On Monday June 4 2012, our beautiful Sammi slipped quietly and gracefully into the void. During Saturday night, something catastrophic happened to her reconstructed leg and by Sunday morning she couldn’t weight-bear on either back leg. She (and we) endured Sunday and Monday, Sammi in a codeine-induced happy state, us in an advanced state of distress. Our lovely vet Prue and vet nurse Necia came to our house on Monday night, and as we all cried, Sammi had the Green Dream and died instantly and happily, having scoffed the best part of a whole packet of potato crisps as a distraction.

We are so sad, and all her fans are too. I know that she had quite a profile here on RB, so this is a way of Sammi saying goodbye – and thanks for looking at all her pictures!

    So sorry to hear of your loss Denzil. It’s a small comfort that she went peacefully at home with those she love around her.

  • Thanks Lee, you’re right, she was so much more comfortable being at home …
