Sadie at 4mos
Sadie, Oh Sadie! We have come to the conclusion that Sadie is an acronym for Sly And Devilishly Into Everything. She is a true puppy who just looks for things to get into, chew up and destroy!
We got Sadie when we were contacted by a friend (yes, we still call him that) who asked us to contact a young couple about their Newf puppy. He knew we had a Newf puppy and thought we could offer some assistance. We agreed to do this and after a lengthy conversation, we clearly realized that they were actually looking to re-home Sadie. They had come to realize that they had not done proper research and jumped into a breed that did not fit their family. After talking and visiting, we agreed to get Sadie out of their home with the thought we would find her a home that was a better fit. Oh we did that alright, as she never left our home!
This is where we decided we had probably gotten in over our head as Sadie will get into most everything. We are constantly having to get stuff away from her that she has managed to get hold of, no matter how careful we are at keeping stuff picked up. Heaven forbid you should forget to close a bathroom door, as Sadie will be in there in minutes looking for some good old trash digging fun! If there isn’t any trash, no prob, where is that roll of TP anyway? It’s alway a bunch of fun to chew up!
Of course with three puppies we now had some serious training ahead of ourselves! But of course that’s part of what this whole blog is about.
