the jingle of his own collar, dingos, blue bear and going out front to run in the grass!
his back end is very sensitive, he hates baths, and doesn't like the word "B-A-D"
He has two - blue bear and brown bear (not very original, I know)
Definitely Dingos. He's on a special urinary diet though.
Down the street and back!
He's funny that way, he doesn't do many tricks except bark when I say "hungry", sit, stay and come.
Sam has been through a lot in his short life. His first people abused him badly, he still walks crooked because of this. His second people didn't want him anymore because he has KCS and requires compliance with eye medication. They wanted him put to sleep. Fortunately, I worked at the animal hospital where he was brought in and our doctors thought Sam could be adoptable if the one badly infected eye were removed. It was causing him a lot of pain, symptoms of being ill, and an infection in his brainstem - it was so badly infected.
Once the eye was removed, he became like a new pup! He was shaved terribly from the surgery and didn't look so hot, but just begged for love and affection. I took him home to socialize with my labrador, Flower, who has since passed, and fell in love with everything about him. He is the joy in my life. My baby. I don't know what I would have done without him at certain times in my life. One eye or not, he is the absolute best friend ever.
I would love to see any additional photos of Bichon's with only one eye. I have searched the web repeatedly and only found two. If there are any out there, please post! Just for Sammy and I! That way he'll know he's got buds out there just like him!
