A Good Samaritan's Story I'd Like To Share

(Sent by Viswanadha Sarma vsarma@techmahindra.com )

Hi,

I would like to share my experience in Pune with you all.

I had been to some place near Pune station last week, and found a caravan hound (or Mudhol hound?) lying on the side of the road ( See photo1).

Photo 1


She was very week, slender and even could not stand on her feet. I reached her side and tried to feed her with a loaf of bread (paav as it is called in Maharashtra), biscuits and even chips (even for that matter I gave her batata vada as well).

She took little of each and had four small glasses of milk. She came with us (me and my friends Viswa/Vinod) to the office and waited there as we went in. We returned after 3 hours and she was waiting at the gate (see the photo2).

We took lunch and returned with some pieces of chicken, bones (remains of our non-veg friends´┐Ż lunch). She reached out and ate the pieces very happily. Then we went in again and returned by 9 at night. She was not found and we enquired about her here and there, to know somebody from Satyam office (God bless him) saw her waiting at the gate (for us!) and took her in his car.

May be she got good home and can live her life happily.

I am a dog enthusiast and moved by her pathetic situation, I was planning to take her home if she was there but was constrained by my city life . I knew that I cannot keep the all-running champion hound limited to my apartment and was really thinking all the afternoon how to accommodate her. I did not know about the availability of pet-adopting organizations in Pune. First thing I thought was, I shall take her to my residence and post an ad in Dogsindia. If she was not adopted by the unknown Satyam employee, I could have taken her home with a belief that I can get a safe home for her through Dogsindia.

Thanks for DogsIndia for providing at least a belief for readers like me, that we can get a safe home for old and needy dogs.

Hip Dysplasia:
(Please be patient with the download time, a high quality image is important!)  You might ask "Do cats get hip dysplasia, too?"  The answer is yes, but this disorder is much more prevalent in dogs than in cats. 

normal dog hip

Here is a nice comparison of two hips.  The one on the  left is a normal hip.  You can see how smooth and round the head of the femur is and how nicely the "ball" fits into the "socket".  A hip with this structure is very unlikely to ever develop arthritis....unlike the abnormal hip on the right.  Here you can see the result of years of irritation resulting from a poor fit, a shallow "socket", and a short neck attaching the "ball" to the shaft of the femur.  This severe arthritis is a result of HIP DYSPLASIA.
