True Blood's Sam Trammell Has a Cat-like Dog
What is surprising is the fact that, after spending his days dealing with vampires, witches, and werewolves, Trammell curls up with a beast far different from anything that would turn up in even the darkest parts of Bon Temps.
"My girlfriend and I have a little West Highland terrier named Flossy," he told PEOPLEPets.com at Rolling Stone's Oscar party. "[She's] actually almost like a cat."
Trammell points out that the fluffy white terrier he's grown to love came as part of a package deal, as did the pup's cutesy moniker. "My girlfriend got the dog before we met, so it's a bit of an adoption for me," he said. "She actually decided on the name, then found the dog to fit the name."
Walking into a situation as the "third wheel" with a Westie – a breed known for having strong will and lots of energy – Trammell had his hands full from day one.
"Flossy needed a little structure and a little disciplining," he said with a laugh. "She was crazy."
