What did you see on your run today? #382 stars Casper the lost dog
My running friend Rohit Manaktala has a lovely story from his 15k run in the Lodhi Gardens this morning.
Let him tell you this sweet story in his own words:
“As I finished my cool down walk after a nice 15k interval run at Lodhi today, I saw a car drive up with a beagle which looked exactly like Pixie, my neighbour’s dog, except he was not a she!
I came to know from the lady, a resident of our colony, that the dog was found loitering outside her gate and she thought it was Pixie, and so brought him here only to discover the vital difference!
We had seen a beagle being taken for walks to Lodhi, so surmised he was probably from the adjacent colony. A couple of boys were sent to ask around and spread the word, and we also flashed the news on our colony’s Whatsapp group. Whilst waiting, we kept Casper (discovered his name later) busy by playing with/petting him, and also introduced him to Pixie who, after some initial alarmed barking, started sniffing each other and became quite friendly.
The owner meanwhile had hard about the boys enquiring and came looking for Casper on a scooty. She recognised his bark and zeroed in to where we had tied casper and given him water and biscuits while waiting.”
A happy ending and, maybe, just maybe, a budding romance between Pixie and Casper 🙂
