I was so excited to receive this picture on my Facebook page the other day! This is a picture of my dog Sampson's parents and sibling. Moose, on the left, recently celebrated a birthday. I met all three when I was trying to decide which puppy to take home. Layla is his mother on the right.

Harry, the puppy in the picture, and Jake (now Sampson) looked so much alike. Sampson seemed to be the first to choose his people, but it was a tough decision. Now I wish I would have taken them both home. Sampson is now about 8 months old, and about 3/4 of the size of his mother.

Here's a fairly current video of Sampson, showing off with his new squeaky toy. Hours of entertainment for just 94 cents. Enjoy!
