Sammie Streisand

Sammie, then & now! 
Jim posed for photos with Samantha in my patio (& was showered with kisses!) 
during one of his visits to Phoenix. Sammie was only 7 weeks old. 

Samantha traveled to her beachfront home in Malibu when she was 13 weeks old. 
Within just a few weeks Barbra & Sammie were on a jet headed for the East Coast where they appeared on The Oprah Show.  Luckily Sammie has never been camera-shy, 
& she has traveled around the globe, always at Barbra's side.  

Sammie calls this home.

The LADY of the house!
