Sadie and Lily go for a Ride

Sadie and Lily are back from their long hiatus. They enjoy few things more than taking a joy ride through the streets of Philadelphia. Here’s proof, once again!

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 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

We are long overdue for an update on the events of notice in the lives of the Fairmount Dogs, Sadie and Lily. Here’s our list, shared in no particular order. Sadie pre and post grooming photos are here for your amusement. MM & RY 2010

1. Sadie encountered a raccoon on the back stoop a week ago. She barked at it, while Lily ran into the living room to hide. The raccoon was bigger than Sadie and smaller than Lily.

2. Sadie was filmed by a parking wars camera crew today. It was not a flattering view. You will see what we mean if at some point some footage of a mini poodle surfaces on the street views in an upcoming Philly episode.

3. Sadie and Lily survived their first 90 degree day of the season, met two new rescue dogs, witnessed a blimp overhead, and scared a lady walking by the playground (simply by being there).

4. Sadie was groomed after a winter of snow crystals embedded in her thick coat. Now she is tiny again.

5. Lily licks the legs of people wearing shorts if we don’t watch her carefully during her walks.

6. Lily charms everyone waiting for the bus in the mornings by refusing to budge from the front stairs until she has thoroughly inspected the whole block. She usually waits for walkers to pass by the stoop so she can follow them down the street.

7. There are quite a few new boxers in the neighborhood.

8. Sadie has a new habit of tossing her raw hides in the air a few times before she chews them. Lily whines throughout the entire raw hide show. The raw hide wars are officially over – Sadie has definitely won.

9. The kibbles we recently purchased are too big for Sadie. She eats them one nugget at a time as though they were cookies.

10. Sadie’s boyfriend Charlie, the Great Dane puppy, has a brother.  Now she is beloved by two young Great Danes.
