The flying dog....

Its a really cute picture ain't it... yes.. thats exactly how my friends dachshund pup looked when she got it 4 years ago... and it frightened the life out of another friend of mine who's not too fond of dogs... This little one, Tuffy, has always been an energetic little thing... running around to and fro... trying to bite everyone everywhere (i'm not kidding!!), licking people it liked; all over (not kidding about this either). Yes, that's Tuffy the Great.... when i was in school.... and when we left to college and my friend left to the hostel... i didn't see him at all!!

Suddenly last night, i found myself at that friends place... and guess who greeted me at the door?!? That adorable little (big for its size actually) dog.. which i once knew as a lil pup... he had grown two fold.. I have a starting problem with dogs... mostly i love them to death and for the past 12 years i've been begging my dad to let me have one... but somehow unless the dog seems friendly right away... i get phobic and panicky... due to excessive dreams about dog bites (yes yes, i know i'm crazy... again putting myself down... arrgghh!!! i must stop this!) ...
Anyway... my now pal Tuffy was sp impatient for my friend to open the front door.. that when she actually opened it he launched himself on her.... and after alot of mushy licking and loving... he turned his attention to the newcomer.... me (gulp!)



As i stood petrified... the cute (yes, even when i was scared i thought the dog was cute.. WIERD!)... DOG came smelling my foot.. and after a serious licking of my toe... put his front paws on my jeans... which meant he was ready to be petter (by me! oh what an honour!)... and i did... i played with him for a while... following which his front paws on my jeans were tickling me and i was afraid i'd fall right on him.. squishing him in the process (i'm not all that light u know :) ) My friend then somehow quietened the hyper-active flying dog (i'm not kidding... he was in the air all the time!!) and made him sit...

We sat on the sofa and he put his paws on the sofa and looked at me with those ever cute doggie blue eyes and i fell in love with the lil fella... i cuddled him for a while following which my tired hands could not cuddle him anymore.. he rested on the ground.. his head on my feet.... his fur feeling like velvet... oh how beautiful it would be like to own a dog!!! :(

Ah!! but at last.... time does not stand still and i had to leave... after taking him for a short walk (which meant taking him out to piss... with him walking me instead of the other way round!)... And as i left.. i promised myself i'd turn my house into a living zoo (of tame animals of course!) once i start earning.. in order to quench my thirst for dogs, kittens, birds, 'bunny wabbits' (tweetie style) and hamsters... (I will not grow fish.. because i still feel guilty for not taking proper care of them when i had'em :( )...

Then like Gerald Durell 's book "My family and other animals"... i shall continue with a sequel titled; "My 'family' and the rest of the zoo" (thank god my dad doesn't read my blog!).
