Another hit and run


We found a liter of 5 pups on my road.

Surprising because i thought all the street babies were neutered, at least all the females and the friendly males.

So where did this batch of 5 come from, they seem to be around 2 months old, healthy and huddled together on the pavement.

I found out from the auto-drivers that a family with a GSD dog had mated with a street romeo doggie and had a liter, the family took care of the pups and vaccinated them before deserting them on the pavement and moving away with their own dog.

This morning i woke up with a queasy feeling, asked mum if we could bring the pups home, i know its difficult to find homes for pups that are 2-3 months, most successful adoptions happen when the pups area a month to forty five days of age.

But still..something made me want to bring them up.

When we went we found 2 pups injured, by a hit and run bike, 3 pups were ok and we had the fastest ever adoption, with the kind auto-men and some people i know who came forward to give the babies a better life.

But we lost one and the other is with me now, he has a broken jaw, broken nose, brain tissue damage, please please pray for him. His x-rays are taken, he is on anti-inflammatory drugs, painkillers and sedatives, we are praying for the best for him.

Have you met Coffee beans?

On my way back home after a lonng day, at the signal we saw a scrawny pup scavenge for food.

Heart wouldn’t allow us to drive away, so we picked up the little bundle, got her home, cleaned her up and gave her a hot meal.

Boy did she love it.

Coffee beans is now for adoption. She loves the company of other dogs and an occasional bird ! 😛

LOVES her food! and hates being alone for long durations!

A few nights ago, when we went to give our road dog babies their dinner, we found one of them lying motionless in pain on the road.

The watchmen told us that a school bus ran over him, after which a car climbed over him because he couldn’t move and was blocking the parking space on the road.

It was 10PM and our regular vet had closed for the day, we loaded the poor baby into the car and rushed him to critical care, they said he had a few broken bones, but only an X-RAY would depict the real picture.

He stayed the night with us, and in so much pain, no amount of sedatives and pain killers could ease the ordeal for him.

We had hope for him, just a few broken  bones we thought, and it was there that we decided he would be ours, no longer a road baby, but our own at home.

Next morning, our vet ran blood tests, Scans and X-rays, and the poor baby had a broken rib, broken femur bone, broken leg, spinal cord injury and was partially blind.

The pain was intense, letting him go was the only way to help him.

Raamanathan, as we christened him left us that afternoon, the only thing i could give him was a decent burial and a prayer that next life he comes back to me ❤  You didn’t die alone, you have a family and we will always love and remember you.

RIP

Im sorry i don’t have any happy photos of you running on the streets, but i want to post these anyways.

Toffee , anyone?


Toffee was found roaming in the midst of traffic, wearing a rope around her neck.

She is really really sweet, clearly, belonged to someone before we found her.

She had no one looking for her, so we decided to foster this sweet thing until the adoption drive.

Happy to say she  found her forever

home in the arms of Nayantara and her family and  has settled in well.

Lots of love to you Toffee girl, have a wonderful life ❤

Intuition


Dobby, my mix breed rescue baby was boarded with a dear friend who runs a homestay for pets, he got attached to Krish, another foster baby, and a week of screening calls and emails later, we found them a home, or so we thought.

Received an email from a lady, extremely interested in adopting Indian pups, she had ALL the right answers, she was patient with my probing, the house visit etc.

So one saturday off we went babies in hand to drop them off to her place.  Everything was good, she had a fair amount of space for the babies to run and play, good food, all the essentials.

Something just bothered me about the whole thing, but i couldn’t figure out what!

We left there, promising to come back soon.

This lady kept in touch with us, posted photo updates on FB, but i still wasn’t satisfied.

On instinct we made a surprise visit the following friday and to my shock and disgust, pups were chained to a door, no water, no food, sleeping on their urine, and Dobby the smaller guy, was starving, hadn’t eaten in days and turned anemic!!

We rushed them out of there, to our vet, who had to treat their skin (dog’s skin gets urine rash when they roll on their pee) and they hungrily ate food and collapsed in our arms.

They are back in their foster home, safe and sound, a bit shaken up, but they are recovering.

I learnt an important lesson, instinct, gut feeling, intuition, whatever you call it, LISTEN TO IT!

I’ve attached a photo of the babies as we found them on the surprise visit.

RAIN!


Its been raining a lot in Chennai.

The weathers wonderful, but i am worried for my babies on the street.

Woke up to frantic phone call yesterday morning about a doggie crying all night in an empty plot, she had fallen into a deep pit and the pit filled up with rain water 😦 she stood there the entire night.

When i got there, they were afraid to pull her out cuz she was aggressive. Needless to say, Wilma (as i have now named her) allowed us to pull her out by grasping her neck , it wasn’t pleasant, but she came out!

Then the lady had a bunch of biscuits and ran off to find her pups. The next challenge being, finding them homes and spaying ol Wilma.

Here are some snaps

Isn’t she pretty? And thats “Friend and Puppy” who are sharing biscuits with her. They stay a little away from my street babies but are always happy to share a meal  🙂

Meet Dobby


Tired and scared, we found a pedigreed pup running on the streets last night, he was chased away by the watchmen of palatial mansions and finally settled to rummage in the community garbage bin when we picked him up.

It was almost 10pm when we got him and he just had to get to safety, there was no way a pup who was once fed and sheltered could survive on the streets. 

He looks like a doberman/ coonhound mix pup and totally terrified of humans.

He hungrily ate the chicken cooked at home for our dogs and slept in bursts, howling whenever i left him alone.

The next adoption drive is at the end of this month, send good thoughts for little Dobby please 🙂

We hope he gets a wonderful home and forgets his past 🙂
