Look for him in every snowflake that falls from the sky, he is part of their beauty.

I just caught up on your family album in which Samson stars, along with cameos from Loki, Athena and Peterweed❤

You are putting together such an enchanting  “Book of Samson”.   The fun memories  you have shared and the way you have depicted who he is through each picture.  

The way he turned his back (covered in snow) the second you tried to take is picture, to the way he proudly held your socks in his mouth as he LET you take his picture….so much charisma ineed!!!

Each time he showed his handsome Rottie tummy I wanted to smooch it!  Such a cute tummy!!

Samson clearly has such a gentle spirit that came shiny through, especially in his close ups😊   Samson had a Regal side to him too.  He appeared quite majestic in ao e of his outdoor photos where he was just laying down enjoying  the bliss of being jn Nature.

We know your heart is still broken and it Otis hard to feel Samson’s presence with you right now.  But he is.  With every picture and every memory  you share, we all feel his presence.  He wants these memories  to bring a smile to your heart and, in time, , to help you heal.   He’s still your protector and will always be watching  over you, along with Loki, Athena and Peterweed❤❤❤

We are so honored  to get to know Samson through his “Book”.  Looking forward to more……..

Surrounding you with Samson’s hugs, kisses and figure eight greetings!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Thank you,

He LOVED LOVED belly rubs ( which lead to him doing the worm on his back every single time ) along with scratches and rubs above his nub ( tail stump) and even that made him do the butt wiggle …. LOL – I miss that so much …

Athena is getting a little better , she will still lay down with the pink bunny she put on his face after he passed and nudged him ( as if to say wake up or good bye for now ) but she still stares at the spot where he passed and has been laying closer to me more often then her usual self.

Apollo was my oldest boy ( 1st pic on fist page i believe ) with the white blaze on his nose. He passed from a ruptured tumor on his spleen ,between the times that Peterweed and Loki passed . They were all soo soo sweet and all had there own charisma and characteristics .

Yesterday and today would be a favorite day of Samsons  with all the snow we got ..

Apologies to Athena and Apollo for getting those two mixed up. 💖.

I’m glad Athena  likes having Samson’s pink bunny (and you)  for comfort.

Apollo definitely  knew how to give you the stink eye when taking his picture!

And Samson’s “mug shot” is so handsome!!  He is a Hollywood RockStar for sure!!  His close ups show how magnificent he is👍
