He always wanted to be in touch with one of his humans. He was a 185lb cuddle pup who was most content when in physical contact with one or more of us. He lived in @Nitrobunny ’s back pocket.Awww, Sampson was a lap dog. Thank you for making his last 15 months so special.
well, keeping with the dog theme - "leave sleeping dogs lie" and not spoken "ohh, record cold next few days .. watch our furnace break" coming into house Monday early evening that. Maybe I subconsciously noted fire up failures prior.There is something terribly jarring about this sentence.
I remember that picture - it was heart-wrenching. Sorry you’re going through this again so soon.Somewhere way back in this thread should be a picture of me and Wolfgang, our St. Bernard of 10 years and a dog who had no equal in our family. Wolfgang passed peacefully at home in May of 2017. He had cancer. Months later the wife asked me to go to an adoption event where there were a couple rescue Saints. We ended up bringing home a large zen male named Sampson. He had a lot of problems and @Nitrobunny sunk her heart and soul into him. We got his teeth fixed, put some weight him, figured out his food allergies, and had a pretty happy big boy despite a couple fused discs in his lower spine and some issues neither us or a couple vets could quite nail down. Well we lost Sampson this past month after 15 months with us. Cancer again and a large brain tumor. He was the most zen beast you could hope to meet. I had forgotten about this thread until it popped up in my alerts today for like the first time ever..... Anyway, just thought I’d memorialize Sampson here and share a photo. View media item 3153
She an IG? we had 2 of them for almost 13 years - miss those little guyson happier note .. our current foster picked up yesterday night .. was only -10 below when Kimba got here.
today our high was -16F ... and luckily our furnace guy was able to get a mother board to fix the furnace that failed Monday night.
with another cold night outside, Kimba I'm sure is happy the house is warm again!
Another 13 yr old ... previous owners gave up when wife got a job further out and she was home 12 hrs a day alone. Owner noted upon handoff that wife didn't come for fear of breaking down in tears. one super sweet little girl.
