Lets talk dog

12 Jun

Akank’s long time want is closer to being met this year. From the time she learnt to say dog, she has wanted one. We have denied her a pup all these years and we have almost run out of excuses. From ‘ you have to learn to organize yourself’ to a lame ‘ you have to learn to walk your dog’ I think we have covered almost all reasons. The saving grace has been that her father has been enthusiastic to a future prospect of letting our little girl own a pet from the beginning. So, lately, Akank talks about her impending gift for her soon to come around 11th birthday( I have waited 8 years, ma!). She is disappointed when I don’t share her excitement  and sulks when I tell her to save the discussion for later ‘when the time is near’. Since we pretty much discuss everything else, I only thought it fair that she saves discussing this topic with her father, who shares her enthusiasm.

The other afternoon I saw her busily scribbling into her book. She brought it to me later and I saw around 18 questions about her pet dog, all prepared for the evening discussion when her father got home from work. There were a range of questions from naming to buying dog feed, collar colour ( Can we give him a  blue collar?), pet rules at home, toilet training, to where to pick accessories and costs.  Question 9 caught my attention and brought a smile. It said ” Can you convince amma to talk about dogs with interest?”

    We did have 2 rounds of talk about dog names when you were touring Europe!

    It definitely brings a smile 🙂 Akank is really adorable and very very sweet!

    Arthi: I have been reading all your blogs and have been following every single one from “Toddlerspeak” to “Tweanspeak”. I really enjoy and like the way you capture every moment in Akank’s life 🙂 I would be looking forward for more such readings 🙂 🙂

      Wow, Abhi. You made my day. I write to please myself but just knowing someone else reads my blogs and enjoys them is so rewarding! Thanks for your support.
