St. Louis Sammy Sightings – December, 2011

Posted on 29 November 2011 by susan9472

Each December, SLSR volunteers wrap gifts for St. Louis area Barnes & Noble customers.  Often, we have a Samoyed manning the table as well.  They aren’t very talented at gift wrapping, but they do an excellent job receiving pets and giving kisses!

Stay tuned, we will post our wrapping schedule in the near future.
