My EMBARK DNA test is here and I am hoping to find out I am a Great Dane or a Doberman WHAT DO YOU THINK?
I will let everyone know what my tests come back with. Mom says I might be a munchkin but I do not believe her.
I was invited to a puppy prom! WOW, my tail wagged so hard as I opened a box with a wrist corsage given to me by my BF @littletuckerpup Then I received another package from my good pal Lucy @goldengoose_retriever who knew I had nothing to wear … she sent me this wonderful fairytail cotton candy dress. Where did all this waggable stuff come from you ask… the wonderful people at The Birthday Puppy. @thebirthdaypuppy
This puppy Prom is all for a good cause, to raise money for those less fortunate pups.
Always remember this: Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.
This is true of everything, one small gesture in life can make such a difference. Be kind to each other and help as many as you can be they two legged four legged or even 100 legs… even a centipede might need help.
So put on your dancing paws! Love @sadiemiki
It is almost February and my mom says love is in the air. That means I will begin to smell the woof-derful nose twitching kitchen smells of sugar cookies and my favorite dog heart cookies. BUT this year I got something special in the mail. A fun company call thebirthdaypuppy.com sent me this box from a secret crush … a very special delivery.
It was LOVE in a BOX.
If you have a secret crush you can shop at cupid’s corner… they have a ton of stuff I know your crush would just love. I got a rose that actually tells me secrets in little squeaks and a beautiful XOXO banana. My only dilemma is my rose won’t squeal on my secret crushes name until the big reveal on the website. I feel just like the bachelorette on TV!!!
When a company sends a box of goodies just because you have to pay attention. Sadie just loves to get boxes in the mail and I think she can read because when a box comes with the chewy.com logo she gets extra excited.
The mailman had delivered a chewy’s box h=just a few weeks ago and we were not expecting another box. The doorbell rang and off Sadie went to greet whoever might be there. It was the mailman holding a Chewy.com box. Excitement filled the doorway, tails wagged so hard a breezeway was created.
How do you tell a dog that this might be a mistake LOL. As we called customer service to say we think there may be a problem and some other puppy’s box was sent to us by mistake I can see the glares coming my way. “what are you doing on the phone when there is a package for me right here in front of your nose?”
The facts came out … Chewy’s Customer Service announced the box was a gift from them to Sadie! What can you say about kind gestures … they make someone’s day. They brighten up the world. They make everything a little bit happier. I know that it made Sadie’s day fur-sure. Thank you Chewy.com you are the best!

LOVE comes in all sizes, shapes, and forms. But mom says I have something called “Unconditional Love” and that is the best kind of love you can have.
I looked it up and the definition is:
Unconditional love is caring about the happiness of another person without any thought for what we might get for ourselves.
Yes, this totally rings true for me. I Love my people unconditionally. When they leave for just a second… disappearing into another room I am SO HAPPY TO SEE THEM… I wag my tail with such an enthusiasm that my whole body shakes with joy.
I follow them everywhere to make sure they are safe from any predators. Every time they go into the little room called a bathroom I am there to protect them from monsters that may lurk behind the shower curtain or in the mysterious hole called a toilet. (Who knows what is down there!)
My day totally revolves around them and any adventure we might go on.
So remember the next time you see a four-legged creature wagging their tail or purring a song for you that they are giving you the best gift of all called “unconditional love”. We just call it a way of living.

Thank you, Santa for all my wonderful gifts under the tree this year. I loved the hedgehog that giggles and the lovely free dried treats of Venison and Liver. But unfortunately, there was this one gift that was missing its squeaker. Santa, I think you might be having a mild case of Alzheimer’s because you spelled the word Chew wrong on this box with the lovely red shoes inside. That’s OK Santa, I often forget things too. Sometimes I forget to tell anyone I need to go outside and make a mistake on the carpet. But the real problem with this “chew” toy is it was missing its squeaker. So if you do not mind exchanging this one out for one that works I would really appreciate it.
Merry Christmas to all.
