anywhere. He was always up for it

Best Tricks:
doing the gopher, rolling the ball back to us- we would throw it to him and we would touch it with his nose and send it right back.

Arrival Story:
I (the mom) visited the city pound in 2004 to look for a dog for someone else. When I saw Sam it was love at first sight. He had the sweetest little ears and was showing his teeth when the other dogs picked on him. That was it - I had to get him out of there. Since the pound had a website, I was able to go home and print off a picture of him for the fridge. That was the first step in convincing my husband to get a dog. Within a couple days, he gave in went up and picked up Sam. He's been our little guy ever since. Here are the words we can think of that he understood: Sit, Lie down, Roll over, Do the gopher, Paw, Want, Out, Walk, Poo, Pee, Bag, Moo moos, Up on the deck, Treat, Supper, Eat your supper, Drink, Leash, Wheres the mouse?, Bernard, Bernards coming, Car, Truck, Put your head down, Bed, Ball, Bath, Up, Come up, Rub your belly, Get out of here, Collar, What did you do, Come, in the house, basement

Bio:
Sammy lived from January 19th 2003 to November 10, 2007. He got up one morning (after sleeping his last night on the bed with us) and I put him out on the lawn as usual, on his leash. A few minutes later, I looked out and saw a lady and her dog looking in this way from the street. I went out and she said Sam had barked at them and fell over. That was it. Sam left us there on our lawn.
