Breaking News from DaphneyLand...

TEAR ALERT: <3 It is my duty to let everyone know: that our beloved Sampson, star of Save our Shelter has transitioned to the Rainbow Bridge. This boy came in via a network from Golden Empire Basset Rescue. Sampson lost his forever home due to a new wife. Sad, True. He was with us for awhile until the senior adopters - Alexis & Chase swooped in and gathered him up. Loving him despite his aging years, they are the true angels in this story. You saw them on Save our Shelter but the story is so much bigger than that. Sampson - a senior WAS ADOPTED!!! Too soon the diagnosis of cancer came in, yet this home did not waiver. Doing all they could to give him a quality of life - they loved him, celebrated him and today he transitioned to the rainbow bridge. A celebration of life, love and forever. Sampson forever to be known as: Sampson Justman Sampson of Daphneyland. Always in our hearts. @daphneyland #Daphneylandalumni #saveourshelter #bassethounds ... See MoreSee Less

Arthur ThrockmortonGod speed Sampson. My apologies, but I cannot let this slide by. Losing his forever home because of a new wife says volumes about the husband who should never be allowed to adopt a Basset Hound the rest of his life. No respect.4 hours ago   ·  1
