Sam, his brother, Simon, and his sister, Sheba, were taken to the Keweenaw Animal Alliance as very small puppies. They had been abandoned in an isolated area behind Zeba. From trembling little black fluff balls, they changed into softly furred, 4 month old characters. Sheba was soon adopted. Like human brothers, Sam and Simon played together. Sam would fight mock battles with his blanket. The less adventurous Simon would rush in to help him. (Gazette article: Saturday, 3/30/96) We hope Simon and Sheba were adopted into good homes. We adopted Sam on April 13, 1996, and he has stolen our hearts.
