Remembering my friend Sam today...

February 1, 1989 - July 20, 2002

Sam joined my former partner and me on April 22, 1989 -- our fifth anniversary. He was about 10 weeks old and he fit in the palm of my hand. He grew up to be our constant companion, and when AJP and I separated in 1999, Sam chose to stay with me. He lived a long and happy life of over 13 years, succumbing to prostate cancer on this date in 2002. He was my inspiration for choosing the name of my blog, and his smiling face is on the masthead.

I miss you, babydoggies.
