    I like this Sam dog, very much! Most dogs don’t seem to like me, very much. But Sam appears (as per sketch and earlier descriptions) to be a very nice dog…as most are quickly interested in devouring me! I’ve always had this problem (as if I were something on their menu), therefore have always been fearful of the Canine family, for the most part! I think I’d feel most comfortable with Sam, he’s welcome to stare at me anytime!!
    Nicely done!

    Sam reminds me of Eddie on the Frasier show. He would just sit and stare at Frasier.

    That must be rather unnerving to say the least…

    I feel your pain. I’ll be dogsitting my parents dog for two weeks, starting Saturday. It’s a lot of pressure. My husband doesn’t want to ever have a pet and the kids are dying for one. I hope the dog doesn’t blow it for them forever.

    Debbie: Sorry to hear you’ve not had good experiences with dogs. I think you would indeed like Sam. She’s a good girl, she is. Not cuddly or dog-like in that way, but friendly and sweet. No need to fear Sam! So how’re things going…?

    Terry: You’re right to spot the Jack Russell in her, Terry! Her mother was one. Her father…a mongrel, I think. Yeah, I think dogs have mastered the art of staring!

    Jazz: At times, yeah! I’ll be working and I get this sense that someone’s standing behind me…looking at me. She can do this for endless minutes. If I don’t respond, she will make grumbling noises. All that in and of itself is okay, it’s just that you can’t figure out what she wants, especially after you’ve done all the things you think she might be asking for (pee, poo. eat, snack, etc.). What do you want, silly dog!?! And you know what? She’s gone now and…I miss her. I guess it’s like any relationship: the other can just get on your nerves.

    Becky: Aren’t you sweet! Thank you! I so appreciate your honoring me by picking me and my blog for the blog award! I’m way behind in participating in these things so not sure what I’m going to do! When work slows down, maybe I can shmoosh them all together in some way and pick blogs to mention.

    Laura: Two weeks is a long time. I had Sam for a week and 1/2 and that was more than enough. Good luck with your dog-sitting stint, Laura. I do hope it goes well. : )
