Have you noticed that I like alliteration in my subject lines? I'm such an English major/writer/editor...
This subject line is related to two things:
1. Sadie won a contest! YAY!!! Thanks to Dozer, Coop, Dottie, and Nancy over at Our Life: Dozer and Coop!! There was a contest in honor of their 400th (way to go!) post, and Miss Sadie was the lucky winner. We look forward to our prize! Sadie LOVES opening packages that are for her. I will be sure to take pictures, and maybe a video! :) Thank you! (We never win anything haha.)
2. Sadie is quite the jumper. I have wondered for awhile if this is a corgi thing, or if it's more true of her other possible breed(s). And when I say she is a jumper, I mean she JUMPS. High. It looks like she is on a mini trampoline. She can jump up to about my chest. I'm about 5'4....and she has short corgi legs!!! How does she jump so high? She does the most jumping when I come home from work. It's just too funny because she just springs straight up from the ground. Maybe the short legs help?? I need to get this on video, so you can all see it. Whenever someone meets her for the first time, and they see her do this, they are shocked and amazed. Do your corgis jump high?
Here's a funny story about how I discovered her jumping talent. When I first adopted her and had to go to work, I put her in the bathroom with a baby gate up in the doorway. I wasn't sure how trained she was at the time, so I figured this was the safest bet. Keep in mind that when I got Sadie, she was smaller than she is now. Not by a lot, but she was definitely smaller. So I leave her and go to work and miss her all day. I get home and look into the bathroom. The baby gate is still intact...but there is no Sadie in the bathroom! Then I see her. Laying on the couch!!!! She jumped over the baby gate, without even knocking it over, and chilled on the couch all day. What a stinker! And after that day, the baby gate went in the closet and was never used again.
