Sadie’s Outdoor Home

 Our Sadie has really grown and I had forgotten how smart these dogs really are.    She’ll be two in October and she’s fully grown but not as big as I expected her to get.  Since we didn’t get her as a new puppy we’re assuming that she was a runt which in our case that’s wonderful.  Our runts have turned out to be the best of the breed! 

She has become quite the guard dog and alerts us when someone comes on the farm, except for our kids and granddaughter.

She has also started hunting all on her own. This month alone she has treed several fox squirrels and a coon. To our dismay several weeks back she found her first skunk and could not understand why she wasn’t allowed in the house. Daily there is chase after the ever present chipmunks, aka, ground squirrels. She never catches them but she hasn’t quit trying.

There’s a chipmunk under that propane tank but I can’t reach it!!

She rarely wants to sleep in the house anymore and I think it’s because she’ll miss something. Her crate is just outside the front door and it’s full of fresh hay and some of her toys.

Sadie’s bed just out the front door. I’m sure during the summer months it will be moved off the porch to the shade of a big maple!!

    Oh, Rita, what fun to read about Sadie instead of all the bad stuff happening these days. She sounds like quite a character! Obviously has hunting blood in her. If she’s already brought home a skunk you may have to start hoarding tomato juice instead of t.p.! 😏
