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.) Read more...Collapse )

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.

Oh, my very dear. I'm so sorry.

I'm so sorry :( I'll miss hearing about him.

I'm sorry to hear about Sam's passing, but it seems like you did your best to make his last year happy and comfortable.

There's so many comments, I didn't see if anyone had posted this yet, but it always rings true to me when someone I know loses a pet.

“We who choose to surround ourselves
with lives even more temporary
than our own, live within a fragile
circle, easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps,
we still would live no other way. “

I'm so very sorry for your loss. I always loved your stories and pictures of Sam, as a petit lap bear and CEO of House of Bark. His big personality and joyful grin have always made me smile. Even on such a sad day, it's impossible not to smile at that tummy rub picture. It's obvious that he had a wonderful life with your family. My deepest sympathies to all of you.

Hopefully this isn't creepy; during one of my darkest depressive episodes you happened to tweet a picture of Sam and it reminded me that, yes, the world is full of pain, but it also has small fluffy creatures that want to say "HAY U GUIZE!" Thank you for sharing your 'petit lap bear' with us, I am so very sorry for your loss.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Sam the Petite Lap Bear will be very fondly remembered.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I choose to believe he will be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge. <3

I'm so sorry for your loss, sending good thoughts to you and your family.

From everything I've read over the years, he certainly seemed to have a happy life with a very caring family. I'm very sorry. *hugz*

I am so sorry for your family's loss. Thanks for sharing that perpetually smiling face with us. We should all be so lucky to leave this world as Sam did, happy, peaceful and surrounded with love.

I'm so sorry you lost your lil' bear, Cleo. He looks like a dog who had a life full of love and tummy-rubs.

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

Oh, no. Sam... :( *HUGS TO YOU AND YOURS* Sam was such a special, happy little dog! I'll miss seeing posts about him and his wonderful, zany, latest antics. *HUGZ MOAR* You take the time you need for you, okay? We'll be here for you if you need us.
