  1. I repent not having read your posts from April 1. But I made up by reading all your posts now. I just couldn’t help notice the coincidences with Sparky and Cookie (the dalmatian of my home). She is 2 years old now but entered our lives as a puppy in Dec 2012 just before Christmas and has been a darling ever since. My mom (just like you) was apprehensive of dogs and now she is the first one to stroke or play with Cookie. 🙂 Looking forward to your posts on Sparky and wishing her a speedy recovery.

    • Thanks a ton for making the effort to read all my posts. I love the name, Cookie, share her pic with me please 🙂 Sparky is a sweetheart with a will to survive and be with us, because she knows I won’t be able to handle her going away.

  2. I think Sparky loved you in that moment. But the line that caught my attention was – I realized that sometimes the happiness of those we love is more important than self-preservation – how perfectly put.

  3. You made the right decision 🙂 Your story reminded me of Hachiko’s story where the professor’s wife was initially reluctant to let the pup stay at home and gradually she saw how her husband had grown to love Hachiko. Waiting to read more 🙂

    • Prasanna, I love Hachiko’s story, cried so much while watching the movie.I fell in love with my Sparky when I picked her up for the first time and she licked my hand.

    Aww! So sweet. Glad you gave in to the happiness of your children and let them have Sparky! Liked the way you have written this chapter! Very evocative 🙂
