Princess Sadie

The other day, Karen from Bailey the Corgi told me that Sadie's name means "Princess." How fitting is that? She is certainly a princess and acts like royalty!!! The past few days, I have found her sleeping in some interesting positions.

Her new favorite thing is to sleep on top of any pillow that is just lying around. She tends to think they are placed there for her. She looks pretty royal, doesn't she?

Here she is on a different couch pillow (sorry for the quality; these are from my phone):

I have been trying to get pictures of her on all the different couches, because she moves from one to the next throughout the day haha.

Then, the other day I came out to find her laying like this on the couch...Take a look at her back legs:

How is that comfortable?? Oh Sadie, you are my silly little girl.

Oh, and I haven't forgotten about the surprise. We are going to have a giveaway here soon! I just have to organize some things first :)

And then I discovered it is from this YouTube video:

Hi, how cute is that???? And the corgi's name is Twinky. PERFECTION.

Also, stay tuned to the blog, because I have a special surprise for you all coming up soon. Why? Because we officially have 60 followers!!! (Most likely I have more that aren't showing up or following through the Google thing, but right now I am basing this surprise on that total!)

Sharing Sadie's Story

Sadie is featured on another website! Lovely Paige of Dexter Diary has started up a new blog called CorgiPals. Go check it out! She calls it "a blog dedicated to giving a voice to Corgis in need." So how could you not want to take a look? Besides featuring wonderful charities and fundraisers, she is also featuring stories about rescued corgis. We were lucky enough to be the first feature! I know most of you know our story already, but please take a trip over to the site if you get a chance and read our post.

Other than that, I have a lot of things to post about...I just haven't had the time! I hope to post more soon :) We hope you are all doing well, and we're so happy that you are here to follow our journey!

Who rescued whom?

I’ve been having a rough time lately. Just typical life stuff and stress. When I was talking about it with a friend yesterday, I mentioned how all I want to do is snuggle with Sadie. This is usually my go-to de-stressor. Corgis make excellent cuddlers, and Sadie in particular loves to snuggle. The night after I adopted Sadie, I called my friend crying. I was worried I was adopting a dog for the wrong reasons. I was scared I couldn’t do it. That I’d be a bad dog momma. At the time, I had just moved into my own apartment, so it was just me and Sadie. I hoped a dog would keep me company. I was worried I thought a dog might fix all my problems, but instead just give me new ones to worry about. My friend reassured me, and luckily I got over those fears. Sadie became my best friend.

Sadie was the first pet that is truly mine. She depends on me. She loves me. I can see it in her eyes. That may sound insane, but it’s true. Like when we’re at the dog park, and she scans the crowd for me. She looks scared if she can’t find me at first, but when she finally sees me, her eyes light up, and she comes bounding over to me. It makes me smile every time.

Every time I come home, she shakes her little nub like crazy and jumps up and down. What human will ever be this excited to see me??? And when we get into bed at night, she wants to be as close to me as possible. I cannot imagine what my life would be like without her. I probably would have been a lot worse off in Boston if I didn’t adopt her. She is the best little girl in the world, and I love her with my entire heart.

Yes, Sadie is a rescue dog, but truth be told, she’s the one that rescued me. And I will be eternally grateful for that. I didn’t post anything about Valentine’s Day. I am not a fan of the holiday. But I wanted to post this to express my love for Sadie. She will always be my Valentine, and she will always be my little girl. Thank you, Sadie, for rescuing me.

My Dog Has Outsmarted Me!

It's amazing how dogs catch onto routines so quickly. Sadie knows that when I wash my face at night, I'm getting ready for bed, and she'll go wait for me on our bed. Or in the morning, when I brush my teeth, she knows I'm going to be leaving for work (or somewhere) soon. Every morning, she comes into the bathroom with me. For the longest time, she would then follow me back to our room where I'd get ready. Sadie stays in my room during the day. Because I'm still living with family, she doesn't have free roam of the house when I'm away. Usually she will behave, but sometimes, she decides to pull out all the trash or something equally annoying.

She knows that once I get her in that room, I'm going to leave her in there. So she's decided to NOT follow me back to my room after I shower. Instead she will lay on the couch in the living room. This then forces me to coax her back into my bedroom before I leave for work. This used to be as easy as asking her if she wanted a cookie. She'd come running, because what corgi says no to food??? But my smart little corgi has put two and two together. She knows that the cookie means she has to go in my room. So guess what? SHE IS REFUSING TO COME GET A COOKIE!

Oh trust me, she wants that cookie. I see her contemplating the ramifications. She will look the other way, and then keep checking out of the corner of her eye to see if it's still there. How has my dog become smarter than me??? So now I basically have to pick her up or REALLY trick her with the cookie. Once she's off the couch, she will follow me if I have the cookie in my hands. It's just a matter of getting her off the couch. We will both be happy when we get our own place again, just for the fact that we won't have to play these silly games! What a punk!!

"Who, me?"

Corgi Cuteness

The other day, we received something fun in the mail! A lovely corgi magnet made by Paige over at Dexter Diary. She used Sadie as the model/inspiration for this tricolor magnet, but she also makes every other corgi fur variety and sells them over on her Etsy page!! They are super cute, and I think it looks nice next to our Christmas card :) So go check out her Etsy page and her blog as well, because Dexter is adorable and who can resist another cute corgi??? (She has some awesome Mario Brothers magnets as well!)

Pukey Puppy :(

Sadie has woken me up the past two mornings throwing up on my bed. Good times. Why do they always puke so early in the morning? And why is it always on the bed??

I think everything is ok with her. I mean, after she throws up she seems fine, and is eating and pooping as usual. I'm keeping an eye on her. I'm not sure what the problem is though.

This may be a little TMI, but she has puked up unchewed pieces of potato each time. Maybe that's the issue? I don't know! Any advice/thoughts?

I just feel so bad for her, because she gets so upset after it happens and tries to cover it up. Poor thing. I hope her tummy feels better soon.
