Life After Sam

As sad as it is that Sam is no longer with us, mom and I made a pact that we wouldn't sit at home wishing Sam was back with us.  Every work day, we go on at least 4 walkies!  Two before mom leaves and then one when she gets home and the last one right before our bed time.

On the weekends, we go out on adventures and we thought we would share some of our photos.

Here I am in front of a totem pole at the Aboriginal Friendship Centre just down the street from us.

This is the Ogden Point Breakwater.  Mom's been there before but it was my first time and I loved it!

Of course, it didn't hurt that most everyone stopped to say how cute I am!

At the end, in front of the lighthouse.

An afternoon walkie on the Galloping Goose Trail

At Cy Hampson Park where I can go off leash!  Mom wasn't sure how I'd do and if I went to far ahead, she'd yell my name and I'd run right back to her!

I got to meet lots of other doggies that were off leash as well.

Then in Sidney, mom and I snuck into a hotel!  I wanted to jump up on the ottoman but mom said no.

Another walkie at Cy Hampson.

Mom says we will go back here lots in the summer because it's a good place for us to veg out and watch the world go by...

Then on Sunday, we went to Beacon Hill Park where all the flowers are blooming and the ducks and geese are swimming in the ponds.

Look at all those lily pads!

It's hard to notice all those purty flowers with my handsome self in the picture but trust me... they are there!

So as you can see both mom and I are adjusting to life after Sam by keeping busy and going on lots of adventures!

Thank you for all your well wishes on losing our buddy.

The Darn Puparazzi!

A superstar always has a good bodyguard that watches out for you!

There are days when a dog just wants to sit outside and contemplate.

But the puparazzi has other ideas...

You try your darnedest to give them subtle hints...

But they don't take hints and you eventually have to call in the big dog!

"Hey! Big Dog!"

"Sir, how may I help you, sir?"

"Take care of business, Big Dog!"

"Move along you puparazzi ruffian!  The Superstar needs time for contemplation"

"I said, Move Along or I'm gonna have to get ruff!"

The Unusual Suspects

Check out the line up of the nefarious garden dwellers... a bunch of ruffians, they are!

Looks like one might be missing though....

That's better... the ring leader... the nefariousest of them all!

Ha ha!  No cookies for you!

Dear Pippen

Hey Everybuddy!

Today is a special day and I just wanted to let everybuddys how much Pippen means to me.  Ever since I went blind, I know that Pip will always be right next to me.

He watches out for me, makes sure I don't bang into anything or step into any kitteh poop!

I know he must think I'm a big pest some days...

I'm always asking him where we are and if there's anybuddy else around.

Even when mom buys him a new bed, Pippen lets me try it out first!

He make sure I don't get too close to the road...

and he laughs at all my jokes!

He's just an all around good guy and I get to call him my brother...

So today I'm hoping that everybuddy joins me in putting their paws in the air and wishing Pippen the best birthday ever! 

Happiest Number 10, Pip!

I'm glad me and mom made that trek all those years ago.

Mom and I loves you lots and lots!

Today's the day...

A long time ago, in a house a few blocks away...

The Sam was once a little baby doggie.

A puppy that liked to wear the cat's toys.

I soon turned into a boy that like to beat up girls with my brother...

and liked having girls chase me!

I've always known that wearing the right cologne for the right situation is imperative!

I've had to teach Labradors how to swim...

and how to retrieve the floaty from the water...

I've had to say good bye to lots of good friends....

All in all, I have to say...

These last eleven years have been filled with love and fun and joy!

Here's hoping I have eleven more!
