Last week, we were housesitting (and dog/cat/bird-sitting) for my aunt. She has a pool, which is always nice when the weather is super hot! So Sadie and I (and their dog, Harlie) enjoyed a nice lazy weekend by the pool. I took some pictures of the dogs, and some came out really well, I think! As you can see, Sadie is quite confused as to what she should do after that first step...she just keeps sticking her paws out and feeling nothing but water. So I had to pick her up and put her in so she could swim a bit. But she wasn't much of a fan of that lol. And I wasn't able to get a picture of her swimming. (When I tried to video her swimming, I dropped my cell phone in the pool. Awesome. At least it wasn't the DSLR though!) Enjoy the pics! We hope you are keeping cool this summer!

I bought Sadie a wading pool at PetSmart recently (it even has bones as a design element haha)...but she just doesn't seem to get it. I will put her in there on the hottest of days, and she just jumps out! Silly girl. She is still slightly confused by the actual swimming pool as well (but that's another post entirely -- to come soon!). Here are a few pictures of her in the wading pool. Note her confused facial expression!
"Momma!!! I don't get it!!!!"
"Is this just a big water bowl??"

Next month, it will be 4 years since I adopted Sadie. Right after I adopted her, I was scared. Scared of the responsibility of owning a dog. Scared because I thought maybe I adopted her to "cure" some of my own issues. I got over that pretty quickly, though. Adopting Sadie has been the best thing I've ever done in my life. I love her more than I ever thought I could love any creature, and coming home to her every day makes my life so much better. I thought I'd share some pictures of us through the years...

I was going through old pictures, and found the first ones I ever took at Sadie. When I got her, they said she was between 1-2 years old. She must have been much closer to 1 year or younger though, because she has grown a lot since I got her! I don't even realize it until I see these pics though.

Another brief passage from Jodi Picoult's newest book caught my eye and I wanted to share because this time it's specifically about corgis!! :)
"When someone bought a corgi puppy, I offered facts along with Puppy Chow. (It's related to the dachshund! Its name is Welsh and means dwarf dog!)"
It made me happy she mentioned corgis!! Hope everyone is having a good weekend.
