11 yr old Satch teaches 3 mo old Sophie

Sophie is our rescue pup from Yelm Animal Alliance. She was found tightly bungee-corded to the back of a bike as a baby. We adopted her as a companion and friend for our (145 lb) 'gentle giant' Satch, an 11 year old Lab mix we've had since he was a pup. Here he gently teaches his new sister the fine art of 'play'.. constantly returning the toy to her so that she can interact. This was last April, and they are both still 'perfecting' the art of play.

Aww. I love revisiting this video. We lost Satch in January, and still miss him terribly. Sophie has become a sweet, curious, and dear soul.. and I credit Satch with a lot of her traits. He was a good 'teacher'. Thanks Michel, he was a treasure..

What a wonderful life you have given little Sophie! You've obviously bred some true nobility into big old Satch - I've never seen this kind of behavior in a dog. Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful video.
