Who is Sampson?
Age: Depends who you ask. But we believe he's 7 to 7 1/2 years of age. We got him when he was 4 1/2...or so they estimated.
Breed: We suspect Sampson is a Labrador mixed with a hound.
Background: We are Sampson's 3rd home. For some strange reason, he didn't work out too well in his other environments. Based on his first few months with us, I'm not sure those two environments were exactly ideal. He was skittish and hid when we ate dinner or human food of any type was around. He was well trained and scared of males with facial hair when he came to us. He's adapted very well.
Hobbies: Sam enjoys chewings sticks, pooping, peeing on everything(occasionally Lola, by accident), and eating as much as he can. He was trim when we got him, and then he got a bit porky. He's since dropped 15 lbs which makes it easier for him to frolic around with our energetic Ms. Lola. He's also been known to eat a little dirt from time to time. Pushing his head between the wooden beams out on the deck(as the picture shows) and waiting for dogs to stroll by is never out of the question.
God awful Fears: Thunder, Lightening, heavy rain, and Fireworks.
Fun Facts: Sam "moo's" like a cow when you talk to him. He will also jump up to your face and give you a kiss if you ask him to.
Nicknames: Fancy Feet, Sam, Samuel, Mr. S, and Weenie.
Summary: Sampson will melt your heart if you're not careful, whether it be by him raising his paw at you asking for more attention or the continuous "moo" sounds he makes as if he's trying to communicate with you. He's an extremely intelligent but goofy boy, and Ash and I consider ourselves very lucky to have found him. He compliments our other terror(Lola) perfectly.
