Welcome to Samantha's Rainbow Bridge Memorial Residency
Memories of Samantha
When I took that special ride on 10/13/90 to get my shih tzu Samantha, my life was changed forever. She was 1 pound at 6 weeks old and grew into a tough and happy 10 pound dog. I would run home from work as fast as I could to see her as she would make me smile every day. We moved together many times across 5 states and Sammie knew she was the first to be packed. We trekked the streets of Manhattan and she strutted like every other New Yorker. Sammie loved her toys and chasing imaginary ones. As long as we had each other, we were both content. She knew that I would take care of her until the end. As she started to age, I carried her more as she walked less, still acting like a tough little girl. For so many years, I was able to share all of my emotions with her knowing fully well that she really did understand. I could always count on her to lick away my tears or kiss me when I was most vulnerable. On Feb. 2nd, Samantha's battle with kidney disease came to an end. I was faced with the hardest and worst decision of my lfe. She was with me for 17 1/2 years. I know that endings are never good, but this was the saddest day of my life. I will never stop loving my Sammie.
