Now the next challenge...

... you remember Sam... well, at the beginning of October - he was diagnosed with bone cancer. It's a bone eating/generating cancer that is in his left shoulder.

He has been my initiation into dog ownership (partnership) and the lessons he's taught have been many. I am just hoping to have enough presence of mind to 'know' when the time is right to allow him to rest.

His love is selfless and constant... and his joy of simple pleasures an inspiration. His short tenure of a little over 9 years, so far has left me many memories and pleasures. Why are we blessed with the keepers so early on, for they surely spoil us for any that hope to follow?
