We adopted Samoa (now known as Sam) in March and he turned 1 in April. Every week we can see something more he’s picked up on. He’s very smart and the minute one of us puts our shoes on, he’s standing by the door, ready to join us. He absolutely LOVES the dog park here in West Bend and runs and plays for an hour at a time. We are 1 block from the walking/bike trail and he loves to go for long walks there too. Our son even took him to the Kettle Moraine for a 7 mile walk and he never even slowed down. He just had his first taste of the “lake life” this Labor Day weekend and had 4 other dogs to play with in the water. He slept ALL DAY on Tuesday!
As an added bonus, both my husband and myself have lost weight because of all our dog walking!
