Sam the Wonder Dog
a story from reader Frannorman Parker
Just visited your site-your pups are so beautiful. My last Boston passed
away years ago. His name was Sargent Sam, we called him Sam.
He saved family members lives on more than one occasion-once by
scratching me on the shoulder in my sleep, then running into my, then 1 yr old
daughters bedroom. She was having a convulsion and we were lucky Sam alerted
The second time was when we lived in an old house. The heater on
the side of the stove and had started to give out smoke in the wee hours of the
morning-again Sam rushed into our bedroom and scratched me on the shoulder
-this time I ran too because I knew someone or something was in danger.
Bostons are a remarkable breed, so intuitive, perhaps that is why we have had them in our family for ages.
I have pictures going all the way back to the early forties of Bostons my
family has had. You might say it was a family thing. My sister broke the
chain in the seventies when she got a basset hound-surprised the whole
Sam was 9 when he died of a stroke. He was the father of 4 litters (six pups each time) by Cinder our female.
He was the best dog ever. I miss him every day. I am now disabled and wish I could afford a Boston
but unfortunately on my limited income it is not possible. Thanks to you
and other folks online though I can visit my favorite babies anytime I want.
