Every morning when I get up Sam is curling himself around my feet. I can barely make it to the bathroom because he's right under me the whole time I'm trying to walk. However, Saturday morning I woke up and didn't see his little feet standing at the bedroom door. I opened the door… Continue reading Goodbye Sam
