Introducing the newest SWEETHEART to arrive in RAGOMLAND!!! This is SAM (aka Radar, Elf, and our new favorite name—Wookie—which you can only understand when you play with Sam!) Sam and 11 other doggies belonging to other rescue groups made the long 6 hour transport from the southern border of Iowa up to the Twin Cities just 5 days ago. Thank you to those very special angels that brought Sam all the way to us! We are so thankful to have the privilege to meet and foster such a doll! Sam walked right in our home, met our pack with a few play bows and made himself right at home. Ahhhh…that is always a pleasant start!
Not much is known about Sam’s history as he was found as a stray about 6 years ago by a Good Samaritan and there he stayed until the family lost their home. With not many other options, Sam was surrendered to a local rescue group by his owner in hopes he will have a better life…and that is something we will make sure of!
Sam weighs in at a whopping 44lbs. and is thought to be a 10-11 years old, neutered male Golden Retriever MIX---the vet has the mix pegged as GR/Australian Sheppard, but Foster Dad thinks some Terrier is in there---but we are sure there is some “herding/working” dog breed blended in this beautiful Golden boy for sure! One thing's for certain--Sam has a heart of Gold and everyone that has met him has fallen completely in love!!! Just wait Sam is super playful and makes the funniest noises when he wants to play---hence the “Wookie” name! Seriously---we crack up when he wants to play----he makes the craziest noise from deep within this sweet little peanut!
Sam did not receive any vetting in the 6 years with the surrendering owner and the living conditions were not the best for this boy, so Sam's skin is recovering from a bad flea issue and the effects of poor nutrition. With a few oatmeal baths and some good Flea killer (what a God send that was!) under his belt, we are starting to see the scabs, flakes & itchies disappear. And,of course---GOOD Food! In just 5 days, his skin on his back, rear, and tail look so much better!!! Sam totally loves to be pampered (hmmm maybe a new concept for him?) and will play “dead” for hours to be brushed!
Sam also received his second nail trim IN A WEEK as his nails had been severely neglected---the first cut removed about 10 inches total (Thank you Joyce!) and the second trim—another 5! Yes---still more to go but we need to wait until the quick recedes a bit more. I think Sam has found his freedom to run and play again---you’d never guess he was 10+years old the way he wrestles and plays tug-a-war.
We made a trip to the Vet for Sam's first checkup and Sam passed all his tests with flying colors! Negative on everything!!!!! Loved to hear that! I think even the Vet was surprised since Sam was looking a bit rough! Sam got the “works” at the vet and he is now UTD with shots, blood work is good, officially micro-chipped, and has started a joint supplement---time to spoil this boy and make him feel like a kid again! Of course, Sam has all the lumps and bumps, and loss of hearing (probably 80% gone) of a senior boy, but hey---don’t we all! Doc wants to recheck one kidney # that was just a tad elevated, but the other 2 kidney numbers were right in line, so the vet said it could be just the change in food, so will recheck that one # in a few weeks to confirm either way. Again---very normal for a Senior Boy!
I could go on and on…but I will fill you in as we learn even more about Sam the Man!
Sam is looking for a Great FOREVER HOME----one filled with lots of love, walks, and humans to pet and play with him!
We will be out at the Plymouth PetSmart event on 2/12 for Sam’s Valentine Kissing Booth! Come out and get a Sam’s special---but I’ll warn you----make sure your mouth is closed! Hope to see you all there!
P.S. if you are already in love and can’t wait till the 12th—contact your placement advisor---I totally understand...he does have that effect on people!
Hi Sam Fans!!!
A few more things I'd like to share about this funny little guy. Sam loves to play with his humans and with other dogs. He's been engaging our 3 residents in play and he loves to engage us! FD and Sam have a playtime every night together.
As you can tell...Sam is missing a bit of hair behind his rear as about 5 lbs. of "dreadlocks" were cut away at his first "grooming" session. His fur is thin in back due to the fleas...but will surely return as his skin continues to improve. Sam is a total cuddle bug and he surprised us last night when he climbed up on the couch next to his foster dad for a little more play and then some cuddle time.
He is just a little sweetheart and a total joy to foster! Sam is sooooo good on a leash. Walks a few feet in front of you at a nice clip without pulling. According to his surrendering owner, Sam lived with 2 other dogs and some cats. I will try to get him cat tested to verify, but I can tell you he is so unassuming and just blends right into our pack.
