Sawyer Meets His One True Love

Sawyer and Thatcher wait together at the front door.

When we brought home beautiful Thatcher (as in Becky), she was very shy in her new environment, and a little hesitant to interact with anyone. We hoped Sawyer (as in Tom) would take a shining to his new girlfriend, which he quickly did. She, however, true her namesake, was more reserved and hesitant to express her affection for him; she waited for him to make the first move. He did, by dropping his favorite toy at her feet and waiting patiently, gesturing for her to pick it up. (swoon!) The pair has been inseparable ever since. They sing at the piano together, play fetch and bring back the rope together, one on each end, eat together, and usually sleep together too. They wait for each other first thing in the morning before they go outside, and love to run out the front door together, shoulders touching, as they bound across the front lawn.


  1. I'm so glad they have each other! Theirs will be an epic love story in the coming years, I'm sure.

  2. I can't wait to meet Thatcher. I think they are both such wonderful dogs!

  3. Oh, yes, they're a perfect pair--matched to complement each other, and SO devoted!
