And here is Rupa's story, in his own words~
My name is Rupa. A strange name, I know, but my parents tell me it’s a name from a far-off place called ‘Nepal’, where they spent their honeymoon.
I’m a lucky dog. I get to play a lot with friends at daycare. I get to go to school and learn all kinds of new things. But mostly, I’m lucky because I get to make a difference for my family. I came to this family just before my grandma died and I could tell that made everyone sad. I decided that it was up to me to keep everyone smiling and laughing during their grief. So I just keep acting silly, giving them big slobbery kisses and the best part is, they keep giving me treats every time I do it!
