Only Child Syndrome

I would love to have lots of little corgis running around. But I'm pretty sure Sadie would never let me bring home another dog. (Or any animal for that matter.) Since I adopted Sadie, it's been just the two of us...I haven't even dated anyone since I rescued her. Not sure if that is a coincidence or not, but that's a discussion for another blog! Haha. Needless to say, we have bonded, a lot. You could say we're both a little obsessed with each other. In a good way, I think.

Sadie is very protective of me, which I think is understandable. I am her Mama, and she doesn't want anything to happen to me, just like I don't want anything to happen to her...ever. Sadie loves when people come to visit, but she doesn't let them get too close to me. She didn't even like when my mom hugged me! I tend to worry about what she might do when I actually date someone again.

Sadie also doesn't like when I pet and/or talk to other animals. We are living with two cats now, and I sometimes pet them or say hello to them. And when this happens, I get the death stare from Sadie. I seriously think she is trying to burn me with her eyes. For the rest of the week, we are staying at my other aunt's house, watching her pets while they're out of town. They have a dog (golden retriever), a cat, and a bird. The poor dog is so depressed her humans left her, so I have to give her some attention. But the second I touch her, in swoops Sadie. Actually, "swoops in" makes it sound like she glides in nicely, while in fact she comes barreling into me, pushing the other dog (who is about 5 times bigger than her) out of the way.

So I'm pretty sure Sadie will be an only child...just like me! Maybe it was meant to be that way then. I never wanted siblings, either! And I'm perfectly happy with it just being me and Sadie.


  1. she's an adorable only child!! Koda will be an only child too although it would be fun to have two dogs and give him a little companionship but he doesn't like other dogs and he is possessive of us too (and I can't imagine another dog in the bed with us, LOL)

    Happy Thanksgiving!


  2. Thanks :)

    Yeah, it would be great to have another dog! Sadie loves playing with other dogs, but she doesn't like sharing Mama's attention!!!

  3. Aw, yeah Freya is ok with Cloud because she grew up with him but anyone else is an issue for her.
