Rantings of a Pet'less' person (Sigh!)


This is a sign one would find outside my Pet-less home....


Yes yes.... My house is full of pet haters... No we're not inhumane... not me anyway... i have been trying to get a pet (very unsuccessfully) for the past 11 years... yes.. a record... that saga has yet to end... (sob!sob!).... Getting back to the subject... yes... the inhabitants of my home say and i quote "find it difficult to take care of one mongrel" (another name for me, of course) so they feel they don't have the time for another... but fail to realize that i too need one to keep me occupied... And so, i remain pet'less'... not that i've never had pets before.. i've had selfish gold fish and guppies that only eat and swim around the whole day.... and fail to spend time wit me... till i put in a couple of fighter fish into d tank and taught them a lesson (kidding... i'm already being haunted by the ghosts of a couple of those gold fish).... but what i've wanted since i can remember is a dog... i used to watch movies like 'lassie' and 'yeller'... fell in love with dogs.... and from there started the relentless saga of begging my dad and anyone else i could find for a puppy... especially a Golden Retriever... yes... i wanted it real bad... went to the extent of making my room a 'doggy' one... had around 100 posters of them (until a certain hag tore them apart to paint the room!!!) in ma room... so atleast i could look at them and feel like i have a dog... yes was desperate... but i haven't yet succeeded have i??
There's the dog i'll never have (yet)


I came to realise i'll never have a pet in my childhood (and teenage-hood) when a little kitten visited us couple of months back... it made its home in the engine of my dads car (much to his amusement)... and though, knowing the animal activist in me, he let me feed it, he didn't let me pet it or give it a temporary home even.... sad sad!!! ... and then the kitty went away :( and to this day i'm trying to find it back (again unsuccessfully)....

This has been going on.... with my dad promising to get me a pup if i scored well... and almost always he would just be kidding... one day... i realised this is not going to happen until i start earning myself... and i decided to challenge my insensitive father...

I told him... "when i earn, i'm going to get 10 dogs and make them stand in front of you and i'm going to make a zoo out of this house... then lets see what you do..."... yes i intend to do it also... lol... to the utter horror of my dad....

Having said that i'm happy to conclude that my dad is still haunted by the image i put forth to him few months back and has declared that he'll move out of the house if that happens... all the more space for me to get more dogs.... don't you think so?!? ;)

My home in another 6 years or so shall host this sign :)
