Things have been a bit busy around here and some of you may have noticed I haven’t been as active. Mr. Cottage and I took Sadie and visited our best friends who live on the other side of our state; and then our oldest son flew in with our daughter-in-law and grandkids from Texas. But right now I’m sharing stories with Sadie about her meeting a new friend.
To a dog, motoring isn’t just a way of getting from here to there, it’s also a thrill and an adventure. The mere jingle of car keys is enough to send most any dog into a whimpering, tail-wagging frenzy. ~Jon Winokur
Sadie loves going on car rides, but this time we were taking her to our friend’s house for a few days and to meet their new dog, Tinker. I know I’ve mentioned that Sadie sometimes has issues about other dogs and barks like crazy at them; so we were a bit concerned how she would react once we met Tinker. Something told me she would probably be fine because we would be in Tinker’s territory.
After a bit of sniffing and getting use to each other, they were like BFF! Seriously, we all had a blast just watching the two of them and how they played and chased each other around. I’m sure non-dog lovers won’t understand this, but Sadie and Tinker provided tons of entertainment for us. We all talked about how much our small black dogs look alike.
We both had white dogs before. Annie is on the left and Molly is on the right.
They lost Annie this past winter and adopted Tinker. Other than some of the longer hair on her face and ears and long legs, she and Sadie are very similar. Isn’t she a cutie!
Unfortunately, Tinker’s head isn’t in the photo, but I love how Sadie is waiting for more adventure with Tinker.
I love the above photos. Tinker got tuckered out and crashed. Sadie’s just looking at her in the photo to the left, and by the center photo she’s starting to lower her head and she finally crashed in the last photo!
Unfortunately, all good things come to an end and we said our goodbyes.
Sadie was so exhausted, she slept almost the entire drive home. She looks so uncomfortable with the way her head is laying on my duffel bag, but I don’t think she cared.

After arriving home, she crashed again on our sofa. Such an exhausting and exciting few days for her!
