I'm having a super hard time picking my top three favorite photos of Sadie for the Corgi Butts 2012 Calendar!!! That's where you come in...I want to have a quick picture vote to see what pictures you like best! So please pick your three favorite pictures from the ones below:
Sadie has become rather psychotic with my aunt's pool. Why? Because she is DYING to "catch" the bubbles that come out of the jets. You may remember last summer when I dropped my phone in the pool as I was trying to capture Sadie's pool insanity...If not, here's the post :)
This summer, her drive to catch the bubbles has increased greatly. The second she is outside, she beelines right to the pool and starts barking and running back and forth on the side of the pool. I don't know whether to laugh or be annoyed!!! I've had to keep her on a leash, just because I don't know how daring she will be. If she jumps in the pool, she might rip the lining (it's an in-ground pool). And I don't think my aunt or uncle would like that! So I have to keep an eye on her.
When she's not barking her head off, she does enjoy swimming in the pool! Every time someone sees this for the first time, they're amazed at how good she is at swimming with those tiny little legs haha.
Here are some pictures of her most recent swimming adventure!
She has great balance!
MUST GET THE BUBBLESSSSSS!
We had enough of her barking, so my cousin took her in the pool. She's not too sure about this haha.
But she was a champ and swam back to the stairs like a pro!
As I (think) I've mentioned, or as many of you already know from Facebook, I've been dating someone for a few months now. The thing I was most worried about was how Sadie would react to him, and if he would like Sadie. Sadie has been my life for the past 5 years. We've been best buds, and I didn't want that to change.
Sadie is VERY protective of me. She even gets jealous when my mom hugs me. So I wasn't sure how she'd react to someone hugging and kissing me, etc. I'm happy to report, though, that my boyfriend loves Sadie, and Sadie loves him, too!
The first meeting was interesting. She was excited for a new person to come over, but then once she saw this person sitting close to me, and then taking me away, she wasn't too sure. Since then we've had a few more outings...to the lake, the dog park, etc. And for the most part things are fine. She does bark every once in awhile when he is hugging me, and she did end up sleeping right in between us one night lol. And of course, she gives me a biggggg guilt trip when I leave with him. But other than that, they're friends :)
He even took her to the park alone one day when I was at a doctor's appointment! Here are some pics he took:
She had a blast! And here's one from a day we all went to the lake by his house:
Did anyone else have an issue introducing their significant other and their dog? My boyfriend grew up where dogs stayed outside, so he is still trying to adjust to Sadie being in the house and sleeping on my bed...but hopefully things will be ok with that aspect eventually, too!
I recently got an iPhone, and have fallen in love...not only with the phone, but with the Hipstamatic App. It's this awesome app that has all these different films and lenses for the camera. It takes GREAT photos. And it's perfect for me when I'm not carrying around my giant DSLR. I've been able to snap some awesome pics. And you can even have prints made.
Naturally, most of my pictures have been of Sadie (and as you'll see, mostly of Sadie sleeping haha). So I wanted to share some of them with you! Until I formulate a proper post, I figured some nice pictures of my sweet Sadie would hold you over!!
And here are some of my favorite non-Sadie Hipstaprints:
