Samson Says: Daddy is BACK!!

Samson Says:

Hello everyone, I'm a happy dog today. You know why? Because Daddy is here and it looks like he'll be around for a while. And I love my Daddy sooo much. Yes, I know, Mommy is OK, but Daddy, he's my man! 

You may remember that sad day back in October when I got left behind.

I was crying here when Daddy went back to Los Angeles and didn't take me with him.

I kept looking, and looking, hoping he would turn around, but he didn't.

But it didn't take long for my happiness to come back. Soon I was playing with the other dogs, enjoying being part of a pack. Here I am, playing with Angel and a sock.

When the old dogs got tired (you know old dogs need their rest) I busied myself with digging some big holes in the yard. 

Please note how nice and even my holes are, free of all dirt, just some old rocks left in there. No, I'm not trying to escape here, but Mommy asked if I was trying to get to China. She said she heard this when she was a kid (a very, very long time ago, if you ask me): "If you dig a big enough hole, you'll end up on the other side of the earth and that's where China is. So you better be careful, Samson," she said, "or you will fall through the hole and end up in China." A bunch of nonsense if you ask me.

But I've been a good dog too. Here I am, helping Mommy clean the house.

And when I get tired, I sleep peacefully in a heap with Angel and Soldier.

Here is some of the mess we are in today, but it's nothing compared to some places that Mommy will not le me show you. Angel is sniffing Daddy's stuff, there are boxes on the chest and everywhere, and Pippi Birdie is trying to not get scared by all the commotion.

Some very nice furniture we got from Daddy's good friend Mr. F. and had in the Los Angeles house is now here. This loveseat replaces the one that I chewed up and did some other damage to. And Daddy says, don't you dare touch those two nice blue chairs Mr. F. gave us. Those are for sitting in front of the fire – for Mommy and Daddy only.

That's all from me. I'm ready to play now!

Have a nice day everyone!

Mommy Says:

Thank you for your comments. I must confess that I am not as stressed about the move as I am about how tired and worn out my husband has become thanks to the stress he is under. He doesn't want me to talk about him much here, so that's all I will say about that. Money also figures in my brain, causing it to rattle frequently. Your comments and your caring helped me so much. Last year was tough for me, but friends helped so much. I am determined that this will be a better year though. It may even be the year where I learn to be a good cook and finally write that cookbook of my husband's good cooking that I began some 20 years ago. 

I'll borrow Samson's sign off: Have a nice day, everyone!


  1. Thankyou for a lovely read ~ I am glad you don't feel stressed out and I hope Hubby feels better and thanks Samson for your contribution to your Mums blog ~ Ally x

  2. Oh, Samson! I bet you're just jumping for joy to have BOTH of your parents in one place! Yippee!

    And Ms. Inger, things will settle down again, I hope. BOTH of you need to get some rest and relax a bit and let the dust settle again. :)

  3. So happy for you Samson....happy for mom too!

  4. Hi there, Samson!
    You take some pretty nice pictures there and your holes are awesome! We have a Jill to make our holes, she does pretty well at it, but not as neat as yours are. I love my Daddy too, he's my man, I can't wait for him to come home, when he's gone, I watch and watch out the window for him.
    Your Pal,

    Hi Inger,
    So much to do for the two of you, I imagine both of you are exhausted! Just take it one step (er.. box) at a time!
    Take it easy now!

  5. Well, Samson, I'm glad that you're a happy boy now that your Daddy is back. I'm sure he's glad to know that he will be seeing you every day, too. Now, you must be a very good boy and not cause any trouble, while your Mommy and Daddy get everything all settled in.

  6. Samson's "girlfriend" lives across the street. Susie is a love! When the weather is nice, I take her for walks in the nearby park.

    My hub doesn't respond to change very well. He kinda just zones out until all is back in order. Of course he works and does his share (more than his share), but it's not until he's back in his chair, clicker in hand that the smiles return. Men!