Sam has FREE ROAM night and during the day while we are away for 6 hours...starting Monday it will be 8 hours which I don't anticipate any issue with. He hasn't chewed on one thing inappropriate and sticks to playing with his rope and a stuffed dog we have. He sleeps right through the night without a peep and likes to sleep in! Sam had an upset belly one night and had an accident (we think it was the new "supplement" or a new treat) but other than that---he has proven totally potty trained. Sam loves being outside with the dogs and loves to explore. We never leave him on his own...as we are always outside with our dogs, but when Sam can't see you or he wants to play----he will bark until you acknowledge him. HA!!! Who is training who???
Well...time to go cuddle with the little love bug! More to come soon...
Hi Sam Fans! I just can’t keep this cutie pie to myself!
Sam and his foster fur-butt brother Jonah played fetch (or keep away) in the snow all weekend. Jonah is a youngster and is very respectful to his “elders.’ Sam on the other-hand thinks he can keep up with the pack just fine. I think Sam is our doggie version of Betty White! HA!!!! Comedian and all!
“Hey, wait up!”
“OK Grandpa…you can have this one.”
“Ahhh…youngsters! They fall for it every time.”
As you can tell, we think this little guy is a total GEM!!! If you are interested in meeting Sam (Seriously…you have to meet this boy…Seniors RULE!!!), just let your placement advisor know or come out and meet him in person on Saturday at PetSmart in Plymouth from 11-1! Kisses will be waiting for you!
Yahoooooooo!!!! I can seriously say, I’ve never been so happy to find out a dog has worms!
You see, our little Wookie Sam had a few odd bouts with diarrhea this week. I tried different food and then just white rice which seemed to work for a few days and then another bout of the brown smelly stuff. Of course, you start fearing the worst and that elevated kidney # kept haunting me so off to the vet we went yesterday to see what’s going on with our little guy and the news we got is…well…GROSS… but so SWEEEEEET!!!
Turns out…the first fecal sample that was taken was not the best and/or the worms were incubating...so come to find in the second fecal test that Sammy has Whip Worms! See, you are just as excited as I am! (Go figure!) Not a big deal at all and just 3 packets of a special dewormer and we are going to be worm and diarrhea FREE by Monday! AND---even BETTER news---Sam’s elevated kidney # is no longer elevated! For a boy that hasn’t been to the Vet in years and is 10+ years old---he’s in awesome shape---as most Wookies are you know?
Sam thought the news was just as delightful as the rest of us….I wish these pictures had sound because Wookie can sing a tune like nothing you’ve ever heard---trust me!
Yes—we like to dress the boy up….HA!!! If Chewbacca can wear cool cloths, so can the Wook! Just kidding---Sammers is being deterred from scratching the last patch of healing skin on his rear end. Another oatmeal bath tonight should calm that some more and to make him even prettier for his big appearance at the Plymouth PetSmart on Saturday!!!! Come out for some song and kisses---both Sam’s specialties!
Sam is hoping to also make an appearance at the Richfield event on 2/13…as you can tell...our home is being renovated and the floor finishers are coming out on Monday, so if we get all the work done on Saturday, we might get to come out for a short time on Sunday. We are hopeful anyways!
Hello SAM FANS!!!
Thank you all sooooo much for coming out to meet the Wookie! So many people commented on his this little peanut and couldn't believe he was 10+ years old. I seriously was surprised by how social and interested he was with EVERYONE! "HELLO WORLD! Where have you been?" I think was Sam's song of the day!
Dogs of every size and personality, Grandpas & Grandmas, Moms and Dads, and little tikes of all ages attracted Sam like a magnet as he moved in for pets and love one after another. Sam wouldn't sit still---too many people and dogs to meet you know! And of course, the only dog that didn't want Sam's attention was the one Sam tried hardest to make friends with--Sammy is definitly a lover not a fighter...if fact I don't think there is a mean bone in his body.
Sam was totally in his GLORY at the event and so I've learned a few more things about him and now can best descibe what we believe Sam dreams about in his FOREVER home:
- a loving home with/without kids---but with access to children as he just lights up when they are around---maybe because they are more his size and just as unassuming as he is. Other pets are a plus---Sammy likes companionship too!
