I've never seen my dad more attached to an animal, than he is to Sam. Sam is one of his best friends and they spend a lot of time together. Sam's a bit of a goober, but a good dog and Nixon spent a lot of time watching him out the window and became very fond of him.
I feel like this picture should have the caption, "A Man's Best Friend."
I won't lie, going down to the river brought back many memories of taking dogs down to swim. I used to love it, and I still kind of do.
