Its been a fortnight nearly since i wrote as i was caught up with a wedding in the family. The break in the writing routine left me with a temporary writers block. To be able to write i needed something close to my heart that would inspire me and i could think of no one but Bingo a Boxer.
Bingo As A Pup: I have know Bingo since he was a pup and had come as a boarder in the home stay service i provided for dogs in Bandra years ago. Bingo walked in to sniff out our home stay with his parents “The Pandits”. He was all but 5 months old and darted around like a deer sprinting all over the house. He was quite a regular at our place sometimes just for a couple of hours each day and then for longer overnight stays.
Boxer Dogs Make Good Clowns: Bingo captivated my heart not just because he was a dog but also because of his quirkiness which amused me to no end. He was always up to mischief and crazy in a good way. If it was quiet for too long you knew Bingo was up to something especially if his best buddy Dexter the Labrador in crime was there too . There was never a quiet moment with him around because he loved his squeaky toys. He didn’t know what “tired” meant the boy could play endless games of fetch and i often joked with his folks about getting a tennis ball pitching machine at home for him. I remember one such instance when I needed Bingo to be tired so I took him for a long walk to Carter Rd we sat down for a break next 2 fisher women that were having a conversation. Bingo being the dog he is doesn’t believe in doing nothing with his time unless he is taking a nap. While these 2 women were having a conversation with nothing better to do he settled himself between them and followed their talk by turning his head from side to side. It was too hilarious to watch. Here is a video of Bingo doing his happy dance when it is time to go for a walk https://www.instagram.com/p/BMyoBL7DpDj/?taken-by=princelypaws
Lessons To Learn From Bingo: Live life to the fullest let no time slip away from you where you can lick your humans to show how much you love them.
When you cant play fetch snooze. When i am pet sitting him the only thing i dread are his “farts” 🙂 . When you want to play fetch and the humans are busy try diligently till you succeed after all who can say “no” to that face. Bingo is now a 5 year old boy and still continues to be the apple of his pet parents eyes and now plays the role of a big brother to his human sibling. They share their toys together and are inseparable. Bingo follows the “Be PaWsitive” philosophy all the way!!
