So yesterday I finished playing the main storyline for RDR, heartbreaking sh*t. I couldn't help noticing how lucky little Rufus was. By the end he might not be dead (there would be a grave right besides Uncle's). He might have died sometime during the 1920s.
I haven't played this mission arc in a long time, but I couldn't help noticing that the talking dog (which I know is a Lassie reference) was a Labrador. Could it be Rufus's ghost?
