Today I woke up late in the morning. My food was ready on my side; they forgot to clean my kennel for two days. No matter it’s because of their busy schedule. My Sujith won’t neglect me if he gets time. I am Micky a bitch belonging to German shepherd breed. I am now an old bitch, no longer eligible as watch dog. I came to this home as a pup. It was hardly one week after I had opened my eyes. Before that my world was only my mother’s warm body and her lactating nipples. I lay there by suckling her nipples. One afternoon I was bathed by my master and dried well using a towel. Then I was handed over to a handsome young guy who was standing outside the house.
He placed me on the front seat of his car and took me to his home. In that home there was his father and mother. My new master’s name was Ashik, his parents were school teachers. Ashik was their elder son, his sister Anitha was married and lives with her husband. That night I slept in Ashik’s room. My first night with a man, he was very kind. He arranged a small mattress for me. I and Ashik became thick friends. He cared me well. I slept in Ashik’s bedroom till his marriage.
Ashik got job immediately after the completion of his B tech. He married Liza who was his lover. Ashik’s parents accepted Liza even though she was from another religion. From that day onwards I was transferred to this kennel. I was a little sad to part from Ashik. But I understood that it was for Ashik’s family and so I never bothered about it. Ashik and Liza were very romantic couples. Their honeymoon lasted for several weeks and Ashik visited me rarely. But I was cared well, one man was appointed for bathing me and for cleaning the kennels. My food was also provided on time, I was happy to see Ashik’s and Liza’s life. Liza never visited me, she was scared of dogs. After one year Sujith was born. I was happy to see a new guest in our home. He was a cute baby with a smiling face.
One afternoon I was taking a short nap on my kennel. Suddenly I heard one shouting from the house. It was Liza, “I will live as I like, who are you to interfere”. Ashik remained silent. That evening I heard Ashik’s mother sobbing. Ashik began to visit me frequently. It was from the talking between the servants I came to know that Liza never likes to live as a wife in a family. She loves to be independent. I was not at all happy to see Ashik near to my kennel as he was sad. Liza never cared Sujith. I was pregnant while these issues were going on.
Liza gave me for crossing as it was an extravaganza to keep a bitch in the house just for feeding. On one night I delivered four puppies. But after one week I began to lose my puppies one by one. At last I became alone in the kennel my breasts were still lactating.
That night I was thinking about my puppies, suddenly Ashik came near me. He began to stroke my body; I saw his eyes filled with tears. He was drunk; he began to talk to me. I was unable to grasp every word but final words were clear to me, it was who will care you and Sujith if I am gone. The next day I saw a large crowd in front of the house. I was eager to know the reason. After long time I came to know that my Ashik died due to heart attack. I hear little Sujith crying loudly. After Ashik’s death Sujith was totally neglected by Liza. Ashik’s parents left the home and joined an old age home. Liza leaves home early in the morning and comes in late night. She rarely came home with consciousness.
One day the servants forgot to lock my kennel after cleaning. There was nowhere for me to go, so I remained in my kennel sleeping. Suddenly I heard one sound, when I opened my eyes I saw little Sujith crying by lying on the ground. I understood that he had fallen from the steps while peeping outwards. I ran towards him from my kennel. I can’t hold him as I was a dog. I licked him and lay beside him.
He smiled at me; suddenly he came under the comfort of my fur. I looked around there was nobody? I comforted him with my arms. Suddenly I saw the servant coming back. So I ran back to my kennel. After that I began to visit sujith whenever I got a chance. One day when I visited him, he played with me for sometime I was very tired and closed my eyes. At that time I felt a touch in my breasts. I was shocked to see what had happened Sujith was suckling my nipples. Human feeding on dog’s milk, I am sure if anybody sees this I will be killed. I began to get up but Sujith cried. I was unable to see his tears.
This happened for a couple of days. We lived as mother and son, one day Liza happened to see this. My kennel was locked and Sujith was taken to day care. But she didn’t accept the fact that it was hunger that made his son do this. It was because of luck that Sujith survived apart from this. Sujith came to me whenever he got time. Today is my Sujith’s marriage. I heard that he is going to settle in Chennai. So I won’t see him again. I don’t know whether he remember me. Liza has been remarried and is now in London. It was early in the morning when I woke up. I saw Sujith and his wife standing in front of my kennel. There was a lorry waiting outside it was filled with household articles. I understood that my Sujith is going, my eyes filled with tears. Suddenly I saw a large cage.
Sujith opened my kennel and asked me to get out. I obeyed, he told me to enter into the cage. After that he called a worker, “keep this cage in a safe place in the train I had already got tickets so that they will make arrangements for her travel.” Then only I knew that Sujith is taking me to Chennai. I was happy to see that my son didn’t forget me.
