New Digs For Good!

Yes, we've had to move permanently groowlll, but will leave this blog up for our own reference! So glad Mom could figure out something! (Note from Mom: Sammie does not know that Mama's going to NY for a week beginning Monday, so there's even less chance of filling out the new bloggie -but Dad's on vacay all next week, so Sammie's got company! Yay!) Excuse me? What did Mom sneak in there? I love you all and practically repeated this post in my comments on the new page. If I can get Mom to post one more thing today, that would be cool - we'll see! I love you all and again, my new digs are at
Hugz and Licks,
Sammie xo

Something has Happened!

Something has happened to this site and I will be barking again soon here! Woof and Hugsz xoxoxo Sammie

A Mini-Vacay!

Mom and Dad loaded me in the car with the grandpeeps late on Tuesday in a driving rain. After a couple of hours, the rain turned into white things coming down. Then, about three long hours later, I got to sleep with Mom and Dad on their bed!!! In the morning, the sun shone brightly and I got to go out. Guess what? It was coooollddd and there was fluffy powdery clouds covering the ground! Did I ever have a great time in this yummy thing called snow. I got to gallop in it, search for squirrels and hunt for gophers. I got to play with the grandpeeps, Mom and Dad, who attached weird webbed things on their feet. And, there were other doggies. Sometimes pine branches dumped their loads on my head - Woof! I had a pawsome, pawsome time and did not want to go back in that car and go home!

Happy Weekend and xo Samantha with love and hugsz.

Honest Blog!

Thanks to Abbey and Bosley of for awarding me this really nice "Honest Weblog" prize! Here are the rules to follow:

"When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to said person so everyone knows he or she is real. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have 7 friends. Show the 7 random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Weblog”. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten honest things about yourself. Then, pass it on!

Ten honest things about me:

1. I'm a rescue girl doggie.
2. I had a really bad case of kidney disease when I met my forever family.
3. If my peeps leave a bathroom wastebasket unguarded when they are gone, I'll take everything out, if there's something in there, and chew it up. (they rarely forget anymore, tho)
4. I get peas and carrots with my kibble - yum!
5. I heard my mom refer to this one really bad habit of mine as "copraphagia."
6. I bark a lot - loudly and in an obnoxiously ear-piercing yelp I've been practicing - at strangers - at the park, at my home, from the car. It's a very effective noise that I've worked on for a long time now. It keeps the weirdos away from my peeps.
7. I really try hard at obedience, but in all HONESTY, it's the treats I'm after.
8. I'm only allowed on one couch in the house, but in the mornings, I will jump on my peeps' bed to say good morning.
9. I eat the foul, furry thing's food whenever I can possibly get it.
10. I don't have a dog door, so I like to play a little game. When I want some attention, I ask to go out. When I spy mom or dad (through the glass doors), sit down comfortably to read or work, I immediately squeek to come in again. I never ask to come in unless they are occupied with something unimportant.
Okay! Time to pass this on to some of my friends!

Happy Wednesday!

Sunday Park Discoveries - Mud Puddle Sam - Again!

Has it EVER been a busy day! First, Mom and Dad actually took me to a fun match again! Exhausting! For being such a good girl, I was rewarded with visits to two of my fave parks this afternoon! At Marinwood, I got to chase my kong over the fence, which I really love to do, although I'd never do it on command for obedience heehee! Then guess what? I found another mud puddle. A huge one - all before my peeps could get me out of it! Then, because there's a creek by the path, I guess they decided I could bathe off all the mud in the stream when we crossed it! I just lay down in the cool mud and hung out. I tried to get a couple of other dogs that came by to join me, but their folks tsked tsked the idea. Bummer.

Finally, I chased the kong some more near the squirrel hide-out on the way back to the car. Little did I know, as we drove away, that my peeps were about to take me to McInnis to hang out with my pals there! What a happy day for me! There's Olivia and Wesley and me getting treats from my dad - yum! Hope you all had a good weekend. We left just as the sky dropped a bunch of big drops. So glad we're finally getting some rain - I adore wet anything.

Hugs and Slobbery Kisses,

We have another member of the family. I haven't exposed her identity because I'm not real nice to her. Then again, she's not real nice to me. I try and try to play with her, but she is not a dog. When I first found my forever family, I thought she was a dog who dug playing. But she is not a dog and she really doesn't understand my ideals in the art of play. But lately, I've been encouraged! She has started to get the idea that I don't want to hurt her; that I just want to play. So sometimes now, she checks me out when she comes in at the end of the day and I just let her hang out without bugging her. Only tonight, she taunted me. See the evidence, above. Her name is Ozzie. You'll probably be seeing more of her.
Love and Slobbers,

P.S. She exhausts me.

Happy Humpday!

A quickie post to say good morning. My great pal, Honey has started a new blog and I hope you check in to say hi to my cool friend! And a couple of pictures from summer past - even though we really need rain so badly, I still dream of beaches and hillsides!
Slobzeremous licks and drool,

Cow Palace...

Well, I can't believe this, but I had a really good time at the Cow Palace fun match! Unfortunately, my dad couldn't take too many pictures because I kept trying to run to him at compromising times. Then he went MIA. That was the only problem! Otherwise, I did my novice routine just great! Then I did my sits and downs and only me and another doggie did it nice and cleanly for the whole time. Mom is so proud of me and I got a LOT of treats and goodies after! I'm stuffed and need a walk now, so Mom and Daddy are going to take me for a hike. They aren't watching the super bowl (or most of it) this year. Good luck to the team you are rooting for! Have a great Sunday!

Hugs and Licks,


P.S. I am the 2nd in from the right - staring at my dad. The 1st dog on the left is Terra's housemate, Shanti! She did perfect too!
