Chp 428. Hello Saddam!


Say hello to Saddam, our new 1 month old Beagle.



Being a pure breed Beagle and being bred by one of the most renowned and trusted breeders in Mumbai, he came at a heavy price tag of 35,000. Throw in all the items he will require like his chewey toys, food stock, medicines, brushes, food bowl etc, the final cost came to almost 45K. That’s like… 118 full bottles of Old Monk rum! Let’s hope the kick and high we will get from him is better than 118 Old Monk bottles. :D

We took him back to office from the pet store and he ate…



slept…



and played with the mop that our office boy was using to clean his pee.



Ah yes, that’s one big difference between Gaddafi and Saddam. Gaddafi, like most cats, craps and pees in the litter box instinctively. They don’t need to be trained. Saddam on the other hand, is not yet toilet trained, and so our house is currently covered with newspapers.





And speaking of Gaddafi, the cat is EXTREMELY SCARED of Saddam. The moment he saw Saddam yesterday, quick as lightning he scooted immediately as if he saw a ghost and scurried up my flatmate’s shirt, clawing him tightly and shivering uncontrollably! The poor soul. :-(

And so we decided to keep the two apart until Gaddafi stops being scared of Saddam, hence I had to sleep with my bedroom door locked with Gaddafi inside (along with his food and water bowl and his litter box). As I said goodnight to him, he was neatly tucked in under my bed. And then when I woke up this morning and opened my eyes, this was the first thing I saw, lolz!



Yeah, shameless and cute at the same time. :-)

Coming back to the breeder, his shop is called “Oh My Dog!!!” and he knows A LOT about dogs. He gave us an hour long lecture on how to treat our new dog, what to feed, when to feed, when to give medicines, when to bathe etc etc… Sid was doing most of the listening while half the time I was taking pictures of his store. Here are some of the pics…













Here is the breeder giving Sid a lecture…



And here are some of the goodies we bought for the bratty little shitting and peeing machine…



BONUS: This here is a pure breed blue-eyed Siberian Husky. He comes at an atrocious price tag of Rs. 75,000/- But he’s super cute and adorable!



So here’s to many sleepless nights and tiresome days ahead of whining and perpetually hungry puppy and kitten who, to make things worse, don’t get along with each other. Cheers!
