Note from Tonya

Sorry I haven't posted since last week (it may have even been two weeks ago), Sammy has been sick, and he was at the vet friday and saturday last week, so I haven't really had time to make a new post or take some proper pictures of him. We think he okay now, but for a while there we were really worried. On monday last week, he began to act sick, he didn't have a lot of energy, wasn't eating a lot and seemed to be more clingy to us than normal.

Then on tuesday, wednesday, and thursday he began to randomly have these attacks where he would whine really loud, stand frozen like a statue and look around widely for minutes at time, with no way of stopping or comforting him. Perhaps whining isn't even the right word, it was more of a horrible, painful, and very loud screech; it was a sound that I had never heard him make before, and needless to say, with these attacks coming at random times during the day, it freaked me out.

So on friday we took him to the vet, and he even started whining in the car, but once we got to the vet he would not whine at all, and seemed to be completely normal (which made us look like we were the crazy owners that were imagining things). The vet took some x-rays and kept him until saturday, but found nothing, and he continued to act normal (again making us look pretty stupid ;)). So the vet sent Sammy home with some meds and he has been doing good ever since. But we are still watching him closely, to make sure he continues to get better.

I will try to get a proper post up this week, thanks for your patience!

Nothin New

Hi everyone. Not much has been going on lately, things have been pretty low key since after the holidays. So Tonya doesn't really have a lot of new pictures to share, as I haven't really been doing anything interesting. But Tonya thought it was about time for a new post anyway. But she should be posting a new post pretty soon with all sorts of pictures, because Tonya is getting a new camera this weekend so she will probably go crazy taking pictures of me.
Oh, and thank you to Lexi and Jasper the Great Danes for giving me the Liebster Blog Award! I have put a picture of it on the side of the blog with my other two awards.

Christmas presents

I hope everyone has had a good holiday season! I know I have! I wanted to look my very best for christmas, so I got a haircut before christmas and they even put on a christmas tree bandana on me! These bandanas usually never last very long because I usually notice that there is this big monster around my neck pretty quick after it gets put on me. And once I know it's there, I won't leave it alone untill I get it off and chew it up! But this time I tried to be a good boy (I didn't want to be naughty so close to christmas!) and I left it alone until the day after christmas, but then I had had enough, and saw to it that it came off!
Tonya says I must have been an extra good boy this year because I got a lot of presents in my stocking this year! I was so excited when it was my turn to see my presents! Tonya doesn't wrap them though, because I have just never gotten the hang of unwrapping presents, I just get really frustrated that there is wrapping paper in the way of my gift that people expect me to get off. I mean how am I supposed to do that? So I just pick my presents out of my stocking one by one, and play with all of them!

This year I got a new dinosaur chew toy that I named Rex, a very colorful blanket that I can carry with me around the house (so I no longer feel the need to steal towels from around the house to carry with me), I also got a big packet of hard treats that Tonya says will clean my teeth for me when I chew on them. So I think I got some pretty good presents this year!

Here are some pictures of me with my presents:

I hope all of you have had a great time this holiday season! (And I hope you all have a fun new years!)

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while! Tonya has been really busy with her schoolwork, and just couldnt seem to find the time to help me with my blog. Anyway, here are some pictures of what I have been doing (which is pretty much just sleeping):
