I Still Can't Seem To Do It....


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I have not yet been able to post an official remembrance for Robin. In fact, I was just going through the facebook and GT posts that I made the day he died and I am crying like it happened yesterday. I can't believe I still can't do it. I feel like I don't want to do it unless I do it right....unless I write one that is worthy of the amazing soul that Robin was, and that I include the absolute perfect selection of pictures. But I can barely see right now with the tears.... :( So I don't think I will be able to do it tonight.


Robin has been gone 4 1/2 months.....I feel horrible that I have not been able to post this for him yet, like I've failed him somehow. And yet he would be okay with this, with me taking the time to do it right....and filling my days with long walks with my new boy, remembering him in every leaf and every sunset.


So this is not his remembrance....it is not good enough to be so....and I will not let Robin have less than the best. However, I did never make his loss official in this section of GT, and I feared that there was at least someone who knew him who missed the thread about it in June and who I need to tell.


Though I have been on facebook a lot, I have not come to the GT forum much since Robin left. That was our thing, somehow.... I just haven't been able to do it. However, the time has come to do an introduction thread for my new boy, and to sign up for Secret Santa. In cleaning today I came upon the box that Robin's last Secret Santa came in. It makes me sad to know that he will not get another one, and yet excited to sign up with Calvin. And to move on to my next chapter in GT.


So again, I hold off on fully saying goodbye to my co-pilot of 11 1/2 years. My best friend. The love of my life.







I hope that Robin is having as much fun at the bridge as I have envisioned.... because he has sure left a huge hole behind. I love him with all my heart.


To be continued, when I am ready......

Cathy, Robin was a huge personality all bundled up in fur. He was larger than life and his zest and vim were contagious.

He was special beyond compare. When you're ready, it will come. Til then, know that he was loved by fans far and wide (and so are you!) peace and comfort to you.

I can just imagine Robin bounding across the stars and smiling at each and every one.

I lost my dachshund back in May and finally made a remembrance thread a couple months ago. It's tough. I felt like I needed to do it for closure. I kept putting it off bc then it felt like he was officially "gone". It was therapeutic, though, so I hope this feels the same for you.

I don't know if they ever really completely leave us, and I feel like we will all meet again. I couldn't imagine not knowing his soul again.


So sorry for your loss.

Cathy - got misty reading, and understand completely. Bleu has been gone a year on November 5th and I still can't do it.....sometimes there just aren't any words. One thing I do know for sure tho is that gt people just "get it" and are there with you in spirit - hugs.

this sweet post that you don't feel is a proper tribute is, in fact, a lovely, heartfelt, insightful tribute-to-be-continued for your precious boy. he is on your mind and in your heart every day, and when the time is right, you will find the perfect words to share him with others. i'm so sorry you lost your beloved robin, and that you are missing him so much.

I so understand. I have still not managed to do threads for many of my girls.


Robin was a special soul, and was known and loved on GT. When you're ready, we'll be here.


Godspeed Robin.
