Dearest "Little Sam",
I can't tell you how sad it makes me that we will no longer see your ugly little face around here. I guess this proves that even the most cantankerous old beings, must eventually pass. But we, the few fortunate ones who were close to you, know how sweet and dedicated you really were.
I hope you have some idea of how dearly loved you were, and still are, not only by your mother, but by all the people around you... not to mention the MILLIONS of people around the WORLD who were fortunate enough to have even learned your story.
How many ugly, old OR sick dogs have been adopted into loving homes because of you? You have arguably done more to help the K-9 condition than Lassie, Rin Tin Tin, Bengie and all other TV/Movie dogs put together. You and your story have touched the lives of countless millions of people and inspired them to consider something other, than a cute little puppy, and perhaps, maybe even cut down the demand for so many puppy mills. Those are some accomplishments you and your mother can be very proud of!
Hat's Off To You Both!
You will be missed more than you could ever know!
Happy Trails..... Little Sam!!! "
