Sad news

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.

What a gem he was. I'm so glad he had you guys. Peaceful thoughts, Cleo.

Oh, Cleo, I'm so sorry. :(

I am so sorry to hear this. :(

So sorry to hear this. He was an adorable dog and from the stories you told, you and your family were great with him. I hope you can take comfort that he enjoyed a happy life with you and he was able to go on a good note.

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

I'm so sorry. You and your family have my full condolences.

I'm so sorry. Such a sweet dog!

I'm so sorry Cleo. It's awful when we lose a family member (because yes, pets are family) even when we know that their time is coming. It doesn't make it any easier to bear knowing that. But it does help knowing how much you loved him and clearly how much he loved you, and that when he needed his family to care for him after he served you for so many years you did it and you did it magnificently. That's the stuff of comfort in the end. *hugs*

I am so sorry. I actually almost teared up because this makes me think of the day I lost my birdie, and how much I dread losing my dogs someday. Which is not to make this ALL ABOU ME but just to say I completely understand how much grief you can feel when a dear pet dies. Praying for your comfort.

I'm so sorry. {{{{hugs}}}}

I'm sorry for your loss.

I'm so, so sorry. *gentle hugs*