- a fun/mellow home where his family knows/accepts he's a Senior--but are willing to treat him like an youngster---meaning playtime and fetch and daily walks and cuddletime on the couch and kisses and brushing---which he LOVES!
- an "on the go" home where Sammy can ride along (LOVES CAR RIDES!)---run errands, go to friends homes, walk the kids to the bus, go to baseball games, or just take in a walk and visit all the neighbors and their 2 and 4-legged creatures. Also---Sam was left for 8 hours during the day all week and didn't have one accident. He's a gentleman you know! The only night time poop accident we had was related to the "worm" issue, but none since we started th dewormer.
- a compassionate home where Sam can spend his Golden years being Sam--without anyone trying to change him to be what they want but to see that this little boy is absolutely a wonderful dog just the way he is. Sam may be hard of hearing and not the best eye sight--which makes verbal commands worthless and sign language priceless--but Sam compensates greatly with his Golden personality that will melt your heart and bring so much joy to your home!
If you are looking for a chance to open your home to an amazing, grateful, silly companion that has so much life to give and has the biggest heart of Gold....please contact your placement advisor. Until you've loved a Senior dog, you haven't experienced the true meaning of "companionship."
After a day of being Mr. Social...Sam turned himself in early for a nice afternoon nap. And Yes...he is as beautiful and sweet on the inside as he is on the outside!
HI SAM Fans!
The little Wookie LOVES, LOVES, LOVES his walks and is the first to the gate when the leash comes out…HA! This must have been a big treat for him in his past life.
“C’mon FM…Let’s GO!”
Notice the tail! He’s such a happy boy!
Sammers is going to be out at the RAGOM Education Booth at Canine Crossings in Ham Lake on Saturday from 11-1 to spread the word about RAGOM! He’s very proud to be a RAGOM Boy, so come out and say “HI” to Sam and all the other RAGOM doggies!
Hope to see you all there!
Hi Friends! It’s ME—Sammy!
I’ve been having so much fun at my foster home---but FM tells me I’m gonna even have more fun with my forever family some day when they find me! Am I lost or something?
I had so much fun at the event on Saturday! I met lots of nice people that came out see what a Wookie is…HA…can’t believe they didn’t know. Thank you for all the pets and loving I received…does it really get better than this? Foster Mom tells me I’m going to be a very lucky boy when my forever family finds me so I thought I better tell you a little more about myself…and all the things I like to do. I know FM told you that I LOVE going for walks!
I love being brushed by my 2-legged foster sister---PURE HEAVEN INDEED!
I love to wrestle with her too!
I know I look tough when I open my mouth…but that’s how I play and trust me--I’m just playing! I never bite down---I just use my mouth and my Wookie sounds to act like a tough guy, and to make you laugh, but when you rub my face, I just melt and lean in for some lovin’ FM LOVES when I do that. She also loves when I wrestle with her because I act like I’m 3 yrs. old again and in my mind I’m 3 but of course a strong wind can come along and push my back end right over….but I get right back up…no problem. Darn…I wish my hind legs were 3 yrs. old again, but hey, you enjoy what you have and I definitely do that! I run around and do the stairs and play with the dogs no problem. I do require a little boost into the car, but other than that…I’m good to go! Speaking of the car…
I LOVE car rides! I’m a really good Co-Pilot----just ask FM, and no matter how cold it is…I love hanging my head out the window!
And…I can’t forget to tell you…I love to sleep in---and I think FM would say this is my only down fall. You see, my foster family gets up early during the week and I would rather sleep so they have to wake me up, lift me to my feet and get me going out to go potty and eat so they can go to work. Gosh…wouldn’t it be easier if everyone got up at 8am rather then 5am? Hmmmm…maybe my forever family will have a more reasonable sleep schedule….
Well…gotta run…nap time! See…so much to offer and so little to ask for. Love, fun, care, and a family! C’mon forever family….I’m right here waiting for you!
HI Sammy (a.k.a. Wookie) Friends! Look who is back in RAGOM Land.
