Our Beautiful Springer Spaniel
by Wendy Tate
Sam was such a vibrant happy dog who loved nothing more than a long walk especially if there was an abandoned bottle to chew on and some water to splash in. We lost Sam to Nasal Cancer and Liver failure and after reading the Rainbow Bridge I was moved to write this tribute to our beloved boy missed so much by us all.
Some may say why all the fuss
After all he was just a dog
But Sam, to us was so much more
Our loyal companion, and our friend.
Our protector until the very end.
Our lovely boy tail always wagging
tongue hanging out like he was smiling.
Always there to greet us at the door
But sadly he can greet us no more
The time had come to say goodbye
And in our house there wasn't a dry eye
For our beloved Sam it was time to go
To a peaceful place, in pain no more.
A big hole has been left where Sam used to be.
In time we'll remember happy memories.
But at the moment there is just sadness and pain
For a loyal friend we won't see again.
