Two years ago on Mother’s Day, our third puppy showed up at the door. Yes, he came to the door and scratched and cried and we fell in love. His name was Samwise. Samwise was the most amazing puppy, and even though he wasn’t with us for long, he touched us all so deeply. Samwise went to the happy hunting ground in November and we miss him so very much. And that is why Mother’s Day has a special meaning.

Samwise is the dark, fluffy one.
He and Buckley were inseparable.
