(Samantha's bluebonnet field)

"You left and forgot to tell my heart how to live without you."
~ author unknown

What can I say about my 1st little girl except that she was my life for 14 1/2 years and taught me how to love. I think of her everyday and wish I could push back the clock to when she was a pup and have those years back. Oh the memories!! I thought I could never love anther dog as fiercely as my Samantha, but I was wrong. For 6 years my sweet Mona has had my heart and I know that Samantha would be happy & would love my Mona too. Sleep well my heart until we can be together again............Love Mommy

PS......I would like to thank my friend, Mimi Sullivan, Scout & Freyja's Mom for allowing me to use her words to say what is in my heart .

Samantha was so beautiful. I'm so glad you had each other. She has told everyone at 'The Bridge' what a wonderful Mommy you were to her all those years.

Thanks for following my blog and getting the word out about Dora Jean! I haven't heard anything new but they are still looking!
My mommy knows how your mommy feels with losing your first dog. My mommy lost her beloved Keno in Sept 2005 and my daddy lost his doggie Jaszmine in Dec 2005. When my pawrents moved in together in 2006 they decided they were ready for another dog and that was me who blessed them in August 2006! We may not take the place of the first loves but we certainly know how to make our own little space in our pawrents' hearts!! xoxo Jada
