Samaritan is 3

We have never seen Sam so handsome. Thank you, Zoolatry!

Today is Samaritan's 3rd birthday. We would be celebrating his Gotcha Day in July but back then we'd never heard of such a thing. So instead we're celebrating the birth date Jan assigned him. He found us just two months before Miss Mother (Jan's mother) passed away. Miss Mother missed her dogs, both of which had left for the bridge, and she really wanted Sam -- big as he was -- to stay with her and Rusty.

Samaritan, Happy Birthday!

And Sam -- Gypsy, Mollie & Annie sent you a birthday card. Thanks, GentleAnnie.

Sassy baked so many cakes last year when she threw a surprise party for you and Rusty that we found one still in the freezer. We know you have a big appetite but we're hoping you'll share a piece with us and your friends.

And we found a video for you, Sam. We hope you like it.

Your furry siblings,
JFF -- Crystal, Cotton, Merci, Cyndi, Percy, Cameron, Buddy & Rusty
Oh, and Jan

  4. Heya Sam,
    Add 12 more big HAPPY BIRTHDAY greeting to your pile. We think that you need to seriously consider celebrating Gotcha Day in July; a guy can never have too many celebrations. Afterall, isn't the day that you entered Ms. jan's life something to celebrate? Happy Birthday big guy.

  40. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY SAM!!! We are so sorry that we missed your special day!

  41. Dear Friendz, Hi! We wanted to say thanks for stopping by but we are truly distrest that you cannot fake Jan out with the secret door move for getting onto the computer, and we are going to have to try to figur something else out for you! Clearly Jan is a very crafty human. Also, Samaritan, Two Paws UP! for your outstanding birthday, which apparently is 3, and we are pretty sure that is the number after 978573, which is a truly outstanding age to be! Love, your PaLs, LuLu and LoLLy!

  42. I am sorry I missed your birthday, but Mommy says that there is something our home computer dosen't like when we try to visit you - something about a script not running right!
    We've missed you and hope we can figure out why we can't visit from home!


Thanks for coming by. We love to hear from you.