Sammy was adopted out to a wonderful family with three young girls just about two months ago. We received cute pictures and great updates during that time and the family was so very happy with Sammy in their home. Their most recent update said, “He is just so sweet and good! The perfect dog!” Sam was very much loved and the young girls gave Sam lots of attention, hugs, and kisses which he seemed to tolerate just fine. Although, too often we misread a dog’s “smile” as “tolerant” or "happy" when in fact the dog is sometimes saying, “Hey, I’m uncomfortable here—please stop.” Dogs will often continue to give “signals” until they have only one option left and that is an open mouth correction—sometimes it's a quick nip and sometimes a bite—and this time it was an open mouth correction to the youngest girl in the family much like a dog would do to correct another dog. Luckily, the little girl is physically ok--no stitches or deep wounds—but it was a correction none the less and a reminder to all of us what can happen when we misunderstand or are unaware of our dog's communication. One thing we can all do to help prevent such events is to learn about doggie "signals" and help pass the information on. One good website on doggie language is: http://www.liamjperkfoundation.org/talk.html
It is still unclear as to what exactly happened with the little girl and Sam. Sammy’s adoptive mom could only tell us that she heard a sudden yelp from Sammy and then came a scream from her 4 yr. old daughter. Luckily for Sam, the family does not blame him as it was completely out of his character and they know that something must have accidentally hurt him or startled him for Sammy to react physically. Regardless, the incident served as reminder that every dog has its limits and since the family had had a previous bad experience with “biting” from their first dog, they decided now was not the time for a doggie in the family and so Sam returned to us.
I’m happy to say that Sammy returned as if he had never left our home! He met the whole gang with no issues, ate, played, snuggled, and found his old bed and slept all through the night and was happy to take a few laps around the yard with us this morning.
Sammy was obviously well taken care of at his adoptive home and we know they miss him already as much as we did when he first left us. We can’t get over how beautiful his coat looks and how incredibly happy he is.
Sammy is once again looking for his forever home. We want Sammy to have every opportunity at a successful future and so we will limit possible applicants to those without small children. Other than that, Sammy is ready to meet you.
The Foster Band of Brothers
Sam 11-010 far left, and proceeding clockwise
Resident Shadow, RAGOM Boy Frisbee 04-278,
and Resident & Former RAGOM Boy Jonah 09-080 at the bottom
Come out and meet this super sweet senior boy at the 4/30 RAGOM Event at the Quarry PetSmart. He’ll be the Wookie-looking Boy hanging out with Frisbee 04-278! Hope to see you all there! J
Sam 11-010 will be attending both RAGOM events this weekend:
Quarry PetSmart from 11-12
Coon Rapids PetSmart from 1-2
Hope to see you all out in the sunshine with us!
Do you like my new tie? Everyone “oohhhh’d” and “aaahhhh’d” at me when I came back from the doggie spa!
My beautician said I am the sweetest doggie ever and that I can carry quite a tune. She said there must be some Husky in me to sing so sweetly (not to mention my fine double coat she brushed out).
I liked my tie so much, I wore it out to both events yesterday and it was a big hit! Thank you to everyone that stopped by with treats and pets---I had a great time meeting you and eating so many yummy treats! Honestly, I was totally pooped out on the ride home; but once I got home and the sun was shining, I was ready to have some more fun!
Ahhhhh…Life is good in RAGOMland! I’m having so much fun at my foster home, but I really miss having a family of my own. I’m such a good boy and so carefree. I really like to go places with my people and LOVE going for walks! I’d like to have another dog around or at least one to visit with, but I’m totally cool being the only dog as long as I have my people to love and they love me back! I don’t really need a fence, but would need a tie out if you are not outside with me. I don’t need a kennel and can be totally trusted in the house when you are gone. I need a normal potty break schedule—but don’t we all? I am left alone when my foster folks go to work from 7am to 3:30pm with no issues----told you I’m a good boy! Ohhh…and I like to sleep in---Bonus right? This 5am stuff is for the birds if you ask me!
Well, time for dinner, so I’ll catch you later! If you are interested in meeting me, please let your placement advisor know. J
Don't let this boy's age fool you... Sammy can keep up with the best of them!
Sammy is VERY social and likes to get in on, and often instigates, play with his foster fur siblings. Sammy is here with Resident Miley and Frisbee 04-078.
Sammy has been a big help with getting Frisbee to "play" with the other dogs. In this photo, Sammy had Frisbee all worked up into a case of the "Zoomies."
This little love bug is one special boy! I can't help but wonder if Sammy and Frisbee might be a good pair together. They remind me a bit of the "Odd Couple," for those of you that remember Oscar and Felix. They are both "characters"--different in many ways, yet similar too. And like the Odd Couple, they seem to bring out the very best in each other. It will be interesting to see how their relationship continues to develop over time... stay tuned!
