Top 10 Reasons to be Thankful for Samoyeds
On this day for which we give thanks, I wanted to take a quick moment to talk about why we are so thankful for our Samoyeds. Which seems appropriate since this is a blog devoted to Samoyeds.
We’re thankful for so many things from all three of our Samoyeds, Zoya, Ramius, and of course our current Samoyed Sacha. This could be a list of 100, but who would read that right? So, here are the Top 10 Reasons to be Thankful for Samoyeds this Thanksgiving/
10. They are always smiling
Nothing brightens your day more than waking up, or coming home to, a Samoyed’s smiling happy face.
9. Samoyeds make a great winter comforter
Since we’ll be in LA this winter, this is less of a need than it is in Chicago. But still, on those cold, winter nights, nothing beats having your Samoyed snuggle up with you in bed or next to you on your couch.
8. Samoyeds are very clean
As long as you brush them and have them groomed regularly, Samoyeds don’t have much of an odor at all. And they’re very clean and are always attentive to their fur. Other than when they blow out their undercoat and your house looks like white tumbleweeds, their shedding is manageable.
7. Their Fur Makes Great Yarn
It’s true, and they call it S’arn. Though we’ve never done this, your Samoyeds fur can be spun into a yarn. Which could be a great thing to donate to your local charity.
6. They’re great with children
If you have kids, nieces, or nephews, you’ll love having a Samoyed around. They love playing with children and are very protective of them.
5. Samoyeds are chick magnets
Well this isn’t of much use to me as a happily married man. But a note to any single guys out there, if you want to meet women in your neighborhood, get a Samoyed. Trust me!
4. Samoyeds offer solid protection
When my wife first moved into what eventually became our place in Chicago, the neighborhood was…well…not so great. One of the reasons she got our first Samoyed Zoya is for protection. And did that ever work! Our Sammies are on the bigger side, as they’ve each weighed over 90lbs. Take a big dog, add in a ton of fur, and they look even bigger.
3. They’re like puppies forever
Now mind you, that can be both a good thing and a bad thing. But your Samoyed never loses his playfulness. They’re always active and love to have fun.
2. They’re the life of the party
Whenever you have friends and family over, your Samoyed will become the center of attention. And if your Samoyed is anything like all three of ours, they’ll love it!
1. Samoyeds bring joy to your life
One thing we’ve found with our Samoyeds is that they will be your best friend. No matter what kind of day you’re having, your Samoyed is always affectionate and wants to be by your side. What’s a better definition of a best friend than that?
This list could certainly go on and on, and I’m sure I missed a few things that I’ll be kicking myself about later. If you have a Samoyed, or know someone who does and would like to comment, please do so below. Or, if you’re thinking about getting one and have a question, please be sure to ask. We’ll be sure to get back to you, maybe even Sacha himself!
And two more quick things before you go.
If you have a Samoyed, or know somebody who does, but sure to check out our page of shopping and gift ideas. Though these are more summer related, many of these items are good all year round. And besides, summer is just around the corner right? Right…?
And also, whether you have a Samoyed or any other type of dog, you must make sure you have good pet health insurance. Readers of this blog know how partial I am to Healthy Paws Pet Insurance and you can read my FULL REVIEW by clicking here. They’re even good for cats too! 🙂
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
