If you read my blog from last week, he is no stranger to you .
But allow me introduce you to the newest, furriest member in my: Frodo, the golden retriever puppy. This little bundle of happiness has turned my world upside down in the most delightful way possible in the last seven days.
Frodo is basically a fluffy tornado in a fur coat. His chew game? Let's just say he's the master at retrieving everything but the actual toy – socks, shoes, and once, my formal trouser I planned to wear that day to the office! I’m just grateful he hasn’t smuggled my mobile phone yet!
Mealtime with Frodo is a high-stakes negotiation. His puppy eyes are like laser beams, melting my resolve to keep my snacks to myself. Resistance is futile; I'm convinced he's studying mind control in his spare time. His big, sparkly eyes hypnotize me into sharing my snacks. I am trying hard to be as stealthy as a ninja to Frodo's puppy eyes that could guilt-trip a stone into feeding him. I'm pretty sure he’s honed his persuasive tactics from veteran salesmen. Once I relent, he celebrates with a victory lap around the living room, as if he just won an Olympic gold medal in "begging for treats."
He doesn't believe in titles. I might have got a promotion to a Director role. But to him, I am his personal Buttler who is always at his command. Make him his breakfast, lunch, post-lunch, snacks, pre-dinner and dinner (phew!). Clean the floor of his showerings (Yeah, the 2Ps, Pee and Potty). And his fitness agent to ensure he burns calories so that he can enjoy his 6 meal diet for the day!
Living with Frodo is like having a 24/7 comedy show. He's the chief mischief officer, turning every corner of my home into a slapstick stage. His endless enthusiasm for exploring the world (our house), coupled with his adorable clumsiness, never fails to bring a smile to my face.
Life with Frodo isn’t just about having a pet; it’s about having a daily dose of laughter, love, and a cuddly companion who brings immeasurable joy into every moment making me wonder "How lucky am I to have him in my life".
