A year ago a strange puppy came in our vicinity, looking like a Labrador but was not one. On my daily walk with my dog, the only thing I used to do is feed him some packets of biscuits or maybe some fresh milk. Due to my certain limitations, I could only feed him once. As this daily association of mine with him gradually increased, making an irresistible bond. And the most important part was that I named him “Creamy“.
He grew up fast and when he reached his fully grown size he sort of looked like the “Scooby” from the famous cartoon series, so most of the other people in the vicinity renamed him “Scooby” but for me, he was still Creamy.
A few months later a dog gave birth to a litter of pups and at the same Creamy started staying out of my front door, and guess what Creamy did with the litter of pups? He took real care of them by playing with them, feeding those puppies when we missed out giving food on time, and yes, the most important part was that he communicated with them in order to stay at a particular location so have an eye on them or letting us do so.
This became a daily routine for him, for puppies and surely for us too. So eventually, we became pet parents of 6 dogs and trust me it was not really easy to take care of so many dogs as the people in the vicinity tried to object with silly reasons as not to feed them or take care of but Creamy was our perfect helping hand for us.
This routine was carried on for months but lately, Creamy have started coming home less frequently and we were perturbed by this thing, so the search started as to where he usually started to live. A day ago we came to know where he was, he was taking care of the new litter of pups with the same extent of affection and love. But at the same time, his affection for me had not reduced even a bit, because when I called his name out he gave a break to those puppies and came along with me and later home and all the way back home he walked really close to me. He came home, spent a good time with me and family, of course, he played with puppies in the vicinity too and after filling his stomach completely he left to take care of the puppies he is with these days.
By now, you must be thinking why I am telling you this whole story. It’s because it gives out a lovely message that is, “People who realise what loneliness is, are always ready to be there for others!” And this message actually is not applicable to humans only, it’s applicable to all animals as well.
