Samantha the Border Collie

First Meeting

Samantha was born on a farm in Vinton, Iowa. She was the only red-and-white puppy amongst eight black-and-white siblings.

Moving In

She moved in with us when she was six weeks old. At first she was a little apprehensive about her new surroundings, but it wasn't long before she was getting used to things!

Getting Bigger

Samantha didn't stay a tiny baby puppy forever! She even ventured out for a shopping trip...

Here's a video of Samantha with her sister Annabelle, courtesy of Lori Griffith:

Summer Fun

She's a natural swimmer!... and a slightly awkward surfer...
