We still have Giorgie’s doggie bowls sitting out. It is just hard for us to put them away. We have finally put away his bed. Colby actually put it under his bed. We still have pictures of him around the house and our hearts have healed. We still miss him very much but we are no longer in a painful state. I was a bit concerned about Colby because he was with Giorgie the longest simply because he is my oldest child but Colby is doing well now. The girls are doing fine as well.
We still do things out of habit. I was in a hurry last week and threw my clothes on the floor as I was chaning into another outfit and then I quickly picked them up so Giorgie would not lay on them. It dawned on me that he would not be laying on them ever again. Colby asked me who was watching Girogie while we were in Atlanta speaking at our home church a few weeks ago. He realized what he had said after he said it and he ended his questions with a “never mind”. I think those sorts of things are still a tad painful but other than that we seem to do pretty well.
We will always miss Girogie, he was just that kind of dog. Actually writing this blog hurts a bit but it is not a totally bad hurt. It is an “I miss you” sort of hurt.
For those of you who do not have close family pets I am sure you don’t get this sort of thing and that is ok. But when you are close with a pet it really is like a member of your family passed. He was with us for a very long time.
Thanks for still asking bout us. We so appreciate your love and concern. It is feels good to be thought of and loved like you guys love our family. We love you back!
P.S. Above are pics of what Girogie looked like both as a puppy and as an old friend.
