Ruthie and I buried Sam today, faithful friend for over 12 years. His body was giving out and he could barely walk. He was in a lot of pain over the past year. He was on several 4x4 rides with the.crew to tracy city and GSMTR over the years. I will miss him immensely as I never had such a loyal dog. He really grew fond of Ruthie and understood her Spanish commands and discussion. May you all have the opportunity to enjoy such a wonderful companion . Ruthie and I will miss his commanding authority of his bark and gentle touch.
