On a walk out by a lake,
Should we get a dog?
Is this a task we can undertake?
It can’t be that hard,
Let them out to pee and poo,
Fill their bowl with water,
And some healthy doggie food
We waited with anticipation,
For our puppy to arrive,
We knew we’d call her Sadie,
And soon she was by our side
Now by our side we always find her,
A “velcro dog” through and through,
Do you have to use the bathroom?
Well, Sadie’s coming too!
Raising puppy Sadie wasn’t easy,
Casualties were designer pumps and a coffee table,
But ask us if we can imagine life without her,
And we’ll tell you we’re not able
Today she turns three years old,
She now has some white fur on her chin,
But every day we wake up with this dog,
We know an adventure is about to begin
Her energy level is unsurpassed,
Not even the Energizer Bunny can compete,
She’s a crazy nut-job doggie,
Generous with kisses and fast on her feet
She likes to cuddle up at night,
And waits for us to tuck her into bed,
Sometimes she thinks our pillows…
Are meant for her head
Sadie loves her toys,
And thinks that you should too,
She’ll bring them to you one by one,
Until you throw one across the room
She can sit, stay, shake and lie down,
Even fetch a ball or two,
But bring that ball right back?
Well now the joke’s on you!
Sadie is a true comedian,
And makes us laugh with her antics,
She runs into glass doors,
And chases laser pointers, feeling frantic
She also senses when you’re sad,
And cuddles up real close,
Placing her front paws on your shoulders,
Reaching up on her tip toes
A hug from Sadie is like nothing else,
She makes us smile every day,
This dog has captured our hearts,
In an undeniable way
Happy 3rd Birthday to Sadie!
