Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-mutt-pound dog

Food!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cuddling with Mom and kitty cat companion Claire, laying in the snow on the deck, going for rides in the truck, and having belly rubbed!

When Aurie gets mad at me for stealing her bone, being left at home when Mom has to leave town.

Favorite Toy:
Tennis Balls!!!!!!! I'll literally eat them til they're gone!

Favorite Food:
Anything but onions!

Favorite Walk:
Up the street to the little stream to go swimming and to visit my horse friends!

Best Tricks:
"Woo-wooing" Mom into giving me a treat! I'm very vocal, just like my companion Aurealis (Aurie)

Arrival Story:
My Mom's boyfriend at the time brought me home from the pound and she took one look at me and knew I was a keeper! Eventually she ditched the boyfriend, but I was lucky to have spent my later years with someone who loved me completely and took care of me even when I was sick, and nursed me til my final days. I was the sweetest, most gentle soul and will always be remembered as Mom's "Boo Boo" and "Love Bug".

I took the trip over the Rainbow Bridge on July 12, 2006 due to complications of Cushing's Disease and old age. I lived a good life and was given a second chance when I was two years old, which turned out to be the beginning of a wonderful life with my human Mom. I know Mom, Aurie and Claire miss me, but I'll be waiting for them with my famous "Sammy Smile" and "Happy Dance" when we meet again.

Forums Motto:
I'm Mom's Boo Boo Love Bug

I've Been On Dogster Since:
January 1st 2005 More than 12 years!

Dogster Id:

It's not easy when you're as old as I am!

I had to say goodbye to Mommy on June 12, 2006. I passed peacefully in her arms and went very quickly. I know she misses me terribly and she cries a lot, but I'm always with her in spirit and am watching over her, Aurie and Claire. I miss them all so much too, but I was no longer able to eat or walk without falling down, so it was time for me to go. I will be waiting for all of them when the time comes to welcome them with my famous smile and "happy dance". Now I'm able to run, dig and play like I did when I was a pup. Jodi and Shadow are here too, so I'll never be lonely. Remember what the vet said Mommy, you were the best Mom you could be and took such good care of me in my old age. I know how hard it was to let me go, but you did everything you could and I will always love you......... I will be waiting for you, I promise.

You lived your life wanting nothing more than love and affection. You filled my days with smiles and laughter. You were the best friend and companion a girl could ever want and I tried my hardest to be the best Mom I could, but old age and illness pays no heed to wishes such as mine. You died in my arms this morning, and my heart is breaking, but wait for me my friend, for one day we shall meet again.
In loving Memory of Sampson

Time to Say Goodbye

Well my life is coming to and end, it won't be long now. I will miss my Mom and my companions Auire and Claire so much. I'm tired though, and think I've had enough of this world. I can see the Rainbow Bridge and think I'd like to cross it soon. I stopped eating several weeks ago, and although Mom tries so hard, I'm just not hungry anymore. She feeds me baby food so I can get my pain meds, but this old body just can't go on. I know she doesn't want to say goodbye, but I will always be with her......... Thanks to all my pup pals for your kind words and encouragement, but all good things must come to an end. I'll be waiting for you all over that bridge, be sure to come and say hello when you reach the day that it's your time as well, we'll have a grand time and be like puppies again. My heart is with you always.
