Yesterday, Pet Faves had a post on Facebook that asked, if your pet had a job, what would it be? I responded with Delilah would be a taste tester, and Sampson would be a greeter at Wal-mart.
Sampson just loves people, and he makes friends everywhere we go. A couple of weeks ago, we ran into one of our ‘friends’ (Blanche) on our afternoon walk. I stopped for a quick chat, when one of Sampson’s other friends (Rich) came strolling by, so I introduced them.
After Rich left, Blanche said to me, “You know more people than I do in this neighborhood.”
And I responded with, “It’s because of him, he just loves people SO much.”
Honestly, he makes friends al over the neighborhood, and he remembers where they live.
One of his friends, who I’ve mentioned before is Mrs. Whinnem. We stop at her house every time we find her outside. She is one of Sampson’s favorites, and he will stop at least three times checking for her, if she’s not out.
That’s three times in one direction, and three times in the other.
Friday, it was a warm day, and on Sampson’s second pass, I’m not sure if he was hot, or he thought he’d simply pull up a spot of grass and wait for Mrs. Whinnem, but just after we passed her driveway, he plopped down in the grass.
And I laughed and laughed, because who knows what goes on in that handsome head of his?
