    Arreeee Dhaavak, the dogs in desh are harmless unless provoked. They unfortunately are left on the streets to fend for themselves and get defensive when they feel threatened. No different then humans. And animals know when they meet a animal lover. Give love to feel the love :-)

    Ai! give love… !! give LOVE!! this guy gave me a love bite on my ankle.. i was just walking by and [chomp] the $#%#$ bit me – and apparently it was vegetarian – the owner having raised it on a diet of chapati and milk, with possibly even bengan bharta – and dont even get me started on what happens if a guy tries to go for a morning jog in indian streets – it’s never an easy trot with cow poop and urban packs of coyotes. and i was camping in rajasthan – and i wake up in the middle of the night with this sound aaaouuuuuuu… i was addled, thought it was a wailing baby – but morning i discovered it was a pack of strays hovering around the camp site… freaky
    but dont listen to me. once these kids grow up, they think they know EVERYTHING. Just you wait. Mrs Ghosh’s only was walking down the street you see from the store and he was bitten by a dog. Such a shame, no. He was such a fair boy and such soft skin. He has a big big scar on his unmentionable now.

  7. He has a big big scar on his unmentionable now.

    ROFLMAO…oh no which unmentionables curious minds want to know. Now that the dog has tasted the other you’ve contributed to his sinning for life by turning a vegetarian towards meat. Bad bad paapi.

    Speak for yourself! I got chased by a pack of dogs on my way to grandma’s house. It was like Little Red Riding Hood minus the pic-a-nic basket and any of the charm.
