Today was difficult in that Sammy went to the Rainbow Bridge. She was 15 1/2 years old and is currently much missed. Sammy was a lady and had one of the best temperaments that I have seen. I thank Diane from the bottom of my heart for giving us the opportunity to have Sammy.
It is lonely tonight asSammy was definitely my comfort dog. But she plays at the Rainbow Bridge with our Blackie & Dutchess. I so miss them.
Possibly we get strong with our dogs but thank you. If was rough as to add insult to injury today was my birthday & my husband didn't want to call me to tell me how bad Sammy was doing.
On the plus side, the vet was absolutely wonderful. I called ahead & told them we were coming. They had two people waiting and everyone was very helpful and more than kind.
They truly cared about Sammy and made it as good as it could be. I miss her so much tonight. I spoke to my friend & her breeder and thanked Diane so much for entrusting Sammy to us. I just wish I could have changed the situation but considering what we had to work with, we did the best we could.
Thank you all as without the "doggy people" tonight would be very very tough.
I'm so sorry about your Sammy. I thought I mis-read 15 1/2 years. That's incredible. Those years must be full of so many wonderful memories. As you were fortunate to have Sammy, he was fortunate to have your family as well.
I hope I am not speaking out of line and maybe I have missed some posts but I do not see anything strong or solid in the way you have expressed your feelings regarding the loss of Sammy. She was obviously a much loved member of your family and you were very fortunate that she had such a long life and no doubt you played a significant role in that acheivement. I was very moved by both of your posts because of the love expressed and the loss you feel.
