Last Thursday I left for the Mystic, Connecticut art festival. I was very excited and I had stopped at Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory and made my way to Essex to photograph the steam train. First have to say that the weather in Connecticut was so humid I had a hard time dealing with it. Photographing while in Connecticut was difficult and disappointing. I did get some shots, but not much. The show was good and I will attend it next year, and hopefully the weather will be more cooperative.
But while in Connecticut my dog Sami was fading away. When I had left she didn't seem to be showing any signs of problems, but over the weekend Mom had told me she was having a hard time getting up and eating. We thought she was just being stubborn. Sami had always been a stubborn dog. 2 years ago Sami was diagnosis with diabetes and like a trooper took her insulin without issues. She also had arthritis in her hips and was gradually getting worse. I came home from Connecticut and we decide to take Sami to the Vet and to our surprise she was shutting down. The Vet said maybe a month. When she stops eating and can't take her insulin it would be time. Well that time came 2 days later much too soon. Sami struggled with walking and was becoming disoriented and we knew as did she it was time. Just 2 months after my dog Ben had past now Sami. I know in my heart she is in a better place and feeling no pain and is with Ben.
We now have 1 dog left Blu and she is the oldest and the last of the 3. It feels odd to be walking and caring for only 1 dog. We will someday adopt another, but in the mean time Blu has all our attention and I know she will take every bit in.
Sami had always been a happy dog. I called her wiggles because she was always wagging that beautiful tail. She seemed to always have a smile.
This happy wiggly dog will be truly missed.
I love you Sami!
Take some time and hug your pet!
