Samwise the dog got hit by a car on February 1, 2003, he broke his left back leg below the knee and will probably have seattle surgury on monday february 3, 2003 to put a plate at the break to hold the break in place. according to the vet, a plate rather than a pin will be better and allow him to move around better, while it heals up.

my brother phillips dog, samwise, got hit by a car and broke his leg while at manaco beach on february 1, 2003. the below links are from a series of e-mails and webpage links i (louis bloom), sent out about samwise the dogs recovery from his broken leg. also, there are odds and ends manaco beach, camano island pictures. the surgery and other bills for fixing his leg cost around $4,000.00. if we knew it would cost that much, samwise may have have become a three legged dog or gotten a cheap "sleeping" shot. here's a link to sam the dog pictures from saturday february 1, 2003
