Chimi is here ~~


Chimi Anjali, my baby.

The story goes like this...

I was looking for a pup to bring home and chanced on Amy. I smsed Karan to ask if Amy had found a home yet? He called up to tell that I had missed her. She had found a home just last week. Then he mentioned that there is one pup at Anand Chhaaya. It was really sweet of Karan to get me connected with Jayshree. She sent me the picture below.


The black coat reminded me of my Pom, Ebony. I was looking for a baby she looked big. I was concerned a bit if she would be comfortable in my small house. I however needed her. There was something pulling inside me the moment I saw her pic. All this happened yesterday.

This morning I was eagerly waiting to talk to Jayshree. She briefed me about her story. She was born near a bakery and the bakery owner and his wife cared for her. Then one day Jayshree heard that a car had run over the pups foot. She rushed her to the vet put her foot in a cast. After that incident she kept her in her home and she has been with her since then. She is about 3-4 months old.

I fixed up with Jayshree and her family decided to come over to my place with her. I decided to go meet them on the main road so it would be easy for them to find my home. As soon as I met her in the car itself she was all over me. I loved her instantly!!

She is a beauty with a shiny coat. Jayshree had already put a collar on her and she shashayed around my house as soon as she entered. She took to my Dad easily too.

She was not as big as she looked in the picture that made me more happy because I want to build a bond right from the young age. She will grow with me now.




Though she reminded me of Ebony I did not want to give her the same name. She is an Indian mix breed showing traces of a lab is what Jayshree says. So I named her Chimi, after the beautiful Katkari girl who came to my village to sell Karvanda when we were kids.

Chimi is short for Chimney (Marathi) or sparrow I think. It has so much love in its sound.

So here is Chimi dear friends!! Chimi Anjali like Anjali Narayan as is the South Indian tradition.

Thanks Karan. A ton of thanks for Jayshree and family!!!

  19. Hi Anjali,
    Actually need some help from you. Was surpirsed to hear a mention of Karan and when I checked out the name I realised he is a close friend's hubby, the same couple who I know very well. I am a regular follower of your food blog! Anyway, a close friend of mine from Mumbai has found some really cute pups which are up for adoption. She is trying to find a home for them. Tried finding your email ID on this blog but couldn't, so writing it as a comment. Could you pass on the word please. Location is Mumbai. Thanks!
