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's....trepidation....at 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!
