It occurred to me the other day, that you may be sitting on your spots on the mantle wondering "WTF?" The lives of the dogs who live with us now live very different lives from the ones you both lived. When you were with us, you ate good food; You got lots of walks and play time; You had ample toys; There were always treats in the house; You got dressed up less.
The changes in the house started when Loki died in 2010, and I realized how short my time was with each of my dogs. It changed when I met Hailey, a dog who had very different needs then either of you. It changed as I started blogging and a whole world of dog products opened up to me. It completely changed when Gemi died in 2011.
|Gemini and Loki|
The love I feel for Hailey and Zaphod is different from my love for both of you. Loki, you will always be my first dog, and my special little guy. Gemi, you will always be my princess. I just wanted you to know that even though I was slightly less of a crazy dog Lady with you, I didn't love you any less.
Missing you both every day
Lovely to remember Loki and Gemi so fondly. Lee and Phod are so lucky to have you. Have a super Saturday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
We may get different THINGYS butt fur sure the one thingy we ALL get is our peep's LOVE. THAT is what REALLY counts, isn't it?ReplyDelete
Such a sweet post. Our beloved critters always live on in our heart and memories.ReplyDelete
Yep, Mom & Dad are the same way, they talk all the time about passed puppers and how we do things to remind them. They have learned much over the years about the love between us and them, and how they should have been the spent more with each. But we know they tried very hard to spoil each and every one!ReplyDelete

Nicely written post.
Your lovely post made my mom's eyes leak. I had a brother before me that she hopes knows how much she loved him!!ReplyDelete
Having had dogs since I was five years old and having every type of dog...one thing I know for sure is you love all them - each in their own unique way and it hurts like helll each time you lose one. And each time you swear you will never go through that again...but you do - because there is nothing to compare to the unconditional love dogs can give and receive.ReplyDelete
How very, very sweet.....I often think of the sweet cats who I have residing now over the Bridge and all that they taught me about acceptance, patience, flexibility, caring for cats, and most of all love. I miss them all the time......little things will make me think of them - Sammy is different from any other cat I've had before in almost EVERY way so yet again, I learn even more.......unconditional love from a pet is just plain THE BEST. I know Gemini and Loki watch you with Hailey and Zaphod and see that indeed they taught you well about many things.....like the love we feel for our animals stays on and on forever in our hearts.ReplyDelete
You know what??!! Loki and Gemini didn't really need all the extras 'cause they had YOU and your LOVE.ReplyDelete
However, we're grateful to the seven scotties, wolfhound and deerhound X that trained HER before we came along. We love the extras.
XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
