sam was the greatest dog i've ever come across. i know there are far more tragic things in life than a blessed person losing a much-loved pet, but sambo, you will be missed.
"Ever since the dawn of time... when a few wild dogs took it upon themselves to watch over man, to bark when he's in danger, to run and play with him when he's happy, to nuzzle him when he's lonely. That's why they call us man's best friend." -homeward bound
