Samson was a very special pup. He was the runt of the litter and very shy but as he grew so did his personality. Samson and I have been through a great deal together and he was my rock through some very difficult times. Samson lived a long and happy life. We had many talks of when it would be time to cross over to the Rainbow Bridge. I use to always say, Just let Mommy know when and all will be good. I would sing him a song which we liked, because he would always give me sloppy kisses after I was done singing. That song was "You are my Sunshine" and he was. Five years ago Samson was diagnosed with Cushings and because of his age I made the decision not to have exploratory surgery. The vet found a tumor which he thought was just fatty tissue but wouldn't be sure without the surgery. Samson did very well throughout the next 4 1/2 years. Two years ago I adopted Lexi, a Shepard/Lab mix. She did wonders for Samson. He had a renewed spirit and held his own during playtime. On May 7th Samson stopped eating. He wouldn't even take a treat. When ever I came home from work, as soon as the garage door opened, I could hear him barking, "Mommy's home". That same day I came home and there was no barking. I thought I had lost him but I made him promise he wouldn't go anywhere until I could be with him. Finally on May 9th I took him to the vet and I knew it was time. My heart was broken. As a pet owner,it's the hardest thing to do is to let your pet go but I knew and so did Samson. I could see it in his eyes, he just wasn't there anymore. As he was crossing over I hugged him, kissed him and sang him his song. I'm crying now just remembering. I miss you so much my sweet boy. I know you had a great life but I so long to hug you again. It's not the same around here and even Lexi acts differently. We both miss you so. Run free my love, find Sheba, Grandma and Grandpa and I'll see you soon.|
May 25 2014 Hi Sammy baby, I hope you made it to the bridge ok. Has Sheba found you yet? I miss the two of you so much. It's been two weeks and I'm so sad not seeing you here. Mommy's trying not to cry and be sad but I can't help it. I just want to hug you so much. When ever Mommy needed a hug you were always there. I miss your barky bark, which I knew I would. I know you're feeling better and running and playing with Sheba. I'll see you soon.
June 2, 2014 Hi Samson pup, how are you? I know you're feeling better and able to move around more.I found a penny at work yesterday, and as the saying goes, "pennies from heaven mean someone is thinking of you". Were you thinking of Mommy yesterday? I miss you so. Lexi does too. Talk to you soon.
June 5th, Welcome home Samson. I picked up your ashes from the vet today. Now I feel you in the house again. I hugged your urn and cried, but cried with semi happy tears cause I get to hug you again. It's not the same as before but I can feel your spirit in the house. I even let Lexi smell the urn and I think she knows it you too. Miss your barky bark, and all of you. Talk to you again
June 10 HI Sammy, I missed you on my birthday very much. I know how much better you feel and your running free and playing with Sheba. I still look at pictures of you which I have around the house.
Love you much and miss you more.
June 13th, Hi Baby Sammy, how are you? I hope your feeling better. Lexi and I miss you so much. Today is Sheba's birthday so I hope you found her and are helping her celebrate. In another month it will be your birthday. I can't tell you enough how much I love you and I hope you always know that. I'll see you soon. Love Mommy
July 14, Happy Belated birthday Sammy. You know Mom didn't forget I just didn't get a chance to wish you a happy birthday. I miss you so much. Just hugging you always made me feel better. I miss your barky bark and all the funny things you use to do. Lexi caught a groundhog yesterday. I tried saving it but I was too late. Not much new going on here. I miss you so much but we will be together again one day. Hugs and sloppy kisses
Aug 26th, Hi Sammy, How are you? I know you're feeling better and now able to run and play like a pup again. I miss you so. I can't believe it's been over 3 months. I still come home from work and listen for your bark. Lexi doesn't bark when I come home. We had a great time together. You were my rock when things were going bad. I hope you found Sheba. I'll look for the two of you when its my turn to cross over. Love you lots and miss hugging you. Oh, its National Dog Day and I just wanted to give you hugs and kisses. Love you and miss you.
Sept. 18 HI Sammy boy, how are you? I've been up for a few hours because I was having a dream about you and I woke up sad. Sad because you're not here. I was remembering when we use to go to the park, the one where you could roam free and how much fun we had. I wanted to take you back there one more time but never got to. I just miss you so much. I still have a hard time believing you're gone. Cousin Beamer crossed over on Sept 9, 4 months after you. He really wasn't doing well. He wasn't loved as much as I love you. I feel so bad. I wish he could have come to live with us. I would have taken care of him. Well, I'm off today so I'm going back to bed for a little bit then I have lots to do. Lexi sends here love, I know you really didn't care for her, but she did keep you on your toes, when she wasn't nipping at your legs. I love you bunches and I'll visit again soon. Have fun baby!!!!!!!!!!!
