Why Sammy Jo is so special:

Sammy Jo lost her first owner to a heart attack and found herself in a shelter after 5 years in a loving home. She stole my heart the first time I saw her bright, blue eyes and her silly, floppy ears. She sat on my foot and rolled over for a belly rub, and we've been inseparable ever since. Sammy is playful and friendly, and she loves to cuddle in my lap after a long walk. She learned the rules of the house quickly (and that she can bend them quite a bit). I'm very happy to have her!

If your pet could talk, what would he or she tell us about you?:

I'm so glad that Mom brought me home from the shelter! She gives me lots of attention, and if she gets distracted by the TV or computer, I just stick my nose under her hand until she starts petting me again (she doesn't mind). We go for lots of long walks and play with a million toys, but I think my favorite is when she lets me take a nap on her lap on the couch after a long day of chasing tennis balls and running in the park. And if I'm cute enough, she may even give me a treat - aw, who am I kidding, she ALWAYS gives me a treat. I love my new home!
