‘Toys and a new jacket for our Sunny Boy’
Vishal and Rashmi Handa, professionals with MNCs who live at Sohna Road, Gurgaon, share that their pet is going to have a new jacket and toys as Christmas presents. “Christmas is a time for friends and family. Our three-year-old golden retriever, Sunny Boy, is an integral member of our family and according to our daughter Shreeya, he is often the most pampered one. In our home, if there’s any whiff of a party or celebration, Sunny Boy gets super excited. This year, he is getting a new jacket which says ‘Free kisses’ in addition to the squeaky toys which he loves,” says Rashmi Handa.
