INTRODUCTION: Today, Mrs. Huma Farooq Ahmad has contributed as a guest writer on "THE MAGAZINE AT BLOGSPOT", by writing on a topic relevant to "LIFESTYLE CORNER".
Each and every person's lifestyle is different. In my household pets play a very big part in everyday activities which make my lifestyle.
From 6.00 am, when Rocky, the dachshund, insists on coming into the bedroom of my parents and sleeping on the bed with my father.
Their breakfast of milk, fruits and nuts with my father, all together sitting on the veranda. Yes I am serious, all four have the same breakfast...!
The whole day keeps us busy with having to do some necessary activities at different times involving the three dogs.
Their every evening walk. They wait for that most eagerly. Know when it's their turn. I take them separately as all have their individual style of walking, plus their size of legs different too...!
At night locking up my gate is a ritual too. We run up and down the driveway pretending to catch someone or something...!
Every two weeks in summer giving them a bath is a tough assignment. Somehow they know when it's time. They will all hide. One of their favourite hiding place is under the lounge sofa. I assure you dragging a dog out from under it when it's pretending to be a stiff log is no easy job. After the anti tick shampoo bath they are all tied to the garden bench. That's the only time they are ever tied.
For my parents and me a life without pets is a life without joy. We will have so much free time on our hands. So much of devotion and love which I get from the three dogs can only be realised by people who have pets. Cindy, Dixie and Rocky, I love you too.
