We've Been Grieving
We had to put Lindsay's dog, Samantha, down. She'd been a part of our family for 10 1/2 years since Lindsay was 10 years old. Lindsay named her Samantha, but we always called her Sam. My dad gave her her full name "Samantha Barksdale Rabe".
She was the perfect dog for our family - gentle and patient. Little ones often used her as a pillow and she was perfectly content with that! She had 11 puppies 5 years ago, and we kept one whom we named Sadie.
Sadie is a bit lost, looking for human attention more than ever!
Here are a few photos of Sam that I found on our blog...
I am sure I have better photos on my desktop downstairs but that thing is a dinosaur and I don't want to bother with it today.
We're going to miss her.
A big comfort to our hearts has been the addition of a kitten to our household. Sarah has longed for a pet of her own, and this adorable kitty was available. She has named him Watson, as in Sherlock Holmes side kick. Sarah is a bit of a mystery lover. The other night we watched a Miss Marple movie and she solved the mystery before anyone else! She was quite proud of herself.
I'll try to get a better photo of Watson today.
