Winter’s here, but you are not.

It’s SOOO cold outside Gerry boy; I’m half glad that you’re not having to deal with these low temperatures.  I think I was picking ticks off of you this time last year! Mother Nature is making up for the last You would NEVER have wanted to do ‘big business’ with these wind chill factors, and I wouldn’t have blamed you.  I’ve missed you these past few days.  School got cancelled for 2 days and we could’ve had snow days together.  Instead of getting to take naps with you, your blanket had to suffice…and it only made me sad…I wasn’t even sleepy.  I just wanted to pet you and look out the window until we DID get drowsy and take that nap.  I miss the sound of your breathing putting me to sleep.  Good night, big boy.

About danielle

I am a rescue mom and school teacher. Gerry came to me from Texas, after he "failed" as a hunting dog. He had NOT had an easy life. I was three years divorced, and we saved each other. Last week I learned he has osteosarcoma. Our world feels upside down...while everyone else is right side up.

    Gerry surrounds you every day with love! His spirit will remain strong as long as you hold him close to your heart!
    Is that Gerry’s paw print? It looks so warm in the cold snow! It’s a beautiful picture!
    Hugs to you and spirit kisses to your boy Gerry.

    Thank you for your encouraging words. This roller coaster of emotions is best shared with my Tripawd friends. I know that Gerry’s spirit will never leave me. I miss him more than humans I have lost, and I don’t feel guilty about it. He was my boy.

    The print is not Gerry’s paw print. I found it on Pinterest, and it just made me think of him and so I saved and uploaded it. I never printed him. The cancerous leg was discovered on a Monday and gone that Saturday, in hopes for a longer time with him…and who am I to say it didn’t…..but, it never occurred to me at the time, and I’m 1/2 glad. I have so many framed photos and things that are “his” that I don’t know what to do with them all. Thank you for your words of support. They truly matter to me

    Same here. I think we got more time than you did but that doesn’t make it any better somehow. Manni used to love winter, the cold, snow. I always hated it but now that he’s gone it’s just so much worse. I have lost a few humans in my time as well but this, for some reason, is totally different, and a lot worse. The connection we had with our boys is something that no human could probably ever give me so that’s ok.
    My house is too quiet now, as I’m sure is yours.
    Biggest of hugs to you, from one grieving heart to another.

      I remember reading your blog recently and feeling heartbroken for YOU….awful…there’s just not another word that comes to my mind first…I try to be realistic, but this felt like a slap in the face, as if I hadn’t learned enough about reality and death in my time here on Earth, that I needed to have my HUGEST soul mate taken from me as well…
      If anyone has a grateful heart it’s an owner of a tripawd.
      Thank you for your big hug…it was needed!

    You always post such “simply profound” thoughts and feelings. You speak of him with such an ease and with a pure and simple eloquence.

    I can picture you two snuggled together for naptime on cold snowy days. Try and remember he is, and will always be,warmly snuggled in yiur heart.And he never has to be cold again. No butt frostbite ever happens at the Bridge!

    With love
    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
