Our lives today are not dominated by our parents, children or partners. It is infact our four – legged mates who rule our world. What the pooch eats, his grooming, health and everything about him are of utmost priority to pet parents today. Gone are the days when dogs were kept as mere animals, today they are important family members. And with this status bestowed on them, dogs too have their own fancies and settle for nothing less than the best.

Writing is a passion I discovered a little late. But better late than never. When not penning my thoughts, you'll find me sniffing around for good food - trying out every new restaurant in town is a hobby. I swear by Hindi films and when doing nothing of the above you'll find me troubling my pet pooch.
