Arrival Story: When I met Sadie Mae she was one of three foster puppies that were very small for their breed. Her foster mom was a wonderful lady that had just had a baby and she had three rottie puppies eating everything in her back yard. She had rescued them from a back yard breeder but had come to a point where she knew she would have to place them or send them to a shelter. I had told her that I would come by and meet them and I would help her find them a wonderful home as I had worked rescue for quite a few years and I specialized in placing rotts.
When I saw them I noticed her sister Kokomo first as she was the largest of the remaining litter and a very self assured puppy and I knew my husband would fall in love with her the minute they met. As I talked to their foster mom Sadie Mae came to me, put her paws on my lap and looked me in the eyes and I knew at that moment that I had found my soul mate. When I left that day I had two puppies instead of one in my SUV. When I arrived home my husband met me outside waiting to meet his new puppy. I gave Kokomo to him and told him wait I forgot something. When I retrived Sadie Mae from the truck I thought he was going to have puppies himself. I told him Sadie Mae was just with us until I could find her an appropriate home. That was nearly two years ago and Kokomo now lives in Elgin with a friend of mine and Sadie sleeps by our bed everynight.
Bio: When I first rescued Sadie Mae I did not realize that she would do so much to change my life. As my health failed I became more and more dependent on her to do the tasks that I had always thought of as everyday things. When I had my first heart attack she was there for me. Without her I would not be here today to tell this story. She brought me the phone and lay by me until help arrived. Now I cannot imagine being without her. She makes my life so much easier and she helps me have the quality of life that everyone deserves. From simple everyday tasks of laundry or picking up around the house to bringing me my shoes. And the big things like giving me the courage to leave my home by myself. I no longer have to fear that something will go wrong because she is with me to watch over me.
It's been a really RUFF week for me. I had to spend a night away from Mom and Dad. My adventure began with a tummy ache and then I threw up on Mom's carpet. By the way don't do that or the folks act real grossed out. Just cause I did that Mom said it was time for a trip to the vet. We went to a brand new place and they seemed to like me real well. Ya know they seemed like real nice folks except right after I got there they wanted to put that thing under the nubby. I do not understand why some people get a kick out of putting that thing under my nubby but they do. You know just when you think you got the humans figured out they do something starnge again. I did meet some new friends this week but it looks like it's gonna take me a while to get them trained. I couldn't get one of them to give up a cookie even after I promised not to up chuck on their floor and worse yet they told Mom to cut out my goodies for a while. Oh what's a girl to do? No bow-wow-brownies and no chicken dog puffs. ( She sighs heavily )
I could tell that Mom was real worried when we were there cause she kept crying. Would ya have guessed that Mom's a softie. My tummy hurt real bad though so I guess it scared her. I know she would never have left me if she wasn't very worried cause Mom never leaves me.
I got to go home for the weekend and stay and that made me happy. They told Mom that I howled. Mom thought that was funny cause I hardly ever even bark. Hey a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. Hee-hee-hee. Yep folks works everytime.
Mom wants me to thank all my friends for their prayers, bones and rosettes ya'll left. I am doing better right now I still cannot have my favorite goodies but that's ok cause when I get well Mom promised to bake me some brownies so I know everything will be just fine. Now I have incentive to get better. cause just think before you know it I will be rolling in the brownies.
OK!!! She's doing it again. Obviously no one has had a talk with Mom yet. What is it, you people don't like me or what.
She decided to go on vacation without me. A whole four days and to add insult to injury she left me home with my two legged sisters and that yappy brat Sushi. If she keeps it up I'm gonna run away from home!! That will teach her. My only problem is I can't seem to find a big enough backpack to carry all my Mealbones in. And worse yet someone keeps locking the backgate and I can't seem to work the lock.
Oh, but she took Dad with her. Again I'm begining to wonder if she really does like him better. She let him go to the beach, swim and eat nacho's and everything. She never lets me eat nacho's, she says they give me gas. Obviously she hasn't tried to sleep on Dad's side of the bed after a nacho feast. If she did he would never get nacho's or pizza.
Then she even went out on a boat, does she really think I wouldn't enjoy a boat ride, NO!!! I would rather sit home and veg out. NOT!!!
That's ok though cause I made my sisters feel real bad and I got extra peanut butter biscuits and belly rubs. And guess what I even slept on Dad's pillow while he was gone. I wish someone would have bathed me then I could have shook on his bed and dried myself off on his bedspread. That would have been fun and he really hates it when I do that.
Well I better close for now I hear Mom in the kitchen and it's starting to smell real good in here. She better fix something good if she doesn't want me to tell on her again.
Thanks for listening and now try doing something about it. This kind of abuse should not be allowed to go on.
Mom's slept in this morning so I finally got a chance to get to the computer while she wasn't watching. I tried to type this myself but the pencil keeps falling out of my mouth and I keep hitting the wrong keys. I really got to work on my computer skills.
I woke my two-legged Sis up to help me out as she loves me very much and will do anything I ask if I look cute enough at her.
Mom says I can't write in my diary as I complain about her too much. But she just keeps messing up and won't listen when I tell her she is wrong about the way she treats me.
I am hoping someone will sit her down and have a long talk with her about the abuse she makes me suffer through.
Mom had the nerve to take my sister Sushi to work with her. She didn't just take her she left me at home. Not just once but twice. Then just when I think I have escaped the little yappy brat, my two legged sister ( sorry about that Sis ) shows up with Sushi for a puppy class.
Everyone at work makes such a big deal about her when she comes in. They run around picking her up and giving her dog biscuits and belly rubs. Those are my dog biscuits and belly rubs!!! Who does Sushi think she is stealing everyone's attention. These are my people it took me a year to get them all trained and now she is using all my hard work and sucking up all their attention.
Big deal so she's cute but can she balance a biscuit on her nose or push a shopping cart. NO!!! All she can do is sit, down and stay. So what's all the fuss about. Any puppy can do that with one paw tied behind their back.
Now Mom has been trying to get her camera workin so she can get pictures of Sushi to put on my web page. And worse yet she told Sushi that she will get a web page of her own. Mom worked all day yesterday trying to get those pictures downloaded. I just laid there quietly and laughed behind my paws. What Mom doesn't know is I deleted the camera program from her computer and she is not gonna get those pics. But that will be our little secret. LOL
Well I better go as Mom is starting to move around. But just remember me and the hardships I have to suffer and if you ever meet my Mom just tell her. Bad, Bad, Very Bad!!!!
