On May 20th my golden retriever passed away at only 4 years old from cancer. We took him to the vet thinking he swallowed a rock which is something he loved to do and were given the grim diagnosis of terminal cancer. Thank God he only had one bad day and I held on to him and told him how much I love him until he passed. I had such a special bond with him that when he left it felt like a part of me did too. He was always with me every night sharing the couch half draped over me while we watched tv and then sleeping between my husband and me with his head on my pillow snorning in my ear. He touched every part of our lives and it seems so empty without him. The love that he gave back was immeasurable and he is missed so much. I love you Sammy-Doo!!!
