Sam basks in the golden hour on the banks of the Wenatchee River.

More: Sam has been our faithful companion for 13 years, first as our adventuring buddy, then as our high chair clean up crew when our sons were born, and now as our cuddly, snoring love bug. Though the years have taken their toll on his eyes, ears, and hips, they have done nothing to dim his indefatigable goofiness or irrepressible love for his family. He’s the best good boy there ever was.
