Georgie had passed away 1-week ago and I am having a hard time grasping the idea that he is no longer with us. The past week has been filled with tears, barely able to breathe and having this gaping hole inside me. It’s strange to think that this is permanent and even now I feel like he is away at the vet resting up to come home. Last Tuesday was a traumatic experience for me and my family and realizing how we take little things in life for granted. The house is quiet now without him. He was a huge part of our everyday life from the moment we wake up until we put our heads down to sleep. I am going to miss our everyday walks, feeding time, protecting us from the postman / gardeners, the barking alert that the sprinklers are turned on, the nudging of please pet me and give me a kiss and at night seeing him already in bed waiting for lights out. It was comforting to know how my neighborhood had gotten to know him and as I walked lil Nico for the first time without him everyone stops to ask where’s Georgie?
He has been with us for full 13 years and helped our family move to three homes, celebrated graduations of high school / college, the passing of his lil sister Bok Shi Ra, our 20’s filled with ups/downs, many birthdays, holidays, and happy celebrations in the Pak family… His favorite thing was the surprised treats I had for him once a day, his morning walks where he loved to greet people and their pets, and snuggle time in front of the TV. He loved loved loved watching my mom bbq in the backyard and sitting under the dining table watching Anne bake her goodies. The lion blanket you see through out this site was once his enemy and slowly became his blankie he couldn’t sleep without. He secretly loved dressing up and taking photos. He was bilingual and even though he didn’t know any cool tricks he was a talking pup that always let us know exactly what he wanted. The house is definitely empty with out him here…
Dear Yong Boks (Georgie),
I wish I made it in time to see you before you left. I pray that you didn’t feel alone or abandon at the hospital. You looked very peaceful and asleep and I know you are with Bok Shi Ra running around in grass heaven with endless amount of treats and a place that will never rain. Nico waits for you by the door every night. I know you will still be with us protecting us in spirit. I am going to miss your big brown eyes and pretty lashes… And I can’t express enough how much you mean to us and how much love we have for you. Thank you for being there for me and my family. You will never be forgotten. You took a piece of me with you and I am eternally grateful that you were my BFF!
