Remembering Gemini

Tomorrow will be 5 years since Gemini died in an accident (I think of it as a friendly fire incident). The guilt and pain around her death still is fresh in my heart. I have accepted that I will never 100% recover from her loss.  I still can barely talk about her, but am looking past my pain to remember my beautiful angel and share her with others.

This picture was taken about 9 days after Hailey joined our pack. It was taken during a storm. Gemini was trying to comfort Hailey. Gemi was a very snuggly dog and she and her best friend Loki had snuggled all the time. Gemi mourned Loki forever, but did try and make our Hailey her substitute love. As you can see Lee wasn't too sure about it.

  11. Sending hugs to you. I think the tragic deaths are sometimes the hardest to get over, no, you don't get over them. Our Lab mix Maggie died 12 years ago and I will never completely forgive myself for how it happened (she was hit by a car when in the care of our neighbor, but if I hadn't left her there.....). My only solace is that I have forgotten the exact date, though I know it was summer. I hope you can find some solace somewhere. Gemi was beautiful and what a sweet photo!

  14. I'm so sorry for such a traumatic loss. Gemini looks like such an incredible sweetie. Some deaths can never be "gotten over". My first dog was murdered with a gun 25 years ago on July 27 - and I still can barely talk about it. At least the murderer was prosecuted severely.

    Here's to sweet memories for you of your Gemini. Hugs to you.

  20. We had a "friendly fire" incident at our house too just over 7 years ago involving my precious DeeDee so I do understand the pain and guilt you feel. It never goes away. But take comfort in knowing that Gemini is always in your heart as well as looking down and watching over you from the Bridge.

  22. Tragic deaths leave scars in a place in our hearts, that is often hard to travel too. We have talked about this before, and each time it never gets much easier does it? Its a different type of loss, and its hard to wrap our brains around it let alone, ease our hearts. There are memories of comfort though, and happiness, there are times we even let ourselves feel them. Hugs from Deb
