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.

So sorry for your loss.

I'm very sorry for your loss. He looked like a cute little guy.

I am so sorry to hear this. Our pets are definitely our family. ((hug))

I'm sorry for your loss. ♥

I am so SO sorry, Cleo. Even an expected death is heart-wrenching. And, because of you, we all are mourning the loss of Sam (which is how it should be, because Sam = AWESOMESAUCE). And, IMO, the death of a pet is somehow just a little more painful than the death of a human. I've never been able to figure out why that is.

Know that your family is in my prayers and Sam is already hanging out with St. Francis in the giant field of frolicking in the sky.

Oh, Cleo, I am so, so sorry. They're family. We lost our own family dog a few weeks back, it is the absolute worst. Sam was an adorable little lap bear. Thanks for sharing all the stories and pictures of him over the years. He made a lot of people smile. I'm just a stranger on the internet, but I'll be thinking kind thoughts for you and your family. All my sympathies.

I'm so sorry to hear about this. Our family went through the same thing about a year ago and it's just hard. Glad you guys had so many happy times together. What a sweet dog.

Blessed little lamb. He was surrounded by so much love, obviously. What a little sweetie. Hugs and condolences to you and your family, Cleo. It's so, so hard to say goodbye.

I do remember Sam. I am so sorry for you and your family.

Man, I'm so sorry Cleo. What an adorable baby.

So sorry to hear this, Sam was delightful and well loved and will be missed.

House of Meow sends along condolences. Well, they would if they weren't pissed at me for changing their can food. So I guess the condolences are really just from me. I'm so sorry :(
