Happy Birthday Sadie

Today is Sadie's third birthday. As her mum, I thought we would celebrate with a bit of a "This is your life" -type photo montage.

The pictures of Sadie the breeder sent us. Who wouldn't fall instantly in love with that pup?!?!?

Sadie spent her first few days with us playing and lounging. Come to think of it, that is still how she spends her days!

Here is Sadie trying on her doggles (they help protect her blind eye when we hike through tall grass). Isn't she stylish?

Sadie also graduated (twice) from obedience. Once on her own and once as a repeat to make it easier on Boatie!

Of course, I would be remiss if I didn't mention a few of Sadie's favorite activities.

Helping with yard work,

playing on the beach,


playing in mud puddles,


and sleeping!

Happy Birthday Sadie!!!

New Years Eve Snowshoeing

For New Years Eve, we went snowshoeing with our Mom, Dad and Grandpa. We went on some trails in the mountains north of Idaho City. It took us about an hour and a half to drive there, but the long ride was worth it. We love snowshoeing!!!

For a while, we stayed on the trail.

But then, getting off the beaten path and bounding through the lovely, deep snow was just too tempting!

By the end of the trip, we were so happy and tired, we slept the whole way home and skipped our usual evening walk.

Happy New Years!
Sadie and Boatie
