My Close Friend

210916Hi, my name is Brenna and this is a photo of me and my dog Sadie. She is part Lab and part Australian Shepherd. She is about 9 years old. I help take care of Sadie by filling her food and water bowls, playing with her outside and sometimes walking her around the block. I like to play tug-of-war with her, take photos of her, run around, and just cuddle with her. I like how she can sense when I need friend or someone to talk to or just have a nice silent companion. Plus, I like having a friend to play with outside when no one else can.

Sadie likes to take our stuffed animals, she thinks they are her puppies. She actually cleans them (licks them) and carries them around. If someone tries to take them away from her she will growl. Ha! Ha!

Sometimes she will just sit there and stare at you when you are asking her to do something. You could almost say that she is laughing at you in her head.

Having a pet is like having a friend, a really close friend. They can make you laugh, smile, feel safe and comfortable. I have grown up with a pet since I was about 4 or 5 years old, so me and Sadie have a really close relationship. I am really glad that we got this fantastic dog to become part of our family.

Do you have a furry friend?
