San Augustine dog featured on 'Good Morning America'

A San Augustine woman was pleasantly surprised Monday morning to see her dog, Sam, on ABC's Good Morning America.

Susan McCoy named her dog "Sam" after Sam Champion and saw both Sams bright faces side-by-side during a segment called "canine look-a-likes."

"We just named him Sam because we liked Sam Champion and he just looked like a Sam to us," McCoy said. "We were going to e-mail Sam Champion sometime and tell him we named him after him but we never did. And then we saw that contest come up and we thought that was the perfect opportunity."

McCoy said looks had nothing to do with why she was named after Champion, but Sam the dog grew into looking like his namesake.

She also said she didn't send the photo to Good Morning America until Friday and woke up Monday seeing both Sams on TV.
