Monday Musings

img_4047Last Friday we spent nearly 87 hours at the hospital. Sam here. We had our regular gig with patients and staff but then mom decided to use shill me out to sell our 2017 Pet Therapy calendars. Hmpfh!

Well…it turns out I’m not just a pretty face, I’m actually a pretty good salesman too. And when people didn’t have the full price ($10), they ponied up with a donation of a few bucks for our program when they saw my adorable face. Woof, woof!

The main entrance of the hospital is where our table was set up and it was jammed packed with visitors and staff comings and goings. We received our first snow storm Thursday evening so Friday was more than cold and a definite shock to the system going from the lows 80’s to the 20’s. For a pampered pup freshly groomed dog like me, it was kind of a jolt to my missing fur. But I managed with the payoff being we have only 9 more calendars to sell. That’s it, just 9 more out of the hundreds ordered! Well that and all the a.t.t.e.n.t.i.o.n. helped me survived being the lobby sentinel. You guys all know how much I LOVE attention, but let me tell ya, this was beyond my wildest dreams. Young kids, moms, dads, grandpawrents…they all couldn’t seem to get enough of me. One of the staff guys from maintenance came by 3 times to say hi. He gave me great ear scratches. Color me one lucky pup-cycle but it was well worth my freezing. I visited with some folks who are regulars when we have floor duty and they thought I was beyond brave to venture outside and then come to the hospital. Ok, mom, stop rolling your eyes! Crystal from rehabilitative services does too enjoy seeing me even if you spent more time showing her photos of the baby sister who shall remain nameless then talking about me and how great I am at selling calendars!

Anyway, we saw more people on Friday than I ever have at the hospital before when you add up all the patients and healthcare workers both at the lobby and on the floors we visited. It’s no wonder I spent a good part of the rest of the weekend doing lots of this.

How’d you spend your weekend? Hope you’re staying warm my fur-iends!🐾

Live, love, bark! ❤

    In the words of Kermit the Frog – It’s not easy being green” It’s not easy being adorable, famous and humble so it’s not surprising at the end of the exhausting day, you need R & R. Benji has a lot of R & R but then looking after me and protecting me from a vicious WaWa is a full time occupation. Well done on the Calendar sales!

    Good job, Sam. I hope you got paid in treats for all your hard work. Tell your Mom you need more treats to fuel your body to stay warm. 🙂 Do you have a winter coat? Lexi had a warm hoodie, but she hated wearing it, even if it did keep her warm.
