Indian Street dog in Aztec?
Thanks Jim. Don’t know what will happen. But it’s all for the best. Maybe he’ll bless the perfect Indian family.

Awww that face!
This is the most adorable thing I've seen in a long time! x

Adorable Face
My face or his? We look kind of similar I think. Thanks for your comment!

Buddy Love
Terry I read this post with such mixed emotions. Regardless of how the story ends, Buddy knows he is loved and that is everything! He had the most beautiful eyes. I'm not sure if you've seen an Australian Kelpie - there are many similarities to Buddy. We have two red and tan Kelpies, and Buddy could easily pass for a cream Australian Kelpie cross :)

Cross
Australian kelpie cross—from now on, that’s his breed—if anyone asks. Thanks for your comment. Mixed emotions indeed. I could hardly write the piece.

Showing love to the lowest of the low, a street dog will, I believe...
cause some people to stop and reflect. One of the elders in our church is a vet, and he is going to India to take care of animals there. How a society takes care of animals is a reflection of how they take care of people. Thanks for writing about you and Buddy!

Reflection
This boy is still so trusting and friendly despite the life he’s had on the street. Thanks for your comment.

The heart of Buddy
Lovely story about your connection to the amazing Buddy. He is a very lucky dog, indeed. I hope you find a happy place for him.

Heart
Thanks Vicki. Two hearts. All about two hearts.

Support
Hang in there Terri. I'm praying for you and for Buddy too. Could he have a sponsor in the states? Is there a Soi Dog foundation there? They rescue dogs in southeast asia. Thanking of you and missing you. Kristie.

Support
Thanks so much Kristie. I’ve tried a couple routes for support. It seems that much more effort goes toward helping the “pedigree” dogs. I did contact one rescue organization a couple times and received no response. Could be back to the streets for this boy. I’m trying to get him stronger so he has a chance in his old home neighborhood.

Thanks so much for caring...
and I wish the best for you and Rescue Dog.

Caring
Thanks. We need all the supportive energy we can get!!

On a more serious note
The dog story is good, but it got me thinking...the dogs I have had...and it's been a few always liked grain and milk or almost anything with milk...your dealing with a upset stomach too...something to try anyway...have fun! jim

Milk
Buddy seems to like curd on rice, a popular food for many dogs in India. With added benefit of no lactose which could upset the tummy. But I’ll give anything that won’t make him puke!
28th January 2020

So..no dog food in India!
28th January 2020

Dog food
Yes there’s dog food. So foreign to a street dog, though, so must be introduced slowly. Also the kind for sensitive stomachs is very expensive even for me!

So Sad!
Such a heart-wrenching story but so beautifully written. I wish there were more people in the world who loved animals so much -- there's so much neglect and cruelty! I hope that someone in India is loving and caring for Buddy as much as you did.

Neglect
Thanks for your kind words. Yes abundant neglect here for animals, yet there are many who care also but are not sure what they can do for the thousands of homeless animals. One animal at a time I think.

My tie? You like my tie?
I have understood that giving a compliment about an item a person possesses can make that person feel obligated to offer it as a gift. Wonder if that young student thought he needed to give his tie to the photographer! How to explain that one to Amma and Appa after school! Great outing. These are the types of adventures I love in India. Even though I wrote a thesis on "literature," I made sure it would include field work that could lead me on adventures. It surely did! You never know what will happen, and it generally comes out better than expected if you know the ropes.

Tie gift
I’m sure that’s what he was thinking! I wonder if he suffers from nightmares about the foreigners grabbing his tie and making off with it.

No headache

I love this photo!
Your opening line... "I needed an adventure"... is fabulous! Hope the kid with the tie wasn't too traumatised! :)