    Happy things are looking up. I think all of you need a lovely rest. Moving is such a challenge!

  7. Buck and Sioux agree -- mommy's okay -- but daddy's where it's at!

    Samson, you tell Angel and Soldier to be extra good while Daddy is stressed out. He'll be back to his old self soon. :)

  8. Samson you are a first rate digger of holes!

  9. nice post Samson...good to have everyone together again...hope all goes well for you all...

  10. Hi Samson, I know the excitement when 'the pack' is all back together!!

    Inger, I have been where you are and totally respect and understand what you're feeling and all you're going through--Take care!

  11. Hello Inger
    Nice tosee oyu visiting recently and for your comments.
    Funny how theres always one noisy one among the bunch - good to hear everyone is well and settled since the long journey
    Take care

  12. Glad that both of you will be able to settle in and take your time getting organized. Your dogs are so sweet.

  13. There now, all settled in and looking towards spring.
    Great dogs you have Inger.

  14. I think Samson would look very handsome in the blue chairs. The blue would set off his white coat. The left-behind hairs would break up the overall blueness and make the chairs look oh-so-much better!
    I hope that as the dust settles and everything has found a place that stress will be relieved and things will look better.

  15. Samson, I heard the same thing, that if you dig far enough you'll end up in China. Haha! So glad your Daddy is back home with you. Now let him rest and soon he'll be playing and giving you all kinds of attention.

  16. Samson, I know you are happy to have your family back together again. Be a good boy and no chewing.

  17. samson - he was worth the wait, huh? alright! tell mom all is well and to keep breathing and taking you all for those lovely walks.

  18. That was so funny! Hope you all can relax now & settle in. xxx

  19. Daddys are always the "fun" ones! I had to laugh about digging to china. I remember being told that as a kid & have used that phrase on my girls too!

  20. Hi Inger, if you get this twice I apologize--my internet is acting up this morning. I am playing catch up after a full week on the road with work. I miss my blog friends and today is my visit day. Samson, you are a dog after my own heart. Somehow it wouldn’t surprise me if you end up in China one day. I’m so glad your Daddy is home now and your are so happy. I just know that some things happen for a reason and I send you all my very best thoughts and prayers.
    Hugs from WV,

  21. Well, you know, Inger, "every dog has his day" and apparently Sampson has his! Apparently it was wonderful and he looks as if he was "talking" to his Dad. I can tell you just what he was saying..."Daddy, don't leave me again now that' you're back!"...:)JP

  22. Happy for you Samson! And for your mommy and daddy too! You pay attention, young man, mom and dad are going to be very busy for a while, until everything gets organised and in place. Be a good boy, you hear? I know you are... I am just saying it because people are like this.

    Inger, I understand your stress - more yet, when it is regarding the one we love. Things will work out well, you will see. I'm rooting and praying for you guys!!

  23. I enjoyed hearing from Samson today. He is adjusting so well. Sorry to hear your husband is so stressed. I will say a prayer for all of you that things will work out. I've just been through a very stressful time myself. Mom is now moved into nursing home and though we've finished the move out of her apartment, I now have so many of her things added to mine and they are sitting in the middle of the apartment. Much more to add to my decluttering project. Hope you have a lovely weekend :-)

  24. Oh,I know how you feel Samson! I am glad for your and your Mommy's part too!Inger I am sure you will be OK!

  25. Hope everythong settles out for you, I'm glad your husband is with you now.

  26. Samson, it's very nice that your Daddy is back, but don't forget how your Mommy took such good care of you! Now you take good care of her.

    Inger, I'm glad your family is together again.

  27. Hi Samson,
    Pleased to meet you :) I'm so happy for you now that your Daddy is home!

    You named the bird Pippi! That's so cute...

  28. Samson, you are just toooooo cute!

  29. Samson is so very handsome as are the others. You and your husband both need to take a little time to rest and relax. The unpacking can wait.


Thanks for leaving a comment.. ~~ Inger
