Happy Monday peeps and pets. The big day is almost here…are you ready? Today is Monday and we always like to start the week out with a smile.
You may recall that last week Sam worked at hospital and West Pines bringing relief and smiles to staff and patients alike. We’ll share some details of a couple of those visits soon.
As we were leaving West Pines, for some odd reason, Sam was mesmerized by the fish tank in the lobby. In the past he’s never paid any attention to it, we’ve walked past it a jillion times. Yet, this time he just couldn’t stop watching one of the large angelfish and seemed to be captivated by this swimming creature following his every turn, from one side of the tank to the other.
Sam seemed to be wondering if Santa visits those fish. The funny thing is that fish followed him as much as Sam followed the fish. Maybe he needed some pet therapy too?
Here’s hoping the smiles are plentiful this week and you are filled with the love, joy and peace of the season. We will be taking a few days off from posting and wish you all Happy “Howlidays!”
Live, love, bark! 🐾

Sam 🐾💜🐾 Happy Howlidays & Happy New Year!🎉🕊 💜nose nudges💜
Thanks, Olivia. We hope you all have a spectacular 2020!
Merry Christmas and we hope you had the best of days.
Thanks. They were totally pawsome!
I love angel fish! Thanks for reminding me of their beauty.
It was our pleasure! Hope you had a lovely Christmas.
It looks as if Sam and the fish were communicating….maybe discussing whether Santa visits fish too?? 🙂
Merry Christmas!! xxoo
Or how to fry up! 🤣
My cats would probably be mesmerized by the fish as well, though maybe not for the same reason as Sam….
Ha! Trust me he enjoys fish for exactly the same reason as your cats do.
That is so cool about Sam and the angelfish! Merry Christmas to you!
It was very entertaining. Merry Christmas to you and the Labro-duo.
Happy holidays, dear da-Al!
Many thanks. Wishing you all the joy of the season.
Thank you so much!
Sounds like Sam made a friend. It will be interesting to see if the friendship holds until next visit. Merry Christmas!
Funny thing about that Knucklehead, he makes friends wherever he goes. ☺️
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all, too,
Friends come in all species and sizes. It’s funny that Sam’s never watched the fish before. Who knows what goes through their heads? Merry Christmas!
Especially in Sam’s case! Merry Christmas to you and kitties. 😻
Happy Holidays to you and yours too. ☃️🎄☃️
Right back atcha! 🎅🏻
What else is an angelfish to do at this time of year?
Such a wonderful pet providing pet therapy…for a pet :-).
He never stops providing therapy. To anyone! Merry Christmas 🎄🎅🏻
Wishing you all a beautiful Christmas!!
Thanks, Dakota. Happy Hanukkah to you, Cody and your mom and dad! 🕎
We have heard that fish are great therapy for peeps – maybe Sam is looking for a partner:_
Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber
Fish tanks are very relaxing to watch. Maybe Sam needed some therapy. ☺️
A partner or a snack, not sure which. The boy does enjoy a fish meal every once in a while. 🤣
🐬Peace on earth 🐬 Goodwill towards men🐬 and women 🐬 and every living thing.🐬
And especially pet therapy partners. 😉
That’s so sweet. Maybe they both needed a little pet therapy. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Therapy works in strange ways. Happy Howlidays to you and Tippy!
I don’t know. The whole story seemed kind of fishy to me.
It’s all done with smoke and mirrors. 🤪 Happy howlidays to you, the AJF and Max. 🎅🏼🎄
Right back at ya! Wishing all of you in Cool Land Colorado a howling good time!
What a sweet shot of dog and fish communing. Have a great Howloday. Did I spell that right?
Close enough. We hope yours is full of joy.
Good work, S. You are spreading smiles everywhere – even underwater! #happyfish
Love and licks and Merry Christmas,
He just can’t help himself when it comes to therapy work. 🙂 Fleas Navidog!
Now there’s a great ‘fish tale!’ 😉 Enjoy the holidays, y’all!
Bwahahaha! Good one!
Sam may need a fish. Happy Holidays, Monika.
He never struck me as the Nemo type. Before. Happy howlidays, John!
Hey Sam – it’s all OK. Nothing that a treat can’t solve.
He does like the taste of fish 🐠 LOL
It looks like someone wants a pet of their own.
So surprising since Sam avoid water at all costs! BOL He just can’t help but spread his therapy to all he encounters.
this is when we wish they could talk. Last week I had on the show Too Cute with baby animals, and for the first time ever Milo looked at the tv
Always makes me wonder what goes on in the grey space between the ears. 😍
That’s cute 🙂 Looking forward to hearing more about Sam’s adventures soon!
Thanks, We had some very touching moments; hopefully I can adequately describe them. Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas to you!!
What an interesting story, Sam has that special talent to understand humans without words, so now it seems that he is able communicate with the fish.
Merry Christmas to you all!
Kosmo and mom Kristiina
So bizarre since he avoids water more than anything else. Rauhallista joulua to you Kosmo and Kristiina. 🌲
Kiitos, you wrote in Finnish. 🌟
Happy New Year 2020!
😇To a fabulous 2020!
In the back of the picture was an old fashioned phone tethered to the wall with a curly cord. Flashback to my childhood.
It’s like something from Norman Rockwell back in that corner!
It was odd. Merry Christmas to you, Sam and Elsa!
But it took me back to calmer days. Merry Christmas to you and yours. 🎅🏻
What a great shot and who knows what attracted him this time…
With the attention span of a gnat, I was blown away by how long it captivated his interest. He never pays that much attention to anything for that long.
I absolutely love that shot of Sam.
Wishing you and the whole gang a very Merry Christmas, Monika. 🙂
My little Knucklehead sure enjoyed that fish tank. Who knew? We hope you and yours has a wonderful holiday.
Wishing all,of you at the ranch a blessed Christmas and prosperous new year. Seems as though a Golden Kali was on hiatus most of 2019. Hoping to post more in 2020. See you on the other side of the the decade.
We look forward to much more in the 20’s from the Golden K. Happy howlidays to you and those gorgeous girls.
Sam finally found something interesting in that fish tank. Awww a great shot.
Have a woof woof day, Sam. My best to your mom. ♥
Thanks; it really entertained him for a long time. He never ceases to entertain me and the staff at West Pines. Have a ‘wagnificent’ week.
Merry Christmas to you and Sam and Elsa! Have a extra jolly one! How cute that he was mesmerized by the fish, they can do that and Angelfish are so pretty! 🙂
It’s was like being at the dentist…without the drill. 😆 Have a wonderful holiday!
