Indi’s roommate Sam

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Sam’s head stuck in the lid of the bathroom trash can.
Notice that his tail is blurry because it is wagging so hard.

If you look up “Black Lab” in Wikipedia (or the encyclopedia if you
are keeping it old school), you would see a photo of Sam with the
caption, “Happy-go-lucky dog loves food, tennis balls, sleeping on the
couch, treats, bones, snacks, and stealing food off the kitchen
counter.” Sam’s motto is “Don’t mind if I do!” His favorite
past time is scrounging for snacks and he can catch a treat flying
through the air from 5 feet away. He is eager to love and his wagging
tail can be heard from every room in the house.

Last night Indi was up whining every two hours. Whether in pain or
just craving company, she had me feeling like there was a new born
baby in the room. Brad and I slept on the floor to comfort her and Sam
helped himself to my queen size bed. Hey, no one else was using it.
Why not.

    wow sam, you look alot like me!! geesh! sounds like indi is doing much better – no doubt due to your excellent ‘male nurse’ skills. it’s so good to have a great family you can depend on!!! treats for everyone!!


  2. I’m just getting caught up on your blog. First of all, Indie is just beautiful! Love her face and the pictures. My Mackenzie is 80 lbs and I thought that was a lot of weight :). Sounds like Indie’s doing much better – as I’m sure you’ve read, these first couple of weeks can be very difficult! So you have our utmost support. And this little Sam guy is one adorable puppy. He does look like Gayle – so cute! Enjoy reading your posts.
    Here’s keeping our paws crossed that Indie has a smooth and speedy recovery!

    Fortis and Sam have a lot in common except for four legs and a tail! Fortis is a food hound for sure. My wife and I have spent many nights on the floor with Fortis. In fact If I had to guess, out of the 8 months since his diagnosis, I have spent at least 5 of them either on the floor or couch. I’m currently there now. It actually feels strange to sleep in a bed.
    I hope Indi’s pain is gone by now. Fortis had a period of about two days where he was in a lot of pain. He would yelp repeatedly which until this point I had never heard him do. It was determined not to be phantom pain but instead some internal sutures had torn……..scared the bloody fire out of me. Sending positive thoughts your way.
