Paw Times

A true love story…

Life is a mystery with its own twists and turns. Either you cry and get tensed about the adverse situation or you laugh on your worries. The philosophy of life at times becomes more philosophical when you have your dog travelling with you. I faced a difficult time when I happened to travel with my…

Flashing Smiles all around!

Flash was an unwanted, ill-treated and uncared 5-month-old puppy when he came to my son and his wife in December 1999. He was skinny and badly infested with fleas, ticks, etc. He looked so terrible that even the vet could not exactly tell us which breed he belonged to. But with love and care, Flash…

Are puppies always a pleasure?

The word ‘puppies’ reminds us of lovely, sweet and adorable darlings. These are the reactions I get from most people when they see my four Labrador pups. These are thoughts that cross my mind too when I see them... but most of the times... my vocabulary gets limited to a high pitched –NO! STOP! OH…

It is very encouraging to get such tremendous support and response from you. Your enthusiasm is very infectious and it gives the team of ‘Dogs &Pups’ a shot in the arm with each publication. Life is an ongoing learning process. However, all knowledge does not come from books and experience. God…

Lovingly yours

Dogs have a way with your heart. Once you have one, you can never do without one. That’s exactly what happened to me. While on my evening walks and interacting with several people who walk their dogs, I came across a Lhasa Apso who had just become a dad. That’s where I found my pup Cocktail, a mix…

Boozo buddy

Dog, in dictionary term means, “A domesticated canine mammal occurring in many breeds and that shows a great variety in size and form.” Ask a dog lover and you will get endless adjectives of all shapes and sizes. We adopted Boozo when he was one year and two months old from a tea-stall man in Noida.…

My best friend

After the death of my 3 year old Spitz Bobo in 1990, my father was so shattered that he absolutely refused to get another dog. I love dogs and wanted one but I could not convince my father to adopt one. My wish came true on our anniversary when my husband got me “Scooby”- a crème colour Labrador…

Sherry – our bundle of joy

Life hasn’t been the same since this bundle of joy named Sherry (Labrador) came into our lives. Sherry completed our family. Sherry was a winter baby. She came to us in winters, when she was less than a month old. It was a major task to keep her warm. For first few weeks, the whole house was…

Goodbye, Max!

Max was 12 years old. But like a child, he always wanted attention. Every time he felt hungry or thirsty, a growl was enough, and our attendants would rush to his aid and feed him. Good old Max, a majestic St. Bernard, one of our permanent boarders. He must have been his owner’s love and pride, such…

Pia: my golden lady

had grown up with dogs all around and Pia was one of my favourites. She was a beautiful golden lab. Her walk was like a little lady, she was very fond of the gardener and would carry his tools in a sack to help him do his work. They made quite a pair in the morning at 6 o’ clock, right till it was…

Your Valentine friend

Big beautiful eyes and a sweet little nose, I will give you all my love if you keep me like a rose. Love and care is all I need, Being alert and chirpy is in my stead. With you I love to run and play, I will always be with you I will always stay. If ever you wish I will run like a horse or jump like…

“Paw-Tales” l July-Aug 2004

Pati, Patni or voh! I am not the usual dog lover. I never had a pet, not even the occasional low maintenance gold fish or parrot. My disdain for dogs is probably hereditary. As a child, my mother was attacked by a pack of stray dogs and the fear of dogs has been transmitted to me through her genes.…

Teddy touched our hearts deep

The phrase “every dog has his dog” always crossed my mind when I used to see my dog lying flat on his back with his four paws dangling in air. Teddy was gifted by my mother on my birthday, making our family members five. He was a white spitz, similar to a snow ball, but we fondly named him teddy…
