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!

Lazy Sunday Morning in Fairmount, January 2012

 

Sadie and Lily often nap in a pile on their favorite chair, covered by their favorite blanket. Lily is watching the street. Sadie is snoozing. Both are resting for the playground visit that is planned for the afternoon. MM & RY 2012

Sadie's Window

Sadie's Window

Sadie lives in her window several hours each day. We try to keep it smudge-free, but that is a difficult challenge since she really does enjoy that spot. Most of our neighbors will support our claim that Sadie attends to footsteps, car noises, and sudden thumps of all kinds from her window perch. She closely watches all of the people entering and leaving their homes in her line of sight. She has a keen ear for activities at the bus stop and local restaurant too. Her responses to these stimuli include her trademark low pitch grumble growl, her sharp “what do you think you are doing/who do you think you are walking by my house” bark, and what we call bark-fest.

Bark-fest occurs several times per day. The mail carrier is almost always on the receiving end of bark-fest. Only a vigorous morning playground¬† visit can prevent it. The folks who drop off restaurant fliers in our mail slot regularly get a dose of bark-fest. Most of all, our dog-walking friends enjoy Sadie’s bark-fest. Some of her friends will hop up on our stoop in the hopes that Sadie will come out just at that moment. And, every once in a while she does! Her best friend at the moment is Max, a two-year old cutie who is smaller than Sadie. He adores her and surprisingly, she likes him too! Through all of Sadie’s noisy and smudgy window behavior, Lily-the-Smoosh naps in her chair. MM & RY 2011

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 Рat least as far as Sadie and Lily are concerned)!

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.
