A newborn puppy was discovered in a mushroom patch whimpering and alone. Ali Larsen was traveling in India at the time, when she found and rescued him.
She nursed the tiny puppy back to health and decided to take him with her while she trekked through the country.

Here is her story of their amazing adventures together!
“I recently spent five months in India. While I was there I came across this remarkable little creature,” said Ali.
“With his Umbilical cord still attached and his eyes and ears both shut, he was whimpering behind a mushroom patch.”
“I got a syringe from the medical clinic and some goats milk from the goat farm and tried to feed him.”
“It seemed to work.”
“He ate and he slept…”
“… and ate and slept…”
“…and ate and slept…”
“I named him Kaalan (the Tamil word for mushroom).”
“He ate so much he almost weighed a pound!”
“After three weeks, he opened his eyes!”
“He went to the vet with roosters and goats.”
“And then came the fun…”
“He came on road trips.”
They went to the Nilgiri Mountains…
To Tea Plantations…
And Varkala Beach…
…where he was pretty popular.
He saw The Avengers in 3D.
And went to his first bar.
He swam in the Arabian Sea.
And lounged by the pool.
“And then came his biggest trip of all…first we flew from Coimbatore to Delhi where Kaalan had to be cleared by a quarantine officer,” said Ali.
“My dad put us up in the Hyatt in Delhi.”
“And then came the tough one…40 hours in cargo and 40 hours apart from him 🙁 Delhi to Toronto.”
“But he made it…reunited in Toronto!”
“He is a wonderful addition to my life in Canada!”
What wonderful adventures Kaalan and Ali went on together before arriving home!
