Samantha. March 9, 2005--Sammy Dog lost her battle with cancer.Old Puppy. Labor Day 2005--We only had her 5 months and now she's gone. Probably a small stroke or a brain tumor. She had more and more trouble walking and was turning in circles. The wonderful people at Aztec Animal Clinic came in on their Sunday off and eased Poppie's passing. She went gently, surrounded by us. At least we gave her five comfortable, safe, well-fed months.
