Man's best friend

This post is for my wonderful, faithful, beautiful, funny, crazy boxer Patch. Since he is my most devoted photo companion, I decided that he deserves my gratitude for keeping me company for the last 5 years. While I snap away happily, he patiently waits for me to finish and continue with our countryside ramblings together.

 He was just 2 months old when he joined our family. 
He could fit in the crook of my arm.

But then he grew up so fast

     He loves to play, bark at stones (seriously!!), chase after stones in the lake (if someone agrees to throw them for him he can run and splash for hours), sleep (a lot), pretend to be a sofa cushion, and all in all he is just a big softy. Normally no one believes that because he is so strong and big!!

He really wishes he could fly

He loves walking with me and appreciates a good view.

He is very curious, 
always comes to investigate what I am doing

He is simply wonderful!!

He knows how to express himself pretty well. 

He doesn't really need to talk 
his eyes can say it all
