THE DOGGY NOMENCLATURE

Usually pet-dogs become the target either rejoicing or mourning. It starts with the name of the dog and extends to its vasectomy. History has seen a lot of controversies where dogs are named after celebrities. Most of the victims are from white-house or hollywood. Here is the most recent and least distant issue. Aamir Khan, in his blog (www.aamirkhan.com), says "Shahrukh is licking my feet and I am feeding him biscuits every now and then. What more can I ask for?"

He adds "Now, before you jump to any conclusions let me add that Shahrukh is the name of our dog. And before you jump to any further conclusions let me add that I had nothing to do with naming him. In fact Shahrukh is the dog of the caretakers of our house. When I bought this house it came with the caretakers and their dog! Apparently Shahrukh (the actor) was shooting for a commercial in this house a few years ago, and that very day the caretakers bought a pup…, and named him Shahrukh."

He claims "What are the chances of me buying a house which comes with a dog called Shahrukh!!! Some of my friends claim that I bought the house just because of the dog. I would have to be a serious fan of Shahrukh’s to want to do that. Your guess…". His finishing goes here "Well Shahrukh is once again begging for my attention, so let me get back to him. He is smelling too much, I think he needs a bath." The most interesting thing is he told all these while narrating about his new house Panchgani, which is 5000 feet above sea level among the Sahyadri mountains.

Will this come under the scope of Blue Cross? Now, before you jump to any conclusions let me add that this question is for Sharukh, the dog and certainly not for Sharukh, the actor.
