Adventure Weekend!

What a fun filled adventure weekend was had by us this weekend!

First of all, I lost Teddy and do you think anyone would help this blind dog out?  NO way!  I still have to do everything for myself.

Then on Sunday morning, mom was kinda slow in the getting up department so I decided to go downstairs by myself.  Not only are there 14 steps to get downstairs but also two turns.  Well I made it down nine steps just fine and then a paw slipped and it was lickety-split down the rest of them!  I managed to stay on all four paws and no damage was done.  Hopefully that teaches mom and important lesson about sleeping in on Sundays!

Then, later in the day mom bundle us off in the car and we went to the forest!

This is our first major adventure since I went blind so mom choose a nice easy trail that we've been on before.  As you can see, I don't let the not seeing thing stop me from off roading!  All the good smells are in the brush...

Pippen has taken to complaining that I'm a slow poke and he always has to wait for me... whine, whine, Pippen.

Mom keeps me on a short leash now.  She says its to keep me out of dangers but did it help when that tree got in my way?  No!  Once again, mom was busy looking at the scenery and totally forgot about the Sam and the propensity of walking into things... like trees... because, you know, we were in the FOREST!

This isn't the tree I bumped into... mom just wanted a nice picture of the Sam.

And just look at who thinks he's the big boss now!  Taking charge and walking across the bridge first!  I believe somedawg is getting to big for his britches!

Now it's Monday and mom is back at work... so you know what that means, right?

We'll be doing a whole lot of this!

Hope everybuddy has a super duper week!


  1. Sam,'re lookin' good! They say it's all about the nose when the eyesight goes. Maybe you can get your mom to put some smelly stuff on your Teddy and the toys you love most. Your forest is beautiful.

  3. Good for you sam - just can't you see anymore doesn't mean you can smell and hear even better than before....and we do smell pee mail to read it - not look at it :) :) :)

  4. *sheesh* You'd think they'd have a little more respect for the 'visually challenged'. BTW, when our Mom tries to sleep in on Sundays, we have found it most effective to start biteying until Mom gets up.
