    DEAR PET LOVERS,

    It is not my fault that I was born a dog and that too as a bitch at that. It is not my fault that I can become a mother at a very young age as compared to humans but then my life span is also shorter than humans. It is not my fault that I give birth to half a dozen pups. It is not my fault that I am a street dog and that too in metros. It is not my fault that I am impregnated by another street dog and that too, by an ugly snob.

    Then why these so-called humans are after me and my fellow sisters? They just pick us up along with our family, dump in a truck and put us to sleep. They say we are a menace to society. They say we react and even bite when we are harassed. Is it wrong to fight in self-defense?

    No such discrimination existed in the beginning. All lived in harmony. Our brothers and sisters in the wild do not face such treatment.

    I accuse you of cruelty. I accuse you of bias when you make some as pets and annihilate some as a menace.

    I accuse you of gender bias as is prevalent in humans.

    (She was still looking at me with expectations, when MCD guys were dumping her in the truck, squeaking and asking for help. I could read her eyes).

    I am happy to announce that putting a dog "to sleep"(What a gruesome expression conferring respectability on murder) is no longer allowed in Delhi and most parts of IndiaDogs are supposed to be taken for vaccination and spaying and dropped back in their familiar territory. Otherwise you'll have animal lovers will be up in arms. I should know, I have four dogs at home, all females.

    I had a bunch of street beauties while growing up, it was a family of dogs (and also a cat who was a gangsta) What they contributed to my memories is what I can not say in words. All the things I experience with them were a prize as each. They would go for a fun family fight with other dogs once in a while; even the tiny little puppies :nut:! with their mothers and uncles.
    I have few photos of them and they will live as long I do :touched:

    I have got a dog now, and I love him to bits.

    Dear Shri Balajee,
    That is quite encouraging, though more out of fear of outrage by activists ('Andolanjivies' -as per our dear PM) than by love for them. We too have a female dog at home, vaccinated, against her wish, of course. I have seen pet dogs abandoned by their 'proud' owners, not only in Delhi but in USA also. There could be any number of reasons. These dogs are put to rest or die of hunger because they no longer do no know how to fend or fight for food.
    There is no clear answer-to be or not to be.

    Dogs are loving, pets or not. All they need food on time and a little scratching under the neck. In our house, she is friends with all but misses only the my daughter like a child missing her mother.
    In our housing complex in Delhi, street dogs were whisked away by the security guards and it became an issue for some animal lovers residing there.
    It will be a good idea to have animal homes for street dogs.

    They have the most unfortunate time. I hope that we'll create a better world for them.
