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 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 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

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)!
