Sadie Update

Today is 14 days that Sadie has been with us in her forever home.  She is doing great.  We are still on supervised outside time - mostly off leash.  The leash comes out when she chases chickens/guineas.  That does not happen often.  I notice it is more when the chickens run from her or just run in general.  I tell her no and put her back on the leash as a sort of time out.

Obviously Toby and Sadie adore each other.  I expected more jealousy on his part, but overall he understands he still gets his share of treats and plenty of pets.  This week Sadie has started to enjoy her morning egg.  We have an abundance of eggs so it is a nice breakfast for the dogs. 

We are in the middle of the three weeks when a rescue starts to get more comfortable and tests the limits/rules.  I see that in the chicken runs and sometimes pretending she cannot hear us.  She uses her potty pad at night.  We did hire mom to dogsit on Saturday when we went out for a couple of hours.  Sadie still has enough puppy in her to want to chew on stuff, but she is not familiar with toys.  We are super happy with our decision to adopt again!
