Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #741 - Happy Birthday Satchel, a five-year old Beagle

Hi Mom,

I interrupt my usual routine, the usual MUSICAL MONDAY, for this special blog post announcement.

Happy Birthday to my oh so special puppy dog, her Booness, duh Boo Boo, Smartest dog on the planet earth and beyond (no, really, don't argue), Satchel Paige Tower, who turns five years old today July 17th, 2017.

To celebrate, I dropped Ellory at Camp Fido daycare, and I took Satchel to the Asylum Lake Nature Preserve for a walk, just for her, with her Dad (that's me), solo, no Ellory.

This seems to be a thing. She enjoys her Ellory free time, but she also seems to miss Ellory. Right now, she's camped out in Ellory's crate.

She does that a lot, especially when Ellory's not here.

Here's my posts about our walk.

Here's Satchel tired from the walk.

She's exhausted, but she's happy.

There's video!!

This is a quickie entry because I have a lot of work to do.

I do have a Satchel CATEGORY - here at this link. Click and view all the Satchel posts (or posts that feature Satchel) in reverse order. I am up to 741 total posts for the blog, including this one, and I only have 18 posts featuring Satchel (unless I missed some), so that's not enough.

Liesel considers Satchel her soulmate, which I think is very true. They have an uncanny bond.

I also feel that soul-deep connection with Satchel, and we share a bond, too, but it's different.

I devoted myself to enjoying Ellory as a puppy more because I regret not spending as much time and energy (and photos and videos) on Satchel as a puppy. Her puppy time seemed to go so fast... AND now she's five years old.

She needs to out live both of us.

I am not going to go nuts, but here's just a few photos of my great love Satchel the boo.

I know you love this stuff, Mom, but for other readers, thank you for tuning in.

Reflect and connect.

Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.

I miss you so very much, Mom.

Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
