Happy Monday Friends. I hope you had a great weekend filled with relaxation and love. On Friday, our daughter and her five kiddos as well as their two dogs(Petrol and Sampson)came to spend the day with us. They were getting new roof on and needless to say Sampson is one big dog who is very protective; it was decided with the heat-we've been in the high 90's, it would be better to have him at our house. Now you must understand, Sampson is a 120 lb Newfie/Lab/Husky mix who is around 11 yrs old. He isn't as agile as he used to be; that boy could jump about four feet off the ground-all fours. Anyway, the poor old guy was pretty stressed at our house, because he hasn't been in a car for years or left their area. He did fine considering and it was a trial run in case the family has to stay with us for a night when they are moving. For some weird reason, I didn't have any photos of Sampson; so took some this morning. He is such an incredible dog and we all love him. Here is he; you can see that he is still shedding and also has a bandage on his rear leg. Somehow when the family was camping, he got a cut on it.
The family will probably get another big watchdog, since our sil travels a lot, but they aren't sure whether they will get an inside dog that doesn't shed or another dog that can handle the Colorado winters. I just don't want to think about it yet.
I will say that Hunter was quite perturbed that another dog was in his yard on Friday; he's only met Sampson once when he was a puppy and I was more afraid that with Sampson's play and jumping he might hurt Hunter.
Well, I'm off to see if I can get some tank tops for this hot weather. I'm sure that all the fall clothing is in, but I'm going to try.
Have a great day friends.
