My Kids’ First Birthday

Recently I celebrated my kids’ first birthday. It was on April 24; yes they share their birthday with Sachin Tendulkar. It also happens to be the death day of the multi millionaire Baba Sathya Sai. Whatever that means – As a fond mother, I have great hopes of them, for more reasons that their internationally acknowledged birthday. Just to get the record straight – April 24, 2010 was the day I found two sad little puppies sleeping right in the middle of the driveway of a petrol pump. They were born in a litter of ten, and completely infested with fleas. I found their sickly mother harried by the other pups – and in an impulse, brought them home. They were about three weeks old then, and would probably not have survived much beyond. Today, Nenny and Pony are two lovely dogs and I am so proud of them. I’ll post some of their pictures here. For those reading this post, I’d say – Please adopt stray animals instead of paying premium amounts for pedigreed ones. You don’t need to do it from impulse. But if you want an animal to love, please give that love to one that needs it. And now, the pictures!

And finally, here goes some of their photographs from a year back. I keep looking at these over and over!

Now I know that what they say about loving animals is true. Until you have loved one, a part of you remains unawakened.

      Thank you for asking. My dogs are two years old now and doing well. We were too overwhelmed with work and other stuff, so although we celebrated their birthday and had a small photoshoot, I haven’t been able to work on the photos and post them here. I’m so happy that you’ve turned up to ask! 🙂
      I’ve been going through your blog now, and I’m truly impressed. Never thought one could do so much with collages. All the best to you too.