Oct. 5 2014 Good morning Sammy, how are you today? I sometimes find it hard to believe you are gone. I can still feel you around the house. I have your pictures on the wall with Sheba. The two of you are the loves of my life. I long to be able to hug you again. It's been almost 5 months and sometimes it feel like you never left and other days like you've been gone a lifetime. I wonder why God allows us to form such a strong bond with our pets, then they have to go away. We were meant to be together and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there for me. I think of you every day. Lexi is doing fine. She's into her terrible two's, but she's doing good. I sometimes want another doggy to love, but it's too soon for that. Once the perfect one, like you and Sheba come into my life I will know. Have a good day, run and play and have fun. Miss you
Dec 10th 2014 Hi Samson, I hope you're feeling better. I miss you so. I just visited Sheba. I hope you have found her. You use to sit and protect her, remember. I'll upload a picture when I can to remind you. Lexi is doing good. She needs another buddy but I just can't bring myself to have another dog just yet. I love you so and know you're doing better. I will never forget the look in your eyes when we went to the vet. You were saying "Please don't leave me" I would never leave you. You were with me through the hard times and I promised I'd never let you go alone. I hope you understand that I would have done anything in the world to have you here longer. I think you know that.
Dec 23 2014 Hi Sammy, It's almost Christmas and I'm sad because this is the first one without you. I just visited Sheba and I was telling her how much I miss the two of you. It's funny how humans come and go and I don't think much about it, but the two of you are carved in my heart forever. Lexi is doing good, but she's still young and doesn't realize how lucky she is, like most kids. LOL I put a Christmas tree up for you and Sheba. I'll be back on Christmas Day. I have your ornament hung on the mantel. Love you so.
Dec 25 2014 MERRY CHRISTMAS SAMSON, Mommy misses you so. This is our first Christmas apart but I can still feel you with me. Your presence will always be here. Christmas isn't the same without your little barky barks and "fighting" Lexi for your bones. Love you and miss you.
March 9th 2015 I Sammy, sorry it's been such a long time since I visited. I think about you every day and night, I've just been distracted. I hope you're feeling better and know that I love you so much. It will be almost a year soon and it feels like you're still here. You were such a quiet doggy, except with the barky barks, but I loved them all the same. I wanted to change out the scenery at your site, so you will know spring is coming soon. I miss you and Sheba so much. Love you
April 28 2015 Hi Sammy, It's so hard to believe that it will be a year soon that you went to the Rainbow Bridge. I miss you so much. You and I traveled a long road together and you helped me through some very hard times. I love you so and will be back soon to visit.
May 9th 2015. Hi Samson, it's been a year today that you went to the Rainbow Bridge. I've been very sad the past two days. I miss you so much. I just can't believe a year has gone by. I miss your bark and the cute way you would let me know you wanted out. You and I have been through alot together and I owe you my life and sanity. What I wouldn't give to hug you and Sheba one more time. I hope you're doing better and running and playing. Love you
June 13 2015 Hi Sammy, I was visiting Sheba for her birthday and wanted to say HI, miss you so much.
Sept. 7 2015 Hi Samsonpup, How are you? I couldn't sleep so I wanted to see how you were. I miss you so much. Just laying on the floor snuggling with you use to make me feel so good. Lexi is not a snugger. I hope you're feeling better and have regained your strength and your spirit. I'll never forget that look in your eyes when I took you to the vet. I don't know if you realized what was going on but I had no intention of leaving you. I love you so and miss you more.
Nov 25 2015 Hi Samson pup, how are you? I miss you so. I took Lexi to the park, you know the one you like so much. She didn't like it. I think I have to get her out more. She was freaking out. We didn't stay long. Lexi is so much different than you or Sheba. I love her but I miss you so. Happy turkey day. I'll visit again soon.
Dec. 17 2015 Hello my Sammy dog, a day doesn't go by I don't think of you. I miss you so much. It's still just me and Lexi, I want to bring another soul into the house, but can't seem to find the right one. When the time is right, I'm sure they will find me. Whitney and Willow both crossed over last month. I'm sure you've seen them by now. I hope you're getting along with them. I'll come vist you next week for Christmas. Love you much
Dec 25 2015 MERRY CHRISTMAS SAMSON, I miss you so much. You and Sheba were such a big part of my life, which hasn't been the same since. Lexi and I are spending Christmas together. She got a new toy and loves it. I told her I was going to vist you and she looks at your urn and knows it's you. She misses you too. I hope you're feeling better. When ever I see stars in the sky, I know you and Sheba are smiling down on me. I can still feel your love and always will. We'll be together again. You go play with Sheba and I'll see you again soon. Love and miss you.
