Arrival Story:
My daddy had always wanted a pug and mommy always loved dogs, but when we saw her after pulling an ad out of the paper and realized she wasn't full pug , it didn't matter because it was love at first sight.

**We know she is some kind of pug mix (possibly chihuahua,rat terrier or jack russell terrier) every week i think something else, but we truly aren't sure **She just found her barking voice at 9 weeks, prior to that it was all whimpering. **She finally started sleeping in her crate at night without crying all night,but then mom and dad got weak and since no more potty accidents, sammie can sleep in their bed again.

Forums Motto:
I love to kiss!!

Sammie's Spoiled Stories

Alot has happened since last written a diary entry.. sammie has a new family member, his name is Jacob and he is a baby boy of mommy and daddy's which will one day become Sammie's best buddy. Sammie gets a little depressed over the new addition since she can no longer sleep in mommy/daddy's bed since the baby needs to feed frequently, but mommy/daddy do try to show Sammie extra love and attention to make up for having to share us with him. She's about 12 pounds now and still short and light feeling considering the baby weighs 18 pounds now. Sammie is a happy dog , never aggressive and always kissing everything.. Jacob is already starting to reach out and touch sammie and smiles at him so i have a feeling they will be great together.

I am a big girl now! i have learned to start trying to test my mom and dad's limits. here is a typical day for sammie....

8am pee and poo on potty pad or outside depending on weather. *i am in the process of transitioning to outside pottying now that the weather has improved.

8-820 chew on any toys found on mommy/daddy's beds while they are showering, when the water shuts off i run into the bathroom and help them to dry off by licking their legs to death. pee again

820 eat breakfast in the kitchen then pee and poo again

830 chew on more toys and play soccer with my soft ball

900 if mommy worked the night before then i nap a little with her til she falls asleep and then begin my daily routine of running around her bedroom and play with toys til she wakes
if mommy didn't work then i may spend a lot of time outside on my leash while mommy does gardening or i may get to go on a trip to st. louis to her mom's house and see mommy's 2 yr old nephew that likes to chase me.

from 9am-5pm it is usually just constant play with a couple naps in between. plus i make sure when anyone walks down the hall to grab hold of their pants legs for a ride and if that front or back doors open, i make sure to dart out before anyone can stop me and find the closest neighbor and run to them for a quick lick on the leg or face depending on size and age of neighbor. oh yeah, lots of pees and poos again

5pm daddy home from work and i have to do my crazy run around the house in circles where no one can catch me because i am soo excited.

520 play with daddy then eat dinner and then pee and poo

6pm play and then start to get tired and want to sit on everyone's laps til it is bedtime.

11pm bedtime, i climb up my stairs to mommy/daddy's bed and lay down either at the bottom of the bed under their blankets or up on their pillows between their heads and sleep till morning to play all over again. oh and before this she may poo again and pee

Sammie is a playful puppy and doesn't sleep much except when mommy works, she usually likes to play hard all day and then sleep hard all night. she is a very good girl and sleeps all night with us and never gets out of bed til we do. Thank God she can do most of her playing independantly or i think i would be too tired to work!


Losing Teeth!

Sammie has been losing teeth for about a month now, poor thing.. she is teething more than ever and constantly chewing on her toys or on my pants legs. Thank God she only goes for our fingers if we stick them ourselves in her mouth. At 4 am one day i heard her licking while in bed and i woke up and thought she had found something she shouldn't have been chewing on, so i put my hand under her mouth and said "Give it to me" and dropped out of her mouth came a little canine tooth!!! I couldn't believe my eyes, poor Sammie!! Now when she licks her little tongue comes out the side with the big tooth missing. Otherwise Sammie has continued to be the joy of our lives. She is such a good girl! she doesn't chew on anything she shouldn't ( except paper now and then) but she thinks of that almost as a treat when she finds it! She is still scared of stairs (except for her bed stairs)and barks at them, licks everyone to death (thank God she has good breath!) , maybe once a week finds a nice treat in her own stinky gifts yuck!!!, and is constantly exploring.. Ever since we got her she has a played this game of fetch with herself and she plays this now before she goes to bed each night or before she takes a nap.. She takes her toys up to our bed and then throws them off the bed, barks at it, and then runs down her stairs off the bed and gets her toy and brings it back up to the bed to play all over again. She has only fallen off the side of the bed twice with this game! i think she didn't realize her throwing strength and went off the side of the bed with the toy! She didn't hurt herself though, just stunned! ( our bed is very tall and we built her stairs to the bed, it takes about 7 or so steps up for her to get to the bed)
