The picture you see here is when my papa held me in his palm for the first time. Guess why? Mamma wanted to take a picture to let the world know about my size, I don’t know what pleasure does she derive out of taking my pictures generally also – even now after 5.5 years!!! It was the first time papa was holding me, and I was not too sure if he knew how to hold me. I was so afraid I tell you and kept looking down to the floor which probably to me was similar to you people looking down from at least the 3rd floor of an apartment building. To give you an idea of my size now that my sweet mamma has made it public by posting this picture, I used to weigh 1.5 kgs, and was about 15 cms high from the ground. My papa was very careful I tell you, but I had my worries. After a while when the photography session was over, I looked at my papa and felt nice. He seemed to be very caring and I knew I was in safe hands. He used to hold me for hours together and I would feel very nice and warm, I never felt uneasy and would love to stay in his arms how much ever long he wanted to hold me. I started growing up and it was difficult for papa to hold me for such long time, but even now he does hold me and whenever he holds me I get the same feeling as I got the first time. Somehow, I cannot settle like that in mamma’s arms. May be the size in proportion of her hands, my length etc. doesn’t match.

I was 31 days old. I realized someone held me taking me away from my mother (biological) and put me in a van. Then the van started moving and it kept moving for a few hours. I didn’t know where I was going. The van stopped and they took me to a shop, it was a pet shop. I spent a few minutes there moving around the shop, there were 2 other puppies like me there, of other breeds. They were also like me, they also didn’t know what was happening with them. But we became good friends in those few minutes. We started playing and I overheard the conversation of the shopkeeper, he was telling someone in Hindi over phone, “madam, aapka bachcha aa gaya hai (madam, your kid has come), aap aake dekh lo (please come over and check)”. By checking, he means if they come and don’t like me for any reason, they may not take me and the shopkeeper has to get another puppy from the breeder. They also need to make sure that I am healthy by showing me to the vet before handing me to the new owners. There were 3 of us so I hardly understood which puppy he was talking about. I was happy playing with my new friends. In another hour or so, a couple came to the shop along with an aged lady and another young man (they were mother and son). The shopkeeper showed me to them and said, “this is your kid, you can check”. The lady took me in her arms and said, “yeh toh bohat cute hai!? (this one is so cute!?)”. The husband in the couple laughed aloud and said in astonishment, “this is it?”.
I know I was very small in size; but every puppy is, come on! What else did he expect I don’t know!
The couple was the one to adopt me I figured out. The wife in the couple then took me in her palm (I was so small I could fit in her one palm), and looked me with various expressions. I could not look her in her eyes because I was afraid, she was not holding me properly also so I was afraid she would drop me! They took me to the vet and the vet approved saying I was a healthy pup – they see the palms of the puppy and if they are broad enough along with the correct features of a breed, it is supposed to be healthy.
She was my mother and the gentleman who laughed at my size was my father – little did I know that they would become the best two people of my life going forward!

Uff!!! Finally here I am. My mother finally got a chance to take my website live! I have been telling her to start this site for such a long time now but she could not do till now. I love her so much, she is very hard-working. Today was a usual day for me, except that my mamma had to leave a bit early and so she did not have time to play with me in the morning. But still she did, she takes time out for me as much as she can. Today she gave me a big egg to eat, oh my God I love eggs! In the evening she also gave me paneer, though it is my usual diet, today the paneer tasted special. I met my friends also after a long time, they are all street dogs and they feel very lonely especially in the cold. My mamma makes it a point that she feeds them biscuits, I like it when they eat. See you for now, stay tuned to hear more and more from me!
Thanks for taking time out to hear from me – Bye for now.
