Emme and Luke came to play today. It was funny to see a puppy through their eyes. Reid and I decided that we would be very firm when we disciplined Samson and use a loud "NO!" It just makes sense to start early and be consistent since he is going to be close to 100+ pounds! So, when he started to chew on the rug at my kitchen sink I yelled a firm, "NO, Samson!" Emme and Luke were quite concerned about why he would chew something, and we had to have a talk about how we only talk to dogs we are training like that - never people.
Samson never really took to the kids and they had little interest in him. I'm sure it will be better when he's older. He spent most of the time we were at my house in his crate or under my desk in the kitchen. During lunch Emme got really concerned about Samson. I took a video because it was too funny to leave undocumented.
