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.

Seriously Sadie!

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

Lily the Smoosh Up Close

Here is a recent photo of Lily, AKA the smoosh, up close. She is going gray at just four years old. We think her best pal, Sadie – AKA our mini poodle and first class squirt, taunts her mercilessly. Lily’s disposition is nearly always sweet and good natured. But every once in a while she lets Sadie know that she is number one. MM & RY 2011

Sadie and Lily after their Tropical Pawadise Pawpawty DJ Duties

Sadie and Lily enjoy their DJ duties at monthly Pawpawty events organized by Twitter Anipals to raise money for animal charities.  The girls have their own Blip.fm station here. Today the Pawpawty theme was Tropical Pawadise. You can read more about the event here.   We shared tunes from Brazil (the Tropical part) and featured musical artists from Philadelphia (the paradise part – at least as far as Sadie and Lily are concerned)!

Sadie and Lily are trying to stay cool, just like all the rest of Philadelphia’s human and pet populations! They enjoy lounging in front of the fan and sipping chilled water. However, due to their status as “young dogs,” they require a lot of exercise. Today was typical of the hottest days at the playground. Sadie and Lily played alone. They ran from shady spot to shady spot. They enjoyed a bit of forest wandering. Lily wallowed in a dirt hole behind the bench. Sadie chased a bird. Both of them cooled off in a post-playground bath.  MM & RY 2010

Sadie and Lily, aka the Fairmount Dogs, are inseparable. They play, eat, sleep, run, and guard together. Here are a few moments of togetherness from just one typical day with Sadie and Lily. MM & RY 2010
