My name is Sammy-I also go by Sam. I am a 5 year old Border Collie mix. I was rescued from a dumpster in Yakima by an organization called Lil’ Waif Puppy Rescue.
I came to the rescue with something they called “failure to thrive”. They were really nice to me though; I got snuggled in a rocking chair a lot and got better. I used to stand in my water dish all the time and the nice lady who rescued me made sure I was adopted into a home that would involve water. Sure enough I got my own pond now and lots of friendly neighbor dogs that come over to play.
My favorite neighbor is a Chihuahua named Harley, he doesn’t seem to notice how much bigger I am than him. One of my other best friends is a Schnauzer named Zeke-I met him when we were both really young and I taught him to climb stairs. I also live with 3 cats-but they aren’t much fun to play with, in fact they are all kinda crabby.
I have a pretty easy life now-but had a really rough start. It was even a little rough when I got adopted to my forever home. My potty training coincided with my owners purchasing a Roomba. I tried really hard to hold it-but had an accident. My owners didn’t notice right away and one of them decided to start the Roomba and poop got dragged all over the house. They talk about it now like it’s a really funny story-but they didn’t think it was funny when it happened!
Most days I wake up around 7AM but I don’t generally get up to stretch until I hear someone getting into the shower. Then I stretch a bit and wonder on downstairs to see if any food magically appeared in my dish overnight. Then outside for a potty and squirrel check-I LOVE chasing the squirrels.
I am always excited to get in the car and go to work. I run into the warehouse and greet all the people there. I run up and down the aisles
of the warehouse until I find each and everyone. If anyone is missing I find it very worrisome. There are so many aisles full of things like HDMI cables and patch cables-I don’t know what they are used for but they must be pretty important ‘cause we have a lot of them. One day a long time ago when our warehouse was in Kent Washington, I caught a rat. I made company history!
Then I go up to the business office and have to greet everyone there. I get to go for a walk at lunch and then I mostly sleep until it’s time to go home. If you want to see a picture of me visit our facebook page group. Until next time happy tails to you.
