My Super-Exciting-Hyper-Crazy Life!!

Woof! It's been a while....

Hi everyone! It's been months since I've jotted down some of my thoughts. So I guess HAPPY NEW YEAR is in order, eh?? :)

Let's see.... Lots has happened since November, really. My mom and dad went on vacation for a while and I got to stay with two really nice people up at Grandma and Grandpa's with Snoopy and Lucky while all of them were gone. We missed our people, but Erica and Jacob were certainly fun stand-in's!!

The biggest news, in my opinion, has been the arrival of Roxie. She's my new little sister. At first, I have to say I didn't really know what to make of her. She was really tiny and wouldn't leave me alone for more than 2 seconds. But she's been here a little over a month now and she's gotten a little bigger. I've been having a blast playing with her, and since she's still sleeping in her crate, I still get Mom and Dad all to myself in the big bed! YAY! We go on walks together, play in the backyard (and much to Mom's dismay, also in the living room), lay on the couch together and nap.... All kinds of fun stuff. I really like having her around. She still follows me around EVERYWHERE, but I think it's just cause I'm her big brother and she loves me. I'll have to keep setting a good example like I've been doing. Mom and Dad tell me I'm such a good boy... I wouldn't want to ruin that excellent reputation ;)

It's been soooooo cold outside here in Michigan. Ugh!! I don't really even like to go out too much. Luckily, it's nice and warm in our house. I'm a pretty content guy to just hang out inside and play with my toys. Low maintenance -- that's me!

Anyway, Mom just called to Roxie and told her it was time to go potty, so that's my cue to head out and show her how it's done. I hope everyone is doing really well, and is happy and content as can be! Take care and until I bark at ya next time..... Peace :)

Love and licks,



Another day in the life.... :)

Wow! It's been a long time since my last entry. Not a whole lot has been happening, but I just figured I'd update my following :)

My mom and dad were curious about what exactly I may be, so they had something called a "DNA test" done on me. It wasn't too bad at all. Just a little blood draw (but Mommy works at a Vet Hospital, so one of her co-workers took really good care of me the whole time), then my "DNA" was off to a lab somewhere so they could figure out what I am. I don't know much about it, but it sounds like Mommy and Daddy are a little skeptical on how effective that little test was. As you can tell by my picture, I'm a pretty big guy, but not solid like my little brother was. (Mommy says I'm "pretty", which I have to say I'm not fond of... but whatever! :oP) Anyway, my results came back and it said I'm part Pit, part Chow, part Rott and part BICHON. Yes, that's right. Bichon Frise. Now I'm just a spittin image, dontcha think?!?! Me thinks we got duped....

On to more fun topics: I'm going to be going on vacation soon! Actually, Mom and Dad are REALLY going on vacation, but when they go away, I'm going to stay with my Aunts Lucky and Snoopy at Grandma and Grandpa's house. It should be a really nice time, 'cause I love it at their place. Lots of chipmunks and squirrels, and sometimes I even get the girls to run around the yard with me. :) I'll be really excited to have my mommy and daddy home, but I know we'll all have a good time while the humans are off cruising the Carribean :)

Anyway, I guess that's about it from me for now. I hope everyone is having a great Fall. Around my neck of the woods, the weather is starting to cool off, but I LOVE it!! Lots of sunny days so far, and it makes for wonderful walks in the morning!

Have a great day, puppy pals! I'll bark back at ya soon......

Love and licks,

~ Sammy


Rain, Rain, Go AWAY!!

*sigh*.... I think we're going to float away soon :(

It's been raining here for a day and a half now and it doesn't look much like there's an end in sight! I miss going for walks, but whenever Mom tries to put my parka on me, I just kind of stand there and look at her like I'm completely traumatized, so it's just easier to stay dry and warm inside. But it sure is boring in here!! Mom's tried to engage me in a game of fetch, but that doesn't do much for me today. I've been doing a whole lot of napping since yesterday, so BOY-OH-BOY how excited I'll be to get back out there walking again!! Luckily Mom isn't working tomorrow or Wednesday, so just in case it stops raining, she'll be around to get me out there ASAP! :)

Not much else to report for now.... I hope it's nice and dry where ever you are, my fine puppy pals!! I'll post a little more later on! Keeping my paws crossed for sunshine soon......




What an exciting Monday!

Good morning, Puppy Pals....

At first, I was a little confused this morning when Mom didn't take me in the car to go walk with Grandma and Grandpa, but we still got a walk in around the neighborhood.... Man, is it HOT out there! Ugh.

