Sammy Story 8: Going Potty

December 4, 2020

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

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…

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

The Day We Met He was shaking with terror as I pet him in his kennel. M said that it was his safe place and he practically lived there. It was in her office, so he could be near her, the only person he trusted.I asked if I could hold him and was surprised that…

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…
