Outdoors anyone? Meet Sampson…
Sampson is the happiest dog in the world when he is outside. He LOVES the outdoors. Whether it's camping, taking long walks on the beach, going on hikes, or just lounging in the sun in the backyard you can't stop his tail from wagging. Our family frequents a camp site that is near a small creek. Sampson can spend hours wading out into the creek and sticking his head in the water to grab the tiniest sticks to take back to shore and chew on. He'll munch on a stick for a few minutes and then he's back in the water looking for another. At the end of his stick finding he'll have a somewhat large pile of tiny sticks on the side of the creek. He also loves going on boat rides and having his ears blowing in the wind. In the summer in Seattle Sampson will spend hours outside and couldn't be happier...

In Memory of Mr. Lou Sears
In Memory of Mr. Lou Sears. December 16, 1929 - March 29, 2013
My dad had a great love for all animals and shared his life with many cats and dogs throughout the years. In his last few years, he and mom lived with kitty Tabitha but decided they were at a point in their lives that they shouldn't take on another dog. Almost 7 years ago dad went along with me to pick up my 10 week old beagle puppy Maggie. For the next 6 months, dad came to my house every day while our family was at work. At first he visited three times daily...letting Maggie out, playing with her, napping on the couch with her. There was probably not a week in the last seven years that dad didn't come to see Maggie. The last few months when he couldn't drive he would tell mom that he needed her to drive him to visit Maggie. In November when dad was in a nursing home recuperating from a stroke, he asked to see Maggie. Maggie picked up dad's scent in the hall where dad had been walking as part of his therapy; she tracked dad to his room, pulling me along behind and jumped up on the bed. They visited for an hour with Maggie mostly on top of dad and dad insisting that I not take her down.
Dad was always interested in Seattle Beagle Rescue, asking about the stories behind our beagles and celebrating each adoption as he saw the beagle disappear from the website. We are thankful to family and friends who honor dad's life with their donation to Seattle Beagle Rescue. He would be so pleased.
Maggie and I love you very much dad.
