The baby sharing space in the dog basket is my grand daughter Taamara (meaning Lotus in Sanskrit and Malyalam). We have four dogs and a cat in our family. Two Bharath Hounds (as I prefer calling them!), one Beagle and one Jack Russell Terrier - the latter sharing footage with the baby!
One of the BHs is Patch, a big, rangy 14 year old black and white female, who we adopted after she returned to our house after "escaping" from an animal shelter hospital run by an NGO. At my request, Patch had been picked up by the shelter ambulance from outside our gate (she was then a street dog), and sent to their hospital, a good seven kms away, to be neutered. Within four days, Patch was back outside our gate, having jumped the fence of her enclosure and walked back to our house, smelling her way home through Bangalore's teeming roads! She was promptly "legally" adopted by us after her Incredible Journey - that was thirteen years ago. Ragamuffin, the honey and white-coloured BH in the photo, is two years old, and again adopted off the streets as a two-month old puppy. She is very sharp and alert and is our family's 24x7 Watchman. Nobody can get into our compound because of Muffin's alertness, and my children say that she has replaced Patch, who has now earned her retirement!
