9/4/2016Sammy loved the water but not the rain. We took her camping on Memorial weekend the first year we had her. The rain fell in buckets. My husband Jesse opened the truck to get something and Sammy jumped into the front seat and whimpered. She would not get out until we went to bed in our tent that night.

Sammy loved camping, swimming, catching balls and sticks in the water and in a field. She loved going on Boy Scout outings, Camp Fire outings, the beach, chasing balls, taking walks, and she always got muddy helping us pick out our Christmas tree. As long as she was with us she was happy.

Sammy suffered separation anxiety but after a few month with us and constant reassurance she felt better.

Sammy protected our children and gave us so much love. She was patient and forgiving. The decision to let her go was for her not for us. I know she is in heaven with my dad and grandparents.

I am so sorry for your loss. It sounds like Sammy was quite the character - a personality to cherish forever ; I enjoyed your stories. I am trying to figure out the right time for my 15 yr old cat , Curly, who actually meows; mom to me.
It is uplifting to hear your story

I was honored to help Sammy earn her angel wings, and being surrounded by the family she adored was the best final gift you could give her. She was a beautiful girl, and I know she will be missed.Lori Braun - September 6, 2016
