Sam's Update

Hi All

Sam here. It was fun rolling in the snow last week. I didn't care that there was snow. I love going out for my walkies, rain or shine. Dad complains about it being cold and wet. He doesn't like it much, especially after about an hour. He says I'm immune to the cold. LOL. Good for him that it is not quite so cold now. Most of the snow is gone and we'll just get some wet snow with the rain.

I had a bit of a weird hair day today. It was kind of sticking up on one side when I woke up. Bed Head...

It was swimming day today too. The pool was a little warmer than usual. It was okay at first but after a little while I think it was too hot for me. It was really tiring to swim today. I just wanted to get out and lie on the pool deck for a while but they made me go back in for a couple more laps.

We have some good news and some bad news (for mom and dad's budget). I'm getting pretty strong and developing a lot more muscle. My doctors are impressed with my progress so far. My front shoulders and legs have really gotten muscular. Just call me "Arnold". But I've grown so much up front that my wheely cart is getting too small and my mom and dad had to order another one from Eddies Wheels. Oops. It should be arriving on Monday.

I still don't have feeling in my back legs yet but they are getting more muscular too. When my mom and dad do my exercises with my legs, they notice that there is more resistance and that they twitch a bit so they think that's pretty good.

I'll have to get the folks to put up a picture of me in my new cart once it gets here!

Bye for now. Love and kisses to everyone.



  1. This is great news, Sam! We can't wait to see your new wheelie cart!

    Love ya lots

  2. hey Sam! we're sorry that your dad gets cold in the snow. maybe he needs a warmer coat and some mittens. you're tough, so you don't get cold. humans are... well.... weak. that's exciting that you are getting a new cart, but too bad that your humans have to pay green papers for it. is your money green in canada? ours is mostly green, so we call it green papers. anyway, we can't wait to see the new cart. and we're happy to hear that your back legs are getting stronger. you're a tough pup. oh yeah, and your bed hair is cute. we think you are very handsome!


  3. Hi, Sam!
    Yes! Pawesome news!
    I am very happy to know you are getting stronger "Arnold"!
    I will be waiting to see your new wheelies!
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  5. Hey Arnold, how's it going *wink*?

    Ok for real, we're so happy to hear that your hind legs are getting stronger too!!! Little bit at a time, you will get there. We will send you lots of positive thoughts until you get there! You have the bestest mom and dad, but I'm sure you know that already!

    Love nibbles,
