Horlick was Koibito's first dog. I could see that he fell in love with her once he set eyes on her. Months and months back he was whining to want to get a dog, especially a Labrador, but he never got one. I think God heard his prayers. Mimi gave birth to a litter of puppies and Horlick looks just like one!
I gave Horlick to him, albeit a tad unwillingly. In just a matter of 2 weeks, she'd learnt to some of his basic commands like "sit", albeit not perfectly. All in all, I could really see he was happy.
She would play with him whenever he got home in the evening. Howl when he bathed her, then frolicked around the lawn again. And when he sat on the ground to take a puff after a long day, she would sit beside him, like a friend who was just there for you, without having to say anything.
One day.. when he arrived home, Horlick was nowhere to be seen in her usual spot. There wasn't a hint of yapping nearby........ Koibito's parents had given her away...:' (
I know this is a great grief to him .. but as an obedient son, this is the fact that he has to accept.
Daddy and mommy miss you Horlick.
