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.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Our dogs are basically our children, and I can't even think about that eventual day.

So sorry for your loss. It's a familiar situation to me, when it's expected but still sudden. Lost one of my old bunnies that way just a couple months ago.

He was a real handsome little fella, your Sam.

Let me add my voice and wishes of sympathy to those you've already received. I am so very sorry for your loss. He was very handsome, and obviously had a great deal of personality.

I'm so sorry to hear that. He was very cute and I enjoyed every time you posted a pic of him.

I'm so sorry. He was such a fixture around here. He'll be missed.

Oh, Cleo, as someone who lost a pet this year I know where you're coming from, my deepest, sincerest condolences to you and your family. I wish I could say something that would make you feel better, but words fail me.


*big hugs* You know you and your family have my sympathies. I'm glad I got to meet him and that he went peacefully.

I'm so sorry. It's always so awful to lose a pet, even when it's expected. Take care of yourself.

I'm sorry for you loss.

Oh no! He will definitely be missed.

I'm so sorry. I always loved seeing pictures of Sam, he was such a jolly looking dog.
