Dog Days of Summer_Sampson Name: Leah and Aaron Sanchez- Dog's Name: Sampson (3 years old)We were able to take our sweet dog Sampson on two vacations this summer. Sampson at the Lake- At Possum Kingdom Lake, Sampson wore his life vest and loved laying on the tube, as long as the boat wasn';t moving. He loves being on the boat, but hates to get wet! Sampson at the Beach- On a trip to the beach town of Rockport, TX, we found a sign for "Stinky Beach" as we drove near the coastline. We use Stinky as a loving nickname for Sampson so it was the perfect photo spot! Thank you,Leah Sanchez

Fwd: IMG_0376 I have already sent this message once and what I left out and didn't want announced on television isthat Landry has terminal cancer. Don't know if you can tell from the photo but he now looks like acone head from Sat. night live. The vet says he is in minimal pain, but is on pain meds and should havebeen gone by this past Christmas. He is a different dos when they take him to the lake. He perks up, eatswell and wants to be in the water all the time. We were hoping this could air before he passes as it couldbe any day, we just don't know when. His Mom & Dad are hoping he will just go to sleep one night andnot wake up the net morning. They have no children. Just Landry and two kitties. Landry is my Grand dogThanks for any conideration.Lana PorterBegin forwarded message:From: Terry Porter

Freeway needs a bigger bowl This is our sweet Chocolate Lab Freeway. He will find anyway to beat the heat in the summer. He loves his kiddie pool, but today he decided that it just was a water bowl kind of day. I was filling up his bowl and he climbed inside. At first I thought it was to play in the water with his paws (his favorite past time), but he kept going in circles trying to figure out why he couldn't fit. Eventually Freeway made it work and posed for a photo. Tina Butler from Royse City, TX
