TO ANSWER A FEW OF THE QUESTIONS YOU ASK WHEN I'M OUT AND ABOUT... What's his name? First off, I'm a she, not a he. My full name is Samara (which means protected by God) I answer to lots of other things too, including: Sam, Sam Sam, Sami, Bunny, Buglette, Little bug, Cutie and a Beauty, Gorgeous, and even Gorgee Snorge... "What kind of dog is he..." Again, just 'cause I don't wear a pink collar, I'm a she, not a he. My trainer, Els, describes me as "a real lady, but with attitude" - and I'm proud of it. I'm a Spoodle (spaniel/poodle cross) with just a hint of Bichon Frise (not a dachsund mix, as some of you have suggested.) And yes, my legs ARE short. But I'm fast! "How old is he?" She... I'm five, but because I'm so little, people think I'm still a puppy. That means I can get away with lots of stuff - like licking peoples' faces all over (my dad taught me to do that), eating Kleenex and jumping up on the bed when no one is watching... don't tell Els.
