Interests
Love doggies. I love kitties to, but more partial to doggies. I have many other interests but my strong interest is doggies. I used to rescue dogs. I was a member of the Heart Bandits American Eskimo Rescue. I didn't only save Eskie's and find them new homes, but I saved many breeds of dogs and saved kitties/cats too. Bringing abandoned and abused doggies and kitties/cats to their new loving homes gave great joy.

I thought this is a touching video and wanted to share it with all on here. Some may have already viewed it. But it is so cute and so true.

I lost my Samantha (American Eskimo) on May 7, 2013. I always told Samantha I was going to get her a little sister. Well, I waited to long. Samantha had fungal lung cancer. When I learned of her diagnosis I was in utter shock and angry my Smantha acquired this horrific disease. I then set out to find her a sister. I thought finding her a sister would raise her spirits with what little time she had left. I then found a new born Eskie from a breeder. I could not get Samantha's new little sister until she was 10-weeks old. So Samantha and I had to wait. I kept telling Samantha to please hang on. Our Vet said Samantha had about 2-3 months before the cancer will take her. I being a nurse knew there really could not be a time placed on when Samantha would pass. Less than a month after her diagnosis (April 11, 2013) she passed on (May 7, 2013). While she was alive I kept holding out hope Samantha would be here long enough to meet her new little sister. I talked to her a lot about her new sister.
On June 1, 2013, I acquired Daphne (American Eskimo) who is Samantha's little sister. At first I didn't think I was ready and then sometimes I thought I was ready to have Daphne with me. Let me say that I don't regret it for a minute. Daphne has brought so much joy into my life. Everyday when I awaken I love to see her cute little face. She will never take the place of Samantha by no means. I still have my days of tears for Samantha. I miss her so much.
When someone loses a furry child please do not hesitate to get another pet. It's not a replacement for the one you lost, but a new baby will be added joy to your life. Plus, you maybe saving a pet in need.
But anyway, here is my little Daphne at age 8-weeks. Her official name is, 'Samantha's Little Daphne' since she was a gift to Samantha from me.
We love and miss you baby girl so very very much! You will always be my, 'Shining Star' and I still wear the shirt with your picture on it that says, 'Samantha, you are my shining star'.

Here is another one of our songs named after the shirt I had made of you with your photo on it for me to wear.

Honey, you are my shining star
Don't you go away, oh baby
Wanna be right here where you are
Til my dying day, yeah baby

So many have tried, tried to find a love like yours and mine
Girl, don't you realise how you hypnotise
Make me love you more each time, yeah baby

Honey I’ll never leave you lonely
Give my love to you only
To you only, to you only

Honey, you are my shining star
Don't you go away, no baby
Wanna be right here where you are
Til my dying day, yeah baby

Feels so good when we're lying here
Next to each other lost in love, yeah baby
Baby when we touch, I love you so much
You're all I have with me now, yeah baby

Honey I’ll never leave you lonely
Give my love to you only
To you only, to you only

Honey, you are my shining star
Don't you go away girl, no baby
Wanna be right here where you are
Til my dying day, mmm

Honey, you are my shining star
Don't you go away girl, no baby
Wanna be right here where you are
Til my dying day, mmm

Samantha passed on May 7, 2013 at the age 10 due to Fungal Lung Cancer.
Breed: American Eskimo
Born: 10/01/2002
Adopted by me on May 27, 2003. Samantha endured extreme abuse. The day I got her I told her, "Baby girl, I will never let anyone hurt you ever again". From that day on Samantha got everything she wanted. She was well spoiled and she deserved it. She was timid/scared when I adopted her. It took a few months for her to over come her fears from the abuse and neglect and from then on she was a happy go lucky little gal.
Samantha was always at my side no matter what. Every where I went she was with me and I loved it and she did to. If I packed my suitcase she knew she was going with me. If I traveled she was with me each and every time. I never left her behind. She was my child, my family, and my rule was that she was to be treated as my child and family member. When ever there was celebrations such as holidays, family gatherings, etc. Samantha was there with me to celebrate.
I miss you so much baby girl and I love you so so much.

Love Mommy.

