Snap from an Old Album- Me with Kitty        

I am fond of canines since my childhood
days and had reared two of them independently in my student life, the first one
been the Dachshund breed, “Kitty,” very meek n shy as her name & the next Cross
Alsatian, “Beauty”,  a mischievous one
& or it can be said not so obedient as Kitty. I adored them and my free
time went off with them in rearing& playing with them. I loved their company;
I was fonder of my dogs than my siblings.
Losing them was a setback for me; though
they parted after living for whole life span nearly twelve years but the pain
of parting I felt the most because I was very much attached with them. At that
time I felt as if I had a lost a part of me and with time, the gap filled up
but I vowed not to keep pets anymore. It’s difficult to detach with the attachments.
I finished off with my studies and the time arrived to get hitched.
I moved into a new family with new set
of people & environment. To my surprise, even my hubby was a dog lover. It
seemed to be a coincidence and he insisted that we keep pets. He was well
acquainted with my liking’s for dogs. Initially, I turned down the offer on some flimsy grounds and ensured that we will get them in near future when we move to
a bigger house. In initial days of marriage, I was keener on spending time with
my hubby and fulfilling the dreams that I had chased for this auspicious days
of my life. Everyone in their prime time of youth has numerous dreams stored
for this day and I wished to live for them.
In few years we were blessed with two
cute fantastico sons, who kept me
occupied for maximum hours of my life. To my utter surprise when they were
playschool goers, they started insisting on getting pet for the family and that
too a dog. I came to the conclusion that we were a family of pet lovers and
more so we all had inkling for a dog & I related the incident with my
father who was a Vet. Doctor so genetic factor ruled in the family. There was
an impact in our genes. It would often
amuse me & a smile pursed on my lips with this weird thought that haunted
my mind off & on.
The demand for keeping dog grew more
intense on me with passing time. All three pestered me to get one at that very
moment, I surfaced as the villain. Actually at that very moment, I was not keen
to get one, been aware of the demands of keeping a pet. I had reared them so I
well knew the challenges that we are fraught with, in day to day life. I had a
liking but I was well aware with the cumbersome routine of keeping a pet. I was
the only one, who had to manage whole family, the house, hubby who was mostly
on tours because of official assignments, my over demanding kids, I insist on
over because they were still very young and couldn’t manage a thing without me.
With these three, I was already over occupied and rarely got a chance for
myself. I evaded till I could manage.
