Rambo My Best Friend

Happy Birthday to Babu
When I was 5, Rambo (Baburam) came to our house. He was only 3 months old, a cute, furry, white little puppy. Soon he started chewing our shoes, papers, our dresses, etc. He always preferred to stay close to us. As he grew up, he became our core family member. I used to call him my brother. He was my best friend too. We played together in the afternoon and holiday mornings.
It is very difficult to realise that death is the ultimate truth. For some it is too short, no matter how deeply he was loved and cared.
Rambo died at the age of 6 years, at 2:00pm on Sunday the 30th Oct 2011.
