The Sixth Sense of Gremlin 
9th-Jun-2010 09:51 pm
It's been four days since Gremlin passed away and everywhere I turn, I still expect to see him. Every time I get up from a chair, I look down to make sure I don't step on him, because he used to love lying down around my feet.

I only emptied his water bowl out yesterday. I wake up in the morning and can almost swear I hear his occasional quiet barks, demanding to be let out of the kitchen.

Every time I eat in the breakfast nook, I see that spot, where his still body lay for the last time, his eyes wide and staring without life.

There are fewer triggers that set me crying, but it still aches inside. I miss my little pup.

Gremlin was such a sweetheart. You'll always have such wonderful memories of him with all these lovely photos.

I especially love that second picture.

Many times as I walked into the stable yard I still expected to see Jaykub looking out over his door. I suppose hope is always there - and they stay part of your life that way.

Perry died as suddenly, and for a few days that patch of grass haunted me ... but it did go as memories of seeing him play on the same area replaced it.

I did like you are doing - kept looking at the pictures, remembering the good times ... and the naughty times!

Love and hugs.

These are lovely photos.

Though I am curious as to how he ended up with what looks like a shower cap on his head.

As for the expecting to see him he's been part of your life for years now you won't break the habit in the space of a few days.

He was a lovely dog!

When he first arrived in your life it must have taken a while to train your feet to check and go round him. You can't expect your feet to unlearn that in only a few days.

I'm sorry he's gone, he looks such a character in your photos.

Hugs, I know how you feel. When I was 5 years old and he was 5 weeks old I first met my Sooty a Pekingnese terrier cross puppy who became my companion and furry brother for the next 13 years. One of his daily routines was to sit on the front step of the house about 5 minutes before I was due to turn the corner at the bottom of the hill on my way home from school and when I did he would trot down the hill and escort me up it to home . For almost a year after he died I would look up the hill half expecting him to be there and my breath would catch when I didn't see him. That grief at their absence does fade in time, you never forget them but the memories will bring smiles not tears in time. But until they do all any one can do is sympathise and wish you a short grief.

He'll always be adorable. Also the shower cap photo is so so adorable.
