BLOG – GIFT DAY 325 :: a month of inspiration :: a prayer for sadie

21 Nov

Today, in my month-long nod to inspiration, I share a prayer.
For a puppy.

Meet Miss Sadie.

At least that’s what we call her for now.
Sadie is ten weeks old and she entered our lives last night. We have inadvertently through a long string of odd occurrences *unofficially* become foster parents.

Sadie was a mistake. 
But she is totally adorable. 

Her parents are paper-carrying Golden Retriever and German Shepherd certified dogs. She is all black with a little ruffle of white fur on her chest.

We have papered the local vets offices with flyers and are spreading the word. In the meantime, I reached out to my dog guru friend Susan from Dawgma Gallery to get some tips on being a puppy foster parent.

I want to make sure we give Miss Sadie what she needs and appropriately acclimate her to our dogs.

I also want to make sure I don’t get too attached.
I have a tendency to go “gaga for dogas” ….as you probably already know.

Pup is annoyed by all the hoopla and doesn’t want to be bothered.
Brady is all play all the time and just can’t wait to run in the yard with Sadie.

And I am convinced there is a family out there who need Miss Sadie.

Even though we were told that this puppy was a mistake, there is a place in my heart that knows she is really something else.

I think she is a Christmas miracle waiting to happen. 

There must be an amazing and loving family looking for a bright spirit to enter their lives this holiday. (If you know one please send them my way.)

Until the phone rings with the right family waiting for a cute pup, I’m over here saying a little prayer for Sadie.

Because we could all use a little prayer and a little love…. and a good home.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless!}
Jamie

    She is just adorable! I hope she finds her perfect home. Sometimes we are just a way station for the animals that come into our lives as they move on to their perfect homes. And that is a good thing to be sometimes.

      Yes, I like that… hoping she finds a good home soon. Actually, the best home!
