Pet of the Issue – Samson

Submitted by Jennifer Chapple


Samson, a Lab mix, is best friend to Ms. Chapple and fiancé Robert Brill, who live in Santa Rosa Beach. “I rescued Samson from Alaqua Animal Refuge (in May 2017) when he was a puppy,” Ms. Chapple tells Beachcomber. “We were looking (for) an addition to our family, and we fell in love with Samson. He was already adopted when we met him, but fortunately the family returned him because they had large tortoises and were worried about (Samson’s) safety.”

Samson rests up for the next day’s adventures. “He has been the center of our world,” says Jennifer.
Samson enjoys taking a dip in the Gulf, along with long walks (sniffing around Watercolor in particular) and visits to Alaqua Unleashed dog park, where he gets to frolic with pals Monty, Bailey, Charlie, Ripley, Zephyr and Murphy.
Samson and Robert enjoy a lovely Beachcomberland sunset.
