I have my own theory about pets, it is a karmic account that needs to be settled. Some people have a natural inclination of keeping pets and I have heard so many stories where it has been sheer providence that a pet has made way into their lives. Take my adorable dollar for instance . I was with a friend one day who kept going on and on about this adorable little puppy that she had encountered at the vet . It so happened that we had to go back to vet on the same day and that’s when I saw this cute cuddly thing so tiny & lost in this big bad world , i just couldn’t get my eyes off him . Before I knew it dollar was an integral part of our home and life and it is now inconceivable for me to think about my house without picturing him moving around majestically in it.
Bagheera is like my unplanned child. Living in Mumbai one pet per family is as far as it goes. One afternoon I popped in at a friend’s and to my surprise this notorious pup just wouldn’t stop circling me till I was exhausted. This tiny bundle of endless energy was relentless that day . So to say I did not have the heart to leave him back , I still remember the look on my mom’s face when I walked into the house it was a mix of bagheera stays & you leave.
A Dog’s Purpose- The movie was thus even more special for me because it not only shows the growth of a puppy to a dog but more so becomes a part of the family . The movie had a very interesting theme and by the end of it I was praying for Bailey to find his way back home. The story across his four life times was a piece of creative genius.
If you have never had a pet I would definitely urge you to have one . The experience will change your perspective of unconditional love .
