My niece and nephew in GA Cameron and Carson lost their 14 year old puppy today, Seamus.

We had many great beach vacations with her as she was always running circles around us when we walked the beach to make sure we were safe. She was a great dog and I will miss her. I saw her a year ago and she was struggling big time, but she still managed to bring me a toy to mess with her.

Im sure Seamus left a part of herself to you and your family. Her happy memories will forever be with you. Its always painful when a family friend bades us goodbye. Seamus is in dog heaven now...

Thanks guys!!

Even sadder today, as my mom talked to my sister and she told her the kids and her husband reacted, crying on the phone to her. :(

Cameron and Carson each have one of her dog tags around their neck. They got off the bus after school and no dad or Seamus to greet them and they walked home and no Seamus, Cameron ran to her room and cried, Carson opened the fridge and cried. :(

So sorry for your loss ... I know how sometimes a pet is more then a family member but a companion and your buddy as well.
