5 months old

Satchel is five months old now, and he weighs about 40 pounds (give or take a few...it's hard to weigh him at home).  He's getting so big!  He loves to play fetch and tug-of-war, and he still loves to snuggle.  He's been losing his baby teeth at a pretty rapid rate lately; I've found three teeth on the carpet in the last two days.  He's begun to love car rides.  I think he's figured out that getting in the car usually means he gets to do something fun once he gets out of the car.  Shawn was cleaning out the car the other day and took Satchel outside with him.  Satchel jumped into the car and happily hung out in the backseat while Shawn was cleaning.

Here are a few recent pictures of the little guy!
Here, he's checking out the camera, wondering what's going on in the front yard.
 Trying to look all innocent.  Really, he's hoping that I look away so that he can jump up into that chair.
 He's figured out that he's now tall enough to look out the window by himself.  He likes to keep an eye out for Shawn to come home.  He also sometimes likes to stand with his front paws on the window sill.
 Getting ready to go on a hike on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
 It's hard to get a non-blurry picture of him, especially when we're playing fetch.

Yay for Satchel! They grow up so fast! We really need to do more things 'out' with our guys because Mickey gets nervous when we're in the car.
