Sadie, our mini-poodle, has taken a turn to the bossy side. She enforces a new command called “move.” When we ask Lily to “move” from the chair, sofa, bed or other restricted zone, Sadie begins to woof. We think she is trying to say “move” with us. Lily follows the move command – when and only when Sadie participates in the process!

Here is where Lily usually is when we ask her to “move…”

Sadie is looking fashionable today because she was just clipped yesterday. Lily has been witnessed to run at full throttle on the playground all week now that the snow has melted and the ground is somewhat dry. Here are some photos of the dogs from the last few months while we have been on hiatus. MM & RY 2011

Sadie is in her usual position, at the top of the sofa looking out of the windows. She is always on alert. She is the alarmist and Lily is the muscle.

Lily, AKA the smoosh, has a lot of unique positions on her favorite chair. This one is her super-duper puppy curl, when she is the tiniest she can be despite her "almost" 80 pound body.

Sadie is shown here at her shaggiest. When we can't see the eyes, it is time for a visit to Barbie the groomer.

Lately, Sadie and Lily's favorite chair is draped with two striped blankets plus the girls themselves. Every day in Fairmount ends the same way - with Sadie and Lily huddled together something like this.

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 is a clever girl. She has heightened senses and therefore barks a lot. She barks to let us know that she has heard a noise in the distance. We often doubt her, but over the years we have learned she is not random. She simply has superior hearing. Last night she heard thunder in the distance many seconds before we did. Like all dogs, she also has a superior sense of smell as well. For instance, she discovered this eggshell at Fairmount Park last week with her nose! It has since washed away in the rains of the past couple of days. In the mean time, Sadie has parked on the favorite chair, positioned to alert us to all that is new. 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

Sadie La P is nosy. She has to be in on everything happening in the kitchen, on the stoop, in the living room, and at work. She displays her interest in the following ways:

  • She runs at a full gallop when the door of the refrigerator opens.
  • She barks each and every time she hears footsteps outside of the front window.
  • She darts off of the stoop to investigate dogs and kids who pass by on the rare occasions when she is allowed to sit on the front stoop.
  • She is a thief – of all things rawhide-related that belong to Lily.
  • Sadie is a tattle tale. She insists we pay attention to the things she has noticed by looking at them, then at us over and over and over until we pick up on what she is communicating.

As for Lily, she peacefully co-exists with her relentlessly energetic l’il sis. Luckily, Lily is an easy going smoosh of a dog whose greatest joys in life involve playing with her pals at the park and licking every human she meets when they aren’t looking.

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
