oh oh oh sam you're my main man

This is my dog Sam.
You may recall this picture from a long time ago. Sam is on the left, Ben is on the right. Last year, Ben died of cancer at 7 (8?) years old.

Today, Sam died as well.

There's a huge hole in my heart for the sweet puppy I helped to raise during my last two years of college.

I don't want to go anywhere. I don't want to go to Trixie's house tonight for her party. I want to hole up in a cave and think about Sammy and how he just loved everybody.

I wish I could have seen him one more time, to say goodbye, and to tell him how much I loved him and how much my life has been enriched because he came into it.

I'm so sorry about Sam. Don't stay holed up in the house - go to Trixie's party and toast Sam and how important he was in your life.

Smooches!

Oh, that is so sad. I'm sorry for you and Sam. Do go to the party and like Beth said, happily toast Sam.

I am so sorry for your loss. That is such a sweet picture. Those little buggers sure do get into our hearts, but good, don't they? Sending virtual hugs, but hoping you get plenty of the real kind too.

{{{{ hugs }}}} It is no easier to lose a pet than it is to lose a person.

We love them so much, and their lives are so short. But I wouldn't give mine up for anything.

I tried to post but I think Blogger ate it.

I'm so sorry hon.

And I disagree with your other readers. If I were you (or, more accurately, if I were me) I would blow off Trixie's party and get in the closet with a bottle of wine. (I hide when I'm hurting).

Fuck yeah, I'm with Rabbitch. It's probably too late, but new years parties come every damn year and good friends almost never. Weep, remember, feel sorry if you need to, they are our buddies like anyone else.

The missing eases after awhile and so does the unwarranted guilt. You love them, that's all they want, sweets!

Oh Rebecca, I'm so sorry. I hope you do what your heart tells you to do, stay in or go out.
