Dog Eating Gol Gappe: This Video of a Pet Enjoying Pani Puri is too Cute for Words
There is no denying the fact that Indians love ‘street food’. From ‘Aloo Chaat’ to ‘Radga Pattice’ and ‘Bhel Puri’ and ‘Sev Puri’, each region in India has its own unique street food varieties. Among these, one of the common ‘chaat’ items that is enjoyed across India is the humble ‘Paani Puri’, as it is called in Mumbai. It is also known as ‘Gol Gappa’ in the north and as ‘Puchhka’ in West Bengal. Its recipe varies from state to state, but it generally comprises of a hollow puri filled a tangy and spicy chutney (commonly called as ‘pani’), potatoes and chickpeas. And it seems like not just the people, but dogs too are a fan of this tasty treat. A video of a pet dog in Punjab eating ‘gol gappe’ is being circulated online and has already garnered the affection of both street food as well as dog lovers.
The short video clip of about 1.12 minutes shows the dog standing next to a street food stall and eagerly looking at the pani puris stacked against the counter. He is accompanied by two ladies at least. While one of them is feeding him the puris, the other is presumably shooting the video. The lady who is feeding him also prompts the stall owner to add more pani to the puris. Needless to say, the doggie is loving the ‘gol gappas’ and the affection being showered on him.

Interestingly, earlier this year, a video of a cow eating ‘gol gappe’ had gone viral too. In the video, a cow and her calf were enjoying ‘gol gappe’ and it was absolutely adorable. While these videos are entertaining to watch, it also draws our attention to an important point of caring for the animals. Learning about their likes, dislikes and treating them to their favourite foods (of course, if it is good for their health) is something everyone should attempt to do.
