Yes, we're making progress. SU's visit this time is much better. Tolerating Sam much better, and has not fussed about the fact that Sam sleeps in the bedroom. THAT is shocking.
On Sat. SU was visiting our old neighbor next door. Two neighbors that I don't know well from across the street came over to say hello. They have two labs they were walking. While there, they told SU that I never paid any attention to Sam, just left him in the backyard all the time, and no wonder he was bored. WHERE they got their facts is a mystery to me!!!!!!!!!!!
SU told them that Sam was the most educated dog in our town, he went to class two nights a week, he went almost EVERYWHERE with me, and he was completely and totally spoiled! So I think they hushed.
Isn't it funny how people form an opinion of something they obviously know NOTHING about?
How cute of your SU, and how annoying of your crazy neighbors.

I'm so glad things are going well for your SU and Sam.
OMG are you serious?! How rude of them!!! You should go over and say something
I'm so glad your husband is coming around with Sam!!!! I knew he would
"Each is a creature of Earth and is entitled to reside on it with dignity"
I cannot believe those crazy neighbors! But I am kind of glad it happened and gave your hub the chance to speak on Sam's behalf! That was almost worth it!
I'm glad he's coming around. I can't beleive the nerve of some people. It's none of their business what you do with Sam how would they know that you were not in the yard with him playing fetch or something.
Yup...pretty soon he'll be refering to him as "my" dog Sam!
That makes me mad they would say such things about you and Sam. I'm glad DH said what he did... he loves you both very much.
