Planet of the dogs!

My little dog Honey is a celebrity in her own right. She is the cynosure of all eyes and I have got to know a lot of people through her. In Church, Supermarket etc I have young couples, girls, old couples etc smiling at me even though I don't know them personally. These are people I meet when I take my doggies for a walk and who stop me on the road so that they can pat Honey.

There is even an unofficial "Honey" fan club in my area with the all the kids living here as members. Honey is a cream colored Lhasa Apso and she looks like any other Lhasa Apso’s, so I have never understood why she gets so much attention from all and sundry.

Anyways, recently my Wi-Fi router konked off and I had to call the Airtel people to replace it. This is the conversation that took between my brother M and the Airtel Engineer as he tried to guide him to our house:

M: Can you see the yellow board on the main road?
Airtel guy: Yes,and I have taken the right from there as you said but landed up at a deadend.
M: Ok, this time come straight down the road till you reach a house with a white gate and…
Airtel guy: Is this the house with the white fluffy dog?
M: Yes!
Airtel: Oh ok, now I know the house!!!

There was a time when she was my pet, now I am her “human” *sigh*
:p

Sweet :) . First time in my life I am hearing something like "The House of white fluffy Dog" instead of Oh the house near that of Mr:X , Oh the house near the pan shop etc.

P S: Say a Hi to Honey :D

Honey seems to be quite a popular figure out there..Maybe ever since Hutch started marketing with a dog , Airtel spies might be tracking all the cute dogs in town..

And infact Hutch might rephrase their tag line as "Wherever your dog goes, our network follows.
" :-P

Does Honey know about her newfound celebrity status.

This post had me confused through. How do you divide your posts among the two blogs?

Di said...

Alexis said...

It is nice to have such a popular pet :-)Cream colored Lhasa Apso...No wonder the number of admirers and the fan club. But what about Brandy? Give a pat for me to both of them...

@mathew: That was a nice one buddy. So how is your encounters with 'Puten' these days?

Very funny... the punch line was cool !!! Honey seems really popular... I have some similar anecdotes but not with an inanimate object tho :-)

Ajith said...

he..he.. Call it Attention deficit syndrome [:)] where ur dog captures all the attention that u r expecting ..:D Another thing that comes to my mind is that hutch-ad with that Dog following that kid.. In due course,i hope ur postal address would be like "Silverine, C/o Honey, ( White Lhasa Apso .... "
