Samson says…

It’s been a while since Nana has allowed me to share my thoughts, but she said life is a bit difficult for some of you humans these days and that maybe hearing from me would brighten your day a little bit. But you could also just go for a walk.  A walk always brightens my day (unless it is raining!)

There are a lot of squirrels here, and there is one that likes to tease me. I don’t know why it keeps teasing me, so I bark at it and I keep trying to catch it, but it runs up the tree too quickly. My rope needs to be just a little longer so I can have a better chance of catching that rascal. But fat chance of that ever happening! Nana just doesn’t get it. For some reason she just gets annoyed when I bark and chase the squirrel and if I do it too much, she makes me stay inside the camper. Sometimes Nana is just no fun!

My buddy, Mike, left!! How could he do that to me?! I walked Nana to their campsite but there was nothing there but the lingering scent of my friends. I’m not really missing Bubba, Bentley, and Zippy too much, because all those dogs want is for Nana to love on them – and I really don’t like to share! Cathy must miss being able to pet me, because I sure miss her.  She’s a nice lady who always makes sure I get a bowl of water and maybe a carrot or two when I visit.

Butch and Shirley took Miss Kitty home. And Tom and Laura took Max and Lola back home too.  I sure don’t miss seeing those darn cats walking around outside! Audrey stays inside, thank heavens. A dog needs a cat free zone and I thought that just meant being outside.  Sadly, I was wrong – until now! Now if only all the other dogs would leave too….. except for my friends, Buddy and Jake. They are fun to play with sometimes.

Nana and Papa have been talking a lot about Ken these past few days. He went somewhere and that made them sad. Ken must have been a special man if Nana and Papa feel so sad because he went somewhere. I don’t like it when they are sad, so I try to get in Nana’s lap and cuddle so she is happy again. Papa thinks I’m a silly dog when I do that, but it sure seems to help.

I hope you all have a cuddly lapdog like me to keep you happy too.

Dave and I have been living full time in our Grand Design Reflection 27RL since December 3, 2017. We share our space with our cat, Audrey, and grand dog, Samson. UPDATE: So much has changed in our lives during Autumn 2020! Samson is very happy to be back living with Paul, Audrey crossed the Rainbow Bridge, and we moved into an apartment. We plan to use the camper as a summer getaway going forward. . . no more traveling (with the camper, anyway!) As always, looking forward to new adventures!

  1. Oh Samson! It did a world of good to hear from you. My human (Mary) was kind of sad today & I think you cheered her up. She’s been stressed not being able to go visit her kids and to make matters worse, she’s had some unwanted visitors—-Mice! She says she won’t be referring to the Easter Bunny anymore…just Easter Mice. Last night she went to sleep to the sound of the trap snapping & a mouse flopping around in the lower drawer in the stove. That crazy guy flopped around all night and all morning. Lucky Mary is friends with the Amish- she got a guy & his son to remove the live one ( his front foot was in the trap) and his dead buddy from the other trap. That’s the downside to rural life. Who knows? Maybe she’ll get a cat one day, too. Not sure how I feel about that.
    Anyway, thanks again for letting us hear from you. Sad to hear about Mr Ken.
    Your friend, Grace
