Happy birthday, Sam-dog!

Yesterday (July 12) Sam celebrated lucky #13. We went for a walk (hey, 500 meters is a long way for some of us :D ), had a delightful cake (“we” didn’t have this–only Sam. I like Jelly beans okay, and the Petco treat bar cookies are actually palatable, but I draw the line at Alpo and Fancy Feast.), wore fancy hats (again, only the birthday boy. His dignity was lost years ago…I’m still trying to preserve some of mine), and opened presents. Pictures below! (Here’s a link to his Facebook album, too, which has baby pictures, medium pictures, and grown up ones :-) )

Sampson, Sammy, Sam-Dog, Sammy Psoriasis, Big Dog-Pig-Dog, Budgers…My stoic gentleman; my goofy dipshit. My ever-patient/ever-neurotic, philodendron with fur. Happy birthday, Sammer…you are one in a million.

Baby Sam-dog, the day I brought him home (and washed him off…being one of more than a dozen puppies in a litter, in a single pen at the humane society makes for smelly doggies :p). He’s about 8-9 weeks old.


Somewhere around 3 months


Getting older! Around 5 months



Ah, the halcyon days when both my husband (then my younger-man boyfriend :p) and my dog were just bebbies :D (I think this was after P. and I had been dating around 6 months. Sam seemed to have adopted him okay. :p)


The cake and presents (Sam loves Jelly beans. :D )




The man of the hour


Waiting patiently.


Waiting less patiently. “Yes! Cake please! Now.”

  • Awwwwww Sammer!! Great day for the tripawd commuity! We get to celebrate and honor a tripawd hero!!

    Of course, your pictorial is beyond delightful! You are a very handsome fella and you are taking your good looks with you right into “seniorhood”.

    Your cake is the envy of every pup in the land….maybe even a few humans:-)

    Now, Sampson, Sammy, Sam Dog, Big Dog-Pig Dog, Budgers, and Sammer…….okay, good nicknames for a cutie pie like you…….

    …..but Philodendron..and then PSORIASIS?? PSORIASIS? Really?? Your mom probaly added “philodendon” to the list of “foods” when she was trying to get you to eat ANYTHING…..and then guess that gave you psoriases? Maybe?

    Sammer, you are one very, very special boy and we are all so happy for you! You have INCREDIBLE pawparents and are a very, very loved boy….but you already know that!

    Tht was nice of you to share your jelly beans inspite of your momma makimg you wear a birthday hat! It just adds to your already charming self!

    Much love from all of us to yo and your entire pack,

    Sally and Happy Hannah
