The old dog has been sick lately. Jack gets a call from Emily. Sammy used up all of his strength to make his way to her front porch. He’s in bad shape. Jack needs to get over there pronto.
He doesn’t have it in him to say goodbye to his best friend in the world. He breaks down sobbing. Emily is also in tears as she recalls happier days when Sammy was just a puppy. It was a time when her dad was still alive. It was a time when a little boy named Jack was best friends with a little girl named Amanda. She never forgot those days. Neither did Sammy. That’s why, even after all these years, he still managed to find his way home.
Jack and Emily console each other with hugs. This leads to a passionate kiss that’s observed by Ashley, who happens to be peaking in through the front window. Jack digs a grave for Sammy on the beach. He asks Emily what the two of them are going to do now. Clearly, she has no idea. Tears stream down her face as she digs more of the grave while Jack heads off to get Sammy.
