Star's Sam Houston
He was the lickin-est dog I've ever met. He was stubborn and silly and just the greatest family member any dog could be. There couldn't be another like him- that's for sure.
Sam was almost 10 - old for a boxer. We knew he had a heart condition but never imagined losing him so suddenly. It's the saddest feeling to know we won't get any more "kisses" or snuggles from him. I wasn't ready.
I can look back over the years and remember all the good stuff and even the not-so-good stuff, like how he destroyed our house twice a day for the 1st 2 weeks we had him. I can also remember how he bounced and wiggled and crab-walked because he was just happy to see us or be talked to.
I just can't face going home and not hearing him or seeing him or having him sneak up from behind to lick my hand anymore. He was noble and beautiful and perfect. No one can take his place and I just wish I could have him back.
