For most of them he WAS just a street dog, a 4 month old dog residing below my office building but for me he was my little buddy, my street buddy. So energetic and playful, the moment I parked my car in the office parking, I could see him running from the opposite direction. He used to lick my hand asking for those biscuits and sticks I use to get for him daily. He was growing up to be a beautiful dog and then something happened.

On the night of 5th July 2014, some inconsiderable creepy human took out all his anger on this little pup beating the hell out of him and breaking his legs and half of his stomach. I had to call the doctors the very next day who said his chances are less, he is in pain. The same night my little friend passed away at 3 am. The pain was too much for his little body and he crossed the rainbow bridge. He was nobody’s pet and there was no one to mourn his death but he was my little friend and it did made a difference to me.
Now when I park my car there is no one to come and greet me with such innocence. I had named him miracle as he was the only survival of the litter of 6 pups. His mother sat by his body crying till morning. The building watchman was patting her when I came. It was such a sorrowful sight. We do not have Animal Shelters in this city which is very necessary. I dont know when the govt. will start understanding the plight of this beautiful creations.
Human cruelties crosses its boundaries at times. They take out their anger on something which cannot fight back. I wish that person who did that to miracle would rot in hell. I think it’s perfectly possible to explain how the universe came about without bringing God into it, but I don’t know everything, and there may well be a God somewhere, hiding away. Actually, if he is keeping out of sight, it’s because he’s ashamed of his followers and all the cruelty and ignorance they’re responsible for promoting in his name. If I were him, I’d want nothing to do with them.
“People speak sometimes about the “bestial” cruelty of man, but that is terribly unjust and offensive to beasts, no animal could ever be so cruel as a man, so artfully, so artistically cruel.”
