My Sampson

by Tonya McCartney
(Leland NC)

My Sampson started his life in my hands. I was co-owner of a female boston terrier and when she had puppies I literally delivered Sampson. I decided to keep Sampson as my payment in owning the female.

What a priceless treasure he has been to me. Sampson has been with me through the loss of my mother and my father. Sampson was with me through my recovery after cancer. When family members went back to work and school, Sampson laid beside me sleeping every day, and every step I took so did he. Sampson lived 16 full years with me and my family. I often told all of my friends and family that I didn't know what I would do if anything happened to Sampson.

I recently went on a trip to Florida and when I got back my husband told me that Sampson died while I was away laying in the sun. He was sleeping and just never got up. I really feel that Sampson waited for me to be away so that I would not have to be present at losing another loved one. I wish he would have waited.

I am truly sorry for the loss of your loyal Sampson. I recently lost my girl, Margo, in December of last year.

Although the loss never ceases, I have begun to find solace and comfort in other areas of my live, which Margo taught me. For example, Margo taught me that about unconditional love, preseverance, and tolerance, even in the worst situations. I am a nurse, so her memory brings so much value and purpose in my profession.

Once the initial shock and grieving have ceased, from what you are sharing in your memorial, you will surely identify certain character in Sampson's personality that will bring joy and purpose for you.

Good Luck, and thank you for sharing.

He lived a long happy life I'm sure. Count yourself blessed that you had him as long as you did. That's a ripe age for a dog. Think of all the wonderful times you had together and the smiles he brought!

I wish I could have grown old with Trog. The pain just doesn't seem to stop.

Take care.

Right now your Sampson is playing in the sun and will be waiting for you. Think of it as just a detour untill you see your little man again.
