Arrival Story:
Sammy was rescued from a local no-kill shelter. He had been there for a long time. So long in fact, the people there didn't even charge us for taking him, just so we gave him a good home. Almost immediately, Sammy became ill. We took him to several vets, and all of them felt from testing results, that he had Irritable Bowel Disease, and was put on daily medication. He began to improve significantly with the help of our wonderful and understanding Vet, Dr. Sheperd. But, Sammy could only fight so long. He went over the Rainbow Bridge on June 19, 2006. He left a huge void in our hearts and souls, as he became such a predominant part of our lives and brought us so much joy and happiness.

I found this poem to be extremly true and beautiful, and I sincerely hope the author does not mind me sharing it with anyone who has ever known puppy love and lost it: ASHLEY They say memories are golden, Well, maybe that is true. I never wanted memories, I only wanted you. A million times I needed you, a million times I cried. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still. In my heart you hold a place no one can ever fill. If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane, I'd walk that path to heaven and bring you back again. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same. But as God calls us, one by one, the chain will link again. "ASHLEY" (Tara Ashlynd Rowe) February 28, 1991 - September 8, 2000 Written by Cathy Rowe

One Year Today

As I awoke this morning, I felt a lump in my throat and a heaviness in my heart. The memory of a year ago rushed suddenly to my mind, so vivid, like it was yesterday. The last time I got to hold you and tell you how much I loved you with all my heart.

I still feel you at my feet, and see you at every corner. With those big loving, devoted, trusting eyes. Eyes so full of love they overflowed and glowed. You were the most unique pup ever. So happy and loving and playful. Always a smile and a tail wag, even when you were feeling badly.

Not one day goes by that you're not on my mind. Some memory of you comes suddenly rushing in. Amazing how one pup, in one year, can make such an impact on your soul ... but you did just that! You were my soulmate. I pray that you can look down from heaven and know the love in our hearts for you will be there forever. I love you as much today as I did the first day I set eyes on you, the last day I held you, and will love you that deeply forever.

So rest well my dear sweet angel, until we're reunited again.


Today is 6 Months!

Today is 6 long months since we've lost you sweet baby. Not a day goes by still that your not in my thoughts, or a tear is not shed. With the holidays nearing, it's even harder not to have you here. As I decorate and prepare, I think of last Christmas, and having you here and you and Earnie opening your presents on Christmas morning. You were so happy. You had finally found your furever home, and were safe with people who loved you with all their hearts. I still see you lying on the bed, or waiting for me at the top of the stairs. And sometimes I swear I even feel you here beside me.

I want you to know that I will always love you and you will forever be my special guy. I pray you're happy now and never sick. And I wonder if you can see us. If you can, then you know that I will forever love you. Like the saying goes .... I never wanted memories, I only wanted you ...! So rest well my love, and know that I always love you!


One Month Today.......

It's been one month today that we lost our baby Sammy. In that month, many tears have been shed, many regrets pondered over, many memories revisited. Life isn't the same anymore without him. His blanket still drapes the footboard of our bed. Each night at bedtime, I look around to see if he's following me up the stairs. We never thought a sweet, innocent furball with "Grinch" feet could leave such a massive void in our lives. It seems just yesterday he was looking up at me with those big devoted eyes, all that love in them, and all that trust. Although his brothers and sister are still here with us, they are not, as they shouldn't be, Sammy. He was the most unique baby.

Our love for him will forever be in our hearts and souls.

We love you Sammy!

Mommy and Daddy
