Sampson was born in 2010 and weighed close to a hundren pounds; he later weight about 125.. He moved to Tucson with his family in late 2011. He is one of Garrett's friends at McDonald Park.

Sad news from Randy - September 12, 2019.
"Samson Passed away at about 12:30 am. He was not feeling well, yesterday, and had been dealing with very weak hips. I was sleeping on the floor with him because he was breathing hard and unable to stand.

"Sam was about Ten. He had just lost a lot of weight. He was back down to 98 pounds and looked a lot like he did when you saw him [in Tucson]. He was having some hip problems and would get a shot every month for joint pain. He loved it here, there were endless squirrels to chase. But It is very hot here and humid, I think next summer we will travel."
