Sam the big black dog 1999-Aug 19 2010

A big black dog stands no more

14 hours of increasing paralysis took its toll

Being with Sam was the best dog experience I ever had

I learned so much from him and will miss him more

We thank all those for sharing your walks with us

A quintessential gentle giant of a dog

Thank you all you for you heartfelt comments..
Sam would have leaned into and nose-nudged all and every one of you ..
anyone and everyone.. unconditionally!

As it was from moment one from the other side of the shelter fence, emaciated and nearing death and amongst the kennel chaos..
after nearly 7 weeks he was healthy enough to be life changed

Now joined with Peanut, Sandy, Toby, Export, Luke, Sass and Coal and many other that have been part of my life

Thanks for the venue to allow me the platform to be a blithering bag of emotional helps

:rip: Sweet Sam. I am so sorry for your loss and we know what a big hole they leave in our lives when they go to the bridge. But take comfort in the fact that he is no longer in pain and running and playing like a pup again. He will be with you again

So sorry for your loss OBC. Sam looks like a wonderful boy. I'm sure you will miss him terribly but no doubt the wonderful memories will help to heal your broken heart. RIP sweet Sam, you'll be running pain free at the Bridge now.
