CHENNAI: At a recent ‘Petcialize’ event in the city, close to 30 dogs with their human families got a chance to ‘make merry’ with everything from gift wrapped presents under the tree to scampering around a group of carollers. And Rohit Koliyot, who organises these get-togethers every month for families with pets, told us that for once, it was the owners who were more excited than their dogs. After all, how often do pet owners get to have their doggies join in the Christmas spirit with fellow pet owners? “Everybody was asked to bring a present, either for a human or a pet, and this was placed under the Christmas tree,” Rohit explains. Held in a beautiful old house, off Kasturi Rangan Road, with bright lights and tinsel, (and festive doggie collars adding to the decor) — this was one of those tail wagging Christmasses that we were rest assured won’t be forgotten for a long time.
