Sammy knew what to do with grass, yessir! You peed on it. He also knew it was the place you walked around in funny little circles until you finally squatted to poop. That was very good. So, three or four times a day, we would go out onto our upper deck, then down the two…

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,…

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…
