As they say “Angels are often disguised as dogs”; such is our ‘Pet of the Month’, ANGEL – heavenly, divine, and purest soul! Palak Mattoo, her mommy, shares how Angel brought her family to life with her love and affection. Every time they see her, her playful antics fill them with joy and happiness. Excerpts…

When did you bring Angel into your life? Is she your first pet?

Angel Mattoo came in my life on 6th April, 2018. Yes, she is my first pet but my family and I don’t consider her like a pet – she is like our family member. She is the purest soul on earth, I’ve ever known!

‘Angel’… Is there any story behind this name?

In 2018, my grandfather expired due to which my grandma was very depressed. We all were so worried about her but by God’s grace Angel came to our life! Suddenly, in couple of days everyone was happy and full of joy due to Angel. She was a God sent gift for us, so we named her angel.

What is Angel’s diet like? What do you generally feed her?

Personally, I prefer natural and homemade food in Angel’s diet. I generally feed Angel with boiled boneless chicken rice putting lots of veggies in it. Sometimes, I also feed her with boneless fish, eggs, liver meat, rice, and veggies.

Do you take her along when you travel?

Angel has travelled a lot with me and my family. She loves to explore every moment of the journey. Recently, on New Year we went to Patnitop to see snowfall for the first time and Angel’s reaction was out of this world! She was more excited than me. She was full of enthusiasm! We both enjoyed a lot in this trip.

What is her favourite playtime activity?

Being a hyperactive dog, she loves to play hide and seek and tug of war. 

How do you choose products for Angel’s grooming and hygiene needs? Which products are you currently using?

As a pawparent, I mostly prefer products that are highly recommend or rated by other pet parents too. I am very conscious about Angel’s hygiene and grooming needs. Currently, I am using Virbac oatmeal shampoo and ear cleaner, which gives best result on Angel’s coat, ear, and skin. In toothpaste, I use Dentopet; for her paw’s softness, I love Intas paw lotion and my most favourite virgin coconut oil for her dry skin.

From where do you like to shop for her?

I like to purchase products from Amazon, Doggie Bazaar, Flipkart, and her vet’s clinic.

Summarize your bond with Angel.

Angel has a charming personality; wherever she goes, she makes her surroundings more beautiful. Angel and I share a very special bond like mother and daughter. She is the apple of my eye and has just enlightened my life with her aura.
