My Pet Dog
A pet is a source of pleasure. But my pet dog Moti is also a source of security and protection. No other animal is as sincere and faithful as the dog. The dogs have been in the service of man since the dawn of civilization. Originally the dog was as wild as the wolf. And it is a matter of research how it came to be domesticated.
Moti is an Alsatian. These types of dogs are also called German Shepherds. For some a pet dog is a status symbol, but for me my Moti is a necessity. I cannot think of my life without him. I came to possess it three years back. Then it was a little puppy of four months. In our neighbour lived Mr. Aditya. He was a great canine lover. When he was transferred to Mumbai from here, he gave it to me as a gift.
Moti is of medium height. It has a curved bushy tail, sharp liquid eyes, strong jaws and nimble feet. It has grown wonderfully strong and can easily be the envy of many dog-lovers. I have taken great pains in training my dog. Its doggie manners are to be seen not to be believed. It has impeccable toilet habits. When it wants to go for toilet, it makes a peculiar cry resembling a moan. My Moti can sit, stand, run and fetch things as commanded.
Most part of the day Moti can be seen about our house. We seldom chain him. In our presence he is calm and gentle. But no stranger can approach our house as he is so ferocious in his barking. It never jumps upon our beds or sofas. He faithfully obeys the command given. He recognizes friends and the postman who visits us almost regularly.
I feed Moti with bread, biscuits, milk, etc. But I never give him meat. Thus my Moti is totally vegetarian. He also enjoys rice and curry. I never give him sweets for they would spoil his splendid coat of hair. I take him out for a long walk in the morning and evening. He keeps me company when I go for a walk. We also play together with a ball and a stick We feel quite secure and safe because of the presence of Moti.
