"A pet is never truly forgotten until it is no longer remembered."

~~Lacie Petitt

Samantha Ann June 15, 1990 -- Jan 26, 2005 My darling Samantha,

Mommy misses you so much. You have been gone 7 years but it seems like only yesterday that I held you in my arms one last time. Where I see you in my dreams is mostly in a field of bluebonnets running and playing, where sometimes all I could see was the tip of your tail. I remember how much you loved chasing butterflies and how you never gave up trying to catch them. I remember how you, me and Uncle Bennie would drive up to Bryan every April and find the same field of bluebonnets and sit under the same tree and have a picnic of cheese and fruit, and did you love strawberries and apples. I remember how we'd stop in Hempstead on the way home and buy you a cup of vanilla ice cream, me a strawberry cone and Uncle Bennie a chocolate cone from the Tastee Freeze. I remember how we'd stop at the Farmer's Market and I'd let you "TALK" to the horses on the other side of the fence and they'd "TALK" back to you. So much I remember but mostly I remember how much I loved you and you loved me.

Now my sweet baby, I see you in that same field running with Shelby while you teach her how to chase butterfies. There is room in my heart for both my girls and for my other girl, Mona too. Someday we will meet again but in until then you both will be ever in my heart.

Mom closed her eyes and said she could almost see her precious Doxies, Ginger, Bart, and Tiffany running through that same meadow.

Thank you for your comment on Pippa's from Mona and Roxie.

One of our dogs went to the bridge in 2005 too, and another in 2006. So hard.

Some days we remember them more than others.Never forgotten though. How can we forget such loving animals?
