Sam - The "Shop Dog"
There are a LOT of companies in our area who've been featuring dogs in their advertising. There are some awfully cute ones but Sam is OUR guy! And scroll down for some pics of Sam's Feline Friends!!!
Sam often insists on his own way but he's (almost) always very obedient. Sam came from the Bangor Humane Society, a local shelter that does extraordinary work, and he's never far from 'where the action is'. Sam comes to work every day (when you're part of the owner's family, you don't have much choice!) and he's always glad to see our staff. He 'makes the rounds' 3-4 times each day to collect a cookie and a pat from everyone.
Sam LOVES Brown!
Sam loves cookies. Sam loves people. Sam loves people who give him cookies. Sam also has very much 'taken' to those guys and gals who appear each day in a uniform that matches his 'clothing' pretty closely. (You can't see it from the pictures but Sam even has a bit of a white stripe in his too....)
Twice a day - morning and afternoon - a UPS driver stops by and Sam has ALL of them very well trained! He'll sit quietly while they deliver or sign the manifest for the pickup but then, he EXPECTS his treat. (And don't let those gloves fool you: it was a pretty chilly day when we took this picture - we're in Maine and it was February!). Dan and all the delivery folks at UPS think the world of Sam - and Sam sure does think the world of them!
Folks have asked about Sam's breed. Like a lot of shelter dogs, it's not quite certain. The one thing that everyone is sure of though: Sam's a REAL pet and he's as happy to be with us all as we are to have him.
Sam says "Order Today. It means more cookies for me!"
Sam is ALWAYS around - usually sleeping....
but he's always alert to the opportunity for a pat or a cookie!
And even though a LOT of our photos show Sam lying down,
it's because when he's in motion, the camera's just not fast enough!
While Sam is at one of our production facilities every day,
