It's true. My Sadie is a bit of a fatty. Haha. It's a very good thing that the weather is finally getting nicer, because she needs to get to the dog park and run more! I've tried taking her on some runs with me around the neighborhood, but she poops out pretty quickly. Sure, it could be those short little legs...or the fact that she runs like a bunny. I mean, that must be tiring! But still, she needs to get in shape!
I've noticed lately that she has become far too conditioned to the sounds of food in the house. She could literally be passed out on my bed or the couch, in a deep sleep, but if that fridge opens, the ears perk up and off she goes to find out what treat may be making its way into her belly! She doesn't even hesitate. She's off and running.
And if you pick up a bag of chips, watch out! These are her kryptonite! That crinkle of the bag is music to her ears, and she hauls ass, no matter where she is or what she is doing. It's actually rather amusing sometimes.
And of course, Sadie knows the words "Are you hungry?" or "Do you want dinner?" Her ears perk up and she starts panting. And if we are outside for a walk, she speeds up because she knows there is food in her future! Oh Sadie, my little fatty :)
