   Leave a bone for Sammy - (In Loving Memory)

Sammy, Sam, Sammyboy, The Baby..Son..Samson

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-purebred-service dog

September 1st 1994

sticks, balls of ANY kind, tennis, baseball, football, soccer, basketball you name it..anything that can be tossed...even small pieces of paper

puppies that cry, other male dogs who show off ( Sams motto was, 'show off for your own mom, dont show off for mine')... being left at home and mom not coming the instant I scratch on the door to come in.

Favorite Toy:
ball, sticks (he took great pleasure in finding the 'perfect stick')

Favorite Food:
Sam was a finicky eater and that is odd for a German Shepherd but he always loved homemade chicken and rice or soft canned lamb puppy food and He had never turned down a piece of American cheese

Favorite Walk:
any park, lake

Best Tricks:
His speak and then quiet trick or the 'find it' trick

Arrival Story:
i got Sam 12 yrs ago, he was 4 months old..He has been with me thru raising the children, a major move across country, and many of lifes up and downs. His loyalty and love for me never waivered, not once and as sad as this sounds, i will compare all other dogs to Him and i know none will ever measure up or ever replace Him. i couldnt of loved Him more if He was a human child and our bond will be missed so deeply. He was spoiled, yes i know.... BUT he gave so much back it didnt matter. He left a imprint at many public events and this in turn, gave others a chance to be spayed/neutered or to find a loving home..why wouldnt we spoiled a furbaby that did so much? Sammy was a CGC and TDI Boy and won countless ribbons and prizes that became just as important, like..longest tail, best bark , best costume and those ribbons as small as they may seem, supplied boxes of doggie treats, beds, collars, toys and funding to other animals in need, he always donated ALL of his winnings..He made me so proud, always..

Sammyboy always loved a party, the kind where he got to dress up and just have a good time with other dogs, Sam has been to so many events over the yrs to Sponser and help many other animals and their people in need with spay and neuter or homelessness..He loved his picture taken for the most part and would actually pose for as long as you needed, he was a real Ham. Kids loved him and he loved kids, especially the kinda kids who like to toss sticks or balls, those were his favorite. i just miss him so much, my heart is broken in pieces. i have cried a river and more for Him and i will never get over losing Him... i love You Sammy, i always have, i always will...

Forums Motto:
Ill need a NEW hat for the party mom!

its been one year to this date that Sam left us..Sept 23,2006
Not one day as passed when he hasnt crossed my mind. it still only feels like yesterday that he got so sick. alot as changed in one year but one thing that hasnt is i still miss him so deeply and it still hurts when i drive up too the fence and he isnt there. a new german shepherd takes that place now at the gate and i found this doesnt ease the pain any. i still see Sam there. i miss him in the house..i miss his temper tantrums, i miss all his dog hair everywhere, i miss having to step over him because he refuses to move if he is comfortable, i miss all the new red clay mud spots on the walls and doors that his tail left behind constantly, i miss him being mad if he couldnt go in the car when i left, i miss the way he refused to look at me if he didnt get his way, i miss how if one of the kids would yell at him for something, he would lower his head, walk to me and look at me like" i hope they are in trouble for that?" i miss him being my friend and more like a son then any other dog anyone could own. i miss how happy he was to see me if i was only gone for 10 minutes, i miss him being so loyal no matter what, i miss how he was always right there even when everything else was falling apart in my life. i miss him laying by my bed when im not well and hearing him snore only inches from me...Him and Apollo really were the orginal Boys..
i miss them both deeply..i will be making Apollos page soon, Sam i love you and i miss You now more then ever...~

when i think...

When i think of Sam at the Rainbow Bridge i get a very clear picture in my mind. its always the same...a Large grassy field, the grass just tall enough to hide balls or stick being tossed about, (after all thats the fun of the game, searching for them) there is short grass, medium grass and taller grass for our furbabies that like to explore, like rabbits, turtles, hamsters.. Trees speckled about the landscape with so many different birds relaxing in them, they look like precious colored jewels from the distance.
There are huge , heavy ceramic bowls filled with fresh pure clean water sitting in the open and smaller ceramic bowls for the shorter animals... trays of snacks are plentiful, so much so, there is no need to argue over them because all will get their fair share.
The Ones (the Guardians) sent to look after our furbabies have been there since time began. They named the Moon and the Sun. The Universe is Thier place of Birth. They are gentle spirits, kind and loving. They know the names of each furbaby and each one is called everyday for breakfast then all day play sessions, socializing (the cats gossip im sure) then its dinner time, a little more play and then each is laid to sleep in a comfortable bed when the Moon is full, only to wake the next day and experiance the same painfree and youthful beginning they so enjoyed the day before. It never rains during the day, only at night when all are asleep. The grass always stays green, clean and never needs mowing. Cats and Dogs all get along and welcome other small critters that have joined them over the Bridge. Dogs do not argue and Cats dont kill or torment little creatures anymore. Sam is sharing toys and not being finicky about food. All the food is exactly what each furbaby preferred when they walked this Earth. i found this background today and it just remined me of where Sam is now. in my mind i can actually see Him laying under that small tree, i can hear Him breathing and feel His mind thinking " hey I just seen a stick being tossed way over there, Ill wait 2 seconds IF no one goes after it, I'll GET IT!!" i can see Him watching the area intensely.
When my time comes to leave this Earth my only hope is that i will be Honored and Choosen to be a Guardian because i miss Sam and i love to toss sticks and balls in grassy fields...
