Sam-Wise


Much to Mike's chagrin, I'm convinced that my dog is a pacifist.

Our neighbors across the street recently adopted two pomeranians. Every time they are outside the same time as Sam & I, the tiny dogs obnoxiously taunt him.

"Come on over, big boy," they yelp. "We can take you."

Sam starts toward them in a gentle, friendly way. Then he sits down on his hind legs, patiently, his ears relaxed, his tongue lopsidedly, happily hanging out of his mouth.

"You are our enemy," Jazzy and Yogi howl at him. "Come fight us."

Sam looks at me, and rolls his eyes. "Can you believe them?" He asks with a look as he meanders inside.

People could learn a lot from my dog.

Amber, your Sam is as wise as he is handsome! What a great dog! It just goes to show that you can learn a lot from your pets.

I'm a little late, but Sam has grown! I remember Meg and I taking him (as a puppy) on a walk. I knew he was going to get big with those paws of his!He's absolutely adorable, though.

Funny how the big dogs, cats, people, whatever can be the sweetest ones.=)
