Sam and I Vote for this post

Sorry you haven't heard from us for a week or so.
Trying to figure out how to use a website to store photos
and post them here.
I have a Flickr account but can't figure out how to use it and
I refuse to use Photobucket anymore as they make changes every
month and make it more and more confusing how to reach my album
and upload my photos.

Anyway, July 6th was precious Sam's Gotcha Day, I gave him a nice walk
but at 14 and 1/2 years old now, he likes a long walk only now and then.

Late June I took him to a park near here I took Iver too about 18 years ago
which I had forgot was a loooong trail with steep hills.
Anyway, the trail is a 2 mile long loop trail and Sam and I were proceeding
nicely when I decided maybe we should turn around but we had reached a
point that said it was 1.3 miles back to our car and .7 miles to continue on.
I decided to proceed onward entirely forgetting a long STEEP hill that
nearly killed me climbing it, my being way out of shape, but Sam climbed it
like the champion Westie he is.

By the time we returned to the car we had walked 2 miles and Sam was
still running every 100 feet or so, happily heading back home.

14 years old and still running as fast as he could UPHILL after 2 miles?
What a boy.

Anyway Until I am more in shape we won't tackle that kind of distance again
especially in this hot weather of July and August.

Well, we are doing well and will try photos somehow.
David and Sam

Glad to hear you guys are out for walkies. No hiking for us everything is too steep for me. We go to a big ball field and walk the perimeter. Can't wait for photos.

Love Riley and Allen

Does my heart good to hear that Sam still has so much energy at his age! Getting old is no fun for any of us--two or four legged! Enjoy your walks and pray for cooler weather.
Love, Deb, Emmie, and Angel Kelsie

Hi David, so glad that you are back, Sam is about the same age as Robin, she turned 14 in june, She still enjoys walking, as long as we go slow.  the problem is Presley like to walk a little faster, so I sometimes walk them separately.


Glad Sam is doing so will, it is amazing, even how older dogs can an so much energy when going for walks. Sometimes more than I have.


take care
