Dale's little buddy, Sammy was killed on Saturday :( They live on a farm and had just walked up to the end of the driveway to get the mail. For some strange reason Sammy did not follow Dale back right away. He just kind of meandered and Dale called for him to 'come!' and he was on his way and then he darted off towards the road. This little 12 lb. min pin felt the need to chase an Avalanche pickup pulling a boat! Poor Sammy didn't know what hit him. What makes me SO angry is the driver did not slow down or stop, but actually increased his speed to get the heck out of there! Dork!
I'm so sad about this. Dale and I used to tease each other about who had the smarter, prettier, most wonderful dog. I, of course, would tell him German Shepherds are REAL dogs and he would tell me daily about Sammy's fur 'like velvet!'
It was a constant, fun ribbing between the two of us.
Sammy loved to lift his leg and pee on my car tires. Drove me crazy. I'd see him go near my car and I'd say, 'Sammy! Don't you dare!' and he's stop and act like he was respecting my wishes. Then he'd sneak off around the other side of the car for a bit. Suddenly he'd appear again and spin out his little back legs like he was so proud and 'all done' with his duty. I'd go check and sure enough.......wet tire! Grrrrrrrr
Honestly, I'd gladly let him pee on my tires if he were only here now. Poor little guy. R.I.P. Sweet Sam♥
On a brighter note, I had a great Etsy weekend! I sold 5 items! I've got this wonderful customer who keeps coming back. I love her!♥
And.....remember sledge hammer week? Well I finally got my little patio somewhat together. I'm hoping to decorate it better next summer since this summer is coming to an end shortly. But it looks so much better than what it did look like! I might put up a little privacy panel and it will be my little cozy haven! Yeah!!
Saturday I went with a friend to see Julie & Julia. I'm not sure I can recommend it or not. It was 'ok' but I think I was expecting more comedy? Still, it was cute.
I'm SO behind on checking your blogs! Our company (yearly) audit is coming to an end so I'm hoping to get caught up here soon!
Miss you all,
