(Dad though he would like to add a bit to my pages)
Things you should know about a Samoyed (Sammy-yed) before you part with your money.
If you already own a Sammy then this might come as a bit of a shock as we all know them to be (in the main) our silent partner. We have never known them to raise voice at the 'knock of a door' at a 'misplaced toy thing' or for generally no good reason. This is considered as barbarous dissonance by most, if not all owners.
Right: This is the 'Part Mlem' which normally precedes the 'Full Mlem'
The dog with the mask clearly understands this term (although not a full Samoyed)
Left: The wonderful example of the 'Full Mlem'
Magnificently portrayed here in this Mlem moment that you may only catch once or maybe twice a year.
Right: And finally the 'Snorp', worn here by the part Samoyed. Rated 'Fairly Common' but not often caught on camera.
This is a term that has been shunned by the Samoyed community as a whole and recently caused uproar when it was suggested that a full name change should be adopted by the Samoyed Association to avoid confusion between the two completely different breeds.
The following are examples of what you hope to have learned from the above, if you fully understand these, it will help when it comes to deciding whether to adopt or buy a samoyed in the future.
For clarity we have identified the important parts of a Samoyed's anatomy which may help with discussions with your Vet should any problems arise in these distinctive areas.
It is important to understand how your Samoyed will fit into the community..
