Following a mercifully swift illness, Sammy sadly passed away on 23rd February. He was a good and loyal companion to me for many years and in his memory I am posting a few of my favourite images of him. Always a happy dog with a big heart they are also for those whose lives he touched, however briefly, during that time.
He will be sorely missed, not least by his long-time companion and friend Alice who survives him. He will not be forgotten.
(The Retriever with Sammy and me on the beach is not Alice but her predecessor Rascal)
