Bruno Gangopadhyay

Suchisneil's Uncle


Neil's Uncle


Born 1983
Passed 1996

Bruno was our little brother. Born March 3, 1983, Bruno was brought into the Gangopadhyay household on the auspicious occasion of Sandipan's Upanayan ceremony.

Bruno's father, Akbar, was an Indian Kennel Club Champion in Mumbai. His mother, the Queen of Sheba, was owned by family friends and a Delhi Champion.

Bruno passed away in Navi Mumbai in 1996 after battling cancer for almost a year.

Bruno was a very happy, lovable and sensitive member of the family. In tune with every family member's mood and feelings, he would go out of his way to support them and take care of them.

On the other hand, right up to his 13 year (91 doggie years?) age, he behaved pretty much like a lap dog. He had to be spoon fed, and expressed any sadness by going on a fast. He needed a lot of hugs and kisses. He sat and ate at the family dining table, wrote poetry and used the rest room facilities when the weather wasn't fair.

Bruno and his memories are cherished by the Gangopadhyay family and even by the kids. Only Suchisman actually saw him and he was only a year old when Bruno passed away. We believe Bruno is always with us and continues to look after us every step of the way.
