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?
It’s over 100 degrees out today, for the third day in a row. Definitely the type of weather that guarantees tongues will be out this Tongue Out Tuesday. But it is just too hot to play outside today, so Sadie decided to try on her special patriotic outfit in preparation for Flag Day tomorrow. Luckily the heat is supposed to break tonight, so Sadie and I plan on enjoying a nice Flag Day walk to enjoy our city’s special holiday display of flags.
This Veteran’s Day Sadie and I are making sure to honor all of the brave canine veterans who give their lives to serve and protect this country, just like all of the human veterans out there. These photos of Sadie were taken at the only official memorial to military dogs in the continental US. (There is also a US War Dog Memorial on the island of Guam.) While it doesn’t have the names of the fallen like some of the human memorials, I think this statue wonderfully portrays the grace of service and the pride that dogs feel in a job well done.
