I'd like to introduce you to our newest member of the family: 


Afton Trailblazer: Sammy

We were missing having a dog in our home so bad since Fi left us.  We thought about a puppy and had our names on several list.  Barb Zink from DanZin Scottish Terriers, whom I've known since very first getting on the internet, suggested that I get in touch with Pam Williams.  Pam Williams is another member of the Scottish Terrier Club of Greater Dayton.  I met Pam years ago when she first got into showing Scotties.  Pam offered me her 2 1/2 year old retired Champion Scout.  We decided it would be great to have an older Scottie join our family.  So Saturday April 13th 2013, we drove down to the Cincinnati area to Pam's home and picked our new boy up.  Pam's has Afton Scottish Terrier kennel.  We got to me all her girls and the wheaten boys.  It was great to see her again, and spend some time with a pack of loving fun filled Scotties.  The drive back to Columbus was so quiet.  He took quickly to our home and way of life.  And he stole our hearts.

We decided to change his name to Sam Wise Gamgee.  For those who are Lord of the Rings fans, he is named after Mr. Frodo's companion.  But he just didn't see to be a plain we named him Sammy.
