Resting in the Straw after a Long Day of Wheelbarrow Rides
"I wear Doggles, so the sun doesn't bother my eyes."
Sammy at 15 Years
Sammy's 15th Birthday Present
Valentine Present from Dad
Happy Father's Day, Dad! Sammy and Her Little Sister, Gracey
Breed: Poodle/Miniature Schnauzer
Favorite Food: Sammy enjoys Flint River Ranch Senior Plus food and the dry food you add water to (DryWater) for a nice gravy over her Senior Plus food! We try to keep her as healthy as possible!
Favorite Activities: We love working in our yard, and whenever we're using the wheelbarrow Sammy is always there waiting for her ride in it. Sammy also has a wagon that she rides around in and takes lots of naps in when we are outside.
Sammy is 15 and the bright sunlight bothers her eyes. So... she wears her "Doggles" on bright sunny days. She also falls asleep wearing these while she's sunning!
She is my pride and joy. She is so much a part of our lives. Everyone says she is so human-like they all wait for her to talk! I say she already does!
Sammy got a new red wagon for her 15th birthday! She had so many rides in the other one that she wore it out.
Sammy and Gracey are doing better. I don't know if it's a combination of things or what. Sammy did make a visit to the doctor about 2 weeks ago; she had an ear infection and we got to talking. The doctor started her on a medication for early Alzheimer's. He said for being as old as she is (15+) she is very alert and active. I told him I think she gets confused at times and has started to wander off. Since she's been taking this it's like having a younger Sammy back. She has been playing more, stays up a lot longer, and seems to tolerate Gracey more.
Sammy and Gracey's friend Josey is also in the Pet Gallery.
