Samson's handler has trained a number of greyhounds and has been blessed and grateful for each one. Samson is teaching her to appreciate life and to look at everything in a positive way, even when storms are rough. She enjoys his company, his little funny faces (especially smushed up against the kennel bars) and the way he demands love and affection. She shares a quote she saw in a clothing catalog this past week that is printed on some of the items. It caught her eye and tugged at her heart: "It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them, and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are." In Samson, she has an easy and gentle dog, high energy at times, but easily calmed. He's coming along well with his training and knows sit, down, here, heel, shake, and bed. His pulling on leash has improved tremendously, helped with lots of practice with different team mates as well as daily exercise. He's a terrific K-9 and she prays he'll get adopted as he will be a wonderful holiday gift for a family.
