He was not what he was!
 
Within a few days of his arrival,I learnt he possessed all the faculties of a human being except speech.
 
You would not have believed what I said about him.Soon after his arrival to our home,rainy season came.Three out of five of our family members fell ill in the climatic change.But he was not.It added to our strength.In fact, holding the purse in his mouth,he ran errands for us to purchase medicines from the medical store,to keep vigil on our health until we recovered and to accompany us when we had no company on our way to shopping.
 
When we were out,he chose to be a watch dog of our home thereby enhancing the security of our home.He never barked unnecessarily unless there was a need.His eating habits too were very decent and never wasted food. Surprisingly, he was on fast on  the first Sunday of every month and didn't take any food or even drink water on that day.
 
To ensure his good health,we had provided him medical insurance too.
 
In short,he was virtually a human being by his sublime behavior,but a dog by his look.So we remained greatful to him until his death two years ago.
 
Even now his demise haunts us as if he was an important family member.We even celebrate his death anniversary every year as a mark of respect to him.
