Little Miss Sadie

Ammon and I were yard sale-ing a couple Saturdays ago.  We stopped at this crappy yard sale.  All they  had was boxes of junk.  As we turned around to leave, I saw this puppy on the porch.  She wanted to come down the steps but was timid about it because she was so small.  I made a comment about how cute the puppy was and the lady in charge of the yard sale told me that I could take her for free.  When I heard that, I went over and picked up this fuzzy, white, floppy eared puppy.  It was love.  Mutual love.  I fell in love with her right there on the spot and she did the same.  She was obsessed with me.  I asked Ammon if we could keep her and it was obvious that he felt like I put him on the spot.  The lady wrote down the name and phone number of her friend.  (her friend was the one trying to get rid of the puppy)  I told her that we would discuss it and I'd call her later.  I said goodbye to the puppy and got in the car.  We drove 30 yards to the stop sign and I couldn't go any farther.  Ammon agreed that we could take her and I made him turn the car around.  I stepped out of the car and the woman laughed that I was back so soon.  She said, "I had a feeling you'd be back."  : )  She emptied a small box and I loaded up the puppy and off we went.  We were told that she didn't have any of her shots, and that she was a pomeranian, chihuahua mix.

Introducing...  Sadie!!




She is a sweetheart and really LOVES us.  She wants lots of love and attention which is a good thing because she has two little boys chasing her around every chance they get.  We're still in the middle of housebreaking her which, I'm not gonna lie, sucks.  I get frustrated in the mornings when I have to clean her cage and the linens in the cage.  She's 9 weeks old, maybe 10 weeks now.  Her appearance has changed a lot since we got her.  She used to have adorable floppy ears and now they stick straight up.  I wasn't a fan at first but now, it's growing on me.  Life with a puppy is stressful but, seeing the way my boys love her makes up for all that.

Oh my word CUTE. I am not jealous of the house breaking but so jealous of the pup that is for sure. She is adorable.

Thanks everyone! She is still VERY loved and the potty training is going alright. She adds a lot of responsibility. But adds a lot of love too. : )
