I know you follow Samuel on Instagram but I thought it would be also fun to send you a little update as he approaches his one year adoptaversary, also because he’s so darn cute!
Samuel has been the joy of my life for the last year I have had the privilege to spend with him!!! He’s literally a ball of love and I can’t tell you how many compliments I get on his temperament and demeanor. And people are mildly obsessed with him, haha. He loves people (men & women, often can’t wait to kiss them upon first meeting), he’s super good with kids of all sizes, and he loves other dogs! He loves playing with other dogs and exhibits curiosity and confidence. It’s really fun taking him on walks and to the beach and to the park, etc. He already has so many buddies he hangs with regularly.
He’s also incredibly adventurous. I’m very outdoorsy and I’ve been impressed by his stamina and his exploratory nature! He’s up for anything and has lots of energy. He was very easy to potty train and he even has a little bell by the front door that he rings when he has to go if I’m off schedule for one of his walks.
He’s incredibly smart and sweet and loves to snuggle on the couch when we’re reading or watching TV. One of my favorite things about him was how early he would get me up for our morning walks. I thought when I got a dog it would give me less time, but Samuel has given me more time and I love how he keeps me outdoors consistently. Of course now that he’s older, he likes to sleep in more.
Added bonus — this little guy is the best airplane traveler Southwest Airlines has ever seen, haha. He loves snuggling in his airline carrier under the seat and doesn’t make a peep until we get all the way to our next destination. He also loves his crate and is crate-trained!
My family and I really couldn’t have gotten luckier and I credit all the training and socialization and adventures you and your family took him on before we got him. He is now just about 1 year and 3 months, 11.5 lbs, and he’s literally the best pup ever. Thanks so much for raising such a beautiful creature and for continuing to take an interest in him! 🙂 We send our love to you and your husband and to Reba & Dickens!
