Sorry we have been awhile for a little while. Just wanted to thank all of our blog friends who have left us comments, emailed us, sent cards, called us, texted us, just reached out to us with the loss of Samick. It was a hard loss and we are still trying to recover. Mom is doing better, she isn't crying as much anymore...well that was until yesterday. The mailman dropped off a card and dad opened it, he started to cry and mom was like oh no...but she opened it and was very touched. Dr. Knapp sent a hand written card with condolences over the lose of our sweet boy. He included two really nice white cards that said Samick on them and had Samick's two paw prints on them and a keep sake card with the Rainbow Bridge poem on it. That really made the tears come out when mom saw that. Mom wants to make a shadow box that will hold Samick's collar, tags, his paw prints from Dr. Knapp and some photos and put it in our living room so he can always been with us. Our house is pretty quite without him here. We miss sweet Samick very much.

Here is a photo of me from the Ohio State Fair. Sorry I was all wet in the photo but mom thought that old tree stump would make a nice photo. What do you think?



  1. You look adorable... soaking wet or not!

    Sometimes getting cards or mementos days later just when you think you are "okay" starts "it" all over again.... take at 1 day at a time. Cry, yell, laugh, smile, look at pictures, cry some more... There's no rush on grieving over Samick. (((HUGS)))

  2. I know it is so darn hard. We are purring for the day soon when the memories will make your hearts smile.

  3. I love the picture. You know how I feel about being all wet......

    Give your family a snuggle from us. We understand that time will work its magic but at its own speed.

    And sometimes speed to time is not what we think it should be.

    Take care


  4. Sorry I have been away from the blogs for a while so I just learned your unfortunate news. Me and Ellie send our condolences to you and your family. It's a very hard loss, but Samick will be remembered forever and always loved. <3

  5. As we have said to others in the same place as you are with the loss of Samick, it is very hard and very sad. But with time the sadness diminishes and you can concentrate on remembering all the good times. That's where all those beautiful photos you have are so helpful. Hugs to all.

    And Sagira, that is a great pic of you, wet or not!

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  6. I am glad you are hanging in there, it is so hard to have such a huge loss or such a huge part of your family that has meant so much ;-(. I love the picture!

  7. That is a beautiful photo of Sagira. We really understand the loss of Samick and how very hard it is to go takes a lot of tears and time to heal. Lots of hugs to you and lots of love too. Debbie & Holly

  8. I think the Shadow Box is a very good idea.

  9. It just takes time - the hurt lessens eventually but the memories stay forever and come flooding back when ever you need them - hugs, woofs and lickies

  10. The shadow box is a great idea! Glad you guys are doing a little better. And I love Sagira's photo from the fair!

  11. Many of us know the sorry of losing our sweet and beloved friends and so we can empathise with your pain. We know that Samick will always be with you.

    Sagira, you always look stunning!


  12. My heart skipped a beat when I saw this! You are SO beautiful, Miss Blue Eyes!

  13. I had a vet send me a card when my sweet kitty passed too. I was really surprised because no vet had done that for me before. I still have the card.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I think of you often and keep you in my prayers.


Thanks for leaving me a comment. I LOVE reading all the comments.
