Kuchkuch(as my m-i-l called her affectionately), this sweet little mumma of three who lived on my street, crossed over the rainbow bridge the day before yest. she was such a loving, gentle dog..had her litter when she was less than a year old which is still considered puppy age..but such a good mother that she never accepted food without first letting her pups eat to their heart's content. eventually two of her three pups couldn't make it beyond 3 months of age.. only one pup and her mom were now left. i was scared of her fate if she was to be left out on the streets to fend for herself.. she was so tiny, so frail that it didn't seem likely that she would survive another childbirth. so i decided to take her (and one of my own gsds) to an animal birth control camp for sterilization. it is supposed to be a routine procedure, and not life threatening at all, which is why i was so sure of it that i took my own dog also along with her.
the day after the surgery i brought her home with me..she stayed with us for a day and a half..but by the next afternoon she couldn't pull through the post op and she passed away peacefully at our house. it just ripped a hole through my heart. and now that she is gone, i just wish i could undo it all.
we buried her underneath a cherry tree in our compound so we can remember her everyday with the same love and affection that she taught me. she showed me unconditional love and trusted me with herself.. and even though i know my only intention was to take care of her, i ended up doing quite the opposite in effect..and no matter what anyone says, it's something i'm going to have to live with for the rest of my life. only hope now is to try and make her pup's life better by trying to get her adopted in a loving forever home. i would take her in but already having 4 large gsds makes it impossible without compromising with the pups safety.
so, please do spread the word and let me know if there's anyone willing to adopt a very friendly indie pup of 4 months in allahabad.
run free my sweet little chhoti, enjoy the sunshine and i'll meet you at the rainbow bridge someday.
Exactly 10 years ago on this day my life turned around when @kkv013 walked in. right from teenage puppy love that involved bunking classes just to be able to meet & talking over landline till the cows came home (we bought something called v****n phones back in the day in pairs for free calling😂), coffee dates at friends cafe, secretly making hand made cards for birthdays & anniversaries...it feels like we've come such a long way figuring out life, faltering along the way & picking each other up, taking major decisions... just growing up together as two individuals that we weren't when we first met. today makes it 10 years of our journey together, & 6 months to shaadi-ing together & i can't help but keep falling for you every single day!
