On this Selfie Sunday, Sadie is excited to share with you her new Summer hat! Besides being totally adorable, I’m hoping the hat will help keep the sun out of her eyes when we’re relaxing out on the deck. During this photo session Sadie grabbed one of her squeaky balls and started running around the house playing, while wearing the hat. So I think it’s safe to say that Sadie is perfectly happy with her new fashion accessory.
This holiday season I’ve decided to switch out Sadie’s living room dog bed with a more festive reindeer dog bed. At first Sadie wasn’t sure she liked her new reindeer bed. She didn’t really want to sleep in it or lay in it. But one day as she was looking for a good place to bury a treat, she discovered a much better use for her new dog bed. Between the side bumpers and the bottom cushion of the bed is a little space that is perfect for hiding things! Thankfully Sadie is not the kind of dog that likes to hide other people’s belongings, so aside from her treats, Sadie had only one item in mind for her new hiding spot – her little squeaky soccer balls.
It’s now become a daily game for Sadie and I to play, which I call the reindeer game. When Sadie gets in the mood to play, she squeaks her ball for a while and then runs and places it in her reindeer bed. If I’m not paying attention, she then whines until I come over to do my part. I stuff the ball firmly in the crevice of the reindeer bed and then flip the bed over. Sadie immediately starts digging into the underside of the bed. She knows she has to get her reindeer flipped back over to get the ball out, but sometimes she just enjoys the digging for a bit. Then she head butts the bed until she gets the right leverage to flip it. Once the reindeer is right side up again, Sadie can then dig her ball out and start all over again. Take a look at the videos below to see the reindeer game in action!
I’m not sure what can be said about a hat for dogs with a jack-o-lantern on top. Sadie looks cute wearing it, but she can look adorable in just about anything. It was an impulse buy – on clearance of course. All I can say is that Sadie now has a glittery pumpkin hat to match my glittery pumpkin Halloween decorations.
Today is Mad Hatter Day and Sadie has picked out the perfect hat! This fun holiday, created in honor of the numbers written on the hat of Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter, encourages everyone to wear a silly hat all day. Who can resist smiling and laughing on a day when your co-workers, classmates, and even your pets walk around in crazy headgear? Sadie chose this lovely top hat with bunny ears to wear today. We were both all smiles while Sadie played catch in her Mad Hatter Day outfit.
I thought this sunflower hat would be the perfect fashion accessory for my little Sadie. It’s adorable, it has sunglasses, what more could you ask for? But in some of these photos my Sadie does not seem to be enjoying her new hat as much as I am. You might be thinking, “Poor, Sadie, forced to wear a stupid hat that is probably too tight or uncomfortable.” But believe it or not, it’s not the hat that has Sadie looking so pouty. It’s the grass. My dog would rather be a person most days. And as most people would agree, it’s much better to sit on a comfy chair than on the grass. So as soon as I allowed Sadie to get off the grass and onto the chair, she was smiling ear to ear, even in her silly sunflower hat.
