Scavengers in City

Scavengers in City

I have seen scavengers like crows and feral dogs… Have you seen cows? Cattle are vegetarian by nature. But can you overlook the fact that some amount of meat maybe gobbled up by them, while rummaging through the garbage piles?

Love Me Please (Part 1)

My husband and I love dogs…and so we planned to get a pup when we move into our new apartment in Bangalore. This was about 2 years back.
