Our family dog, Samantha had to be put down yesterday. The only animal I ever loved. Seriously, I'm not an animal person, but my dog was awesome. She was the best for night walks... since Mom would never let me go for one until I told her I was taking Sam. And she was a good listener, huggable and not a yippy-step-on-me dog. She had a lot of anxiety whenever we all left the house, always worrying about us. Her and the fat-cat combo gave us all a lot of laughs. She was a good dog. Often, when it rains, it pours.
