Looks like the vote is in and Blogville has spoken! Hi there, Sam here. Unlike a few incumbent candidates who lost primaries this week, I, on the other hand, managed to get my worthy message out directly to the people and they agreed with me.
Mom said the count wasn’t even close, you all thought I deserved treats. She’s been sighing a lot since counting up the votes but I’m as happy as a clam at hide tide. You guys rock! Thanks so much for believing in my
plea campaign for equality when it comes to the treat dispensing on our training sessions. When I excitedly told Elsa, she shrugged her shoulders and said. “pfft…I’m still mom’s favorite.” But you and I know better, don’t we?
Thank you for all the fur-bulous comments. I am basking in your
empathy good judgment. Let’s get the celebration started and quickly move on toward Friday. You with me? I promise not to upend anyone.
Live, love, bark! 🐾

Sure hope you got those treats you so richly deserve. Sorry we haven’t been around. Dakota was sick Wed, Thurs, Fri……and is getting better……LOOOONG story……..
Oh no!! We need to talk on the phone and catch up. Hope he’s feeling better. xo
Mee with you ALL THEE WAY Sam!!! Let thee treetss roll on! 😉
Meow, the result is right, treats for everybody!
Yes! Sam certainly is pleased with the outcome.
As long as Elsa gets her treaties too, I am all for it! (you knows us wacky gurls gotta stick togethers!!!!) Dude, you do that to your Moms too??? I run through her leggies at full speed while she scratches my back! It’s an Airedale thing, I thinks (I’ve seen other Airedales to it too…yes, we are a WEIRD breed…heheheee) Just don’t try and do it while the peeps are walking, they are VERY uncoordinated! BOL!
Good advice, Ruby. I definitely don’t need a heap of mom falling on me!
I’m not quite sure which side of the ballot my comment landed in, but I am glad you will get more treats, sweet Sam.
We recorded your vote just right. 😉
Glad I could help, Sam. I’m sure you mom really doesn’t mind giving you more treats. She just wants you to think it’s a big deal. 😉
3 bum swings! 3 more!
Demand a recount Else !!!
Elsa’s idea of a recount involves LOTS of begging and looking pitiful. I think Sam is secretly coaching her.
We are not at all surprised at how that vote ended up! 🙂
I think there may have been a paw on the scale of justice, but I’m not bummed one bit. 😆
Time to pay up Sam. I did my part.
The biscuit is in the mail. So to speak. 🍪
So we are going to tell Mom that we need to celebrate the decision too and get some treats:)
Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber
I’ll vote for that!
So you won the voting, more biscuits for all???
Equal treats for all!
Yup, more biscuits for all. Yay!
We missed the campaign and voting period due to being out of town but you definitely would have gotten ours. The ZAB team.
It’s been a win by a landslide! Hope all is well on your end.
Good for you Sam!
I know…I’m pretty happy about it. 😊
I didn’t win any primary-or even a secondary.
You always come in first with us.
Ducky is constantly underfoot when she wants something. But at least when I tell her to sit, she does so immediately, 99% of the time.
You need to count the late votes in your favor too.
Don’t encourage him!
congrats Sam!!! you are always a winner and a champion!!!
And I have the best ability to get under foot as anyone. Heh, heh.
I had to laugh at the photo. Every morning when I’m getting ready for work, I have to straddle a lab. LOL Yesterday, I was leaning into the sink with one foot up in the air to be able to manage. It can also be challenging getting dressed or using the toilet, as someone doesn’t seem to get how difficult it is to manage pants when there is a full-grown dog between your legs.
Go get some more treats.
We go through this every morning (and often throughout the day). It’s a real wonder he hasn’t seriously up-ended me yet. One day…I know my day is coming. LOL
Yay Sam! Congrats on your win. Just be careful and don’t knock your Mom off balance, or you may not get any treats. 🙂 You do have a real cute face though!
That cuteness is his trademark charm.
As the saying goes Sam, “Bark early and often”.
It seems to be an effective strategy-it works beautifully for Elsa. 😉
OMGosh I love that pic of my dog-nephew!
😍It always amazes me that he doesn’t kill me every day when he does stunts like that.
So direct democracy still works, eh?
At least around the Ranch. Refreshing in this day and age, isn’t it? 😁
I absolutely LOVE that picture! 🙂
He’s one lovable hound!
More treats!!!!! …. and nice blue toes.
Sam is very happy with the new policy.😁
