Here in Pune, April is the hottest month of the year & its been sweltering. After our early morning walk, play etc, by 8am Magic & Mia will have some light soup, after that they usually find their own cool, comfy corners & sleep it out till evening.
In the mean time we’ve moved houses & one of our real worries was how they will adjust to the new environs, with new street dogs to deal with, new walking paths etc. All my worries were laid to rest during our first walk itself when i realised that Magic isn’t pulling on the leash. Any little bit of aggressive intent by a couple of street dogs diminished by day two, now many street dogs come up to us in a friendly way, some even wanting to play with us……. its such a relief to me & its nice to see both M & M happy & relaxed.
On the other hand it’s also nice to see the street dogs looked after by people. We share our apartment block with one such champion who looks after every canine & feline in our street. (We also share our apartment blocks with extreme dog haters also……). After staying all this while in an area where one had to handle different packs of street dogs at every 100 mtrs, this has been a breath of fresh air. Sometimes during our walk there is one dog who actually walks with us !! Magic, of course has a his own charisma, he has already walked into the hearts of few people & he continues to bring-in people into our lives.
The icing in the cake was when we discovered an enclosed playing field where we can leave both M & M off the leash for sometime to run in full throttle, to chase, to play & to explore on their own. Even just 15 mts of sprint makes a world of difference to their well-being
Peace & Love
