March 16

Fifteen years ago today a puppy was born that would change my life. Today is Samba's birthday.
Never was there a more happy, loyal and loving dog and I will always be grateful that I was able to share my life with her.
I miss her terribly, but I'm so lucky to have been able to watch her pups grow up and become silly, sweet adult dogs. I see some of her in each of them. Norma Jean and Grace's love of swimming, Bailey's hunting and nosework, Tess's running laps across the yard, Noah's cuddling and Lola looks so much like her Mom that it brings me to tears at times.
Thank you Samba for giving me these pups to love.

It is a bittersweet day for you. At least you still have her pups to love, and in whom you see so much of sweet Samba. Lovely tribute, Sue.

I know how much you miss her... she stole a piece of your heart, just as Lola and Zeus did mine. Many hugs to you and all of her pups.
Happy Birthday Samba - hope you're celebrating with everyone on the Bridge!
