Sammy Forever in our Hearts

Lea and Sammy.jpg

Sammy was Dr. Lockwood's labradoodle and passed away on May 7, 2023. He is remembered as a kind and sweet soul, who served as a therapy dog for thousands of children, adolescents and adults over the last 8 years.

 

We miss his presence in the office and love hearing stories from clients about how he made their testing experience easier. That’s what Sammy did. He made everything easier with his fluffy coat and gentle eyes. We will miss our Sam Dog.
