I was outside this snowy morning playing with my brother Titan and my sister Shy.  I started to wonder as I watched them do their thing, why doesn’t their legs come off?  Why doesn’t their butts blow up?  Is there something special about me?

I looked out past the fences to the other dogs in the neighborhood.  I have never compared myself to anyone before, it just never occurred to me.  But now that I see things that I see, why do I have to take so many more pills then my brother and sister?  Why does it take so much longer to get my dinner ready then anyone else’s?

It isn’t in my nature to judge anyone, we are all just dogs, we only smell a little differently from each other.  That being said, here is a picture of my brother and sister hanging out with me this morning.  Do you see what I see?

I see two dogs, (both adopted, not like me) both blondish red, both have all their legs, and neither one of their butts have exploded.  I think mom and I are going to have to have a talk.  Am I special?  My 6 month ampuversary is coming up, mom says, in just a couple of days.  Maybe, if I am special like I think maybe I am, something special will happen on that day… I don’t want anything else blowing up or falling off, hopefully something special in a good way. 

Maybe mom and I can check something off our bucket list!  A non flying slow bird perhaps?  I don’t know, what do you think?

    Sammy, Sammy, Sammy. Of COURSE you are special. Butt-exploding tripawdness aside, there’s absolutely no one else like you.

    “Why compare yourself with others? No one in the entire world can do a better job of being you than you.”

    How’s that for a quote?

    And here’s some things Riley and Catie would like to add to that bucket list, Sammy:

    Temperatures above -36C – from Riley and Catie who have been housebound all week

    Slow-moving rabbits – Riley and Catie, especially Riley

    🙂 In anticipation of your special day, we’ll be having pre-ampuversary treats this evening.

    My crew has been housebound too, but thank goodness it is warmer here than that!
    Good luck in keeping everyone entertained,
    your friend in Washington,
    Elizabeth and Sammy

    Sammy you know it! You are one of the most special dogs in the whole world! Us dogs that have had legs fall off and butts explode just have a little more insight into doglife than our brothers and sisters that lead ordinary lives. You just keep on being special! Cooper and I look forward to hearing all about your 6 month celebration, Coops 4 month is tomorrow!!

    Wishing you a warm sunbeam streaming in through the window onto a comfy bed where you can take an uninterupted afternoon nap.
    Treats all around!

    Sammy, Dude, only certain dogs can be Tripawds. I’ve only known our Tripawd friends for about 2 years. Without exception, every Tripawd I’ve met has an amazing love of life. They are also great teachers and friends. The Tripawds I’ve had the honor to hang with are also very brave and they have the ability to touch peoples hearts and souls just by being yourself.

    Sometimes I think Tripawds get kinda upset with their peeps because hard as we try, we just don’t get it. We try to live in the day, but we are not as wise as you so we have trouble with that one. We think to far ahead and we worry about making everything just right for you, instead of watching and listening to what you say to us.

    Yes Sammy, you are very special and we thank you for everything you do for us. Don’t give up on us, someday we’ll get it.

    That is very profound! Maybe mom will pick up on that eventually. I have been working hard on her… 🙂
