Quite a few of you have asked what Ryan and Sadie did while I was in Europe. Considering the fact that these two are best buddies, they spent a lot of time together. Some of you may recall Ryan’s first guest post when he talked about how they’re basically connected at the hip whenever I leave.
When I was away, Ryan told me that the two of them enjoyed many trips to the dog park, hikes at Weikwa Springs and double cheeseburgers from McDonald’s (her preference for the chicken sandwich was ignored due to cost).
One thing they also did? Went to PetSmart and got Sadie an obnoxious bright orange collar and leash set.
Please ignore the fact that Sadie looks like she’s 85 years old in the above picture and direct your attention to the psychedelic orange thing around her neck.
Ryan has wanted to deck Sadie out in neon orange or camo gear since she was a puppy. Fortunately I’ve always been at the store with Ryan and talked him off the edge by reminding him that Sadie is a girl and we are not hunters.
Well, this time his dad was with him at the pet store, not me, so Sadie came home looking like a little huntress. We took her to the dog park today and she looked like a genuine field dog… a male field dog.
After spending a good hour at the dog park laughing at Sadie’s glow-in-the-dark/ DayGlo collar set, we came home to enjoy a dinner that cooked itself!
The main ingredient of our tacos was taco-seasoned pulled chicken that we prepared the same way we usually make slow cooker tacos with ground chicken, only we used two chicken breasts instead.
We topped whole wheat tortillas with the chicken, lettuce, cheese and fresh salsa and rolled everything up before digging in.
Sadie was all about the chicken and since I felt bad about her looking like a boy at the dog park I made sure to share some of the leftover meat with her.
Heeere she comes!
Time to pack my lunch and grab somethin’ sweet before settling on the couch for the rest of the night.
