Imaginary Friend.Many of us had imaginary friends as young children. If your imaginary friend grew up alongside you, what would his/her/its life be like today? (Didn’t have one? write about a non-imaginary friend you haven’t seen since childhood.)
I always wanted man’s oldest friend as my friend. The love it has for you is unmatched. Unfortunately for this very reason I never had a dog as pet. My dad has an incident when his was a child. It was not easy for him to handle the loss of his friend. So to preempt my heart-break, my parents unanimously opposed of having a dog as pet. I was a victim of this classic case of protective parenting!
My closest association with a dog was when I stayed in Coimbatore. My neighbour had a young Dalmatian. Only then I realised the amount of care you have to give a dog. Poor fellow chewed up something and payed several trips to the vet. My neighbour too had sleepless nights! But when it came home after complete recovery I had sleepless nights because it never stopped barking all night!
So this post is to you, my imaginary perro!
