Grumpy Girl

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 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!!! :)

Sadie's Recipe

I think I mentioned in the Halloween post that when we went on the doggie costume parade, Sadie had her picture taken for a doggie cookbook...But I may have forgotten to mention that. Anyway, we received the cookbook before the holidays, but I have just been forgetting to post it! Each page is a different dog (in their Halloween costume) and each dog has their own recipe. You could even add a little bio to the facing page (which I, of course, did!). The company that produced the books allows you to submit your dog for future editions on their website. So if you're interested, the website is They donate a portion of sales to various animal shelters as well, which is great!

So here are Sadie's bio and recipe! Hoping you can read these...I need to make a proper scan, but figured I could just post the proof I had for now...(EDIT: If you click on the photos, it should bring up a larger version that you can actually read!)

So. Cute.

Found this randomly on the Internet ( I'd share with all my corgi friends. Sounds about right, huh? :) Things have been good for Sadie and me. Nothing too exciting to report. I have some things in the works that may allow some more time at home with Sadie (which would be amazing). And I am starting grad school in a few weeks. Excited and nervous for that!

Other than that, we've been doing a lot of cuddling since it has been so cold. Sadie is my own personal space heater!! And I'm still a little sick. Ugh. Went to the doctor and got some antibiotics, but still not feeling 100% yet. I hope everyone else is doing well!

Corgi kisses from Sadie!!!

Well, Hello 2010!

Hello there! I have been MIA lately, because I was on a mini-vacation in my home state of Florida. My parents still live there, so I went to see my mom for a few days. I had to leave Sadie here in NY though with my aunt and uncle. I was very sad to leave her. I really wish I could bring her with me just becomes more of a hassle than it's worth really. But it's ok, because she had a great time with my aunt and uncle, and was as happy as ever to see me come home. It is so wonderful to come home to a jumping, butt-wiggling doggie, isn't it?

Unfortunately I was sick for most of my trip, and I am still pretty congested. Seems like quite a few of you have gotten sick in the new year, too...what a way to start 2010, huh?? Hope everyone is feeling better soon.

Here are some holiday pictures for you all to enjoy...

Last year's Christmas card...I forgot about this one in a previous post!

New Year's Day dinner! At least I was able to enjoy this before I got sick!!
