Sammie and Toby ARE dogs!


Sammie and Toby are real dogs. They met in 2004, when Sammie (the Pit Bull) was two years old, and Toby (the Golden Retriever) was just a little puppy. They were very different. Sammie was patient, affectionate, and nurturing. Toby was energetic, playful, and happy. They loved each other from the beginning. They became the best of friends.

There are hundreds of stories about their loving devotion, sensitivity, playfulness, and funny quirks. The Sammie and Toby books are for them, and in remembrance of Sammie, who passed away on December 2, 2014. She was the perfect expression of unconditional love and we will always remember her.
