My Auntie Sadie...

It’s my turn to write, so I’m going to tell you about my Auntie Sadie. She is my hero! She is so big and smart. She gets to go out and help Grammy with the horses, and used to help with the goats. She even gets to go out of the pastures sometimes, though I don’t think that is with permission. She catches all sorts of different fuzzies, and even birds!

I’ve followed her around and watching her since I was a little pup. She’s always gentle with us and takes care of us as if we were her own. I don’t know why Mama hates her so much. She is always in her face and gets upset whenever we play with her, but both BG and I totally adore her. She’s taught us a lot of things.

She’s really smart, too! I heard Grammy telling someone that Auntie Sadie had learned to do the herding and all the helper dog stuff just by watching Mama and Grandma Mist do it. I guess she had to be pretty smart just to live the first several months of her life.

Auntie Sadie told me that she was found out in the fields when she was about 4 months old. She doesn’t remember to much before then. She had already been spayed, but she had been dropped, or gotten lost, and was all matted and scrawny and starved. The people that found her, advertised but didn’t get an answer, so they took her to a vet, got her shots, and got her all taken care of.

I’ve got to go for now, but I get two turns to blog this time, so I’ll finish filling you in on my special Auntie Sadie the next time, ok?
