My black lab mix Samantha died at the age of 13. I had her since I was a baby. We got her from the pound and she was by my side every day growing up. She was always looking out for me and has even saved my life a couple times. She was and still is my best friend and always will be. She was sweet and lovable to everyone and was a cherished member of the family. We had to put her to sleep because of the pain she was feeling. I'll always remember the way she looked at me those final moments before she was gone. It was like she was saying thank you and i'll always be there for you. It's been 3 years since then and I can't wait for the day that I can finally see her again at the Rainbow Bridge.
