Dotty stripes...

Nope, these stripes are not crazy; they are perfectly sane and subtle stripes with some dots and some color blocking!
Stripes, along with some dots, made them dotty stripes !

Our first ever pet dog was named, Dotty, just because she had brown dots all over her silky, smooth, pristine white fur coat, when she was a pup. As she grew older, her dots turned into patches and her owners actually thought of changing her name to Patchy, but, fortunately she got to used to the name Dotty and was thus saved from a lifetime embarrassment of having a funny name!!

She was the cutest dog ever, seriously, a Lhasa Apso with a shiny, soft fur coat , droopy ears and  a face that could melt a million iron hearts. We adopted her at the age of two, as her previous owners were moving out of the country and they did not want to take her along! ( I'm so disgusted at the people who treat their pets as a piece of furniture and conveniently disposes them off as needed!)

But, over the time, we realized that she was a little delirious!  She had a weird biting tendency and used to react in an erratic way at times. The vet said that long periods of isolation during her growing up phase and lack of love and care from her previous owners has resulted into a psychological imbalance in her and she was no longer fit for human company.

I still remember the day she was being taken back to the shelter. I was heartbroken and was crying hysterically. That cute little face, that look in her eyes begging to be in our arms-it tormented my little soul and I was miserable for days and months.
That day, my father taught me the meaning of the word dotty and it means crazy or eccentric. I remember my parents were talking about how aptly she was named Dotty, long before she actually became dotty!!
