This is Sam. I got her as a pup in 2000.
She always came at a run if you called her. She would bounce like a puppy with excitement when she saw you and would nudge at your hand for a pat. She never jumped up and got you dirty.
She was great with the kids. They loved her and she let them pull her hair and pat her with a thump. Blue calls all dogs 'Sam' and tells them to 'sit' because of her.
She will be missed. A lot.
