Sadie Sitting

This is Sadie.

She belongs to our good friends, Josh and Tami. They had to go out-of-town this weekend, so we volunteered to watch Sadie for the weekend. Hey--what's one more dog at our house, right?

Well, this used to be no big deal. See, Sadie and Gus used to be the same size:

They would wrestle around, play bitey-face, and have a great old time. Then Gus got bigger:

and the play time kind of came to a screeching halt. Sadie's not so sure about the big dogs. In fact, we watched her about a year ago BW (before waldo), and Sadie spent most of the 2 days cowering in her crate (this picture was taken during that time, and I had to pose Sadie).

So, imagine Josh and Tami' Sadie's upcoming 5-day stay at the Walton Hotel!

Well, turns out their worries were unfounded:

I wouldn't say they are all best friends, but it certainly has been good! She's only spent nights in her crate, and in the morning she comes up and sleeps on the floor with the boys.

Sadie has a great trick that I thought I'd share. She is a singer! Sadie's mom Tami is a music teacher and an operatic-style singer. One year at Christmas, Tami was singing the Hallelujah Chorus in her house, and Sadie started doing this with her. Now she does it all the time! Pretty funny. Maybe she should take it on the road. I can see it now: Sadie the Singing Schnauzer!

What an adorable picture of the 2 giants and the little one Sadie!
And yes, Sadie could start making CD's

We pup-sitting too but since they live two houses down, our guests sleep at their own house at night.

But that could be because there isn't room for 4 big dogs and 2 humans on the same bed at night.

It's always fun to have an agreeable visitor. I love the shot of all three - it's like a sizing chart. :)

Looks like little Sadie is overdue for an appearance on American Idol!

Sadie's accompaniment isn't too bad either:-) The three dogs look so cute side by side, take your pick of size. How nice that they all get on so well together.

That is hilarious!! I met a little Schnauzer this weekend named Maggie and she was very fun but more interested in sniffing things than playing with me. :) Hope you all had a great weekend!!

Sadie has a talent and we expect to hear of her at the Met very soon. The three of them look very cute together.
