Welcome to my space.
Blogging From A To Z Challenge (April 2015)
It was the year 2003, a pleasant November afternoon in Kochi, Kerala, India. We heard little Sonu’s voice, excitedly calling out to us from the front lawn.
“Shloka, Kartik, Aunty, Uncle, come soon. Our Spooky (Dalmatian) is going to give babies.”
Before she had finished her sentence, both my kids were out of the door and off to Sukhi aunty’s house. By the time I managed to reach my friend’s place, her pet had already delivered 6 healthy puppies. The kids were ecstatic to see the tiny puppies and marveled at the fact that they were so tiny that they fit into the palm of Sukhi aunty’s hand. The pups looked white, minus their trademark spots.
I could see the longing in my daughter’s eyes and so could Sukhi. She didn’t say anything at the time because she knew how much I feared dogs, well what happened in the next couple of days is another story altogether 🙂
