The Truth About Sam

OK to clear things up for those of you who have not read the books and don't know anything about supernatural creatures. Sam is not a werewolf. He is a shape shifter. Hence why he turns into a collie not a wolf. According to the books, Sam can turn into any animal he likes but he prefers to turn into a collie.

And Bill did know that Sam was a collie. Hence how he knew that Sam knew he was a vampire before anyone else outside of Sookie. And that is also how Bill knew Sam would be able to protect Sookie well.

with a title like "The Truth about Sam" I am pretty sure you would be able to infer that there are spoilers in this post. I, for one, am thankful for this! this show always leaves me right on the edge

"Sam can turn into any animal he likes"
Somehow I don't think so. Either I missed that very significant passage in the book, or it isn't true. Him being able to change into any animal would make nonsensical the werepanthers and weretigers situation in the books. They're limited to one animal, I believe, though it's very possible that the True Blood may decide to do something different with it.

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris excerpt to back up the shape shifting thing. page 251. About half way down the page.
"What are you Sam?" "I'm a shapeshifter. I thought it was time you knew." "Did you have to do it quite like that?" "Actually," he said, embarrassed, "I had planned on waking up and getting out before you opened your eyes. I just overslept. Running around on all fours kind of tires you out." "I thought people just changed into wolves." "NOPE. I CAN CHANGE INTO ANYTHING."

Huh, thank you! You were right. Now, I wonder if a line is drawn between were-animals and shapeshifters. I was pretty certain the panthers did not have a choice, whether they look at picture books of other animals or not.
Thanks for looking it up for me.
