Monty- We love you and will forever

I write this from my heart and hope it reaches you wherever you are. You came to us well matured but did not have any problems in adjusting with us. Your colour golden brown made you shine like the precious metal itself. You are precious and will me. I remember the moments which you made it special for us. You made us wanted. Stood for us patiently to return home. You were the jewel of my aunt and shared a special relation with her. She cried like a child when you, her child, left us all. You left a void which will never be filled.

We never left you alone at home for you would start crying if you didnt see us for some time. And now how can you leave us forever? We fell your presence everywhere at home. The place where you used to sleep in my room is so empty now. In the mornings you used to wait to get into my room. You responded to everything that we spoke. You were not an animal. You were a human for me. My friends, students and girlfriend were so fond of you. They too are sad hearing about your demise.

And when we used to bring sweets and ice-cream, you used to glued by us. When I used to have my favorite dish- biriyani, used to wait for me to finish to have the bones. You were no pet to us. You were family. We will never get anybody so faithful and honest. That is why we never used to tie you up. You knew where your home was. And in this home you have created a vacuum. Christmas is coming and I still remember how you used to love having the cakes. 

When strangers came you cautioned us yet you didnt give any signal that you would leave us. May be even in death you didnt want to disturb us. Im sorry Monty I cudnt help you. Death is bad ! I hope to meet you once again when I die. It was sad to see your lifeless body sail in the Ganges, the very body which extended to me a handshake. You were so dutiful and obedient. I pray that you be in peace wherever you are. And Im sure you would be in the presence of good company as here on earth you were immaculate. You bowl, neck strap and towel are all there. I take the responsibility of doing the mistake of not keeping a picture of you. But I assure you that You will be always in Our memory and prayer.Wish you were here too....

Not from your master but your brother.
Love you Monty !
You were a Gem of a friend !


  1. i truely can feel what you went through.........last 11th of december 2012, i also lost shelly, she was with us since the last 12 years i.e. since i was in class -8. now i am working even done with my college, matured enough to understand that nothing is forever but still its really unbearable to accept the loss of one's loved ones.......... me and my sister was never as pampered as she was, when she came to our place, she was of only 21 days old......she shared my pillow at night....and gradually became my cushion whom i used to hug while i slept.........even when she woke up, she never used to move to avoid waking me up........we all miss her........though we bought a new male lab on 1st feb 2013(his b'day was on 31st dec 2012) now she is about to complete 3 months----his name is cimba. we wanted to bring in cimba as it was becoming impossible to enter the house at the end of the day and finding no1 waiting at the door step & running up to us, it was all the more painful for my mom who was all alone at home the whole day long..........we never missed her like mom did..........although cimba is pampered as the same way as we did for shelly but the vaccume that she created, can be filled by none.........her place will always be hers..........it is unsubstitutable........i really hope that shelly is having a gala time with monty up there and wish that both of their's souls rest in peace.........:-)

  2. Thank you Samarpita for understanding my feelings. I hope both our loved ones are at peace.
