Seen and Not Heard

Children should be seen and not heard. Silence is a woman's best garment. Aren't proverbs great? But I'm done with being quiet.

Puppy in I Am Legend

I started Watching I Am Legend a few nights ago. In the movie, Emma Thompson discovers the cure for cancer, which is a mutated measles virus... naturally there are some Very Bad side effects. This isn't a review of the film or anything, I just want to know if I can finish watching it.

There's a wonderful German Shepherd in the movie named Sam... If you haven't seen the movie and want to, you may not want to read... but if you have a soft spot for dogs, you may want to find out if he survives.

Now... I thought I was being very brave... and managed to keep watching the movie through the part where Sam runs into a tunnel (there are bad things in the dark). Sam survives his foray underground, but about three quarters of the way through the movie, infected dogs attack. Sam defends his master, but we've already been told he's susceptible to contact transmission of the virus, so he's probably infected.

My question is... does Sam survive? If not, I'm not going to finish watching the movie. I spent 30 minutes hugging my wonderful puppy, and telling her not to attack zombie dogs as it was. If Sam survives I'm interested in how the movie ends. If Sam doesn't make it... I'm going to make up my own happy ending.

The sad thing is that I don't really care if Will Smith survives. If he dies, if his family died, I don't care. Just tell me the dog makes it though. Then I can watch the end of the movie.
