Hello, my name is Sampson and I am a most adorable and lovable mini Dachshund.  I have two live-in staff that serve me quite well.  Their names are Ken and Lauren.  You will probably see them in some of the pictures and videos on this site. I like to refer to them as ‘my people’.

At least one of them is always at my ‘beck and call’ 24/7 should there be anything I desire.  They keep me properly fed and clothed, why, we even play games together.  That’s how much I adore them.  The feelings are generously reciprocated.  I think I’ll keep them!

I was born July 4th, 2009 in Utah actually, but now I reside in the California Bay Area.  I love the weather here.  For many months out of the year, I can lounge in the back yard and work on my tan. I have a lovely chaise lounge my people have provided right by the pool. Personally, I don’t see what all the fuss is about with this whole ‘swimming’ thing.

For that matter, I don’t see what the big deal is with these mani-pedis either.  But the one that calls herself my ‘mommy’ seems to think I need them.  I love to snuggle with her and smother her with kisses because she is so thoughtful.  She bought me a very warm winter coat and a raincoat, so when I do have to go outside in the rain, I don’t get wet.

Then there is Ken, a.k.a. Pop Pops.  He doesn’t try to cut my nails or give me baths.  He leaves that for mommy. He doesn’t try to brush my teeth either.  Although I really don’t mind it when mommy brushes my teeth.  I’ve been told I have great teeth so I try to clean them myself after each meal. I can spend valuable nap time on his lap while he is on the computer.  If I had to say which one was my favorite, I think it might be him.

Keeping in line with the ‘reality’ genre, this website will document my adventures and thoughts. I love to talk and share my ideas.  I hope you enjoy them too!
