A Furry Visitor

For the next two weeks Jon and I
get to hang out with this guy:

Sampson
Isn't that just the cutest face you've ever seen!!

Our friends left yesterday and returned to the states for a visit (jealous), so they asked if we'd watch Sampson. Of course, I gladly agreed! He's the easiest dog to take care of and the most chill Golden Retriever I've been around. It's nice to have him around. He gives sweet kisses and loves to be scratched on his back. It's so funny, Sampson and I have this ritual, ever time I see him he runs between my legs so that I will scratch his back and little hiney. It's so cute.

Last night after Jon came home from work we took Sampson for a walk in the park. He LOVES the park and the streams so he can jump into them. We played catch with him for a while but were told by some mean German "park guard" to put his leash back on! Other than that, he had a great time and was happy as a lark getting to play outside.



After we got home he was all tuckered out:


The night went pretty well. Every time I heard him move I woke up to check on him. He probably thought I was a nut case always checking on him.

That's the excitement in our lives right now ;)
And today is Friday! I always look forward to the weekend!!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I happened upon your blog because I have golden retriever as a google alert. When I saw your blog I was surprised to see that your name is "Barrett" That is my maiden name and I am from Georgia! Wonder if Jon and I are long lost cousins?
Anyway, Sampson is a doll! I have a golden, Chipper, and you are right, they are very "chill"
