Pupper Party 3.0

Yet another Pupper Party post! This time, we were in The House, Versova! This post is also a part of the ramp up to the ultimate pet event of the city, PetFed 2019.

This time we had cocker spaniels, labradors, golden retrievers, pugs and many more! Enjoy πŸ™‚

As always, it is immense fun to cuddle and play with the dogs, while trying best to take the photos too.

Next up, should be a peek into how my village looks like.

Cheers!!

Pupper Party 2.0

With PetFed 2019 scheduled for January, the ramping up to the mega event has already begun, in the form of Pupper Parties.

PetFed is one of the biggest congregation of pets in the town. Multitude of dogs and cats can be seen with their respective human pets. Here, the paws are the kings and queens and all others are the slaves. Often one can find the human subjects gawking and cooing at the pups and kittens around. Overall, it is fun, for any pet lover that is. You can check out the coverage of PetFed 2017 here and here.

The mini parties which take place around the town, we call them Pupper Parties. A previous one can be seen hereΒ and here.

This one I post about today, was held at SamBar, Khar, Mumbai.

Lets take a look at the pups!

Many more of these amazing pooches meet at the subsequent Pupper Parties. If you are a pet lover and are in Mumbai, I would recommend you join these parties and have a gala time!

Cheers!!

 

PetFed2017 Mumbai – Part 2

Day 1 at PetFed 2017 was amazing, while day 2 had more of pups and humans coming in for the shows and games. On the second day, I barely took some photos for I was too busy cuddling furballs all over the field. Here are a few:

A fluffy Chow Chow

A white retriever and a husky

There was a dog obedience demonstration and the dogs featured were non other than Begian Malinois. Since watching Person of Interest, I always wanted to get close to a Malinois. Such innocent face they have, cuties, while one must always remember that there are fewer more loyal or ferocious.

A Belgian Molinois

Then there was a Poodle. A super pretty and quite a tiny one.

Then, there was this puppy and this rabbit, the only rabbit in the entire PetFed 2017.

And finally, there was Simran with a cat.

To end, I will say that it was a wonderful weekend of playing and cuddling with so many dogs and cats. Had an amazing time working with fellow photographers and other volunteers and I look forward to meeting even more pets the next PetFed!!

PetFed2017 Mumbai – Part 1

For the pet lovers out there, the owners and the pets themselves, one of the best and amazing events that took place in Mumbai last year was the PetFed2017.
There were dogs of varied breeds from tiny Chihuahuas to big fluffy Chow Chows, Alsatians, Labradors, Golden Retrievers. The most common members were from the Pug and Shih Tzu categories out there, the trend owing to the limited spaces found in Mumbai. There were a couple of Spaniels and Huskies too in the crowd. Few cats had shown up and they had separate swag of their own. There was also one rabbit in the huge list of attendees.

Lets have a look at some glimpses of the event.

On the first day, during the day time, the pets got exhausted quickly with all the running and frolicking around in the high sun. On day two, things changed quite a bit. What I learnt was that there are a lot of dogs and breeds of whom I had no idea at all existed or were family members right here in India. It was quite amazing to be able to hug and cuddle them πŸ™‚

Part 2 shall be up real soon.

The Pre-PetFed Get together

A week or so back, I found myself at the first floor bar, the Zoobar, cuddling puppies and taking photographs. That was the Pre PetFed get together, being organized as a ramp up to the PetFed 2017 to be held on 16 and 17 of December, 2017.

I met some familiar faces there, from the previous PetFed meet, The Pupper Party, while there were some new ones too.

Let me know which dog you find the cutest of all in the comments below πŸ™‚

Pupper Party, Mumbai

Wouldn’t it be just wonderful if we had a casual congregation of loads of dogs and their owners and both species could socialize???
I believe this is the thought the organizers of the Pupper Party had in their minds.

In what appeared to be a ramp up to the Pet Fed celebrations in December, at Mumbai, the Pupper Party was organized by the Pet Fed at SamBar Pub & Kitchen, Khar, Mumbai.
There were about forty dogs, Gunda, Oreo, Bitsy, Poshto, Magic…and so many more, followed, dragged, chased by and along with their owners all around the property. One could hear barks, howls and the occasional,”Who’s a good boy??” from the crowd. We all know who’s the good boy right???

There was a meal made ready for the guests, dog food, ice creams, treats. And there was also beer for the handlers.
There were numerous games to play customized for the puppies, the tiny ones and the big ones.

It was interesting to see strangers become friends over the shared love for the dogs. No doubts, there were a few loud barks here and there and the owners running around apologizing everywhere, in all, I found the event quite interesting and am really looking forward to the PetFed Mumbai scheduled in December 2017.

Till the next post,
Cheers!!!

A day with the Beagles

Recently, an adoption drive by the ResQ Charitable Trust was concluded here at Pune. Me and a friend of mine, we went there to have a look at how things occur.
ResQ CT is a not-for-profit organization which works towards rescuing and rehabilitating the injured and sick animals. They have general wards, intensive care wards, pediatric wards and trained individuals to take care of the animals in their care. They also indulge in awareness programs for the same.
Up for adoption were numerous Beagles, of different age and gender. In all, they were quite playful and here’s to hoping they find loving homes.

Here are some of the scenes from the day

There were dogs who had cancer and/or paralysis on some parts of their bodies. Buffalo calfs who think themselves to be dogs, three legged dog, etc. What felt amazing was that they have all being taken care of and the men and women at the charity ensure that ResQ lives up to the tag line of being the halfway home.

I hope the animals find the love that they deserve and the charity the recognition.

Cheers!!
