A Day in the Life...

Sammy, aka "Bad Sammy" (not really bad....just a little naughty)
requested that I show you a typical day in his life.

I'm not sure there has ever been a happier farm dog than Sammy.
Every day is filled with adventure for this little "dude."


From running and playing with Oakley...


to visiting with all of his friends...


Sam packs more activity into one single day than any living being that I know.


He can run for miles and miles... hours and hours of endless exercise...
without tiring.


At the slightest hint of a fun activity, Sam is ready to participate!

He loves long walks in the woods, where he runs with abandon,
nose to the ground....


finding the lingering scents of animals that passed that way before him.


He plays roughly, sounding like a junk-yard dog.

When circumstances call for gentleness,


he is the perfect gentleman...


kind and patient and tolerant.


The book of Sammy's life has several chapters.
From a pup, found wandering in the woods with his brother...
to an animal shelter where he was rescued by my son, Andy...
he lived his first two years in North Carolina
before moving to the farm two summers ago.


Sammy is a high energy dog and is not happy in a neighborhood situation.
Living in Andy's townhouse, he was destructive when left alone.

He is the best farm dog, ever....
never destructive,
respectful of the other animals,
a great predator hunter,
and at the end of the day.... a lap dog, cuddle bug!


And with all that activity...


he sleeps like a rock!

I always enjoy hearing about Sammy. He seems to really enjoy the company of all the animals, and I love seeing the photos of him with the piggies! Your animals get on so well together. How are the turkey boys? Do the stars say they will be finding romance this year?

Could there be a better life for Sammy? I don't think so. I like when the horses chase him. All I can think of is tag.

That gives "he was sent to the farm" a whole new perspective! ;) ~Kim

All dogs should live in the countryside and have the opportunity to run and play as dogs were meant to do. Sammy is so awesome and I love that he leads such a normal dog life. xox

He has the best life possible for a dog. I love how the piggies show him their affection.

What a great story! I am not really a dog person, I love cats and have always had several at a time. But I love all animals and love to hear about them and knowing they are happy.
