It was a year ago today that we said goodbye to Sam. I can't believe that much time has passed already. He would've loved going for a walk on a day like today. I can see his tail swinging back and forth and he trots down the sidewalk with his leash in his mouth. We love you and miss you Sam Sam.
On a bright, sunny, spring day, we said goodbye to our Sam. It seemed fitting because Sam loved being outside. Both Don and I know that it was the right decision but it is so hard. I miss seeing his sweet, white face at the front door when I drive up. He was always the happiest, laid back dog. I miss that too. And touching his velvet soft ears. We love you Sam. You will be in our hearts forever. There are 2 dogs in heaven now that I love and miss dearly.

13 years ago today, I adopted Sam from the Humane Society of Charlotte. He's plugging along at 15 1/2 years. On days like today when it is so nice, I think we will give Sam I Am so extra time outside which he will love.
If dogs and cats could talk, this is what I imagine they'd tell me they are thankful for this Thanksgiving holiday: Chester - belly rubs
Bailey - tennis balls
Sparky - breakfast... and dinner.. and the outdoors
Sweetie - long walks
Lucky - chasing sticks in the yard
Rocky - sniffing around in the yard
Maddie & Cotton - when the pet sitter comes and feeds us
Turkey Lurkey - her cat door
and my crew:
Willow - long walks with her dad and stuffed toys
Sam - going for walks and having a storm door to look out
Buddy - I think Buddy is most thankful for me and that is the best feeling in the world :)
Sam is 15 today. I can't believe it and other than the scare we had several weeks ago, he is doing just great. He is LOVING his daily walks and he still GOBBLES down his breakfast and dinner. Life is good for Sam Sam!
PS Birthday party with Frosty Paws later today :)
Sam, Buddy & Willow - we took the dogs with us on vacation and here are a few of the pictures I took. All of us love vacation! Click the link to watch a video of us trying to get the dogs off the golf course as some golfers are coming through.
