Saying GoodBye to Sammie

Paw Prints Left By You
You no longer greet me,
As I , walk through the door.
You’re not there to make me smile,
To make me laugh anymore.
Life seems quiet without you,
You were far more than a pet.
You were a family member, a friend,
… a loving soul I’ll never forget.
It will take time to heal-
For the silence to go away.
I still listen for you,
And miss you every day.
You were such a great companion,
Constant, loyal, and true.
My heart will always wear,
the pawprints left by you.

Most of you know I had to have my beloved cock-a-poo Sammie put to sleep this past Friday .. it was VERY hard for me to do that. I’ve lost beloved pets in the past, but never had to make that decision to have them put to sleep. Needless to say I was feeling VERY guilty and have put it off for quite awhile now. Sammie hadn’t been whining from pain or anything, but he’d been struggling with the steps and finally just stopped even trying to go out ..he’d begun just pottying on the floor (luckily always on the linoleum, but still) and he’d started not seeming to be aware of things like he’d stand zoned off in a daze .. but on the drive to the vet (my mom drove me) I knew it was time, in the past he’d always get anxous and jittery in the car .. he didn’t, he just lay in my arms the whole ride, then while sitting inside the vet room, he never got active, just stayed laying in my arms.. so I knew/know his little body was tired and ready (I’m sorry I’m sitting here crying as I type this out) .. anyways, when I logged in to do a blog for this awesome bedroom gacha set from Bee’s Design, I immediately pictured me laying in my bed loving on Sammie for the last few days before it was time to say g’bye to him for good

  1. I’m sorry for you Munky. I know that feeling. The last look of a pet at you before it falls asleep forever. I never forget that moment. Over time it heals but now and then I see the broken eyes again. I hope you can remember the positive things you had with Sammie and forget about that bad moment yo had when he’s gone. Head up Munky

  3. You did the right thing, Munky, although I know from experience it’s never an easy thing to do. Just think of all the years you had Sammie and enjoyed his company,those are good memories. Dogs are so special. *hhuugggsss*
