Namitha, who has fallen out of favour with producers and directors after putting on oodles of fat around her waist, is still a hit with the masses and continues to inaugurate many jewellery stores, textile showrooms, etc. in various parts of Chennai and elsewhere in Tamil Nadu. The actress is in the news due to her latest acquisition of a cute-looking puppy from Australia.
Namitha has named her pet puppy as ‘Chocolate’ and takes it to wherever she goes. The lanky actress has always been very fond of bringing up pet animals and birds and loves dogs in particular. She already has a gigantic-looking dog which guards her house round-the-clock.
‘Chocolate’ is a dong belonging to the ‘Shih Tzu’ breed. It possesses long, silky hair and doesn’t grow beyond 10 inches of height. Namitha has brought the dog, which is only 6-weeks old, from Australia. The dog didn’t take much time in realizing its master and has become so close to Namitha.
Talking about the new entrant in her house, Namitha says “I had long been waiting to acquire a cute, small dog which I can comfortably carry with me whenever I go out. My long-held dream has finally come true with the acquisition of ‘Chocolate’ which doesn’t grow tall and would always remain cute. In fact, it’d be traveling with me all the way to my native Surat where I’d be going in a few days’ time!”
