My darling baby boy Tuffy,

I love you so much. When someone asks me if I own a pet, I always say no. You’re not a pet, and I don’t own you. You’re my brother, and I love you. Granted, you’re a brother that licks and bites me a lot, but that’s just one of your quirks. You’re in India, and I’m studying in America, and you have no idea how difficult it is to be apart from you. Especially since I know that you’re close to 13 years old. I am so, so scared that every time dad tells me that you didn’t eat today, will be the last time I’ll hear about you. I’m so scared that you’ll be gone before I make it home. And I so want to see you, baby boy. But, we both held on, and I’m coming home in less than a week, and I absolutely cannot wait to see you, and play with you, and irritate you. :D

I have had many people tell me that I don’t take care of my dog well, but you’re my brother. And I’ve always treated you as such. Besides, if I hadn’t taken care of you well, how would you be chirpy and sprightly at 13 years old? I wish you could talk, Tuff. I would tell you so much, and you could tell me about you. Every time someone asks me what impossible thing I wish I could have, I reply that I wish you were granted the ability to speak human language for 24 hours. I would tell you how much I love you, and how loved you are. You took an only-child who desperately wanted a protective older brother, and gave her one. You glared at my ex whenever he was home, you sat with me when I was sick and you always let me use you as a pillow. That’s something not even dad can get you to do.

I know that ‘dogs are man’s best friend’ is a saying, but it can’t be more true for you and me. You are an amazing companion, friend and brother, and I love you. Always. If my nightmare comes true, and somehow, I don’t get a chance to say goodbye to you, I hope you know how much I love you. How much we all love you. Mom and dad have raised you like they’d raise a human. Grandma’s loved you like she’s loved me. I’ve loved you, irritated you, played with you, annoyed you, fought with you just like any other brother-sister would. I love you. So, so much.

I will see you in just 7 short days, baby boy. I miss you so much. I’m gonna hug you so much; don’t be alarmed. :)

With all the love in the world,

Your sister, Harshu.
