Pooches in the limelight

Dog shows, dog fairs, dog events…we just don’t seem to have enough of our canines and are always there to cheer them up, time and again. And our pooches just love all the fun and excitement…but they always remember that they are there for their pet parents in thick and thin. Very recently, a pet dog in Coimbatore saved a three-year-old boy from a leopard! Yes the little braveheart scared the…

Beaming canine passengers

Have you ever seen the happiness, the excitement and the frenzy …when you take your lil’ pooch out for a drive? The moment you roll down the car window, two tiny paws and one beautiful head is ready to peep out…you exclaim, “No,” pull him back and roll back the window! He gives you a ‘not so happy look’ and maybe a bow-vow or two and then busies himself looking out, his excitement showing in his…

An honour to walk you!

It’s celebration time of the year again full of parties, goodies and not to forget the amazing weather. Being a dog parent, you know how your furry darling is always up at crack of dawn- and not to forget the signals for you to get up and move for his daily – most imp ritual- THE WALK. The signals as we might all share fondly- will sometimes be a gentle nudge with the cold adorable nose, at other…

It’s a red-letter day!

Every issue of D&P is very special and this an extra special one. I must tell you why? We have featured the English Springer Spaniel this time and you know what, my life is ruled by the most adorable and lovable Springer. When Sparkle became a part of our family, we were told that he is a Cocker puppy but when our vet examined him, he told that he is a Springer mixed. Nevertheless, Springer or…

Fabulous five!

It’s celebration time again…as we celebrate our 5th anniversary, the only thing which comes to our mind is – “Forever Yours”. Since time immemorial, our dogs have always stood by us, irrespective of who we are, what we do, where we live, etc. They just understand one simple language of love and they love us wholeheartedly. Every issue of Dogs & Pups is dedicated to this beautiful bond - this…

Woof to the world!

Pooches always have a peculiar way of finding ways into our hearts and homes. Even the bigwigs and celebrities are bitten by pooch love. The newest addition to the celeb dogs is undoubtedly Bo, who joins the line of US presidential dogs. For those who are unaware of Bo, let’s remind you that we are talking about the US President Barack Obama’s newest family member–Bo. This lovely dog has found a…

A bond so true

Pet parents are looking at new ways to pamper whether it be grooming, products, food, treats, toys et al to pamper their canine baby. It is really awesome to hear people say/write…‘My baby’ to their canine family. But what happens when the real human baby arrives? Does the canine baby get neglected? Is the canine baby unhygienic then? Does the canine baby shed a lot of hair? Does the canine baby…

Wagging welcome to 2009

The new year has begun…with new aspirations and renewed spirits. While some of youby, Shweta Khuranawould have spent the new year’s eve partying, others would have quietly enjoyed the warm comforts at home. A group of five students in Mumbai had an altogether different new year bash. While they were enjoying a walk after dinner, they happened to see a woman trying to slaughter a puppy as a ritual…

Bringing home a bundle of joy!

Whenever you adopt a puppy, you bring home 12-15 years of love, joy and companionship. The puppy gets a new loving home and blesses you with unconditional love and loyalty. While some of you would prefer to adopt a pedigree dog, others might consider adopting our Indian pariahs, who are healthy, sturdy and of course as lovable as any other pedigree dog. You can adopt such pooches from animal…

Kudos to all dog lovers!

Dog lovers around the world have proved that when it comes to raise a voice against the atrocities our dogs are facing in any part of the world, geographical borders are meaningless. Yes, we are talking about the inhuman activities that are taking place in Kerela. This has agitated the dog lovers not only in Kerela but also in other parts of India as well as abroad, where people have organised…

Let’s Color our Canine’s Life

Holi is just round the corner and we all look forward to this colourful festival. Well, Holi is undoubtedly the festival of colour but it is not a good idea to celebrate Holi with our darling pooches as they can harm their coat. But yes, it seems to be a good time to add colour to their lives. Just like Babu does! Well, Babu is a 35-year-old who earns a living by looking after the belongings of…

Dearth of dog-friendly homes

It seems that problems of dog lovers will never end. While we are fighting for the rights of our pooches for more dog-friendly places like parks, hotels, restaurants, shopping malls, etc, few of us are looking for dog-friendly homes. Yes, our darling pooches are not comfortable even in our homes now. More recently, a few housing societies in Mumbai have decided that pets cannot be allowed in the…

Apathy of pet parents

While pet ownership has given way to the concept of pet parenting, there are still a few people who have not imbibed this new concept and cases of neglect and abandonment of pets still exists. The recent example being that of a 6-year-old Rani, a Boxer in Mumbai, who died due to her parents' negligence. Rani was rescued by In Defence of Animals (IDA) from her house. Her condition was pathetic -…

Stark reality!

Many of you would have heard this particular incident where a pack of dogs saved a newborn who was deserted by his mother in the forests of Devarayanadurga in Tumkur. It so happened that an unwed mother abandoned her child in the forests. A pack of dogs followed her to the forest and guarded the child at night until a passerby found him and brought him back to the village. While this event of…

Loyalty auctioned!!!

Imagine having worked with dedication and loyalty for 11 long years, putting your best paw forward in everything. To be trained on specific tasks and then doing them with zest and enthusiasm – day in and day out, following a strict regime and routine.

Only the best will do for you

While reading the Times of India on the 4th of October, I was pleasantly surprised to see a St. Bernard peeping out of the logo. Surprised –? I looked again – but there he was, sharing this prized positioning with other animals. And it was then I realized that it was World Animal Day – a day to celebrate with our pets. World Animal Day celebrates and respects our relationship with all life forms,…
