Towards responsible pet parenting!

“When the Man woke up he said, ‘What is Wild Dog doing here?’ And the Woman said, ‘His name is not Wild Dog any more, but the First Friend, because he will be our friend for always and always and always.'”— Rudyard Kipling (author of The Jungle Book). Pooches are a part of our family and pet parents are always ready to go an extra mile for their health and happiness.start button not working…

The amazing world of pooch!

Our furry friends never fail to amaze us – sometimes leaving us thinking, if only they could talk in human language. If they could, I bet we would love to talk more to our pooches than anyone else. They seem to understand everything – every mood, every joy and moments of despair – they seem to replicate our feelings. There’s never a dull moment when you are blessed with a dog. Here are a…

“After years of having a dog, you know him. You know the meaning of his snuffs and grunts and barks. Every twitch of the ears is a question or statement, every wag of the tail is an exclamation.” –Robert McCammon, author of Boy's Life As Dogs & Pups celebrates 12 Years of Pawsomeness… we look back and see how much paw love we have shared with our readers and vice versa. Things have…

Likewise, other states like…

FOR YOU I WILL

Sparkle’s first Diwali – the little bundle was just about two and a half months old. We tried our best to save him from the ordeal – but exhaustion & tension of the noise – led to the little one finding himself a safe corner and guess where? In a shoe where he snuggled his nose and ears in and then slept. Ever since these tiny paws came home, it’s been – FOR YOU I WILL – to keep you safe and…

Excitement & Exuberance – Each Day and Every Day!

What amazes me is how Sparkle greets us ‘Good-Morning’ everyday – so much excitement and exuberance every morning. He rushes up to me and Suhaan (my son) as if saying ‘WHERE WERE YOU? I have missed you so much and am meeting you after so long’. The feeling is so special when I see my Springer spring to us, cuddle and sniff us awake. Both me and Suhaan really look forward to this. In fact, if…

Love is all around – adopt it!

Love is a loving heart, a wagging tail, a wet nose, heart melting eyes, somebody who greets you with a jump and a spring! Each one of us who has ever loved a Dog knows the meaning of unconditional love. Love is specially best when it comes to you - unannounced - this specially happens when I meet ‘STARRY’- my favourite brown and white very handsome pariah. My heart sure does smile looking at his…

Treasure – that is what you are…

Treasure your dog as he treasures you. He senses your each and every move not to forget your emotions, tone of your voice- specially when you need that cold nose and cuddle- enquiring if all is great. They always have that- I AM THEIR....and I CAN HELP. In school – I lost a camera while on a picnic- on returning home, sitting on the dining table was very upset. My little four-legged friend (a…

Why God made dogs?

Sparkle’s cuddle made me think- Why God made dogs? - the answer was simple for Happiness and Hugs, Love and Loyalty, Friendship and Fun, to Give and to be Grateful. Our Furry Gurus teach us a lot more- Mindfulness, Compassion, Perseverance, Never Give up Attitude, Express - wag when you’re happy, growl or give warning signals when you’re not.

Beginnings & Happy Memories

The first day of your pup/dog is very special. Happy homecoming is possible only with planning and doing the right thing - read, talk, explore. A lot of activities happen before the arrival of the pup- and a lot of work afterwards. It’s a new environment for him - people, smells, places to explore - they need extra love, care and attention. It requires patience, time and loads of love, but believe…

Sparkle struck!

A new breed of pet parents has emerged- those who get trained by their dogs and their hilarious habits. But if you think of it- which I am pretty sure- Sparkle must be finding each and every habit of mine hilarious. The habits, I am sure, he likes of me are when I take him out, food time or play time. Otherwise I wonder what he thinks. My son keeps telling me that it would be so nice to know what…
