A REAL-LIFE DOG STORY There is a well-to-do household in the picturesque hill station of Mussoorie, which has seven members; Mother, Father, Son No.1, SonNo.2, Grandmother, Grandfather and the dog Hitler. This is Hitler’sstory.Son No.1 was ten years old when his brother, Son No.2 was born. So,he said to his parents, “Now we only need a puppy to complete thefamily.” His mom said, “Look, that’s not gonna happen. I will goback to work once your brother is a few months old and you willhave to help to keep an eye on him. Who will have time to look afterthe dog?”Son No.1 pleaded, “I will manage everything mom. Just please agreeto get a dog, please!!!”Father intervened, “Listen son, getting a dog would be a bigresponsibility. He will need to be bathed, fed, vaccinated, taken forwalks and what not!”Son No.1, “But dad you are a veterinarian! With you around, howcan taking care of a dog be a problem? You do help mom around thehouse, especially when she is away at work. We will all manage, dad,please! PLEASE!”Cornered by the incessant pleading, Mother and Father promisedSon No.1 that they would get a dog as soon as they had built a biggerhouse, in which the dog would not be a nuisance to anyone. Pacified,Son No.1 agreed to be patient.Five years went by…..the large four-storey house was ready and SonNo.1, now 15 years old, started hounding his parents about thepromise they had made of ‘completing the family’.
