Vote for Sadie!

Today is the last day to vote for the Corgi Butts Calendar!!! Sadie has two pictures among the finalists :) I should have posted about this sooner, but things have been crazy here...You know, Hurricane Irene and all. We are fine and have power restored but things are still a mess here. We hope you're all doing well, too!

So vote for Miss Sadie! I would be honored if she made it into the calendar this year!

As you can see, she is number 19 and 23. So vote away!!! Thanks :) Go here to vote!

A Lesson in "Read the Fine Print"

The other day, I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, when I saw this:

I immediately stopped because clearly I knew that face! I was very confused...I follow the ASPCA on Facebook, but why was Sadie's face being used?? I clicked on the link, which brought me to this page:

Well there she is again!!! At this point, I was a bit freaked out. Then I clicked on the main page...

Holy crap!!! I linked to the original post on Facebook, saying I was confused as to why Sadie was on the page, but it was also pretty cool that she was all over their site. Some friends replied, mentioning it was probably because I entered her picture in a contest...And sure enough, when I went back to look at the "fine print" on that contest, it said:

"By submitting your text/photo in this contest, you give the ASPCA an irrevocable, perpetual royalty-free right to use your name/text/photo for any purposes to promote the ASPCA’s mission of providing effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States."

Well then...I guess I should have read that. It's possible I DID read that, but didn't think much of it. After I figured this all out, I became less freaked out by it all and more flattered that they actually selected my picture, and that Sadie was used because she looked happy! If my baby's face can help raise money for animals in need, then I'm certainly ok with this. But I need to be sure to read all the fine print before entering her in contests!!! Haha. My little girl is famous!!!! :)

 (These links are all still active, by the way, so you can still see Sadie in all her glory lol.)

Who wants to win a prize?????

Like I promised, we have a giveaway!!!! The lovely people at Cesar contacted me and offered me some samples, so I happily accepted. Sadie was very excited when we received not one, but two packages, in the mail! And when I took out all the goodies, she was even more thrilled :)

We have been enjoying our samples, and now we want to let one lucky reader enjoy some as well! So what exactly will you be receiving???? Take a look!

Sadie inspected the goods to make sure you were receiving top quality products!
This is the goodie bag you'll receive!
And here's all that's inside...Two bags of treats, 7 types of "Canine Cuisine," and an awesome shirt that says "Small Dog, Big Love." (Our shirt says, "Go Small or Go Home" and I've worn it several times already!!)
"Wait, Mom, I need to smell this one more time to make sure it's ok..."
"What? This isn't for me????"
"Not cool, Mom."
Close up of the treat bag, which offers three different flavored treats. You'll receive two bags of the Softies Medley. Sadie approves of all three flavors.
She wasn't too thrilled about sitting here waiting for me to take this picture before she could inhale these treats though! Haha.

Sadie has been eating the Canine Cuisine every night mixed into her dry food, and she loves it! I just wish there was an easier way to save them, since she doesn't eat it all in one shot. We've just been putting them in tupperwares. Sadie likes all the flavors though! Not that she is very picky when it comes to food...but still :) We are happy to have been contacted about this, and we are even happier to share the love with one of you! You'll get a special surprise from us as well in the package :)

All you have to do is comment on this entry by next Monday, August 15, to be entered to win. A winner will be chosen using, and your goodies will be on their way to you ASAP! Leave your email address in your comment, so I know how to contact you if you win! Good luck!!! :)

Rise and Shine, Mama!!!!

When I first adopted Sadie, she did not understand what sleeping in meant. This was a problem for someone like me, who is not a morning person AT ALL. She used to wake me up, without fail, at 5 am every morning. Fun times, let me tell you. I'd go back to sleep, but it was never enjoyable to walk downstairs at 5 am half asleep to pick up her poop -- especially not during Boston winters!

One Christmas, Sadie and I flew down to Florida and stayed with my Grandma and mom for the holiday. This was Sadie's first official vacation! And boy did she know it! She slept in. She didn't wake up until I woke up. She somehow knew it wasn't a normal day haha. I hoped this would continue when we got home...and it did!! And if she woke up earlier, I would tell her it was too early. Then she would sigh and go back to sleep! Silly girl.

This past year, Sadie got a little chubby, and slept in even later. (Her weight loss will be featured in an upcoming post!) But all of a sudden, she has had enough of sleeping late again! Ughhhh. I think she is waking up earlier because she lost weight and has more energy (and is probably hungry in the morning). But now she is beyond aggressive about getting me up lol.

The second I roll over to see what time it is in the morning, Sadie bounces up. I try to do this time check subtlety without her seeing my eyes open, but that dog just KNOWS it's happening. And no matter what time it is, it's all over for me...First she puts her entire body, nose first, under my pillow to push my head up. When that doesn't work, she barks in my ear a few times for good measure. She also jumps over my body (and on top of it) a few times...But when all else fails, she pulls my comforter off of me! She grabs the corner in her mouth and pulls. Punk!!! She knows I have to take that comforter off to get out of bed!

You know, sometimes having a smart dog is not that fun haha.

Does your pup wake you up or let you sleep in???

***ATTENTION ALL FOLLOWERS!!! Stay tuned to the blog this week for a special giveaway!! You could be the winner! :)***
