Her sister was an artist, so it was beneficial for her to travel to various places and explore them. She was okay with having a pet dog in the house, and she decided to support Avi. Now the real task for Avi was his father. They were pure vegetarian, and his father knew that animal needs nov-vegetarian food for proper nutrition and growth. Therefore, his father was strictly against having a pet, and so he hates animals a lot. 

The same evening when his father came back home, he asked him for the pet animal. After listening to his demand, his dad said a clear no. At that moment, Avi didn’t argue with his father. 2-3 days passed, and he was sitting in a park near his house. He saw a puppy who was in pain because of an injured ear. The puppy was weeping. Avi couldn’t stop himself and took it home. Going home, he smeared that puppy with ointment and gave him biscuits to eat. Then he provided that dog a mat to sit in the courtyard of the house.

Moral of the story

Animals have feelings, too, especially dogs. Never let them feel that they are unwanted. Love them as if they are your child. And dogs are just so loyal that you will never be disappointed. Yes, they make a mess in the house. But if you teach them properly, they will go outside the house and do their work. If you love them, then they will love you even more. If you always be displeased with dogs, they will come to bite you, or else he will start fearing you. Animals are also living things, and they also have emotions. So why treat someone terribly? You people can feed bread or biscuits to the dogs roaming on the road. At least to the dogs of your surrounding areas.

All animals deserve affection from humans. What would happen if Deedo had got that wallet but had not recognized whose wallet it was? Avi’s father may not have loved Deedo. But Deedo respected him because he let him stay in the house. Before having a pet, always make sure that you have enough time and money to spend on them and whether your family will accept them wholeheartedly. To feed them daily, taking them for a regular health check-up. Not only that, it is equally important to talk to them every day. Pamper them with love and if they make mistakes, don’t yell at them and never beat them.
