Weekend Update

Sam here, Sam giving you update on weekend. Mom and Dad are close to being fired, again.

First of all, Mom and Dad busy most of weekend. Something about cleaning Grandma's yard. Sam could have helped, but no, Sam not invited. Sam had to beg to be fed! Here is proof.

Sam did occasionally get some food.

Mom did find time to make Sam and Monty new collars. Here is picture of Sam's. You will have to wait to see Monty's. He is in jail. Something about trying to join a motorcycle gang or start riot. Sam not quite sure.

Here is also picture of Monty, just so you remember him.

Mom also spent time with her Friesian stallion, Baron. Mom say he our big brother. Sam not sure about this, not see resemblance. That is trainer, Jeremy Cluff, in the pictures.

We hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day and remembered to thank our soldiers and veterans.

Thank you, everyone!

Sam is doing much better tonight, to our relief. He is eating with his usual apetite, wants to play, and overall is feeling like his old self. He still seems plagued by the runs, but even that is looking better (I won't go into details!). We are still concerned about why he was sick, though. One minute he was prancing around being silly, and then all of the sudden he laid down and was ill. We might be over reacting, but he is our boy and we love him.

Sam definitely needs a good thorough brushing!

We want to thank everyone for their well wishes! It really helped us to read everyone's pawsitive thoughts and kind words. ...and most importantly of all,

Sam thanks you!

Poor Sam is Sick

Poor Sam has been sick all this afternoon. He hasn't been interested in food, which is pretty alarming with him. We've been taking him out quite a bit to avoid accidents, and have just tried to comfort him.

Monty has also taken an interest in Sam's welfare. He's been very gentle with Sam, and has even kept him company on occassion.

We are hoping Sam will feel better in the morning - we've had these episodes before. Sam has a very fragile digestive system, and it doesn't take much to upset him.

Some Exciting News

Can you guess which adorable pair of boys got baths today?

We have something exciting to show you. Do you remember a loooong time ago, I posted about a very special photo shoot starring Sam? Sam was recently featured in an article about pet safety for Cliff Notes, the newspaper published by the Rangers at Tonto National Monument.

Click to make the article bigger - hopefully you can read it! I think Sam looks very dignified in this article.

Of course, Monty wants to know when his turn is coming to be in a newspaper.

When do I get to go to a photo shoot?

We will find the perfect article for you too, Monty! Anybody in need of a handsome boy to feature with your article?

I wanted to close this article showing a blooper we had while taking these pictures. I didn't notice we had a photo bomber until I was looking at all the photos I had taken!

Happy Mother's Day

Dear Mom, (Dis Sam typing - his blog, after all!)

Monty and Sam wanted to get you a nice present this year, but we didn't have any money and we were going to get you some flowers from the yard, but we knew how much you like to see them in the yard.

We wanted to get you something that said how much we love you. You always clean our messes up without saying anything, you always stop to rub our ears and tell us we good dogs, and you always take the time to play with us - the games we like too! Chasing Sam around the pool table and rumpling Monty in the living room. You never too busy for us, you always talk to us, and you always bring us good things from the store.

Monty says to add that you always keep us clean and give us baths, although Sam doesn't see the nice in that, but Monty says to add it anyways. You make us collars and remember to keep treats in our jar. We your boys and we know it.

Monty and Sam want to wish you a very Happy Mother's Day, to the best doggy Mom we have! We love you, Mom!

That was a bad idea...

Have you ever bought your pups a toy, and realized only later that it was a bad idea?

Wal-Mart had a sale on giant tennis balls, and being a thoughtful doggy Mom, I bought both Sam and Monty each one.

Sam was happy with his, but after rolling it around for a few minutes, decided he liked tennis balls that he could carry a bit more...

Thanks, Mom, it's very nice.

Monty was overjoyed. He took one look at his ball and promptly challenged it to a fight to the death!

Thank goodness we don't have anything fragile! For a few minutes it sounded like a wild bull was loose in our house!

Monty eventually fought it to a standstill.

It's getting tired, Dad!

...and finally Monty managed to pop it! Elapsed time: 8 minutes and 34 seconds...

Here he is resting after his heroic battle!

After a quick nap he sprang into action!

Monty, is that Sam's ball you've got there?

Ummmm, no?

It didn't take as long to pop Sam's, but Monty is now the proud owner of two deflated tennis balls!

What did you see?

Monty, what are you looking at?

It was there! A little red light! I saw it!

Monty has been known to stare at the walls for days if he thinks he has seen a light - in the hopes that it will reappear. This should keep him occupied all night!
