R.I.P. Sam Boyd
I am so sad to post that our beloved Sam passed away overnight :( He had started to make a comeback last week and was actually eating and walking around pretty good. On Thursday he stopped eating again and by Friday he could no longer walk. I had him by my side at all times since he whimpered for me when I was not in his sight and when I would sit down beside him, he would put his front paws on my hand and give me the look like he knew he was not going to be with us much longer. I told him how brave he had been and that we loved him and that it was okay to let go. When I went to bed last night, I put him in our room and wrapped him up in a warm blanket and he quietly passed away while we slept. I am devastated, he was my "baby"and was always by my side. I am missing his wonderful hound howl that he would let out when we came home and the snuggles he gave as he buried himself under all our blankets at night to keep me warm on chilly nights. He will always be loved and remembered and he wouldn't want us to be sad, but right now it is all I can do to hold back tears. Of all the dogs we have had, Sam was mine, and I am blessed to have had him in our lives for 7 of his 10 yrs of life. If ever we get another dog, it will have to be another beagle as they have the best personalities! So the sun shined this morning long enough for us to bury him, and than it got cold and windy and rainy. My son Rhys wants to have a funeral for him so we are going to place a rock on Sam's site with his name on it and plant some flowers. We miss you dear Sam, Love MOM ,xoxo
I have some happier news from last week, but I will share them in a bit. Hope you are all having a good weekend and staying warm!
Hugs and blessings, Trish
