Granddog Sitting

Hi everyone! I have been granddog sitting for the past week and let me tell you...it has been a chore!  My youngest son is at a church technology conference and asked if we would watch his puppy.  Sadie is a 9 month old Siberian Husky.  I forgot how active 9 month old dogs could be!  Our two labs run our property, but Ms Sadie is not accustomed to wide open spaces and dense woods.  This morning she high tailed it to a neighbor and proceeded to torment their miniature horse named Sugar.  Bless Sugar's heart. She was trying to be neighborly, but from what I was told, Sadie was about to get kicked.  I bet Sadie wouldn't head back that way again!  Anyway, all thoughts of finishing my next blog post went out the door and I have been enjoying playing with this pretty girl for the past week.  I must say that even though she looks quite innocent, she has eaten a pair of tennis shoes, knocked over my pumpkin topiares, torn up a pillow, pulled the buttons off an outdoor cushion and committed several unmentionable acts on the garage floor!  I purchased her an adorable red plaid head band which she promptly tried to eat.  When that effort failed, she attempted to drown it in the creek.  Sadie came back soaking wet with her head band around her neck, looking at me with those gorgeous, blue eyes! So friends, I'll be back next week with my normal blog posting.  Until then, I have a dog to chase!

Blessings from Lynda and Sadie at Still Woods Farmhouse

  1. Awwww...Sadie looks so innocent and sweet! I can identify, I often dogsit my granddog Tulo, a hulking 100+ pound English Cream Retriever. My house is small and he can knock everything off my coffee table with his swooshy tail! But we love him.

    I had a male Siberian Husky when I was in my early twenties, blue eyes just like Sadie. I rescued him at 2 years old. For the life of me I had no idea why anyone would give him up. Very sweet and well behaved...he did have a penchant for running away when we had snow but never went far. Sadly I had to move to another place that wouldn't allow dogs. I was lucky to find a family who loved him at first sight and he had acres to run on. A real blessing. I'll never forget Niki and will treasure the few years I had with him. Enjoy Sadie, she's a beauty! :)

    1. Hi Jane,
      Sadie is adorable, but full of energy! Tulo sounds like a hunk! We had a beautful chow-husky mix dog named Prancer (Santa brought her to the boys) and she was about 120! A friend saw her for the first time through a window and thought she was a calf! We loved that dog dearly and still do even though she has been gone many years. We might need a few of your Siberian Husky tricks you used with your rescue, Niki. Have a great week!

    1. We enjoyed having Sadie here and I am kind of sad not seeing her around since she left! Loved those pretty blue eyes. Have a wonderful weekend!
