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 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.
