I got Rambo and his sister, Meow, when they were 6 weeks old. Meow left us at 11, but Rambo almost made it to his 18th birthday.
He went from a household of six kids to grown ups. He detested dogs, which he was cursed to live with his whole life. He finally accepted his fate this past year.
I work from home so Rambo would keep me company while working on my laptop by putting his paw on my arm. He also waited outside my bedroom door every morning and sat on the chair with me while having my coffee.
He also curled up on the footrest of my reclining chair every evening while I watched tv.
