To be loved unconditionally is something that everyone wishes for. And when I say “everyone”, it is Homo sapiens that I refer to. Gift of love is beautiful but, only few seem to realize it.
A package of boundless love and pure innocence entered my life when I was in my 9th grade. The memory of that moment is still afresh when those majestic eyes looked into mine while I took him in my arms. Imagine yourself sitting at a restaurant filled with nice aroma with your tummy growling. The wait undoubtedly seems longer than usual. But the moment your food arrives, all of a sudden, you are no more a freak. Mirth takes over. 😀 Similar was my feeling. Excitement and happiness filled my heart.
It was on the day of Diwali, in 2009 that my journey with him began. Since that day, his presence has added colour to my life.
This charming guy with his cute little face was only 2 months old when he licked my face for the very first time. It was weird. But yes, he liked me and I was contented. Wouldn’t it be cool to have your best friend around you almost all the time, making it possible for you to share even the most random matter at random hours, without you having to spend money on calls? Well, I must admit that this munchkin has actually helped me save a lot of money!
This best friend of mine can do wonders- he can chase away loneliness, brighten me up in the lowest phase, console me when required (yeah! he does that without actually talking). You might be thinking that it is smart to have such a friend who will not even bother talking in the fighting sessions. But that is not the case.. Because, he expresses anger by simply getting hold of my belongings like footwear, clothes, books and what not! And one day he was angry….so much that he didn’t talk to me when I got back home. Why is he so possessive about me? Moreover, why does he get upset if I am unable to go out with him one day for a walk? That was the day when i saw his shenanigan in the garb of cuteness. He did take a revenge on our next walk. Pushed me into a puddle of sewage water being used for the renovation of golf ground ( NO KIDDING!) But his fun-spirited charisma did not infuriate me. Surprisingly, I was enjoying it with him all along, because of the usually grumpy girl I am.
With the passage of time, not only our bond grew stronger, but also his physique. He turned into a big handsome boy, but deep down, he still carried his innocence. And so, walking him ( or rather flying with him) became a laborious task. It was no less than some martial art, that too thrice a day. He is the one to control me rather than me taking charge of him. Still waiting for the day when he would actually walk WITH me. He is the one to listen to all my rantings, but never does he utter a word. Though his eyes speak and the best part…? I totally understand them. Our heart-to-heart conversation.
The innocence in him transforms into ferocity when he meets someone of his kind (except for puppies and other “ladies” 😛 ). God has bestowed human beings with enormous abilities which they tend to misuse or ignore at times. On the other hand He has created some wonderful creatures who are seldom aware of their own qualities. Have you been fortunate enough to meet them?
Me, I have been very lucky to have come across one of them. I cherish this muteness. To befriend a dog is a heavenly bless, as it will never abandon you, even if you abandon the dog. Let me also tell you the most striking fact about them. Their muteness speak louder than the words of human beings.
MY LOVE FOR YOU FLIES HIGH AND BRIGHT AS A DOVE, MAKING YOU MY HERO, STRONG AND CARING ALL ABOVE.
YOU ALWAYS NEED A LITTLE CARING SHOVE, AND THIS IS MY TALE OF A “MUTE LOVE”.
