My Friend Sam

Dear friends, I would like to introduce to you my new friend - Sam. He is a 5 year old Cocker Spaniel cross, lives with his litter brother Owen, and two Sheltie siblings Tuvia and Jetta.

From left to right, Jetta, Owen, Tuvia, and Sam,

Couple months ago, Sam had an accident at home that resulted in a ruptured disc in his back. He lost the use of his hind leggies, and his mommy and daddy had to help him go to the bathroom. Sam sees my Auntie Janice too, and she gave his daddy my bloggie URL and they left me a comment. Ever since then mum has been in touch with Sam's family and we hear about his weekly improvements (GO Sam GO!). Sam now walks around in his Sam-Mobile and is absolutely loving it. He is such a happy, yet brave spirited boy!

Even though Sam is continuing to improve, this is still (has been) a daunting experience for his mommy and daddy (who love him SOOO much). Sam's daddy has started a blog for Sam documenting the accident, the treatments and therapies Sam is receiving in the hopes that it might be helpful for others facing the same ordeal. Can you guys drop by and offer some words of support?

Hello Miss Sunshade, your mom's very nice. Thank you for the post on your blog. We appreciate everyone's comments and visits. I enjoys getting out and being a part of everything. My walks in the morning and evening are easily stretching into an hour long affairs. Mostly that time is spent standing, taking everything in, watching while my dad explain to people what happened and how I'm doing. Everyone is very nice. Thank you once again.
