Old Sam, looking dignified -- or annoyed

Sam was a bit annoyed with me for making him pose ... he's showing his 16 years. All that gray! And those awesome jowls! He can only hear a fraction of what he used to and his eyesight isn't so good anymore. Sometimes it's hard to wake him up -- he looks like he really loves those dreamtime adventures: running, barking, woofing, chasing .... he snores like an old pickup truck goin uphill but we're used to it now. Sam definitely loves life, in spite of all those things we might consider "problems of old age."

He is happy to be here each day.

My buddy.
