Sometimes I feel envious of Sampson. Napping all day...taking a break to eat, go lie in the sunshine, go to the bathroom alone. Rough life. But, I don't envy when the boys do things like this. Batman and Robin needed a partner to fight crime in Gotham City, so Sam graciously stepped in as "man's best friend" is dutifully required to do. He cannot leap tall buildings in a single bound...he's getting old and arthritic. He won't chase after the boys unless they're running with a hot dog. When they say, "Come on, Bat Dog"...he usually yawns and lies down. But...beggars can't be choosers. Benji is a much worse choice of a third superhero. Maybe he likes it. Maybe he enjoys feeling needed for a few minutes...or even like someone cares. Because honestly, most of the time I forget he's even here...so sad. So enjoy your moment in the spotlight Sam..."Bat Dog."
