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.

I'm very sorry to read about your loss.

Oh, Cleo. How awful. *Jedi hugs*

I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing a dog is never easy, but I'm glad he was peaceful and happy.

I am saddened at the loss of your little fluffball.
House Of Bark just won't be the same.

I'm so sorry. Sam stories were always delightful additions to my day, so I can only imagine what your family must be feeling.

What an adorable little ball of _happy_, he looks to be in those pictures.

My dog of twelve years passed away in September, and I still haven't gotten over it. So hear to hear about your sweetie. Thoughts are with you and your family.


I loved reading of le petite lap bear's adventures - to the vet, to the groomer, to the board meetings (CEO's duties, vry important, after all).

Our cat is 21 years old and our goal is to make the rest of his life, as we did the earlier part of his life, as comfortable as possible. We try to make the right decisions for that quality of life he deserves. All of this becomes more time-consuming these days. But I find myself with more patience than I thought I would have.

We can tell from our readings that Sam was indeed well loved and cared for. And that love was returned, as is evident in the great pictures you posted.

Take care, sweetie.

Oh honey I'm so sorry! The Bark is gone. Long live the House of Bark.

Oh, Petite Lap Bear, you will be missed. Many belly rubs, ear scritches, and naps in the sun in Tír na nÓg.

I'm so very sorry for your loss.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

Hell. I am so sorry, Cleo.
