I often wonder why we call them "goodbyes", as they are seldom good. Our Brown Sammie left us yesterday, and for once I am at a loss for words. Sammie was a huge part of our lives for the past 12 years. As such, this is a profound loss. As always, though, we will work through our grief and continue marching onward.
For now, though, I leave you with a little journey of his life on the farm in older posts. Here is a previous blog post about Brown Sammie's youth. You can read about it HERE.
One of the best posts about Sammie's life on the farm can be found HERE.
After yesterday’s post . . . I knew.
I came looking for your post when I woke up . . .
Sad . . . very sad . . . for each of you.
Sammie was a joy . . . a people’s pet . . .
Loved his getting right in the middle with children . . .
Thank you for telling some of his life stories, pictures, video.
My heart and hugs . . .

I love the picture of him standing on the roof and the video of him playing with the cat. May these memories and others bring you comfort and peace.
Hugs from me and Dozer
My deepest sympathies to you and your husband.
I hope dear Sammie just laid down to take a snooze and that was it! I hope you didn't have to have Becky help him over the Bridge!!
We shall ALL miss him!! 💖🐕🦺
Sammie had a good life although they leave us too soon.
He was one of the lucky ones; a home where he knew he was safe and loved.
Rest in Peace, little one. xo
A good dog never dies, he always stays,
he walks besides you on crisp autumn days
when frost is on the fields and winter’s drawing near,
his head within our hand in his old way.
We feel your pain and sorrow . . . Sammie - forever loved.
Saying a prayer for you and your husband to be comforted in this terrible loss.
I'm so sorry he won't be in your daily life, and ours, we'll all miss him.
