Woof to my friends.....
You remember when I last got my mom to write in my diary for me that we had Colbe visiting with us? Well, he went home with his mom and dad....they found a new home in Baton Rouge....I was sad to see him leave if I tell the truth, although, I do not tell my mother those things (she might think I would like to have another friend for real!)...Colbe's parents had to start over again and even though he was with us for almost 3 months, they still had no home, no car and no jobs but God was good to them and found them a place in Baton Rouge. I told Colbe I knew it was gonna be alright and if he ever wanted to come back for a visit, just let my mama know and we would come get him.
Now, remember that other issue that my mom has...the one about graduate school? Well, that has become my worst nightmare. There is this machine that she sits in front of all the time and all I can see are her fingers moving and angry looks on her face most of the time. She stays on it all the time and I don't even get to sit in her lap while she is working on whatever it is. She did tell me one time "Sadie, you cannot stand on my laptop", well, my understanding of laps is that that is exactly where you stand, so what's up with that? She tells me that this will all be over very soon, like I even understand the concept of time....don't dogs just live in the moment? And my other issue is....she KNOWS I DO NOT LIKE CHILDREN so what does she pick for a career? CHILDREN!!!!!!! My mama loves me, I can tell by how she scratches my back for me every single day, whenever I need it....she gives me a greenie every single day and I know they come from Dog Heaven.....she takes a bath with me instead of slamming me off into that big white tub by myself....(some of my friends and her friends laugh at her because of that but I know that means she loves me)....anyway, I just am learning about how to be patient (I didn't know dogs knew what that meant but she has been watching the Dog Whisperer and he says we do know what that means) and I know that after a while, we can go back to our old life of just playing with each other. She tells me she graduates in November this year (whatever and whenever that is)....sometimes, she is funny cause she acts like I understand everything she is telling me!.........
Okay, she says this is all the time she has and has to get back to work on her "school stuff"....I am gonna pout and make her feel bad so she will give me a nice chew bone.....these mamas are such suckers for that sad look....
Hope all you guys and girls are doing good and I am so glad my mama remembered that I like to go on the internet just like she does and look at all my friends......Later, Sadie Moon

My mom got us a new friend to have with us for a while. I made him think I wasn't gonna be too terribly friendly at first, you know you have to get the upper hands with these big dogs (male too!) from the get-go. His name is Colbe and he is from St. Bernard Parish where his mama and daddy lost everything they owned, even their car. Colbe wants to share mine but I don't like it one bit, I can tell you. (even though really, he is a nice guy.....kinda young and rowdy with big feet and long legs but sweet) he is a chocolate lab and he is kinda small even for a big dog. He loves to chase balls, (my mama used to play with me all the time with my maddogs and now HE is getting all the attention). My mom tells me we have to open our hearts and home to Colbe because he went through an awful time down there in St. Bernard Parish.
We all go for walks when mom comes in from class, sometimes in the early afternoon, sometimes in the evenings and you know what? colbe is kinda fun to run with. He will chase me when he is not stuck up my mama's butt (fraid she is gonna walk off and leave him? we live in the country, nut...she is not going anywhere) my mom told me to quit being sarcastic that he doesn't know any better right now and he just wants to be close to someone. Now i chase him when he is bringing the ball back to mom. got more response from mom when i did that instead of just sitting around barking at him for my mom not playing with me.
We are not sure how long we are gonna have colbe, we haven't heard from his owners in weeks. sometimes, i think we are gonna get to keep colbe and mom says that these people are doing good to take care of themselves at this point, and we will do whatever we need to do for colbe and his family. Which means, he is moving to the new house with us..we took him out there one day while susan and mom were cleaning up and he acted like he wanted to run his legs down to the nub. mellie and i relaxed in the shade after we had sniffed around and made sure everything was okay for us. i even let him ride in my car as long as he stayed in the backseat..he is too big for the front seat, my mom says.
anyway, now i have a big guy friend that likes to run and we are both getting stronger and sleeker (my mom told me that word) every day. and mom feels much better too after walking. we get to smell for as long as we want too. the walk is through the field and it smells like deer come out there every day while we are inside. i know they do...
gotta run now...mom has got to go back to town for school and she says the computer has to be turned off now..guess i will go lay down for a while...

Hi you guys and gals...I finally got my mom to at least put one diary entry on this site since everyone has been so nice and loving on here. She tells me every night how thankful she is that my friend, Dumplin, told me about this place. I have been telling her all along I was meant for stardom but she just thinks I am full of it!
Now she is telling me she doesn't know what to write except what a wonderful, loving, loyal, faithful, caring, sweet dog I am....I told her that was good, keep going.
I know I am an individual with an attitude and my mom calls me "twisted sister" at times but I know that is a term of endearment 'cause she calls, Hannah, my human cousin (my mom's first grandchild) twisted sister as well. Sometimes I don't really understand human folks but I just know that they love us and tell us all kinds of things that about 75% of the time, they are using words way over my head and still I sit there and act like I am interested and I guess in a way I always am...If it makes my mom feel better, then what's it gonna hurt for me to listen.
My mom started graduate school this past summer and I can tell you my life went into a downward spiral. First, the divorce, then we moved to Maryland to live with that nasty little Hannah, but her mom is my mom's only daughter, and I have to admit, mom was much happier once she decided that life was about living and we got on with ours....then we move back down here to LA and she decides that she has just got to be a teacher....MORE CHILDREN! I really do not like children except those that stay out of my circle but my mom really loves them and says she knows she wants to do this...WHATEVER, she also says I am supposed to just follow wherever she leads me to, all that dog thing about "loving, trusting companion" stuff.
So for now, we are in Ruston where we have been before with my friend, melody, and her mom Susan (my mom's old college roommate..still here...also single...I really don't think either of them is looking for anyone but I can tell you I miss my Dad lots of times)
Okay, okay, she is telling me to quit reading over her shoulder and that she has to get off this computer and get some studying done and other things that are just taking her attention away from me...she says to stop whining and there are lots of animals worse off than me and I should be grateful...(I am but you know I have a reputation to protect...ME...ME...ME thing) so maybe she will write again, maybe she won't but at least she did this for me. She really would do anything for me, 'cause she says I am her heart (altho, Hannah named her JuJu) still I am her heart...
BYE for now....Sadie Moon...(when I want to be, if I don't I just pick a name and act like she is talking to someone else!!!WOOF WOOF)
