Samson Says: Hello everyone! I thought I better let you all know that mommy is OK. She's just fretting over this thing called a Living Trust she's trying to put together and this house in Los Angeles she has to deal with. She mutters that it's hard to ask for help, she has no kids, no blood relatives in this country, she says her friends are all too old to ask (except auntie Rachael), or dead; she cries, she frets, and she definitely forgets to take us for our walks. Finally, she decided what to do: See the attorney again next week and either do this thing or some other thing that's easier for her. And ask for help with the house too. Phew, sometimes it's hard living with mommy.....
Faith: Mommy also got in her head that she won't blog until she's seen all your latest blogs and made her commentary. What, Samson? Oh, her comments. So since that may take a long time, we thought we better let you know she's OK. Fretting, but OK.
On July 7th, Samson was 6 years old! Mommy sang Happy Birthday and Samson joined in. Between you and me, he sings better than her. We ate duck cookies and had a fine old time. Guess what his present was:
A trip to the spa where they blew out all his undercoat, gave him a bath, shaved his belly, and cut back the rest of his fur. Including the mess on his tail. Eat your heart out, Gracie Phillip!!! Just kidding, Samson loves you.
Samson Says: Yea, it took them two hours and twenty minutes. Mommy was exhausted from just watching. Afterwards, she said I was her Prince, I was that good and well-behaved. But did I get cookies, dog biscuits, chicken, people snacks......?
Faith: When mommy took me in the Jeep the next day, I thought I was getting a spa treatment too. After all, my second name is Stinkerbell and I roll in dirt and other unmentionables. But no, off to the vet I go to get my ears examined (ear infection), toenails trimmed, and GET THIS: a microchip stuck in my neck. Just in case you get lost, mommy said. Who me? Get lost? I guess she doesn't know, I'm herding them every time we go out. I keep both eyes on the two of them. I ALWAYS know my exact position and when mommy yells: GO HOUSE, I'm the first one home. And that's a fact. Humans.........
Other than that, it's rained a LOT! Yesterday, we had flash flood warnings on mommy's phone, but all we got was another little mudslide. Nothing big, you just need a Jeep to get around in the mess.
Mommy has lots of stuff to tell you about, so Samson and me will bug her to get back to blogging soon.
Have a nice day, everyone!
Samson & Faith
