In less than a month Cheese will be one year old. That means we've had him for about 10 months now. Sometimes it doesn't feel like we've had him that long because we are still so enamored of him (can't you tell by my constant mention of him?). But then other times he feels like such an important and major part of our family unit that I can't imagine a time when we didn't have him in our lives. He's definitely growing into his Basset Hound-ness. He grows lazier and lazier by the day. Yet he still has moments of being a complete puppy. We love him more and more each day, probably more than a person should love an animal, but oh well. He's like our four legged baby.
