Sam now has a backyard full of toys, a new doggie igloo, plenty of water and food, a vet who is watching out for his health, a master that walks him almost every night (let's correct that, Sam walks his master) and a German Shephard next door that thinks Sam belongs to her. The shephard runs the fence when Sam is in training mode. He has a lot of "puppyness" that he will grow out of with age. He is a pure joy. We are glad to have this chocolate lab as part of the family. SAM, I AM!
