Sammy Story 24: Come!

December 7, 2020 | News, Sammy Stories | No Comments

Image

Today was the day. I was going to teach this critter to “come” to me when I called. He was almost three years old and had never obeyed anyone to come to them. He was used to being cornered and grabbed when a human needed to get him. Unfortunately, this was the case when he…

Peace

Today, I ponder peace. My soul is besieged by many small things that for the sheer number of them, seem to almost overwhelm me. They are all things I must think about, plan for, or do, but it feels like I am being prevented from accomplishing the most important things I know God has in…

This blog was seeming to become a trifle long, so I had taken the first ten Sammy Stories off. But, because Christmas is near, I thought I would re-post them. They are short, and a great read for small and big kids. How to read: Scroll down till you see Story #1, then work your…

Sammy Story 10: Camping

December 4, 2020 | News, Sammy Stories | No Comments

Wednesday, Sammy came to live with us. Friday we went camping. We knew it was too soon, but we had no choice. After the fiasco in the RV storage place, I kept the little guy with me, and also kept him on a leash, just in case. The camping spot was open, with no fence,…

Sammy Story 9: Loose!

December 4, 2020 | News | No Comments

We had only had Sammy for less than a week, but we had already been booked for a weekend camping trip. We didn’t want to cancel, but we were very concerned how he would do. He wasn’t used to us yet. We didn’t know if we could tie him up to be with us outside,…

Sammy Story 8: Going Potty

December 4, 2020 | News | No Comments

Since Sammy followed me wherever I went, it was no problem getting him outside to go to the bathroom. As soon as he hit the turf, he knew what to do. Half the battle was over. He knew what grass was for! M also gave me valuable advice about this procedure. She told me not…

Sammy Story 7: Treats

December 4, 2020 | News | No Comments

Sammy finally trusted me enough to condescend to accept a treat from me. He loved those little dental treats shaped like a log with a hollow centre. He took it gingerly from my hand, looking around all the while in case someone was there to take it away. Then he toddled off with it towards…

Sammy Story 6: Drinking alone

December 4, 2020 | News | No Comments

In an effort to get the little guy to drink more, I placed three dishes of water on each floor, so he could be encouraged to drink. He did. But only at night. No matter where he drank, it was seldom during the day. I even hooked a large birdie drinking dish onto the inside…

Sammy Story 5: Safe places

December 4, 2020 | News, Sammy Stories | No Comments

Sammy needed a safe place. In his last home, it was his kennel, where he had his bed and his two favourite, miserable-looking “bunnies.” M told us that he would stay in his kennel in her office where he could be near her when she worked. She said she was hoping he could go to…
