The true story of Sam, a rough collie, written from his perspective. A tribute to a true friend and a genuine family member.
Millions of families around the World believe that their pet, dog or cat is the most intelligent, beautiful and loyal friend that anyone could have. And they are absolutely right.
From the first moment that I met Sam, when he was just three weeks old, his personality and charm shone from his button eyes. Like many pet owners, we were convinced he understood every word we spoke and he actually could say one or two himself. Rather than tell his story from our perspective I have given him a voice and let him tell his own.
I can only imagine what he really thought about his two and four-legged friends but I do hope he loved us as much as we adored him and the time he spent with us shining brightly in our lives.
If only our pets could talk how much richer the world would be, and funnier.
Review: Sally had done a wonderful job of letting Sam tell his own story in the form of a memoir which provides a fresh perspective through the eyes of a dog. Sam takes us on the journey of his life with all its twists and turns from his own limited, but genuine understanding of things. I rated Sam: A Shaggy Dog Story, five stars for its very well written prose and because the photos here and there break up the story very nicely providing a comfortable and seamless flow. A truly delightful read for any dog lover.
