Sam continues to settle into his new life in the "group home." This evening he was in the crowd to meet me when I came home. It's always a good sign to see these pups up and about and part of the crowd. The only thing I've not seen from Sam is a tail-wag...I hope I see that soon...
I did hear from Doris's daughter, Pat. She was supposed to be there on Saturday when I picked up Sam, but she just felt that she couldn't, so her husband met me instead. Pat did e-mail me on Monday and asked about Sam. I responded and sent her a picture. Below is a response that I received from her today which again confirms how much Doris treasures her boy Sam.
Hi KimIsn't that a nice e-mail? It all continues to pull at my heartstrings.
Thank you for the lovely e-mail with Sam's picture, and for being so understanding about Saturday. I just didn't think I could handle seeing him go. I printed your e-mail and brought it over to my Mother to read and see Sam's picture. I can't tell you how much your care of Sam means to my Mom, she loves Sam so very much and tried so hard to care for him. Mom is going through so many major adjustments with losing her home and moving into an Assisted Living Facility, and her knowing that Sam is happy means more than you can imagine.
I appreciate your kindness and compassion for our situation, please give Sam a big kiss and hug from his Sister.
Thank you again for everything, please let me know if you need anything further.
Please stay in touch.
Pat, Sam's Sister
By the way, someone asked about how we're dealing with having 2 Sam's in our household. It's really not a challenge at all because neither one of the Sam's listen, and at least "old Sam" who is hard of hearing has an excuse!
I hope you all are having a good week!
