COWS AND DOGS
DKP was fond of pets and had several varieties of pet dogs including Alsatians, Pomeranian puppies, Rajapalayam, etc. She used to play with them and feed them with her own hands whenever she was at home. One particular dog 'Bina' wouldn't touch food when she was away and would wait for her to return back home.
DKP also had a lot of cows in her shed. She used to name them Kamakshi, Sreedevi, Bhamini, Gowri, etc and when she called them by their names they will lift their ears in response and 'Moo' back. Whenever a cow goes in for labour, she would never leave the cow shed until both the cow and calf are safe, even if it went on for hours.
