Signed Sammie’s adoption papers yesterday. I learned a few things from his papers. The Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter’s initial intake exam took took place on December 3, 2020. He was probably found shortly before then. They estimated that he was born ten years before so they assigned him a birthdate of December 3, 2010. The Baltimore forms give his name as “Rock.” They also said that he is a Shih Tzu mix.
Baltimore must have sent him right up to Philadelphia because the first Saved Me exam is dated four days later on December 7, 2020. I’m glad Philadelphia gave him the name “Sammie.” Like the prophet Samuel, he is a gift.
And it came to pass when the time was come about, Anna conceived and bore a son, and called his name Samuel: because she had asked him of the Lord. Samuel 1:20 (DRV)
