life so far

And just a couple of weeks ago, the saddest thing happened to our family. Sammy, our golden retriever, decided to leave us all. He was 14 years old. He wasn’t sick at all. On Wednesday he was still bouncy and full of energy when my son took him to the beach. Thursday evening he didn’t want to eat and all he wanted the whole evening was to be outside, lying on the grass. We tried to bring him inside but he went back outside again. That evening and the whole night was raining on and off. He was just lying near the big pot the whole night. The next day we took him to the vet. Basically, the vet said,” he was checking out” so we made the hardest decision to put him to sleep. He went peacefully surrounded by all of us. We love you and we are missing you so much my dearest golden boy. I’m still crying every now and then. Fourteen years he brought joy and smiles to our family. He was particularly my golden boy. He was my therapist when I was feeling blue. He was my loyal kitchen helper, my walking buddy, and my beach companion. He made me laugh when I feel sad just looking at his face. He was a wonderful boy. Rest in love my sweet boy 🌈

I still want to have another dog one day. Maybe sometime next year will see. Meanwhile, my friends, let’s enjoy the last month of 2022 and hope that we will get some time off work to spend with our nearest and dearest.

Love,

OhdearRia

  2. That’s the worst thing about having a pet, that they’re always passed away in your lifetime. I am dreading the moment when that happens to me since I love them with all my heart.

    Hope you are doing fine mba Ria.
