My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
Do many of you have any? Do you like them and are they durable? Last year I was thinking of getting one, but some kinda looked a bit tacky to me and decided to pass in the end. Depends what you get though. They're not cheap either. Last year when they had those snowglobes with the snow all flying around, those looked great and this year they’re coming out with some 12” ones, which I was hoping to see.
I might get a 12” one for a table centerpiece and if I ever got one of those big inflatables for outside, this is the only one Ive seen that I actually really like, since I love good ol’ Sam:
I’ve never seen him in the stores, so I’d probably have to go the ebay route if I decide to pick him up.

Yea, I’m the same way. That’s why I’ve been so hesitant with them. They, though Sam is one of the nicer ones I've seen, don’t look very good in person, like they do in the pics. Its mostly because I’ve wanted a Sam outside for so long and the only other one I‘ve seen was a reflective lighted 4 foot one that while nice, wasn’t really what I‘ve been looking for. As for the globe, I just saw another picture of the mini snow globe and it just looked like a beach ball with a stuffed animal in it.....
So, they’ll probably be a pass of me. And, I'm sure there will be a ton of new stuff this year anyway, like every year that I'll just "NEED" to have that I like a lot and get tempted by everything I see
