MY LIFE AS TOMMY
Creature Companions|August 2021
My name is Tommy, at least that is what they – my Lord and Master – call out looking at me. I am getting kind of used to this sound and vibration. I find it curious at times, why some human beings big and small want to play with me.

I am generally a quiet dog, however, at times it gets on my nerve when they keep on calling out to me; then I try to threaten them by showing my teeth. I do realize that they feed me and clean me so I must behave to avoid being back-to-the-street situation.

I am short-heighted with white fur.

‘Let me appreciate myself a little’… I crane my neck to look at myself.

Where was I? Oh Yes! My coat is bushy and keeps me warm in winter. You know, my Lord and Masters are kind people. Though they do not allow me in their house, they have built a small place for me. It is made out of wood and covered on all three sides. It is situated above the ground at a height from which I can jump effortlessly. They may have thought that I may fall off while asleep. Their knowledge of dogs, their behaviour and lifestyle is as good as mine of these human beings. To say the least, ‘poor’! My house has padding; if I recognize it rightly, it is the same kind of thing that I saw the other day in a shop where I just sneaked in. They are tall and round in shape filled with something.

My staple diet is something of white stuff mixed with other things. When I eat it, I can easily chew and swallow it. I have found that the taste lies in the kind of liquid they pour into it. If I see something yellowish with no distinct smell my hunger pang vanishes.

THE PET CARE ECOSYSTEM IS ON THE VERGE OF EXPONENTIAL GROWTH AND DISRUPTION

Supertails is your one-stop solution when it comes to pet wellness and health care needs.

The trio, Vineet Khanna, Varun Sadana and Aman Tekriwal, who founded Supertails have worked together in start-ups like Snapdeal and Licious. Vineet and Varun come from IIM Lucknow and Aman is a Chartered Accountant. It did not take long for them to decide that they were not cut-out for big established companies. Vineet with a stint of 5 and half years and Varun with 3 and a half years with Tata and Uniliver respectively started working with start-ups. Their working together in Licious (fresh meat brand) is what triggered a dream of starting off something of their own.

Crane's Beach House

Guest Quarters: A few hours before I checked in, I received a text message that Crane’s Beach House had an opening, and I was upgraded to its luxury villa. Needless to say, I was eager to see what awaited behind the doors of Villa No. 7; the door, by the way, was sealed with a “sanitized and sealed” sticker, and I later found the same sticker sealing the refrigerator door and toilet as well.