Hi Sammy Fans!!!
The little Wookie has had a really busy week. Sammy has been volunteering to do RAGOM Home Visits with Resident Miley and I and he loves every minute of all the attention! WE love taking “Seniors” on Home Visits to show that they are not old rickety doggies---HA! Sammy sure helped defy the myth no doubt…and of course he shared a tune or two! Last night, I tried to just take Miley for some “girl time” alone with FM, but Sammy would have none of that…as he made his way past us and stood by the car door ready to go. Like I can resist this little guy! I can’t emphasize enough his love of car rides!!! Sam’s ideal family I imagine will be a person (s) on the go that would love having a car companion, a walking companion and a life companion.
Sammy is definitely a “day-brightener.” We went to visit a friend of ours who just helped her RAGOM doggie to the Rainbow Bridge and leave it to Sam to make her day! He sat right next to Natalie and just smiled, leaned into her, and made her giggle—so awesome! One look at that face—it’s hard not to smile!
I would love to see Sam visiting nursing homes to share his happiness and his tunes with his new forever family someday! He’s such a happy boy and a wonderful little friend to have by your side!
We will be out at the Stillwater Petco event on Saturday from 11-1. Sammy is getting his tie pressed and fur fluffed for the occasion! Please stop by and meet this sweet peanut---you will definitely leave with a smile on your face…or perhaps a lil’ Wookie of your own! Hope to see you all there!
Sam & FM
Well---the lil' Wookie gave us a lil' scare this week. After having a wild week of play with some much too eager doggies, Sammy started limping. Then, a slight slip on the steps landed Sam on the floor and his limp soon turned into a 3-legged hop. Nothing appeared broken, no visible swelling or tenderness; Sammy kept a good appetite, but was clearly not himself at all.
Foster brother Jonah even knew Sammy was not feeling well!
Luckily, the vet found Sammy's hip to be in good working order (which was FM's worst fear), but the vet suspects slight damage to Sam's right rear ACL. Sammy needs to continue on R&R for the next week---no play and no activity--and of course a good med to ease any discomfort he feels.
After a week of continued rest and Rimadyl, Sam will be checked again to see if some progress has been made. Please keep Sam in your thoughts and doggie prayers for a good recovery for this special boy! The vet was pleased with Wookie's overall physical condition and vitals so we are hopeful Sammy will be on the mend soon! And that's a thought even Sam can sing about!
Sing it Sam!
Hi Wookie Fans!
Little Sammy is doing soooo much better!!! The week of Rest & Rimadyl has been very good to Sam and he’s silly as ever! Wookie is back to climbing stairs and insists on running, but we are limiting his speed with a leash for now. We head to the vet tomorrow for a check-up on his knee…then we head out to meet a family that has caught Sam’s eye! If there is time, and IF Sam is doing ok---we “might” be able to swing by the event at Ollu. Sammy is feeling good, but still needs to rest and take it slow in order to heal, so FM might decide he’s had enough activity for the day. Lord knows, if it was up to the Sam---we’d be on a World Tour.
It’s tough to keep a Good Dog down—you know?
Paws crossed for good “knee” news from the vet J
We have exciting news to share! First, Sammy got the "thumps-up" from the vet that good healing was taking place and to continue on with his Rimadyl and low daily activity plan--adding a little more exercise each day. Sammy has arthritis in his hips so activity is good for this boy and you can be sure you won't get any complaints from him on that!
And--Our most exciting news is....SAM is now a member of the "C" family!!! He met a wonderful family---much like himself---and chose to jump in the truck and drive away with them tonight! Sammy has found his forever home and we know that he will spend the rest of life being LOVED and doted on---we wanted nothing less for our Wookie and now he has it!
I tried to get a good family photo, but Sammy was too interested in belly rubs to pose, so we will have to wait for his new family to send in a "Happy Endings" post when Sam has settled in.
We love you Wookie and know you will bring your new family many days filled with laughter and love! Thank you "C" family for giving Sammy the home he has always wanted! What a blessing!
From Sammy's Forever Family to his Foster Family:
Thank you so much for letting us adopt Sammy! He is a good boy and we are very lucky to have him join our family. Although it did take us two days to make him feel safe and comfortable in our home, we are happy to let you know that Sammy is now back to his silly, playful self--we heard his funny Wookie noises for the first time on Wednesday! It was such an honor (and relief) that he came out of his shell to play with us.
