I cried for weeks when my pet died: Anoop Menon
Anoop Menon posted an old picture of himself in his younger days, with a huge German Shepherd beside him. The dog was apparently his beloved pet, who he loved so much that when it died, he decided not to get another pet again. “Achan send me this from an old album…law college days..our terrace in tvm ..with the one and only pet i had … for weeks i cried when he died and thereafter stuck to the decision not to have pets anymore..the pangs are equal to that of losing a dear fellow human …” he wrote.
The actor’s post has been inundated by comments by people relating similar experiences when their pet died. “Very true! My dog’s death was the first time I realised how cruel death and loss can be!! It’s been 10 years now but there’s not a single day I don’t think abt her,” went a comment, while another follower suggested he get another pet, ” Dear Anoop you have to rethink as ur decision on not owning another dog is not what your dog might have wanted. There are many dogs in this world left uncared. You can adopt one or you can own another and love him like your old dog. As a tribute to your dog who teached you what unconditional love is. To all those who are sticking to the decision of not owning another is just disrespecting your old one.
