Sam-I-Am (The GR)

I am relieved he is not the Sam-I-Am that I know

This was on today's newspaper in Singapore. The wordings were


A pet golden retriever thought to have been lost for good was finally found – two years later and hundreds of miles away from home.

Owner Alice Baines and her family, who live in South Tampa, Florida, lost Sam-I-Am in 2004 when a hurricane destroyed their backyard fence.

No one knows how Sam turned up as a stray in Illinois last week. It was unlikely he walked because there was no damage to his paws.

A microchip inserted into the dog helped shelter workers identify him.

Last Thursday, a grateful Ms Baines flew to Chicago to take Sam home. When they were reunited, Sam stepped on her feet and then sat on them – just like always

That's a good ending! And we're glad, too, that it's not the Sam-I-Am that we know.

Thanks for the Christmas card, Scuba!

Wow... mum got a little choked up reading this. How fortunate this must be for the dog and the owner. I wonder if the same thing will ever happen to Beau and his mom...

Thanks for posting this Scuba.

Love nibbles,
