I often wonder that if you could call only a human mother......if that is so then what would the relation of a pup and the bitch who gave birth to it would be???? So , I really don't know, if the term is correctly used here , but I would still call the bitch who gave birth to the pups "the Mother".... in fact she doesn't even have a name on her so for reference purpose I would address her as the Mother indeed. Well,this mother is not our dog.....she is homeless. I saw her frequenting our house recently....and she was pregnant. I don't know how she managed to make herself feel so much at home when we already have three dogs in the house who are very possessive of their domain. But surprisingly , Winnie, Rony and the youngest of them lot Fido were all very gentle with her, even shared their space."DUH".....My Maid with her hands already full was not happy to see another addition into the family.....While I didn't have the heart to send her off , not in her present condition.....so there were always big arguments when it came to meal times for them. I told DUH put an extra plate for her , if she is around....which was violently objected and I would start off with my emotional crap and well at the end of the day I still see her hanging around in our house.....and then one fine morning DUH comes and tells me she has given birth to five pups.....found a place for her self in a corner of our garden and now there was no chance of even thinking of sending her off.....so at present the Dog scenario in the house is five pups with the Mother and our already existing three dogs. That was something to be thought off....now I could hear the discussions between my mother and Duh saying that as soon as the pups are off their mother's milk, the pups should be given off. I dare not say lets keep them....So I very cautiously said lets keep at least one of them. Well,four pups were given off, two of them to my neighbor.....and that evening I saw the Bitch Mother frantically looking for her pups. My heart went out for her but I could do nothing....it was more disturbing because we could hear the pups crying.....I am sure she did too because she was trying to look for them. A Mother after all !!!! And guess what happened ???? The next morning we found her bringing back her two pups to the house again.... those neighbours could not do anything.... they were scard because she almost bit one of them....Well, it was surprising and I should marvel at the Mother's instinct because it seems she waited patiently all through the night.....my neighbor said.... outside their gate and when everyone was asleep she jumped over the hedge and carried her pups back one by one ......and then climbed over the wall of our house as the main gate was closed and brought them in. Who ever said Dog were animals....think twice.!!!! Even they have emotions.....even they show love.....they even cry....!!!! Above all they are very loyal. So we have something to learn from them. And yes I am happy....for the time being the pups can be with their mother.When tomorrow comes ....we shall see !!!!!
