Often I wonder, how it would be responsible for another life? How will it ever affect my life? Well, I recently adopted this cute infant whom I initially named Floyd. Later, discovering the fact that she is a girl…I was even more excited to have her and named her Floydein instead. It’s been about a week that I have started keeping her in my dorm and oh boy…she is beautiful. I am so excited to have her with her at all times.
So here the idea struck me to actually starting blogging about it. It can do wonders for me as well as all those who will be acutally willing to adopt a dog. It’s the best thing you can do to the world as well as for yourself. Within the first few days of keeping her, I have changed…for the better. The feeling of concious happiness has actually taken toll on me and my anxiety issues have been much better. Before I got her, I was quite fearful and nervous that it might really hard keeping her and I would end up making a mess. But, it ended up to be the opposite. Her growth has been optimal, her fur has been better since the day I bought her and also she js getting prettier and prettier day by day.
WHY I DID IT?
Adopting a pet is just like adopting a child. They need the same love and care that they deserve. Infact, anyone can be turned right if they are rightly loved. So why did I do it? I did this for the love of it. Intially, it really was hard to manage the poop and the pee but I guess it’s human to be human. It’s a noble cause to adopt. Also, it’s cool. Heh! Sometimes, I literally forgot that I was in the company of ‘Floydein’ but she constantly reminds me that by licking my feet and growling at night. But that was the first few days and what happened the next few days made it quite relaxing. She has found her poop spot and also she has adjusted to my routine so that we both sleep peacefully. Phew! Make sure the first thing you do when you adopt a pet is to get them vaccinated and also yourself. Feeding them at the right time and making sure they don’t overeat must be a note to self.
She’s adorable when she’s sleeping…
Coming to her features, she is an Indian “pariah” breed. Normally, people would call them stray but actually these are the “real” dogs. They have bred, sustained the environmental conditions and can survive under any conditions. Also, they require low maintenance, are resistant to infections that other breeds and have a real good I.Q. But, these are all just facts and I would encourage you to adopt one not because of these facts but because of the love you’re willing to share with them. They can be well trained and the best part is – THEY LOVE YOU BACK!
The joy you get to raise someone is priceless. It literally marks the real you.
