Hello! It’s Samantha…the Kitty!
Today, I feel super duper happy and warm and fuzzy all over. Why?? Well…because my big sis Puppydoc is letting me write the blog post! Me! While my blogging ability is nowhere near that of my fellow furball professionals (e.g. Sammy and Noodle), I will sure try my best!
Today I would like to take the opportunity to answer a very important question:
“Is it really true that Samantha and PuppyDoc are identical twins?”
While the unfortunate answer is a surprising NO– we are not of the same maternal oocyte… we DO indeed have many things in common…which leads me to…
7 Reasons Samantha and PuppyDoc are Like Twins:
1- Firstly, we are both a tad bit silly…hehe.
2- Secondly, we are both super cuddly…
3- …and we both like smooches and hugs.
4- We both speak our hearts in the way of poetry (don’t believe me? CLICK HERE!)
5- We both kind of like to think of ourselves as being of the macho canine breed. Woof!
6- We are both really sentimental.
7- Finally, while Puppydoc treats diseases, I have been told that my presence is VERY therapeutic. 😀
So see?? We ARE practically identical!
Now, for a big thank you.
Thank you, Mysterious Mind of Mine for thinking of us!!
Please go visit the blog. It is lovely!
And now, I would like (with Puppydoc’s okay)
to nominate a few furry bloggers I admire:
Cupcake of Cupcake Speaks
Lexi of Lexi the Schnauzer
Noodle of Adventures of Noodle
Sammy of OneSpoiledCat
The Fine Print for the Nominees:
1-Thank the person who nominated you and link their blog in the post.
2-Copy the rules and add the blog award badge as an image
3-Share 7 facts about yourself to your fellow bloggers.
4-Then nominate 15 people (I of course didn’t do this much).
Samantha & Puppydoc
I’ve been wanting to write this to you for a while. I go to work, and though I’ve never met you, I think about you. I talk to a patient, and while I’m standing there, there you are again, tugging at my heart. Maybe it’s because I know of your mom, and I know of her heartbreak. Maybe it’s because I know you will never be able to do what you were meant to do.
This is what I know about you. You were a medical student. You went to school in North Carolina. You cared for people. And you wanted to care for them at the greatest capacity possible. You wanted to help people during their times of sickness, strengthen them in their weakness. But your life was robbed from beneath you. So this will never happen. And the world has lost another great physician.
I hear you were a loving person, one who illuminated the day of all whom you came across. Of course you did. You were your mother’s shining star. But what no one knew, and what you didn’t reveal until your departure, was that you were also suffering. Deeply. But you were good at hiding it with your smile. And because it was a genuine smile, we were beguiled. Especially those closest to you.
When I think of you, my heart aches. Maybe it’s because I feel that I understand you better than I have a right to. Maybe it is because I once smiled a similar smile. I weep because of what you did, and because I think I understand why.
When I think of you, my soul is anguished. You were going to be a remarkable physician. You would have touched others with your empathy, changed lives with your care. They would have remembered you, not simply because you were the one who eased their suffering and comforted their souls, but because your spirit would have brightened their lives. No one had the right to take that away from you.
I’m sorry I never got to know you.
But even now, you will not be forgotten.