Feb 3 2016 Hi Sammy, how are you? I know your better and playing with Sheba. I miss you so much. I look at your pictures and see such a sweet face. You were and still are a good dog. I'll see you soon. Love you
March 20 2016 Hi Samson,how are you today? I miss you so much. I hope you and Sheba are playing nice. Lexi is doing good. I'm also doing well. I miss the barky bark you had and snuggling with you. Lexi is not a snuggler. Well I try not to get sad and only think happy thoughts. Love you lots
April 27th 2016 Good morning Sammy, I know you're doing well cause you have Sheba to watch over you. I love you more and more and can't believe it will soon be a whole year since you went to the Rainbow bridge. Some times it only seems like yesterday and other times it feels like you've been gone forever. Love you
May 9th, 2016 Hi Sammy, It's been two years since you went to the bridge, and I still miss you so. I can't believe time has gone by so fast. It seems just like yesterday that you were here, but you still are. I have pictures and your urn, I never feel lonely. I'm glad you're running free and healthy. I miss snuggling with you and your sweet smile. When it's my time, I'll be looking for you and Sheba. Love you, you are my sunshine.
June 13 2016, Hi Samson, Mommy misses you so much. That sweet barky bark, I wish I would have recorded it. At times it would annoy me and I knew one day I'd miss it. Today is Sheba's birthday. Be nice to her. Until we meet again, have fun
Nov 7th 2016 Hello Sammy, I'm sorry it's been so long since I visited. I miss you so much. I'd give anything to have just one day with you to hug you and sing to you. Mommy will never forget how you took care of her through the hardest times of her life. If it wasn't for you I wouldn't be here to write this. You gave me a reason to live. I'm feeling sad today. Don't know why but I just miss you, Sheba, Mom and Dad, so much. Every night I say Goodnight to all of you and I sleep much better. I'll be looking for you at the Rainbow Bridge when I get there. I hope you remember me. Love you to the moon and back.
Dec 24 2016 Merry Christmas Samson, wish you could be here with me and Lexi. I visited Sheba and told her how much I wish I could hug her. I'd give anything to spend time with the two of you again. On day. Now make sure you behave so Santa will stop by. Love and miss you so.
Feb 10th 2017 Hi Sweet Samson, how are you feeling? I'm sure much better. Don't know if Sheba told you but your Uncle Warren passed away. I have been very sad, thinking of him, Mommy, Daddy, Sheba and you. I miss all of you so much. Now I'm alone. Yes I still have Lexi, she's my rock right now, it now the same. Well just wanted to stop by to say HI and give you a BIG HUG.
April 30th Hi Sammy pup, I know you're doing well. I hope you're not teasing Sheba too much.
May 9th 2017 Hi my love, it was 3 years ago today you crossed over. My heart still hurts, cause I miss you so. You were such a happy puppy and you helped Mommy through some hard times, which I'll never be able to thank you for. I truly believe if it wasn't for you I wouldn't have survived. I will never forget the look on your face when we went to the vet. I would never leave you alone. What I wouldn't give to hug and kiss you again. Love you so and miss you more.
July 13th, Happy Birthday my sweet Samson, I miss you more and more each day. I know you're feeling better and playing like a pup. I wish I could be with you again, one day I will. Don't forget to meet me. I told Sheba to be nice to you today, LOL, I'm sure she'll tell you. Lexi is doing good and getting along with Simba quite well. Well you run and play and Mommy will see you soon. Love you
Oct. 12, Hi Samson, sorry I haven't visited but I haven't felt well. Getting better now. I had a scare with Lexi. She got real sick and I almost let her go to be with you, but I saw in her eyes, she wan't ready. After medication she is now back to normal. I think and miss you and Sheba so much. You may have seen Baylee up in heaven. She left us on Mon. You remember Baylee, your girlfriend from next door? It's so sad. Love you and miss you so much. We'll be together soon.
Dec 23 2017 Hi Sammy, I stopped by to visit you and Sheba cause I miss you so much. I think of you everyday. All is well here, just miss you so. Lexi and Simba are both doing good. I tell them about you and Sheba all the time. I don't know if you'd like Simba, but then I didn't think Lexi would either. I'll be back in a few days. Love you lots and miss you more.
Jan 5th 2018 Hi sweet Samson, you were such a sweet boy and I miss you so. Hope you and Sheba had a good Christmas and New Years.

May 9th 2020 Hi Sammy, I'm sorry it's been so long. The world has gone totally crazy. But I could never forget the day you crossed over. Six years ago, I can't believe it's been so long. I miss you so and have never stopped thinking of you. I'd love to give you a big hug, so close your eyes and feel my arms around you. You were such a sweet doggy. I can't wait to see you again.

Dec 1 2020 Hi sweet boy, how are you? I talk to you every night before I go to sleep. I know you heard me. Have you and Lexi met up yet? I hope so. All my fur babies are gone. I'm so sad and lonely. We had so much fun together. You will always be my sunshine. Love you
