Sadie turned 6 years old on October 10th. She (and Nik) have been in my life for almost 5 years now and I love them both very much.
|"Are we there yet?"|
|"How about now?"|
Now we have to be careful with Sadie at the dog park as she has been known to run so hard and fast that she has worn down the skin on her pads until they were bleeding. For looking so tough Sadie is pretty delicate and her feet especially so. We make a point to have her take breaks and do some leash walk while we check her feet.
She doesn't love this, as she would rather run and play, but she is a good sport about it. She will walk nicely with us even in the park so it can't be to terrible.
And after a short break she gets to go back to running and having fun.
I mean just look at the silly happy face!
There was a little white pit bull puppy. Sadie didn't really seem to care about him but Simon and the puppy played a lot.
|Looks like a game of football.|
After we had burned off some of their energy we headed to the farmers' market. The dogs got all dressed up; they both had backpacks and Sadie also had a tutu and necklaces. You might be thinking "How is this in line with doing things Sadie likes?" Well; other than she doesn't mind it so much, she loves people and strangers are a lot more likely to love on her when she is dressed up than normal.
|"Mom the sun is in our eyes this is the best you get."|
|"Why are we stopped? Lets go go go."|
Simon was still super hyper so his backpack was also to try and help take the edge off his energy.
|More treats please.|
|Sadie "Hey look I'm sitting give the treats to me".|
|Sadie "Simon Sit or we wont get treats"|
