We were all thrilled to discover that there were nine puppies on the lane where we live. Actually you only see five in Jesse’s puppy picture. We have enjoyed petting and holding the babies, and several students wanted to adopt one, which is out of the question. We all shudder when the puppies are near the oncoming cars or motor bikes. I am not a Darwinist but life on the street for puppies, and I dare say this is “survival of the fittest!” People up and down the lane have been giving the poor haggard mama milk to help her produce more for her babies. This is the India way. . . . .
Yesterday I was across the big road and there was the mama and one of the babies! My hands were full, as I was all by myself. If I could I would have carried the baby back across the busy street. When I neared the place where the puppies stay under a car, I saw the mama but no baby near her. Oh dear , I thought they are all gone now and she is sad and of course completely worn out. . . .
Today, we were at the Gandhi Ashram and when we neared home, we were met with this picture. Mama and according to Cassie, all nine puppies are accounted for, safe , and well cared for.
All is right with the world in Amdavad, India. . . . .Incredible India!
