Our oldest rescue, Sam has been with us since July 4, 1993. Hiking on a rainy fourth, we stopped for ice cream in Floyd. Sam was chasing passing cars on 220. We brought him home and cleaned his tick covered body. Sam has seen many fosters come and go and is waiting for the day when again he will be our only dog.

Oct. 1992-Sept. 19, 2008 We miss you old buddy.

Weep for me though I am gone into the gentle night, Grieve if you will but not for long Upon my soul’s sweet flight. I am at peace, my soul’s at rest, There is no need for tears. For with your love I was so blessed For all those many years. There is no pain, I suffer not, The fear is all now gone. Put these things out of your thoughts, In memory, I live on. Remember not the fight for breath, Remember not the strife, Please do not dwell upon my death, but celebrate my life.
