Arjun built this machine model sometime back. Can you identify what it is??
We were listening to radio news. India lost to Australia in the recent cricket match. Arjun heard only the “India lost” part asked me whether there was a war and India lost it. I said ” no, they lost a cricket match”
Arjun: Whom were they playing with?
Me :With Australia
Arjun: Where were they playing?
Me: In Australia.
Arjun: Do you mean to say all of them went to Australia just to play cricket?
I couldn’ t answer that!!
Then he took me home. There he gave me another treat. Then I heard Winy calling me. I rushed to winy and saw my feeding bowl next to her feet! I looked inside my feeding bowl and saw milk!!! i licked my bowl clean. Then I went to my bed and was fast asleep in more than a minute. My dream was rather funny! I was a super dog. I was saving the world from evil dinosaurs when I got up and heard Cago calling me. And saw him with a ball in his hands. He threw it and said “Fetch!” I ran after the ball and finally got it. Then I heard Cago calling me. When I went to him, he took it from me and gave me a treat saying “good boy!”. I wagged my tail and licked his face. He patted my head and ran home.
I ran after him doing the same thing he did. When we reached home, Winy gave me some water. I drank all the water leaving only drops behind. Then the next day Cago told me to sit but I simply stared at his face. Then he made me to sit. He then gave me a treat to eat. Then he taught me “Down”, “Shake” and “No”. He kept trying these commands on me till I got very very tired. Then he gave me water. As soon as he poured the water into my bowl, I licked it clean not leaving drops behind. Again he gave me water and I licked my bowl clean. Then I went to sleep. This time my dream was strange. I was a stray dog!!! when I woke it had turned out that I had been whining. Cago was patting me saying “its alright boy”. Then he said “come” and ran. I chased him so much that I completely forgot about my bad dream. Then he gave me some water to drink. And I drank it down. Then Winy came and held my collar. Cago showed me a treat and threw it!!! Then Winy let me go. I ran behind the treat , my nose to the floor. Finally I got it. But instead of eating it I took it to Cago but he said ‘eat it’ so I ate it. I liked treats. I think they are good for your teeth.
Then Winy got some ropes. She stitched them beautifully making chew toys. That night when everybody was fast asleep I heard a “hoot, hoot!” sound! I got up and immediately started barking. Cago and Winy came running. “What is it?” asked Cago. I looked at the window. There was an owl! Clever boy said Cago. The owl flew away in all this confusion. Cago and Winy laughed and went back to bed. Then I began to bite my chew toys becuase my teeth felt like biting something. The next morning I got up. Then Winy called me. I went to her. In my bowl there was food! I ate it immediately. I saw Cago coming home with a sack. Winy tied that chain on my collar again:-( Then she closed all the windows and doors. Cago opened the sack and meow!meow! A cat jumped out!! It leapt window to window searching for a escape. I started my barking again. But Cago said No. So I stopped. When the cat saw me, it ran and hid under the bed. I also tried to go under the bed but I couldn’t because of my chain. The cat kept meowing probably for its mommy. I heard Cago talking to Winy. He was saying “ I got it from Jack. His cat got some kittens recently and Silks is one of them”. Great, I thought!

Call me Raven. I am a Kanni breed dog. I live with my owners in India. My owners’ names are Winy(who is a female) and Cago (who is a male). They treat me with care. They feed me; they talk with me and they play with me. One day Cago took a strang metal rope thingy. Before that he put a collar around my neck! Then he tied the metal rope on the collar! He took the metal rope in his hand and walked out of the house. Suddenly the chain pulled me behind him! I struggled to escap but it was no use. Finally I stopped and came behind him. Then Cago stopped and gave me a treat. Oh! By the way did I tell you my collar color? Its green. I looked at Cagos face and whined for more treats. But he shook his head.

I was eating lunch with Arjun. He suddenly remembered the scene in “Groundhog Day” where the hog drives the car. He asked ” can they really drive?” I said no. Then He said dogs can drive. I pointed out that the brake, clutch,etc are at the floor level and they cant reach them. He casually mentioned they can if they sit on our laps!
After a while, he said ” appa, there is a problem though. They cant understand our traffic signals.”
You can see fireflies only in the night. You know why? Because in mornings the wind might put off their fire.
