My Samson is a bit standoffish for a boxer, possibly due to all that happened ot him before I adopted him..Yes, he loves Marq & I to death, but he will very easily just go off into another room, lay on his bed for a snooze, rather than be right with everyone....Well my sister was here last w/end and both Samson & Angel REALLY took to her. One nite Jill went back into her bedrom to read for a bit and found Samson laying at the foot of her bed. She grabs her book, starts to lay down, Samson starts getting up, she told him"it's ok, you dont' have to move". Not only did he move, I guess he felt that was an invitation cos he crawled up in her lap! My 90 lb standoffish cream puff. When Jill told me about that the next morning I almost cried, so did she when he layed on her  :lol: Yea, I know that would have been a great "Kodak" moment, but by the time she would have hollered fo rme, and I got the camera, Samson would have moved....

awwwwwwwwwwwww Samson thats wonderful isnt it? Isis had such a bad life and doesnt really take to many other people..she 'likes ' them but not too close..when my mom & dad came here in august which was their first time meeting her Isis didnt leave my moms side..everywhere she went..wed never seen her do that before except with me..

not trying to hijack just totally felt where you were coming from..its a heart warming feeling when they do that after a horrible past..

i feel like we have shown them love that they never knew existed...and they are learnng thats it ok to show it back to others besides us..we wont allow anyone to hurt them ever again...a true moment of joy with a rescued dog :D

just my take on it....maybe its just me lol

I totally agree with you Ky. I mean Samson doesn't even cuddle me that much, so for him to do that with my sister I thought was soo great. Oh yes, and Angel, well she liked snooping thru her suitcase  8O

Willow, that is so great to hear.  Wonderful job you have done taking care of him or he wouldn't have felt safe cudling with someone.

awww samson is such a cute pup and Travis tells me almost every day how much he wants you to give him samson. i think deep down he believes if he wishes hard enough youll give in. Samson just looks so gentleman like i love his face! it must have been so lovely to have him cuddle up!

Awww Samson is a softy. I loved the story, it's so great that he trusted her enough to cuddle up to her. So..when can I come to your house to see if he'll cuddle with me?  :p I just LOVE that boy.

Your sister must be a wonderful person to pick up on her energy like that and just make himself so comfortable with her.  Angel's a love too - just checking stuff out lol.

Great story :D ! I'm sure dogs feel things we can't and he had a 'feeling' that told him he could trust your sister. Lovely thing to happen.
