I am a doggo in Nainital

Nainital dog

There are days when I want to walk up to you and scream in your face:
“No one else gets you like I do, now let’s get the hell out of here.”
― Iain S. Thomas

Just another Nainital dog…

I am a doggo in Nainital. The one peeking in from the extreme left. There are things I wish to speak but never do. Like how pleasant it is here amid deodars and grey hovering clouds; all tranquil until the tourists arrive with their blaring horns and beer bottles.

Travelers, I have also liked, but tourists still need to learn.

Just the other day, the broken glass protruded through my paws. It is not as worse as Sheru’s wound which left his hind leg bad for life.

The rains have begun again. The clouds have risen from the valley and I can almost bite into them. Maybe you should try that the next time you visit the hills. Afterall camera filters can’t quite capture the taste. Can they?

With a presence in over 100 countries across six continents, the salt to steel conglomerate Tata Group lives by ethics that are rare to find in the business world. The visitors to their headquarters Bombay House are often in for a surprise when they see stray dogs roaming freely and cared for.

The legend of stray dogs at Bombay House

The stray dogs that live in and around Bombay House, Tata Son’s global HQ, have been welcomed into the building since early days. As the story goes, the dog-loving entrepreneur JRD Tata, on seeing the stray dogs around the building welcomed them in. Since then, in true Tata tradition, the dogs have not been turned away as they find refuge from rain and sun in the building. With Ratan Tata being a dog lover, the JRD wish lives on…

All the dogs at Bombay House have been given names by the security guards and are fed daily. They get regular vaccines and have access to vet care whenever needed. The neighborhood stray dogs are even given a bath and cleaned by an external agency once a week.

The stray dogs were cared for even during the renovation efforts

About a year ago when the senior brass of Tata Leadership moved to a temporary office as renovations were underway at Bombay house. The four-legged residents of the building were also taken along with.

The 94-year-old heritage building has now been revamped but the dogs are still welcomed. The official press release read: “In a first for Bombay House, a kennel has been created for the canine friends who have been an integral part of the building for decades.”

We have Google explicitly mentioning that they are a dog company and also Brewdog, the beer company which celebrates dogs.

Hope other corporate houses also take up such initiative!
