Sammy's Story
The Story of an Unadoptable Dog

Happy Happy Birthday to My Best Friend!!

December 28th is a very special day.  Because it is my Best Friend’s birthday.  And he was born in Montana on that day.  That’s not California.  But it’s not London or Canada too.  Because he came here by plane.

Here is him when he was little.   Isn’t he handsome?   And he is nice too.

 

 

The leash and collar he is wearing in this photograph below is the leash and collar I use now!  So he was as little as me in this photograph!  I don’t know how he got to be so big after that.  Because I didn’t!

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

And my Best Friend is very special to me.  Because he is always very kind to me.  He does a lot of things for me.  And I learned a lot of things from my Best Friend.  So many things that it’s  everything I learned from him.

Even though I came to live in his house where he was the only dog.  Even though he is much bigger than me.  And even though sometimes I do silly things.  And naughty things.  And embarassing things.  By accident.

Here is a birthday card for my Best Friend.

But there isn’t enough room in the card.  Because I want to say a lot of things to my Best Friend.  I want to say Thank You to my Best Friend for lots and lots of very many things.  And so here is  some of them.

Thank You My Best Friend for All These Things:

Letting me come to live in your house.

Letting me see I don’t have to be afraid of everyone.

Showing me how I don’t need to be afraid of everything.

 

 

 

 

Showing me how to trust people.

Showing me how to play ball.

 

 

Not getting too mad when I steal your ball you are playing with.

 

 

Never growling at me or hurting me.

Showing me where the squirrels go when they get to the bottom of the tree.

 

 

 

 

Barking with me to back me up when I bark even though you know I bark too much.

Not being embarassed to be with me even though I am very little.

Not being embarassed to be with me even though I don’t know how to behave lots of times.

 

 

Never getting cross with me.

Never looking down on me because I am mix.

Never looking down on me because I was stray.

Never looking down on me because I was homeless.

 

 

Never looking down on me because I looked bad.

Never  looking down on me because I smelled bad.

Never looking down on me because I was afraid.

Never looking down on me because I didn’t know how to behave.

Never bullying me.

Letting me chew your bones sometimes.

Running with me.

 

 

Letting me share your dog food every day.

Being big and protecting me.

Letting me ride in your truck.

 

 

Showing me how I can get my hair cut and it is all right.

Showing me how I can get my ears cleaned and be all right.

Showing me how I can get my teeth brushed and it is ok.

Letting me take a shower with you every time.

Letting me come everywhere with you.

Showing me how I can go to the vet and everything be all right.

Not getting mad because I don’t walk to Heel like you do.

Showing me how I can let people touch me and be all right.

Showing me how I can live instead of always running away.

Showing me how I can be happy.

 

 

Showing me how I can be me and be all right.

 

 

Thank you for all of these things.

 

 

And Thank You for everything else in case I forgot anything.

You are the very Best Friend ever in my life.

And here is my birthday card for you!