Good day my darling Samantha. Two months ago from today you had to leave. Mommy misses you so much sweetheart. I miss all the funny things you do. Every once and awhile I look at your video’s. I do not cry when I watch. I just sit and watch them intensly, as I do not want to miss anything. I play the videos repeatedly, look at you photos, and hold your ashes. I have met so many wonderful people here on Lighting Strikes. I feel like they are my family. Many of those have lost their furry babies too and they hurt as they miss their babies as I do you. I hope you are having fun and sharing things with all the furry babies at Rainbow Bridge such as Rufus, Gretta, LoveMyMickey Jake’s Grandpa and all. You have a good group of pals and their parents are wonderful.
As I said when you left, “It’s not goodbye Samantha, but a see you later my little girl.

Love you always,
Mommy

P.S. I wish you could write me back and all the furry kids up there could write their parents back too. I know many pet parents would love to know how their babies are doing and I would to. However, we all know you are all thinking of us and watching over us.
Your baby sister (Daphne) is doing super as you probably can see. Gosh, mommy just put makeup on for the first time since you left. Now I am crying and messing it up. Does not pay to put a face on when you are sad as the tears takes the makeup off.

Lots of hugs and kisses from Daphne and me. We love you baby girl.

Here is our song that I always sang to you. I can still sing it to you, you can hear me, and cock your head as you use to when I sang it to you. This was our version.

You are so beautiful by Joe Cocker

You are so beautiful
To mommy
You are so beautiful
To mommy
Can't you see

You're everything I hope for
You're everything I need
You are so beautiful to mommy
You are so beautiful to mommy

You are so beautiful

I lost my Samantha in May 2013. It has been a difficult struggle with her being gone. I have become upset at times and it is because of rude comments from some that do not help my grieving process or anyone's if they should receive such comments after losing a dear furry loved one. Mean comments can cause us more trauma and set backs of our grieving even more when people are cold hearted. One comment and it did not come from this website, but the comment was, "You are not the only one to lose a fur baby". I thought this rather a cold and callous statement. We all grieve in our own way in our own time. This person thinks that I should just shut off their feelings towards my Samantha and this person is the only one who should be allowed to get attention when she feels she needs it. I was not even talking about the loss of Samantha. This person read a website regarding Samantha. I did not ask for anyone's opinions. I only place memories into Samantha's diary for me to read when I felt I needed to so I can get through the day with remembering the fun things Samantha and I did together. However, some people stop in and make rude comments. It upset me so that I closed down Samantha’s web page and found a private diary online only for me to read when I wanted to be closer to Samantha. It very much upset me about this comment and comments from others. After this comment was made to me, I became angry. I am now angry all the time and I know it is part of the grieving process. I feel people have not allowed me to have my own space also, with my grieving and that does not help matters either. Sometimes I just want to be alone and I am sure some feel the same way. We just want a moment to stop, have a quiet time, and reflect on our beloved babies we lost. I just do not understand people anymore, as it seems they only think of themselves and do not think about the other’s person’s feelings. Do not think of the person who is suffering from a loss. I had a very strong love with Samantha and I know everyone here has also had a strong love for his or her beloved furry baby. I feel badly for those of us who have to endure the rude comments when we are in so much pain and struggle at times to just get through the day. We feel such emptiness. Sometimes I wish I could just turn around and see Samantha looking at me and wagging her tail. To run to her and hug and kiss her.
These rude commenter’s have lost furry one’s themselves and I would think that they would understand, but it’s the opposite. Boy, it really hurts. I just cannot turn off a switch and forget about Samantha. It is humanly impossible to turn off our feelings for something we loved so dearly. It would not be a normal human response. I am sure many have felt the same way. We just cannot turn our feelings off. I do not want to turn off my feelings as to me someone has no heart by shutting feelings out. Our babies are not just things as some seem to think. No, they are living breathing individuals that God gave to us. For us to love them and they love us. Sometimes, I think the phrase, “The more I get to know people, the more I like my dog” is a very true statement. I was a critical care nurse for many years and could never shut off my feelings for my patients. I would cry and cry and thought maybe I shouldn’t cry when some of my patients passed on and it really hit hard when I had young teenagers die such as from auto accidents. A doctor told me one time, “Sue, when a person stops crying then that is when a person stops caring” and to this day, I still believe that statement. So, when the tears need to flow I will not stop them. So in saying that I know none of us can just stop caring, crying, and feeling the love we had with our furry children. If we did not care, we would never have had them as our furry children.
Anyway, not to rattle on but, I really do hope and pray that none of you have received rude comments during your loss and if so I am so very sorry because it really does hurt. It tears at your heart. It is a constant ache. In time, the pain will pass, but for now, the road has been difficult. Please take care of yourselves and do what you feel is best for you. Your furry baby wouldn’t want it any other way.
God bless you all!

Sue
