I just realized that our dear dog, Sir Patrick has not yet graced the pages of our blog. We adpoted him 2 years ago at the age of eight. He is old and chilled out and works great in our chaotic life. He does have moments when he thinks that he is two and wants to act like it for a few short hours and then he sleeps for what seems like days. Back in the day of the lake house (where my parents lived for a stretch) he would swim for endless hours until all the humans gave up throwing the stick.
