[Spoiler Alert] My Star Wars VII review: 99.9% less Ewoks than the original trilogy. 99.9% less Pod Racing than the prequel trilogy. 1/10.

It's no secret that Hoosiers love craft beer. And your local craft brewers love nothing more than to see their friends and neighbors enjoying their beer. Unfortunately, there are archaic regulations that keep Indiana's small brewers from producing enough beer to supply the whole state.

Samson
02/02/2002 – 11/03/2014

Samson came into my life a little over eight years ago when I was finally accepted on to my beloved K-9 team and he was given to me as a partner. He already had two years of working under his belt. He broke me in and trained me and together we worked six more. He was one of the most laid-back, happy dogs I have ever had the pleasure of being around. The “Labradane with the magic nub” worked diligently to assure all those inside the prison and anywhere else he worked were safe by trying to keep narcotics out and find any that made its way inside. He always greeted anyone he met with a wagging tail and a pleasant demeanor. Accepting any loving or treats which those he met were willing to give up.
He retired a little over three years ago and despite mounting health problems he kept that pleasant demeanor and helpful ways at home. Where he was sure to protect and help his family by barking loudly at the slightest noise to keep unseen assassins away, being around to give anyone who wanted all the loving they could handle, and by making washing the dishes as easy as possible by making sure every little particle of food was thoroughly licked off before the dishes were washed. He made sure everyone was who came into his house was always greeted with that same wagging tail and given ample opportunities to share in all the love he had to give.
His health problems continued to mount and today I had to make the hard decision to let him pass on from this world. I just couldn’t bear to see him suffer anymore. What really hurts is that his eyes were so alive and well, but the rest of him was not. That makes me feel so guilty. The logical side of my brain understands that it was the best thing for him, but my heart was just in pieces. I am sorry Samson. I hope you find peace and happiness in whatever world you find yourself in next. I will forever remember all the wonderful years and be grateful for every minute of them, to have had the opportunity to love such a wonderful companion and get loved back. There will always be a huge void in my home and in my heart.
So goodbye Samson. 
My trusted partner.
My faithful companion.
My dear friend.
You will always be remembered. 

We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare, and love we can spare. And in return dogs give us their all. It is the best deal mankind has ever made.

I am dealing with the same thing right now with my best buddy who has CHF. I know I am spending my final days with him right now and I will miss him dearly when I have to make the same hard decision you made today.

Thanks for sharing your story with Samson with us! He had a long great life and now you have all the great memories to look back on.
