Sammie as a Puppy

I'm a cute little wrinkle. . . . 7 weeks
old and 7 pounds big.


What was MaMa thinkin' when she bought me this bed? Did she think I was gonna turn into a St. Bernard?


MaMa bought me special little bowls. I always knew I was special cuz MaMa told me that in everything she did. My MaMa really loved me a lot. That's why I grew up to do great things, like start Sammie's Friends


Hi, it's me again. Man, was I small and wrinkly.

I'm so little you can hardly see me.
MaMa carried me around in a little sling
around her chest until I got too big.
I went on a big hike the very first
day she had me.

I was a little tyke takin' a poop. Later I had modesty and wouldn't poop in my own back yard and always went behind the bushes. Even as a 7-week-old puppy I never went in the house. Pretty awesome, eh?

I'm bigger here. See my wrinkles. They're cuter on me than MaMa.

I love this picture because
it shows how much MaMa loved me
and I loved her.


Wow! I didn't even know I could pose like this. I laugh at myself when I see this. Tee Hee!
