Happy Birthday Strider!

Our first born Strider turns six today – we call him our best “big dog” or our “best boy” whereas Sage is our best “little dog” or our “best girl” – that way everyone is happy 🙂 Truly though Strider is an awesome dog and has always been an old soul. He tells me to also give a shout out to his best bud Grit who sadly now lives in Oklahoma. Grit was born in Oklahoma (Strider was born in New Hampshire) but they were both born the same day – 4/21/06 🙂

And of course I couldn’t resist reminiscing a little to our first summer with Strider when he was still little enough to hitch a ride in the kayak!!
