Best Friends, Parted

Sharing from my photo blog

The Moments Between

A link to “Best Friends”, a poem about Samantha and the wild rabbit in the back yard.

Samantha, 2008-2016 Samantha, 2008-2016

Samantha had an infection that quickly went septic. When we went to the emergency animal hospital, the veterinarian gave her a sedative before the examination. And so, after we discussed options, we were able to spend some time with her before she was put to sleep.

She was a joy-filled dog who kept us active and laughing. We miss her immensely. Her partner (we’ve always had two dogs until now) was born January 8, 1999 and died on December 31, 2012. She missed him, but did decide that she enjoyed being the only puppy, and so we put off finding another to take Rascal’s place. We have never been without a dog. I don’t think that we can manage without.

  1. I’m sorry to hear about Samantha. She was a lovely, loving dog. I can appreciate her call that being the only dog was just fine. I’m sad that she’s gone but thankful that she was in so good a home.

    The photograph is endearing.


    • Thanks. She will be missed for a long time. We’ve delivered her body, now, for cremation. Crying a lot together. Taking extra care to be good to and do nice things for each other while the loss is so immediate. Reminds us again of the love we have for each other. And to demonstrate it. (Al just brought me another cup of coffee.) ::smile::
