A woman was taking care of my dog as I had my second lung cancer surgery. she lived in Detroit and me in Toronto. she would come fairly often and i was with my dog a lot. i had her for 12 years. then she told the border guards that she refused a breathalyzer and they refused her entry. For the next year I went to Detroit about three times but each visit were entries into her world of insanity. It was difficult to spend time with Samantha and I began to see things in a different reality but Sam, bravest of souls carried on. I had a major art exhibition in Detroit after 40 years of exile and the truest magnanimous best people I know were there. I saw Sam. So in spite of trips and love, this woman put Sam down not telling me. She called me from the vet, and I heard my dog being led away. No warning for me, no good byes, no thought that it was graciously done. So I find it so hard to resolve for myself. Your farewell is the most loving. I would done the SAME for Sammy. She loved burgers and it likely would never have meant a trip to the vet. Tears are streaming down my face. I want to feel some closure and I feel her here with me. Such love can never be diminished.

Please read my blog as I can’t even tell you more or breathe at the moment. barb

Kristen came to see me. She’s a hoot. She’s my groomer. And my buddy.
While we were waiting for the vet to come, Kristen said we were going for a walk. Then someone said, “How about a play in the water at the splash park down the street?” So off we went!
“You know I’m going to miss you, right?”
“And you too, right?”
“I need you to help me…
