This house in Wayand is protected by 'COVID'
Wayanad: Meenangadi native Lakshmi Amma and grandson, Kichu, of Lakshmi Nivas said that COVID will come running whenever they call its name.
COVID, however, is the name of their puppy. It was born during the pandemic and reached Lakshmi Nivas 3 months back. Kichu found the puppy on the roadside. The puppy was not even old enough to walk when Kichu found it. The puppy was struggling to move around and so he moved it to a safer area next to the road and returned home. However, Kichu was surprised when he saw the puppy in front of his house the next morning.
Lakshmi Amma gave the puppy milk and fish, who came to express its gratitude for Kichu’s kindness.
They did not send the puppy back on the streets then. Within a few days, the puppy became the darling of the household. They family started to call him COVID. Within a few days, COVID started running around in the house energetically. Currently, COVID behaves as the security guard of the house.
