Bozoical Fashion

Bozo, Mumbai's only dog-with-his-own-blog is back !   His mentor and chronicler , Magiceye, recently captured him in one of his  quieter moments.

Mumbai has been having a strange winter.  Temperatures colder than we have seen, and just when you think it is winter,  you face a sudden hot day  and start sweating. Bozo doesn't just take naps, but is a keen observer of things around him, and he even watches TV sometimes.  He doesn't watch all the Election brouhaha, or the excitements in New Delhi or Cricket  Debacles.

There is so much more to life ....

in Mumbai's toniest suburbs
has its moments....

Lying at the master's feet
as he watches TV,
I heard someone talk about
Kids India Fashion Week,
where small kids
walked the ramp.

I can see
a day, when
they will have
Canine India Fashion Week
and folks like
my friends Moti and Boris
will do a show
wearing bow ties,
and Lassie of Carter Road Fame
will fight
to be a showstopper
and walk with a smirk,
her Hill Rd Jackets.

Me ?
I lead a simple life.
When its cold,
I do push-ups,
holding on to the window sill,
or balcony railing,
as I await
my master's return;
and when its hot,
I do
an inverse Shavaasan
on the
cool marble floor,
cooling my nostrils
a rotating fan...

These guys have a Fashion "Weak"....

Mine is a special Bozo Strong !


  1. Bozo would have loved it. Hope Deepak reads it out to him :) And I do believe they have canine fashion shows abroad. :D

    1. Thank you for your comment....I can just see Bozo looking quizically at the laptop screen, wondering if its a mirror :-)) ....

  2. Oh, yes! Bozo would love it! I, too, hope Deepak reads it to him! I read it to Sam Schnauzer! He loved it!


    1. Sylvia, Thank you ! Maybe someone can take a photo of Deepak reading out the poem to Bozo!

  3. Oh yes, there are fashion shows for dogs in the US. I don't think there are any in Canada. We're rather quiet, and so are our dogs, although Lindy is pretty proud of her snow-boots, a necessity in most Alberta winters, but not very much this year (yet).
    Lindy is so glad you're writing about Bozo, because he is her favourite dog in all of India.
