I Wish I Were a Little Bit Taller

Sometimes I don't think Sadie realizes how small she is, like when she barks her head off at giant dogs that could literally eat her if they tried. She thinks she's incredibly tough and can take them. I do not think she can. Or maybe she is just a punk/bully lol.

But other times, I think she realizes she is short and wants to be taller. For instance, one of our neighbors has a stone ledge/wall on one side of their house that progressively steps down in height. You can see it in this picture:

Right now, since nothing has bloomed yet, the wall is pretty bare. Oftentimes, we walk back home passing this wall, and every time we do, Sadie jumps up on the highest part and walks the rest of the way on the wall. It always cracks me up, because she seems to happy and walks all proud when she is up there. Like, "look at me ma, I'm tall!!!" I wish I had pictures of this. But for now you'll just have to imagine it :)

That little girl never ceases to make me smile.

Food > Mama

So for the second time now, I have come home after a long day at work only to be completely ignored by Sadie. No, she's not asleep somewhere and not aware that I am home. She is in the kitchen (which I walk into from the garage), and she sees me walk in the door. She glances quickly over at me, and then focuses her attention on what is clearly more important than her own mother...FOOD. She is sitting at my uncle's feet, watching him eat, hoping for a morsel of his yummy food. More times than not, she gets some of his food, which is why her focus cannot be broken, not even to greet her mother!

The first time she did this, I was so upset. I look forward to her jumping up and down when I get home, showing her overwhelming excitement for my arrival. But even when I called her name, she wouldn't move. She would quickly glance at me and then focus her eyes right back on the food. Now when it happens, it's pretty amusing. She wouldn't leave her place until all his food was consumed. Then I heard her walking to the bedroom to finally say hello to me. What a punk!! I see how it is...Food is clearly more important than I am!

Something We Love

I wanted to share this product with you all, because I am a big fan of it. When I first adopted Sadie, I got her a basic tag to hang on her collar. But when I put the tag on her collar, she froze. She wouldn't move when the metal tag hit the metal of her collar. Well, this was obviously a problem!! I didn't know what to do. I tried those plastic things that fit around the perimeter of the tag to help silence it. They didn't really work...I also found this little thing that attaches to the collar and holds the tags, but it was kind of clunky and I didn't like it. Then, I bought a collar from L.L. Bean with her name and my number embroidered on it. I do actually recommend these collars, because it is pretty cool! But I also like to change Sadie's collar too much because I get bored lol, so that one only solved the problem temporarily.

When I was at my friend's house, I noticed her aunt's dogs had these awesome tags that slid onto the collar. It was perfect! I needed to know where she got them. So she got me the information and I ordered one right away. It's called a CollarTag from Boomerang Tags. They come in different sizes and different types. We have the CollarTag for Adjustable Nylon Collars in size Medium. I am in love with this tag!! It was inexpensive, and it seriously does not fall off of any collar! I have also never had a problem getting it on any of Sadie's collars.

You can put whatever you want on the tag...Ours has Sadie's name, my name, and my phone number. I've had this one for several years and it has held up exceptionally well. I'll have to get a new one soon, only because my phone number is going to change!

Here are some pictures of Sadie with her CollarTag!

P.S. I am in no way associated with Boomerang, or have been asked to post about these tags. I just love them and wanted to tell you all about them! :) Oh, and they're on Facebook, too!
