One Month with our Sammy

Today we've had Sammy for a whole month. Can't believe in just this short amount of time, he's just settled into our routine and taken over a big chunk of our hearts.  He is probably one of the sweetest Scottie boys I've ever met.  Such a loving little personality that only wants to please.  We've laughed more and actually feel lighter in our souls thanks to this 18.7 pounds of joy.

Sammy loves sitting at the top of the stairs like so many of our other Scotties in the past.  He realized that he can see out the front windows downstairs and see everything that is happening.

and he loves to bark!!!!!
Some things from his past I try to keep in his routine.  Pam would give him a rawhide stick, and so I am doing that every other day.  I ask him if he wants a "STICK", and he gets so excited.  He takes it to the studio which he decided is his bedroom and enjoys his treat

He also discovered the big basket filled with dog toys.  I think there are items in there that I originally bought for Fala back in the early 90s.  He one night picked every single toy out of the basket to inspect his new treasure.  He fell in love with Frodo's old red dog.  Then he decided to destroy it.

Here is the during picture of the "degutting of the Wobbie".  Can't you hear the thing scream...oh wait...that is Sammy huffing with enjoyment.
And Sammy figured out how to jump up on the big granite boulder at the back end of our property.  He sits there like a king surveying his domain.  He loves sitting there barking at the bunnies on the other side of the fence and at the squirrels chittering away at him from the upper branches of the Maple tree.
