indeed very important to raise a voice- as my sister rightly said that she could do small things and nothing will stop her from taking a step if she can prevent or create awareness. Pets who become a part of a family who adores them are truly lucky and let us also know at the same time there are many pets and Indies who are abused. So, starting 2024 do take right actions and spread awareness to do the right thing.

Recently an Indie dog was seen travelling in a BMTC bus plying between Marathalli to Indiranagar in Bengaluru sparked debate amongst netizens who felt it was great for the Driver and the Conductor to have let the dog travel, some even felt that Bengaluru as a city is very accepting to pets. A similar incident was seen in Mumbai earlier this year where an Indie dog was seen travelling daily in the local Mumbai train from Borivali to Andheri. The dog was seen sitting at the entrance of the train and enjoying the ride, he seemed to be well aware of his destination. In an another incident Boji an Anatolian Shepherd mix(a street dog) in Istanbul became an internet sensation when people saw him using the public transport – metros, trams, trains, ferries etc. He would travel with a purpose and knew where he was going, later he got adopted by Ömer Koç, a Turkish Business man and an art collector.

As we celebrate Christmas and New Year 2024 , we wish you Joy, Love, Light, Health and more Always. Let’s practice this quote by Edward Everett Hale, “I am only one, but I am one; I cannot do everything, but I can do something. What I can do I ought to do, and what I ought to do, by God’s grace, I will do.” Join us on our Facebook and Instagram pages to celebrate our Precious Paws- today and every day!
