A tribute to our Beloved ~Gimini Cricket~
(I am going to let Mamma tell you about this , cause I just start crying and then I can't get my paws to type. I am not a big "nother'Doggie" Lover, but Gimini was there from I was a little baby, and I loved him)

This is Hanne, Sir Chance-Lot's mamma.

In February of this year, our 18 year Beloved little jack Russel Terrier
"Gimini Cricket"

was ready and said goodbye, to go on to The RainBow Bridge.
It was, as I am sure all of both the doggies and doggie moms and dads out there can identify, one of the most difficult days in our lives. This little dog was with me almost from the the time I came to the USA, and my best friend and "shadow".
I always felt something real special around Gimini,something almost airy, and was extremely fond of him.
2-3 days after he had gone, Nanook and Pooka's mamma and Pappa went skiing in Colorado, and we had promised to have Nanook here while they were gone.
The day after Nanook came ( this was before Pooka came to live with Vanessa and Sandy)Chance and Nanook was outside playing soccer, and it was a snowy cold evening, like 5 pm ish in the middle of February. I pr. usual had my camera outside, in case something interesting happened, and took a few shoots of them playing and chasing the soccer ball together. Nanook tires sooner than Chance, and laid down in the snow to rest after awhile, and I snapped a couple of shoots of him. This was the first one I took, and Yes it was that dusky outside

The Second one, that I snapped of him, was this one

When I came inside and downloaded the photos and saw this image where there should have been an image of Nanook , I just KNEW it was Gimini ,trying to tell me he was okay and maybe was missing us a bit, as I miss him terribly and extremely much so that day as it was only 3 days after he had left, and we all felt a big gaping hole in our family from his absence.

As we all know, Energy cannot Die, no matter what you do to it, and ALL LIFE is indeed such energy and light.
Our Bodies are simply just a ~shell~ we walk away from, when it has stopped serving us.

I wanted to share this with all of you, dogs and friends alike, and especially with Asta in NY and her mamma and Pappa, as they just had a one year anniversary of their little friend Nora's departure to the Rainbow Bridge.

Love and Hugz to All
~Begin today~ No matter how feeble the light~ let it shine as best it may~The world may need just that quality of light which YOU have~

P.S. This is SCL again...I hope you all have had time to see Mr.Robin Williams movie ~What D R E A M S may come~
cause that really helped me understand the Rainbow Bridge and All about it better :O)

Oh it is a BEAUTIFUL day here today, bet Maggie is cooler today too...Eh...Maggie?

Hi Chance,
That's so touching... it kind of assures my mom that there is 'life after death'..

yes it is light from gimini! someone who lives in the mountainous areas in japan sees these all the time just above a burial ground nearby. it is gimini alright; he's just lighter and more fluid now. :)

Awwwwh, little Gimini was a darling little boy! Mama loves the JRT with the wiry coat too. Mama had a JRT smooth for 6 months. He developed brain seizures at 6 months & she had to put him down. Very sad day. Very touching post. It is true, everything holds energy. Gimini was telling you he is happy & pain free now.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
