Bodh Gaya (Bihar): Their love knew no boundaries. This is the story of Thai national Fa Tha Nik who has returned to India to take Prince, an ailing German Shepherd she adopted here, back home with her.
"I cannot live without Prince and it appears that Prince also cannot live without me. We love each other like brother and sister," Nik said.
She adopted the dog and kept it at the Buddhist monastery here she helps run. She went back to Thailand a month ago. But soon Prince fell ill. His misery pulled Nik back - she returned Saturday.
"Last week, when I was informed that Prince was ill, I decided to visit Bodh Gaya for its treatment," she said.
She now plans to return to Thailand along with Prince on May 9.
"I had approached the local authorities for the documents required to take Prince to Thailand," she said.
Her bond with Prince is four months old.
"During my visit to the Vajra Bodhi Society here in early January, I was attracted to this dog after he behaved like a friend. It was a different experience. I then decided to adopt and look after him," she said.
