Roger was not part of our life…he was our life. After his sudden demise, my elder son Arjun phoned me and said they had lost a brother. Roger, the sheer joy that you brought into our lives, right until your end at 1145 hrs Friday, the 13th May 11, will be everfresh since you touched our lives in a myriad happy ways. Arjun said that you would have never wanted to see us sad. We shall learn to get out of this mood at your sudden departure. We know, our darling, that you came into our lives simply to Love and Cherish. And both you and us have more love left to shower on one another when we meet next.
We have a whole new vovabulary because of you; a routine of the day we can’t get out of…we shall miss moving our hands in your fur and giving a gentle squeeze to your ears…we shall miss taking you for walks and playing with you..and hugging you and holding you tight.
Other day, a friend asked me, Roger, why do we miss our pets so much when they go? My prompt reply: Because, unlike our friends, relatives, sons and daughters, pets don’t have any independent life. Their total life is with us and for us. A dog loves us more than he loves himself.
Thank you, Roger, for teaching us how to Love.
We shall never forget you, our baby.
|All set to receive Prashad|
|How you loved to be taken for a ride, Roger?!!|
|Always looking for cool places.|
|Scared of Diwali crackers and hiding|
|Always loved his bath|
|Not liking Papa being busy in Paranayam|
|Enjoying music in Arjun’s room|
|Always being where the family is|
|“Enjoying” a movie with Arun
Come any festival or occasion, you will somehow again get into the scene and the pictures…
When we enter the house, we shall know you are waiting for us at the door…..
Wait for us, Roger; we shall join you there one day and then we shall again be a loving family together; loving one another like you taught us to.
