Our tiny weenie little pupster of a boy who happened to come into this world what seems like just yesterday turns seven today!
'I can't wait to be seven' is what he said on the phone excitedly the day before!
'Why? What's going to change once you are seven?', Mummy asked.
'My best friend is already seven. I want to catch up', he told her.
It's amazing how they grow up so fast. Ricky, at seven is an extremely sensitive,compassionate, polite and intelligent little man. Hardly ever does he forget to ask after Sheru (our colony dog), the two girls at the gate and every other street pup that he had met while visiting us. He worries about Buddy's allergies, why Ginger looks sad in most of the pictures and loves to re-tell Shadow's story as a street pup time and again!
He wanted a dog for his birthday. But that isn't happening yet. So we got him what was second on his list (from Christmas! )- a bicycle. He's not as happy but happy enough, if you get our drift! It'll have to do for now.
Happy Yappy Barkday, dear little boy!!
(He doesn't like to be called little!!)
The world could do with more souls like you who we believe will make a difference.
Ginger, Buddy and Shadow
