a one and million Sheltie has crossed over the bridge at the age
of 17 years & 9 months.
She touch the hearts of all and especially one family who she lived
with for 12 years.
12 years ago: It
came to my attention that my cousin was unable to have children,
they were on a long list waiting to adopt a child but the wait was
too much for my cousin and she became very depressed. At that time
Sam was only 5 years of age, since she was never enamored with the
shows, her heart was in living at home being the great house dog
and friend that she was to me.
first thought was how can I help my cousin, I looked at Sam and
thought yes, I would offer Sam to my cousin. Sam had a great ability
to comfort you when you were sad and could always make you smile.
I called my cousin and offered Sam to her and told her what a great
Sheltie she is and that she would help her during this bad time.
My cousin hesitated on taking on a dog at the age of 5 but I persisted
and brought Sam up to meet my cousin & her husband. In minutes
after meeting Sam, the smile that my cousin had lost for so long
was now back and my cousin fell in love with her. I knew immediately
this is where Sam had to live.
after Sam becoming a part of their family, my cousin called me with
great news, a young baby boy was available for adoption. It truly
was great news for all, Sam with her new family and now a new baby
boy, the family was complete.
lived a long and happy life with her new family bringing joy to
all who met her. My cousin said, they could not walk Sam down the
street without someone stopping them to say "what a beautiful
dog you have". Sadly on May 16th, 2005 Samantha passed away
quietly at home with her family she loved dearly. The family was
devastated with Sam's passing but my cousin was grateful for the
time they had with her and the joy she brought to their family.
story does not stop here: My cousin again was a list waiting to
adopt a second child and not even two hours after Sam passed away
my cousin received a call from the adoption agency, a young 5 year
old girl was available for adoption, she has auburn hair and her
name is Samantha.
cousins tears of sorrow for the loss of Samantha is now mixed with
tears of happiness on the arrival of their new daughter. This story
has come full circle with Sam entering their lives at the age of
5 bringing such happiness for over 12 years and now the miracle
of joy with the arrival of their new daughter Samantha.
Sam was a Champion in every way with her zest for life and a Loving
Heart that she gave so freely, she will always be treasured in our
hearts.. With Love from All, Samantha we will truly miss you and
we thank you for being apart of our Lives....
