You arrived at CBR in the winter cold of December, a beautiful, 6-month-old named Samson. We found wonderful foster homes for you with Nick, Cheryl, and Sherlock, then eventually with Jann, Amber, Napo, Keep’er, QT, 22, and Kerby. We did not understand then, nor do we understand now, the depths of your wounded soul and your troubled mind. How could one so young be anything but happy, silly, mischievous, wonderful? You wanted so badly to be a good dog and most of the time, that is what you were—a good dog; no, a great dog.
Someone, somewhere in your short life failed miserably as a human being and irreparably damaged that which wasn’t theirs to hurt. They took away your innocence and left in its place a tormented being in search of a cure for your demons. You wanted the answers to the unasked questions lurking in your soul. Those of us who wanted to help you, could not find those answers either, although everything possible was done to seek out the solution.
of intensive training and love, a wonderful home was found for you
with Carolyn and Dave, where we all hoped you would be able to at
last find peace and happiness. Unfortunately, your past was too
much for you to bear and in many ways, you were telling us that the
time had come for us to let you go. Please know that the decision
that was made for you has been devastating for us all. Many, many
tears have been shed and many more will continue flowing each time
we think of you and those like you whom we cannot help. Sometimes
it feels like we have failed you, but deep down we know that there
was nothing more we could have done for you. You were sent on your
way with much love from all of us—in our minds, you were wrapped in
our arms and held tightly in our hearts.
