SU was in bed and Sam was lying next to him, they were sharing a pillow, facing eachother.
SU: "Hey, Sam, remember when you were a little bitty baby and I came to your house? You were so cute, and playing with your brothers and sisters. I was actually holding one of your brothers for a while. Do you remember that? Then you waddled by me. You were wagging your tail, but you had such a sad face. I liked your sad eyes, so I picked you up. You just laid in my arms and didn't do anything. Another man came up and asked if they could hold you, and I said no. I took you home and you just sat there. Then mommy came home, and you were so happy because she was so happy. Yes you were, you were so happy, and so were we. 'Cause you're the best boy in the world."
I love my boys. And I liked overhearing how Sam got picked because he was a Valentine's Day surprise for me.
Here's a pic of Sam and his sad eyes taken on 2/15/03, the day after SU brought him home.
