Sammy’s dog Ruger is now known most often as Lars’s dog. He still sleeps in a crate in Lars’s bedroom and spends his indoor time on the tiled floor of the living room or kitchen. He is getting so big so fast. He knows his name, and listens to all the basic commands – and he listens well! Lars takes him for runs most days through the vineyard and around the blackberries. All the grandchildren play with Ruger and he loves the attention.
