Meet Sadie Rose

We have several pets at our house. All of them have come from shelters. I wasn't really looking for a new one when we volunteered at the shelter in another county (it's much friendlier than ours!) on Monday. But one was looking for us.

We currently have some pretty cool dogs--and a cat that tolerates us.

Sasha, almost 2 and Travis, almost 3

Travis (these pictures were taken right after his first haircut. He's much scruffier now.)

We recently lost a cat we'd had for 16 years.

Today we went to walk dogs and play with cats at the shelter.

This one is the one we adopted

Tyler is a cat magnet! 

The black and white dog I was walking was a real sweetie. She's between 4&8 years old and ended up at a rescue place in 2014. She was transferred to this shelter a month or so ago. It's time for her to have a home. I had decided if we were to ever add another dog to the family, he/she would have to be at least a year old. That way we'd know how big the dog would really be and know the personality, plus he/she would be house trained and ready to play. It would also have to be a dog that had waited but not been chosen. 
 She is sweet, playful, house trained and walks well on a leash.
After some debate, we've named her Sadie Rose. Her name was Baby, but I can't see me yelling that out the door, and we give our pets people names. 

After some disputes over territory etc, they dogs decided they could be around each other when I got out my crunchy Chinese noodles to share.
 She is the biggest of the four, weighing in at 26 pounds. Sasha is the smallest at 11 pounds.
