Another Instagram story reads, "We would drive out to Juhu and play fetch with coconuts. He even knew how to blow the car horn. I came home to him, just to lie on the rug and do nothing. I can't call him a pet, he was so much more."

I still come home to two kind souls and meet so many others in and around the office. While few have the comfort of families, many struggles on the streets, and yet somehow, their affection remains the same. Those of you who strive for the welfare of the voiceless, truly have my respect."
