Sam's Dog Rules - No Look, No Talk, No Touch

Written by: Marj Mulholland

Sam says, “I  told you in July that on Wednesday 20 June I went into DOGGY HOSPITAL and had a really big Lymphoma (that means a fatty lump) removed from my side.  You won’t believe it, but Annie made me wear “human” t-shirts every day, so that I would not lick my wound.   I looked like a crazy dog, you would have laughed at me.     I have had seven weeks of just lying around and I got so bored, hardly any visitors and no children to pat me.   But now I am going on long walks again with Annie, it is so exciting to smell different things and meet other dogs and people on my walks.   Next week I am going to Torbay Kindergarten and am so looking forward to listening to Annie telling the children how to be safe around dogs, and when we go to Green Bay Primary I get to go over the Harbour Bridge, I can’t wait, it’s so high up and such a great view.  I would like to walk over the HarbourBridge but Annie says “dogs have to go in cars or trucks – I wonder if I can talk to the Mayor about that?  See you soon when I come to your school”. 

!WOOF!

ANNIE SAYS

This term we are going to Green Bay Primary School, which is over by Titirangi, and also we are going to see all the lovely kids and teachers at Torbay Kindergarten.   Sam is really looking forward to getting out meeting all the kids again, he was getting really bored sitting at home.   As well as the visits we have lined up, a new post is underway which should give all dog owners out there a few more tools to help keep their pack happy and healthy.

WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

This section of my newsletter usually has lots of names of schools and children that I have visited – but with having my operation, I have lain on my bed and in the sun and very gradually started going on walks again with Annie.    BOOOOORRRRRRING   !!!!!!!     This week has been getting better though as I’ve been getting some extra walks with my beagle friends from next door.   We do lots of sniffing.  They sniff A LOT!     I have been so bored laying on my bed that I wrote you all a poem:

When I was ill,

Annie made me lie still

Annie even gave me a pill…..Yuk!!!!!

But now I am better

I can write this newsletter

I’m coming to see you, don’t you forgetter!

Thanks for the doggy get well cards.

If you want me to come to your school contact Annie my Pack Leader.

See you next month….
