Sadie is ready to celebrate the USA this Independence Day! As you can see, she is extra excited about her Patriotic head gear!
Happy 4th of July!
At this time of year I always get that old song stuck in my head – Yankee Doodle Dandy. Sadie was posing in her patriotic outfit the other day and to get her attention to face the camera I kept calling out, “Hey Sadie, over here Yorkie Doodle!” I never realized before how close her nickname sounds to Yankee Doodle. Doesn’t she make the cutest Yorkie Doodle Dandy?
As Independence Day approaches, I look forward to celebrating the season with fireworks. I know that many dogs have problems with the loud noises associated with fireworks, but luckily for me, Sadie doesn’t mind them at all. Although the loud noises don’t upset her, Sadie does get nervous about being in a new place with crowds of people. All we need to solve that problem is arrive a little early and let Sadie sniff around and get comfortable. Normally it’s kind of boring and frustrating waiting for fireworks to begin anyway (you just know they never start on time), but with Sadie to keep me company and explore the park or parking lot we’re sitting in, the time passes much more quickly and Sadie gets more relaxed with her new setting. By the time the fireworks begin, Sadie is happy to sit back and enjoy the show with me. I never thought that seeing fireworks could get better, but seeing fireworks as part of a fun adventure with Sadie makes it that much more pawesome.
