Dogs in Space: Sam and Anna

Sam is a member of 'Dogs in Space' and one of the residents of the punks' and hippies' household. He is from a neurotic, Catholic middle-class family from the outer suburbs of Melbourne. Sam is handsome and affects an endearing air of 'puppy-dog' stupidity that makes him attractive to young women. This can be deceptive, however, as there is an element of ruthless ambition about him.

His girlfriend, Anna, has a vivacious, outgoing personality that is immediately infectious. She has shoulder length blonde hair and a gleam in her eye when she speaks. She is much more 'together' than Sam but is crazily head-over-heels in love with him. Anna works part-time as a trained nurse and often has money to spend. Sam has little or none.
