Congratulations to Dayle Finn
winner of a Tales2Inspire Award
for her inspiring story, Sampson and Delilah
Dayle Finn first heard about Sampson and Delilah from her mother and just couldn’t resist such an inspiring story. So she wrote first as a short story and entered it into the Tales2Inspire competition. Now Dayle has written this same story in a separate edition as a children’s picture book.
Sampson and Delilah is the true story of the unlikely companionship of a white goose and a tan lab. Dayle’s mom was one of the people who traveled Bog Road every day and marveled at the togetherness of these two animals. She could see how totally devoted they were to one another. One day, when she began sharing these stories with her daughter, Dayle became intrigued. She thought to herself, What heartwarming stories to share with others. Sampson’s owners, Betty and Les Brown, also lived on Bog Road, so Dayle turned to her them for more details. She became even more intrigued because their stories showed an incredible amount of devotion these two animals felt for one another! Dayle couldn’t resist. She needed to tell this wonderful story – the story of a truly unique animal friendship.
