  1. Thank you Sukanya for sticking up for the wondrous dog. I have heard that dogs are treated ambivalently in India but then I have seen many Indian videos, not to mention meeting Indian people, who have convinced me that India is full of just plain old ordinary/extraordinary dog lovers. And that makes me happy indeed

  5. Hi Dr. Asthapunithramaswamy,,,Thank you so much for helping those who cannot help themselves. I am an animal rescuer also and have 12 cats, a turtle and two dogs. Humans in trouble can always speak snd say they are hungry , thirsty or in pain and these animal children cannot. The God of many names must surely be pleased with you for taking care of his creation.
