Goodbye, Old Friend

We said goodbye to our Sammy dog yesterday. It was, as every pet owner knows, one of those decisions that is simultaneously gut wrenching yet compassionate.

He will be missed for so many reasons, but I think for his unquestioning and limitless love for me and the rest of his family most of all.

So, so sorry for your loss. It is heartwrenching when our little friends go, but they bring so much joy to our lives while they are with us. Only another pet lover can know what you are experiencing right now. I'm sure Maggie and Lulu will be feeling the loss also.
RIP Sammy.

Oh, Julia, I am so sorry. We lost our Sarah 2 years ago and Clancie 3 years ago. It's still hard to look at their photos. We still have Maggie. I feel just crushed for you. What a wonderful pet Mom you must be!

Losing a pet is so hard. They are family members and we miss them so much. I will be praying for you and your family.

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear that - we will miss him, for sure. He was a wonderfully sweet and loving dog. I know it is always such a hard moment to have to let go. My sympathy.

Left you a comment on the girls blog.

Again, I am so very sorry for your loss. These amazing creatures come into our lives and impact us in such an amazing way that words fail me.

My thoughts are with you and your family. Keep an eye on the girls, Nellie was a bit off for a while after Tate passed away last year.

My best,
