How it all started

AS i begin this journey of blogging, I feel it would not be right to start without giving you all a background of our story.

Well, for as long as I can remember, I have loved animals. I have always felt a bond with them (especially with dogs) which I never felt with my fellow human beings. I would always prefer to go to the relative who had a dog or was friends with street animals. I wanted to get one myself. Unfortunately my mother has an insane fear of dogs. When I asked my parents to get me a puppy, I was told he would poop and pee around the house and my mother would have to clean it as I was too young to take the responsibility of a fellow creature on my tiny shoulders.

Years passed. Life became busier. Getting a puppy started to become impossible. How to manage such a hectic life and a puppy? My dream of having a four legged friend became more and more impossible.

The year 2018 was very stressful for me. I was facing difficulties in my personal as well as professional life. To top everything off, I also was in a major car accident. All in all, I had reached my breaking point. My husband was very supportive, but living was becoming very hard with severe PTSD and other problems.

November 2018, I came to know that a litter of puppies were freezing in the cold just outside the hostel we used to live in. When we saw them, there were 5 pups in total. All of them were playing despite of the cold except one. This one pup was thinner than the others, scared of every passerby and was only chewing on dead leaves. He wouldn’t eat when provided with food. This went on for two nights. On the third night, he seemed like he was starving and malnourished, but due to his extreme fear, he would not come out to eat. That’s when my husband and I realized that he would not make it to the next day without our help. Thus we brought Alpha in. I wrapped his tiny body up in anything I could find. He was shivering so bad. I stayed up with him all night trying to get him to eat. Finally towards the wee hours of next morning, he drank some milk. That gave us hope for his survival and we realized that our temporary house guest had become a permanent family member. He was and will always be our first son.

A few days later, on 21st November, 2018 I noticed another batch of litter at the same place. Here too, all the pups were doing great except one who was incredibly tiny. All of the pups had opened their eyes,were exploring the world around them while this one little guy had his eyes closed and was fumbling around. The mother had abandoned them. I knew I had to help this little guy, otherwise he wouldn’t survive. I thought, I will being him in, feed him and put him back with his family. I did not have enough space to keep two doggos with me in one room. So, I fed this little guy some milk with a dropper and was ready to put him back when my husband came to know of all this. For him, it was love at first sight. Thus, entered Delta Bunny in our lives.

Mr. Delta Bunny…his first night with us. He would fit in my hand…he was that tiny…!!!

Now, when we reminisce about our time before Alpha and Delta, life just seems so incomplete. It’s as if there was a missing piece in the puzzle and Alpha and Delta fit right in.

But things never really go as planned. We had imagined 10-15 years with Alpha and Delta. However our Alpha died at four months of age. He had certain neurological ailments from birth. We are just happy that we got four amazing months with him. He also lived his life to the fullest in that time. It was very painful and hard to believe that Alpha was not with us anymore. However, my little Delta took it upon himself to comfort his parents, gave us lots and lots of mlerms (kisses), cuddles, hugs and so much love that the devastation we felt on loosing Alpha turned into this determination to save more doggos and give them a better quality of life. . .

Alpha has taught me so much and I want to honour him whichever way I can. Rest in peace Alpha Honey. Our love for you will stay constant till the day we die.

My sweet boy, Alpha Honey