Now, I'm just sitting here listening to drills and hammers and stuff, because Mom and Dad are getting their kitchen remodeled starting today. It doesn't really affect me too much. Sure, the noise can get a little irritating but I get all kinds of fun new toys/bones to chew on to keep me occupied while the guy is here tearing up the room! How can I complain about THAT??? :)

I'm a little bummed because Mom is going back to work today, so I'm probably going to be flying solo for a few hours everyday again. (Shhhh. Don't tell her this, but I think she's more sad to leave me behind than I am to have her go. I like to have my "quiet time" every now and then!). I'll miss having her home all day, but I know she's going to learn lots of new fun things about dogs where she's going to work.

As if all that wasn't enough, there's going to be some guy outside doing work on the house, too. When Mom lets me out, I'll have to remind him I'm here... WOOF! hehe... It's fun being a BIG dog in the yard :)

Anyway, I hope everyone had a good 4th of July weekend. I sure did! Got to see some family that I don't see too often, and had lots of fun playing around. I'm ready for it to be a little cooler outside so I can go for looooong walks again, but 'til then, I'll just camp out here in the house where the air is nice and chilled!

Bark at y'all again soon....




Just another lazy Wednesday....

Whew, is it HOT out there or what??? Mom and I just got back from a walk in the park with Grandma and Grandpa and Aunt Snoopy and Aunt Lucky. We sure have a blast up there -- sniffing and walking, walking and sniffing! The only bummer is when we have to leave. My, oh my, how Mom's car gets hot without the A/C :( But I'm okay. Today was exciting because Dad was still home when we got back. Pretty rare for me to see him during the day like that. But he was on his way to the office right when we came in, so I was sad to see him go.

I'm just about ready to take a long nap now that we're back in the coolness of the house. I heard Mom say something about vacuuming, so I'll be trying to find a nice corner to curl up in -- far, far away from that noisy machine....

Not too much to talk about today.... I'm getting really excited for next Wednesday though, because my HUMAN aunt and uncle and cousins are coming in from out-of-town and I just love to play with the kids!! We run in the sprinklers and have a good ol' time! Plus, we're having a 4th of July BBQ. I don't know about you guys.... but I just loooooooooove a good BBQ :)

Okay, nap time for me! Enjoy your days, puppy pals!

Ho-hum.... Kind of a dreary day here, but at least there's no rain. Mom and I went for an early walk this morning to avoid some of the heat. Not sure why they call them the "Dog Days" since I, for one, hate the heat... Oh well.

I'm getting really excited for the Mutt March on Sunday though! Lots of my family members and friends are going to be joining me, too! It should be so much fun.... I just hope that Mom and Dad don't worry too much about me with the all the other puppy pals that will be there. I'm a smart guy, and I really know when someone doesn't want to have anything to do with me. Of course that rarely happens 'cause I'm just so handsome and outgoing :oP

Mom's getting ready to clean the house soon which means that dreaded vacuum is coming out. ICK! Why's it gotta make so much noise, anyway?? Oh well. At least I'll have an excuse to run to the bedroom and sleep up on Mom and Dad's cushy bed... Ah, a dog's life.... How sweet it is!




Uh-oh.... I've been TAGGED :)

Hey there! This morning, Mom told me that I had a new p-mail from my new friend, Roswell. Of course I was excited -- I loooooove to get p-mail!! But without further ado, here's the deal, doggie pals!

I have been tagged by the wonderful Roswell ! It sounds like fun so I'm off to tag. Below are the rules of the game:

(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 & 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!

1. My favorite thing EVER is a nice long walk. Mom always goes along, but sometimes we get to go with Dad, too! And other days, we meet up with Grandma and Grandpa and Snoopy and Lucky! That's just the best!!
2. My rescue was featured on Animal Cops: Detroit on Animal Planet. Yes, that's right. I'm a celebrity! Eat your heart out, Lassie!! :)
3. I love to play football and frisbee in the backyard with Dad!
4. I can't wait to walk in the Michigan Humane Society Mutt March on June 3 in Grosse Pointe!
5. I've never met a treat I didn't like ;oP
6. My little brother, Otis, was my very bestest pal and I miss him a lot! I still love to play with the Frisbee he got me for my birthday two years ago :)
7. I really like it when Mom takes me to Pet Supplies Plus and buys fun new toys and treats for me! It's so cool that they always give me cookies when she pays for things, too!

The pups I have chosen to tag are:
1. Snoopy
2. Eddie
3. Austin
4. Orson
5. Maggie
6. Otis
7. Bruiser
