Dear HuffPost, Thanks For Speaking Up For Me This Diwali



Dear HuffPost team,

Hello there!

My name is Layla and I am a four-year-old Great Dane girl. I wanted to thank you for urging everybody to say no to firecrackers this Diwali. They hurt my ears a lot. You all are superheroes for me definitely. Yay!

I think many have listened to you because the noise levels are not that deafening. But for those who aren't cool enough and insist on bursting crackers, I found a way to beat them! I am listening to Led Zeppelin on my Mom's Sennheiser headphones!

Did I tell you that I was adopted from Friendicoes three years back? My previous humans had left me tied to the park bench near the shelter at night. They told me I was ugly because I had a skin problem. They also said that I ate a lot and so were starving me. Sometimes they beat me too.

But that is all in the past. My forever Mom loves me to bits. She named me Layla after the Eric Clapton song. I guess I am a rocker chick now.

That is all for now as my Mom is yelling for dinner. It is luchi, alu dum and kheer.

Lots of woofs,
