Our very own Indian dog

29 Aug 2009 | by | Posted in: Q&A

echojy Hello everyone,

There is a query for U all. I have recently shifted to a new apartment in Patparganj. There is a stray dog (adult) in my societ, and I have started feeding him daily twice in a day. I just wanted to know what sort of home cooked food I can give him coz god knows he will like the taste of Pedigree foods as he would have never tasted it for sure. Right now I give him milk & rice, milk & chapati & nonveg. Whatelse can I give him, like sumthing vegetarian. Plus since he is a stray dog I guess he is having ticks coz he's always biting himself or scratching (he is hairy too). I really want to help this poor dog, I have fallen in love with him. Will it be helpful if I start giving him garlic clove in his meal? As I can't bathe him coz he is not my pet dog that he will allow me to do so, our union is just a week old, I can't even take him to a parlour as no one will attend him nor a vet. What I can do is make him wear a tick collar or spray anti-tick on him. Also, how safe is it to touch him will I carry any infection, or by chance he licks me out of love.
Can you tell why does he howls a little bit when I give him his food & he finishes it, is he expressive his thanks or love.

please give me your suggestions, eagerly waiting for it.
