My husband and I decided we wanted a dog and spent one Saturday looking for just the right one. We went to the humane society and several pet stores. It was getting late and we hadn't found a dog yet so decided to look at one more pet store before going home. They had a cute little black and white dog. The girl told us it was a Japanese Chin. We had never heard of that breed before. She asked if we would like to hold him and she handed him to me. He layed his head on my shoulder and that was it, I fell in love.

Sammy Jo's Stories

Six Years Without Our Beautiful Sammy Jo

Our Sweet Sam Sam, another year has gone by since the last time we saw you. Six years ago today we took you for your last walk. Even though you had to ride in your stroller, you were happy just to be out with mom and dad and Toby. As always you had that smile that we miss so much. Six years ago today we gave you your last hugs and kisses and got our last kisses from you. Every time we go to the dog park I remember how much you loved it there, I see the place at the top of that hill where you stopped walking and sat down. I didn't realize you had stopped and Toby, Tinker and I kept walking. Tinker kept trying to tell me and finally I turned around to see why Tinker kept jumping on the back of my legs. When I turned, I looked up the hill and there you were just sitting, watching as we walked. As I went back, I realized that you could no longer walk the dog park trails. I picked you up and carried you as long as I could and made a decision that we would get you a stroller, you would not be left home. I remember putting you in the stroller the first time and thinking, he isn't going to like this. To my suprise you loved it and you looked so proud, just smiling and riding. Sammy, we miss you so very much and we'll never stop loving you. You will be in our hearts for ever and always....loves and hugs, mom, dad, Cory Jo, JoJo and Sarge


Missing You For Five Years Sammy Jo

You've been on our minds so much lately Sam Sam. As always we miss you so much and we'll never stop loving you. There isn't a day that goes by that we don't think of you and remember something that you did. Sometimes we laugh at some of the things you did, the things that made you who you were, the things that made you special. One of my favorite memories of you is the day I filled the bathtub to give you and Toby Jo a bath. Toby was the closest so I got him in the tub first. When he was finished I called you, knowing you wouldn't come because you absolutely hated baths. When you didn't come I went to get you but you were no where to be seen. After looking for a few minutes I pulled the front door away from the wall and there you were, hiding behind the door! You looked up at me with those big eyes, and that guilty look on your face, I just had to laugh, you looked so cute. got your bath anyway! And there was the day one of the cockatiels flew down from the cage and was on the floor. Our cat Callie was heading in the direction of the bird looking very interested, we watched as you got in between the bird and the cat and stayed there until we got the bird off the floor and safely back on her cage. You loved all animals and all people. There are so many more memories Sam, we think of them often. Some of them hurt and bring tears and some make us laugh. We love you so much our precious Sammy Jo....Love, mom and dad and Toby Jo, Cory Jo and JoJo.
