Frustrated, Furious and Ferocious

Frustrated, Furious and Ferocious—it is a sad truth that we as a magazine have always believed in. Just unfortunate to have experienced it in real life! So, on first of March this year I was sitting at my home and sipping some tea at 7 pm, my son Suhaan, who is ten years old, had gone down with an elder to fetch something he forgot in the car. Unfortunately, and to all our dismay, Suhaan saw an…

Always on my mind

So the story goes on and I really thought my next editorial would not have Sparkle, but I guess we miss him most in the little things – every moment, daily joys we had with him.

The best moment of our day was every…

They give love & adoration like no other – it sure does make you feel complete. The melting eyes and the warmth–“smuggle” your heart in a…

I miss you more too!

So, I miss black and white—the fur, the warm nose, the mesmerising eyes, the six dots on the nose, the way he jumped and wanted to be with only us in the morning. I miss him in all the big things and all the little things—his stubbornness, his playfulness, his anger, his highness being grumpy and demanding his meal, and not to forget, the right over each snack which was served. I knew I was in…

With his antics and affection, he filled our hearts with a million joys. From the shoes he snuggled his nose into, to the furniture…

You owe it to them!

“Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made. ”—Roger A Caras. Still, we hear cases of people abandoning their dogs because it is too much of commitment, expense or care for them. Cases of pedigree and senior dogs being…
