Carson Daly did a really cute tribute to SAM last night with a fun clip from SAM's performance on his show a few months ago. I think he just became an uncle for the first time so congratulations "Uncle Carson"!
Mark and I spent a few hours today at the three animal shelters here in Santa Barbara. I am not anywhere near ready to take home a new baby but Mark is seriously considering a big dog for his ranch. Just this morning there were two coyotes in the front yard!... They were closer than I had ever seen them and TinkerBelle was outside...I nearly had a heart attack! SO...Mark is looking for a great, big dog to scare the coyotes away from the house. We keep two "barn" cats here which have turned into back porch cats and they need protection as well. We found a fabulous and very handsome boy named...appropriately..."Goliath". He is a bull-mastiff cross but so sweet and gentle. We introduced him to the three, little hairless SAM harem and Goliath was playful yet gentle...He actually jumped back in fear from PixieNoodle (weighs 6 pounds)...wonder how he would do with a coyote??? I realized while I was looking at all these lovable babies just how sad it is that people keep irresposibly breeding dogs. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE only breed if you are breeding show dogs..There are SOOOOOO many deserving doggies just waiting for a chance at love. I was taken in by a 9 year old guy...I have a thing about the old skiddly ones...I just want them to have some peace, warmth and love before they go...like SAM did.
We have to have a county inspector come out to OK the ranch for the adoption on Goliath and see how he is around cattle and horses, cats, and of course the hairless harem again. I will keep you posted.
PS. I was very happy to see so many people at the shelters cosidering adoption. Please consider it and please don't overlook those old guys!!!
