Sadie’s dressed and ready to participate in the festivities for the big event today, Red Nose Day. If you haven’t heard about it, Red Nose Day is an annual charity fundraiser, where participants don red noses and use comedy and laughter to promote awareness and donations for a variety of charities benefitting children in need. Sadie and I did our part by making a small donation and purchasing the official #RedNose Sadie is modeling in these pictures. You can find out more about Red Nose Day at rednoseday.org.
Red Nose Day has certainly brought some smiles and laughter to my house. As you can imagine, convincing a dog to wear a fake nose is no easy task. After some initial sniffing and lots of convincing on my part, I finally got Sadie to keep her #RedNose on for more than two seconds. When I turned away to grab my camera, I expected Sadie to try to get the nose off. I did not expect for Sadie to leap onto my lap instead. The rest of the photo shoot felt like a comedy routine. I would put Sadie on the floor and tell her to sit, but as soon as I clicked the camera, Sadie would run onto my lap. In the end, I was lying on the floor hysterically laughing with the camera in one hand while holding Sadie back with the other, trying to keep her far enough away from my lap for the camera to focus on her face.
