I found Sammi wandering the streets of OKC in the sweltering hot summer of 2007 when she was about 5 months old. I never intended to keep her; the last thing I needed was a pet on top of parenting a young child, working full-time, and starting graduate school. But my son was turning 5 that summer and I decided it was time for us to have a dog. Eventually I graduated and we moved to Colorado. With the pandemic we were able to work from home and spend her last year with her so, in a way, it was a blessing. She passed with the three people she loved the most by her side, licking peanut butter and being told she was a good girl. Sammi loved lying in the sun and walking with us to check the mail. She was leery of strangers the rest of her life but completely devoted to her family. She was a giant bed hog and snored like a grown man. She was the best dog and friend I have ever known and I will miss her for the rest of my life. I still can’t bring myself to walk to the mailbox alone.
