What a wonderful mother you were to be there with him through his suffering. I am so very sorry for your loss. Thank you so much for sharing his last day. I just hope I can be as present for Willie when his time comes, and in the meantim enjoy every moment of his neediness and love.
Oh, the time always, always comes too soon. I am so sorry for your loss, but I do believe you will, as you say, see him again one day. Thank you for sharing his last day with us, even though it made me cry for him, and in remembrance of days like that I've been through with my beloved ones.
RIP, Samson. And hugs to you.

Curlilocks...I have tears in my eyes right now. I'm so sorry for your loss. I think pets know when they will be especially missed. Samson wouldn't let go because he knew you'd be sad. You did what he couldn't do...let him go.
RIP Samson...my doggie Rambler has lymphona and mast cell tumors...chemo is keeper her going, but who knows for how long. I hope she gets to meet Samson when she goes.
((hugs)) to you and your family Curlilocks. As hard as it is now, you'll see that you did all you could do for your beloved friend and stayed with him to the end.
My cat died right after I brought my son home from spending 5 weeks in NICU. We knew Max was failing quickly but I feel so guilty sometimes that we didn't do more for him or that I couldn't spend more time with him in his last hours. My DH came home from work to take him to the vet just like you did with Sampson, but he thinks he died in the car on the way there.
When you spend 10-15 years with a pet, it's hard to see them suffer and leave your life. But you have wonderful, loving memories of Sampson to carry you on...
I am bawling my eyes out. I almost lost my Annabelle over Thanksgiving and I just couldn't bear the thought of it. I know how much that you loved Sampson, he was like one of your children. I hope that you can find something to fill the void. I have to end here, because I can't see to type.

We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names and each is a different color. But they all have to learn how to live in the same box. ~Anonymous
