WHEN AND HOW DID TOFFIEE COME IN YOUR LIFE? IS SHE YOUR FIRST PET?
I have always been fond of pets since I was a toddler. I used to feed and bring new dogs every now and then. Then one day my parents decided to gift me a puppy on my birthday when I was in the fifth standard; her name was Milli. After she passed away due to food poisoning, I decided not to get any more pets.
When I was in the third year of my engineering, I went to see a puppy for my friend and ended up bringing Toffiee home. I already had an experience of having pets; I was pretty much comfortable but I was not aware of breed-specific requirements. Shih Tzu breed requires a lot of care and attention, which I struggled to provide in the initial days but later I started learning.
Fortunately, I also have Toffiee’s baby now and I’ve named her – Grace!
WERE YOU LOOKING FOR A PARTICULAR BREED WHEN YOU THOUGHT OF BRINGING HOME A PET?
Bringing Toffiee was so sudden decision that I didn’t get a chance to look for the breed. I have one more pet Candy, whom I got from a friend. When I got to know that they have Cocker Spaniel breed, I started searching about them, their requirement, and temperament. When I was sure that yes I can give a better life to the pup, I brought her home.
AS YOU JUST MENTIONED YOU HAVE ANOTHER PET CANDY ALONG WITH THE MOTHER-DAUGHTER DUO, TOFFEE, AND GRACE. HOW IS THE RAPPORT AMONG THREE OF THEM?
Candy is such a friendly pup that I never had to worry. Candy is like a second mother to Grace. She loves Grace as much as Toffiee loves her. They eat, play, and sleep together. In fact, Grace has a similar temperament like Candy; it makes easier to have them around.
WHAT IS TOFFIEE'S DIET AND HOW DO YOU TAKE CARE OF HER NUTRITION? IS THERE ANY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TOFFIEE, GRACE, AND CANDY'S DIET?
