Sammy at Rainbow Bridge Vote for this post

Rainbow Bridge has added another TC Angel.  Our precious Sammy has left us with broken hearts but so many beautiful, precious memories in his almost 14 years. 

Last Fall we noticed Sammy's health declining.  Poor appetite, weight loss.  With  B12 shots and meds we saw his weight improve, we thought he had improved.  Then he developed a nose bleed in April and again in May.  Then the Diarrhea started.  Ultra Sound and  XRays showed a 1 inch mass in his intestinal area.  The diagnosis was Cancer. 

I have had Sammy in Doggie Hospice (my description)  these past 2 months and did everything I could think of to honor our precious Boy.  In this time his breathing was more labored and loud. We are thinking he also had cancer in the nasal passages too.   

On Monday, June 20th he started refusing all food.  Then we noticed he was passing blood.  By Thursday evening we knew it was time.  So on Friday morning the 24th of June, we made the heartbreaking call.  Sammy missed his 14th Birthday by 9 days.

Sammy passed quickly and peacefully, and for that I'm grateful and so blessed to be with him till the end. My precious little man, who brought me smiles at a very sad time in my life, has left me with tears once again.

I know Sammy has so many wonderful, dear TC friends to keep him company at the Bridge.  And I know he will one day meet me when I get there too.  That is one thought that helps me to deal with his passing.

We are so sorry to hear of his passing. The decision to let them go is so heartbreaking as I and so many of our members know all too well.

Run free and pain free at the bridge little one.

Love Sir William ^--^ & Allen & Boomer at the bridge

I'm so sorry to hear this,Jackie.  He was a special little man to all of us.

Please know, we know what you are going through....most of us have been there...it is all so unfair, that they cannot live as long as we do.  Losing them is pure agony....

Love and hugs,
Jeanie and Annabel

Jackie, my heart is breaking for you. So many of us have been where you are now. My Kelsie left less than 3 weeks before her birthday..She also had the dreaded cancer...We keep you in our prayers and hope you can focus on all the good memories you have of Sammy. I'm sure he was greeted by so many TC Angels and they've welcomed him to RB where he can run and play, free from pain.
Love, Deb, Emmie, and Angel Kelsie

Oh Jackie, I'm so sorry to read about Sammy.
That damned cancer takes too many pups.
I know he is running healthy and pain free at the Bridge
with all the other TC pups that had to go before him.
God bless Sammy and hugs to you.

I am so sorry for your loss. Sammy sounds like he was a very special boy. I'm sure he knew how much you loved him and tried to do the best to help him feel better when he was so sick. He has lots of TC friends to play with at the Rainbow Bridge. You will be in my thoughts.

I think most of us knows how hard it was for you to write this and take that last trip to the Vet.  My heart aches for you right now.  I too believe we will be with our pups again as I can't imagine a God that would create us with the ability to love them so deeply to never see them again once they pass. My deepest sympathies.
Forever, Elliot's Kay
