   Leave a bone for Samantha

Sam, Sammy, Whammy, Sammers, Slammer, Freckles

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

Sam loves nothing as much as she loves a good, firm chest and neck rub along with a few behind scratches added in for good measure.

Sam hates when Blair wakes her up. She also hates carrots.

Favorite Toy:
A squeaky stuffed yellow pig named Baby and a stuffed white rabbit ("Seth") that she stole from my bedroom.

Favorite Food:
Sam loves a good banana or apple. Peanut butter and cheese rank highly, too.

Favorite Walk:
Sam loves to walk to the neighborhood park. She enjoys the children, the smells, and the squirrels.

Best Tricks:
She grins like a nutter on command. It's hilarious and even won her a "Stupidest Pet Trick" award.

Arrival Story:
Samantha was born to Brownie, our neighbor's liver and white Springer when I was 13. Since I was their multi-tasking baby-sitter, dog-sitter, dog trainer, etc they gave me pick of the litter. I chose the alpha male, whom I called Sebastian. My Mother vetoed that idea - she was afraid that he would harass Blair - and so I chose Samantha. Thank goodness, too, because she is an amazing dog!

Samantha passed away unexpectedly today. I'm so upset. I moved home to help my mother after my father died in July, and my Sam was the only bright spot in everyday. My morning walks will never again be the same. Look for a new dog page soon; we'll be rescuing puppy to take over where Sam left off, though no dog will ever take her place. October 4, 1993 - November 16, 2004 *****June '05: The dog-hating neighbor who lives behind us has told some neighbors that he poisoned Samantha with anti-freeze. It is too late to perform a necropsy, and he won't admit it to me or to the police officer who was kind enough to take our complaint seriously. We will be erecting a tall privacy fence before moving back into our home (currently out of it due to hurricane damage). I can only hope the neighbor is now scared enough not to attempt the *murder* of any other neighborhood pets or children. Oh, yes, he hates children, too.
