Here’s Sam

We have a new member in the Cramer pod. She’s black, with sharp little teeth and a tad on the naughty side. But her sweet temperament and the fact that she’s not had any accidents in the house, make her a keeper.

Samantha, Sam for short, met the cat yesterday. I’m thinking she’s never seen a cat. She howled and screamed louder than Hillary after Obama won the nomination. It was pathetic and now the cat thinks he’s big stuff. Oh just wait Simba, just wait. Sam is full blooded shepherd and I have a feeling she’ll change the pecking order within a couple of months.

Here is Lauren causing sibling rivalry as she hands the pup Macy’s ball.

Ok, let me explain. I was trying to blog and Lauren crawled into Sam’s kennel to play. I promise that I had nothing to do with it, and it is not locked!

~sigh~ You can clearly see, as could Lauren, that Sam does not like her kennel. Once again, it was the Hillary howl.

Gotta love kids and dogs.

    She'll eventually like it, once she finds out it's her own little spot.One thing that you can try that helped us out, is get a Kong. It's rubber, and kind of a honeycomb looking object. Once you get it, put peanut butter in it and put it in her crate. When she learns that she gets the Kong/peanut butter in the crate, she'll run to it.Hope that helps.

    Karen,By that time that posted it may have been false… just a couple so far. But I am a bit militant about following her around. 🙂

  13. Tux, our kitty, STILL RULES THE HOUSE. And he doesn't let Samantha, all 85 pounds of her, forget it. EVER.:)

  14. You just gotta love the bond between kids and dogs.Smiles!
