Sam......

Today is a sad day at our house...we had to have our dog, Sam, put to sleep this afternoon. For those of you who didn't know Sam, he was an incredible dog, one of a kind!! We adopted Sam from Jamie's nursing school friend, Ronda, when she and her husband were sent to England with the military. They knew that Sam would have to be quarantined for 6 months before he could join them in England, and they didn't want put him through that, so we gladly brought him into our lives. He was such a fun dog and amazingly well-behaved (our friends always commented on that!) His best trick was saying "Ma Ma"---honest, he did!!! I brought him to my kindergarten classroom for "show and tell" and the kids were totally amazed by his talents! He was a great companion and wonderful pet, but he was growing very old and weary. We will miss him, but know that he is not suffering any more and for that we are very thankful. This is a layout that I did of Jim and Sam in Sam's younger years!

I'm so sorry to hear of Sam's passing. Pets are so special. It's hard to see them go. I'm glad you had such a special friend to bring the kind of joy to your life that only a pet can.
BIG HUGS!

Judy: To use the word animal or pet would be wrong because Sam was FAMILY. Sorry to hear that you've lost one of the family. Hugs to you.
