Sam Update

Alot of people have been asking about Sam and how he's/she's doing and when are we going to do another blog about him. So we thought we'd do an update about him/her today.

Okay, none of that is true. No one has been asking about Sam and how he's/she's doing and, to be honest, that's a little bit offensive to Sam. He/she has feelings too.

In spite of the lack of concern for him/her we are going ahead with this blog. His/her mom or dad could be reading this blog.

Sam is doing great. (If you aren't familiar with Sam you can go here or here.) He's/she's getting bigger and stronger. Not only does he/she get three square meals a day (okay it's actually one time a day of shrimp food), he/she also gets to go outside and play with his/her brother.

And sometimes he/she goes on walks. He/she usually goes by himself but sometimes he/she makes a new friend on his/her walks.

Last week he/she met up with this guy.
After looking at him I could understand if you might think it was something Carys made in her art class at school out of the bottoms of 2 liter soda bottles and that she wanted to come home and let Sam hang out with him but you would be wrong. He is a real frog and we did find him in our backyard when Sam was taking his/her daily stroll.

They started walking together but Sam's little steps couldn't keep up with his/her new friend. He/she tried so hard to keep up but he/she got tired really quickly. This new friend showed what true friendship is all about. Instead of leaving, he decided to give Sam a ride for the rest of the walk.

Yep, Sam's got a good life and he/she knows it.
