One Year Samiversary

It's been one year since we brought home our little/huge dog Sam.

After 10 years of living with my dog Gracie (future blog about THAT upcoming) convinced me that life with a dog was really nothing but frustration and yelling.

Sam changed that. Sam is a labrador retriever, so that means he is nothing but a loving pile of fur who wants nothing more than to sleep, wag his tail and be interested in things. And destroy crap, but that's of no matter.

Here is a little photo journey of Sam's first year with us.

With us for just 30 minutes.

It's been a furry year, Sam. Here's to many more.

    1. Oh, you have GOT to know that I read your second sentence wrong.

      Or maybe I read it correctly.

      Oh, Mary Mary Mary....

  4. we came up from florida to see you guys at the infinity music hall in norfolk ct a few years back and then at the city winery in nyc ! i was the babbling idiot beside himself almost wetting his pants from the excitement of meeting you guys and almost passing out from Brad hugging me and getting pictures with yoy , oooh...and having our names said on stage , i almost needed to be hospitalized ! but we missed the chance to say hello at the city winery , we were talking with Michele and having the time of our lives , i felt like the nerd lucky enough to be sitting at the cool kids table , and before we knew the autograph line was gone and so were you . you guys are truly incredible ! we love your blogs and can't wait for the next show !......todd and colleen :)

  5. My parents have a dog named Sam. He's a mix (definitely part German Shepherd)...they got him as a puppy about 13 years ago when I still lived in Winnipeg. He's starting to slow down now, but since they got Maggie in March, he seems to have livened up a little.
