Sam has no real job, yet he gets plenty to eat. He's not on unemployment; he does not receive welfare or any type of Social Security benefits. Sam pays no rent and doesn't own a house, but he sleeps in a comfortable bed every night and it's not at a shelter. He doesn't go to a free clinic or get Medicaid, yet he has excellent medical care and is in very good health for someone who is 91 years old.
Sam is an old dog who can teach all of us some new tricks-and how a village raising a dog just might be the answer to a myriad of woes we face in this disastrous economy. As Thanksgiving approaches, taking a look at the life of this very special dog will show us how to be truly thankful.

Thanks as usual to Gina Misiroglu of Red Room for putting me in touch with the AOL people. It’s just one of the great ways she's bringing traffic to Red Room and getting attention for Red Room's authors.
