Over the weekend, my dad was in town, so we had the family over to the house. Sadie is always very excited when people come over, because that means more people to pet her and give her attention! Not to mention all the food that could possibly fall under the table at dinnertime haha. It’s funny how Sadie acts when everyone is over though. She gets super excited when everyone first arrives, and makes sure to get some petting from everyone (while looking back at me to make sure I approve). Then once the excitement settles down and everyone has been there for a little while, Sadie is glued to my side. She follows me everywhere. I think it’s because it’s harder for her to keep tabs on me when there are several other people there. She wants to make sure I don’t go anywhere. So for most of the day, she was laying on top of me or walking closely behind me. This also means that Sadie doesn’t sleep on days when we have company. God forbid she closes her eyes and something exciting happens!!! And because of that, she is one grumpy pup when the house clears out! She was so tired on Sunday night, and even Monday morning, she went right back into bed after her walk and breakfast.
She does this at the dog park, too. She doesn’t always stick right by my side, as she likes to play with the other dogs, but every few minutes, she will scan the park to make sure she knows where I am. It’s rather adorable, really. When she can’t find me right away, she looks very nervous, and then she sees me and her eyes really do light up! It’s so sweet, and really makes me smile. She’ll even come bounding over to me sometimes and jump up on me just to remind me that I’m her Mama and she loves me.
This little furkid never ceases to put a smile on my face. :)
