Troubled Times

Because of the recent heat wave, Sam hasn't been able to take a walk for a couple of weeks. Aaron and I have been worried about how he spends his time...

Because he's a dark red Golden, people often assume that he's an Irish Setter. I think he's starting to take it to heart!

Sam will send an 8x10 copy of the picture in this post to the first person who can identify the painting behind him... No cats are eligible for this contest - sorry, Sam's rule. (Click on the picture to view large size.)

    Sorry, I can´t identify that painting.

  9. Sam, you are so funny! I see that you are now smoking cigars too? Is it time for an intervention? Thanks for making us laugh :)
