Wednesday the 25th was Sebastian's "Gotcha Day" (as his rescue organization calls it), the anniversary of the date when I adopted him. It's hard to believe he has been my dog for EIGHT years! I have now had him longer than I had my previous dog Saffron, who missed eight years by less than two weeks.
Sebastian has his annoying habits, just like any dog, but he is super-smart, friendly and lovable. My life has been immeasurably enriched by having him in it for the past eight years.
Thank you, Sebastian, for being such a wonderful companion!
