Sam and Rosie

Gary Borders

Rosie is our smart dog. She is high-strung but controls majority-interest of brains in our two-canine household. Sometimes when Sam will not come inside, she goes out to look for him, shaking her little head. Rosie is a rescue dog. She looks like Chewbacca when her fur is long. Her breed is uncertain, but certainly mixed. She is 5 years old, well-behaved and does not shed. Sam, on the other hand, is a 7-year-old sweet, special-needs dog.

During the summer travel season, family dogs often have a date with the kennel. Commentator Gary Borders' dogs, Sam and Rosie, became more happy-go-lucky when they returned home from a week of boarding, and that's not a bad thing.
