THIS is my angel brudder Sammy J. Simpson and me.  He lives at the rainbow bridge. We are remembering him today cos today one year ago is when he went to the bridge. 

For those of my friends that don't know this Sammy and I were brudder and sister.  He was borned though in a litter after me. So he came from a not very good place either. 

He and I had a very special relationship. The kind that you can never replace. You just go one cos that is what us furry kids do.

Sammy came to live wif me, cos after Mom and Dad brought me home I had a terrible time adjusting to living in a real home wheres people loved me. I had all kinds of behavior issues. One day that woman where we came from called Mom and said she had three little pug puppies that the broker had rejected. Did we want one?  Mom and Dad talked about it and wondered if it would help me even more.  So on Thanksgiving Day they went to hers house. There was a little girl, and two little boys. At first they thought a girl but hers was really really small and they were kinda worried I mights hurt her playing.  One of the little boy had a bad hernia problem, and the other boy had scratches on his eyes, horrible scars on his legs from wire cutting through them, and his nose holes were closed.  They picked him and named him Sammy J. Simpson, Simpson is Dad's last name.

Sammy went to the vet the next week and got all fixed up.  We became good friends.  And I started to adjust to living in a real home where everyone loved me and him.  Oh we had our brudder/sister fights for sure, but he always watched out for me cos he grew bigger.  The one problem that Sammer had was he wouldn't listen well to our Mom outside and would run all over.  He loved exploring and running.  It was his passion. He kinda always looked grouchy but he wasn't.  I wrote alot about Sammer.

So today Isa celebrating the honor of having a brudder named Sammy.  I miss him alot.

These are balloons at a pug event in England.  Stan my boyfriends Mom made sure one of them released had Sammer and Angel Trudie's name on it.  I am sure he wasa watching.

  11. I remember Sammers too. And I remember the night soon after Sammers went to the Bridge, I had an important mission to do. The moon is a special place that has lots of beautiful waterfalls and green grass- and a Sea of Tranquility. My mission was to go to the moon and look for myself- and sure enough there was Sammers running across the Rainbow Bridge- back and forth to the moon. He was running with other furrys and then I saw him sit by the Sea of Tranquility- with all his friends,,, and I remember how happy he was. I told him how special he was to so many- and he said tell everyone back home I love them too,, but I am happy and peaceful.

  12. I miss Sammers a lot. He was a fun guy, and I loved hearing about your adventures. Momma and I cried and cried when we heard what happened. :( I bet his balloon floated all the way up to the Rainbow Bridge and he got to play with it, though!

  13. Ah Stella, what a beautiful tribute to Sammy. I lost my Angel last year too, but I'm still pugless. It took me quite a long while to deal with losing her, but her brother Merlin (cat) helped me a lot. I still miss her like crazy, but I know I will see her again someday.

    Have a great day. Hugs to you, Maggie and Gussie.


  14. I can't believe it's been a year already and then it seems like it was just yesterday!

    I know Sammers misses you as much as you miss him!

    We will never forget Sammy (or Trudie) ...

    Love Zoe, Peyton, Webster, Liberty & Whitney

  16. I know that Sammy had an incredible home with you all. I'm sorry he had to leave you so early but hope the memories of him make you smile. I had a rescued Shepherd mix girl named Sammie-I loved her so much. Until Hunter, we've always rescued our pups.
    Thanks for sharing this with us!
