America's Next Top Model or Maybe Zoolander

I've been waiting rather impatiently to make this post....

Last fall the Creative Department of the catalog company I work for called to ask if my dogs would be available the next day for a photo shoot.  Of course I said, YES!

The next day I loaded Sam and Ginny into the car and went to a fabulous old farm/estate where they were shooting the book.  Half an hour later and a dozen shots later they had this....

There he is!  In the middle of the home page.  If you click on the Spring on line catalog link below that or in the left nav bar, you can view the virtual catalog.  He's on page 5 and he got what in the business is known as great real estate - half a page, right hand side of the spread and the 2nd full spread in the book.

He also got a modest pay check that he will be donating to the CWCNRT.  Sammy would like to challenge other "model" Cardigans to do the same!  Get a job and instead of blowing that paycheck on bones, give it to a Cardi in need!


  1. The tongue! The tongue! So glad the tongue is there in all its glory!

  2. It wouldn't be Sam without the tongue. I did give them permission to crop it if needed though :)

  3. I remember seeing Sam in 1999 for the first time. I fell in love with him. So good to see his is still around! Are there any Sam puppies around?

    Thanks for the kind words about Sam. He's something else and I feel so fortunate to have him in my life. He will be 12 at the end of May and yes, there are puppies around. There is a Sam litter on the ground in NC right now. They were born New Years Day.
