My Sammy

This is my baby Sammy 🙂 A 10 year old Golden Retriever, he is my world- my inspiration.  Whenever I’m down, he is the one to lift me up. He is dopey, clumsy and manages to tumble down the smallest of descents- but he is mine 🙂 He’s my little bundle of sunshine, and makes me happy when skies are grey. He is a major part of my life and the source of so much joy- I thought I’d share my muse with you. I even based a character on him (Dodge’s dog- who’s back home in Australia) and his loveable, silly personality I can’t get enough of! He’s the only one who’s never let me down, he’s the only one who’s been there through thick and thin. So if you’re ever in doubt, ever in a sad mood, ever stuck in a bout of Writer’s Block…get yourself a Sammy 😀

(My family laughs at both of us because we both do stupid things- here he is after he stuck his nose in a pipe full of soot)

And they think I’m strange because I sing his name through 80’s music (‘Samma Samma Samma Samma Samma-Calemeleon…) But hey- he’s a special part of my life I thought I’d share 🙂 (Sorry if I’m super boring, but I needed a smile)


Edit: Sammy passed away May 17th, 2015. I think of him every day, and there will never be another like him! He has a special place in my heart, and will always make me smile at all the memories we have. This isn’t a note to be sad, but a reminder to cherish your pets everyday! You may look back one day wishing you had more time with them. Those darn pets, holding a place in your heart like nobody else can ❤
