Fourteen years ago today, a small apricot-colored curly, bundle of knuckleheaded-ness entered the world. Who knew at the time this silly boy would bring so much joy to everyone whose path crossed his way? Elsa here. Although he wouldn’t arrive at the Ranch until he was two, that photo was one of the earliest images showing his sweetness.
While he may not be quite the same pogo-stick he was when he joined mom, the boy’s still got game and continues to walk anywhere from 2-4 miles a day. Please join me in wishing him many happy returns. Come back tomorrow to see the
blackmail photos highlights from his party. Happy birthday, bro! Mom and I love ya, even if you’re a goofball.
Live, love, bark! 🐾

Lulu: “Happy belated birthday, Sam! Many happy returns!”
Thank you! We love celebrating all month long. And thank you for swinging by our Ranch; we 💖 visitors.
Happy birthday from Charlie and Hope
Many thanks, Charlie and Hope. I had a really wagnificent time!
Happy Birthday Sam!!
Seeing these family members, I need to take part in a paw sitivly furry warm chair. With my human eating chicken I always have my muzzle on the arm of her chair. Barking is permitted since I want a trip to the ice cream drive thru. Till later, cat chasing is permitted her.
Sounds like you REALLY know how to paw-ty!
Happy Birthday, Sam!
Thanks, Miss Molly!
Sorry I’m late Sam. Hope you had a very Happy Birthday Sam. ☀️🥰
It’s never to late for celebrating. I plan to do so all month long! ☺️
Oh my goodness! I had to scroll for MILES AND MILES to wish you a happy birthday, Sam!
So sorry I am late! Hope you had a fantabulous day!
Thank you! Mom says it’s never too late to celebrate good times and I think so too.
Could not agree more! Matter of fact. Guess what? It is MY birthday today – oh, by the way, this is Zeke talking…
I am TEN YEARS OLD TODAY!
Woof, woof, handsome fella! That’s Happy Birthday in dog BTW. Hope you have a wagnificant day.
Why thank you. I think Mom has just decided to write me a birthday post because yanno what? She JUST realised it is my birthday…. Hmmph!
Your mom has been a busy beaver with her work. No doubt she’ll make it a memorable day and maybe even take you for an extra fun filled walk.
I sure hope so. The sun is shining and I would hate for her to ignore the call of nature. Even if she brings her stupid camera with her. Mind you, while she is taking pictures, she lets me roam around at will depending on where we go…
See…there are “wagnificent pawsibilities” on your horizon. And here are some special treats, even if they’re digital 🦴🦴🦴
Thank you, Sam. How cool is it that our birthdays are so close!
We’re rocking Libra guys!

Blondes are fortunate the grays don’t show up on our furs. I only have one tiny little soul patch on my chin. Hee hee. I think being a knucklehead makes you younger, sweet Ruby. At least it works for me. 🥰
Sam. Benji and I wish you a very Happy Birthday and hope you have a great day with lots of pressies.
Thank you so much. It’s been a great day filled with lots of ear rubs, treats and great fun!

Every day should be Sam’s birthday!
In many ways, it is. 🎉🎊🎈🎉
Thanks ES. It was a great day for pawty-ing.
Happy Birthday Sam. You handsome lovable sweetie! Enjoy your special treats that I am sure your wonderful Mom will give you!
Why thank you. It’s been a great day of celebration. You don’t turn 14 every day! 😍
You are very welcome and that is very true. Oh to be 14 again! …. LOL! But No. I wouldn’t want those teen years back! 🙂
That’s what mom said! 😆
Your Mom is smart!
Not sure about that. Well let it be our secret. 🤣
Hahaha! Okay, lips are sealed. 😄
Most appreciated! She’s better off left in the dark anyway. 😉
You are sneaky! 😉
Mom says I’m a knucklehead but we both know different, don’t we? 😁
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM!!!
Tail wagging thanks!! (( ))
Sam, did you know our Mom had a Sammy? When he was in trouble he was Samuel. Actually, Samuel Joseph. She even named her boat The Sammy Joe. Anyhow, Sams are special, and you continue to prove that right. Happy Birthday and we love you, Sam Sam. XOX Lucy, Xena and Amy
Yes, Sam’s are quite special. ❤️
Happy Barkday, Sam!
Hope you didn’t eat all those dental chews at once. 😉 I know you are a dog of great restraint.

Happy birthday Sam
Thanks for the birthday wishes and for swinging by the Ranch. We 💙 visitors as much as birthdays!
Happy Birthday, Sam! You look great! That’s what people always say to old dogs like you and me. In your case at least, you DO look wonderful and we send our fondest wishes for many more years taunting your sister and eating your Mom’s slippers.❤❤
Thanks for the well wishes. Sam left the slippers for Elsa. Sam only seemed to like expensive daytime organizers and wallets through the years. 😆
Ah yes, I recall an unfortunate wallet episode. 🙂
More than one actually 😬
Happy Birthday, S. 14 looks GREAT on you! Hope you’re having a wonderful day! I can’t wait to see the party pics! Have fun! xoxo
Love and licks,
He seems to wear 14 pretty well, all things considered. Wish I looked that good!
Happy birthday, Sam! Hope you have a great day! You sure were a curly little bundle, weren’t you?
Was then, still is now. LOL
And he’s still as goofy as the day I brought him home from the Eastern plains. 🥰
Happy, happy Birthday to sweet Sam! Enjoy the celebration!! ♥
With this dog, every day is a celebration. He brings me so much joy, it’s hard not to cheer for him!
Happy birthday, goofballs are so easy to love.
Indeed they are!
Happy Birthday, Sam!!

Sam, I hope you have indicated which treats you would like for your birthday…and the quantity.
I told mom, “I’d take at least one of everything.” That should fill me up rather nicely.
Happy birthday, Sam!
Vielen dank, Herr Pit❣️

Sam has been around that long? Are you certain that he’s not part parrot?
I can only hope he lives as long as a parrot. 💖
What a good boy! Look at him waiting so patiently…
He knows there’s a nice payoff when he wait. 😉
Happy Birthday Sammy! The Golden K girls are sending you best wishes for a fun filled day and celebration.

Thanks for the birthday wishes. Having this dog has been one of the most fun adventures ever. He is the definition of joy.
Happy Birthday Sam! We love you! 🙂
🥰 He’s feeling the love and sends it right back via tail wag. xo
Happy birthday, Sam. I’m hoping he gets a lot of his favorite treats.
There in the works right now. 😋
Baking as of this moment! 😊

If only we could make a sniff and smell patch here. 😊
I know right?
