How far would you go to express your love for your pet dog? For a resident of Tukkanatti village in Karnataka, it will celebrate the pet’s birthday with a 100 kg cake and a huge gathering. A video going viral on the internet shows how a man named Shivappa Yellapa Maradi threw a grand party for the birthday of his Labrador Krish.
The party took place in the southern state’s Belagavi district and according to ANI more than 4,000 people took part. The video shows a table covering a giant spread of cake. Kris, the dog, was in the center of the crowd and wore a purple birthday cap with a gold silk robe around his back. Guest and Shivappa were seen carrying the dog towards the cake. When a person standing next to Kris cut the cake, the crowd started singing the birthday song. Krish was fed a piece of cake.
The video shared on Twitter by the official page of The Lallantop is grabbing the attention of netizens. While some wonder whether it is acceptable to celebrate a dog’s birthday with such pomp, others are quite impressed with the love showered on the dog.
