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. When my dog was hit by a car, I had dreams about her for months. I hope you and your family are able to be there for each other in this.

He was a very good dog.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Sam brightened my day every time you posted about him.

I am so sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing his stories with us over the years. ::hugs::

I'm so sorry for your family's loss.
As the owner of a Pommie that's slowly going deaf (and who barks constantly if he can't see us)I used to look forward to your photos of Sam's iconic haircuts, and I giggled over your stories of being his seeing-eye person and the house of Yap.
But it is wonderful that you were able to give him such good quality of life.

It's always so hard to lose a pet, they may not be people but they're still part of the family. I'm so sorry for your loss. *hug*

I'm so sorry Cleo. The loss of a pet is a very difficult one. <3 Keeping you and your family in my thoughts.

Oh, sweetie, I'm so sorry. I know how hard losing a pet can be, and I'll be praying for you and your family. From what you wrote about Sam, he always seemed like such a happy, playful little guy and I'm glad he went peacefully.


I'm sorry for your loss. That last tummy rub is beautiful.

Great condolances. Losing pets is almost harder than losing people. Hugs!

So sorry for your loss of Sam. He was loved by people who'd never even met him, which is accomplishment for anyone, let alone someone who can only communicate with his happy looks and furry face. He was very good.

*hug* I'm so sorry.

He was a beautiful little dog, and well and truly loved.

I'm sorry to hear this, Cleo, I know how hard it is. I hope your family is coping well enough.

Oh Cleo, I'm so sorry.
