Cake!

Sadie and Lily are committed to food. Birthdays and other celebrations are high on their list of fun times. They are working this situation hard to get a bit of the fabulous Italian Rum cake on the corner of the counter. It’s from our favorite bakery in Philly. It is fair to say that the bakery is a favorite of Sadie and Lily too. The candles are vintage.

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, our mini-poodle, has acquired the habit of scratching herself to the point of hair loss. She has giant patches of exposed skin where she has scratched her entire coat away. We have tried many remedies, none have worked entirely. After trying to manage the problem with steroids, creams, and anti-itch shampoos, we settled on clothing. She now wears a giant sweater nearly all the time. She does not love the sweater. She merely tolerates it. She still attempts to scratch herself, but with less vigor and with reduced harmful effect. We are not sure why this strategy seems to help her, but at least for now, she is our cowl-necked beauty.
