Remembrance

Friend, partner, inspiration!

“Padman was my brother (cousin), it was the love for dogs that bonded us together, that’s how DogsIndia.com was born. If I had to describe one quality of Padman that I most admired it was his sincerity and how he just could not tolerate people who weren’t sincere. I lost a Brother, Friend, Mentor, and most of all a person who taught me values in life.” –Dr. Suresh Bhimsingh “Padman was…

I will always love you Tipsy

My life has always been surrounded by dogs. My first partner in crime was a beautiful Cocker Spaniel named Tipsy, who entered my life when I was four years old. It was always comforting to know that after a long and tiring day at school, someone would be waiting for me at home. Even though I was too young to realize it, but in retrospect, I have realized that dogs are the most beautiful friends to…

My best friend – Cheryl

If Diamonds are girls’ best friends… then I am an exception. Because Cheryl – Alsatian, is my best companion, come what may. We have grown up together and shared our lives together. Her role in providing support and companionship during my lonely teenage is unforgettable. She taught me how to deal with pain and be patient. She instilled the value of faith in our relationship. Losing her is the…

When You Lose A Pet…

I want to share my loss with all the people who love cats, and as each pet parent is aware, the loss is beyond words to describe. I have lost my beloved cat, Pumpkin, a month back. What intensifies my sorrow is, Pumpkin has just disappeared and  I cannot find her. I have been blessed with the company of eight cats, but Pumpkin outshined them all and was special. But what attracted me most was that…

Thought for food!

When destiny portrays her darker side, she gets extremely unfair. As it happened with us, when we lost our 13-year-old Labrador named Ginger. We all curse that moment, when we bought her local chews that cost her life and left us bereaved. Ginger was suffering from a kidney infection, and was operated on and was showing good signs of health gain. Her most recent blood report showed all positive…

Adieu Tina, my love!

For me, perfection is a mix of loyalty, courage and gentleness combined with majestic beauty and rare intelligence - all the qualities we find in the Great Dane. I can never bring myself to call a Great Dane a “pet.” They are loyal friends to whom you are always right. They are willing to endure hunger and discomfort if they can just stay with the ones they love. Fear and loneliness are unknown…

Love lost…time and again

Dogs are emotional beings and they crave for love and attention from their human parents. Like children, dogs should not be handed over to anybody. It is highly stressful for them if they are deprived of the company of the person they bond with. Adopting a dog is a commitment for his life. They can wilt away if they feel unloved and unwanted, just as Polo, a Pomeranian, was heartbroken when his…

Sammy….an angel, a compassionate pal and our Love

We all have one life, and its up to us to live it to the fullest, and those who are able to do that will always leave loving memories. Sammy, our loving pooch is someone we can never forget. Sammy, a German Shepherd, was the brightest amongst his siblings and at a tender age of three months, he was adopted by a family. But as the initial euphoria of bringing home a new puppy wore off, Sam became…

Loving Ladli

‘Death is sure to every born’, but the pain of losing one’s dearest is immense, for me losing Ladli - an English Mastiff was the same. It was 18th January 2006, Wednesday, when my one-and-a-half-year old angel - Ladli departed, to an unknown abode forever. Ladli, a fun loving kid, came to us in May 2004, just 68-days-old; she filled our lives with laughter and joy, within a few moments of her…

Doggie Bhayya,I miss you!

When I was born, my dog was 4 years and 3 months elder to me, so I called him Doggie Bhayya. He used to bark at all those who used to touch me. My mother was very proud of him. Today, I am 13 years old and I recently lost my Doggie Bhayya. He was suffering from cataract and lately was not eating his food properly. We all knew he was going to die and it was very painful to watch him suffer. We have…

A tribute to Bonzo

Thank you Bonzo for being part of our lives for 15 years (June 28, 1990 – May 22, 2005). No words can express our gratitude for the unconditional love and joy that you gave us and to our friends. We will always remember your innocence, your ability to express yourself and to communicate with us with your expressive beautiful eyes, voice and gestures. You understood our feelings and responded with…

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 was his majestic appearance! But with the passage of time, he became just another old and ailing…

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 time for him to go home! Every evening she would take a regular splash in the pond and settle herself…

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 bear. He was just opposite to his name as teddy bear means cuddles and teddy would just let us pet him…
