Sam, Sammy, Sammy-Doo the Springer that will be missed

Do Not Disturb
Rescued from at farm at 18 months my dad appeared with this crazy dog that didnt just run everywhere at full pelt, noooo he ran everywhere at full pelt - in circles!
He slotted right in to the family and when nephew no1 arrived we were a bit pensive as he'd never met a baby before, he ignored him!
But as they both grew they were the best of friends, Sam instincively knowing his job was to protect this wee boy... and the next wee boy and girl that quickly followed! Afterall they were a great source of food ;)
He was so patient with them and they loved him, as did we all.
He loved a snuggle on the couch with me or a roll about play fight, he knew when he'd gone too far an his apologies were big slobbery kisses till you laughed.
He'd loved bringing the post or the paper to you and of all his toys he'd be happiest with an empty envelope!
As he was a rescue he was so grateful for a very loving home and huge family that spoiled him.. hence the name Fatboy!
Cancer took him away far too soon and after a major op in august it had come back bigger and badder on his liver we couldnt let him suffer again, it was time to say night night.
Night Night Sam, ill love u always and ill meet u at Rainbow Bridge in time xxxxxxReturn to Springer Spaniel MemorialReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
