He Changed it All...


Underweight-weighing just 3 kilos, petite and little unsure of his new family, sitting on the corner most side of the car, he made an entering into our lives. Oreo, our first pet ever changed all of us. Everyone was against my brother in law's decision to get a pet but all of that changed.From my sister who never wanted a pet in home to my Dad who has never been close to any Dog for that matter! Even when I came back from Hyderabad, my first reaction was to threaten my family that I will leave the house unless they get him out of the home! (Oh yes, if you are thinking- let me tell you - threatening people is my favorite pass time!) But he changed even 'me'!

It might be usual for you all but for a family like ours who have always been indifferent to pets if not anti, it is nothing less than a miracle. With his cute little tail that wags every time you come in front of him, the excitement with which he waits for you to return home, the innocence with which he thinks we can play with him ALL day and night, the curiosity with which he sits by your side and look at your fingers and the keyboard when you work on your laptop or play on your phone, he has just made all of us fall in love with him. From my Dad trying to play with him in his own unique ways and justifying his biting to my sister who can actually 'kill' you if you ever dare to call him a dog to my brother who just can’t live without him to my mother who, if asked for her choice would stop us from going out EVER because Oreo ‘becomes sad’ if alone at home, he is pampered in all the ways possible.

Knowing his privileged position at the home, he does misuse it sometimes. Expecting to be fed on the sofa where he lies comfortably or to be massaged every now and then or to be given a place on the bed exactly where you are sitting! And the greatest of all he know how to make you dance around him. He will look at you with those innocent eyes or will just lick your hand after chewing you favorite stuff,. He knows when to show his love! And then we also end up deciding that our Oreo is worth more than any other thing in the world!(yes that how we have spoilt our dog!)

Thats a different thing that he has treated entire sofa as its chewing stick. He has torn most of the cushions at home, carpet and our clothes (mostly new ones!!). But if you closely notice our beloved Dog you will see that he firmly believes in equality. Be it a branded jeans or a road side pajama, be it expensive showcase or something you have created on your own, he treats all of then equally and consider of equal worth for chewing them off. Yes..that hows great our new member is..and we never get tired of praising him or finding as many ‘virtues’ as we can!
