Sadie, Sadie, Pooping Lady

Sadie has arrived….she’s actually been here for a while, but with the holidays and all who has time to blog? (I also toy with the idea of blogging b/c do I really want to write about my life and happenings…does anyone really care…I do like the old school way of journaling…I love journals…I am babbling).
When we first picked Sadie up at the airport, I was so nervous! We waited for her arrival in the Baggage Claim office for Continental. When the steward brought her kennel to us, I didn’t really know what to do. I opened the door to the kennel, but she didn’t want to come out. She was so beautiful! I couldn’t believe she was mine!!! She was also rather larger than I thought she would be for a 9 week old puppy. We didn’t push her to come out of the kennel, so when we got to the car I took her out and laid her on my lap. Sadie was so soft and so calm…it was love at first lick
Once home, I took her out and she peed on the grass. I couldn’t believe how smart she is!! The breeder warned me that she may not eat or drink for a bit, and not to really worry. Sadie drank water right away and ate shortly afterwards. She laid with me and was so chill…my own puppy – and a girl puppy at that – my daughter!!

OK – fast forward 3 weeks…Sadie is doing well. We took her to the vet and she got a clean bill of health, along with a microchip and some cute holiday pictures. She gained 1 1/2 pounds in the first week and I cannot wait to see how much she has gained since then. She is getting bigger and fluffier everyday. At 13 weeks she is the typical puppy – running, playing, mouthing, nipping and peeing and pooping. Did I mention peeing and pooping?

Yeah, she pees outside and poops outside and then likes to follow that with doing the same inside. I seriously have to nip that in the butt…literally. She has her hyper moments when she thinks everything is a chew toy and thinks Gabriel is her “pal” because when standing up they are the same height. The boys like to walk her, which translates to me walking her and then letting the boys back into the house so Sadie can pay attention to the true matters at hand.

Sadie is calm, calmer than most puppies. Her one green eye makes her even more beautiful. She loves to play outside in the backyard and I truly see a happy, long life with my Sadie Lady (as my sons would say).
