Snuffy, the 3500 rupee puppy
This is an older story. Some of you may have seen it before. Including it because it’s one of my favorites and goes straight to the Heart.
We named this little guy Snuffy. He was about 1½ months when we got him. He was found on the streets in Chennai by a lady named Devika with whom we have a longtime connection. She had a really good Chennai shelter named Cattitude, which may still be going. AND she has a massive Heart, which sometimes does her in—Sound familiar?--. He’d lost his mother and had a bad skin condition—no hair. She was taking him to someone in Chennai that was very expensive and wasn’t making much headway on the skin condition. She asked if we’d take him in as a special favor. And so he was sent to us in A CAR. That makes him a 3500 rupee puppy.
The photo is a “before shot”. One of the videos (13 seconds) shows me holding him and he not really responding to my snuggling and kisses. He hadn’t yet recovered from the loss of his mother and his “survival days” on the Chennai streets. The second video (53 seconds) is a different story. A lot of his coat has come in. His Heart is re-opening. And he’s snuggling back.
We are so, so pleased dear Snuffy. Welcome back. Om Namah Shivaya
