There was this picture of a pretty lady in one of the newspapers I read where she is seen walking her dog and underneath was the caption ‘DOG’S LIFE? When I read on I came to know a lot of things about a dog’s life—for instance how many hours of cuddles the pets get from their owners, the number of bowls of water these canines drink and how the lucky ones will have 25 all –expenses paid holidays –seven in ten getting two a year. These are the statistics drawn from a survey conducted in Britain.
I feel there is not a day far of when a similar survey is conducted to find out how many in our country own pet dogs and the time spent in pampering them and preferring to ‘talk’ to them instead of with fellow human beings. I have already noticed the trend amongst pet owners in Chennai whose priorities are visibly changing, especially amongst the cynical ones who believe ‘all is right about themselves and their pets and everything is wrong with the world of humans.’
