PG's actual name was Princess Gizmo. She was a native Hawaiian, born on the island of Oahu in December of 2001. I was at sea when we (and by 'we' I mean Jeannie) finally moved from our fleabag rental apartment into our newly purchased condo. Not long after that Jeannie realized that being alone sucked, so she went down to the Honolulu Humane Society and picked out our little darling. She'd only had PG a few days when my ship pulled in unexpectedly and I surprised her (ON Valentines Day). And then she surprised ME with our very first little fur-baby! Jeannie wanted to name her "Princess" and I thought she looked more like Gizmo (from the movie Gremlins)...her ears were pretty big for the size of her. We compromised and she became Princess Gizmo, but we started calling her PG pretty much right away.
I figure I'll just stop narrating too much and finish this with pictures from beginning to end. Know that this post is WAY long, and likely only Jeannie and I have any real interest in it...I think it was very theraputic for me to make it...remembering all the good times we had. I know that I teared up a LOT in the making of this. So here we go on my memorial tribute to PG.
|Playing in the sand and surf at Hickam Beach, Oahu.|
Sweet Pea wasn't impressed at ALL.
Gosh they LOVED the beach. In this picture Sydney is all wet as she had jumped into the surf after a seal (I had to run into the surf to get her before the waves took her out).
I had carried her to the park as she couldn't walk that far because her rear leg was very weak.