Sammy spends most of his time in the front room. He has yet to venture into our bedroom, even though we have made a path out of bath rugs for him. It would seem he prefers a towel to the cushiony bed we bought just for him, both of which are in the front room. So, we would lay the towel out on the rug, and he would walk onto it and scratch at it as if to make a nest before plopping down, a process we find cute and puzzling at the same time.
We took our Wookie for a ride to Fleet Farm the other night--yes, he loved it, as you can imagine. One of the things we bought for him was a sixteen-foot retractable leash, which brings us to the topic of walking, another activity he loves. We have been using this leash instead of the flat one you lent us (which we will soon return to you) and he really enjoys the wider range it provides. In addition to that, we think the retractable leash works very well for his safety since he cannot hear verbal commands. Either Sammy has had training on it before or he instinctively knows how to respond when we press the brake button--he would turn back toward us (most of the time) and follow the path we are going. This boy is so easy to walk and the happy look on his face is just priceless. You know how frisky he gets when he is outside!
Tomorrow is a big day for us as we are taking him to the vet for the first time. We will discuss his food, supplements, and medications with the doctor. Also, we are concerned about how much he itches himself, so we will ask the doctor to have a look at his skin. Hopefully, it is not an infection or allergy. But whatever it is, we are committed to giving him everything he needs. You took excellent care of him before we found him, and now it is our turn. We will keep in touch and send you more pictures when we manage to take them.
Chien and Alan
From Sammy's (aka Wookie) Forever Family:
Hello from the Oregon coast! Sam has been handling all the changes wonderfully. He is an excellent car rider and the perfect hotel guest. As expected, he loves the cool weather here and pays no attention to the rain and sand. I have attached a few pictures. The first one was taken near Yellowstone River in Montana--look at Sammy run!
The second one was our visit to the Multnomah Falls--a first for both me and Sam.
The third one was the first day we hit the coast--as you can see, Sammy had a blast exploring the beach!
His tail is definitely up and wagging a lot more now! We love him so much!!!!
Sam has happily settled into our new life in Oregon. We found a single-level house with wall-to-wall carpeting which suits our boy perfectly. He seems more relaxed here than he was in our last home that had hardwood floors (albeit covered with rugs), not to mention the ever intimidating stairs.
When we adopted Sammy, his fosters sent him along with two rope toys – thanks, Julie and Jeff! Although he hardly showed any interest in toys initially, he decided after a few months to pick up the rope toys and play with them. Mysteriously enough, our Wookie has determined that the best times to play tug or fetch are when we are either having a meal at the dining table or watching a movie on the sofa; other times, he seems absolutely content to just hang out with us. If he wants to play and we try to ignore him, this smart guy would keep looking at us with those big puppy eyes while swinging the rope around until we simply cannot resist his cuteness anymore. Once in a while, he would swing the rope so hard that he hits himself in the head with it. As my husband often says, Sam can never do anything without being cute!
We have always encouraged Sammy to join us on the sofa for snuggles, but for whatever reason, he almost always goes back to the floor after a few minutes. On the other hand, if we sit on the floor with him, he is in heaven! Sammy looks like the happiest dog in the world when he is getting belly rubs from his dad.
Another thing that makes our boy happy is food. We frequently have to resist his adorable begging, and he can be quite vocal at times, serenading us with his wonderful Wookie songs as we eat. Despite his interest in human food, when Sammy eats his meals – which are a mix of grain-free dry dog food and cooked green beans – he picks out the beans, spits them out all over the floor, gobbles down his kibble, then eats the beans last. He also enjoys either a roasted bone or a beef trachea twice a week and they have kept his teeth surprisingly clean.
As his caregivers, we are proud to have helped Sammy become healthier. He has gained some much needed muscle mass on his back legs and his stamina has improved. When the weather is nice, Sammy goes for three walks every day; and at least once a week, we take him to the beach or one of the beautiful state parks along the coast. Big, open spaces seem to bring out the puppy in our dear boy. Whenever we are on a beach or in a field, Sammy loves to run with a goofy grin on his face and his tail held high – a spectacular sight that makes our hearts swell!
We are very happy and grateful to be Sammy’s forever family. No matter where we go, Sam the Wookie will have his forever home with us as a cherished member of our pack.
