Both my son Ranjan and my daughter in law Manjiree go out for appointments and to work on a regular basis. I am then left at home to be the caretaker which duty includes attending to phone calls, receiving couriered parcels, meeting proselytisers, canvassers and sundry visitors besides also as anchor for the two youngsters who may want to know something or the other about what is at home or happening at home.

The one duty that is quite pleasurable is the quiet company that I provide to our Chutki.  I dog sit her and she old man sits me.  She thinks that she is a human being when she is with Ranjan and Manjiree and she thinks that I am a dog when I am with her.


It is a greater pleasure still when I return from an outing.  The welcome I receive from her is like nothing on earth. I was reminded of this when I read this joke earlier this morning in a forward in WhatsApp. “Do you want to find out who loves you more – Your Dog or your Wife/Girlfriend? Do what I did… Lock both your dog and your wife in the trunk of your car for an hour and see who’s happy to see you when you open the trunk lid!”

I don’t have a wife or a girl friend. But I can tell the generator of that silly joke one thing. I will never, ever, for any reason lock my wife or a girl friend if I had one, or lock my dog in the trunk of my car. I don’t need to.  I know.

  2. Hi Rummy,

    What a terrible joke: locking people and animals up in rooms or trunks of a car shouldn’t be taken into consideration as a test to affections. Whomever generated that joke has some serious psychological issues.

    Chutki is so sweet, look at that face! So, she thinks she’s human…I had a dog like that too lol.
    Such a sweet post; thank you.

  3. never been a dog person, but they do seem to be great companions…and at least you know that any time of day you have someone at home “waiting to greet you” – listen to your story and not judge why you were out, why your late (even if you are on time) “oh there you are rummuser what have you been up to today?, the movies, tell me about it…after you get me a snack. Get one for yourself as well and I can hear the tale”
