This Time Last Year...

...we had a brand new puppy at our house!  We brought Satchel home on January 24th, 2010.  Look how sweet and little he was!!

Yes, there were definitely times over the last year when Satchel drove me nuts.  I believe it was after he'd been here four days when I burst into tears when Satchel was trying to attack the trash bag while I was attempting to take it out of the trash can.  He's chewed holes into at least 4 of my shirts, and the bottom edge of our couch will never be the same. 

But really...we couldn't ask for a better dog for us.  A year later, he's about 70 pounds.  He has tons of energy and is always willing and ready to go for a walk or a car ride or a hike or to the dog park or to play.  But he also loves to snuggle and thinks that he's a lap dog. 

We definitely love our little buddy!!  He keeps us busy and makes us laugh.  We've already informed him that he needs to live forever.  :)

I can't believe how fast you have grown Satchel. I remember when you were just a baby. Hope you had a wonderful birthday.
