A student with his dog Archie

Q1. Can you tell me something about yourself?

A.  My name is Jay and I am a second-year student at Jai Hind college.


Q2. Can you tell us something about your pet?

A.  I have a dog and his name is Archie. He is a Golden Retriever who is 5 and a half years old. 


Q3. What was it like when you first met him?

A.  When I first met him, he was just 45 days old. He was very playful and I fell in love with him as soon as I saw him. You could say we were meant to be together.


Q4. What was the biggest challenge of being a pet parent?

A.  My biggest challenge was keeping my house clean after I brought him home. He was just like a small baby who used to poop every now and then and I had to run around the house cleaning it. Because of his frequent pooping, my mom wanted to return him back but I decided to take care of him by overcoming all obstacles. I have created a bond with him which can’t be broken.


Q5. What has been the most rewarding part of being a pet parent?

A.  Having a pet has enabled me to go out of my house a lot. I usually take my dog out 3 times a day. His morning walks are always accompanied by me. At times, I take him to Juhu beach and play with him which has helped me to become fit and active.


Q6. What has been a learning experience of being a pet parent?

A.  I have learned the importance of being consistent as I am required to wake up at 6 in the morning to take him out for a walk every day. Another thing I have learned is, like us even our pet has certain likes and dislikes too, as my pet doesn’t like to be walked on a leash. I have taken him for a walk on leash which has landed me in trouble but that’s nothing compared to the happiness he experiences while walking without a leash.



Q7. What message would you like to give to new or aspiring pet parents?

A.  My message is simple, get a pet if you can devote your time and energy to look after them and if you don’t have time for them then it's way better not to have one as it will be a bad experience for you as well as for your dog.
