Recently, I traveled from Chennai to Bangalore by road and had the one of kind pleasure of transporting a pup, whom my friend @teamtherapy adopted, to his new hometown. The pupper was obviously anxious, disoriented and struggled to keep calm at the start of our journey, but I tried to keep him as relaxed as possible. He eventually stopped trembling and got comfy soon after. There is something personal about a pet trusting you, be it yours or others. It opens you up to a new realm of understanding, of comfort and unconditional love. It tells you a lot about yourself. It shows you a side that you've never experienced before. A gentle yet genuine maternal instinct kicks in without you even realising. And when those little ones finally do open up and let you into their world of vulnerably and affection, you then understand why people say "Happiness is a warm puppy". It's because the happiness is in your heart and the warmth is all over your lap which he just peed on! At that warm, wet, serene moment in time, you've attained true companionship.
Thank you Spark for that amazing metaphor! You have a heart of gold and a bladder the size of King Kong! Full love though ❤️
