How I started liking Puppies?

I never ever knew that I would ever fall in love with puppies  soo…. much…

It all started a long way back when we settled in Bangalore. I was just 7 years old then. We lived in an apartment over there where pets were allowed. I got many good friends in this apartment and I got along with them well.

I met him….

One day while playing with my friends they asked me if I wanted to see something that would surprise me.

“Of course…Yes!!” I replied.

They took me to Charlie he was too handsome and soo adorable…his large beautiful twinkling eyes attracted me so badly that I wanted to touch him. He was a golden retriever puppy. I was very curious in touching him. My friends just kept on pampering and carrying that cute little puppy, that very moment I just thought to myself how could god create such a startling and amazing creature in this world!.

The most amazing moment…

At the very first moment, I found it really difficult and scary to touch Charlie because I was going to touch a dog, a puppy for the first time in my life. But in few minutes I got quite close to him and I ran my fingers through his soft fluffy velvet like hair and I could feel the warmth of his body between my fingers through his fur. I could feel his body panting, while my palm played through his fur.

This was my first touch on a dog. The feel of touch from this loving creature amused me….

Charlie kept on wagging his tail so fast that I could feel his love passing to me through the mild breeze from his tail.

When I got back home, I had a lot of exciting incidents to share with my parents. I started saying a lot about Charlie, I thought they would give me a positive response when I told about Charlie, but they gave me a totally unexpected response. They told me that I shouldn’t touch dogs or puppies new to me. I felt bad but realised that they advised me because they care for me a lot.

He surely did steal my heart because the time when I had the last touch through his silky and soft golden fur tears ran down my cheeks…

A fairy godmother was fulfilling my wish…!

The very next day my friends again went over and started pampering Charlie, I couldn’t resist myself. Those sparkling eyes and his loving wagging tail made me go to him again. I slowly walked towards him and pampered him, I forgot about the warning and things that was given to me by my parents. I asked the owner of the dog whether Charlie was safe to play with?  She just gave me a stare and asked why are you asking me this?  I told her the reason, she was like Charlie is safe and you can play with him how much ever you want. That sentence she told me sounded like a fairy godmother fulfilling my wish I was so happy.

I immediately went home and told my parents that Charlie is safe to play. They were unwillingly   nodding their heads…and I could make out from their gesture that they were not happy with this idea. I knew that they were concerned of my safety, after all which parent is not concerned of their child’s safety!

During vacations, I used to feel bored, but then somewhere in my mind I had an excitement that I could play with Charlie when he comes down for his evening walk.

As years passed by, I saw Charlie growing up really big.

But then the time came……where I had to bid goodbye to him. We had to leave Bangalore and shift to our hometown. The time when we were leaving Bangalore Charlie was 5 years old and his age shows the number of years we spent in Bangalore…and those beautiful moments I had in my life.

He surely did steal my heart because the time when I had the last touch through his silky and soft golden fur tears ran down my cheeks…
