Sadie Loves her Fluff!

Sadie and her sidekick Lily enjoy snuggling up in the loftiest, fluffiest blankets and pillows they can find. Here is Sadie breaking a rule by resting on a pillow. Lily is near by.

Sadie contemplates next move from her hiding place under the throw.

Sadie, of Sadie and Lily, has a large vocabulary. It suits her since she is a vocal dog. She may be small in stature but she never misses an opportunity for her voice to be heard. Here’s the rundown:

Go Sadie Go *runs real fast, especially up the stairs*

Go home Sadie *darts down the block to our stoop and waits for door to open, Lily lags behind*

Wait Sadie *stops and retreats*

icccckkkkkk *considers NOT eating something she is sniffing*

Off *jumps off furniture and jumps back on again, as if it was the most fun a dog could have on earth*

Mine *Sadie yawns to pretend that she is ok giving up on a toy, rawhide, or nugget of food*

Sit Sadie *Sadie sits!*

Let’s Go Sadie *Sadie trots with you to the next destination*

Up *Sadie has permission to hop on the bed, chair or sofa and does so in an instant*

Right Now *Sadie must come immediately because she is lost in the forest, thick bushes, or some other place more interesting than her walk route*

Sadie and Lily have started today in full throttle. They have been chasing each other through the house hoping for a treat, toy, rawhide, or outdoor activity. Sadie already enjoyed an egg. They have shredded a toy and left it on deck for future playful activity. Lily is angling for a coveted can of food. She nudges the can with her nose since it is on an open shelf near her food station. Sadie is currently playing possum. She likes to pretend that nothing much will interest her by fake-napping on the sofa or on Lily’s chair. The nano-second that we make a move for the door or kitchen Sadie will present herself as Ready-To-Go. Lily will carefully study Sadie the squirt. If it looks like Sadie is on to something big, like a car ride or extra tasty treat, Lily is in. Otherwise, she will not be bothered to lift her head from her resting position. MM & RY 2011

Sadie and Lily love to play at a place we call the playground. It’s a corner of Fairmount Park that has been taken over by dogs in the mornings and afternoons near the Art Museum in Philadelphia. Today we were mostly on our own. Lily enjoyed thrashing on the dirt. Sadie investigated all of the smells and scouted out our route. At times Lily, our stubborn boxer, decided she did not want to go. Everyone had a great time because spring is in the air. Here are some photos of our walk. MM & RY 2011

Sadie's fixated on the view from her couch

When the sun reappears, Sadie monitors for the sounds of shovels

Sadie and Lily monitor the doors and windows on our street. The view through the window gives a glimpse of the blizzard two days ago. The second photo shows Sadie carefully scrutinizing the sounds outside when the shoveling begins. She barks if its too close, too loud, or too inconsistent. Lily is a little more laid back about the near constant activity outside. Both of them wait eagerly for their opportunity to go for the next walk, snow trek, or quick errand in the car. Everywhere we go we encounter the same joyous little dogs, so happy to be out and about with their people, sniffing ludicrous amounts of information and galloping through mounds of snow. They seem to know this is a once in a lifetime pleasure. Watch Lily go in the video below.  MM & RY 2010

Sadie in the Back Yard

There is a lot of snow in Philadelphia. Sadie is looking quite tiny against the mounds on our back yard stoop. She enjoys it, yet she’s a little intimidated to be out in the cold without her forever pal, Lily at her side. The dogs are due for a Fairmount walk in a little while. In the meantime, they are soaking up some sunshine in a favorite sunny spot on the stair way landing. MM & RY 2010
