Just got an email regarding Samson’s Home Again subscription, It brought me to me knees having to log in and list him as deceased …. Makes miss him even more , wasn’t ready for this . Just when I was starting to feel better .. 

And I would swear his spirit came to visit the other night , I went to sleep and I know I turned the tv off then around 1-2 am the tv came on and stayed on till 6am !!!!! I know it had to be him, that stinker !!

Yeah, those “automatic update” reminders are rough.  We  completely.   They got you like a ton of bricks out of nowhere and the wall of grief overtakes you again.  Yeah, we get it.

I’m so glad yohmposted those pictures though.  It was Samson way of remind you, reminding  us, what a happy earth life he had with you. 

That picture with him. covered  in snowflakes and crystals  on his shiny fur was actua quite stunning.  A very “artsy” photo.  And of course, any picture of Samson  with one of his gazzillion toys is always priceless.

The picture you posted with basically just his handsome  self highlighted and the contract between his black and tan coloring….BEAUTIFUL!!!!

I’m going to give you a link to Artpix3D.com.  That picture of Samson would be stunning in one of their crystal remembrances.  I can just invision it in their heart shape piece.  Anyway, take a look at their site and see what you think.   

Hugs 

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 … I am checking them out now , and I think your gonna be right with that frame for him …

It’s still just so NOT right clearing snow outside without him there barking at me or the snowblower , or getting covered in snow when he would jump up at the load of snow being thrown from the shovel or jumping and snapping at snowballs tossed his way… Just , I don’t know .. Lonely or eerie and empty now .

That sweet boy, he totally visited you to give you strength so that you could handle the email that came your way. And in that snowstorm, every snowflake had his pawprint, surrounding you with his strong, loving spirit.

It’s hard not to fall apart when handling the “admin duty” of handing a beloved loved one’s passing. It’s a hard reminder. No way around it. I’m sending you lots of love and hugs.

Well today officially makes it 4 months since my beautiful boy Samson crossed over unexpectedly…

And honestly it hurts just as much now as it did then , I miss him even more now cause I know he’s not here physically only in spirit.

I keep finding myself waiting for him to greet me when I pull up in the drive or at the door waiting with the nubby wiggling and the butt moving back and forth just waiting for those big bear hugs and rare kisses . .  Or laying in front of the door blocking me from coming in and when I do come in him doing figure 8’s between my legs and lifting me up… I find myself just sitting in my truck waiting to see him , or staring at him bed , or looking down when I’m at my desk waiting to see him laying there .   I talk to him every morning and night .. But the silence now without him is deafening…

My 2 girls just started to play with there bones again, but only for small bursts. They stare at his bed , his toys , and him as he rests on the book case   .. And Athens can be found staring at the spot where he passed away right next to me beside my desk …

Today I celebrate his life and all that he ment to me and all he did for me . I celebrate how much he meant to me and how much I loved him .. He will always be in my thoughts and my heart …

And yet it pains me so that he is gone … Tears of joy in rememberance , tears of sorrow ..

Just a few pic of Samson that are special to me ..for him and everything he did and gave me..

Awwww thank you for sharing those photos on such a bittersweet day. They show so much of Samson’s personality! What a joyful life he had. It wasn’t long enough but what time he did spend on this planet he sure made the most of having fun with your pack.

Today I celebrate his life and all that he ment to me and all he did for me . I celebrate how much he meant to me and how much I loved him .. He will always be in my thoughts and my heart …

We celebrate him too. Thank you for sharing your heart and soul dog with us.
