Upstairs, downstairs

Sona goes upstairs very bravely, but he is afraid of coming down. So many times we were looking for him today. He had gone upstairs and was hiding in Ranjana's office!

The little puppy, Kanu, stays upstairs in the second room. Sometimes he will cry for three or four hours at a time. If I take him out of his bed, for half an hour he will be very nice and quiet. Then he will strive to get a promotion and come up on my bed. But if I bring him up onto my bed, even for two minutes he will not stay in one place. He goes to twenty different places on my bed!

21 January 1982

NOTE: Sona, a white Maltese, was the first puppy that Sri Chinmoy brought home. He was born on 8 March 1981 and passed away on 29 October 1996.

Kanu was a white Bichon Frise puppy. He was born on 17 October 1981 and passed away on 23 December 1992.

Sri Chinmoy later bought two additional dogs: Chela, a Yorkshire Terrier (21 March 1994-25 November 2006); and Gopee, a white Poodle, born on 8 January 2007.
