All of our kids love Austin, but there is something special about a boy and his dog. I knew this because of seeing Zeb over the last twelve years with Austin, but it has definitely rubbed off on Sam. Austin is really old and had several experiences that should have killed her. All of that to say, she is rather low key now. Sam really really wants her to chase balls. Sometimes she will do it once, but she really just doesn't have the energy anymore to do it! Because of that, Sam has had to get creative! This morning he sat in my closet and rubbed on her for a long time, but these are some pictures I have caught lately.
A few weeks ago, I walked in to see Sam reading Austin a book. While I was going to get my camera, I missed the picture of her sitting there looking at the book!
Before school one morning, Austin was getting serenaded by Sam!
