The word rex is a Latin word. It meant king. I named him Rex. He lived regally and died royally. He was born on August 1994 in a rich family resided in a posh area in Bangalore city, Karnataka State, India. As he grew up, I was told, he began to howl and bark very often. The retired hands and the elders residing nearby objected to his behavior at night. The owner gave him up to the animal shelter. The director of the shelter contacted me as I was searching for a watch dog for my farm. I rushed to the shelter. At the first sight I fell in love with him. I brought him home on May 1996. My wife and son were away in Kerala. I had no living maid. I was alone at home.
