   Leave a bone for Sam-i-am

Sam, the Samsters, Shammy, Shameful Shams (used sparingly for instances when he has counter-surfed and succeeded at snatching food)

Quick Bio:

his walks (every walk an adventure!), food, being with his people, his snowman toy, hunting and chasing

when mother is not home, the leash that restrains him from catching that squirrel

Favorite Toy:
snowman head

Favorite Food:
Carrots, macaroni and cheese, King Cake, bread, whatever you're eating

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere there are squirrels and other things to chase

Arrival Story:
We had just lost our beloved doberman, Nuby, and we've always had a love of Egyptology. Became fascinated with the Ibizan hound, ancient breed of Egyptian descent, so researched the breed in depth and decided that we'd rather have an adult than a puppy at this time of our life. Found a breeder with an adult ibizan who thought that Sam could blossom to his full "beezer" potential if he were an "only child". Through much communication between us and breeder, it was decided Sam would be perfect for us. We've had Sam since Sept of 2003.

Sam is a retired conformation show dog from Arizona. He tried lure coursing but would rather hunt the real bunny instead of the fakie on the string.

Hello everyone! Sorry for the long span of time between entries. I am hard at work patrolling the yard for squirrels and cats and other things that move. When not zooming around the yard, I'm sleeping on the bed or following my mother around the house. Check out my Halloween photo below - I was Anubis (surprise!). Take care ya'll!

Okay I've been tagged by Dory and Nico!

The Rules
(Hint: Copy and paste the rules so you don't have to type them again):

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their diary the rules and their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

My Seven Random Facts:

1. I love to drink iced coffee and eat carrots.

2. I follow my mom around the house - wherever she is, I am!!!

3. I love to go on camping/hiking vacation trips with my people.

4. I love when my mom brushes and scales my teeth, and clips my nails. I fall asleep in her lap. Any chance for mom to dote on me, I'll take it!

5. My mom calls me "Shampy-stars!" in a high-pitched voice sometimes! I don't know what that's about, but it's more mommy-attention so I'll take that too!

6. Sometimes I have big bursts of energy where I'll run around the house like crazy throwing my "snowman head" toy in the air and then pouncing on it like a cat. Then as soon as I turn it on, I am out like a light just as fast!

7. I love Mardi Gras time when the house is full of guests and there's lots of people-food handouts and food on the floor! Every once in awhile someone might give me just a little bit of beer!

I'm tagging:

Oliver and Tallulah
Newton and Annabelle


I have a birthday soon!
