Blessed by the Memory of Samantha Blair-Boutelle
Through a series of some will say unfortunate events, after the death of Samantha, I ended up with her beloved dog Max (thanks Brock for giving him to us) and Samantha's Sweet Leaf Sofa. I feel blessed to have two items that were so well loved by Sam! I know that Samantha loved Max like her child and I am certain that no matter how much we love Max that we will never be able to treat him as well as she would like! That's just Sam! She's a tiger Mom, just like the rest of us Blair Moms!
I am lucky that I ended up buying her Sweet Leaf sofa as well. She spent a lot of time picking it out and loved it! It matches our house and since our dogs ate our leather couch, we had room for it downstairs!
Hunter and Ryan have both LOVED having a shorter, milder dog. Hunter can control Max easily on a leash and enjoys taking him for walks. Ryan likes Max because he is calmer and he can sort of cuddle with Max (even though Max is too big for his lap). I suspect that Max is Hunter and Ryan's favorite dog even though he is the newest. All of our dogs are between 2 and 3 years old so they are pretty much in the same stage of exuberant life!
Here is Hunter taking Max for the fourth walk of the day (good for BOTH of them!). And a picture of Samantha's Sweet Leaf Sofa!!
