Sad news
msauvage purple
I keep not wanting to tell people but needing to tell people. Sam passed away somewhat unexpectedly yesterday afternoon--somewhat, because we'd been expecting the other shoe to drop for a full year, but you just never quite expect someday to be now. Maybe I'll talk about it at more length later. I'm just too tired to get into it right now, except to say that he was happy and peaceful.

I put together a couple of pages of pictures, if only as backup in case I lose the original files. These are the last two pictures I took of him, with my mother--he decided to rally for about half an hour to make everyone smile one last time, I think. (Pictured: tummy rub.)


Here are some of the pictures you may remember of him at his best. Full-size pictures, and others, are in the folder.

I may or may not be around much today. I already have a doctor's appointment scheduled (sigh), so I'll be gone for that anyway. I may sit around on Twitter for a while, I don't know. It's like, I feel terrible about--well, everything, really--but I don't really know what else to do with myself.

I am incredibly sorry for your loss.

I'm so sorry for your loss. What a sweetheart.

I am so sorry for your loss, I know how difficult it is to lose a pet. You have my condolences.

I'm so sorry. Sending many good thoughts. :(

I'm so, so very sorry that you had to go through this. This is one of the worst things to deal with. All I can say is, take care. *hugs*

I'm so sorry for your loss. :(

I'm sorry. It's good that he was happy and peaceful, but it's still sad. Best wishes to you and your family.

I'm so sorry to hear this. The way you talked about him made so clear how much you loved him and he loved you. At least it was peaceful.

Oh, honey, I am so sorry. He was a good dog. It's never really any easier.

Take care of yourself. We love you.

Oh, I'm so sorry. We're in that "anytime but just not yet" place with our dog right now, and I feel this very keenly. Many condolences to you and your mother. Take care.

I'm so sorry. I just lost my horse, and he was elderly too, but you're just never really prepared for it. Sam was happy and well loved, and he looks like he had a great life with you and your family.

I'm sorry for your loss, lorax.

I am so sorry for your loss.

I am so, so sorry about loosing your sweet dog. Even though it was expected, it never makes it easier or any less heartbreaking.

I'm so sorry. I'm glad it was peaceful, but it's still incredibly hard to lose a pet.

I am so sorry, Cleo. I remember how badly it hurts to lose a dog. And Sam was such a darling.

I'm so sorry. The loss of a furry family member is devastating. You're in my thoughts, and I hope the other dogs of the House of Bark will provide some comfort.

he decided to rally for about half an hour to make everyone smile one last time, I think.

They do that, don't they, those precious little creatures we call "pets", but are actually best friends (sometimes the bestest you can have, in fact).

I've recently lost my kitty (she was just one year old), so I feel very close to you and sorry for your loss.

I've actually thought about Sam a couple of days ago, when telling my mom that elder animals that go blind can live and be perfectly happy, exp. when there's someone who loves and cares for them and keeps them safe and merry. Which you did, and that is wonderful.

Big hugs to you &take care of yourself.

I'm so sorry for your loss. *hugs*

What a happy-looking little fluffball. I'm so sorry for your loss.
