As we're counting down the days until our new pup arrives, I've been thinking back to what Thatcher was like as a baby. Today, I discovered all these old videos of Thatcher on our computer that I never really watched. Throughout the past two years, he has destroyed many a shoe, plant and ball. But some toys have been with him since he was a puppy. Three in particular: the stuffed bear, the rubber squeaky giraffe and the bean bag lion. Bear has been his best friend since the beginning, and as a result has taken the roughest beating of them all. Here is a look at bear then and bear now. I just noticed his head is now missing.
