Sammie

Recommended Posts

We had to say goodbye to our first dog today, Sammie.

 

I have no idea what he was. I've always said Border Collie mix, but never really did know. But, no matter, he started my interested in Border Collies and he was always a fantastic companion.

 

He was almost 15 years old and his body just finally gave out on him. We tried everything reasonable at the end, but finally it was clear that it was time. :(

 

I miss him awfully, but he is with Speedy and Maddie now and I know that is right. Even though he and Speedy didn't seem close, Sammie was never the same after we lost him. He went downhill physically kind of quickly after that.

 

In their younger days, Sammie and Speedy . . .

He will be missed. He slept on my feet almost every night of his life with us.

 

No matter how long we have them, it's never enough time. :(

I'm so sorry, Kristine. It's hard enough to loose one, but two so quickly is just cruel.

 

As you say, it's never enough time. And when there is no more time, there are no words . . .

 

I wish you well . . . hugs.

I am so sorry. It is such a blessing to be able to spend so much time with them. Yet a curse to have to watch their bodies give out in the end.

I am very sorry that you have lost another dog so soon. He was a lucky boy the day you found each other and for the rest of his life. I hope all the wonderful memories help ease your pain.

So sorry Kristine. What a hard thing to have to face so soon after Speedy.

Prayers and hugs to you and your family.

Run free Sammie, say hi to Speedy

Oh no... It broke my heart to see this post this morning. I can't imagine how hard this has been for you with Speedy and then Sammie. My deepest sympathy for the losses you've experienced.

Thanks. I appreciate all of the thoughts. It is much more difficult with two so close together. And I've known this one was coming in the near-ish future for quite a while, but that doesn't make it any easier.

 

I feel awful for Dean and Tessa, too. I can't explain why an entire house full of dogs has just vanished into thin air around them. I think they knew Sammie was very sick, but still, they were both looking for him last night and I can't explain why he's not there anymore.

Run free, Sammie.

Oh Kristine, I'm so sorry. It's hard enough losing one, but two close together is just awful. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your husband. Godspeed Sammie.

I'm so sorry to hear about Sammie...even 15 years isn't enough to have them. Run free at the bridge with the others who have gone before you.

Oh, no.... I'm so very sorry, Kristine! I hope Sammie and Speedy are busy giving each other a good run for their money right now at the Bridge.

 

My heart goes out to you and to your husband.
