My Favorite Things: Sadie Edition

just a few of my favorite things. . .

The way she thumps her tail when Maggie is getting attention. She may be in the other room but her tail thumps against the floor in rythmic joy. I hear it through the walls & it makes me smile.

The way she waits until Hurley & Maggie's wrestling over a toy dissolves into bitey face and then makes her move. She sneaks her snout into the mix, grabs the toy & does her best to retreat to a safe haven without being noticed. It is sneaky. It is quick. And she almost never gets away with it. Hurley or Maggie catch her within a few steps and she almost always relinquishes the toy without a protest. But those times when she decides to hang on? Those are magic.

The way running to the tent has become a routine part of any training. I think she does it because it makes me laugh.

That her favorite sleeping spot is a laundry basket full of clothes.

Zoomies. 'Nuff said.

  5. Those magic moments do so much for the mental health of the humans living with the dogs. They are worth every minute and penny they take.

  6. So sweet! I love the remote tail thumpies, esp. as they are in response to someone else getting petted. What ever is going through their minds?