Another year is wrapping up and we are wrapping up all the presents under the tree. Twice this year there has been a lapse in Sadie’s memory about wrapped presents under the tree. In the middle of the night someone, some elf or someone named Sadie has been unwrapping gifts that smell like bones. She claims it is not her but there have been some tell “tail” signs about the house. Bits of soggy paper near her bed, a loss of appetite in the mornings after the treats have been taken by the unknown elf.
If anyone else has this problem with bad elves that eat presents in the middle of the night please let Sadie know as she is trying to convince us that we need to ask Santa to replace the stolen presents under her tree.
Sadie also would like you to know she does have extra holiday cards and would love to send one to you if you send her your address.
Happy Holidays to all and beware of the bad elf.
It was a hard candy kinda night last night when Sadie thought she hit the jackpot and quietly decided to eat an open bag of little “greenies” breath buster bites.
Like any child left alone with their own bag of candy her eyes said one thing and later her tummy said another. So after her YES moment of glory we had to help fix the issue.
We find that the best remedy is a pumpkin chicken broth rice.
Now chicken broth can be a labor intense pressure cooker process but I will tell you the quick way to create it for your furry friend in need of a tummy fix.
1 boneless chicken breast
2-3 cups water (or more depending on your sauce pan – you want to cover the chicken breast in the water when boiling)
3 Tablespoons Organic Pumpkin Puree (not the kind used in pumpkin pies but the organic 100% pure like this one we use Nummy Tum-Tum)
2 cups rice (boiled)
a small dash of salt
Rinse the chicken breast under cold clean water.
Place the chicken breast in a saucepan large enough to hold the chicken breast. Add enough cold clean water 2-3 cup approximately to cover it. Add in a dash of salt.
Bring the water to the boil over high heat.
Reduce the heat to medium once water is boiling and cover the saucepan. Cook approximately 10 minutes over medium heat. Make sure the chicken meat is not pink and cooked properly.
Remove chicken breast from water and allow to rest. At least 5 minutes before shredding into small pieces. I use the leftover water to make my rice.
In another saucepan make your rice mixture.
2 Cups of Rice would need approximately 4 cups or water I
(rice is made at a 2:1 ratio) thus 2 cups water per one cup of rice.
Once the water and rice boils add in your 3 Tablespoons of Pumpkin Puree reduce your heat to very very low, mix well and cover the pan and allow the rice to absorb the water and pumpkin puree approximately 20 minutes depending on your grain of rice.
Once the rice is fluffy, add in your shredded chicken breast and serve in small portions once cool to the touch.
Do not worry if it takes time for your furry friend to be interested in eating again after a upset tummy, the pumpkin chicken broth rice will keep in the fridge and be easily reheated for when s/he is ready. Bone appetit.
My mom loves to cook for me and here are two of my favorite Halloween Treats that I want to share with you. These are great trick or treats for us four legged monsters. First a little image to scare you or make you laugh cause that is what my mom does when I try to be scary… then the recipes.
PUMPKIN APPLE FROZEN DOG TREATS
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 small apple, peeled and remember to remove the core then chopped into small bits
1 tbsp. coconut oil (we use this one)
1 tsp. honey (raw or pure organic honey is the best)
Water 2 small silicone molds (BOO) (skeletons and ghosts)
Add pumpkin puree, apple, coconut oil, and honey to a blender.
Add a little water at a time and blend until smooth and liquefied.
Carefully spoon mixture into molds and freeze until solid.
Bone Chillingly delicious!
Easy as Pumpkin Pie HALLOWEEN DOG TREATS
1 single-serve jar of pumpkin/squash baby food (we used Organic Gerbers)
1/2 to 3/4 cup of rice flour, or other flour of your choice
water as needed
frozen green peas
Preheat oven to 350F or 180C.
Mix baby food in a medium mixing bowl
Incrementally add flour, mixing into a firm dough.
The amount of flour required may vary depending on your individual pumpkin mixture and any optional ingredients your pup has requested.
Hand roll into small balls
Place balls on a lined baking sheet
Flatten gently with your hand or spoon.
To create “pumpkin lines”:
press the flat side of a fork or knife gently in the center, or the curved side of a spoon gently on either side.
Top with a green pea “stem” and gently push into the dough to secure the pea
Bake for approximately 15 minutes.
Cool before serving or storing.
Guaranteed to carve a smile on your pup’s face.
