My name is J.J.Doggy (my initials stand for Jacinth & Jeyakumar). I have a beautiful family which consists of dadda, mumma, akka (elder sister), cat sister and grandma. My akka has recently started a blog and she wanted me to share my life story with you all.
Before I became a part of this beautiful family, I was living on the streets for one year. As I was a little puppy, I started wandering through the streets. I was starving and would eat food from bins. It was hard to get food as I was attacked by grown up dogs on the street. It was a hot day and I entered into a street with trees and beautiful houses. I was searching for food in the neighbourhood and that’s when my akka saw me. She and her family were kind enough to feed me with milk and bread. They couldn’t take me home because they already had 5 to 6 cats. Few other people of the neighbourhood also started feeding me.
Do you think my life got easier then? No, definitely no. Because there were others who did not like dogs and were bothered about my presence on the street. They would beat, chase me away and pour water on me. Whenever I wasn’t in the street, my dadda would search me on the neighbourhood and feed me with biscuits. That’s when I started liking him.
My family had gone to Chennai for a month for my akka’s college admission. I gave birth to three lovely puppies. If my family would’ve been with me, they could’ve seen my kids. But before they came, the neighbourhood people contacted the municipality office to take away my puppies. That was the most horrible day in my life. I couldn’t stop them from taking away my puppies. All I could do was plead and cry. But how do humans understand it? They find it as ‘barking’.
As soon as my family knew about this, they spayed me and took inside their house. I officially became a member of their house. Since then, the neighbourhood became affectionate to me as I wouldn’t give birth to any more puppies. I have a friend named ‘Scooby’, who is hyper active. My other friend was ‘Pappu’, who passed away few years back.
I feel so happy and blessed today. But what makes me sad, is the thought of so many other stray dogs living in the streets with no food and shelter. I wish every home adopts a stray dog and make their life better. Will you please adopt a stray dog?
