While they were away, their oldest dog, Garbo, was bitten by a baby cobra at their farm in Kalote. The only vet around treated Garbo like he treated cattle and he almost died before an SOS call to their lawyer, Sridhar Gorthi, brought them a saviour in a stranger, Sameer Vohra, who not only saved their dog, but ended up becoming a good friend.
