A Story About Gemini

Yesterday was 4 years since my angel Gemini died as a result of a head injury. This accident left me with PTSD and I remember the summer of 2010 being the darkest and heaviest of my life.

4 years later, I can sometimes even smile when I think about her and the 6 great years we had together.

Today, instead of feeling sad, I will share a funny, happy, Gemini story. It is one of my favourites.

I got the bright idea that we should put Gemini in agility as Hailey enjoyed it.  Gemini, who truly was a little princess, wasn't so sure. She definitely didn't like to over exert herself. She would do it, she was obedient enough. However, she was in no hurry to do it. She moved in slow motion while doing it. It cracked us all up! I remember our trainer saying she had never seen a dog go so slowly through agility. We all referred to it as "Gemini speed." For someone like me who is so uncoordinated agility is hard as a handler, Gemi was the perfect dog to work with. I had time to remember what was coming next.

Here are a few pictures of our angel trying it out.

She may have moved slow but she could jump

I think her face here shows how thrilled she was about being there

She was excellent at the table, it was definitely her speed, although she would have preferred it with a pillow!

    Oh these are adorable memories - and it is definitely the princess look! Hugs, YAM xx

  3. Such a cutie, I'm sorry you had to go through such a traumatic loss. Losing our dogs is always a heartbreak but even worse when unexpected and at a young age. Now since Toby is in beginner agility I can relate to the difficulty of keeping up on the course. I need Toby to go at Gemini-speed but he is more of a racer which has led to funny moments in class - me jumping the jump instead of him, or getting my legs tangled from trying to go in 3 directions at once. These are wonderful photos.

  4. many thanks for sharing your memories.... Gemini acted really like a Princess, maybe it wasn't agility but "Elegantily" ?
