Manners Matter, Part 2: Sam and the Mouse

I did a post about respect and responsibility, Manners Matter, which included a video, Good Behavior, featuring Sam.  One segment, Tolerate, was about Sam meeting a mouse on the beach.

People asked about the amazing wizarding powers involved in not only capturing the mouse and persuading it to sit with Sam, but, in preventing Sam from devouring the little critter.

I can claim no such great power.

Sam and I were enjoying a walk through the tide on our favorite beach on the Olympic Peninsula.

We decided to take a rest. Walking up towards the shoreline, we came upon what appeared to be some kind of Kangaroo mouse. I’m guessing, because of the big feet.

We’ve been on this beach many times and never once saw this kind of creature. Sam was fascinated, but not aggressively so.

He has good manners, and the mouse seemed unafraid.

The pictures are extraordinary and I’m glad I had my camera with me. I’m thinking the mouse and Sam sitting together would make a great poster.
