Once upon a time, I used to be petrified of dogs. So the first time I met Puggy, I remember being frozen in one spot, unable to move and scared at how excited he was. He ran all around me, wagging his tail and trying to lick me. He gets super excited at the sight of anybody new in the household.
Eventually, I started looking forward to that familiar excitement. I looked forward to the warm welcome and those adorable eyes. He sits down calmly after the first few minutes of jumping around. There was a day he fell asleep on my lap. There was one sleepover where he kept licking my ear while I tried to sleep. He is one of those, who never got enough of me and would show equal enthusiasm every time I visited Toshani’s place.
Toshani, one of my close friends, is the “mom” of Sparky (that’s officially his name, but we end up calling him a variety of names). From being someone who was very scared of dogs, I became a dog lover. I learnt how to pick him up in my arms alone too!
Toshani even told me of a day when he got angry at her after we left thinking she’d sent us away. Puggy’s love for us is literally unconditional. You cannot be mad at it for too long. You’ll always give in to those loving eyes. He will never expect anything from you except a little bit of love and affection.
You tickle him a little behind the ears, and he’ll fall asleep in your lap.
Happiness, is a warm pug.
