Sometimes I get questions about my life that I've been meaning to answer.
Today's question is: Do you call Sam "spineless" because he's scared of things?
I use to think that Sam was too stupid to be scared of anything, but I've changed my mind over the past few years, and now see him as an evil genius. Evil in a good husky way, and a genius because he has figured out how to have the humans lift him onto the bed, carry him off the bed, feed him in bed (whenever he doesn't feel like being lifted off the bed), carried down stairs, and catered to like a king.
Of course all of this came at a price, and for Sam that has meant 3 surgeries. You see, the reason I call Sam "spineless" is because he doesn't have a spine. Yep, it was removed a few years ago. Ok, not the entire spine, but the way he acts, you would think he didn't have one, because he spends most of his time on the sleep number bed (having been lifted onto it by the humans) and being catered to hand and foot.
In a nutshell, Sam is a medical mess.
So, that's why he's spineless: he doesn't have one.
To make him even more of a freak of nature, Sam will only poo if he can poo on SOMETHING.
Sam will poo on a stick:
Sam will poo on a pile of leaves:
Sam will poo on the Mutatoe:
Needless to say, Mutatoe is never thrilled when that happens, but it is funny.
Believe it, or claw
