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!

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 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

Sadie and Lily love to play at a place we call the playground. It’s a corner of Fairmount Park that has been taken over by dogs in the mornings and afternoons near the Art Museum in Philadelphia. Today we were mostly on our own. Lily enjoyed thrashing on the dirt. Sadie investigated all of the smells and scouted out our route. At times Lily, our stubborn boxer, decided she did not want to go. Everyone had a great time because spring is in the air. Here are some photos of our walk. 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 – 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
