May you be blessed with the true spirit of Christmas.
Love Brownie Roo and Family.
As an 18-year-old he had stoned and clubbed to death two dogs he found engaged in mating. He then hung their carcasses from a tree. That's when his personal suffering began.
"After that my legs and hands got paralyzed and I lost hearing in one ear," Kumar told the Hindustan Times newspaper. Kumar, now 33 and living in the southern Indian district of Sivaganga, could no longer take the physical pain of the "dog curse," so he sought the advice of an astrologer.
Her cure for his maladies? "Marry a dog." Which is just what Kumar did on Sunday.
In a ceremony befitting a beautiful Indian bride, the bitch, a former 10-year-old stray named "Selvi," was bathed and dressed in a ceremonial orange sari with a garland of flowers adorning her neck. She was then brought to the temple in Tamil Nadu to be presented to Kumar by members of his family.
Kumar, sitting beside his bride, recited his marriage vows, declaring, "I will take care of it until its death." Then, the "couple" was declared married.
Deeply superstitious people in rural India sometimes organize weddings to dogs and other animals, believing it can ward off certain curses.
The Hindustan Times reported Kumar's family hosted a feast — while Selvi dined on a bun.
I spied these SMSes on Sharon's Phone.
"She squealed while scratching her ear again. Such a nice sound but hope she doesn't go deaf!" 4 Oct 2007 (This was because Karen cleaned out my ears pretty well. She may have hit a sore spot. I still love her lots.)
"Babee, I am amazed at the amount of shit and pee that small canine stomach can contain. It seems that there are no other ogans in there! Amazing!" 10 Oct 2007
"Babee, she shat three times, she has a mutant stomach." 12 Oct 2007
Sorry all, I have been a very busy doggy...busy taking care of the house and Sharon and Jules. They have been very tired with work and school.
They even forgot to bathe me for 5 weeks! Hahahaha, Whoppeeeeeee!
Sharon always tells me she is working hard so that she can give me a better life. But I like my life the way it is now...a much loved brown doggy doesn't need much money. I am happiest when I am sleeping on the bed with them.
She also tells me that she can probably never give me my very own garden, but what the heck, I have the whole world out there to pee and poop in, who needs her own garden?
I just want them to spend more time with me. Don't they know that already?
Ages ago, Fei started a pledge which we joined.
So that's why I was such a busy doggie!
So not only do I NOT get enough space on my bed, I also have to humour my humans when they take photos of me. I didn't even realise this photo was taken till I saw Sharon downloading it on the laptop! Wonder what else is in store for lil ole me?
"When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."
