On the 21st of August we received a guest at home and this is what Ranjan had to say about her on his facebook page.

“Meet Brin! She was wandering by in our neighbourhood. Multiple wounds in various places. She appears to be 5 months old, and already with ear docked by an overzealous PMC. Could be operated, could not. Time will tell. Right now recovering and slowly coming back to life – she’s all skin and bones, it doesn’t show up much in the pic. Woof! ”

She was bedded down in our veranda with a lot of comfort after she was taken to a vet and various treatments prescribed for her. Manjiree treated her with medicines, ointments etc, fed her regularly and took her out for walks. For ten days she would not move out of her comfort zone but since the beginning of September, she started to and also started to make her presence felt by crying and howling when she wanted some attention. She had become quite active and had also put on weight sufficient enough for Manjiree and Ranjan to decide that she should go back to her own environment. It was heart breaking to send her off, but she is not meant for confined life in a house and needs more freedom and space. So, she bid us goodbye this morning and went off with them.

As I write this, it has been about eight hours and I miss her as does Chutki who keeps going up to the veranda to see what has happened to her!

Ranjan and Manjiree will keep an eye on her and there is a dog lover who feeds street dogs where she is located who too will keep an eye out for her to see that no harm comes to her.

  1. I saw a lot of emaciated, mangy, starving street dogs in India. They need to be sent to Dog Heaven. But Indians don’t kill anything.

    1. By and large you are right in that Indians don’t kill anything. But we do have people who eat meat, fowl fish etc for who there are arrangements to kill animals, birds and aquatic life. Emaciated dogs that you would have seen in cities are those that are the runts of the packs they roam with and here the survival of the fittest philosophy seems to work. In the case of Brin, I suspect that it was such a case and my children were too soft hearted to leave her alone to survive or die in her elements.

  2. I am very happy that Brin has been rescued. I am not sure if she is with Manjiree and Ranjan or only near them but her fate seems to have taken turn for the better and that make me smile. Dog is a dog and deserves being taken care of no matter what country. This may be very idealistic though. I reluctantly agree with bikehikebabe that sometimes the Dogs Heaven maybe the best place. I sent my three dogs there myself at some stage.

    1. I wouldn’t quite call that as rescuing. It was more to save her from other bigger more vicious dogs, get her wounds healed, system all cleaned up and released again to fend for herself. Manjiree and Ranjan are still keeping an eye on her and arrangements have been made to feed her once a day.

  3. I disagree – she was not rescued at all – merely fed and released. There’s a difference. Maybe she’ll luck out and survive. That’s an interesting cultural difference.

  4. Many good wishes to Ranjan and Manjiree for their kindness to animals and to Brin for a speedy recovery and healthier, happier life 🙂
