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.)


Here are some of the pictures you may remember of him at his best. Full-size pictures, and others, are in the folder.

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. I just lost my horse, and he was elderly too, but you're just never really prepared for it. Sam was happy and well loved, and he looks like he had a great life with you and your family.

I'm sorry for your loss, lorax.

Losing a horse is really hard too. I lost my first one 6 years ago and I still feel it, especially around his birthday (which would be tomorrow). :(

Yeah. You really aren't ever prepared, are you? Good thoughts for you too.
