If It Quacks Like A Duck

Lately the bionic hip/knee pup Sam has been having problems getting up and down the stairs.  I think he just wants to be carried, but since he's slim on original parts, it could be that his warranty has run out and things are malfunctioning in there.  He does have a rather unique way of simply flinging himself down the stairs that is highly amusing... unless you happen to be at the bottom of the stairs when he comes barreling down.

To help him up and down the stairs, the Human Woman bought him a harness with a handle on it from those awesome folks over at Tripawds.  It's called "The Web Master" and for a while he thought that he would turn into the amazing Spider Dog when he put it on.  He's a bit delusional.

Of course the Human Woman has a name for it.  It can't simply be "the harness" because the Human Woman is also a bit delusional, and will probably soon be on an episode of Hoarders for her rabid purse addiction.

Yep, it's got a handle and carries something, so she calls it the Sammy purse.  Oh the woomanity!

I have to admit, it sorta does look like a purse


  1. Oh Sam. Honestly.

    p.s. Good work on getting everywhere.

  2. Hee hee...that is pretty funny. But if it helps him walk, then I promise not to laugh.


  3. Hey Sam,
    Maybe my mom could whip you up something more colorful! Ha woo. Just kidding, buddy.

  4. Sam- you're not wearing the purse, dear. you ARE the purse!! & a darned cute 1 at that!

  5. Oh the humanity! Wouldn't it be more dignified to install a pulley system? The old block and tackle. Or maybe a dumbwaiter.


  6. Hi Sam, I think it is quite handsome, hasn't Meeshka ever heard of a man purse? Hope you feel better soon.

  7. I had to chuckle (and the illustrations are just great!) I, too, think he looks handsome and "manpurses" are quite the rage now!

  8. Woo...looks like a Smurse to me!! A Sam-purse!!
