Sam and Animals


Sam loved animals of all walks of life.  He grew up with many special dogs and loved taking them for walks at Lake Calhoun or just relaxing and enjoying their company.

He would snuggle with kittens on our Isanti hobby farm, give rides to the goats and sheep in the back of his four-wheeler, and catch turtles in the pond, write their names on their shell and return them to the water.


A friend to creatures big and small, he had special rabbits, and helped to build our family chicken coop and collected eggs for the family.
