Sami 1998-2012

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!
