Did you happen to read the last Stories With Sadie? She got into some mischief while Mr. Cottage and I were out and about that day.

This is what Sadie really love. She loves being with us, and preferably in our laps. When she’s not doing the above with us, then she’s playing with her toys or taking naps.
Recently I had to go grocery shopping while Mr. Cottage had to go somewhere else. When I walked in through the door, carrying some grocery bags, I noticed Sadie’s new toy lamb on the floor, but then right next to it was MY SHEEP!
If you missed the story on this sheep, you can read it here. But bottom line, it’s an antique, and there it was on the floor next to her lamb. I picked it up and put it back, but had to hurry out and get the rest of the groceries.
When I looked at my sheep, the nick on the back of its ear is the first thing I noticed! It’s been on our coffee table and she’s never been on it.
But then I realized, she probably stood up on the end of the coffee table and reached over and grabbed it. It is fluffy soft on the outside, so I’m thinking she thought it was another toy.
When I sat the sheep back where it was, it looked great and you couldn’t see the chip on the back of its ear. But not trusting Sadie, I moved it higher up on one of our bookcases.
A short time later, as in the same day, I noticed some of the scrabble pieces had fallen. Without a doubt, I know she got back up on the edge and tried to look for the sheep, thus disturbing the scrabble pieces.
Last week, I washed some red rugs and put them in the dryer. Afterwards, I threw the lint into our bathroom wastebasket. That evening, while I’m on the couch, Mr. Cottage asked me what was on our living room carpeting. You would be correct if you thought it was the red lint, torn into pieces. It left a red stain on the carpeting from her playing with them. We sprayed the area and placed a damp white cloth over it for a few hours. Fortunately, it all came out…breathing a sigh of relief!
But we love her and we know she loves us! She’s a keeper, regardless of a few of her mischievous adventures.
