Grandma Tico

by Saumya
(Sri Lanka)

You were dumped near our gate in 1999 July by someone who knew that you were going to be taken care of. But we did not want to keep you as we had seven dogs with us.

We asked our fisherman to take you to some place. When that man came to take you, you were fast asleep in a little box that I kept for you to sleep. My heart sank when I saw you there so I decided to keep you with us.

From that day till last Monday (21st May 2012) you were living with us. You were sometimes a mother to my other little dogs, sometimes a grandmother.

You had a very good life with us. At the last stage, when you were sick and could not move your legs, we all took care of you, specially my niece Dhanya and nephew Onesh and my son Dulran.

They all miss you, Dear Tico, and I miss you so much.

May you attain supreme bliss of Nirvana.

Bye for now.
