I will try to be positive. It was a delight to own a pretty little girl like Gemma. Lindapalm is right in the she did make us laugh a lot, and so many nice memories. Losing Gemma makes me think I need to cherish every day I have with the remaining shelties, 2 of which are now 12 years old, and two are 10.
They do have a very special place in our hearts don't they? I have lost my fare share of people and pets... and I think with pets it tends to be a bit harder because they are around for a shorter time, and it literally feels like loosing a child, how are the other dogs doing? are they missing her lots?
