the original pet
Meet "the original" pet Sammy Moses.
Sammy because it was cool at the time.
And Moses...well he's just the coolest Old Testament guy. He parted the sea for crying out loud! So that's where the middle name came from. Oh, and Gwyneth totally must me my BFF now because she took that name from my cat.
So, I went off to college, got married and although I do love that cat I realized I could not afford his lifestyle he'd grown accustomed to. Somewhere amongst that boy bought me pug and I went from dainty cat to obnoxiously noisy dog. I cried that day I realized that pug doesn't just SIT.
Sammy's as loyal and sweet as they come. He's 17 in cat years, lived in 3 different states with us and even stayed a night at The Palmer House in Chicago. He's been a busy feline and is now enjoying the retired life with my parent's who spoil him rotten.
So now when I combine the two pets I have my own real life Milo & Otis. Only if Otis would quit molesting Milo and somehow refrain from eating his food.
I'd love to hear about your childhood pets...do tell!
