Sam Dies

Thank you to everyone who has offered support (financial and otherwise) for Sam.

Sam's family informed us that Sam died peacefully and suddenly at home early this (Friday) morning. As Dr. Hughes' post from yesterday indicates, he had been doing quite well in the hospital and certainly seemed to be anxious to go home. His owners were anxious to have him at home.

The cause of his death is unknown but the acuteness of his demise would indicate a vascular event such as a pulmonary embolism.

I want to thank everyone who provided support for Sam - the doctors and technicians here at Friendship and the enitire dog loving community. It is a sad ending to the story but I think that we can be heartened by the way the community came together to help Sam and that he was, if ever so briefly, able to go home after some very severe injuries.
