1986 - 1997

Sam was our first Golden Retriever and everyone who met him loved him dearly. He loved our children and was very gentle with them. Eating, swimming and running in the park were his favorite pastimes. He loved our camping trips to the Murray River and always tried to swim after me when I went water skiing. The day he was diagnosed with cancer was one of the saddest days of our lives and he spent his last days with us at our shack on the Murray River.

We still cry when we remember losing him but have many happy, fond memories of the ten years we spent together. The night he died we went outside with our children and chose bright star and said that was Sam shining down and looking out for us. We now have another Goldie named Kane to love but the memory of Sam lives on in our hearts.
