Sadie has been unusually grumpy lately. And very vocal. I'm not sure if it's just because it's the winter, and she doesn't get as much exercise, or she's just a brat. It's funny though, because she didn't make any noise for the longest time, and now she won't shut up haha. She's getting pretty predictable in her brattiness though...
Whenever I'm sitting at the table, eating or doing whatever, she gets mad that she can't sit on my lap. So she barks at me. And she gets all worked up usually, and then starts sneezing. And barking. And really, I find it hard not to laugh, which just makes her more mad haha. I can practically hear her as a bratty teenager when she barks at me: "MOM!!!!!! BUT I WANT TO SIT ON YOUR LAPPPPPPP!! MOMMMMMM!!!!!!!"
This is a new thing...every night, we lay in bed and watch TV. Sadie always ends up sprawled in the center of the bed, taking up more room than I am...so when I actually need to go to sleep, I move her over so I can at least get under the covers. But for the past couple of weeks, she growls when I try to move her! The brat!! I don't let her get away with this, as I don't want her snapping at anyone if they try to move her, but it doesn't seem to be letting up at all. Any suggestions? I don't know what her problem is...I mean, I guess she is just comfortable and doesn't want me to move her. But too bad!
Another new thing she does is tries to distract me before I get ready for work every morning. She does so by getting that red squeaky ball you see in the previous entry and squeaking it incessantly. She loves those squeaky balls! So every morning, I have been playing fetch with her. If only she knew how much I'd rather be at home than be at work!!!!
And god forbid I change our routine in ANY way (such as watching TV in the family room instead of my bedroom)!!! Poor Sadie doesn't know what to do with herself then, and she just cries until I restore balance in her world.
(I might sound like these things annoy me, but in all honesty, I think they're freaking adorable. I just love how her personality is really showing now. I think she was so scared to be a dog before.)
Oh, also! As a birthday present to myself, I bought a really nice camera (a starter DSLR), so hopefully you will be seeing some awesome pictures on here once I figure out how to use it!!! :)
