The house was decorated for the special occasion, welcoming all well-wishers as they blessed her with ‘Akshintalu’, applying vermilion on her forehead. Around 30 kids from the neighborhood had also joined the event.
After cake cutting ceremony by Steffi, the guests were treated with sumptuous lunch with dishes like chicken biryani and others.
“All of us love her a lot. We had celebrated her first birthday in October last and all our neighbours were present. This time, when she got pregnant, we thought why not do a traditional ‘seemantham’, as she is very much part of our family,” says Asha.
Adding that the neighboring were not quite surprised by the unique baby shower, she says, “They were really happy to see how a pet dog is being treated like a human being, and not chained outside the home as a guard. Everyone was amazed as they had not heard of anything like this.”
