Death refused to give me a small win for Golu.

Golu was my pet for the last 7 years. He was instrumental in saving us from deep despair in those dark days when we were fighting the battle against the imminent death of our son. He was the symbol of love and hope for us. His energy and affection was a source of inspiration. A pet can be so valuable for our emotional life...
He went away to eternity yesterday. With his damaged liver, body getting all the toxins and Golu refusing to take the food or the medicines orally, we had slender chance of saving him. Injections prolonged his life only for a few days.
still, I did not want to give in easily. In the early morning hours we took him in a rickshaw to
Vet-Hospital. We talked to the doctor and persuaded to come to the hospital immediately. Golu was not moving even his eyelids. His temperature was dropping. He was barely breathing. The medical attention made some minor difference. We brought him home and in 1 1/2 hours he was gone beyond the body limits. Death did not give me a chance to win the battle for his life even for a few days.
Golu or Golu Pandey (he was son to me) will live in my memories forever.

I am very sorry to hear about your Golu's death.It must be a very painful time for you, specially when you go home there is no wagging tail, no one making you feel you are the most important and the most loved person on this earth. Please accept my condolences.My family has gone through this experience four times.Rarely a day passes without thinking about them.
Yesterday there was a post "kutta mat kahiye'at http://anuraagmuskaan.blogspot.com/2007/04/blog-post_14.html. I have written a comment there. I think you would agree me on that.

Oh Madam, Golu Pandey was not my dog. He was my son. Thinking of him always brings tears in my eyes.

एक दुखद: घटनाक्रम.
सच है, पता ही नहीं चलता, कब ये मूक प्राणी, परिवार के अन्य सदस्यों से भी अधिक प्रिय हो जाते हैं.
