LOL, Big Bad Sadie
« on: March 13, 2006, 02:29:37 pm »
I don't know if I should really laugh at this but those of you who met my little Spitfire yesterday will appreciate this ;)

So I went home at lunch to walk Miss Sadie today as usual. We're out walking and there's a whole mess of construction workers working on my neighbors place. They were being pretty obnoxious as far as comments. Although, I have to admit it must be a pretty funny sight seeing a woman in a business suit walking a Newf in heels. So Sadie turns around and looks at me like "No worries Momma, I got this". She gets directly in front of me and stands with her legs totally outstretched, puffs up her (nonexistent) chest and just STARES these guys down. She didn't growl or anything, I don't think she was being aggressive, she just stood there. This one guy says to me "Is that an attack dog?" I couldn't help but laugh. Sadie loves everyone. I don't think I've ever seen her NOT wag her tail and want to say hello to someone...unti l today. But they turned around and went right back to work and I swear to God she stuck her nose up and walked away. I don't think she knows she's still little, and I didn't have the heart to tell her she isn't scary so I just let her think she's big and bad ;D

Does this look like an attack dog to you?
Dear Lord,
Just for today, let me be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.

that's funny.  I bet she could tear into someone if she wanted to or thought you were in danger.

Haha you go girl...protect your momma against those jerks!!!  Kali's extremely protective of us, if you go to harm one of her people she will probably go for the kill.

After putting up with the big boy dogs yesterday those  human men would be no problem for her to take care of.

I think the big kids taught her a thing or two this weekend ;) She's been behaving beautifully. And then she pulled that "I got your back Ma" stunt yesterday. I hope that's not a bad sign but really all she did was stare them down. I couldn't help but laugh at my tough little cookie! She's totally fearless! She was too cute being all protective of her Mom! Even though she's the OPPOSITE of intimidating (ssshhhh, don't tell her! :D)

Oh, Sadie, Sadie!  Such a tough girl!!

My one and only female Newf, Lucille was far tougher than her male counterparts.  FAR more protective.... and agressive (okay, for a Newf ::)).  The only protection Cowboy would give is if a bad guy tripped over him coming after me..... :P

Well it's funny because she's never done anything but wag her tail and drag me over to say hi to people on our walks. I think she must have sensed that I was uncomfortable. Cowboy would too protect you! He'd fling his super slobber and stop the bad guy in his tracks ;D

yeah.....they'd slip on it!!! :D :D :D

Chester does a pretty good job.  He'd whack 'em with his tail....and I don't mean a Tony Soprano 'whack'!  It would be a continous whacking though!!! ;D ;D ;D

Yup that's my girl, tough as nails - all 34 pounds of her. I could almost hear "Eye of the Tiger" playing in the background. ;D

Hi,

She must have solved her Identity crisis, all the time with those kitties must have reeked havoc with her psychie. Now she has seen the Newfie light and her breeding will shine through. Next time she needs a little Newfie reassurance, Big Cuz Winslow would be happy to watch her back!!

LOL! I'm sure she looked at the big kids and was like "Whoa, I'm gonna be that big someday! I better practice!" She still loves her kitties though and makes sure they don't miss out on any opportunities to be slobbered on;)
